Mr McMahon says that they were never going quit, but also says that Kofi will always be a B+ player. He then questions whether the rest of the New Day are B+ tag team? So another Gauntlet is set up, Big E and Xavier Woods must fight against a number of Tag Teams and if they win, Kofi Kingston will face Daniel Bryan for the WWE Champion at Wrestlemania.

The Miz says he wants a Falls count Anywhere match with Shane McMahon at Wrestlemania after what Shane did the Mr Miz at Fastlane. McMahon comes down with security along with Shelton Benjamin, Sanity and one of the Colons (Don’t know which one, does anyone?!). Shane accepts Miz’s challenge and mocks his Dad again, bringing up a picture from Fastlane, also saying that he made a ‘Miztake’ (HA GOTEM) when he impregnated Miz’s mum (21 SHANEAGE).
