Luke Harper defeated Jimmy Uso
Harper hits a dropkick to get things going. Jimmy kicks Harper and both men exchange blows to the body. Harper hits a massive clothesline and picks up the win for Jimmy.
Well, this was way too quick. I did not like the fact that WWE only gave them about 2-3 minutes of television time before their big championship match. Jey challenges Rowan to a match afterwards. Even though this was a nice transition into another match, they could have given the ring action between Harper and Jimmy at least 7-10 minutes. What is accomplished here?
Jey Uso defeated Erick Rowan
Back from the break and we get Rowan catching Jey in mid air and hitting a fallaway slam. Rowan hangs up Jey in the ropes and then chops away at his chest. Rowan misses a big shoulder block and Harper is taken out on the outside. Jey hits a splash from the top of the rope and Jey picks up the win.
Again, they give two matches a total of 6 minutes. They teased us a little bit, but not enough to really be interested completely. Thankfully, the card will not have too many matches and this will be a good one on Sunday. I just wanted a little more aggression and intensity between two teams who seem to be feuding for a long time. The Wyatt's stand tall to end the segment, taking out Jey Uso in the middle of the ring. They hammer away at Jimmy and a massive clothesline from Harper.
On a side note, their music doesn't really make sense. "The Whole World" played on an organ or some odd sound is what they came out to. Isn't that song about John Cena specifically? The best part of the segment was Bray Wyatt coming on the screen and saying that he is proud of them. This saved the segment for being just average. He is the main spotlight and they brought him in to shine a bigger spotlight onto his brothers.
Naomi defeated Alicia Fox
Fox hits a side slam and dumps Naomi to the outside. I was more annoyed with Cameron on the mic than anything else. She is not entertaining to me. Naomi picks up Alicia Fox and hits her finisher.
Let's be honest here: Naomi could be champion if she did not get hurt. Hopefully, they let Paige be more of a heel than a face. She looks like a face and Naomi can pander to the crowd. I would be on board for this switch. It makes no sense for the "Anti-Diva" to be a cheerful champion with the crowd. It makes all the sense in the world for Naomi to be the face here.
Bo Dallas defeated Titus O'Neil
Dallas talks about how Titus fell off his horse on Smackdown and got right back on. He says he proved to everyone that winning is not everything. Dallas hits a dropkick, but O'Neil hits several backbreakers to end up tossing him to the ground. Titus smacks Bo in the chest and then pounds away at him in the corner. Dallas hits a Bo-Dog out of nowhere and picks up the win.
Although I have no idea whether to cheer him or boo him, Dallas is beginning to grow on me. His personality and his cheesy words are interesting to me. The music and the victory lap could catch on. Do you make Bo a face or heel? Time will tell, but it seems like the crowd is only going cheer him and root him on from here on out. It's catchy and fun to the live crowds.
