Bianca Belair, Asuka, & Alexa Bliss vs Bayley, Dakota Kai, & Iyo Sky (Damage Control)| 6 Woman Tag Team Match

Bayley def. Bianca Belair via Pinfall at 18:43

A very energetic opener here. Nothing all that outstanding, however it’s still 18 minutes of consistent good wrestling. I’m very surprised by Bayley pinning Bianca clean, but it’s a good way to set up their match at Extreme Rules. ***

Gunther def. Sheamus via Pinfall at 19:34

This match is slow, but astonishingly brutal. The way they just keep hitting each other no matter what is what wrestling is and I love to see. Gunther particularly beats Sheamus to his absolute limit before pinning him with a crazy lariat. Glad they got nearly 20 minutes with this one. ***1/2

Liv Morgan(c) vs Shayna Baszler | Smackdown Women’s Championship Match

Liv Morgan def. Shayna Baszler via Pinfall at 11:00

A surprisingly decent match, at least in my opinion, as Shayna works brutally on Liv’s arm while Liv plays underdog and had some nice counters to Shayna’s offense. The oblivion out of nowhere was good. **1/2

Edge & Rey Mysterio vs Finn Balor & Damian Priest (The Judgment Day) | Tag Team Match

Edge def. Finn Balor via Pinfall at 12:34

This was a very good tag team match that was fast, consistently paced, and had some good action in between. Also love the drama involved. Very surprised Dominik turned here, but that was awesome to see. ***1/4

Seth Rollins vs Matt Riddle | Singles Match

Seth Rollins def. Matt Riddle at 17:20

This match is very, very good with Rollins and Riddle putting on a stellar performance while telling a story of blood, anger, and revenge. Riddle nearly getting DQed works a lot and that Top Rope Stomp really does it for me. Great match. ***1/2

Roman Reigns(c) vs Drew McIntyre | WWE Undisputed Universal Championship Match

Roman Reigns def. Drew McIntyre via Pinfall at 30:48

This was….a lot. Roman and Drew were obviously going to have a dramatic banger of a match, but man this was something else. Multiple false finishes, plot twist, all put into 30 minutes. I loved the final few minutes of this, and I am absolutely shocked that for one, Solo Sikoa is here, and two McIntyre lost! This was great. What is next for Roman? ***1/2

Overall Thoughts: I am going to say that this was Show Of The Year for WWE. Everything meant something, everything was decent to great. The most consistent and entertaining show WWE has put on. Let’s see what’s next… 8/10
