Heyman left with Brock’s title belt, and Joe went face-to-face with Brock in the ring. The two got into a huge brawl, trading shots. Eventually, Kurt Angle sent security guards down. When they got knocked out of the ring, a whole bunch of superstars from the back had to come to the ring and separate the two superstars. A “This is Awesome” chant hit before Raw went to break.
Elias Samson defeated Dean Ambrose via pinfall. The Miz and Maryse arrived at ringside. Ambrose got distracted and went after Miz at ringside. The distraction ultimately helped Samson capture the win after double knees and a finishing move to plant Ambrose on the mat.

Cedric Alexander defeated Noam Dar via pinfall. Dar came to the ring with a cellphone in hand, with Alicia Fox live video chatting him on it. She was shown on the screen on stage too.

Bray Wyatt appeared in a promo on the screen, talking about the world ending and collapsing under the weight of its own sin. Wyatt said he’s the only one who can save them and held up his lantern saying “I’m here.” He blew out the lantern and made his entrance to the ring. Bray continued his promo in the ring saying “he who blasphemes his name will be punished” and brought up Seth Rollins. He said he brought down Rollins’ glass house down last week with his truth so now Seth will be picking up shards of glass from his soul for eternity.
Rollins’ music hit eventually and he came to the ring to confront Bray about how easily he got under his skin. He told him it wasn’t blasphemy it was the truth. Rollins said if Bray’s got a problem with that he’s there in the ring with him now. Wyatt laughed it off saying he’s too powerful for him and Rollins doesn’t want this fight. Wyatt’s sound effect hit and the lights went out. When they returned, Bray was gone from the ring. Rollins looked around for him and Bray showed up on the big screen. He finished his promo saying Seth will face his fear and told him “Run.”

Heath Slater and Rhyno defeated The Miz and a guy wearing a bear suit. Miz’s partner was someone wearing a bear suit for the match. Late in the match, Miz suspected the bear was Ambrose so he attacked it and ran it into the barricade. When he took the mask off the bear, it wasn’t Ambrose. Miz got back in the ring and another masked bear entered. It kicked Slater and hit Dirty Deeds. Maryse tried to warn Miz about it as the bear unmasked it was Dean Ambrose. Miz accidentally knocked Maryse off the apron, who seemed hurt and went up the ramp. As Miz turned around, Ambrose hit Dirty Deeds on him and placed Slater over him for the pinfall.
Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson defeated Enzo Amore & Big Cass via pinfall. When Cass and Enzo came out, Cass was holding his head with one hand while shoving away refs with the other.

Post-match, Gallows and Anderson went after Enzo but Big Show’s music hit and he came to the ring to chase them off. Show helped up Enzo, and Cass got up to glare at Show until he left. Enzo tried to explain what was up to Cass who seemed upset over it.
Backstage, Enzo asked Show if he was the one who attacked Cass backstage. Show said it’s probably Cass who wanted to know and called him soft.
