Otis def. Angelo Dawkins:
This was a pretty short match and a continuation of the rivalry between the "Street profits" and the alpha academy.
Jimmy Uso received a painful lesson in family from Edge:
After Edge addressed Roman earlier in the opening event of SmackDown, Jimmy Uso came out to call out the R-rated Superstar hoping that his cousin, Reigns would also show up eventually.
Edge came out and suspected this attitude of Jimmy to be a trap but when Uso claimed that Roman wasn't in the building, Edge set out for the attack on Jim.
Although Jimmy was able to defend himself with a super kick, Edge still put Roman's cousin down with a submission hold which forced Jimmy to eventually tap out. Edge didn't end there, but continued to torture Jim by using a steel chair on him and also as a tool for a submission hold.
Roman was anticipated to come out and fight for his cousin, but there was no sign of him. Edge taught Uso a painful lesson as SmackDown came to a close.
