Prior to the match, The Miz made his way out to the ring in a wheelchair, and he said that the tag team division has become dry. But Morrison saved the day by would moistening it up with his drip stick. With the match officially underway, the teams wasted little time in attacking their particular rivals. Randy Orton and Riddle focusing on both Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston, and T-BAR and MACE attempting to take out anyone who made the mistake of getting too close to them.

As the match began to wind down, the battle came down to R-K-Bro, New Day, and the Viking Raiders. After Kingston hit Erik with a double stomp, Riddle distracted the former WWE Champion, allowing Orton to eliminate him and get the last laugh. But the Viking Raiders stunned Orton and eliminated “The Viper” to win the battle royal. As a result, they earned a shot at the WWE RAW Tag Team Championship.

After the match, the duo began celebrating backstage, and they planned their celebratory feast. But the champions, AJ Styles and Omos talked some smack about their future match. Styles made fun of Erik for smelling bad to add more heat to this brewing rivalry.
