What happened after Smackdown went off air?
Steel cage matches are usually reserved for main events, but WWE broke that trend after Smackdown went off air.
Ambrose and Owens were involved in a hard fought main event for the Intercontinental strap on Smackdown’ main event – that ended in a double count-out after both superstars brawled all throughout the arena.
After the cameras stopped rolling, though, the Wyatts came out and dragged a recovering Ambrose back into the ring to administer him an old school beatdown.
As the Wyatt's continued their attack on Ambrose, the steel cage that had been stationary on the ceiling since the start of the show, dropped down. As expected, Dolph Ziggler first ran out to save the Intercontinental Champion.
He was followed by Ryback and Big Show – that made it a four-on-four encounter.
The match ended in predictable fashion as the babyface team of Ambrose, Ziggler, Ryback and Show defeated the Buzzards. The faces ended the match, by each of them executing their respective finishing moves on the heels.

A noteworthy moment at the end of the match was when Big Show climbed up the steel cage to celebrate the win – with Ziggler pointing out the effort Show was putting in from the other side – which can be seen in the video above.
