The Shining Stars have been eliminated.

The three remaining teams on each side come in and go face to face and launch into a big brawl, and everyone powders out while Rhyno & Slater wind up going at it with Enzo and Cass in the ring.  Cass gives Enzo the assisted mosh to the floor, then Cass big boots Rhyno to the floor.  Slater comes off the top with a space dive that wipes everyone out.  Sheamus comes in and rips Gable's head off with a lariat, Jordan takes him out, then Cesaro comes in and giant swings Jordan, then Gable German suplexes him out of his boots, then Jordan backdrops Gable onto everyone on the floor.  WHEW!  Gallows comes in and nails Jordan, and the Club hits the Magic Killer to pin Jordan.

American Alpha is eliminated.

Slater is in and drills Anderson with a kneelift, leg lariat to Gallows, but Anderson hits a spinebuster on Slater.  Gallows comes in and slams Slater, then drops a series of elbows on Slater.  Gallows accidentally knocks Enzo off the apron, and that distracts Gallows long enough for Rhyno to tag in and gore Gallows for 3.

The Club is eliminated.

Cass and Enzo quickly hit the rocket launcher on Rhyno for 3.

Heath Slater & Rhyno are eliminated.

One of the Usos comes in and goes at it with Enzo and drills him with a superkick, then the other comes off the top with a splash for 3.

We're down to the Usos against Sheamus & Cesaro, and Sheamus hammers one of them with forearms in the ropes, then hits a Finlay roll.  Sheamus misses a Brogue kick and eats an enziguiri, the Usos hit a double superkick to Cesaro, then Seamus hits one of the Usos with a Brogue kick and dumps the other, he makes a cover, but the other Uso breaks it up at 2.  Sheamus clotheslines one of them to the floor and puts the other on the top rope, and he goes for a super White Noise, but the other Uso blind tags in and comes off the top with a splash, but Cesaro breaks the cover at 2.  Sheamus makes the hot tag and Cesaro cleans house with charging European uppercuts, then a diving Eruopean uppercut off the ropes.  Cesaro dropkicks one of the Usos to the floor, he hits a 619, drills the other Uso on the floor, then comes off the top with a crossbody for 2.  Cesaro gets one Uso in the giant swing, then gets the Sharpshooter, but the other Uso comes in and superkicks him before taking Sheamus out with a dive.  The other Uso gets a Tequila Sunrise and Cesaro fights to the ropes, but he rolls out, gets back to the Sharpshooter, and locks it in.  Uso goes for the ropes, Cesaro drags him back out to the middle, the other Uso tries to come in and superkick him, Sheamus takes his head off with a Brogue kick, and Uso taps out.

Winners: Team Raw

Survivors: Cesaro & Sheamus

Great finish!  I love the dynamic between Cesaro and Sheamus.  Sheamus goes for a handshake, Cesaro goes to shake his hand, but Sheamus pulls his hand away, and they take turns playing to the fans.  Great match and great finish, I love Cesaro and Sheamus as a team.

Stephanie and Mick Foley are backstage, and Stephanie says that she didn't think Sheamus & Cesaro had a shot at winning, but Foley called it and that deserves a reward.  Tomorrow night on Raw, Sheamus & Cesaro get a shot at the Raw Tag Team Title.

Cruiserweight Title Match: Brian Kendrick vs Kalisto

They shake hands, and Kalisto immediately dumps Kendrick to the floor and takes him out with a dive, then rolls Kendrick inside the ring and hits him with a springboard crossbody for 2.  Kendrick goes for Sliced Bread #2, Kalisto blocks and goes for Salina Del Sol, Kendrick blocks, and they trade pinfall combinations for a series of 2 counts.  Kendrick catches Kalisto with a back elbow, but Kalisto whips Kendrick to the ropes and drills him with a running dropkick.  The ref backs Kalisto off, and Kendrick grabs him and Tullys him into the corner, then goes to the floor and wedges Kalisto's head between the ring and the steps and kicks the steps into Kalisto's head.  They go back into the ring and Kendrick maintians the momentum for several moments, then Kalisto starts to mount a comeback, but Kendrick snaps Kalisto's neck down on the ropes to slow that down.  They wind up fighting on the ring apron and Kalisto hits the Spanish Fly to the floor.  YIKES!  Kalisto takes Kendrick out with a dive, then dumps him back into the ring and heads to the top.  Kendrick charges and crotches Kalisto on the top rope, he goes for a back suplex, but Kalisto fights him off and goes for Salina Del Sol.  Kendrick goes to the eyes, dumps Kalisto off the top and goes right into the Bully Choke.  Kalisto fights for the ropes but Kendrick repositions and Kalisto fights and fights...and makes the ropes.  Kendrick rushes in with a double axhandle, hammers forearms into the kidneys, and the ref backs him off.  Kendrick charges into Kalisto's boot, Kalisto fires off a series of kicks, hits a rolling Samoan drop, then comes off the second ropewith a bulldog, a short rana, and he hits Salina Del Sol, but Kendrick gets his foot on the ropes at 2.  Great veteran move.  Baron Corbin suddenly runs in and nails Brian Kendrick, then catches Kalisto coming off the top rope and gives him the End of Days as the referee calls for the bell.

Winner by DQ: Brian Kendrick

Okay, that was kind of a screw finish, but okay.
