Steel Cage match: Omos vs. Bobby Lashley

Alexander was tossed off the cage by Lashley but then Lashley decided to jump off the cage onto Omos, who caught Lashley. Omos tossed Lashley into one side of the cage, which broke. Because the cage wall broke and Lashley’s feet hit the outside floor, he’s the winner.

The WWE United States Champion Theory is on his way to the ring for his match. Mustafa Ali is out as his opponent, but Theory gets on the mic.

Winner: Alexa Bliss

After the match, Deville slaps the referee and begins to walk back up the ramp.

Cody Rhodes’ music hits and “The American Nightmare” makes his way to the ring. Rhodes said he has heard Rollins isn’t hear tonight. He tried moving on last week, but Rollins attacked him and said he won’t take anything from him again. Rhodes asks what it is that he took from Rollins exactly.

Rhodes said Rollins won his way to the top. Not like himself, who didn’t win, but painted his face (as Stardust) but was dead inside. But he endured. Rhodes said his biggest lesson was that, he’s never going to be “The American Dream,” so he’ll embrace the nightmare. Rhodes says Rollins’ embarrassment from losing two matches outweighs his quest for vindication.

Rhodes says that if Rollins insists on denying him his second chance, he’s going to have to kill him, and he’s going to give him the chance. Rhodes then challenges Rollins to a Hell In A Cell match. Rollins’ laugh breaks out over the speakers, and he’s on the jumbotron. Rollins says Rhodes must be stupider than he looks and calls it the biggest mistake of his life. Rollins says he already knows his answer. He accepts.

Rhodes says he’ll see Rollins in hell and the segment ends.
