Last month, Kayla Braxton asked Day One Glow about their tournament victory. Jimmy Uso doesn’t seem concerned, but Naomi wants to keep their roll going.

Naomi intends to snatch Carmella bald, and Jimmy Uso is going to get R-Truth so that he’s got.

Match 1
Mickie James & Bobby Lashley w/ Lio Rush vs Bayley & Finn Balor
(referee: Darrick Moore)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Mickie James pins Bayley after the Mickie-DT
Time: 8:09

Match Thoughts
Good match. After some posing from Lashley in the beginning, this match was fought mostly seriously. Bayley and Mickie had a nice sequence in the ring, then things broke down. Lashley and Balor fought all over the place, and Lio Rush inserted himself as a distraction for both Balor and Bayley. I was disappointed with the outcome, but I enjoyed the match.

 

Backstage
Kayla Braxton asks Country Dominance about facing Monster Eclipse next week. Mickie isn’t worried, so neither is Bobby. Rush reiterates that his team dominates every week. Dominate. Win. Collect. That’s the formula for success.

Jimmy Uso walks by on his way to the ring and says something about being lit.

 

Match 2
Jimmy Uso & Naomi vs Carmella & R-Truth
(referee: Danilo Anfibio)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Naomi pins Carmella after a knee strike
Time: 5:03

Match Thoughts
This was pretty fun. I was hoping Jimmy Uso would let loose in the rap battle, but the dance break was fun. After that, there wasn’t much match left. Carmella and Naomi briefly batled, but it was over pretty quickly.

 

Backstage
Fenomenal Flair are confident in their chances against Awe-Ska.

Backstage
Awe-Ska wonders if Fenomenal Flair REALLY thinks they can win.

 

Show Impressions
This was another fun show, though both matches seemed to have a little less to them than usual. Regardless, I was entertained.

Match of the Night
Country Dominance vs B’n’B
Despite the outcome, this was easily the better and more satisfying match of the night.
