Philadelphia Street Fight: The Pride (Bobby Lashley, Angelo Dawkins & Montez Ford) vs The Final Testament (Karrion Kross, Akam & Rezar)

Honestly, I was not invested in the match. More of my focus was on Bubba Ray (with the glasses) and Snoop Dogg. Gotta love when Bobby Lashley, Angelo Dawkins & Montez Ford honored The Dudley Boyz. With a Philadelphia Street Fight gimmick, I was hoping for a little more. The final sequence where the table broke early was a bad botch, but The Pride did save the spot. Before Snoop Dogg left, he joked with Michael Cole and Pat Mcafee about getting high in the back. The match was nothing special and I felt like those not wrestling were the highlight. Grade: B

WWE Women’s Championship: Iyo Sky vs Bayley

Talk about WWE really dropping the ball when it comes to promoting a Royal Rumble winner with Bayley. We knew this match was coming, but that was a year ago as the stable somehow stayed intact until recently. For the most part, the crowd was dead until final few minutes. It was a good match, where Bayley won a title for the first time at WrestleMania and a great title reign by Iyo Sky concluded. It was surprising nobody interfered, which actually helped the match have a clean outcome. I cannot imagine these two are done with each other. Grade: B

United States Championship: Logan Paul vs Randy Orton vs Kevin Owens

It is always entraining to watch Logan Paul because he naturally talented and continues to improve. Being in there with veterans like Randy Orton and Kevin Owens can help the young man. A key element in the match was the brass knuckles. Also, having IShowSpeed (I know, who?) be under the Prime foam padding was not surprising as they did something similar last year. Another highlight reel RKO for Orton. WWE might elevate Logan Paul sooner than later. Grade: B+

LA Knight vs AJ Styles

Before we begin, I do not understand why fans cared about this match. Unfortunately, LA Knight winning the top prize seems unlikely and with Styles nearing retirement, I felt both deserved other opponents. Yes, I was too harsh as the match was fun because they skipped the feeling-out process and went right at. Personally, this was way better than I thought and Styles taking the loss was a bit surprising. This feud might continue for a few more months and I am not against the idea. I am curious were Styles is headed as he continues to lose. Grade: B+

Bloodline Rules Match for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship: Roman Reigns vs Cody Rhodes

Last year, it seemed certain Cody Rhodes would walk out champion and finish his story. Roman Reigns kept the gold and the unpredictable is why his title run works. You new The Bloodline was coming, but that was huge with Seth Rollins, John Cena, The Rock and Undertaker. What a WrestleMania moment, but it took away from the actual match. After all that, we knew Cody Rhodes would finish his story. Grade: A-

World Heavyweight Championship: Seth Rollins vs Drew McIntyre; Damien Priest Cashes-In Money In The Bank

First, wow; I actually thought Drew McIntyre won the title 3 seconds in with the Claymore. Heading into the match, the odds did not look good for Seth Rollins as his knee was re-injured last night in a grueling 45 minute affair. It was good opener, but I do not understand why it took so more Claymores. Seeing McIntyre get the win in-front of fans was years overdue, but then Damien Priest cashed-in Money In The Bank. Also, CM Punk on commentary was hilarious, yet it took attention away from the match. Priest is champion, with McIntyre, Rollins and eventually Punk in the hunt. Grade: A-
