Last week, Samoa Joe was the guest at the Miz TV where everyone from Miz, Braun Strowman and Bobby Lashley to Ricochet and Cesaro, staked their claim for the title. WWE later announced the no. 1 contender’s match for this week between those 5 men.

This week, Elias opened the show to announce that he will be the special referee in the Universal Championship match at Stomping Grounds. Seth Rollins hit him with the chair and left. Then, Elias became the punching bag for each participant of the match hit. Each of them brought out their big moves on Elias.

During the match, Strowman ran riot and quickly eliminated Cesaro and Bobby Lashley. However, they combined to get Strowman eliminated from the match. Ricochet and Miz battled the rest of the match with Ricochet coming out on top.

Ricochet will now get to challenge Samoa Joe at Stomping Grounds this Sunday. For more information, news and updates for Stomping Grounds 2019, you can follow this space.
