After the match, Rusev and Lana came down to the entrance ramp with a couple of microphones. The crowd chanted “Rusev Day!”. Rusev said that Jimmy Uso are not the best couple in WWE. Rusev started singing “Lana is the best, Lana number one”. The crowd sang along as Lana vowed to crush Elias & Bayley next week on the Mixed Match Challenge. Lana added that next week they will celebrate “the ravishing Rusev Day”.

Elias and Bayley had a backstage promo. Bayley started to sing as Elias played his guitar and Elias told her to leave the music to him. Bayley asked if she could at least have a hug and Elias responded “no” and walked away. Jimmy and Naomi danced in the ring as the Mixed Match Challenge walked away. Goldust & Mandy Rose are now eliminated and Jimmy Uso & Naomi advanced to the next round of the tournament.
