This whole thing was too long and not good.
Rey Misterio was interviewed backstage. He said Velasquez was banged up but he will survive against Brock Lesnar because he survived and so has Dominick. Rey said he will continue to seek revenge for Dominick.
Cesaro vs. Mansoor
Mansoor got the pin in the best match on the show so far by a mile after a moonsault.
This was a good mix of fast pace, high flying and hard hitting action. Lots of near falls between the two as well. Cesaro hit a gut wrench suplex and a upper cut. Monsoor connected with a springboard neck breaker. The finish came as Cesaro was going for another gut wrench suplex off the top rope but Monsoor turned it into a sunset bomb then the moonsault.
Monsoor was interviewed in the ring after. He spoke in English and said he was scared and nervous to perform in front of family and friends but all things were possible because of them. He said it was the greatest win of his life.
Seth Rollins was interviewed backstage and said when he burned the Firefly Funhouse down part of him actually enjoyed it and it took a piece of him. He said he will continue to do what needs to be done against The Fiend tonight.
Tyson Fury vs. Braun Strowman
Fury got a big entrance with fire and fireworks. He came out to “It’s Your Thing” by the legendary Isley Brothers as his theme music.
Fury won by count out after knocking Strowman out with a right hand punch when Strowman tried to get back in the ring. This went a lot longer than Lesnar vs. Velasquez.
After the match, Strowman gave Fury the powerslam but it virtually had no effect as Fury got right up and stomped around the ring looking mad.
Backstage, R-Truth was cornered by The Singh Brothers. He tried to run away but ran into a door. Sumire then pinned him to win the title.
US Champion AJ Styles vs. Humberto Carillo
The OC accompanied Styles and had the Tag Team Gauntlet trophy with them.
Styles got the pin after the Phenomenal Forearm. The crowd was absolutely dead for it.
Carillo did a bit where it looked like he hurt his knee after doing a backflip over Styles. Styles applied the calf crusher but Carillo made it to the rope to break the hold. Carillo went for a moonsault and landed on his feet to further hurt himself to lead to the finish.
Byron Saxton interviewed Hulk Hogan backstage. Hogan said Saxton’s new name is Beautiful Byron. He said he’s battled Ric. Flair for 35 years and it’s time to end it once and for all. He said his team has been training there in the desert. A classic Hogan promo.
Natalia vs. Lacey Evans
Nattie was out first. Both women are basically in bodysuits with their WWE logo t-shirts over them.
The crowd kept chanting “this is awesome” and “this is Wrestling”.
Natalia got the win with the Sharpshooter Submission.
Natalia raised Evans’ hand after and they hugged in the ring. Evans was very emotional and broke down crying. She blew a kiss of thanks to the crowd. They took time to take pics with the crowd.
Team Flair (Bobby Lashley, Shinsuke Nakamura, Drew McIntyre, Baron Corbin and Randy Orton) vs. Team Hogan (Ricochet, Rusev, Chad Gable, Ali, and Roman Reigns)
Byron Saxton joined commentary with Michael Cole and Corey Graves. Lana came out with Lashley to the stage but didn’t go to ringside. Jimmy Hart came out with Hogan.
Roman Reigns pinned Randy Orton after the spear.
WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins vs. The Fiend
Rollins was out first so The Fiend could have his horror movie entrance. WWE doesn’t learn as the ring is once again in the annoying red lighting making it hard to see. The crowd keeps chanting “Yowee Wowee”.
The Fiend won the title in another corny ending between the two.
Rollins kicked him off the stage down into a bunch of equipment and big sparks flew up. Rollins went down to the floor to clear the equipment boxes away but more sparks flew up and blinded him. He shouted “Oww my eyes!”
The Fiend popped up from behind and applied the mandible claw and followed up with Sister Abigale for the pin on the floor.
The crowd didn’t react to much after the first few minutes because they mostly brawled around ringside and it was hard to see with the stupid lights.
