Corbin then went to Cody Rhodes to get the match and pointed out how he is the last person to beat Dragunov. However, Cody booked him in a triple-threat match against Dijak and the winner of the match between Bron Breakker and Carmelo Hayes. Hayes defeated Breakker to secure his place in the #1 contender match.
