4. John Morrison defeated Kofi Kingston. Before the match, Morrison and Miz both declared for the Royal Rumble. Big E attempted to keep Miz from getting involved in the match, culminating with Kingston hitting a Trouble in Paradise on Miz to knock him off the apron. Morrison capitalized on the distraction and hit Starship Pain to win the match.
– Daniel Bryan came to the ring for the contract signing for his Universal Championship strap match against Bray Wyatt at Royal Rumble. Instead of coming to the ring, Wyatt appeared on the TitanTron and said he was trying to fax in his part of the contract. Ultimately, Wyatt said that he wasn’t fighting Bryan at Royal Rumble, the Fiend is. The Fiend teleported into the ring, attacked and whipped Bryan, and signed the contract in blood after repeatedly stabbing the pen into his own hand.
