Shinsuke Nakamura defeated Dolph Ziggler

This was a great opener. Nakamura got a big pop for his entrance and Ziggler played heel well.

- SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos defeated American Alpha and The Colons to retain their titles

Jimmy Uso rolled up Epico to get the win after American Alpha had hit him with a Steiner bulldog. The crowd got behind American Alpha as the match went along.

- Luke Harper defeated Erick Rowan

Harper won with a discus clothesline.

- Breezango & Sin Cara defeated The Ascension & Aiden English

Fandango rolled up Viktor to get the win. English took the mic afterwards to demand another match.

- Mojo Rawley defeated Aiden English

Rawley got a good reaction and won quick.

- United States Champion Kevin Owens defeated Sami Zayn to retain his title

Both guys got huge pops. As expected, they have great chemistry together. Zayn was the underdog while Owens was on offense for most of the match. Owens knows how to work a crowd and won with a pop-up powerbomb.

- Mark Andrews, United Kingdom Champion Tyler Bate & Trent Seven defeated Pete Dunne, Joseph Conners & James Drake

Andrews got a big ovation in front of his hometown crowd. This got a good amount of time and was arguably one of the best matches of the night. Andrews hit a shooting star press to get the win.

- SmackDown Women's Champion Naomi defeated Carmella (w/ James Ellsworth), Natalya, Becky Lynch, and Charlotte Flair to retain her title

Everyone got good reactions. Naomi retained after hitting Carmella with the Rearview.

- WWE Champion Randy Orton defeated Jinder Mahal and AJ Styles to retain his title

Mahal came out to a lot of boos and cut a promo similar to the one on SmackDown about him looking different. Orton and Styles both got great reactions. They had a good match, with Orton getting the win with an RKO on Mahal.
