WWE RAW Tag Team Title / WWE SmackDown Tag Team Title Match
The Usos (Jey Uso & Jimmy Uso) (w/Sami Zayn) (c) vs. Hit Row (Ashante Adonis & Top Dolla) (w/B-Fab)

Clearly Hit Row wasn’t taking Usos belts here. This was mediocre at best as Usos can only carry a team so much and Hit Row aren’t really doing it since their return. 

2 / 5

WWE SmackDown Women’s Title #1 Contendership Gauntlet Match
Emma vs. Tegan Nox vs. Shayna Baszler vs. Liv Morgan vs. Sonya Deville vs. Raquel Rodriguez vs. Xia Li

This had its moments and left me wondering why we can’t see women’s stuff like this in matches more often. The Liv / Rodriguez stuff was good and Rodriguez winning here was the only logical choice. 

3 / 5

Singles Match
Rey Mysterio vs. Angel (w/Humberto)

A quick fine match. Mysterio breaking out a new finisher and reminding us how good he is in ring isn’t a bad thing. 

2.5 / 5

Miracle On 34th Tag Team Street Fight
Braun Strowman & Ricochet vs. Imperium (Giovanni Vinci & Ludwig Kaiser)

The annual Christmas Brawl type match. Goofy and nothing serious but also nothing special. Fine main event but something more so you’d see on a house show. 

2 / 5
