Prior to the high-stakes bout, Rusev delayed the action to treat the fans to a special rendition of “Lana is the best! Lana No. 1!” This quickly escalated into an explosive pre-match exchange of blows between all four competitors.
When the bell finally rang, Charlotte & Lana kicked off the action, and The Queen took change. When Lana kicked her opponent with a cheap shot during an impromptu test of strength moments later, an angry Flair fiercely responded, “You better to run.”
The Ravishing Russian did not take that advice, though, and soon drove Charlotte into the turnbuckle face-first. In the minutes that followed, Lana perhaps looked more impressive than ever. When Lana made the mistake of mocking Charlotte’s father, two-time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair, The Queen made her pay for it.
As the match grew more and more intense, Roode and Rusev fought back and forth for the edge with The Bulgarian Brute taking charge and grounding The Glorious One. Despite moments of Roode offense in the subsequent minutes, a devastating kick from Rusev crushed his opponent. However, when Rusev failed to execute a headbutt off the rope, he missed his chance to close down the opposition for good.
Charlotte soon reentered the action and took over, eventually locking in the Figure-Eight Leglock. However, with Roode down outside the ring, Rusev pulled his wife back into the corner. The Queen answered by slapping The Super Athlete, but when Rusev got tagged in, Roode was still unable to enter the match.
Charlotte responded by engaging Rusev with a series of chops, and The Bulgarian Brute decided to mock her inability to hurt him. As he joked, however, he failed to see Roode climb back into the ring behind him. In a flash, Roode planted his surprised adversary with the Glorious DDT for the huge win.
