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.

On the kickoff show, the Raw women’s team is already fighting themselves when Ruby Riott brings up Anvil’s sunglasses. Why did SmackDown pick Mandy Rose and not Nikki Cross?? Lame.

COUNRTY DOMINANCE VS. B’N’B
B’N’B are really fun together. If only they weren’t booked like shit separately. Renee talks about the “lack of disrespect from Bobby Lashley to Finn Bálor”. Ok. Bayley runs straight into a super kick from Mickie James that looked like it knocked a few teeth loose. Lio Rush rush screaming from Bálor, and ends up getting a Belly to Bayley. Mickie James wins with a DDT. Nothing too special about this one.
Match Rating: Three Gold Medals
DAY ONE GLOW VS. FABULOUS TRUTH
Naomi has horns. The was one of the worst rap battles in a long history of bad WWE rap battles. The match was just as bad.
Hell yeah! Truth TV! Dance break! And let’s pour some cold water on that boner with Stephanie McMahon and her horrendous entrance music… and what the balls is that dancing she’s doing? Odin almighty… just knock it off. But OH! HERE COMES THE MONEY! I just really don’t want this to turn into a two-hander for the McMahons. Well here comes Vince, and that’s exactly what this is. At least this was not a total McMahon family jerk off, it was a McMahon family dance break! I’m all for that. Great job.

TEAM B-N-B (FINN BALOR & BAYLEY) VS. MONSTER ECLIPSE (BRAUN STROWMAN & EMBER MOON
Ember Moon is one of my favorite wrestlers and she makes everyone she’s in the ring with better. Braun makes everyone he’s in the ring with cry. If Team B-N-B wins, it won’t be because Balor pins Strowman. Strowman is kicking the shit out of Balor, badly. The only hope Balor has is to get to Bayley, which he is finally able to do. Ember and Bayley are terrific against each other. Great, intense pace, back-and-forth action, and awesome moves. Bayley hits her Bayley to Belly finisher on Ember, but Braun pulls Ember out of the ring and makes the tag.

OPENING SEGMENT: PAIGE
Joe committed the most dastardly crime in WWE history? Do I need to make a list? Pillman’s Got a Gun? Katie Vick? MUHAMMAD FUCKING HASSAN?? I get it, gotta sell it. AJ’s promo was weird. I’m not sure how I feel about it. I didn’t want to like it at first, but it got better as it continued.

MIZTV WITH… R-TRUTH AND A BRUNETTE CARMELLA
I really love that R-Truth is becoming relevant, no matter how short-lived this may be. He’s still over as hell. Carmella is so talented that she’s gone from the most hated heel on SmackDown to a cheered face in less than a month. So this is now TruthTV? Rock on. I am greatly entertained by the new format, especially the seven-second dance break. It does not take much to make me happy.

IN-RING PROMO: JEFF HARDY
This Sunday Hardy will face the serpent in his favorite playground. Orton may be a demon but Hardy is a daredevil. He will make Orton OBSOLETE! Tonight he cleanses a demon from his past, Shinsuke Nakamura.

IN-RING SEGMENT: DANIEL BRYAN AND BOTCH BELLA
Great, more Bella bullshit. Let’s see if she botches her ring entrance and falls on her face. Also I would rather listen to Stephanie’s entrance music on an endless loop than hear that horrendous crap that she has. “After my tag match it’s clearer than ever that we don’t have to wait until Hell in a Cell.” Ok, I get that it’s scripted, but how can she say that with a straight face? Almas and Vega save us from having to hear her spew any more vomit, and we have a match.
