Thanks for joining us, folks. We'll see you in a few days for Monday Night RAW! And be sure to hold your loved ones close. Tell your friends you love them. You never know the last time you'll see them.

01:58 (GMT)26 AUG 2023

The lights go out, and the crowd holds up their phones. The fireflies are out tonight. A lantern is left in the ring as smoke fills the area, and a silhouette of Bray is seen in the ring. 

The crowd chants, "Thank you, Bray," as we end the night.

01:57 (GMT)26 AUG 2023

LA Knight finally hits the BFT on Finn, securing a big win heading into Payback next week!

LA Knight defeats Finn Balor via pinfall.

Balor plants Knight with the spin-out elbow drop neck breaker and moves for the Coup de Grace again. Knight blocks him, crutching the former Universal Champ on the top rope. 

01:54 (GMT)26 AUG 2023

Knight is caught by the shotgun dropkick and is in the drop zone! Coup de Grace! Knight avoids it and hits the Gravy Train powerslam!

After pulling Knight off the second rope, Balor dominates through the break. But Knight avoids an elbow in the corner, catching Balor on the rebound with a neckbreaker. The Slim Jim Superstar is slugging away right now!

01:48 (GMT)26 AUG 2023

LA Knight is taken out early by Finn Balor in the opening moments as we cut to break. WWE cuts to Bray Wyatt's return promo last year, where the fans chanted, "Thank you, Bray! Thank you, Bray!"

01:46 (GMT)26 AUG 2023

Finn Balor and LA Knight getting this match means a lot. Knight was the last man to wrestle Wyatt, and Finn Balor and Wyatt's careers crossed on several occasions. 

Graves and Cole mention that, despite how many times Balor and Wyatt fought, we never got The Demon vs. The Fiend.

01:45 (GMT)26 AUG 2023


The last members of the Wyatt Family

"A wise man once told me, 'The next time you see me... RUN!'" What a great tribute from LA Knight tonight. The main event is next, as the Mega Star battles Finn Balor.

01:39 (GMT)26 AUG 2023

Knight states that the highlight of The Miz's career was being the background to The Rock and John Cena. That's a deep wound that I don't think The Miz has, or will ever, get over.

01:37 (GMT)26 AUG 2023

"I won't come out here and act like we were best friends, but I'll echo that sentiment. Thank you Bray."

01:37 (GMT)26 AUG 2023

LA Knight says sometimes your greatest foes can turn into your greatest helpers. They went through hell in their feud this year, but he says what Bray Wyatt was doing was getting him ready for anything in this company. 

He says his heart breaks for Bray's family, but he can hear and feel the energy in the building. He can feel the spirit of Bray Wyatt in this building. 

01:35 (GMT)26 AUG 2023

Feel that, folks?! It's the unavoidable L! A! Knight!

01:16 (GMT)26 AUG 2023

The Profits are rolling here. After taking out Butch, Dawkins hits Ridge with the Anointment, and Tez follows with a rolling Frog Splash.

01:01 (GMT)26 AUG 2023

"We get to call ourselves the coolest thing. We get to call ourselves WWE Superstars. But there are very few who earn the right to call themselves cowboys, and both Terry Funk and Bray Wyatt were cowboys in the best of ways."

01:00 (GMT)26 AUG 2023
