Roman Reigns (C) defeated Jey Uso for the WWE Universal Championship in an “I Quit” match

As promoted earlier, the match had “the highest stakes.” Roman and Jey both gave their best to make the opening match memorable.

Although Reigns had only the title to lose, the Uso brothers had much more. As per the conditions, Jey Uso and his brother Jimmy Uso have to take orders and acknowledge Reigns as The Tribal Chief or The Usos and their immediate families will be exiled from the Anoa’i family.

When things got intense, the officials tried to stop the match, but The Tribal Chief paid no heed. As the torture continued and Uso didn’t quit, Jimmy stormed into the ring and pleaded with Roman Reigns to stop hurting his family. Reigns answered he didn’t know who he is anymore.

Reigns put Jimmy in the guillotine choke, which made Jey finally quit. After the match, Afa and Sika were on the entry ramp, embracing Reigns and adorning him with a lei and the Chief’s title.

Although Hardy confessed he didn’t, Elias had the match to settle everything. The match was good and showcased both wrestlers’ prowess, but Elias was declared as the winner. Jeff Hardy smashed Elias’ guitar on his back and got disqualified; hence, Elias won.

Miz defeated Otis to win the Money in the Bank contract

Miz never considered Otis as a suitable Money in the Bank contract holder. He tried everything to break Otis’ morale as Miz moved Otis’s girlfriend Mandy Rose to Raw, tried to steal the contract, and sued Otis.

As announced by the Court of ThuderDome, Otis and Miz went into the fight to settle all disputes. John Morrison accompanied Miz, and Tucker accompanied Otis.

Morrison distracted the referee multiple times, but it was Tucker who showed his true colors. Tucker hit Otis with the briefcase, turning on his friend and allowing Miz to score the pin and capture the Money in the Bank contract.

Sasha Banks defeated Bayley (C) for the SmackDown Women’s Championship

Putting an end to the long feud of the former best friends, Bayley and Banks, The Boss won her first SmackDown Women’s Championship. However, Bayley, too, put on a great fight.

The Superstars tried to one-up each other in the best way possible. Bayley went really creative with various maneuvers to defeat Banks, targeting her neck constantly.

But Banks gave Bayley a taste of her own medicine as she used a steel chair to choke Bayley out in the Bank Statement. Bayley tapped out, and Banks came out of her third Hell in a Cell match as a winner.

Bobby Lashley (C) Defeated Slapjack for the United States Championship

This match came about after Mustafa Ali laid out a challenge for any member of The Hurt Business to face any member of Retribution on the pre-show. MVP said Lashley would defend his United States title against Slapjack.

Slapjack put up a good fight, countering Lashley most of the time. Lashley eventually had enough and tossed Slapjack around the ring for a few minutes before locking in the Hurt Lock for the victory.

Retribution ran into the ring after the match and attacked Lashley. Lashley was able to fight them off before the group had to flee when the rest of Hurt Business came to the ring.
