Commentary: Renee Young, Vic Joseph
Ring Announcer: Mike Rome
Kayla Braxton and Vic Joseph talk about tonight’s matches.
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.
Last month, Dasha Fuentes asked Country Dominance what their secret to victory is. Lashley says it’s having a good partner. Lio Rush says that they came here to win, and that’s no secret.
B’n’B says Bobby Lashley smells like defeat.
Fabulous Truth joins Kalya and Vic. They issue a challenge to Day One Glow for tonight, the first-ever rap battle on Mixed Match Challenge. Then they dance.
Mickie James & Bobby Lashley w/ Lio Rush vs Bayley & Finn Balor
(referee: Darrick Moore)
Result: Mickie James pins Bayley after the Mickie-DT
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.
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.
Jimmy Uso & Naomi vs Carmella & R-Truth
(referee: Danilo Anfibio)
Result: Naomi pins Carmella after a knee strike
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.
Fenomenal Flair are confident in their chances against Awe-Ska.
Awe-Ska wonders if Fenomenal Flair REALLY thinks they can win.
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.
