Becky tosses Carmella into the timekeeper's area and then dives onto her. Tamina dismantles the commentary table and looks to attack Charlotte, but Charlotte fights back and posts her. Charlotte then works over Natalya, heads up top and moonsaults onto Tamina & Natalya.
Both men spent came up through NXT and would go on to become NXT Champion.
Corbin and Kevin are in control until Sami manages to get to his corner and tag in Shinsuke, then Kevin gets sent into Corbin who drops him.
Since this is WWE, of course the tag team match is going to happen. Before too long, Sami Zayn runs down for the rescue, resulting in Sami Zayn scheduling the opening match of the night because evidently Shane-O-Mac out sneaker shopping.
The match was teased earlier in the program, as the hungry Dolph Ziggler interrupted AJ Styles backstage interview segment with Renee Young.

They then use water guns on the colons and toss them to the floor, which didn't work out well as the one was supposed to catch the other, but instead splatted to the mats on the floor.

Styles blocked the Fameasser and Ziggler hit him with a headbutt. Ziggler missed a superkick and Styles went for a springboard move but Ziggler knocked him down then hit a superkick for the win.
Ziggler claws at Styles' eyes to escape the Calf Crusher.
