After Alexa Bliss was left alone in the ring by a frustrated Nikki Cross, Bliss became the target of The Fiend as he fired a brutal shot at universal champion Braun Strowman by attacking his former Mixed Match Challenge tag partner.

Bliss, who had been at ringside for Cross' loss to Bayley in their match for the SmackDown women's championship, would find out the truth of that statement the hard way.

After Cross shoved Bliss to the ground and stormed out of the ring, the lights went out, only to come back and reveal Bliss was now trapped in the ring with The Fiend.

When given time, Styles is still one of the best wrestlers on the planet, and it was certainly good to see Metalik afforded the time to put on a good, featured match.

Drew Gulak via pinfall: The match started after Gulak attacked Corbin from behind after Corbin interrupted a promo being cut by Jeff Hardy.

Riddle immediately hit the ring and attacked Corbin, who had told Shorty G he put a "King's Ransom" bounty on Riddle's head earlier in the night.

Big E also had a brief comeback end when he missed a splash on the ring apron heading into a commercial break.

Sonya Deville brutally attacked Mandy Rose: Rose and Otis were preparing for a date when Rose told Otis she was going to get ready.

As Rose was putting on makeup, Deville attacked her, smearing the makeup across her face and cutting off chunks of her hair with scissors before grabbing clippers and trying to shave her head.

Nikki Cross via pinfall to retain the title: Cross was fired up from the jump, attacking Bayley in the corners before hitting a Thesz press to deliver a bit more punishment to the champion.

Cross also scored with a big crossbody from the ring apron to the floor, keeping Bayley almost completely on the defensive.

Bayley finally took things over by attacking the "cracked rib" of Cross, the injury suffered at Extreme Rules.

In return, Cross began attacking the ribs of Bayley before hitting a tornado DDT.

Banks again tried to hand off the Boss ring to Bayley for the cheap win, a callback to Extreme Rules as well.

Cross hit another crossbody, setting up a series of pin reversals before Bayley managed to slam Cross down face-first to score the pin and retain her championship.

This was a decent match, though Bayley and Cross don't quite click on the same level as some of the bigger pairings in recent months and weeks.

The Fiend attacked Alexa Bliss: Earlier in the night, Bray Wyatt hosted a "Firefly Fun House" to open the show.

After Cross' loss to Bayley, Alexa Bliss attempted to console her, but a frustrated Cross shoved her to the mat and stormed out of the ring.

As Bliss sat in the ring, the lights went out, only to come back on with the familiar red lighting and The Fiend himself in the ring.

A terrified Bliss sat still while The Fiend slowly brought his hand toward her face before locking in the mandible claw as the show went off the air.
