Rousey was given the big star reaction but did not acknowledge and played subtle heel for the 5 minutes she was in front of the crowd. Before exiting for backstage, she turned and gave the crowd the DX crotch chop.

(8) Braun Strowman pinned Baron Corbin in a no DQ match.

Final Thoughts: Approximately three hours bell-to-bell. The show was well-paced and crowd was hot for all the faces.
