I’m not even sure what to say about this show anymore. It comes and goes with a few interesting highlights and the rest is just a bunch of matches between the standard batch of regular people and then a cruiserweight tag. I could certainly go with a little change of pace but those are very few and far between around here. Let’s get to it.
Rhyno vs. Titus O’Neil
They start with the power exchange before a clothesline puts Titus on the floor. That’s fine with Titus who unloads on him with a right hand to the jaw, followed by his own clothesline for two inside. Another clothesline gets the same and it’s off to the chinlock. Rhyno comes back with some shoulders and a spinebuster for the pin at 5:29.
Result: Rhyno b. Titus O’Neil – Spinebuster (5:29)

Braun Strowman vs. Kalisto
It’s a dumpster match, which means you have to put them inside but don’t have to close the lid. Before the match, Braun says everyone here is trash and putting Kalisto in the dumpster will be like putting everyone in there too, including Roman Reigns. In the back, Kalisto tells Angle he has to fight like a man.
Kalisto starts with some kicks but his flip dive is caught in a suplex, only to have Strowman throw him across the ring. A front facelock over the ropes has Strowman in some trouble but he throws Kalisto down again. Strowman loads up a press slam but Kalisto slips out and dropkicks him into the dumpster for the win at 6:13.
Result: Kalisto b. Braun Strowman – Kalisto put Strowman in the dumpster (6:13)
Post match Strowman destroys Kalisto and puts him in the dumpster. He locks it shut and pushes the dumpster off the stage for what must have been a full two and a half foot fall.

Gran Metalik/Lince Dorado vs. Tony Nese/Drew Gulak
Nese and Dorado get things going with Tony’s strikes not having much effect, allowing Dorado to wristdrag him out of the corner. Drew will have none of Dorado’s high flying though and shoves him to the floor in a big crash. Back from a break and it’s off to Gulak legally now, meaning we hit the mat wrestling in the form of a leg crank. Not that it matters as Nese comes back in and gives up the hot tag to Metalik.
That means it’s time to hit the ropes in a variety of ways with Metalik taking over. A handspring takes Gulak down and a top rope elbow gives Metalik two. There’s the handspring Stunner from Dorado to put the villains on the floor, followed by double moonsaults from the top. Back in and the Metalik Driver ends Gulak at 10:28.
Result: Gran Metalik/Lince Dorado b. Tony Nese/Drew Gulak – Metalik Driver to Gulak (10:28)
And from Raw again.
Dean Ambrose/Chris Jericho vs. The Miz/???
And it’s…..someone who has some issues with being on time as he’s not here. Miz says the match is canceled and goes to leave but here’s Angle to say the match is on. Jericho takes off the replacement jacket and chops Miz in the corner, setting up some double teaming. Miz gets clotheslined out to the floor and we take a break.
The match is joined in progress with Miz still alone and Jericho’s arrogant cover getting one. Ambrose comes in and Miz begs off, earning himself a chase on the floor. Maryse offers a distraction though and Miz gets in a boot to the face to take over for the first time. Back in and the Reality Check gets two but the YES Kick is countered into a rollup. Jericho comes in with the Lionsault but the Codebreaker is blocked.
Miz goes to leave so Ambrose follows him up the ramp. Dirty Deeds is loaded up on the stage but here’s Bray Wyatt to knock Dean off. Sister Abigail sends Dean into the wall and a second one plants Jericho in the ring. Miz poses with Wyatt….and takes Sister Abigail as well. Bray kneels down to end the show and we’ll say the match was thrown out at about 8:30.
Result: Bray Wyatt/The Miz vs. Dean Ambrose/Chris Jericho went to a no contest (8:30)
