They did some comedy after where Sheamus moved Miz’s body and Mizdow mimicked it Sheamus made Miz do the “YMCA” and finally nailed him with another Brogue Kick. Pretty silly but the crowd loved it.

Solid match. Mizdow’s stuff at ringside is great. Match itself was OK.

Your winner, Rusev!

Rusev celebrated with the Russian flag unfurling behind him and Lana.

This was OK in the ring but as a story, was about as perfect as it could have been as a way to build Rusev as he continues to ride towards main events.

Backstage, Dean Ambrose said Halloween is this Friday and the most popular costume will be Seth Rollins, because when they are done tonight, Rollins will look like a zombie from the Walking Dead and Dracula had a baby or something. It was pretty funny. He said they were going to Hell tonight. Usual good promo.
