-We open with The Wyatt Family coming out to the ring and Bray takes a seat at ringside for the match.
Randy Orton vs Luke Harper
They lock up for a clean break then exchange right hands before Randy sends Luke to the outside with a back elbow. Randy hits his draping DDT once he's back in the ring then teases the RKO, but Luke ducks out of the ring. Randy backdrops Luke on the barricade then slams his face into the announce table before dropping him back first onto it next. Luke takes out Randy then Bray rolls both of them back into the ring as we go to commercial.
Randy catches Luke on th top rope and hits a superplex for a quick 2 count as Bray looks on at ringside. Luke gets a close 2 count off of a roll up then hits a superkick for another close 2 count as Bray appears amused. Randy rolls him up then Luke goes for his finisher, but Randy hits an RKO out of no where for the pin and the win.
Winner: Randy Orton via pinfall
-After the match Bray shakes Randy's hand then offers to help up Luke who takes his hand then hits him with Sister Abigail.
-Mickie James comes out and explains why she aligned with Alexa Bliss, saying that the Women's Revolution is the problem and that they are acting like everything she sacrificed and achieved when she was with the company before. Mickie says that Alexa has been fighting the self-righteousness of the Women's Revolution. Becky comes out and attacks Mickie before Alexa shows up and they double team Becky.
-We then have James Ellsworth and Carmella shopping for clothes. He tries on various outfits for comedic relief and Carmella settles on a gold track suit, a ball cap and a chain.
