 Backstage Paul Heyman asks Roman Reigns about talking to Jey Uso.  Roman looked furious and ordered Heyman to talk to Jay.

#2. io skye vs zelina vega

 This match was very good.  However, both the wrestlers should have been given more time.  Bayley interfered and tried to distract Vega.

  However, it was damaged by Io Skye.  Sky looked to pin Vega with a rollup, but the referee was talking to Bayley.  That's why Skye was disappointed.  Vega took advantage and hit a 619 and stacked and pinned him.  After the match, Bayley tried to reason with Io.

  AJ applied a Style Clash on Carrion and was pinned.  Scarlett comes and distracts AJ.  Later, Scarlett slapped Styles.  Meachin attacked by pulling Scarlett out of the ring.  Cross got the benefit of this.  He dominated and pinned Styles with a tremendous move and scored the win.

 Result: Carrion Cross & Scarlett win

#7. Roman Reigns segment

 Roman Reigns asked the fans to acknowledge him.  Jey Uso entered and Roman Reigns asked him to answer whether he (Jey Uso) is part of the bloodline or not.  Jey Uso asked Roman Reigns to choose between Paul Heyman and one of them. 

Roman reveals that Paul Heyman is not the Wiseman of the Bloodline, but his Wiseman.  Roman Reigns said that he has been training Jay Uso for a long time to become the next Tribal Chief.  Roman said that it is difficult to separate The Usos.  Jimmy Uso enters and reveals that Roman is actually using Jay. 

Roman Rance said that Jay could not do anything while being with Jimmy, while The Usos main evented WrestleMania while being with him.  Roman pointed out that Jay cannot become Tribal Chief while staying with Jimmy.  Roman asked Paul Heyman who had a problem when he made Jey Uso his right hand man.  Paul took Jimmy's name.  Jey Uso looked at Jimmy and questioned whether it was true, or a lie. 

Jimmy told that it is true.  Jay looked disappointed and told Jimmy he didn't trust him.  Jey said that Jimmy is older and that is why he (Jey Uso) has always listened to his brother.  Jay said that he expects such things from Roman, not Jimmy.  Jey Uso said that when Jimmy was not there, he was main eventing the shows. 

He told the reason for this to Roman Rance.  Jay said that Jimmy is out of the bloodline and he is about to do the same.  Jey suddenly applied a superkick on Roman.  Jimmy and Jay team up to take out Solo.  In the end, The Usos teamed up to crush Reigns with a tremendous superkick.  The Bloodline is frayed.
