*** Smackdown Live ***
- Backstage, The Miz tells Daniel Bryan he has an issue with his WWE Intercontinental Championship match against Dolph Ziggler tonight. Bryan says he'll be happy to cancel it, but he'll also terminate Miz's contract, because when Miz signed his new contract he missed the part that says "no title defense no job". Bryan asks if this will be a problem. Miz says no and walks away.
Winners: The Usos, by pinfall, to become #1 contenders.
- Backstage, Heath Slater says he and Rhyno beat The Usos once, they'll do it again. The Usos interrupt and demand they just hand over the titles now or they'll take out Slater's knee. The Usos walk out as Rhyno steps up.
Winner: Baron Corbin, by pinfall.
- Backstage, Nikki Bella and Naomi take verbal shots at Nattie Neidhart and Carmella. They say Nattie lost her glow and is corrupt and Carmella is a knock off Nikki Bella wannabe.
- Backstage, Dolph Ziggler says that The Miz may be obnoxious, a cheater and a coward, but he is also the champion. Ziggler is desperate to prove he belongs and will shut up The Miz.
Winner: The Miz, by pinfall, to retain the WWE Intercontinental Championship.
Winner: Randy Orton, by pinfall.
Winners: Naomi and Nikki Bella, by DQ.
- Backstage, AJ Styles doesn't understand why he has to defend his WWE World Heavyweight Championship in a triple threat match when he's already beaten John Cena and Dean Ambrose. Styles is going to sit back and watch Cena and Ambrose destroy each other tonight.
Winner: Dean Ambrose, by pinfall.
