Chris Jericho opens the show in Liverpool with the Highlight Reel and his guests are HHH and Stephanie McMahon. Steph asks who could run the WWE besides The Authority? Jericho says he could do it, then says the WWE Universe could do it. He asks the crowd if they’d like to see HHH lick his boots and Steph in a cess pool of filth — of course they all want to see it. HHH says he doesn’t need the crowd’s acceptance, nor Jericho’s. He then threatens to erase Jericho from the WWE history books.
MATCH: Sin Cara vs. Bray Wyatt — Wyatt finishes with a Sister Abigail and the pin.
After the match Bray Wyatt has a message for Dean Ambrose and says, “Let me fix you!” Ambrose comes out and Wyatt tells him, “I know you want to punish me just like you want to punish your daddy.” Wyatt makes a dramatic exit as usual, then later on we see him attack Ambrose backstage during an interview (see video below).
MATCH: Adam Rose and Bunny vs. Gold & Stardust — Stardust finishes Bunny with a Dark Matter, then the pin.
MATCH (Intercontinental Title elimination match): Dolph Ziggler vs. Cesaro vs. Tyson Kidd — Kidd pins Cesaro first. Ziggler hits a Zig Zag on Tyson, then the pin.
MATCH: Natalya vs. Layla — Nattie taps Layla out with a Sharpshooter.
MAIN EVENT MATCH: Ryback vs. Kane — Kane is disqualified for using a chair, but Ryback ends up smashing him with the chair several times and the show ends with Ryback in a staredown with HHH on the apron. It’s still unclear whether Ryback will be part of Team Cena or Team Authority (or either) at Survivor Series.
