2- Nikki Bella vs. Carmella

This rivalry is going on since the return of Nikki, after her injury.

Carmella has attacked Bella from behind many times during her match, but this was one-on-one competition to prove who is worthy than the other.

The Princess of Staten Island slapped Nikki to start the match, she immediately received one back from her opponent.

Carmella locked Code of Silence on Nikki, but she reached the bottom rope to break it.

Then Bella hit the Rack Attack 2.0 to pin The Princess of Staten Island for the victory.

3- Heath Slater and Rhyno (c) vs The Usos (Tag-Team Championship)

This was the second title match of the night and the champions gained an early momentum in the match.

RESULT: Heath Slater and Rhyno (c) defeated The Usos (via pinfal)

4- Baron Corbin vs. Jack Swagger

Last week on Smack Down Baron Corbin lost to Jack Swagger. Though he never tapped out in the match and Refree made a mistake and adjudged Swagger the winner.

Jack locked Corbin with the Ankle Lock but he survived it, as he reached the bottom rope. The lone wolf poked in the eye of Swagger, then hit him with The End of Day for 3-count.

RESULT: Baron Corbin defeated Jack Swagger (via pinfall)

5- The Miz (c) vs Dolph Ziggler (WWE Intercontinental Championship)

This was career vs title match between The A-lister and The Show-off.

During the match, the crowd chanted “Let’s go Ziggler” and “Let’s go Miz” around the arena.

At last Maryse interferred in the match, sprayed Ziggler in the face, which allowed Miz to hit the Skull Crushing Finale but Dolph kicked out from the pin. He is not ready to give up today at any cost.

Maryse called out The Spirit Squad to help her husband. Dolph welcomed Mickey with the Superkick, but this again allowed The Miz to hit Skull Crushing Finale on him. Ziggler kicked out of this cover as well.

Refree ejected Maryse and the Spirit Squad back to locker room. Now Ziggler took advantage of the situation and nailed Superkick to pick up the victory.

With this win Dolph Ziggler saved his career and became the five time Intercontinental Champion.

RESULT: Dolph Ziggler (c) defeated The Miz 

6- Alexa Bliss vs Naomi

Injury to Smack Down Women’s Champion Becky Lynch made her medically unfit to defend her title against Alexa Bliss.

So, Naomi was given a chance to prove her worth against the number one contender.

WWE Universe chanted “We want Becky” during the match. The Harley Quinn of WWE locked her opponent in the cross-arm breaker but out of nowhere Naomi pinned her for the win.

RESULT: Naomi defeated Alexa Bliss (via pinfall)

7- Randy Orton vs Bray Wyatt

Ortan went for the RKO in the starting of the match.

Luke Harper made a surpized return to shock The Viper and help The Eater of Woods secure a win.

Finally a win for Wyatt in the pay-per-view against a good opponent.


RESULT: Bray Wyatt defeated Randy Orton (via pinfall)

8- AJ Styles (c) vs Dean Ambrose vs John Cena (WWE World Championship)

The main event was for the WWE World Championship.

Dean locked AJ in the Knee Bar, Cena joined him and locked the STF. As expected Styles tapped out but who is the champion now? This is the controversial moment of the match.

Though the match continued and Cena hit Ambrose with the Avalanche Attitude Adjustment from the top of the ring. Did the cenation leader made history?

No, Styles came in the ring with a stell chair and hit John two times in the gut and to pick up the victory.

RESULT: AJ Styles (c) defeated John Cena (via pinfall)
