In a Six-Man Gauntlet to determine Roman Reigns' competitor at the Royal Rumble:

  • Rey Mysterio eliminated Sami Zayn in 18 seconds by pin fall.
  • Shinsuke Nakamura eliminated Rey Mysterio by submission.
  • Shinsuke Nakamura eliminated King Corbin by pin fall.
  • Shinsuke Nakamura eliminated Daniel Bryan by pin fall.
  • Adam Pearce eliminated Shinsuke Nakamura and will face Roman Reigns at the Royal Rumble.*

* Prior to the bell ringing, Roman Reigns and Jey Uso savagely beat down Shinsuke Nakamura. Uso superkicked Pearce, and he was laid upon Nakamura.

There were no non-match segments of any importance, and there were only a few as compared to usual. That's it for me, folks, see you all Monday for Raw!
