Austin Theory came out to the ring as Ricochet and Sami Zayn's match was set to start, and he walked around the ring and approached Pat McAfee, being in the chair next to him. Theory simply sat there madly as McAfee didn't know what to do about him while Michael Cole tried to relax him down. Cole then began speaking about the match and carrying on however then Theory got up again and started getting in McAfee's face. Theory slapped him once again like last week, but this time McAfee acted and got some revenge, jumping up on the table and after that leaping off to knock Theory down to the flooring.
McAfee struck Theory with a flurry of punches as Theory tried to get to his feet, however then McAfee kept the attack going, slamming Theory's head into the commentator's table.
He then slammed him into the table two more times, and then he grabbed him and tossed him across the table, where he cruised past and clashed into the chairs and then struck the flooring hard.McAfee then jumped back up on the table and dove into Theory once again, striking him with a lot more punches. Security then came to divide them up and Theory began walking away. Security escorted McAfee out but then Theory turned around and began speaking with McAfee once again.
Theory then charged towards McAfee and triggered security to hold him back and press him away, and then both wound up heading backstage.It remains to be seen how this will affect McAfee, as after the brawl Michael Cole called the Intercontinental Championship match in between Ricochet and Zayn by himself. There wasn't a good deal of time left in the episode, so this might be something that doesn't get addressed until a social post later on or next week's episode.
