Eden introduced Ric Flair to a great reaction. He announced the bad news that Seth Rollins would not be here because of his knee injury last night. The crowd were really looking forward to seeing him. The replacement main event would be Kane vs. Big Show.

(1) The Dudley Boys beat WWE tag champions New Day in a non-title Tables match. Good reaction for the Dudleys – the crowd got what they wanted with the Dudleys winning.

(2) Cesaro beat The Miz after spinning him around over 30 times! Yes, 30!

After the match, The Miz issued a challenge to anyone to come out and take him on. R-Truth came out and…

(3) R-Truth beat The Miz in around 10 seconds! Took him longer to get to the ring!

(4) Becky Lynch beat Brie Bella (w/Alicia Fox). Good reaction for both Divas. Becky won by making Brie tap out.

(5) Curtis Axel beat Bo Dallas. Nice to see Curtis without the Hogan gimmick.

(6) Dolph Ziggler beat Tyler Breeze (w/Summer Rae). Tyler and Summer provoked the crowd by saying they were in England. Big reaction for Dolph, who won the match after Summer Rae was sent back to the Locker Room by the ref.

(7) Divas champion Charlotte beat Paige to retain the Divas Title. Good reaction for both Divas, with Paige being the loudest.

(8) NXT champion Finn Balor beat Sheamus in the Match of the Night. Big reaction for Finn. Lots of ‘NXT’ chants throughout the match (and the rest of the night). Finn is already a big fan favourite – looking forward to him moving up the main roster.

(9) Kane beat Big Show (Seth’s replacement) in a Street Fight by Chokeslamming him off the top rope through a table. Both took turns using Kendo Sticks and Chairs. Massive pop for the Chokeslam off the top rope.

After the match, Big Show struggled to get to his feet, waved to the crowd, and fell back down again. The ref went over to him, covered him, and got a two count before Show kicked out. The ref ran as fast as he could backstage; I’m guessing this was a rib on The Big Show.

They announced another U.K. Tour in April 2016. No dates yet, but the tickets will be on sale 20th November. Lots of “NXT” chants tonight – looking forward to them coming to Cardiff, Wales next month.
