Xavier Woods def. Bobby Lashley
Despite being infuriated over The New Day’s recent accusations that he has “gone soft” and absolutely dominating throughout most of the matchup, WWE Champion Bobby Lashley came up short against Xavier Woods. Woods used an inside cradle to stun The All Mighty just two days before his title fight against Kofi Kingston at WWE Money in the Bank.
The All Mighty was furious as he stormed out of the ring without bothering to wait for MVP.

Not to be outdone, McIntyre revealed that the sword Mahal had was actually a replica and that he still had the real one in his possession. He then destroyed Mahal’s prized motorcycle.

Bobby Lashley destroyed the VIP Lounge and sent a strong message to Kofi Kingston
Despite WWE Champion Bobby Lashley’s loss to Xavier Woods earlier in the night, MVP decided to throw him a celebration on the VIP Lounge. After several introductions, The All Mighty finally emerged but not for the celebration that his Hurt Business cohort expected.
After dismissing the girls from the ring, an enraged Lashley said that his WWE Money in the Bank opponent Kofi Kingston actually had a point when he said the titleholder had “gone soft” and insisted to MVP that it was going to stop. The enraged titleholder destroyed the VIP Lounge and promised Kingston that his career was finished at WWE Money in the Bank.
