The Evolution reunited with Batista and Triple H giving a taste of what may come in the next few months, Edge made his return as well with a Cutting Edge segment hosting SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch.
The Bar claimed the SmackDown tag team titles with a little bit of help from Big Show while Mysterio qualified for the WWE World Cup with a victory over the United States Champion, Shinsuke Nakamura.
