2 out of 3 Falls Match- Bobby Roode vs Dolph Ziggler
A match weeks in the making saw Dolph Ziggler and Bobby Roode square off in a 2-out-of-3 Falls match.
The Showoff struck first, delivering a superkick that knocked the former NXTchampion out just long enough to secure the victory.
Roode evened the odds shortly thereafter, though, tossing Ziggler face-first into the steel post and rolling him up for the victory. That fall, the second of the match, occurred during the commercial break.
With the scorecard knotted at one apiece, the Superstars engaged in a series of near-falls, including a callback to previous matches that saw the tugging of tights. In the end, Roode was able to deliver the Glorious DDT and pick up the victory.
Result- Bobbe Roode wins.
Sin Cara vs. Baron Corbin
After scoring victories via count-out and disqualification, Sin Cara looked to make it three in a row against United States champion Baron Corbin Tuesday night.
Moments into the match, Corbin broke a lockup by grabbing at the mask of his opponent. The luchador escaped that but ate a big boot to the face.
Corbin, at every turn, cut Sin Cara off, keeping the speedy competitor from mounting anything remotely close to a flurry of offense.
The fight spilled to the outside late, where Sin Cara lifted the commentary chair overhead and tossed it at Corbin. The champion escaped through the crowd as the newer, more intense and driven Sin Cara stood tall.
Result- Baron Corbin defeated Sin Cara via disqualification.
Jinder Mahal Promo and AJ Styles vs. Samir Singh
WWE champion Jinder Mahal hit the ring for a promo. The Maharaja was not at all lacking in confidence as he vowed to defeat universal champion Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series.
Mahal said there was nothing to fear tonight because Samir Singh would defeat AJ Styles. He ended by speaking in Punjabi until Styles’ music played and The Phenomenal One made his way to the squared circle.
Singh made the mistake of slapping Styles at the top of the match and paid for it as he was tossed around the squared circle and flattened with the Styles Clash, which delivered Styles the victory.
Immediately after the match, Mahal and Sunil Singh attacked, laying into Styles and thriving based on the vaunted numbers game that has benefited The Maharaja so often during his title reign. The segment ended with Mahal’s delivering three straight Khallases to his top contender.
Result– AJ Styles defeated Samir Singh.
Big E vs. Rusev
Rusev and Aiden English looked to celebrate Rusev Day Tuesday, squaring off with The New Day’s Big E.
The match, a sprint between two of the better powerhouses in WWE, started with Big E in firm control. Unfortunately for the former tag team and intercontinental champion, The Bulgarian Brute sent his opponent into the steel post, turning the tide in his favor.
Big E halted Rusev’s onslaught moments later with a uranage suplex, only for English to stand atop the announce table and provide a distraction. Kofi Kingston chased after English, who rolled in the ring. The referee turned his attention to Kingston, while Big E planted English with the Big Ending. The momentary distraction allowed Rusev to blast E with a superkick for the win.
Result– Rusev defeated Big E.
Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Kevin Owens
With a spot on Team SmackDown up for grabs, Kevin Owens sought to defeat Shinsuke Nakamura and set in motion an evil plan to guide the blue brand to victory and force Shane McMahon to owe them a favor.
Nakamura rocked Owens with a dropkick early, but The Prizefighter took over heading out of the commercial break. KO wore Nakamura down, applying a chinlock and keeping him grounded.
Owens cut Nakamura off at every turn, but his frustration grew with every failed attempt to keep The Artist down.
Nakamura fought back, but before he could get on a roll, Sami Zayn appeared and Owens took advantage of a distracted opponent with a roll-up. Owens even managed a big frog splash but still only mustered a count of two.
Moments after Owens ordered Zayn to clear off the commentary table, Randy Orton’s music played and The Viper made his presence felt, dropping Zayn on the table.
Inside, Nakamura won the match with the Kinshasa.
Result– Shinsuke Nakamura defeated Kevin Owens.
