Rowan & Daniel Bryan (SD Tag Champs) vs The Usos
(referee: Jason Ayers)
Result: Jimmy Uso pins Daniel Bryan after a double Samoan splash
Good match. The main goal for Jimmy and Jey seemed to be trying to solve the problem of Rowan. They kept working on Rowan (and taking a lot of damage while doing so) and eventually began to see some results. Daniel Bryan was of course always dangerous as well, and he started to take control late in the match. It was an uphill batle for The Usos, and it was fun to watch.
Sam Roberts rejoins the panel (replacing Sonya Deville) as they go over tonight’s matches again.
A look at the feud between Styles and Rollins.
The panel discusses the Universal Title match.
