Titus O’Neil & Heath Slater vs The Usos 

Titus kicks Jimmy and Slater kicks Jimmy a few times, then Jimmy kicks him but Slater clotheslines him and puts him in a side headlock. Slater hits him in the back and bounces off the ropes, but Jimmy counters with a Samoan drop and sends Slater into the corner. Slater tries to come off the turnbuckles but Jimmy superkicks him, then Jey hits a top rope splash for the win.

Winners – The Usos

Chris Jericho vs Randy Orton

Jericho kicks Orton in the corner and Orton bails outside, so Jericho knocks him off the apron with a springboard dropkick as we go to a break. We get back to see Jericho attacking Orton, then he charges the corner but Orton sidesteps him and dumps him out on the floor. Orton throws Jericho into the steps, then he hits him a few times before applying a headlock, but Jericho breaks it with a side slam. Jericho chops Orton and hits some shoulder tackles, then he heads up top and connects with an elbow smash.

Jericho calls for the Walls but Orton counters, then Jericho connects with an enziguiri for a near fall before setting up another Walls attempt. Orton makes it to the ropes for a break, then he catches Jericho with a hangman’s DDT and calls for a RKO. Orton goes for an RKO but Jericho counters, then the Wyatts’ music cuts in and Orton uses the distraction to hit a RKO for the win.

Winner – Randy Orton

BP: Good match that seemed fresh, even though we’ve seen them fight many times before. I’m fine with Orton getting the win; he’s needed to be built back up since before Wrestlemania, and this helps.
