- Raw Tag Team Champions Cesaro & Sheamus defeated Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson and The Hardys to retain their titles

The Hardys came out first to a huge pop, with them getting a lot of "Delete" chants during the match. The teams worked at a solid, consistent pace throughout. Matt Hardy hit a Twist of Fate on Anderson after Sheamus tagged himself in. Sheamus threw Matt out of the ring and then scored the pinfall.

- Goldust defeated R-Truth

This lasted about two minutes. Goldust got the pin with his feet on the ropes, then R-Truth cut a promo saying that Goldust is going to get got.

- Jack Gallagher defeated TJP

They worked hard and had a quick-paced match without much high-flying. Gallagher won with a kick.

- Bray Wyatt defeated Apollo Crews

Wyatt got a big reaction as everyone took their phones out for his entrance. Titus O'Neil wasn't with Crews, which was a bit of a letdown. The match got more time than expected and went about 10 minutes. Wyatt stopped a comeback by Crews and hit Sister Abigail for the win.

- Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins defeated Intercontinental Champion The Miz (w/ Maryse) & Curtis Axel

The Miz cut a promo before the match, putting down the city of Hampton. Rollins sold for most of the match as it felt like he was on defense forever. Ambrose finally got the hot tag and it went from there.

Maryse tried to distract the referee, but she ended up getting ejected from ringside. Ambrose hit Dirty Deeds on Miz for the victory about 30 seconds later.

- Sasha Banks, Bayley & Dana Brooke defeated Raw Women's Champion Alexa Bliss, Emma & Nia Jax

Mickie James was the special guest referee for this one. She came out to a pretty good reaction in her home state. Everyone else got good reactions as well, especially Bayley, Emma, and Bliss.

Brooke sold for most of the match. Bayley got the hot tag, which led to the women all doing spots where they took each other out. Bayley hit the Bayley-to-Belly on Emma to pick up the win.

- Finn Balor defeated Elias Samson

Samson appeared in the ring when the lights came up and started singing a song knocking Hampton. Balor then got the biggest babyface reaction of the night. Everyone loved him.

Samson took most of the match, working over Balor's shoulder. Balor made a comeback and hit the Coup de Grace for the win as the crowd went wild.

- Roman Reigns defeated Braun Strowman by DQ

Strowman came out first and there didn't seem to be much booing from the crowd. Reigns got a split reaction.

This was a good match that I wouldn't mind seeing again. Both hit a lot of power moves. Strowman got the advantage until Reigns hit him with a few Superman punches, then the action eventually spilled outside of the ring, where Strowman grabbed the ring steps and hit Reigns for the disqualification.

Strowman continued the attack after the match. He brought out a table and set it up in the corner, but Reigns hit a Superman punch and speared Strowman through the table.
