Cena then went for his AA but Bray caught him rebounding off the rope and hit the Sister Abigail. Cena shocked the crowd, got up before the ref counted to 10 and finally hit an AA on Bray. Bray got up by launching into this possessed taunt, which then led to the rest of the Wyatt Family and the Usos getting into a skirmish in the ring. After both men’s outside representatives laid each other out the ring, Bray began smashing a steel chair over Cena’s back. Cena powered back into the match by using the same chair to lay out Bray. Cena then uncovered a table from underneath the ring. Bray got the advantage on Cena though, as he suplexed Cena right through the table. Bray brought the steel steps into the ring and smashed it right off of Cena’s skull. Bray stood atop the steps and began serenading the crowd. However, Cena made his comeback by smashing those same steel steps into Bray. Bray got back up, but Cena blasted Bray with the steel steps after he threw them outside the ring right into him. Even after all that, Bray still managed to get on his own two feet. Then out of nowhere, Bray hit the Sister Abigail on Cena into the barricade. The crowd began showing their appreciation for this hard fought match by chanting “THIS IS AWESOME!” Once both men got back up, Cena threw Bray into the steel post. But Cena soon found himself hurt again when Bray backdropped him onto the steel steps. Bray then stepped atop the steel steps and landed a senton splash to Cena on the outside of the ring. Cena re-grouped, dropped Bray with another AA outside the ring and ran into the ring. All of a sudden, the other two member of the Wyatt Family rushed out and helped Bra back to his feet. They then began beating down Cena, but were soon interrupted by the returning Usos. Bodies were soon everywhere as the Wyatt’s got back on their feet and picked up some tables. The Usos and the Wyatt’s soon got even more violent with their face-off, which culminated in both teams getting put through tables. Once Cena and Bray both recovered, Bray body splashed Cena through the barricade. They both got back to their feet and fought into the arena. Cena and Bray fought over to the pyrotechnics area, which saw Cena hit the AA on Bray through a containment case. Cena enclosed Bray in the case by dropping another one over his prone body for the final 10-count.

Best Moments/Highlights: Both women locked up to begin things. Paige took it Alicia and got her down to the mat with a suplex from the ring apron.
