Ring Area
The Social Outcasts are going to take Main Event viral. Adam Rose makes a motorcycle metaphor and decides that they all need biker jackets. Bo Dallas wants their name on them.


Match 1
Bo Dallas w/ Heath Slater, Adam Rose, Curtis Axel vs Darren Young
(referee: Mike Chioda)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Bo Dallas wins via pinfall by holding the ropes after countering a sunset flip
Time: 3:30

Match Thoughts
A quick, fun match. Bo Dallas was a lot of fun, and all of the Outcasts contributed. Young was good too, getting a nice move on Axel and Rose on the outside when they tried to interfere.


Match 2
Paige vs Naomi w/ Tamina
(referee: John Cone)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Naomi wins via submission with a headscissors crucifix choke
Time: 9:37 (1 break)

Match Thoughts
Very good match. Both women seemed to take each other lightly as it started, but as the match went along they got a lot more serious and the action got a lot more intense. They both looked equally good and fought hard. Their personalities really shone through as well, but not at the expense of the wrestling.

Match 3
Tyler Breeze vs Ryback
(referee: Chad Patton)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Ryback wins via pinfall after Shell Shock
Time: 3:38

Match Thoughts
An okay match. Tyler Breeze looked good, and Ryback looked like Ryback.


Match 4
Braun Strowman w/ Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper, Erick Rowan vs Fandango
(referee: Darrick Moore)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Braun Strowman wins via knockout with an arm triangle choke
Time: 1:52

Match Thoughts
Fandango tried to put up a good fight, but Strowman wouldn’t budge much. As usual. Not a great match.


Show Impressions
An okay show. The first half was really good. The second half was a little lacking.

Match of the Night
Paige vs Naomi
This match was really good. It would have contended for match of the night on either of the main shows.
