Match 6: Samoa Joe (c) vs. R-Truth vs. Andrade vs. Rey Mysterio

Background: Rey Mysterio and Andrade were due to go one-on-one on the kickoff show. However, after Carmella began a petition for R-Truth to receive a United States Championship rematch, Samoa Joe signed it and said he would face anyone. It was then announced that a Fatal 4-Way rematch from SmackDown Live would take place on the main pay-per-view.

Summary: Joe got off to a flying start (literally) when he bulldozed his way through the ropes and wiped out his opponents at ringside. Mysterio had several high-flying moments, notably when he hit a hurricanrana from the top rope onto Andrade on the outside. Joe and Andrade had near-falls with their finishers, while R-Truth landed a Five Knuckle Shuffle in the closing stages. In the end, Mysterio hit a 619 on Joe but he missed a top-rope splash, allowing Joe to lock in a Coquina Clutch to make him pass out.

Verdict: Very good. Everybody in this match offered something different. Truth remains the most entertaining Superstar in WWE right now. The only problem here was that, on a card of predictable outcomes, the outcome of this last-minute match was also very predictable.

Grade: B
