Match 2.5: Big E Langston and the Usos vs. Shield
Back from commercial to see Roman in the ring beating an undisclosed Uso. Ambrose tags in and continues beating said Uso. He tags in Rollins. Uso tries to come back and Rollins lands a nice dropkick. Reigns in again. And Ambrose again, keeping the Uso down with a headlock. Uso manages to get a nice kick right into Ambrose’s face. He stumbles back to his corner and tags in Reigns. Uso gets Reigns down and Jey Uso gets into the ring. Rollins is in the ring and everyone else has gone flying out. Uso lands a terrific spinebuster and tries for a cover but it’s broken by a Shield member. Langston takes him out.
Uso and Rollins still in the ring, with Rollins to a slight advantage at least until Uso throws Rollins from the top rope onto his face. He tries to follow it up with a leap but Rollins gets his knees up.
Rollins and Reigns try to double team the Uso, but the other Uso joins in. They try to retaliate on the two Shield members, but Reigns lands a crazy spear on the both of them, and he makes the win for Shield.
It’s time for HBK’s explanation for that superkick.
He asks Daniel Bryan to come out so he can explain to his face. Bryan obliges and walks down to the ring.
HBK says he didn’t “intend” for that to happen. There’s a “you sold out” chant from the crowd.
We get a nice long speech about how Triple H and HBK are best friends. Besties. Apparently he superkicked Bryan because he was attacking Triple H. He doesn’t expect Bryan to understand or appreciate it, but he wants Bryan to accept his apology.
Last night HBK taught Bryan the “final” lesson. The most important lesson. You don’t trust anybody. HBK demands respect from Bryan. Bryan’s just like “Nope.” Just a very cold head shake.
Woah now. HBK calls him a “self-righteous little puke.” That’s not very nice. He’s giving Bryan the chance to shake his hand on worldwide television because he is Shawn freaking Michaels. Bryan just snaps and attacks him, pulling him into the Yes lock. HBK taps like crazy even though there’s no actual ref, at least until three of them run out from backstage and pull Bryan away. He leaves the ring and the refs check on HBK.
Oh, Kane is coming back tonight too.
Backstage interview with Daniel Bryan. The blond interviewer starts a question and then backs off in fear. Out of nowhere are the Wyatts, beating up poor Daniel Bryan. They throw him into a big ladder, then into a chain-link gate. He’s left a twitching heap on the concrete floor.
The announcers are all like “whaaaa….?”
Match 3: Los Matadores vs. 3mB
Heath Slater has a big net… are they going to use that on their little bull?
Mahal starts out with one of the Matadores. Solid back and forth. Slater gets in and gets the Matador down. All of 3MB combine for a triple team body slam. They’re pretty well in control, tagging in and out indiscriminately and keeping the Matador off his feet. Slater misses a knee drop and the Matador tags in his partner, who’s fresh in and very fast and keeping 3MB on their toes. DrewMac lands a rough dropkick and Heath gets the bullnet and stalks Taurito. He misses and crawls under the ring.
Taurito shoots off a fire extinguisher right into Slater’s face. He sneaks up behind and pushes him over. While DrewMac was distracted, both Matadores come up from behind and drop him on his face, for the win. They take the bullnet into the ring, and throw Heath Slater in, and catch him with it. Taurito does a nice high flying move onto Slater, and the three celebrate in the ring.
Don’t forget, if you have the WWE app you can choose the stipulation for the Punk/Ryback match!
