Money in the Bank Qualifying Match
New Day vs The Bar
Xavier and Cesaro start the match before The Bar start double teaming him as we go to commercial.
Cesaro is in control as we come back from commercial until Xavier sends him out of the ring and tags Big-E in, E dropping Sheamus repeatedly for a quick two count before The Bar hit a double DDT for a near fall. Cesaro puts E in a Boston crab that Xavier breaks up after sending Sheamus into the ring post. E then sends Sheamus out of the ring before hitting a tope to the outside, then Xavier hits a springboard elbow drop for the pin and the win.
Winner: New Day defeat The Bar via pinfall to gain entrance to the Money in the Bank match when Xavier pins Sheamus with a springboard elbow drop.
