R Truth didn’t realize he was fighting. Truth walks down to ring confused. All 6 others swarm truth. AKIRA TOZOWA WINS THEN ERIK WINS THE DREW GULAK WINS THEN TUCKER WINS THEN GRAND METLIEK WINS THEN LINSA DORADO WINS THEN R TRUTH WINS IT BACK AND ESCAPES WITH 24/7 championship for the 44th time 1.5/5  All of that for the same championship make the 24/7 segments more entertaining creative, please!!

Next Ali hits a backbreaker from the top rope but ricochet kicks out. Ricochet hits a nice jump on the rest of retribution then misses Phoenix splash and Ali locks in Koji Clutch for the Win. 4.5/5 Although WWE is ruining Ricochet they are finally giving Ali and Retribution a win and could start building them back up.
