WWE Pikeville, KY, live results: Sami Zayn vs. Rusev; Big Show & Kane main event

Sami Zayn vs. Rusev

By Shawn Burkett

- Enzo & Cass defeated The Dudley Boys

Match was a simple television tag match. Nothing special. The crowd was hugely hot for Zo and Cass. 

- Apollo Crews defeated Bo Dallas

Crews broke out a finisher that I hadn't seen before: a belly to back alley oop to a sit down power bomb. Decent match. Much better than expected. 

- Sasha Banks defeated Summer Rae

Once again, the crowd was hot for Sasha. Match was a snoozer, though. 

- Golden Truth defeated Breezango

Boring match aside from Breezango playing their parts perfect. 

- Sami Zayn won a 15 man battle royal, last eliminating Cesaro

After it was down to Cesaro and Sami, they basically had a 5-7 minute singles match which totally lifted the whole battle royal. Good match.

- I-C Champion The Miz w/ Maryse defeated Darren Young to retain

Really good match. Darren can always go when given the chance. About 10-15 minutes of back and forth, solid. 

- US Champion Rusev w/ Lana defeated Sami Zayn

Probably the best match of the night. Lana got tossed for interference. Match was about 20 minutes. There at a point you would really think Sami was about to win the title, but with it being Pikeville, that wasn't happening. Both guys played their parts well, and got in their key spots.

Big Show & Kane defeated The Wyatts

Bray actually wrestled this match, but not very much. Bray got in some of his usual offense, then Rowan and Strowman took it from there. Rowan ate the pin after a double choke slam, so everyone could go home happy.
