Van Dam starts things off by taking the offensive lead. He hits all of his typical moves as the crowd gets fired up. The fans chant “Ce-Sar-O” to try and rally behind him. The fans chant “Walrus” at Heyman on the outside. Cesaro starts making a comeback as we head to a mid-match commercial.
When we return from commercial, Cesaro has Van Dam in a headlock as the fans chant “RVD” to try and rally behind Van Dam. RVD gets out and starts fighting back with an assortment of kicks. Cesaro ends up cutting RVD’s comeback short and is back in control of the offense.

Van Dam ends up getting his leg tied up in the ropes and is now hanging upside down. Cesaro kicks the crap out of Van Dam, then goes outside the ring and punches away at him. He refuses to stop despite demands to do so from the referee, so the ref calls for the bell. Cesaro is disqualified.

Wyatt talks about how Abigail always told him he was destined to be a leader. He says all his life he was told he was a nobody, but by beating John Cena last night, he became a somebody. He talks about “Little Johnny” scaring Cena at Extreme Rules and then highlights of that are shown.
Wyatt stands up out of his chair and talks about how he’s a monster and that he can be oh so cruel. He says people won’t remember him as a monster.

Rhodes connects with a shoulder block from the apron. He tries a sunset flip, but Ryback catches him and slams Rhodes’ head on the mat. Ryback hits a few quick suplexes. Ryback lifts Rhodes up and hits a long stalling suplex. Because he held him up so long in that position, the fans thought of the Jackhammer and started chanting “Goldberg” at him.
The finish saw Rhodes go to the top rope while Goldust runs over and stops Axel from interfering, however he’s bumped into the ring post from the floor and it causes Rhodes to lose his balance. Ryback catches Rhodes coming off the top and hits him with the Shellshock for the win.
