(1)  Imperium def.

*LA Knight to the ring…can’t have WrestleMania in LA without LA Knight…New Day interrupt, Kofi says Knight hasn’t been around long enough to be demanding anything…Kofi & Knight have words…Kofi challenges Knight…a referee slides in as we go to break.

(4)  Karrion Kross def. Rey Mysterio…Rey has Kross set up for the 619 but when he hits the ropes he knocks Scarlett into the ring, taking the ref’s attention…when Rey tries to finish the 619, Dom Mysterio catches Rey’s legs & pulls him to the floor…when Rey heads back in, Kross lands a forearm shiver & follows with the Krossjacket for the submission win (08:37)…AFTER…Dom into the ring, begs Rey to hit him…Dom shoves his dad, pie-faces him…Rey rolls out.
