APOLLO CREWS, THE HYPE BROS & AMERICAN ALPHA def CURT HAWKINS, THE ASCENSION & THE VAUDEVILLIANS.
SMACKDOWN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP
THE WYATT FAMILY (BRAY WYATT & RANDY ORTON) def (HEATH SLATER AND RHYNO)
This was an expected victory but WWE should not have mad the match up short considering the fact that rhino and heath slater are actually a good tag team. The match up lived up to expectation with Randy Orton delivering an RKO to an unsuspecting rhino. Congratulations to Bray Wyatt on winning his first championship in the WWE but he should beware history suggests Randy Orton as never been a good team player
MATCH RATING: 7/10
NIKKI BELLA def CARMELLA (NO DISQUALIFICATION MATCH)
This might upset some ladies reading this. It was horribly dreadful with both superstars failing to match each other up with their moves and the only bright spot was when Nikki Bella sprayed Carmella with a fire extinguisher and setting her up for the Rack Attack 2.0. please WWE let this be the last of Nikki Bella vs Carmella feud. After the match Carmella alleged that Natalya was the one who attacked Nikki at Survivor Series.
MATCH RATINGS: 3/10
THE MIZ def DOLPH ZIGGLER (INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP LADDER MATCH)
This duo understand each other perfectly and this was another epic performance from both of them. This match shows the Miz can actually beat Dolph without the help of his wife Maryse or the spirit squad. Dolph had the upper hand in the beginning of the match but Miz rallied and was almost effectively over when Miz applied a figure four leglock on the leg of Ziggler Which was trapped in a ladder. In the end as Ziggler was about to retrieve the title belt Miz showed he is still a great heel when he attacked Dolph with two low blows to retrieve the belt and retain the title. After the match the Miz showed why he is the best heel right now in the WWE by delivering a stunning mic work and a mic drop which garnered applause from the WWE universe.
MATCH RATING: 8/10
BARON CORBIN def KALISTO
O.M.G big ups to the two competitors. A chairs match is not always an exciting match but this two made this one epic. The match was billed as a David vs goliath match and Kalisto showed some wonderful airborne move and baron was no different hitting Kalisto with a powerful clothesline with a chair before setting up Kalisto for the END OF DAYS onto a pile of chairs to win the match
MATCH RATINGS: 9/10
ALEXA BLISS def BECKY LYNCH (SMACKDOWN WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP TABLES MATCH)
All hail Smackdowns new queen ALEXA BLISS. This was a good match with both women avoiding being put through a table. But Alexa came up with the win by power bombing BeckyLynch through a table after a squabble on the ring apron
MATCH RATINGS: 6.5/10
AJ STYLES def DEAN AMBROSE (WWE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP T, L, C MATCH)
This was another classic between styles and Ambrose and damn it was good. This match should be nominated for next year’s slammys for the match of the years.
In a match where anything goes dean Ambrose found his play ground, he suplexed styles through the chairs put styles through the announce table. The highlight of the match was a spectacular springboard 450 splash by styles to put Ambrose though a table outside the ring then James Ellsworth appeared and distracted styles from climbing the ladder. As styles attacked Ellsworth Ambrose clotheslined Styles and performed a DIRTY DEEDS on styles onto the ring steps. As Ambrose climbed the ladder to retrieve the belt in a moment of shock James Ellsworth pushed Ambrose from the ladder causing Ambrose to fall through two tables outside the ring allowing styles to climb the ladder and retain the championship.
