-Cesaro mocks Ryder after the match, noting that Ryder cannot cut it in the real world. He is the US Champion, and look at you people, Cesaro says he is disgusted with them, and hates coming to this part of the country. But he has to because he is their champion. While he is the champion of an inferior country, he is a superior champion. His record proves that, the greatest champion in WWE history.

Kofi Kingston makes his way out, interrupting our US Champion. Kofi disagrees with Cesaro, and says Cesaro needs to back up his claims. Kofi says Cesaro is wrong and challenges him for a match on next week’s main event.

-End scene.
