The New Day kicked off SmackDown Live and started explaining how Kofi Kingston would beat Dolph Ziggler at Sunday during Stomping Grounds inside a steel cage. Ziggler came out to tell us that on Sunday, it will be him who walks away the winner and Kofi would go on an apology tour for disappointing his fans and losing the WWE Championship.
Dolph went on one more of his rants about how it should've been him before he prepared for his match with Xavier Woods which was up next.
Xavier Woods vs. Dolph Ziggler
Dolph went for Woods' legs right away but failed to get a submission. The two rolled around in the ring for a moment and then Woods hit a big dropkick. Dolph hit a neckbreaker and Woods hit a lariat before Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn attacked Big E and Kofi outside the ring.
