Out comes Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman. Heyman says Lesnar is very pissed off tonight, and he shows us why through footage of the match from yesterday. The entire match between Lesnar and Velasquez is replayed. We then get the entire footage of Rey’s post-match beatdown.
Heyman says McMahon told him that SmackDown superstars and RAW superstars are obligated to their respective brands by FOX and USA, and since Rey is a RAW superstar, he shouldn’t have been allowed to do what he did to Brock. Heyman says if Mysterio can’t come to SmackDown, then Brock Lesnar will come to RAW looking for Mysterio. If anyone has an issue with that, it won’t matter because Lesnar looking for revenge cannot be stopped.
Any threat of litigation, or any force on this planet cannot stop him. Heyman also then announces that Brock Lesnar quits FOX and will show up on RAW hunting for Mysterio. He then says something in Spanish, probably a threat.
Lesnar is seen walking backstage, and Triple H and Shawn Michaels look on backstage.
Bayley (C) vs. Nikki Cross – SmackDown Women’s Championship

After the match, NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler comes out and lays waste to Banks, Bayley and Cross with a series of knee strikes and enziguris.
Cathy Kelly interviews Sami Zayn backstage and he’s asked about all of the events that has happened tonight. Sami suggests that maybe NXT is here and that they might be lurking on Smackdown. They said they may have stuck their nose where it doesn’t belong. If any NXT superstar approaches him, it may not end so well. He is then approached by Keith Lee and Matt Riddle.
Sami then backtracks and states he’s been cool with NXT from day 1. He attempts to show an NXT shirt, but it’s a plain, black shirt. He claims that he left it in the car while eating a salad with an oil-based dressing. He says he’s going back to his car to find it but Lee and Riddle tail him. Lee insists there aren’t many shirts his size. Zayn then high-tails it out of there and goes out to the ring where Riddle cuts him off.
Riddle hits the high knee and hits his finisher. Then, Lee hits a moonsault.
We get a recap of Fury vs. Strowman.
The Miz comes out for MizTV and we get a recap of Wyatt destroying Rollins and winning the Universal Championship. Miz addresses the NXT invasion, and right on cue, out comes Tomasso Ciampa.
Ciampa comes out and questions if Miz is really as “must-see” as he claims. Ciampa disputes that and says he’s the best sports entertainer of all time. He says The Miz acts like the world revolves around him and he’s here to give him a reality check and let him know where he sits on the food chain.
Ciampa says that The Miz is what’s wrong with RAW and SmackDown. He’s breaking his neck on NXT while The Miz plays talk-show host. Miz plays the part, Ciampa is the part. Miz says that Ciampa is unoriginal and that he’s heard the same thing for 15 years. He states that if he’s been an actor for 15 years then he deserves a damn Oscar. He dares Ciampa to make a statement, and Ciampa says those are fighting words. Looks like we got a match.

The Miz attempts a top rope axe handle, but Ciampa cuts him off with a huge knee in mid-air. After that, he hits the Fairytale Ending for the victory.
Winner: Tomasso Ciampa
