Jimmy went for the Uso Splash, following a super-kick on Dominik, but the latter put his foot up. Then, the major botch happened as Dominik rolled Jimmy up for the pin and victory.

However, as shown in the post-match replay, the referee made a mistake as Jimmy Uso kicked out in plenty of time. The camera panned back to backstage as Roman asked Paul Heyman to bring the Usos back to him.
