Balor went to get a table but Reigns hit him with a flying clothesline. Fans booed with Reigns said that there would be no tables in the match. Reigns then grabbed a steel chair and he jabbed Balor in the gut several times. Reigns went for a chairshot to the back but Balor countered into a double stomp to the gut and then driving Reigns into the steps and barricade. The fans popped when Balor pulled a table from under the ring but Reigns hit the drive-by into the ring post.

They fought around the set for the Kickoff show and Balor dove with a crossbody off the Kickoff show glass table and onto Reigns that sent them crashing through a wood table. Back in the ring, Balor brought a table in but Reigns caught him and chokeslammed him through a table.
Punk hit a Superman punch but Balor kicked out of the pin attempt. Reigns tried a spear but Balor countered into the sling blade but Reigns finally hit the spear. Balor kicked out while hitting a low blow. Balor hit the coup de grace but The Usos pulled him out of the ring before the 3 count. There’s no DQ so the attack from The Usos was legal. The Usos tried to put Balor through a table but he fought back and took them both out. Balor slammed Jey through the announcer’s table but Reigns then speared Balor through the barricade.
