Balor suffered a pre-match attack from the Usos which weakened the challenger before the main event match. Balor gave a tremendous effort at conquering the "tribal chief" but came up short at the end of the match. Reigns attention now turns to next week Friday, where Lesnar would make an appearance to the show that would certainly involve a message to the champ.
During a backstage interview, Paul Heyman was shown receiving a phone call from Brock Lesnar. The advocate's phone rang with Lesnar's theme song as his ringing tone. After ignoring the call twice, he decided to pick up and explain that he was short of privacy. Later on, Paul narrated to Roman that Brock called earlier and that he said he would be in Madison Square Garden next week Friday.
