Barrett managed to retaliate with a sidekick and then tagged in Cesaro. Kofi hit a jumping cross body and some punches followed by SOS for the pinfall. Barrett came in to break it up, so hit Truth comes in to hit Little Jimmy on him, and they both go to the outside. Kofi tries for Trouble in Paradise with Cesaro ducking it.
