More recapping of Cena and Lesnar from Summerslam and Raw.
Emma vs. Paige: recap of the ongoing drama between AJ and Paige. 2-minute squash with Paige submitting Emma. AJ comes out post-match and presents chocolates to Paige. AJ offers Paige a piece, Paige eats it, then spits it back in the box.
Rusev vs Jack Swagger in a submission match: Lana promo (easily has most heat of night) cut off by Swagger who is still selling his ribs. Match starts with Swagger dominating early, but his ribs are keeping him from staying strong. Rusev reversed Swagger ribs first in the barricade, and puts the heat on Swagger. Swagger briefly makes a comeback on Rusev’s ankle. Swagger goes for Swagger Bomb, Rusev and Swagger exchange ankle locks. Rusev throws a savate kick and clamps on the Accolade. Swagger powers up as Bo Dallas clips Swagger’s knee. Accolade on again, and Swagger taps.
Post match, Bo cuts his promo on Swagger. Swagger attempts to retaliate, but gets kicked for his efforts.
Backstage, Kane informs Miz (on the phone with his agent) that he will be facing Sheamus later.
Jimmy Uso w/Jey vs. Goldust w/Stardust: Goldust apologizes for their actions on Monday. Very short match. Jimmy rolls up Cody for the pin. The Dust Brothers attack the Usos after.
Damien Mizdow vs. Sheamus: Miz on commentary, but not in the match. Damien has control early, until Sheamus gets victory with the White Noise. After match, Miz tries to escape and Ziggler throws Miz in the ring, only for Miz to hightail it.
