Dominik fought out and they went back & forth early on. Lee dropkicked Dominik to the floor at one point and went to follow but Ripley got in the way. Dominik taunted Lee from behind Ripley as the show went to commercial. Lee finally got hit hands on Dominik and went to work. Dominik turned it around and unloaded in the corner as Ripley looked on.

Dominik ended up going for Three Amigos as Ripley did the taunt for WWE Hall of Famer Eddie Guerrero at ringside. Lee blocked the third suplex but Dominik dropkicked him, then went on to hit 619 and a Michinoku Driver for 2. Dominik went for the Frogsplash but Lee moved. The back & forth and pin attempts continued until Dominik grabbed the title belt but Lee nailed a suicide dive.

Lee kept control and went up for a Spinal Tap. Finn Balor rushed in from out of nowhere, distracting the referee. Damian Priest also ran in but Lee hit him with a Cardiac Kick. Ripley hit Lee in the back of the head with a belt shot, allowing Dominik to get the pin to win the title.
