So, after that PPV, I think we can all agree that at least WWE didn’t fuck up today. And overall, not a bad show, but nothing we’re really going to remember in a few months.
The first match saw Dolph Ziggler inexplicably win the United States Championship from Baron Corbin in a triple threat match between them and Bobby Roode. It wasn’t a bad match by any means but it was about everything I expected. Hell, I expected the Zigzag during the End of Days spot that happened during Baron/Dolph/Styles at the Wild Card Finals last year and that was the finish. So, yea.
Next was the best match of the night – The Usos defending the tag titles against the New Day, Benjamin and Gable, and Rusev Day. Happy Rusev Day to all, by the way. This match was great, to no one’s surprise. This Rusev Day thing has actually made me a fan of Rusev, so that’s good. Also Chad Gable is a beast and he needs to be a singles wrestler immediately. The Usos retained and you should watch this match.
Charlotte defeated Natalya to retain the Women’s in a trash match.
The Bludgeon Brothers squashed Breezango for fun.
Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn defeated Randy Orton and Shinsuke Nakamura in a meh match. It was what it was. It was really just a bunch of waiting for Shane and D Bry to be at odds as refs because you knew that was the finish and lo and behold, it was.
And finally A.J. Styles retained the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in probably Jinder Mahal’s best match. Now hopefully he’ll never get a world title shot again.
Anyways, WWE didn’t fuck up – they kept the belt on A.J. – and the tag title match was great. That was really all you could hope for out of this PPV, so no harm done.
