Bobby Roode vs Dolph Ziggler Two Out of Three Falls Match
Dolph takes Roode down for a quick two count, then Roode dropkicks him before playing to the crowd and teasing his finisher. Dolph counters Roode and backs him into the corner before Roode rolls Dolph up and gets the first fall rather quickly before he sends Dolph out of the ring. Roode sends Dolph into the barricade before they get back in the ring and Dolph hits a superkick for a fall as we go to commercial.
They exchange strikes as we come back from commercial, Roode hitting a uranage for a near fall, then plays to the crowd and teases the Glorious DDT again, but Dolph counters again and DDTs him for a near fall of his own. Roode counters the Zig Zag with a spinebuster, but just as Roode goes for the Glorious DDT Dolph hits a Zig Zag for a near fall. Roode sidesteps Dolph before they counter each other until Roode hits the Glorious DDT for the third fall for the pin and the win.
Winner: Bobby Roode gets the third fall to win the match and gain a spot on the Smackdown! Team at Survivor Series.
