5) The Miz & Damien Mizdow def The Usos to retain the tag titles. Crowd was hot for Mizdow.
6) Randy Orton def Kane with the crowd very much behind him and excited.
7) Emma & Alicia Fox def The Bella Twins. Though The Bellas played heel, they were fan favorites. Paige was guest referee and was biased, counting slow for the Bellas and favoriting Emma & Fox in a lighthearted way.
8) Big Show def Erick Rowan
9) John Cena def Seth Rollins in a street fight. The bout saw interference by J & J Security, Big Show with Ziggler and Orton coming in to help Cena. Cena wins after putting Rollins through a table.
