Miz & Asuka vs. Big E & Carmella

Big E is all fun and games, and Miz hits a go-behind. Big E knows how to get out of that one...with a little dancing of course. Big E able to get Miz in an abdominal stretch and proceeds to slap the Booty-O of the Miz. The crowd chants "we want Asuka" and Miz obliges. Carmella not excited to join the fray. Big E grabs a big "L" and tells Carmella to give it to Asuka. The Empress of Tomorrow is smitten by the gift until she decides she no longer likes it. She rips it up, lets out a yell, and Carmella quickly tags back out.

Big E comes in and cleans house with a bevy of suplexes. Tides turned and pin is broken up by Carmella. Miz and Asuka decide to do simultaneous "It Kicks" a la Daniel Bryan. Big E catches Miz for a slam but a big boot from the IC Champ resets the match. Miz working over Big E as Carmella cheers her partner to get back into the match. Big E mounts a comeback but is quickly shot down. Stalling a bit now as Miz gets the bigger opponent in a head lock, goes for his splash in the corner, but nobody home. Asuka smartly makes the tag and goes to town on Carmella. Miz hypes up his partner but that allows time for Carmella to regain her senses and lands a big kick. As referee Mike Chioda shells out instructions to the competitors on time. We hit the finish right after that as Asuka goes on a fury of an attack and gets the arm bar locked in. Carmella fights for a short time until she has to tap.
