The broadcast team hyped the State of Mex-America Address featuring Zeb Colter and Alberto Del Rio for after the break… [C]
When we return from the break, Alberto Del Rio and Zeb Colter made their entrance. Colter parked his scooter in front of the broadcast table and delivered his promo from there.

Del Rio spoke in Spanish. Zeb said the borders of Mex-America are closed.
Jack Swagger made his entrance and got a USA chant. Swagger stood on the stage and said he can’t believe what he’s hearing. He said Colter used to put his hand over his heart and stand for something. He said he and people looked up to that.
[Q8] Swagger said Colter is turning his back on his people. Del Rio told him not to talk to Colter like that and refereed to Swagger as a stupid American. The moron fans actually chanted USA again. Wow. Swagger said he promised to defend the country against all enemies both foreign and domestic, and said Del Rio should do something about it if he doesn’t like what he’s saying.
Swagger headed to the ring and had a staredown with Del Rio, who then backed out of the ring and left with Colter. Swagger stopped Colter and then had the fans join him in saying We The People… Cole hyped Charlotte vs. Paige… [C]

Ryback Takes Out The One Man Band
Heath Slater stood in the ring with a mic on a mic stand and his guitar. Slater said there’s way too much country going around these parts. He said the one man band brought a little rock-n-roll with him so they could hear what good music sounds like it. He ran through some of the modern country names and said he wasn’t talking about them or even Johnny Cash.
Just as Slater was about to perform, Ryback made his entrance. Cole said he heard Ryback is a Luke Bryant fan. Slater ended up smashing his guitar over Ryback’s back. Ryback didn’t flinch. Take that Jeff Jarrett! Ryback destroyed Slater and finished him off with Shellshocked.
Dean Ambrose & Dolph Ziggler vs. Kevin Owens & Tyler Breeze
Cole hyped Dean Ambrose and Dolph Ziggler vs. Kevin Owens and Tyler Breeze next up on Monday Night Raw.
Dolph toned down his ode to HBK and Motley Crue look from the night before and wrestled in his t-shirt for some reason. Breeze blasted Ziggler with a great kick to the head, then Owens tagged in.
[Q11] Ziggler caught Owens with a dropkick and eventually made a diving tag. Ambrose worked over Breeze and clotheslined him to the floor, then followed up with a suicide dive. Owens took a shot at Ambrose, but Ziggler superkicked him to the floor. At ringside, Owens sent Ziggler into the barricade. Inside the ring, Ambrose came back with Dirty Deeds on Breeze for the win. Owens was shown watching the pin from ringside rather than attempting to break up the pin.
Winners: Dean Ambrose & Dolph Ziggler
