Lashley says it’s true he made a mistake and Waller suggests joining him and Austin Theory, an offer that Bobby rejects because he says he already knows what the theory is. Street Profits shows up and Lashley tells him he doesn’t want excuses and that they’ll have to prove they’ve changed and leave the ring. Theory comes out to confront Cameron Grimes.

Jimmy and Heyman appear alone and Jimmy claims that they are going to beat him up so he won’t let him get to Fastlane.

Afterwards, Knight signed a contract to be Cena’s partner at Fastlane.
