This match started off slow with some constant back and forth action in which Tye took the lead and assumed the lead and looked like he would eventually win this match. It was pretty standard for a kickoff match until Aiden took control. After he was taking it to Tye he placed him in a choke hold and was taunting him by his usual god awful singing. After the choke hold he went to the top rope in attempts to do a cross body in which Tye countered with a drop kick and seemed to turn the tide. However that was short lived because after Tye went for his finisher, which he evaded, Aiden went to the outside and lured Tye out there to give him a strong clothes line. Once back in the ring he does a reverse RKO in which he gets a 2 count on Tye. After Tye kicked out Aiden starts to lose control and throws a temper tantrum in the ring and needs to get some composure again if he wants to win this match. After that Tye gets Aiden in the corner and gives him the perfect 10 punches and goes for a superplex off the top rope in which Aiden counters with a headbutt. Aiden then does a crossbody which leads to a roll up 2 count, then a counter by Tye for a 2 count as well. After that Aiden hits Tye with the reverse RKO for a 2nd time and this time was successful with a 3 count for the win.
Winner: Aiden English

Corbin ducks out to reset and is up to a 4 count. Nakamura is taunting him to come back in. They swap places as Nakamura is now on the outside. As he tries to get back in Corbin get him and stomps away at him. Kind of a slow moving match to start and now Corbin gets Naka into a bear hug and is putting stress on his lower back. Naka uses the elbow to the back of the head to break the hold, and then reverses it into a form of an arm-bar submission. Once that's broke, Corbin gives Naka a big boot and gets a 2 count. Naka rolls out of the ring and Corbin follows him out and is taking it to Naka on the outside with two strong moves of putting Naka into the guard rails. Once the ref is up to 6 Corbin brings Naka back into the ring and keeps the pressure on.

Naka finally kicks out and then Corbin goes for a chokeslam and Naka stuns Corbin with a kick to the chests! Corbin is on his knees and Naka does some strong style kicks until Corbin catches one in which he uses his other leg to deliver another one. Naka follows this up with good vibrations in the corner and lines him up for 2 knees to the midsections which leads to a 2 count. Naka keeps the pressure on but Corbin reverse the whip in which Corbin goes for the splash in the corner but when Naka moves Corbin goes under the ropes, comes back in and gives Naka a wicked clothesline and almost knocks him out of his shoes. Corbin goes for a suplex in which Naka countered and hit Corbin in the head with 3 successive knees to set up his knee strike, in which Corbin counters it into a deep six which gets another 2 count. Both men are struggling to get to their feet and both get up at the same time, they are going back and forth but Naka gains the momentum briefly but then gains full momentum after a counter and then uses a couple of knee strikes while Corbin is on the ground, He is waiting in the corner trying to psyche himself up but Corbin is not getting up so Naka goes over to him and pulls Corbin up, once he is up he does a low blow and gets disqualified! such a bad ending to a great match... however this does nothing to hurt either men, in fact it actually could help both of them to become more involved in other story-lines.
Winner: Shinsuke Nakamura
After the match Corbin starts to walk away but comes back and hits Naka with the briefcase and then hits the End of Days! He then walks away with the briefcase held high.

Punjabi Prison Match for the World Heavyweight Championship
Randy Orton vs Jinder Mahal (c)
Orton starts the match quickly and takes it to Jinder. Once Jinder gets away he calls for one of the doors to open. Both combatants are attempting to get out the door but no one gets out! 1 door is not locked for good. Now Orton is throwing fists at Jinder but Jinder used an arm breaker and now Jinder is focusing on the arm. Jinder is focusing on the arm and has used different means to damage it. He twisted it around the structure, he put him in an arm bar, he also wrapped it around a rope. He is looking to damage it so Orton will only have 1 arm to climb. Jinder calls for the 2nd door and is prevented to try to get out. Orton is crawling on the mat to try to get out but Jinder pulls him away and when Jinder tries to get out Orton stops him and now the 2nd door is locked. Only 2 remaining to get out. Orton is starting to use the structure to hurt Jinder but Jinder has decided to try to climb out. Orton drags Jinder back down who hit the top rope on his way down, not so fun lol. Orton is bringing out the inner viper and goes vintage but JInder counters and causes Orton to go head first into the structure. Jinder is continuing to assault Orton against the structure but Randy countered the most recent attempt and Randy suplexed Jinder into the structure to by some time. Orton is now applying pressure and using the ropes as well. Orton called for the 3rd door to be open, but by the time he gets there Jinder gets there to prevent him from leaving. They both are now trying to get out but both are not successful. Now we are down to 1 door remaining before they have to climb out of both structures. Both are now taking a few moments to stare at each other and the remaining door and then they go after each other. Orton does a power slam and then goes vintage this time with the DDT off the ropes. Orton called for the 4th door then goes for the RKO but it was countered with a knee to the face. Jinder goes for the crossface crippler but Orton countered into an RKO. The Singh Brothers show up!!!! They pull Jinder out of the last door before it closes and before Orton can get out. Orton is climbing the inner structure and then reaches over to the outer one to prevent Jinder from climbing over that one and to keep the fight going. After Orton knocks Jinder off the structure the Singh Brothers drag Orton back down and beat him up. Jinder then gives Orton a big kick with the help of the Singh Brothers. Orton is fighting back and takes out the brothers and is now climbing the structure and pulling Jinder back down. Orton turns his attention back to the Singh Brothers so he can keep them out of it. After that Jinder grabs a kendo stick and breaks the first one over Orton and then grabs a second one. Orton then grabs one and nails Jinder with it right across the head, which i think Â was supposed to hit his shoulder, but then continued the assault against his arms and body. Samir climbs through the hole in the structure and he climbs up the outside to slow Orton down and is successful for a moment until Orton regains control and knocks Samir off and through the announce table 15 feet below. Now Orton and Mahal are almost at the top fighting each other and they both dropped back down to take the fight to each other as a safer level. Mahal got his leg caught in the structure and gave Orton the opening he needed to do his vintage DDT. Orton's left arm is still in bad shape and he really can't lift it, how will this continue to be a hinderance for him. Orton grabbed a steel chair and has taken out Samil and is now using it against Jinder. Orton is now thinking about climbing the structure again in an effort to win the championship. Samil goes up after Orton and slows him down for a moment but the Great Khali shows up!!!!!! The Great Khali is here!!!! Khali has Orton in a chokehold and is passing out! Jinder is climbing out of the cage and is going to keep the title!!! Jinder wins with the help of the Great Khali!!!! Orton will definitely have something to say about this on Tuesday!!
Winner: Jinder Mahal
Overall I felt this was a decent show and will help build the matchups for Summerslam
Based off of my predictions (ones in bold) I was 5-3 and felt I had a pretty good sense of what was going on. While I was completely surprised by the Great Khali showing up, I should've guessed that.
