Asuka had her task doubled with the chance of double reward as she challenged both Sasha Banks and Bayley for their respective Women’s Championships. While in the Smackdown Women’s Championship match against Bayley she lost due to continuous distractions by Banks, against ‘The Boss’ she managed to avoid Bayley’s distractions and won back the Raw Women’s Championship by submission.

The only women’s match on the show not involving Asuka was a personal affair between Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose. In a match full of stipulations: No DQ ans Loser Leaves Town, Rose went on to win after a barrage of Running Knees, leaving Deville, who is fresh off a real-life kidnapping attempt, some time away from the WWE ring.

 

The Street Profits, fresh off the positioning attempt by Zelina Vega, went on to defend their Raw Tag Team Championship against Andrade and Angel Garza. After a near eight minute match, they managed to retain their titles.

Dominik Mysterio shined in his debut against ‘The Monday Night Messiah’ Seth Rollins. A match in which Mysterio’s parents, father Rey and mother Angie became involved in one way or the other, alongside the continuous distraction of Rollins’s disciple in Murphy, Dominik showed a lot of promise in debut, scoring a few near-falls, but in the end, ‘The Messiah’ got the victory.

The WWE Title And Universal Title Matches Were 50/50 Affairs

Drew McIntyre faced Randy Orton in a match for the former’s WWE Championship. In a 50/50 match with a lot of offense and counter-offense, McIntyre avoided a RKO before applying a backslide pin to retain his Championship.

 

The Falls Count Anywhere match for the WWE Universal Championship was a crazy affair. ‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt was unfazed by each and every attack thrown to him by ‘The Monster Among Men’. Finally, Strowman’s strategy to remove the padding on the floor to gain some advantage was returned to him by ‘The Fiend’, who hit the Sister Abigail for the victory. Roman Reigns returned after the match and attacked both Strowman and Wyatt to end the show.
