After the two stars clashed earlier in the night when McIntyre accidentally clotheslined Strowman, the two went at it in the ring in a singles match. After a few short minutes, the match was interrupted by WWE Champion Bobby Lashley and MVP, who came down to watch the match. They did much more than just watch, though, as MVP and Lashley both attempted to get involved toward the end of the match.
While Strowman and McIntyre battled it out in the ring, Lashley distracted the referee and allowed MVP to interfere by pulling McIntyre off Strowman’s shoulder. Strowman responded by turning and knocking MVP off of the apron, but McIntyre capitalized by dropping his opponent with a Future Shock DDT. Strowman persevered though, and while McIntyre set up for the Claymore, Mace and T-Bar showed up to distract McIntyre. As a result, Strowman dropped McIntyre with an emphatic Powerslam for the win.
