Winners – Rybaxel

BP: Pretty close to the match you expected the teams to have, and it was good work from everyone. Nice to see a slow burn feud here and dissention between the brothers.

Rusev (w/ Lana) vs Big E

E connects with several body shots but Rusev fires right back, then E whips him but Rusev sidesteps him and hits a release German suplex. Rusev splashes E and throws him across the ring, then he goes for another splash but E sidesteps him and counters with a legsweep slam. Rusev crawls to the apron and E spears him down onto the floor, then he rolls him in and goes for a running splash. Rusev hops up and kicks E in the face, then he puts him in the Accolade and makes him tap out.

Winner – Rusev

BP: I won't say this was a better match than Cesaro vs Sheamus, but it was every bit as intense, given the short amount of time they had. Both men looked good and got to show their strength and athletic abililty. Props to Big E for the spear to the floor.
