New York, New York at Madison Square Garden
Report by Dot Net reader Andres De La Cruz
1. Dolph Ziggler beat The Miz. Good match early with Miz working heel. Ziggler won on a superkick with Miz jumping into it from the top rope. Good pop for Ziggler.
2. Kalisto beat Rusev (w/Lana) to retain the U.S. Title. Lana cut a promo on how the Knicks suck. Kalisto is loved by the kids. People still chant “we want Lana” pretty loudly. Rusev dominated. Rusev exposed the second turnbuckle and was going to put Kalisto into it, but Kalisto avoided and tripped Rusev in to it and gave him the Salida del Sol for the win. Kalisto was celebrating with the title until Ryback came out and attacked him.
3. Ryback pinned Sin Cara. After the last match, Sin Cara came out for the save. Ryback said Sin Cara hadn’t wrestled. They had a match and Ryback basically squashed Sin Cara.
4. Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks beat Naomi and Tamina. A huge pop for Sasha. A good match. Sasha used the Bank Statement to win the match.
5. Kane and Big Show beat Erick Rowan and Bray Wyatt (w/Braun Stroman). OK match. Strowman tried to attack after the match, but Kane and Show gave him a double chokeslam.
6. Charlotte (w/Ric Flair) beat Natalya to retain the Divas Title. Great match. It was the same as they’ve been doing lately, nothing different. Charlotte won with a roll up after distraction from Flair.
7. New Day beat The Usos and The Dudley Boyz to retain the WWE Tag Team Championship. New Day were awesome. Xavier wrestled in place of Kofi and had an awesome comedy skit about Xavier being slapped on the back. The Usos just act like the Young Bucks. It’s pretty annoying that they’re a rip off. The Dudleys were heels. New Day won clean.
8. Kevin Owens defeated A.J. Styles to retain the Intercontinental Title. Styles got an awesome reception and also Jojo announced that it was his MSG debut. Owens got a great pop but still got so much heat. Great match. Owens won clean. Styles cut a promo saying the crowd was phenomenal.
9. Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose defeated Triple H and Sheamus. Triple H got a crazy pop. Dean also had a great pop. Sheamus got heat and Roman had the same John Cena reaction of half and half. Triple H hit the Pedigree on Roman, but Dean broke up the count. Roman performed the spear on Sheamus for the win. Roman isn’t over.
1. Triple H
2. Dean Ambrose
