I would have liked to have seen more Charlotte in the opener, but it was fine for what it was.
It was nice to see Graves get retribution against Victor for the attack. I look forward to seeing a future tag match with the belts on the line.
Ryan vs. Rusev was a lot better than I thought it would be. Rusev looks awesome when he hits that spinning heel kick. I’m glad Dawson now has a new “partner” after Garrett Dylan was released, because I’m not sure how Scott would be as a singles competitor.
I was also shocked by the many nearfalls in Zayn vs. Swagger. Good, drawn-out action. I was expecting Zayn to win, but with Bo kind of costing him the match, it was a good outcome to further their feud.
