Randy Orton vs Rusev

Rusev jumps Orton during his entrance and beats him up on the floor before rolling him into the ring.  The referee backs Rusev off while he checks on Orton, but Orton says he's good to go, so the referee calls for the bell, Rusev charges him, and Orton ducks and hits an RKO for the quick win.

Winner: Randy Orton

Well, that was fast. (That's what she said!)  Think they're done burying Rusev yet, or maybe they have more in the tank for this guy?

Bayley comes up to Sasha Banks backstage and wistfully wishes her luck tonight.  Sasha thanks her and leaves while Bayley stands behind her, clearly distraught over this missed opportunity.

Raw Women's Title Match: Alexa Bliss vs Sasha Banks

This turns into an immediate brawl, with Sasha going right after Alexa, only for Alexa to turn it around.  Alexa off the top with a bodypress for 2, then Sasha rolls it over for another 2.  Sasha goes to the top, but Alexa yanks her down and starts working her over, choking her on the ropes and grounding her with submission holds and strikes.  Alexa tries going to the top, but Sasha slams her off the top and then connects with a running knee.  Sasha starts unloading with forearms and a dropkick,  and a necktie neckbreaker for 2.  Sasha with a modified Pelle kick, Alexa tries a sunset flip out of the corner, but Sasha catapults her over her back and into the turnbuckle.  Nice!  Sasha hits a lungblower and goes right into the Bank Statement, but Alexa makes it to the ropes and pulls herself to the floor.  Sasha goes to the apron, but Alexa pulls on the ring skirt to make Sasha slip and tumble to the floor.  Great spot.  Alexa rolls Sasha back into the ring just to dump her back out to the floor.  Sasha beats the count, but Alexa goes after the arm Sasha injured on the fall as soon as she comes back in.  Alexa hits Twisted Bliss, but Sasha kicks out at 2, and Alexa is livid.  Banks catches Bliss in the Bank STatement out of nowhere, but Bliss goes after the shoulder to get out and cradles Alexa for 2.  Sasha rolls out and goes back to the Bank Statement, and Alexa taps.

Winner and NEW Raw Women's Champion: Sasha Banks

Great match, I loved the psychology in this one.

Finn Balor vs Bray Wyatt

THE DEMON IS HERE!!!  And Bray Wyat goes right to the floor.  He comes back in and goes toe to toe with Balor, coming up on the short end of the exchange.  Bray goes to catch a break on the floor, but Balor comes after him and connects with a big running forearm, then they head back into the ring where Balor comes face to face with UPSIDE DOWN BRAY.  He kicks his ass and connects with a charging basement dropkick.  Bray is holding onto the ropes for dear life and drags himself under the bottom rope...where Balor hits him with a somersault dive over the top rope.  This has been all Balor, but Bray nails him on a second dive attempt and suplexes him through the ropes and onto the floor.  Back into the ring where Wyatt hangs Balor off the top rope and hits a facebreaker for 2.  We hit the chinlock, but Balor gets free and connects with several charging forearms.  He dumps Bray to the floor and hits a baseball slide, followed by a running punt from the apron.  Balor hits Slingblade and charges...into Bray's big boot.  Bray with a uranage for 2.  Bray with a senton for another 2.  Bray goes to the second rope, but Balor hits him with a leaping enziguiri and an elbow/neckbreaker for 2.  Bray goes to the floor yet again, so Balor goes after him and hits a shotgun dropkick sending Bray into the barricade.  Back into the ring, Balor goes for another shotgun dropkick and eats a big clothesline.  That gets 2 for Bray, who seems confused about what it'll take to beat Balor, so he decides spider walking will do the trick.  Balor isn't intimidated, Bray can't beleive it, and Balor hits Slingblade and the shotgun dropkick, then Balor comes off the top with the Coup De Grace for the win.

Winner: Finn Balor

It was good, but Bray is so beat down by this point that it doesn't really mean much in the grand scheme.
