The audacious move resulted in Adam Pearce barring Li from competing, altering the evening's bout structure and leaving fans in anticipation of the fallout. In the aftermath of the bell, The Judgment Day's power trio—Finn Balor, Damian Priest, and Dominik Mysterio—joined by JD McDonagh, unleashed a coordinated attack on Sami Zayn.
The fray was intensified by the timely intervention of Jey Uso and Cody Rhodes, leading to a frenzied melee. Official Adam Pearce seized the moment to announce the upcoming Men's WarGames match at WWE Survivor Series, sparking excitement for what is sure to be an explosive confrontation.
