The show started with a tribute video to “Rowdy” Roddy Piper then a 10 bell salute.

1. Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods (w/Big E) won a battle royal to earn a WWE Tag Team Championship match over Lucha Dragons, Curtis Axel and Damien Sandow, and Heath Slater and Brad Maddox in 14:00. Lots of punching and kicking to start off the match. It took a while for the first elimination.
Kofi eliminated Slater
Cara eliminated Maddox
Viktor eliminated Sandow
Konner eliminated Axel
Konner and Cara eliminated Each other
Kalisto eliminated Woods
Big E from the outside eliminated Kalisto and Viktor while they were teeter tottering over the top rope
Kofi Kingston was the sole survivor

2. Stardust beat Zack Ryder in 10:00. Lots of “Cody” chants. Ryder received a minor pop, but he’s lost so much since his United States Championship run and he needs a character over haul. Stardust played to the crowd. Typical match with Stardust hit the CrossRhodes (sorry, I don’t know the new name) and pinning Ryder.

3. Rusev (w/Summer Rae) beat Jimmy Uso in 9:00. I don’t think any of us were expecting Jimmy to show, when his voice played over the P.A system, we didn’t say “O” right away when he said “USE” part. Rusev played to the Canadian crowd, which booed him. A “we want Lana” chant at the beginning. Late in the match Summer Rae was on the apron distracting Jimmy while he was on the top turnbuckle. Lana came out to a HUGE pop. Lana slapped her. The ref tried holding her back, but she tackled Summer to the crowd’s delight. Rusev won the Accolade.

They played a Conner the Crusher video

4. The Prime Time Players beat New Day in 12:00 to retain the WWE Tag Team Championship. New Day worked the crowd before the match, saying even though we live in a dump, we know how to stay positive. Our kids are ignorant, arrogant, and stupid. Their mannerisms are funny, even though we’re suppose to boo them, it’s hard not to laugh. At the beginning, Kofi hit a dropkick and acted like it was something big. He came to the turn buckle and cheered with his fellow New Day members. Big E did the same thing a few minutes later after he hit a slam. They worked on Darren Young (who needs a character like you guys said, I understand when you guys say that), who made the hot tag and the place blew up! Cheering Titus’ power moves in person is fun. At the end, things got out of hand, Young hit Big E with the Gut Check, Kofi threw Young out of the ring, Woods tried to interfere, and Young pulled him down. That left Kofi and Titus. Kofi went to the second turnbuckle and jumped. Titus caught him then performed the Clash of the Titus for the win.

Intermission

5. Paige, Charlotte, and Becky Lynch defeated Sasha Banks, Naomi, and Tamina Snuka in 12:00. Before I get into the match, I have to say I’m sorry for not much detail in this match. Sasha Banks won me over in NXT. She didn’t stop to sign autographs or pictures before the show because I guess she plays a heel, but I was watching her the whole match. I watched her while she was on the apron (her reactions to everything) and in the match. As for the match, I could tell Charlotte was taking the beating until she made the hot tag to Lynch. Things were out of control and at the end Lynch hit the Disarmour on Tamina to make her tap.

There was a MizTV segment. Miz introduced a star, himself. Then he kept talking. A fan moving along where the Miz went in the ring held up a “Miz screwed Chelsea Green” sign. Miz acknowledged it and said I see the sign. Miz said he’s the toughest superstar in the WWE and that Big Show isn’t here, but if he were he’d knock the Big Show out. Show came out and KO’d him.

Got to vote Street Fight OR no street fight for the main event.
Street Fight: 67%
No Street Fight: 33%

6. Roman Reigns beat Bray Wyatt in a street fight in 24:00. The crowd popped huge for Reigns, the fireflies look awesome in person. Weapons used during the match: 2 tables, kendo stick, stairs, Bray’s apron, MITB briefcase (I’ll get more into that in a bit). The match started out with punching, clotheslining, and kicks. Bray went out, Roman went to get him from inside the ring. The first weapon came in hand when Bray hit him with the kendo stick. Not to long after they were on the other side of the ring where I couldn’t see. I could hear the stairs getting rammed, though.

Roman used a fan’s popcorn box filled with popcorn on Bray, so I’m guessing a fan was wanting them to use his Money in the Bank briefcase. The fan was sticking out his briefcase, shouting at them “use the briefcase.” They went into the ring. The fan got tired of holding his briefcase, then decided to throw it into the ring. I don’t think he meant to hit Reigns, but as Roman was selling the beating, the briefcase hit him in the back of the head! The ref and security guards got involved and I guess the fan had two other friends with him and they started a little brawl.

Roman took a table out, Bray put him through it with a urinage, but he kicked out at two. Bray set up a chair between the top two turnbuckles. The crowd chanted for another table, this time Bray took it out and set it up. Bray tried going for a superplex. Roman reversed it into powerbomb position and sent Bray through the table. Bray went for Sister Abigail. Roman reversed it, sent Bray headfirst into the chair, then speared him for the win. The match received 2 “this is awesome” Chants,
