More from Wrestle Newz

The pre-show begins with the 205 Live brand doing their thing. Plenty of high flying moves, with Buddy Murphy relying on the size advantage. Tozawa takes some tough bumps on the outside, with the spot of the match being seeing massive hurricanrana off the turnbuckle that lands for the challenger. Murphy’s Law is enough for the title to stay put.


Winner: Buddy Murphy to remain Cruiserweight Champion

Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville will start the match with Sasha Banks & Bayley. Next out are Liv Morgan & Sarah Logan. Banks gets her arm slammed into a pod and Bayley appears to be doing this solo. Doomsday suplex off the turnbuckle, with Bayley taking the worst of the bump. The IIconics enter and try to sneak in several pins. Carmella & Naomi are now out of their pod as the crowd chants “Corey Graves.” Everybody hits some spots and all 10 women are down. The IIconics use a double pin to get rid of Naomi. Nia Jax & Tamina enter and starting tossing everyone. The IIconics hide in a pod, but Nia & Tamina pull them out and nail double Samoan drops and they’re gone. Liv and Logan climb atop a pod and jump off. Back in the ring, Tamina gets a splash off the top rope and pins both Liv & Logan.
