Curt Hawkins battled Apollo Crews one on one. In the main event Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Randy Orton battled Dean Ambrose, Kane and James Ellsworth in a Six Man Tag Team Match.

*** Smackdown Live ***

- AJ Styles Promo: Styles says Dean Ambrose cheated last week, thanks to James Ellsworth and now Styles owes Ambrose a title shot.

Styles says that he is a true leader and will lead Team Smackdown Live, as they whoop Team RAW. Baron Corbin interrupts and Styles says he was going to introduce him, but only if he delivers at Survivor Series. Corbin says he'll deliver, but not for Styles' team. The Wyatt Family and Randy Orton are out next, followed by Dean Ambrose and James Ellsworth. Styles is livid when he sees Ellsworth and demands that he gets escorted out. Ambrose says if he has a problem with Ellsworth than he has a problem with Glasgow, because they want to see Ellsworth. Baron Corbin walks out disgusted as Shane McMahon arrives.
