Lana is introduced, and she makes her way out to the top of the entranceway. She says Americans, your country is pathetic. In Russia, they laugh at us. The entire world laughs at us, but no one laughs at Russia. The country was once strong, but has fallen to the greatest country in the world, Mother Russia. And it is led by the greatest leader in the world, President Putin. She tells the fans they will respect Putin, and bow down to him. Rusev is introduced (as now residing in Moscow). Rusev makes his way to the ring waving a Russian flag the entire way.
Big E is the next man out to the ring, and he gets a big pop as he waves an American flag on his way down.
Both men wave their flags with all of their might, as we get a quick recap of the events last Monday that led to this match, with Big E defending Zack Ryder and knocking Rusev from the ring.
Rusev vs. Big E
Big E ducks a clothesline, and both men collide in the middle of the ring. Both get a couple of shots in, but Rusev backs Big E into the corner. It’s short lived as Big E backs Rusev up in the same manner. Rusev hits a belly to back suplex, then kicks Big E square in the chest a couple of times for good measure. Rusev hits a couple of clubbing blows across Big E’s back. Rusev splashes Big E in the corner as the crowd chants ‘we want Ziggler’. Rusev charges Big E in the corner and Big E catches Rusev, planting him with a urunage.
Rusev goes out to the apron and Big E spears Rusev through the ropes, driving both men to the floor. Lana looks shocked.
Big E stands and pulls Rusev to his feet, bringing things back into the ring. Big E goes for the pin and gets a two count. Big E hits the ropes, and Rusev catches Big E with a huge kick right to the chin that knocks Big E to the mat. Rusev looks to Lana, and she tells him to crush. Rusev stomps on Big E’s back, then locks him into the camel clutch. Big E is forced to tap out.
Rusev holds the submission until Lana tells him to break it, and then stands to have his hand raised.
After a quick promo for Money in the Bank, Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella are shown talking in the back.
Back in the arena, Kofi Kingston makes his way out for a match that was announced literally in the last two minutes of the pre-show.
Bo Dallas makes his way out next, Tebowing at the top of the ramp before turning around with a giant smile on his face. There don’t seem to be too many Bo-Lievers in the house tonight.
Bo has a mic. He tells the fans that he is Bo Dallas, and even though Chicago’s hockey team, the Blackhawks, are going to lost their match tonight, that does not make all of the fans losers. Because all they have to do, is Bo-Lieve.
Kofi Kingston vs. Bo Dallas
The bell rings, but before things can get started, Kane’s music hits, and he makes his way to the ring. Bo and Kofi stand shoulder to shoulder. Kofi attacks as soon as Kane gets in the ring. Kane hits him with a big right hand, then tosses him over the top and to the outside. Bo is nowhere to be seen as Kane follows Kofi to the floor and hits him with a big boot. Kane tosses Kofi into the ring and follows.
Kane waits for Kofi to stand, then catches him with a big chokeslam. Kane picks Kofi up and shoulders him, hitting a tombstone for good measure. Kane stands over Kofi’s body, raises his hands, and calls forth his pyro before leaving the ring.
Bo, ever the opportunist, grabs the mic again. He tells Kofi not to worry, he’s going to be back on his feet in no time, and better than ever. All Kofi has to do, and all the fans have to do, is Bo-Lieve. Bo smiles and gives Kofi the thumbs up, patting him on the chest before holding his arms high.
