– A ten bell salute for Dusty Rhodes occurred at the start of the show.
Enzo & Big Cass d. Vaudevillains
Enzo and Cass were very over. Good match with some comedy including a chicken fight with Enzo/Gotch on their partner’s shoulders. Enzo got the pinfall with a Cass-assisted big splash from the top. After the match the crowd chanted for them to hug it out, and they did.
Bull Dempsey d. Jason Jordan
Bull was the face in this matchup. They repeated the spot from Bull v. Breeze with them running on the outside and Bull getting winded. Bull got the pinfall with an Avalanche splash from the turnbuckle.
Baron Corbin d. Rhyno
Lots of ECW chants as well as “Corbin sucks” chants to the beat of “New Day sucks.” Corbin got the pinfall with End of Days. After the match he attacked Rhyno again and received a gore.
Bayley & Carmella d. Dana Brooke and Emma
Bayley entered first, followed by Brooke and then Emma. Brooke and Emma cut a promo about how Brooke was ashamed to be from Cleveland, the “mistake on the lake” and that Bayley had no partner for this match since she has no friends, so it was now a handicap match. Enter Carmella. Dana Brooke’s family was at the show in a balcony box and were very vocal in their support of her. Carmella got the victory with her headscissors submission.
NXT Tag Team Champions Blake & Murphy with Alexa Bliss d. Zack Ryder & Mojo Rawley
A decent match between the teams. Ryder was very over while Mojo was not. There was a spot where Alexa came onto the ring apron to cause a distraction and was grabbed and kissed by Mojo. The champions retained with a frog splash.
NXT Women’s Champion Sasha Banks d. Charlotte to retain NXT Women’s Championship
The match of the night, in my opinion. They went back and forth with a unique spot where Charlotte had the figure four locked in, Sasha got to the ropes, and Charlotte slid underneath the ropes to the floor with the hold still attached. Sasha eventually got the win with the Bank Statement.
NXT Champion Kevin Owens d. Samoa Joe, Tyler Breeze, and Finn Balor
All four men were cheered. After Owens entered, chants of “John Cena sucks” began, and he got on the mic to say that very soon we will never have to see him again. A very good match. Owens mocked Cena by using the Five Knuckle Shuffle and Attitude Adjustment on Breeze. The finishing sequence was a Muscle Buster from Joe to Balor, a Beauty Shot on Joe, and a pop-up powerbomb from Owens to Breeze for the pin. After the match, Joe and Balor had a face to face staredown in the ring, only to too sweet one another and walk away.
– A lot of bionic elbows tonight and other tributes to Dusty.
