WWE CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: CEDRIC ALEXANDER VS. BUDDY MURPHY (c)
Fun action early with both guys showing the crowd what they’re in for with dueling displays of athleticism. An appreciative “205” chant breaks out. Tremendously quick pace and great chain wrestling by both guys. If you’re not watching this show, START! You can watch ANY TIME on demand! And it’s only an hour! Much less demanding than Raw or SmackDown, and lately it’s been much better TV.

TEAM MAHALICIA w/THE SINGH BROTHERS VS. MONSTER ECLIPSE
Strowman bowls over Mahal until Jinder tags in Alicia Fox, who is not happy to face Ember Moon. Alicia runs the ropes… for about 30 seconds straight. She takes a water break but turns straight into an Ember Moon dropkick. The Singh Brothers distract Ember and Alicia takes advantage with a neck breaker.

It’s still hard to watch Joe Anoai’s announcement from last week. It puts a lump in my throat every time I see it.

In a huge blow to an already underwhelming Evolution card, Alexa Bliss has been replaced by Alicia Fox due to injury. Strangely the WWE is still calling the match “past vs. present”. Hopefully Alexa will be back soon, and it’s certainly unfortunate for her to miss this event.
OPENING SEGMENT: BRAUN STROWMAN, DREW McINTYRE, & DOLPH ZIGGLER
The heels run down the Shield, talk about who is going to win the WWE World Cup, then are interrupted by The Shi…. nope, Roman and Seth. Seth calls himself the best in the world. He did that this past week and asked said he wanted a match against Kenny Omega. Omega and Tommaso Ciampa responded. I’m all for that mess of humanity. Rollins gets some cheap Philly pops. None of the promos were that good or that long. I wasn’t a huge fan of this opening. I think it’s because this feud has been stale and boring.

IN-RING PROMO: TRIPLE H & SHAWN MICHAELS
One of the best promos I can remember from two of the best in the business. This gave me chills.

TEAM B’N’B (FINN BALOR & BAYLEY) VS. TEAM MAHALICIA (JINDER MAHAL & ALICIA FOX) w/SUNIL SINGH
Alicia Fox takes care of the comedy early before Balor and Mahal put on a good show. Sunil Singh catches Bayley and asks if she want to “Bollywood Dance”. I used to work on an inpatient psych unit, so I feel like I’m qualified to say that Alicia Fox deserves to be in there more than most of the patients I observed.
