Big E vs Baron Corbin (kickoff show)
This bout had nothing intrinsically wrong with it, and if nothing else, it put both Big E and the immensely entertaining Corbin on the show and in front of the greatest viewership WWE has had since before the COVID-19 epidemic. Big E's decision to reclaim his briefcase was the right one, as it sets up many scenarios for him to cash it in for his first world title on this night. It's a clever tease that will keep people interested even if they believe they already know what will happen. The conclusion also continues Corbin's downhill slide, which has been a highlight of WWE programming to this point.
RKBROs vs AJ Styles and Omos for the RAW TAG TEAM titles (Main show)
It's often necessary to strike while the iron is hot, and Orton and Riddle's championships couldn't have come at a better moment. Their reunion on Monday drew a huge crowd, demonstrating that they are one of the few performers on the red label that are resonating with audiences. Putting titles on them not only strengthens their odd alliance, but it also raises the gold to a level that Styles and Omos were never going to accept, no matter how over-the-top the former is. Riddle is a rising star, a real world champion in the making. Orton is one of the most well-known athletes of his time. Allowing them to collaborate offers up a slew of storylines, including the final split that propels Riddle to the top of the card. This was an above-average contest that caught the attention of spectators and kept them warm from the first bell.
Eva Marie vs Alexa Bliss
This match was nasty, disconnected, and awful, and there are no pleasant words to describe it. Bliss has been here before, working alongside the company's best wrestlers and wearing gold. She'd been in a lot of huge matches before and was definitely up for more than this. Eva, on the other hand, worked more slowly and with less assurance. As a result, viewers were never invested in a tumultuous contest. It's time to get rid of the Lilly things. While the concept of a doll winking and scaring mature men and women may sell products, it is so far outside the realm of reality that it has become laughably awful. Bliss is definitely invested in her role and is striving to make the tale work. It's simply that something isn't quite right. Eva Marie isn't ready, prepared, or competent enough for a pay-per-view singles bout, as she was exposed here. At this moment, a tag team bout with Doudrop would have been more appropriate for her. Who knows where Eva will go from here given that their partnership appears to be finished following this match.
United States championship match.
By distant the most excellent coordinate of the appear to this point, Sheamus vs. Cleric conveyed precisely what you anticipated: a hard-hitting, physical hoss battle that built on their past experiences. What made this way better is it took that defensive confront cover that has calculated so intensely into Sheamus' recent matches and paid it off within the shape of Cleric utilizing it against the winner. Ideally, tonight's coordinate spells the conclusion of its nearness in Sheamus' matches. Cleric was the proper fellow to run with here. He was inquired to create the hop to the most list, work with Awful Bunny at WrestleMania and take an interest within the zombie garbage that taken after three weeks afterward at WrestleMania Backfire. He excelled, earning the spotlight and a title opportunity. Now, he is the winner. It'll be curiously to see where he goes from here, exterior of the unavoidable rematches predetermined to require put within the coming weeks. Who is truly over sufficient within the midcard to challenge for his title? Has anyone been as consistently good as Sheamus has been over the last year while being spoken about as little as The Celtic Warrior? Over the last 18 months, he's been one of WWE's MVPs, a shining beacon in every environment and one of the few stars the business can depend on to produce in every match. Although the prospect of Sheamus as world champion may not be very enticing, he is the man who has earned yet another tremendous run with the championship.
Smackdown Tag Team titles.
The Usos and Mysterios have wrestled each other so regularly in later weeks that it would have been nearly justifiable on the off chance that this one fizzled to meet the quality of their past experiences
, but it did not. The champions and challengers conveyed another high-energy execution that captivated the swarm and had them tingling for the father and child to recapture the titles. They did not and whereas there was no bother today of disagreement among the challengers, the misfortune will likely include to the mounting disappointment that exists between Rey and Dominik. They are ordained to part, to have the uncommon father vs. Child confrontation. Misfortunes like this will fuel that fight. As great as this coordinate was, here is trusting both groups move on from each other since the elective of them wrestling however once more could be enticing reducing returns.
