Bryan's team gets taken out while Zayn squares off with him. However, just before Zayn can take advantage of a drained Bryan, Sheamus's music hits. Sheamus gets to the apron and tags in. It's a surprise tenth man! Sheamus runs in and runs wild, battering Zayn, Miz,  and Morrison, the last of whom getting the Beats of the Bodhran. 

Zayn is locked in the cloverleaf, but is saved by Morrison. We get a finisher-spamming few moments here, winding up with Zayn and Sheamus. Zayn runs in for a Helluva Kick only to be blasted with the Brogue Kick.
