Alicia Fox attempted to come in for the save, but Nia Jax ran in and took care of that. Sasha Banks music hit and she came running down with a crutch and chased the three heels out of the ring. Charolette, Dana Brooke, and Nia Jax were heading for the back when Bayley grabbed the mic and Said “No way are you going to come in and ruin my title chance. Get back down here and let’s have a six-woman tag match”

Jojo announced that it was main event time and introduced Kevin Owens. He came down and took the microphone away from Jojo and said I have bad news and good news for you. The bad news is you live in Bloomington, Colorado. Jojo leaned in and whispered something to Kevin and then he said I don’t care if it is Bloomington or Broomfield because the good news for me is that when I leave here I will still be Universal Champion, but Mick Foley said that I had to have a street fight but I don’t know who my opponent is. Jojo took the microphone away from Kevin and announced his opponent was The Big Show.
8. Big Show defeated Kevin Owens in a non-title street fight. After the Bell rang, Kevin dove out of the ring grabbed Mike Rowe and tried to get him to get in the ring with him. Mike was like no way am I getting involved in this and went back to his seat. During the Match, two tables were destroyed, one by Owens and another by Big Show. Show chokedslammed Owens then picked him up and choked slammed him through a third table. Big Show got the pin on Kevin Owens to end a 20-minute match.
Very good show. All the matches were entertaining except the Strowman vs. Zayn match.
