WWE SmackDown Tag Team Title #1 Contendership Fatal Four Way Match
Cesaro & Mansoor vs. Jinder Mahal & Shanky vs. The Viking Raiders (Erik & Ivar) vs. Los Lotharios (Angel & Humberto)

A fun but quick 4 way tag match. I really hate the rules for this as they just make zero sense when you think about it. It was a fast moving match though that was clearly made for Viking Raiders to win. Everyone got their time in but it could have used a few minutes more with some close falls. 

2.5 / 5

Singles Match
Natalya vs. Aliyah

Natalya brags about records and thus gets pinned in record time. Not even a match really and pretty dumb. 

.5 / 5

Singles Match
Sheamus vs. Ricochet

A really solid match between these two. Their chemistry from their matches on Raw shows here and Sheamus sells Ricochets moves so well. The ending was really cool too and both these guys are some of WWEs most consistently solid wrestlers. 

3.5 / 5

Singles Match
Kofi Kingston vs. Madcap Moss (w/Happy Corbin)

A quick match where half the time was sent doing promos. Madcap likely won’t ever do much and seeing Kofi, ex champion, lose like this just is pointless. At least it was a loss by distraction and not a straight up normal loss. 

1 / 5
