Lacey Evans & Dana Brooke defeated Bayley & Sasha Banks vs Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross

Lacey Evans & Dana Brooke picked up the win in triple threat action this week after dropping a match to Sasha Banks and Bayley last week. The win should put them in a good position to challenge the Kabuki Warriors next but the loss to Banks and Bayley from 2 weeks ago might mean they have more to prove before getting a title shot. WWE hasn’t announced the Kabuki Warriors’ next title defense yet.

A single’s match between Lacey Evans and Sasha Banks has been scheduled for next week.

Chad Gable defeated Dash Wilder

The former Olympian Chad Gable who is now referred to as Shorty G on Smackdown defeated Dash Wilder via submission this week. After the match, Scott Dawson hit the ring and the Revival commenced a 2-on-1 beat down on Gable. This led to the returning Sheamus making the save. Just as he did so, however, he delivered a big boot to Gable’s face.

Kofi Kingston defeated The Miz

The Miz is showing the emotional effects of Bray Wyatt’s stalking of his family. Kofi Kingston defeated him in singles action this week and then after the match, The Miz attacked Kofi from behind. Miz then walked up the entrance ramp and proceeded to have an argument with the entire live audience. Later in the show, Cathy Kelly attempted to interview Miz but when she knocked on his door, Miz’s former tag partner John Morrison answered and said Miz would not be coming out.

Otis defeated Drew Gulak

Otis from Heavy Machinery defeated Drew Gulak in singles competition this week. Before the match began, Gulack attempted to give a PowerPoint presentation on all the reasons why Mandy Rose won’t go out with Otis. Dolph Ziggler was shown in the back talking to Mandy Rose as well during the match.

Braun Strowman defeated Cesaro

Braun Strowman continued his rivalry with Sami Zayn’s faction this week. Strowman defeated Cesaro in singles action but was attacked by Shinsuke Nakamura after the match. Strowman pinned Nakamura and tag action previously. One has to wonder if Strowman is possibly in line for a shot at Nakamura’s Intercontinental championship.

Roman Reigns & Daniel Bryan vs King Corbin & Dolph Ziggler -No Contest

In the night’s main event, Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns teamed up to take on Dolph Ziggler and King Corbin. Just when it looked as though Bryan had the match under control, the lights went out and he was attacked by Bray Wyatt. When the lights came back on, the Fiend was gone, Daniel Bryan was taken out of the match which allowed Ziegler and Corbin to double-team Roman. They were attempting to handcuff Reigns to the ring ropes and possibly feed him dog food when Jimmy and Jey Uso made the save to close the show.
