Bray grabbed a chair and began beating Cena with it. Cena finally got the chair as they ended up outside on the floor. Cena nailed Wyatt with it across the back.

Cena fought him off and went for an AA but Wyatt escaped and slammed Cena through the table instead. He referee began counting him out but he stood up at nine, then leaned against the ropes.

Bray stomped Cena’s head into the steps, then slammed him down on them. He retrieved the steel chair from earlier but missed nailing Cena with it. Cena nailed him with the steps.

The crowd chanted, “This is awesome.” Cena reversed an Irish Whip and sent Wyatt into the ringpost, then over the remnants of the ringsteps. Cena grabbed Wyatt but was backdropped across the bottom of the ringsteps. Bray nailed a back senton splash on the floor.

Cena was clutching his back and coughing as he made his way around the ringside area. Wyatt nailed him several times and went to nail him with a chair but Cena ducked and nailed the AA. He slid into the ring as Wyatt was counted down but The Wyatt Family returned (they had brawled to the back with the Usos) and attacked Cena. They helped Wyatt up and began beating the hell out of Cena. The referee counted Cena down as they began setting up a table outside. The Usos returned. One of them hit a dive on Rowan. The other went to do the same on Harper but was slammed in the face with a table as he hit the ropes. Nice spot. Wyatt was down during all this but the referee was distracted by the chaos.

Rowan was knocked down in a sitting position in front of a table on its side. The Uso nailed a rear end splash through the table. Meanwhile, Harper superplexed the other Uso off the top through two tables at ringside.

With all the other bodies littered around the ring, Cena and Wyatt began fighting again. Wyatt nailed a running charge through the barricade on Cena. It looked awesome and left the surrounding area looking like a war zone. Cena stumbled into the crowd with Wyatt following. They brawled on the floor. Cena was tossed over some production boxes and some pyro went off (the camera missed them) with the idea that this was the pyro’s production area. Cena nailed the AA off one of the production boxes, putting Bray through the other. Cena then toppled another box over atop of the hole, trapping Wyatt in the box, where he was counted down.

Your winner, John Cena!

A really great brawl with a lot of big spots. I thought this was just a dynamite brawl that made everyone look like big stars. I am sure some will hate the finish but I thought it was pretty clever. Everyone had their moments to shine here. Lots of brutal spots. A nice back and forth brawl. Wyatt and Cena earned their money tonight and so did the Usos, Harper and Rowan. Great match!

They battled to the floor, then back into the ring. Paige finally came alive and yanked Fox off the top rope feet-first. She set up Fox for the Scorpion Crosslock and Fox tapped.

Your winner and still WWE Divas champion, Paige!

Match was OK but nothing really special.

The crowd chanted, "You tapped out" (well, some of them did), so Fox freaked out and ran to the back. No abuse of the ringside personnel this time.

They went to the panel where they discussed what a great match tonight has been.
