  • Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship Main Event Match: the Usos(c) vs the Mysterios. A really good match that saw the Uso's barely retain.

Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:

Afterwards, as Belair cut a promo, Bayley, Sky & Kai attacked Lynch backstage with a chair, injuring her further. 8:03-8:13pm EST.
  • Seth Rollins Spoke: Rollins bragged about injuring Riddle, exchanged words with the Profits and set up our second match of the night. 8:37-8:43pm EST.
