Quick Hits Results:
- Kickoff Match: Kevin Owens defeated Murphy by pinfall.
- SmackDown Tag Team Championship Tables Match: Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura defeated The New Day (c) to win the titles!
- SmackDown Women’s Championship Match: Bayley (c) defeated Nikki Cross by pinfall.
- MVP defeated Apollo Crews via forfeit as Crews was supposedly unable to pass his pre-match physical. There was no match, nor clarification how MVP isn’t the new champion, as he should rightfully be.
- Eye for an Eye Match: Seth Rollins defeated Rey Mysterio
- Raw Women’s Championship Match: Asuka (c) vs. Sasha Banks ended…somehow. Bayley threw the referee’s shirt on and counted the pin and declared Banks the winner, but there doesn’t seem to be an official ruling on this.
- WWE Championship Match: Drew McIntyre (c) defeated Dolph Ziggler by pinfall.
- Wyatt Swamp Fight: Bray Wyatt defeated Braun Strowman
Author’s POV, Running Commentary & Thoughts:
- Kevin Owens vs. Murphy has been added to the kickoff. I couldn’t care less and I like both those guys. One of the things I hate about this era is that they REALLY phone it in on the impromptu matches added to the card. Remember how Liv Morgan vs. Natalya was added to WrestleMania, for instance? They don’t care and since they put such little effort into this, why do they expect anyone to attribute any value to it?
- I’d be good with never watching this Bayley and Sasha Banks hype video ever again. I’ve had to sit through it like 6 times by now, I think.
- Nice moonsault from Owens onto Murphy. That’s been the highlight so far.
- No need to watch the kickoff if you missed it. You didn’t miss anything.
SmackDown Tag Team Championship Match
- Everything looks so crammed with these tables on the entrance ramp.
- I always find it funny in a ladder match or tables match when there are multiple things set up, yet a wrestler goes out of his/her way to get a new one. There are like five tables ready to go and Nakamura is grabbing another one even though he’s walked past two to get to that. So illogical and funny.
- And now The New Day just did the same thing even though they’re standing right next to the one Nakamura grabbed! LOL. At least Michael Cole called them out on it.
- I’m not loving this match. It’s pretty uneventful.
- Oh hey, look at that. The table The New Day set up worked against them. That happens more often than not. What a cliche. And now, we have new tag champs. Maybe now we can finally get the new belts?
SmackDown Women’s Championship Match
- Alexa Bliss hyping up Nikki Cross, Asuka and Kairi Sane could have been a much funnier moment backstage. This didn’t get me to pop.
- Why is Bayley humping the plexiglass barricade?
- Yeah. I’m not digging this. My attention is waning.
- Sasha Banks helps Bayley retain. Good for the storyline. Now please follow it up with Bayley costing Banks her match or not helping her win, at least.
- What’s Bayley’s new finisher all about? Not sure if I like that, but it’s at least better than a belly-to-belly suplex, that’s for sure. Even a small upgrade is still an upgrade.
Bray Wyatt Promo
- Okay. Wyatt setting up that they had some terrifying footage to show, only for it to really set up a clip of the karaoke competition from SmackDown got me to laugh. At least WWE realizes how awful that was.
United States Championship
- They’re starting this off by saying Apollo Crews didn’t pass his pre-match physical. MVP says he’s the new champion due to forfeit. The commentary team acts like Crews is still the champion.
- WOW. That’s it?! Nobody is going to come out and wrestle the match to make him have to fight for it? There’s no follow-up? They’re just not having any match at all? This is a terrible event.
Eye for an Eye Match
- Rey Mysterio’s gear is pretty awful.
- Here we go with the kendo stick. Why are these around the ring? That makes no sense. I know the shoot reason is because they’re relatively safe, but what’s the kayfabe rationality behind kendo sticks being placed under a wrestling ring?
- This match isn’t seriously going to end with just the corner of the steps again and nothing else, is it? That would be the lamest way possible to end this, as we’ve already seen this a handful of times.
- WOW. It really is. GODDAMN this event is bad.
- And now Rollins is pretending to throw up even though we don’t see anything at all. Wasn’t there supposed to be CGI or something? There wasn’t even any fake blood!!!!! This is going on my list for the worst event of the year, for sure.
Raw Women’s Championship Match
- Please please please please please, Asuka and Sasha. Please don’t stink up the joint. This event’s been atrocious. Break away from that trend. Don’t follow it.
- This has been solid. Why do I get the feeling it’s going to end stupidly?
- Oh here we go. The referee got the mist. Now they’re taking the one match that had some legitimacy and ruining it.
- Bayley throws on the referee shirt and counts a pin and gets them to ring the bell….and they’re ending the segment?! WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON WITH THIS SHOW?
WWE Championship Match
- WWE is actually going with the thing I joked around about, wherein the stipulation of the match is that Dolph Ziggler has a bunch of advantages while Drew McIntyre has to wrestle standard rules. Ziggler can’t be counted out or disqualified, but if McIntyre does, he loses the title. That’s logical.
- This has been pretty good. It’s just a regular match, for the most part, but that’s okay. Here’s hoping they don’t end this in some ridiculous fashion.
- The more odds stacked against McIntyre, the better. It makes him the underdog in a way that he wouldn’t normally be. Then, we can root for him, rather than thinking he’ll just steamroll the smaller guy.
- 1-2-3 (or 3-2-1, Claymore) and that’s it. Thumbs up on a good match that was executed rather well. It could have been better if they had more toys to play with and weaponry, but I’m not going to complain in comparison to the other things that have been on this card.
Wyatt Swamp Fight
- We’re going full-blown Friday the 13th or something, aren’t we?
- Clone Strowman? Braun Cloneman? What are we calling the fake Strowman here?
- Imagine the guy who has to string up all those baby doll parts on the ceiling, kayfabe. Some dude’s just hanging out in the shed, fiddling around with that.
- Jake “The Snake” Roberts couldn’t be here to rangle up that snake and help Braun. Shame.
- Why did the snake bite teleport Braun? LOL.
- Kudos to the guy running around on fire.
- Alexa Bliss as a manifestation of Sister Abigail, coaxing Braun to be with her and all is actually a pretty interesting side story. That implies this whole time, Strowman’s had legitimate feelings for her in a way they never went down, storyline-wise.
- And it ends with the whole horror cliche of the monster still being alive and The Fiend being victorious, in a sense. That was about as good as I could have hoped.
