Big E and Cesaro started the match with the muscle of the New Day taking early control of the match. He delivered a throw showing his strength.
Kofi Kingston entered the match and tried to get an early pin with a drop-kick. Cesaro tagged in Sheamus to slow up the pace of the high-flying superstar. He delivered a clothesline to take control of the match. After that, Cesaro and Sheamus continued double-teaming on Kofi until Big E tagged in.
Cesaro was able to lock in the Sharpshooter overpowering E. Kofi ran into the ring breaking things up for his partner. He gave a swinging DDT to Sheamus to take him out. E tagged him into the match to connect with the Midnight Hour to pick up the win. It was a solid match to end Smackdown on a happy note.
