Daniel Bryan kicked off the show by addressing Sheamus' attack on him and Dolph Ziggler last week and Bad News Barrett's interference with his match earlier in the week. Barrett had cut Bryan short and entered to tell him that his magical week was turned upside down as he eventually met the bull hammer. Sheamus then arrived with his new theme song to brag about how he gave the Brogue Kick to Bryan to finish his week off. Sheamus said that he and Barrett would beat down on Bryan simply because they can. Ziggler eventually came out to even the odds and told Sheamus that he looks like a mixture of Jack Sparrow and a carrot top.

Big Show then came out to aide with Sheamus and boasted about his Andre the Giant Battle Royal win at WrestleMania. The three were ready to take Ziggler and Bryan apart until Roman Reigns' emerged through the crowd to make the save. Roman helped clear the ring to set up a match for later in the night.

New day made their way out to the ring to take on Cesaro and Tyson Kidd in a tag team match. Before the match, New Day told the crowd that they should love them and they are sick of hearing "New Day Sucks" chants. The two teams went back and forth until when Kofi Kingston was unable to hit the Trouble in Paradise due to the crowd chants causing a distraction. Cesaro took advantage by hitting a European Uppercut, which was followed by a Fisherman's Suplex to earn the win.

Neville took on Curtis Axel as the recently debuted high flyer looked to continue his winning run. The Man That Gravity Forgot knocked Axel to the outside to set up a plancha over the ropes that made the crowd go wild. The fight returned to inside the ring where Neville landed a body slam before finishing with the Red Arrow for the victory in just two minutes.

Natalya faced Alicia Fox as the two looked to outdo each other before the Divas Battle Royal on Raw next week. Cameron was the special guest referee with Fox getting in her face throughout the bout. Fox went for a flip but Natalya was able to counter and lock in the Sharpshooter to win by submission. There wasn't much time for celebration as Cameron laid out both Divas before striking a pose in front of her mirror.

Bray Wyatt came to the ring for a match with Erick Rowan as the two locked arms following their history as partners. Before the match, The Eater of the Worlds vowed that he will destroy Rowan as he is broken as he was before Wyatt saved him due to the WWE Universe's influence. Bray flipped and turned like a spider to crawl towards Rowan, which set up the Sister Abigail. Wyatt kissed the head of Rowan before planting him with his finisher for the win.

The main event saw Daniel Bryan, Dolph Ziggler and Roman Reigns take on Big Show, Bad News Barrett and Sheamus in a six-man tag team match. Bryan went for a crossbody off the top rope but Sheamus managed to catch him to set up the White Noise but Bryan countered again into a snap DDT. Bryan then tagged in Reigns who landed a Superman Punch on both Big Show and Barrett. Sheamus returned to the fold but was taken out by Ziggler for Reigns to hit Barrett with the Spear to earn his team the victory.
