Up next is the reunion of former Tag Team Champions Edge & Rey Mysterio, as they battle Judgment Day.
Edge got a thunderous ovation and the crowd was singing his theme song. Edge was also wearing a Mask similar to that of Mysterio during his entrance.
At one point during the match, Edge hit a 619 on Finn Balor to a huge pop. Edge later speared Damian Priest out of the ring through the ropes as well.
Rhea Ripley attacked Dominik Mysterio on the outside.
In the end, Dominik tripped Balor. This led to Mysterio hitting the 619 on Balor and Edge then hit a Spear to pick up the win!

Attendance for tonight is 62,296.
Up next is the match that was originally scheduled for SummerSlam 2022: Seth Rollins vs. Matt Riddle.
During the ending moments of the match, Rollins talked trash about Riddle getting divorced.
This pi$$ed off Riddle and he almost hit Rollins with a Steel Chair on the outside.
Rollins escaped the chair shot and laid out Riddle in the ring with a Stomp. Rollins then put Riddle away with a Stomp from the second rope.