Smackdown Women's title.
Wasn't it fantastic to see her return, soaking in the adoration of the crowd? Without a question. With being stated, the company's treatment of Bianca Belair during her championship reign was egregious. After five months of building her up and portraying her as the future of women's wrestling in WWE, it tossed her out like trash. She wasn't shown as a peer or on the same. It was like disrespectful.
Jinder Mahal vs Drew McIntyre.
This could've been salvaged and used to promote Raw. There was nothing in it that made it deserving of being included in a pay-per-view package. Was professional wrestling totally acceptable? Fans, however, expect more from a card of this size. McIntyre's placement on the event is frustrating since he led the company through the epidemic, and now, in just his second large stadium performance back in front of fans, he's in a meaningless and boring bout that didn't benefit any of the men involved. It was just there, a place (and match) that no wrestler wants to be in.
Raw Women's Championship.
Charlotte Flair is the greatest in the world. We understand. Her choices are self-evident. When she consistently outperforms everyone and wins championship after championship, she undermines the legitimacy and efficacy of the division she rules. Instead of this strong, powerful lady and her challenges, it becomes "Flair and everyone else" at some point. It is a monarchy, and only a member of the royal family has a genuine chance of ascending to the throne. Even if she loses her title, it will only be for a short time because she will reclaim it, guaranteeing that no one has ever been more consistently at the top of the category than her. The booking is self-defeating, which appears to be the theme of tonight's program. A. S. H. Will never get over sufficient to be winner once more, at slightest not with this current contrivance, and Ripley has misplaced to Energy so regularly at this point that it is nearly inconceivable to assume a situation where she can be considered a solid challenger to The Ruler. At slightest for the predictable future. So where does that take off us? With Pizazz as winner and no one new to step up to her, the women's division on Monday evenings is around to enter a period of stagnancy that's the culminate representation of Crude as a entirety. But at slightest the coordinate was great.
Edge vs Seth Rollins.
The brain research and narrating inside this one were marvelous and driven to the finest coordinate of the appear, by far. Rollins relentlessly focusing on Edge's neck and trying to find the step after estimating it within the weeks driving into the appear was a decent touch, as was the Lobby of Famer scouting it and being prepared to counter each time. What begun as a slower-paced coordinate hit its walk with Edge's comeback and went full-throttle through the wrap up. The greatest takeaway is that the coordinate reflected the story. Edge told us Friday night that Rollins had infuriated him to the point that he had to reach profound down inside himself to discover a dull side. He spoken to that side with the Brood-inspired entrance, at that point built upon it with the brutal face-smashing that gave way to the match-ending accommodation. This feels exceptionally much like a fight that's not wrapped up. Rollins will come back, likely more driven and aggravated than ever some time recently, looking to vindicate the misfortune that took him encourage out of all inclusive title.
This was awful and completely uncovered Goldberg's shortcomings. It was as well long, inquired him to offer as well much and included a loathsome wrap up planned nearly only to set up a rematch no one is inquiring for in Saudi Arabia. That the swarm was totally against Goldberg, treating Lashley like a babyface indeed as he rag-dolled his adolescent child, did not offer assistance things. The thought of these two wrestling once more, notwithstanding of the setting, is anything but engaging and ought to be reexamined some time recently WWE oversees to strip anything persona is cleared out within the Goldberg character absent for great.
This was a emotional primary occasion executed to flawlessness by two experts of their create. Rules and Cena's timing of the near-falls was faultless. They took the fans in Vegas on a rollercoaster ride that cleared out them really persuaded either man might take off with the gold, in spite of WWE shoehorning in a stipulation late Friday. Rules winning was completely the proper call, in case as it were since his run as heel winner is uncommon in its fabulousness and there's still bounty of mileage cleared out on it. Then, fair when you're cleared out pondering what's another for The Head of the Table, Lesnar returns from his favorite tree stand, prepared to kick ass and win gold. That Heyman reaction though.
