...
Corbin was absolutely distraught as SmackDown came to a close. The WWE Champion stood tall
...
What an absolute shocker. Corbin just became the 3rd man in WWE history to fail an MITB cash-in. This is absolutely crazy.
...
Cena hits the super-AA from the top turnbuckle, and as he's about to pin Jinder, Corbin slides the MITB briefcase in and breaks the pin, effectively DQing Jinder.

After the match, Corbin walks away and then realizes that he can cash in the MITB. He runs in, gives the referee his briefcase and then says he's cashing in. Match takes a long time to start, with Cena lingering ringside. He attacks Cena and then turns around, only to be pinned by Jinder.

Baron Corbin failed to Cash in his Money In The Bank contract.
...
Jinder attempts a Khallas, but outpowers Jinder. He hits an AA successfully and Jinder KICKS OUT! Jinder just kicked out of the AA!
...
A distraught Jinder is distracted and is met with an STF when he turns around. Luckily for the champion, he reaches for the ropes on time. Cena then attempts an AA, but Jinder sees it coming and escapes. He hits Cena with the running knee.
...
Cena's finally in control now as he hits Jinder with the Five-Knuckle Shuffle. The Singh Brothers then pull Jinder out of the ring. Jinder runs away and as he re-enters the ring, so does Cena behind him, except the Singh Brothers catch his leg and Jinder kicks Cena. The referee notices The Singh Brothers holding Cena's leg and sends them out!
...
Samir Singh hits a cheap shot on Cena from behind.  Jinder is in full control now, even after the commercial break.
...
The crowd is in full fledged "Let's go Cena! Cena Sucks" mode! Jinder extends his hands as the two try to out muscle each other. 
...
Looks like it's the end of the super-popular Fashion Peaks. This is truly saddening!!
...
The screen wrote "Breezango will return in 25 years", and the "25 years" was changed to "2 weeks", to which the crowd popped.
...
The Asenscion come to return their terrible pie. Fandango starts investigating the pie and finds gluten, band-aid and hair. When the Gluten part was mentioned, they got triggered as they live a Gluten free lives.
...
Fandango says that Aliens "mentally probed" him. Tyler Breeze is wearing a comedic blonde wig. Fandango also has a "space rock" which they put in his "back pocket".

...
Kofi turns things around with a back body drop and he then tags in Xavier Woods, who hit a flurry of offence. He's really able to shine in these situations.He's caught with a crazy right hand outside the ropes but then hits an enziguri. Kofi gets tagged in slyly and the two then try to finish things, but it's not enough. Kofi tries to finish Jimmy Uso, but the former champions are too quick for their liking. The Usos then attack Kofi's leg and hit him with a double superkick for the win.

The Usos defeated The New Day
...
Back after the break, Usos are the ones in control. JBL now uses another Game Of Thrones reference.
...
Kofi starts strong and tags in Xavier Woods. New Day is rolling in a super fast paced mode as Xavier tags in Kofi again. They're just pounding on and jumping on Jey.
...
New Day throwing those Game Of Thrones references in their promo. Xavier Woods saying that the Usos are going to have to bend that knee!
...
It's time for The New Day vs The Usos! The champs make their entrance!
...
Shane says it wouldn't be appropriate for him to shake hands with KO, and suggests he shakes hands with AJ instead. the former champion extends his hands but AJ doesn't budge. KO shoves the champion and that starts a brawl between them, which Shane tries to stop. 

AJ then tries to strike KO with his fist but Owens ducks and AJ's fist gets caught by Shane. There's another moment of great tension between the two former rivals. Owens attempts a superkick, but AJ ducks and the kick lands on Shane instead. A shocked KO fled from the ring while the crowd chants "You Suck"
...
KO tells AJ that he doesn't believe that he hit Shane unintentionally. He also praises Shane for his rules, stating it to be fair rules. KO then tells Shane that if he does hit him on Sunday it will be completely unintentional. He offers Shane a handshake for a fair fight.
