Earlier in the night, Big E had been attacked backstage before Kofi’s scheduled match with Sami Zayn. Kofi walked out with rage, assuming that this was Zayn’s doing.
The two had a rather good back and forth before Kofi prevailed over Zayn with a Trouble in Paradise. The Dreadlocked Dynamo’s celebrations didn’t last long though as Paul Heyman walked out with the Money in the Bank briefcase. The advocate teased a Cash in by Brock Lesnar. Kofi stood in the middle of the ring, ready for the challenge.

However, Ziggler came back to get one last hit in. Dolph chased the doctors away and placed a chair over Kingston’s head before stomping it one more time.
