Finn Bálor vs. The Brian Kendrick
Kevin Owens is on the mic for this one and the two grapplers get into it right from the bell. Balor puts Kendrick on the mat and works him in the arm bar. Kendrick gets Balor into a headlock but Balor escapes. Kendrick starts to get moving but tweaks his ankle for a moment as he flips himself into the ring. It might’ve been a ruse, though, as he quickly turns the tables on Balor and takes him down. Balor isn’t having it, though, and fights back, chucking Kendrick outside.
At the announce table, Kevin Owens and Alex Riley take some verbal shots at one another before Owens storms off, saying he doesn’t want to “do something stupid.”
After a break, Balor keeps the heat on Kendrick although Kendrick makes a bold statement when he lands a tornado DDT off the top rope. Balor reels from that as Kendrick goes up top again and hits a nice dropkick. A spike suplex doesn’t put Balor down for the count, as he kicks out at two. As they get up, Kendrick goes for a finisher and Balor takes him down with a huge clothesline. The “sling blade” follows and then the coup de grace puts Kendrick away for good.
Winner: Finn Bálor
After the bell, Owens comes out and acknowledges the win. Then he strolls over to the announce table and rips A-Ry out of his seat and tosses him over the desk.
