In what should be a conclusion to the storyline, both delivered a great match to open the show. Both superstars used the stipulation to their advantage with Corbin chokeslamming Reigns through the announcer's table. Roman Reigns soon returned the favour when he hit Corbin with a Samoan Drop through the table. Interference from Dolph Ziggler, Robert Roode and The Usos followed, but 'The Big Dog' stood tall after he hit a Superman punch and then a spear in the dugout for the win.

WWE Champion Brock Lesnar entered the match at No. 1. He went on a dominating streak eliminating the next 13 competitors in a row.
