- Backstage, Naomi is confident that Daniel Bryan will make the right decision on the Women's Money In The Bank controversy. Lana interrupts and says she would've won the WWE Smackdown Live Women's Championship if it wasn't for Carmella and James Ellsworth distracting them. Lana challenges Naomi to another title match. Naomi accepts it for next week and threatens to slap Lana back to Russia.
Winner: Shinsuke Nakamura, by pinfall.
- Backstage, Becky Lynch interrupts Daniel Bryan and Sami Zayn. Zayn says Becky got robbed and he was rooting for her. Becky says it's frustrating because she had her hand on the briefcase until James Ellsworth got involved. Becky asks Bryan what he's going to do about it, but Bryan says it's complicated. Becky asks how is making the right decision complicated and then walks off.
- Kevin Owens Promo: Owens says there was an injustice that happened at Money In The Bank that's why he doesn't have the briefcase. Owens says he's still the Face of America and the WWE United States Champion so he's throwing out an Open Challenge to anyone from Dayton, Ohio. AJ Styles suddenly interrupts and says he's answering the challenge. Owens refuses because Styles is from Georgia. American Alpha interrupt next and Owens says they aren't from Dayton either. Chad Gable says he just moved here this morning so he technically is from Dayton. Owens wants proof, so Styles gives out Gable's address and tells the time keeper to ring the bell.
Winner: Kevin Owens, by pinfall, to retain the WWE United States Championship.
