All 3 stars in the ring are proven performers. They worked a decent match that was entertaining to watch. Storyline wise it offered very little though. This match was purely filler. Fortunately it was an enjoyable one.

The match started with AJ kicking Kofi. There were drop kicks, chops, back breakers, everything you ask for. Kofi landed a trouble in Paradise on The Phenomenal one. The move threw AJ out of the ring.
Kofi’s Money in the Bank Opponent, Kevin Owens appeared out of nowhere and attacked Xavier Woods. He threw him on to the steel steps. This distracted the WWE Champion long enough for Sami Zayn to hit him with a Blue Thunder Powerbomb. However Kofi managed to Kick out.
Kofi fought back and eventually pinned Sami Zayn after a ‘Trouble in Paradise’. Kofi Kingston still remains the WWE Champion. At least till Money in the Bank where he faces Kevin Owens.
