WWE Live Event
Uniondale, New York at Nassau Coliseum
Report by Dot Net Member Don Murphy
1. Matt Hardy over Bray Wyatt with the Twist of Fate in 7:00. The crowd gave both loud pops, particularly Hardy. Hardy came out to his new Moonlight Sonata theme. A little clunky in some spots which I attribute to them being new to working together.
2. Paige, Mandy Rose, and Sonya Deville vs. Sasha Banks, Bayley, and Mickie James ended via ref stoppage. They stopped the match due to an injury to Paige. I didn’t see the move, but appparently Sasha kicked her in the back prior to her going down, according to fans around me. Paige seemed to be okay as she walked out with help from ref and trainer. The match was stopped at the eight minute mark. Might be a stinger. Editor’s Note: That’s correct, the injury is believed to be a stinger.
3. Goldust, Heath Slater, Rhyno, Apollo Crews and Titus O’Neill over Curt Hawkins, Curtis Axel, Bo Dallas, and The Revival in 8:00. Prior to the match, Elias was out with Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson and sang a version of “Piano Man” that mocked the crowd. It was truly awesome and drew massive heat. Goldust pinned Dash Wilder. Elias stayed at ringside. Really hoping the Revival can get back to form and won’t be lumped in with the undercard.
4. Enzo Amore over Kalisto in 9:00 to retain the WWE Cruiserweight Championship. Loud babyface pop for Enzo at the start, but he managed to gain heel heat by mocking Long Island, saying that the Islanders were right to move to Brooklyn and that he was the only champion the building has seen since 1983. He also stopped the crowd on the SAWFT spot, saying he was the only one who could spell it. So he spelled it fast so the fans couldn’t chant along. The finish came when Enzo grabbed the ring apron. When the referee took it away and had his back turned, Enzo poked Kalisto and rolled him up for the pin.
5. Samoa Joe over Finn Balor in 9:00 with the Coquina Clutch. New light gray tights for Balor. Fairly standard match. Balor looks lighter than I’ve seen him.
6. Asuka and Dana Brooke over Alexa Bliss and Nia Jax in 7:00. Asuka made Bliss tap to the Asuka lock. No reaction for Brooke at all.
7. Braun Strowman over Kane by DQ in 2:00. During the brief march, Strowman brought a table into the ring. Kane hit Strowman with a chair to cause the DQ. He then worked him over with the chair and set up a choke slam through the table. Strowman blocked it and hit the powerslam through the table. Strowman was way over and played to the crowd post match, ripping off his tank top Hulk Hogan style and throwing it to the crowd. He then took selfies with fans at ringside. Ugh.
8. Jason Jordan and Seth Rollins beat Sheamus and Cesaro in a cage match in 13:00 to retain the Raw Tag Team Championship. In one spot, Seth dove off the cage with a cross body block onto Sheamus and Cesaro. Seth escaped the cage but had to return when Jordan was getting double teamed. Jordan then escaped and eventually Seth, Sheamus, and Cesaro climbed over the top. Cesaro dropped to the floor but, Jordan held Sheamus on his shoulders preventing him from dropping to the floor, allowing Rollins to escape.
9. Roman Reigns defeated John Cena to retain the Intercontinental Title in 19:00. A slow match that picked up at the end. Reigns won with a spear. Loud New York boos for Reigns.
