  • Singles Main Event Match: Dominik Mysterio vs Mystery Opponent. The opponent turned out to be Sami Zayn, who defeated Dominik after a short but entertaining match. Afterwards, more seeds of discord were planted between Rey and Dom, building to an inevitable match. Shoot me. 9:37-9:42pm EST.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • The Man Came Around: Lynch came out to a huge pop. Carmella, Zelina Vega, Bianca Belair, Liv Morgan all came down to challenge Lynch. They brawled after Lynch refused and left. 8:05-8:15pm EST.
  • A Universal Truth: Edge declared he was done with Rollins and wants to go after the Universal title. Rollins declared he's going to have to be a little more like Edge to get back in the Universal title picture.
  • Rebranding: Baron Corbin has had a massive reversal in luck, is flush with cash, and now goes by Happy Corbin. He debuted new music and tron video with slot machines in it. I can't make this crap up.
  • Substitutes: Corey Graves & Kevin Owens filled in for Pat McAfee on commentary (out: Covid, but doing well).
  • Universal Championship Family Celebration: The celebration was interrupted by Finn Balor, who challenged Reigns to a title match next week. The Usos attacked Balor but the Profits made the save. 9:54-9:58pm EST.
