Braun Strowman then eliminated Big Cass. Only Henry and Strowman remained in the ring. They both exchange punches for a while before Strowman incredibly threw Henry over the ropes and thus eliminated the strongest man on earth.
Sami Zayn was the next man to enter the ring and he was followed by the Big Show. Strowman was on a roll by then and he ensured that the Big Show’s stay in the ring is short-lived. Tye Dillinger then entered the ring and both of them tried to eliminate Braun Strowman. It was an unsuccessful attempt and the latter then went on to eliminate James Ellsworth.
Barron Corbin came into the ring with Strowman still standing strong. Corbin and Zayn combined their strengths and finally, Strowman was eliminated.

Sheamus tagged with Cesaro and sent the New Day tag team out. Sheamus then tried to eliminate Cesaro but was then attacked from behind by Jericho. He then eliminated both Sheamus and Cesaro. It was after this that Randy Orton came in at number 23. Luke Harper also entered the fray, thus completing the fading Wyatt family with Bray Wyatt already in the ring. He was followed by Brock Lesnar who came and got everyone in the ring on their backs.
Lesnar towered over everyone in the ring until the entry of Goldberg. Goldberg ensured that Lesnar gets eliminated. He himself then met his match when the Undertaker entered the ring. Goldberg eliminated Luke Harper and Rusev but the Undertaker got Godlberg out of the ring. The last man to enter the ring was Roman Reigns.
