Card is Subject to Change
1) The Usos defeated The New Day (Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods w/Big E) & Nakumura & Rusev (w/Lana) to retain the SmackDown Tag Titles. The crowd was hot to start, and a long time was spent with pancake tossing. New Day were over especially Kofi with him being the # 1 Contender for the WWE Title. Good action with The Usos winning with a double superkick to Nakumura.
2) R-Truth beat Andrade (w/Zelina) to retain the U.S. Championship. Truth did “What’s up” forever, but the crowd was into it. Truth pinned Andrade clean after the “ What’s Up” finisher then picked out a bunch of kids from the crowd for a dance.
3) Gallows & Anderson beat Sanity. This was a pretty quick tag match with The Good Bros. Getting the win with the Magic Killer on Young.
Miz TV Segment Featuring AJ Styles -Miz comes out and cuts a promo about how he should be an Oscar winner from his movies. AJ Styles then made the announcement that on Raw, ROMAN Reigns said his Leukemia is in Remission and plans on returning to the ring soon to a very positive reaction. The Bar came out and interrupted which led to an impromptu tag match.
4) AJ Styles & The Miz defeated The Bar ( Sheamus & Cesaro) Miz had good charisma in the ring and the fans cheered on both Styles and Miz. Sheamus and Cesaro worked well as heels. AJ got the pin with the Phemomenal Forearm on Sheamus.
5) Erick Rowan defeated Shelton Benjamin. Not much offense for Shelton in this one , Rowan wins with a Chokeslam.
- The SmackDown Woman’s Title was being introduced and it was interrupted by The Iconics who now served as the Guest Ring Announcers.
6) Asuka defeated Charlotte Flair to retain the Smackdown Women’s Championship. A lot of the crowd loved Charlotte. There was a lot of woooing. Charlotte is such a pro and comes off as a star. Asuka still had the fans behind her. Charlotte really worked to get heat, talking trash, encouraging Becky chants, even telling someone in crowd to shut up. In the end Asuka made Charlotte tap out via the Asuka Lock.
7) Jeff Hardy & Rey Mysterio defeated Randy Orton & Samoa Joe. The crowd was behind All Four men and had the typical WWE Good fast pace tag action match with lots of near falls. Orton hit the RKO and almost picked up the win on Rey But was broken up by Hardy. At the end Mysterio Hit Orton with a 619 and Hardy pinned Joe after a Swanton Bomb.
- Overall a solid show with a good crowd that was into it all night. The Civic Center had about 3000/3500 in attendance.
