- Shinsuke Nakamura and Randy Orton defeat Rusev and Jinder Mahal
...
After the match, Orton laid Nakamura out with an RKO and sent out a strong statement before their #1 contenders match for the WWE title on next week's SmackDown. Is the heel Viper back? We sincerely hope so! 
...
...
Orton gets into the ring and goes for the RKO, but Rusev shoved him off. However, Nakamura drops the Bulgarian Brute with a knee strike from the second rope. Kinshasa! 1-2-3! Good night Machka! 
...
Orton was going for the RKO but Rusev evaded it; Nakamura tagged in and hits the Kinshasa and the three count.

Shinsuke Nakamura and Randy Orton win the match. 

The two smile at each other, and the two exchange words... but Orton lands a huge RKO out of nowhere! The two will face off against each other in a No. 1 Contender's match next week on SmackDown.
...
Orton creates separation and makes the hot tag to Nakamura. The pop is deafening! The Rockstar comes in hot and lays Ruse out with a kick. He gets a near fall and follows it up with an exploder suplex. Rusev reverse, but Nakamura smartly transitions into an attempted cross arm breaker.
...
Orton lands a huge slam on Mahal and as the Singh Brothers distract the referee, Rusev lands a huge one. Rusev tags in and covers Orton, but it's just the two count. The Bulgarian Brute lands huge kicks and then gets him into a submission hold, Orton now on his knees.
...
Nakamura lands a jawbreaker and tags Orton, and he goes at Jinder Mahal with punches, uppercuts, stomp to the leg. Mahal goes for the clothesline, Orton ducks and goes for the RKO, but Mahal evades and goes out of the ring. Orton throws Mahal on his back into the barricade. 
...
Mahal and Nakamura are in action and Nakamura lands a huge leg on Mahal; Nakamura is struggling to get to Orton, but the WWE champ pulls The Artist back to the middle of the ring. Mahal lands a huge knee to the back of Nakamura and gets him in a headlock...
...
Nakamura and Orton take on Mahal and Rusev even before the bell is rung and both of them are thrown out of the ring, Nakamura and Orton stand tall in the ring, as we head into the commercial break...

In season 2 of the Fashion Files featuring Breezango -- Tyler Breeze and Fandango -- the two are in the police station trying to solve another climb. The two are back and check out the new 'tech' and long-distance, high-frequency listening device, and other gadgets. 
...
Lana is in the ring and introduces 'the most dominant and feared women wrestler in the WWE' Tamina. Tamina is to face off against a jobber, who takes the initiative, but Tamina is aggressive and retaliates with a few kicks and a huge kick to the jaw. That's it! Lights out. She gets the three count.

Tamina gets the victory, with Lana by her side

Backstage, James Ellsworth introduces Carmella and says that he's not going to tell James anything and blames him for last week. 

Natalya interrupts and tells her if she cashes-in on her, she'll make her a 'Baron Corbin' alluding to Corbin's unsuccessful Money in the Bank attempt. Naomi interrupts and says that she'll use her rematch clause and face her in two weeks time on SmackDown.
...
Jimmy then enters the ring and superkicks E. Jey was going for the pop-up Samoan Drop, and Kofi counters with a submission. Jimmy is tagged in and gets a roll-up cover and the three count. That looked controversial as Jimmy held his tights.
...
Jimmy lands a few huge right hands on Big E as they are in control; Big E lands a huge blow and both teams get the tag. Kofi lands a few clothes lines and a dropkick, and a New Day boom drop. He gets the crowd amped up, but Jey kicks him. 
...
The winner of the match will get the chance to choose their stipulation for the rematch between them. 
...
The New Day enter with boxes of Booty-Os and it looks like Big E and Kofi Kingston are going to represent The New Day as Xavier Woods looks injured and has a sign over him which says 'It's sore'.
...
In a backstage segment, Dolph Ziggler is asked about his new persona, but says that it'll not happen tonight. Ziggler says that he's not considered seriously after these many years in the WWE and not noticed. 

He says that all the years of 'dedication and sacrifice' have meant nothing, and that he's going to debut his new avatar next week.
...
Shane McMahon says that that match between English and Zayn does not count. He also said that he's not happy with Owens and leaves the arena to meet Owens.
