Ziggler watched the whole thing from the ring with Miz and Maryse but he’s not impressed. I swear it sounds like he calls Miz an “ass face” and threatens to slap the hell out of him.

The referee says Corbin tapped but he reaches for the bottom rope and grabs it.
Winner: Jack Swagger
– After the match, Corbin is shocked as there’s an argument over whether or not he tapped out. The referee goes to ringside to raise Swagger’s arm as we get a replay. JBL goes crazy about how Corbin didn’t tap, he was just reaching for the rope. Corbin throws a fit at ringside.

Styles tells Cena to shut up before he speaks. Styles says we all know what he’s going to say. Styles knocks Cena for comparing himself to an icon like Ric Flair when it comes to the 16 World Title reigns. Styles doesn’t care how many titles Cena wins, he will never be in the same conversation as Flair. Styles says Cena shouldn’t be worried about Flair’s legacy, he should be worried about AJ Styles. Styles says Cena chases history while he makes it. Cena goes at AJ but Ambrose gets in the way and has something to say. Ambrose says Cena is the master of the political spin and that’s how he’s been on top for so many years. He accuses Cena of stabbing anyone who got in his way in the back. He’s been trying to do it to Ambrose since day one. Ambrose says Cena can’t outwork him.
