Nikki regained the advantage before tagging out to Alexa Bliss. Sasha got a blind tag from Dana Brooke, but Alexa Bliss got the advantage on Banks until Bayley tagged in. After Bayley hit a few moves on Bliss, she tagged Sasha back into the match. With a grouping of superstars on the outside, Nikki Cross climbed to the top rope and dove onto the pile. Banks grabbed Nikki and tossed her into the stairs leading to the commercial break. After the break, Sasha and Nikki were legal but Dana Brooke seemed to take Nikki’s spot leading to her hitting all of her acrobatic moves. Several of the competitors came into the ring, but Banks tagged out to Bayley and they maintained the advantage over Dana Brooke. Banks and Bayley tagged in and out for a few minutes with Brooke taking all of their offense. Banks got a near fall on Brooke when Bayley hit a suplex and knocked Alexa and Nikki off the apron. After a suplex and enziguri, Dana got to Lacey for the hot tag. Lacey went for her top rope moonsault, but Sasha pulled Bayley out of the way. Bliss and Cross ran in to make the save.
