(1) The New Day beat The Bar.

(2) Primo vs. Sin Cara ended in a no contest when Sanity ran in and destroyed both. I thought it was kind of awesome that they came in because they didn’t have to. They came all the way to Albuquerque, dressed up, and had one minute of ring time. They did and it was awesome for fans.

(3) Andrade Cien Almas (w/Zelina Vega) beat Tye Dillinger. Awesome match! I didn’t expect to see Almas, so it was a treat to see him. Vega was awesome, too. She did the whole Paul Heyman-style intro by interrupting the ring announcer to introduce Almas.

(4) Rusev beat The Miz. Miz was awesome as always. He knows how to work the crowd. He showed a certain star power, in my opinion.


(5) Becky Lynch beat Sonya Deville. Lynch got the biggest pop. I enjoyed your podcast where you guys talked about how we like her but expect to see her lose all the time. Deville ranted on Twitter about her late arrival, but she made it.

(6) The Bludgeon Brothers beat Karl Anderson & Luke Galows. A lot of “Too Sweet” chants. Even Gallows was encouraging the crowd to say “Too Sweet, Woo Woo!” Anderson and Gallows had their moments with hot tags and they looked good, but of course the Bludgeon Brothers won with a top rope powerbomb to Anderson.

(7) Jeff Hardy beat Samoa Joe, Shinsuke Nakamura, and Shelton Benjamin in a Fatal Four-way match. Hardy still had his old make-up  on even though just before the match they showed his Smackdown promo on the big screen. That was weird. Short match. Hardy stayed around to sign pictures and mingle with fans.

FINAL THOUGHTS: Overall, we enjoyed the show. Worth the money for sure. The floor was full. I sat in a box right up from the floor and those were fun, but the upper deck was a little embarrassingly empty. I wanted more people to show up so they’d be back again sooner. All they said was see you Tuesday night on USA Network.

Thanks for the podcasts. I listen on my way to work and when I’m mowing the lawn. Good job!
