Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode Defeated The Street Profits

Review: Pretty good match but I don’t see Ziggler and Roode being a legit tag team to take the titles from the Profits and it’s just not really feud I’m really exciting to see for the tag division.

Murphy Defeated King Corbin

Corbin went on the mic calling Murphy and the Mysterio Family spineless cowards. He wants a rematch with Murphy next week and says he’ll be prepared.

Review: It was okay. I’m glad Murphy got the win and he is being featured a lot more with this storyline but the match was still just average.

Review: Good match. The ending to the match wasn’t too bad but it definitely got me excited for a Roman and Kevin Owens feud for the Universal title.

Overall Review: This wasn’t a perfect show by any means but they had its moments like the Sami/Big E segment and Kevin Owens possibly being the next challenger for Roman after the ending to the show. Other than that, everything was kind of average.

Grade: 5/10
