8:42 PM EDT: The entire crowd is chanting "We the People," completely behind Jack Swagger in the Flag Match against Rusev. If you would have told me after Wrestlemania 30 that Swagger would be over huge and Cesaro would still be dwindling on the Pre-Show, I would have said you were crazy.

9:51 PM EDT:Triple H comes out to get involved, so does Nikki Bella. Hunter neutralized the referee when Brie had Stephanie in the Yes Lock.

Nikki turns on Brie, allowing Stephanie to Pedigree Brie and get the win.
