Woods says they’re sorry to cut them but they wanted to have a front row seat to see it and then they wanted to be by Ricochet’s side just in case. Gunther reminds Ricochet that he took the title from him and beat him twice, he proved that Ricochet is not worthy of a champion. He’s going to beat him again next week and he’ll do it in the worst possible way. The difference between the Imperium and the other three is that they respect the sport and they are wrestlers! Gunther signs the contract.
Ricochet claims he’s not going to give up, Gunther will see him regain the title. Gunther throws the table then a fight breaks out!

Kurt Angle just didn’t want to be upstaged by a real Olympian, Kurt Angle really sucks. The party is over, Otis is going to eat all the cake!
Kurt Angle leaves the ring and Alpha Academy enjoys the cake. On the stage, Angle tells them that by eating this cake, they’re going to need a lot of milk…a truck pulls up with Gable Steveson…and the two throw bottles of milk at Alpha Academy!
