-Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella are interviewed by Renee in the ring to start the show as a highlight package of Daniel's match with Andrade Almas and the subsequent attack by The Miz and Maryse on the couple last week is shown. We then see a clip of where The Miz and Maryse were calling them out earlier today in an empty arena. Andrade and Zelina then come out onto the ramp and they set up a rematch between Daniel and Almas as we go to commercial.
Daniel Bryan vs Andrade Almas
They start the match off by grappling until Almas drops Bryan with a shoulder block before dropping Bryan with a discus elbow for a quick two count. Almas applies an armbar in the ropes before sending Daniel off of the apron and into the barricade, Almas sending Daniel into the apron before rolling him back into the ring for a quick two count. Daniel sidesteps Almas and he goes flying over the top turnbuckle before Daniel goes for a move off of the apron, but Almas catches him in midair with a dropkick. Bryan then goes for a tope to the outside and crashes onto the ground as we go to commercial.
We return to the action to Almas in control until Bryan crotches Almas on the top turnbuckle and ties him in the tree of woe before hitting several running dropkicks. Almas hits a standing moonsault for a quick two count before the two exchange kicks until Almas sends Daniel head first into the bottom turnbuckle and hitting a running knee attack in the corner. Daniel then counters a hammer lock DDT into a variation of a shining wizard for the pin and the win.
Winner: Daniel Bryan defeats Andrade Almas via pinfall with a shining wizard.
-We get an interview with Charlotte and Becky via satellite where they go back and forth and Charlotte talks about how Becky turned on her.
Naomi vs Peyton Royce
Naomi rocks Peyton with a right hand as soon as the match starts before the referee makes her back away only for Peyton to hit her from behind. Naomi then takes out Billie at ringside before hitting a sunset flip to Peyton for the pin and the win.
Winner: Naomi defeats Peyton Royce via pinfall with a sunset flip.
-After the match The Iconics attack Naomi before Asuka saves her and sends them to the back.
