We then have Renee Young interview Kalisto in the ring where he talks about winning the WWE Cruiserweight Championship last night among other things before they're interrupted by Enzo Amore. Enzo then proceeds to belittle the luchador before getting in the ring and attacking him. Mustafa Ali then comes out and saves Kalisto before Enzo and Ariya head up the ramp to leave as we go to commercial.
Rich Swann vs TJP Two Out of Three Falls Match
Rich Swann comes out to the ring and calls out TJP before he makes his way out and down to the ring before they have a match. Rich hits a 450 splash to the outside before TJP can even get in the ring, then TJP attacks him and sends Swann into the barricade before tossing him back into the ring. TJP stomps Swann in the corner before sending him into the ring post repeatedly and rolling him back into the ring. TJP goes for a kneebar, but Swann counters and rolls TJP up for the first fall. TJP suplexes Swann before the two do several flips until they exchange dropkicks.
TJP hits a springboard forearm for a quick two count before TJP locks in a Texas clover leaf out of nowhere. Swann quickly manages to get to the ropes for the break before TJP whips him across the ring and into the opposite corner. They counter each other's finishers before Swann comes back with a flurry of offense, then Swann hits a frankensteiner before missing a jumping splash for a near fall. They clothesline each other before getting back to their feet and Swann catches TJP in midair with a roundhouse kick for a near fall before TJP catches him on the top turnbuckle and puts him in a kneebar. Swann manages to get to the bottom rope before tapping, then hits a sit-out neckbreaker before finishing up with a phoenix splash for the pin and the win.
Winner: Rich Swann via pinfall
-Akira Tozawa comes out for his match only to be attacked from behind and laid out by Drew Gulak.
