Renee Young welcomes us to the show as Sam Roberts and David Otunga join her on the panel. They discuss the pain these starts are going through tonight. Charly Caruso is in the social media lounge as The Hardy Boyz will join her there later.
We see a video package on Miz vs. Ambrose. Otunga and Roberts discuss the the rivals before Sam asks Renee for her thoughts. She obviously picks Ambrose to retain without a doubt.
A video on Bliss vs. Bayley airs next. Nia Jax joins the panel. She says she has complete faith in Bliss tonight. For Bayley to win though, it would take a miracle as she lacks extreme. How much extreme can we see from a hugger who dresses like a 5 year old? Nia tells Sam to bring it down a notch. Nia says whoever is holding the title is just keeping it warm for her. Nia says she hits a lot harder than a Kendo Stick. Jax prefers she faces Alexa. Otunga says Alexa is tougher as well, but Sam seems to pick Bayley.
We see the final hype for Aries vs. Neville and then the mixed tag team match.
Matt and Jeff Hardy join Charly Caruso in the social media lounge. Matt says they are ready for the Steel Cage match as the time was right for them to come back to WWE. Jeff says they wanted to end it where they began. As for the stipulation, they wanted to end this feud in an extreme way. Matt says they will leave the fans breathless afterwards.
Michael Cole, Booker T, and Corey Graves take their seats at commentary for our Kickoff match.
1) Kalisto def. Apollo Crews (w/Titus O'Neil) via Selida Del Sol in 9:35.
Kurt Angle joins the panel to provide the final hype for the main event. Otunga picks Wyatt, Angle picks Joe, Sam picks Rollins.
