Christian told them to stop and they would leave the ring before things got ugly.
Up on the apron, Edge and Christian stopped near New Day. They said they had promised the fans a five-second photo pose but since League of Nations was in the ring the fans would get the International House of Dumbasses tonight. New Day started laughing it up and then said when they said “turn the other cheek” this is what they meant. They started shaking their booties in the direction of the ring as a taunt. Edge pulled out a fistful of bills to “make it rain” on them as they danced it up while League was infuriated in the ring.
