Review: The match was really good. I don’t think it was main event worthy but it did what it needed to do.

Overall Review: This wasn’t one of their best shows on the level of what they have done in recent weeks but it was mostly an average solid show. The opening with Sasha and Bayley was by far the best thing on the entire show.

Grade: 6/10
