Our pre-show is underway live from the WWE Studios, beginning with a panel of Charly Caruso, David Otunga and Beth Phoenix. They run down tonight's card before focusing on the Universal Title match. That transitioned to a Paul Heyman promo, with the advocate explaining that after Rollins paid one price on Monday, he'll now pay another at Super ShowDown. Heyman guarantees that Lesnar will leave tonight as the Universal Champion.
Things then shifted to the 50-man battle royal, with Ricochet and Bobby Roode stating their case. The panel next previewed Kingston vs. Ziggler as well as Andrade vs. Finn Balor. An interview with Rollins followed, as the Universal Champion admitted that he's not 100%. However, he's a fighting champion and for that reason, he'll defeat Baron Corbin and keep his title. As for Lesnar, he's "ready for the beast." Back to the battle royal after that, as Heavy Machinery and Rusev had their own say.
The Usos vs. The Revival
Jey and Dawson got this one underway, with the former landing a sharp uppercut early. With Jimmy's entry, The Usos then run wild, clearing the ring and continuing to build momentum until a blind tag allowed The Revival to cut them off. With Jimmy isolated, Dash and Dawson went to work, cornering their foe and hitting some tandem offense along the way. They then slowed things down, grabbing a hold and slowing things down. Jimmy soon evaded though, landing a crisp kick and resetting things.
Both men made it to their corner, with Jey running wild Dawson and hitting some of his signature offense for 2. Dawson then fired back though, looking for some double-team offense until Wilder was cut off. That allowed Jey to seize, scoring a high cross-body for another near-fall. Wilder then distracted the referee though, preventing a clear pin and allowing Dawson to hit a spinebuster for 2. Tandem offense wouldn't follow either, with Jimmy tagging himself in as The Usos rallied via Superkicks, closing the show with simultaneous kicks to Wilder's jaw.
Winners: The Usos
WWE Universal Championship
Seth Rollins (c) vs. Baron Corbin
Feeling out process here early, with the pair eventually locking up as Corbin pushed Rollins back. Seth responded though, rallying with right hands until a knee to the midsection cut him off. Rollins fired back again, scoring a sharp dropkick but having his plans for a springboard halted. Corbin went right to work from there, targeting Rollins' ribs and battering him along the way. On two occasions, Corbin even hung his foe on the top rope, further attacking Rollins' taped midsection.
The challenger's patented clothesline followed, with Corbin then wrestling Rollins to the mat and grounding proceedings as a result. Seth eventually retaliated though, landing on his feet and resetting things with a sudden kick. Right hands came next as Rollins rallied, landing a salvo of strikes and then Slingblade as well. Two big dives to the outside followed and then a superkick in center ring as well but Corbin kicked out at 2.
He then countered Rollins' third dive also, landing a timely elbow and slamming Seth to the mat for another near-fall. Nonetheless, Corbin continued to build momentum, next hitting Deep Six but still failing to close the show. Enraged at the referee, Corbin shouted in his face and then retrieved a steel chair. The referee convinced him against using it though, with Corbin again exploding in rage until the official fired back, arguing in the challenger's face and allowing Rollins to roll his foe up for the win.
Winner and STILL Champion: Seth Rollins
Post-match, Corbin jumped Rollins from behind, hitting End of Days as Lesnar's theme suddenly played. However, Heyman dropped the briefcase when entering the ring, distracting Brock and allowing Rollins to land a low blow. Suddenly Seth had the chair, battering his foe while Heyman looked on in horror. Finally, Rollins landed The Stomp directly onto Lesnar's briefcase. Rollins walks out with his title very much intact but Lesnar maintains his contract too.
WWE Intercontinental Championship
Andrade vs. "The Demon" Finn Balor (c)
The challenger is on the defensive early, standing back and looking to counter until he did exactly that, landing a high knee in the corner. Balor blocked the hammerlock DDT though, scoring some of his signature offense but then being swept on the apron. Andrade followed up too, landing a springboard dropkick for 2. A somewhat delayed Three Amigos came next but Balor kicked out again. The challenger then grounded his foe, grabbing a hold and taking control.
An inverted DDT off the middle rope followed as Andrade then slowed things once more. The champion soon fought to his feet though, firing back and eventually scoring a sudden dropkick to reset things. A strike exchange commenced from there, with Balor gaining the upper hand and sending his foe to the floor. He followed him there too, hitting his famed dive and then maintaining control in center ring, hitting a reverse Bloody Sunday for 2.
Andrade then retaliated, landing every strike in his arsenal but still failing to close the show. His delayed moonsault was blocked also, with Balor getting his knees up and then landing a double stomp on the apron too. He did the same in center ring, landing on Andrade's spine for 2 only for the challenger to respond, hitting Hammerlock DDT for yet another near-fall. Finally, Balor closed the show moments later, landing a powerbomb and then catching Andrade on the top rope, hitting a Super Bloody Sunday of sorts.
Coup De Grace followed and after quite the battle, Balor was still champion.
Winner and STILL Champion: Finn Balor
