Roode, a former NXT Champion who lost his title to McIntyre, finally got a chance at revenge. A win would have given him his first ever World Title in the WWE. Ziggler, who also has history with McIntyre, helped Roode get the upperhand in the match.

Roode eventually set up for the Glorious DDT. However, a Glasgow Kiss knocked him out momentarily. McIntyre tried to finish the match with a Claymore but Ziggler got on the way of the first one. Roode finally connected the Glorious DDT but the WWE Champ managed to kick out before laying Roode out with the Claymore for the win.

Roode last appeared in the WWE at Elimination Chamber. He has not been seen since because of the travel restrictions that have arisen due to Covid-19. On the June 22 episode of Raw, it was announced that Roode and Ziggler were traded to the Raw brand.
