Steel Cage Women's Championship match: Alexa Bliss (c) vs. Becky Lynch

Becky Lynch is the first to make her entrance, she is followed by Alexa Bliss as both women enter the cage. We cut to commercials.

The two women start the match off with both trying to smash each other's face into the steel side of the cage. Becky Lynch runs into a boot by Alexa Bliss but manages to put her into the corner and bounces her head off the turnbuckle.

Becky then throws Alexa into the corner yet again but runs into a boot by Alexa. Alexa then throws Becky down and attempts to catapult her onto the steel side of the cage but Becky reverses it into a cage escape attempt instead.

Alexa throws Becky down by pulling her leg as Becky's face smashes on to the top turnbuckle. Becky connects with a series of armdrags but Alexa gets the upper hand and proceeds to beat her down. Becky Lynch reverses the momentum and attempts a roll-up pin but Alexa kicks out.

Alexa starts climbing the cage but Becky follows her as the two get into a brawl on the top of the ropes and smash each other's heads on the cage. Becky finally brings Alexa down by putting her head through the top turnbuckle, much like Alexa had done to her earlier. We cut to commercials.

Back from commercials, Alexa Bliss can be seen beating Becky Lynch down as she goes for a pinfall attempt that Becky kicks out of. Alexa then throws Becky on to the Steel side of the cage and bounces her off the cage. Bliss tries to ram her head to drive Becky further into the cage but Becky moves out and sends Bliss into the steel instead.

Becky tries to go for the door but Alexa pushes her away. Becky reverses the momentum and ends up connecting with a high flying move off the top rope on Alexa Bliss instead. Becky then tries to escape the cage and nearly makes it out but Alexa pulls her back in as the two women battle it out on top of the ropes. Becky eventually DDT's Alexa off the middle rope.

Both the women try to escape the cage through the open door but are stopped by their opponents. Becky finally gets the upper hand and almost makes it out through the door but La Luchadora appears and stops her from doing so.

Becky proceeds to lock the dis-arm-her on Alexa Bliss but La Luchadora kicks her in the head, causing the submission hold to break. Alexa Bliss takes advantage of the situation and plants a DDT on Becky Lynch. She then pins Becky for the win.

Result: Alexa Bliss defeats Becky Lynch to retain her Smackdown Women's championship via Pinfall

After the match, La Luchadora raises Alexa Bliss' arm in jubilation. The two then proceed to beat down Becky Lynch some more. Becky eventually makes it back to her senses and starts beating the two down. She rips off La Luchadora's mask and it's revealed to be Mickie James.

The two get the finishing touches on a shocked Becky and beat her down as the show comes to an end with Alexa Bliss and Mickie James celebrating.

Segment: The King's Court with Jerry "The King" Lawler and Dolph Ziggler

Jerry Lawler is in the ring and asks the crowd if they were glad to see him back, the crowd respond affirmatively as Lawler introduces Dolph Ziggler as his guest. Ziggler makes his entrance.

Lawler welcomes Dolph to The King's Court but Dolph doesn't respond. Lawler asks Dolph where all his goodness has faded and compares it to the faded bleach in his hair. Dolph doesn't respond yet again as Lawler hypothesises that Dolph might be frustrated and that he might be hoping that his new attitude could win him some matches. 

Dolph teases saying something on the mic but doesn't say anything yet again. Lawler then says that he was going to show Dolph something and reminds him of his recent losses. 

A video package is shown showing Dolph Ziggler beating down Kalisto with a Steel Chair as Apollo Crews tried to help but also got beaten down by Ziggler. 

Lawler asks Ziggler what he thought about that but Ziggler fails to respond yet again. Ziggler starts exiting the ring but Lawler urges him to stay and talk. Ziggler says that he knew that Lawler was going to try and bring him down and make him look bad, he then proceeds to show Jerry Lawler some footage of his own. 

The footage of Ziggler beating down Jerry Lawler with elbows to the chest in September 2012. Ziggler says that he knows that Lawler had suffered a heart attack minutes after the beatdown and that he blamed Ziggler for it. Ziggler then says that if Lawler didn't stop asking him questions he would "finish" what he had started four years ago. 

Lawler says that he had one more question left and asks Ziggler how it felt to be a loser despite how many times he changed his attitude. Ziggler superkicks Lawler in the chest in retaliation and leaves him in pain as he exits the ring. JBL rushes to Lawler's aid and Lawler screams at Ziggler to come back as Ziggler leaves and the segment comes to an end.
