Nikki sends her out of the ring and hits a kick through the ropes. Cross climbs to the top rope and hits a crossbody for a two count. She brings Bayley down with a running bulldog. Bayley gets a near fall with a backslide and counters a DDT before hitting the Bayley to Belly for the pin and the win.

Kofi addresses Joe and says it’s sad to see what he had become – from showing no fear he had gone to sneak attacks. Joe tells Kofi that if he shakes his hand, he would guarantee his safety till Extreme Rules.
