Singles Match
Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Damian Priest (w/Dominik Mysterio & Rhea Ripley)

Solid opening match. Priest could be a main event deal if booked right. Wish they had more for Nakamura though. 

3 / 5

WWE Women’s Tag Team Title #1 Contendership Turmoil Match
Candice LeRae & Indi Hartwell vs. Emma & Nikki Cross vs. Dana Brooke & Tegan Nox vs. Chelsea Green & Sonya Deville vs. Katana Chance & Kayden Carter

This match was fine but it doesn’t help the womens tag division. There aren’t really any legit teams here. Carter / Chance haven’t done anything on main roster, Candace / Indi are just friends who aren’t doing anything, Emma / Nikki same deal. 

2 / 5

Mixed Six Man Tag Team Match
The Viking Raiders (Erik & Ivar) & Valhalla vs. Alpha Academy (Chad Gable & Otis) & Maxxine Dupri

I really liked it. Alpha and Vikings are good in ring and Duper here shined. WWE is working well with the fact that she isnt a wrestling and had her do just enough to be impressive but her charisma really shines and the crowd was super into it. 

3.25 / 5

WWE Women’s World Title Match
Rhea Ripley (c) vs. Natalya

Rhea clearly wasn’t losing and Natayla is getting the rub for her Guiness World Records she just got. Natalya is fine in ring and can handle her own, its just everything else about her that doesn’t work. 

3 / 5

Singles Match
Giovanni Vinci (w/Gunther & Ludwig Kaiser) vs. Matt Riddle

Quick beat down match really to push Drew / Gunther. 

1 / 5

Non Title Match
Seth Rollins vs. Dominik Mysterio (w/Damian Priest & Rhea Ripley)

This was a fine match and worked for what they wanted. Dom isn’t a threat at all but with Rhea and Priest he is. This helped push Finn / Priest too eventually and teases Priest / Seth for the cash in. 

2.75 / 5
