John Cena brings up being knocked out last week by The Bloodline. He has the signed contract in his hand. He notes that he doesn't have a partner.

The crowd is already chanting for LA Knight. John says he has a choice. He could rip up the contract, or he could stand and fight. "Sacramento, what choice do you think the man who wears the words 'never give up' over his heart is going to make?" 

He said he'll honor the contract and fight alone if he doesn't find a partner.

Austin Theory vs. Cameron Grimes

Austin Theory tried talking smack to Dragon Lee in the crowd, allowing Cameron Grimes to get the advantage early on. Grimes has been underutilized on SmackDown, so hopefully, he will have something soon.

Despite Cameron coming out hot, Austin turned things around and began to club away at Grimes. Grimes fights back with fists and a big Irish whip. Grimes with a big kick to Theory and a cross-body from the top!
