Bobby Roode comes out and says he wants one more shot at Bobby Lashley’s championship, then MVP and Kenny King come out and taunt him. MVP says Roode could have another chance at the title, but he has to beat both of them, and if and when he loses, he’ll never get another title shot again. MVP asks if he’s willing to do that, and Roode almost immediately says he accepts, but MVP and King end up laughing it off.

Winner – Bobby Roode
Ethan Carter comes out and said he’s had victory after victory, and he’s vanquished everyone in his way so far, but now Rockstar Spud has an opportunity. He demands Spud comes out and makes amends, then Spud comes out and says they are friends and he knows him better than anyone. Spud says he knows Ethan’s favorite color and habits, and Ethan says it’s impressive, but Dixie Carter was still put through a table because Spud failed. He says Spud is a loser, but Spud disagrees, and Ethan screams ‘loser’ at him several times and slaps him in the face. Spud has enough and slaps him back, then he screams at Ethan to hit him, but Ethan just tells him that he’s fired.
MVP is bragging to King and Lashley about still coming out on top, but Kurt Angle storms in and says MVP can’t pull this crap anymore. He says MVP isn’t GM anymore, and he is going to give Bobby Roode another fair chance at the title. Angle says Roode will fight in a number one contender’s match, and MVP won’t be part of it, so he’d better stay away.
