As she celebrates her victory, Angle walks down to the ring. He is soon followed by the Champ who eats a drop kick for her troubles. 

Banks is left holding the title in the ring.
...
Sasha hobbles into the ring but Jax picks her up, right into a bear hug. After a few minutes in the bear hug, Sasha is lifted high in the air only to be planted into the mat. Nia tries to plant Banks but the Boss works out of it, attempts an unsuccessful roll-up, evades a leg-drop and delivers a sliding knee. Banks attempts a standing Banks' statement but a giant Samoan drop nearly ends things. Banks fights with a few kicks.

Banks tries to fight back as she re-enters the ring but Nia just slams her to the mat with a huge right hand. She then picks Banks up and throws her down. A cover after a huge elbow isn't enough to put her away and a frustrated Jax just throws Banks out of the ring. 
...
Jax has Sasha in a head lock after planting her with a clothesline during the break. Sasha is then bundled out of the ring. Banks fights back with a kick and evades Jax in the corner to hit her with the double knees. Jax has had enough and just throws Banks on the ropes and clotheslines her to the mat.

Nia vs. Banks:

Banks tries to use her speed to overwhelm Jax and bundles her out of the ring. She then dives through the ropes but is caught in mid-air. The resilient Banks fights out of it and sends Jax crashing to the floor.
...
Jax then returns to the bear hug and James fights with a few rights. She eventually lands a drop kick and a front kick to the mid-section but Nia is still on her feet. James then takes to the top rope and takes her down but it's not enough to seal the deal. A spin kick gives James some momentum but she attempts a DDT but is spiked to the mat. A slam to the side of the face gives Nia the win.

Nia vs. Dana:

A quick Samoan drop gives Jax the win.

Nia vs. Emma:

Emma attempts to fight hard but eventually falls victim to the Samoan Drop.

Jax vs. James:

Jax stomps Nia in the corner and then bear hugs her as we return from the break. Mickie finally fights out of it and attempts the quick roll-up but Nia just doesn't budge.

Bayley tries to keep Nia down with stomps but Jax retaliates with a huge kick that sends the former champ to the corner. Bayley goes to the top rope and is tripped. Finally, a Samoan Drop seals the deal as Jax waits in the ring for her next opponent.

Jax beats Bayley and has to face James next.
...
She then thrusts her hip into Bayley's jaw and mocks the former champ. A few headbutts send Bayley across the ring but she eventually evades a splash in the corner. Bayley then connects with a knee on the apron and takes to the top rope. An elbow from the top nearly seals the deal but Jax kicks out.

Women's Gauntlet match
Bayley vs. Jax:

Bayley begins with a stomp and a forearm, however, Nia barely moves. She then just picks her up and flings her into the corner. 
...
...
Bliss tries to appeal to Nia's softer side backstage but is just shrugged off and told to bring her title to GBOF. The Gauntlet match is up next!!!
...
Heyman is asked what he thinks about what just happened and an enraged Paul says that Joe is not a real Samoan. He insists that a real Samoan takes the fight to their opponent but Joe loves sneaking up from behind. However, he maintains that the championship would still be Lesnar's after the Beast victimises Joe regardless of how dirty and intense the fight may turn out.
...
Michael tells us Roman Reigns has escaped from the ambulance and is searching for Strowman.
...
...
Tozawa, who is ringside, takes his jacket off and climbs into the ring. As the two face off, Titus walks in and asks the men why they'd fight for free when he's got them a match at Great Balls of Fire. So it's official, Neville will take on Tozawa with the Cruiserweight Championship on the line.
...
A cross body nearly gives him the three count but Neville soon regains control. He then pulls at the sacred mask and eventually uses the Rings of Saturn to seal the deal.

Neville wins
...
Lince finally stops Neville and fights out with a few rights, but Neville proves to be too strong and latches in a headlock. Dorado fights back with a few slaps to the chest and a drop kick which is soon followed by a kick and a suicide dive. 
...
Lince Dorado vs. Neville:

Neville begins with a strong kick and then whips Dorado into the corner. He then flings him into the other corner and then slams his face into the turnbuckles.
...

Heyman finally calls upon his client but as the Beast shuffles down the ramp he is ambushed by Joe who locks in the Coquina Clutch out of nowhere. Brock manages to fight back and slams Joe into the screen behind him, not once but twice, forcing the screen to nearly give way. However, not to be deterred, Joe tightens his hold and doesn't let go until Brock fades completely. The Revival pull Joe off the champ as Brock is left gasping for air. What a fantastic segment!!!
...
Heyman accuses Joe of taking a cheap shot only because he knew that people would come to his rescue and separate the two. He then says that Joe's kick to Lesnar's face was the second cheap shot. He calls Joe a dumbass for not being scared of the beast and tells him that the smart know when to fear. 
...
Heyman takes to the ring with a smile on his face and begins his iconic introduction of the Beast. He starts by saying that Brock intimidates everyone except Samoa Joe. 
...
After we see Mickie and Dana draw their numbers for the gauntlet match, a black car drives up to a smiling Heyman. Brock Lesnar walks out of the SUV as the whole crowd pops. The Beast is here!!!!
...
...
Just as he celebrates his victory, Wyatt confronts him on the titantron. He accuses Seth of blindly leading his fans and not giving into his true self. He then tells Rollins that he is going to save him with the flame of a true God at Great Balls of Fire on July 9th.

Guess it's official! We will see Rollins take on Wyatt at Great Balls of Fire!
...
Hawkins then latches on the Rollins' neck. Seth makes it back to a vertical base and tries to bounces off the ropes but Hawkins slides out the ring. However, he eats a kick on the apron for his trouble. A suicide dive, a slingblade and a blockbuster give Seth momentum. A dive off the third rope and a kick to the jaw is underlined with a knee to the face that gives him the win.

Rollins wins
...
Seth Rollins vs. Curt Hawkins:

Hawkins begins with a knee to the midsection and unleashes right hands. He then plants Rollins to the mat with a side slam and then with a Suplex.

...
Cass walks up to Graves as the announcer's desk discusses the women's match and tells him that he should snap his tattooed pencil neck but adds that Angle has specifically told him not to do so. Graves refuses to comment on what happened after Cass leaves and diverts our attention to Rollins.
...
...
As the two stroll down the ramp, celebrating their brotherhood, things look great until the big man clotheslines Enzo to the ground while still holding his hand. He then lifts Enzo and flings him across the ramp. Looks like this emotional reunion ends with yet another betrayal.
...
He then goes on to say that they are brothers and finally apologises. He asks Enzo for forgiveness for all that he's said and done in the last few weeks and puts his hand out. The two men shake hands and then embrace as they are nearly in tears. Cass then says that if we think something like this is going to break their brotherhood, then they have word for us, 'SAWFT'.
...
Cass finally takes the mic and tells Enzo that he never knows when to shut up. However, he admits that he's ashamed of his actions last week. He adds that they can't change each other.
