Brute Crushes Lucha Dragon
In our second match of the night from Newark, we are getting the United States title match between Kalisto and Rusev.
Early on, it was just a continuation from RAW, with Rusev abusing Kalisto’s injured back. In the early going, there was very little Kalisto could do but absorb the punishment. It wasn’t until mid-match where Kalisto began to get some reversals in, and getting the momentum to tilt in his direction.
Kalisto hit a couple high risk maneuvers which paid off, but went for a third of the top rope, which Rusev met and slammed Kalisto spine first onto the apron. The officials were checking on Kalisto for an injury, at which point Rusev jumped in and slapped in the Accolade-so much so that Rusev was on his own back, getting a quick tap-out from the now former champion.
Your winner, and now 2-time US Champion, is Rusev.
New Day Has The Numbers
New Day are out. Xaiver Woods plugs his Twitter and asks for private videos. Big E has two shovels to bury some hoes. Woods and Big E representing the team. No gimmick attached.
After some five minutes, Woods gets Big E in. Lots of slams from Big E as â€śNew Day Rocksâ€ť chants start. Kofi with outside interfere to retain their belts over The Vaudevillains.
Miz Wins in Instant Classic
It’s time for the much-hyped, greatly anticipated fatal fourway match for the Intercontinental Championship.
And man did it get off to an explosive start, as right out of the gate Sami Zayn took Kevin Owens out with a gnarly Helluva kick, and Miz was sent flying by a Cesaro uppercut.
Much of the early match was spent as a one on one affair with Zayn and Cesaro working each other over. Miz eventually made a comeback to make things interesting, and just as we thought we might get an incredible corner spot, Owens recovered and singled out Sami.
Ultimately, I pity those doing play by play because once all four got involved, this pace was intense, high spot followed high spot, and no one was separating from the pack. We started to get near fall after near fall, including Miz tapping out to Cesaro, but Maryse had the official distracted.
In the end, Zayn appeared to have Cesaro laid out and pinned. Owens pulled Zayn out, and Sami snapped, flinging Owens all over the place. But while he was doing that, Miz snuck in and pinned Cesaro for the win, and the unlikely retention.
Dean Ambrose Wins First Asylum Match
Time for the first Asylum match. There are weapons hanging everywhere and the cage is locked with a chain.
They use a mob, including spots that the mop is used. They have numchucks, which Dean knows how to use. A fire extinguisher and strap were also used. Off the cage, Ambrose with the elbow drop. Ambrose pulls the bucket down and has tacks inside. They trade spots over the tacks.
Ambrose counters the codebreaker by dropping Jericho into the tacks. Jericho is covered. Dirty deeds from Dean for the win.
Flair Uses Plan B to Retain
It’s time for the women’s championship match, which now sees Ric Flair banned from ringside, and it can only be won by submission. Considering that the names Flair and Hart go hand in hand with two of the better known submissions in the business, this fits the legacy to a “t”.
The ladies were going at things fast and furious, with each trying to take away the other’s submissionÂ maneuvers. Early on, things looked really bad for Charlotte, as Natty was getting in her shots.
Just as it looked like Natalya was going to get Charlotte to tap out, Ric Flair’s music hit, and out came plan B, as in Dana Brooke. And with that, Charlotte had the distraction she needed to get Natalya in the Figure 8, and Natalya had no choice but to tap.
Roman Reigns Still WWE Champion
They fought around the arena, which saw Styles go through two tables. The Club and Usos got involved. In the end, Reigns won with a spear. Post-match, Seth Rollins returned and hit Reigns with the pedigree.
