MATCH #01 "WWE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP"
THE NEW DAY DEFEAT THE USOS
Who believe that Xavier Woods bringing it home?
We forgot about Kofi Kingston, stepping in for Xavier.
I was right, Xavier Woods bought it home. The New Day are back on top as champions.
Battleground, starting off with a good start.
Shinsuke Nakamura, finally going to get his shot to shine in a WWE pay per view. He haven't had the best of luck these past couple of months. I believe this man have something to do with it, Mr Money In The Bank, Baron Corbin. You know which, wrestler I ride for NAKAMURA NAKAMURA NAKAMURA NAKAMURA NAKAMURA NAKAMURA
SHINSUKE NAKAMURA DEFEAT BARON CORBIN BY DISQUALIFICATION
Blatant disqualification from Baron Corbin with a knee strike across Nakamura. Baron Corbin leaving the ring with a smile across his face.
Baron Corbin returning to the ring. Baron Corbin with a cheap shot using the briefcase into Nakamura's gut followed by the end of days maneuver.
It's time now for some glow, as we're joined by SDL Women's Champion, Naomi. Naomi, joining the commentary section for this match.
MATCH #03 "5 WAY ELIMINATION MATCH"
NATALYA DEFEATED BECKY LYNCH, TAMINA, LANA & CHARLOTTE
5 way elimination match, taking place right now. The last female in the ring standing will get an opportunity to face Naomi for the SDL Women's Championship @ Summerslam.
No one have been eliminated yet. I don't think these girls know the concept of an elimination match. Lana out here saving Charlotte, Tamina out here saving Lana. The match is any woman for themselves.
Becky Lynch eliminated Tamina, Becky Lynch eliminated Lana, Natalya eliminated Becky Lynch, It's down to just Charlotte and Natalya. Natalya eliminated Charlotte.
Next match is the opportunity for Kevin Owens to get back what he lost during Independence Day. Do anyone agree with Aj Styles and feel that Kevin Owens isn't the man to carry the United States Championship?
MATCH #04 "UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP"
KEVIN OWENS DEFEAT AJ STYLES
I like that, it have a nice ring to it, lol. AJ's TITLE, AJ's TITLE, AJ's TITLE, AJ's TITLE, AJ's TITLE, AJ's TITLE, AJ's TITLE, AJ's TITLE, AJ's TITLE, AJ's TITLE, AJ's TITLE, AJ's TITLE, AJ's TITLE, AJ's TITLE, AJ's TITLE.
I seen that Owens with the tights, cheap shot. Kevin Owens decide to go bowling, delivering the canonball. Ooh, a hit but a miss. Aj Styles have some tricks up his sleeves delivering the powerbomb. Kevin Owens with an armbreaker on Aj Styles. Aj Styles is thriving in pain. Aj Styles have the crabcrusher locked in on Kevin Owens. Kevin Owens tossed Aj Styles into the referee. It look like it was intentional. The referee have been taken out. These two going back and forth with pin covers. Kevin Owens, finally scored the pin over Aj.
I guess, Aj Styles was incorrect about Kevin Owens. It look like, he is the man to carry the United States Championship. Kevin Owens capturing the belt for its third time.
This next match is a match about pride. I don't have to say anything more. Just, pure pride between these two superstars, John Cena and Rusev. I'm not going to lie to you. I could care less about John Cena but in matches like this you have no choice but to route for Cena, smh. I don't want to see Bulgaria dominate the United States tonight.
MATCH #05 "FLAG MATCH"
JOHN CENA DEFEAT RUSEV
Cena unhook the American flag. He need to head up the ramp now and place it onto it's respectful podium. Rusev making sure that doesn't happen. Cena with the American flag halfway up the ramp. Rusev going for his Bulgarian flag. Rusev putting down his flag to finish off John Cena. Rusev took out John Cena. Rusev setting up a table. Rusev with the accolade on John Cena. John Cena passing out. Rusev going for the Bulgarian flag. John Cena with a hold on Rusev. Rusev with a kick. Rusev going for another attempt of the accolades onto Cena. Cena reversing it with the "A A" and planting Rusev through a table that Rusev had set up for Cena. Look like that came back and bit, Rusev in the ass. John Cena going for the American flag and placing it onto the podium.
Mike Kannellis making his WWE pay per view debut, tonight against Sami Zayn. Sami Zayn looking eager for tonight's match. He's seeking revenge from Tuesday night loss on SDL.
SAMI ZAYN DEFEAT MIKE KANNELLIS
Wow, Sami Zayn finally scored a victory. Does anyone know the last time he scored a victory, lol?
We finally come down to the main event. Randy Orton verses Jinder Mahal for the WWE World Championship. I'm not routing for Jinder Mahal in this match. In my opinion, this match is more about vengeance. Vengeance is something that Randy Orton seeks towards Jinder Mahal from the last pay per view (Money In The Bank). Randy Orton seeking retribution for his family. There is going to be alot of pain between the bamboo bars of the Punjabi prison.
MATCH #07 "PUNJABI PRISON MATCH"
JINDER MAHAL DEFEAT RANDY ORTON
I could barely see the match. There are so much bamboo being used as its structure.
Randy Orton had 0:20 seconds to get out the 4th door from the inner structure. The Singh Brothers making sure that doesn't happen. The Singh Brothers dragging out Jinder Mahal to the outer structure. While Randy Orton is stuck inside the inner structure. Randy Orton scaling that 20 foot cage to get himself out of the outer structure. Randy Orton trying to escape the Punjabi prison. Randy Orton being interupted by Samir Singh. Samir Singh found himself landing 15 feet through the commentary table. Randy Orton and Jinder Mahal still on the outer structure. Samil Singh still inside the outer structure. Randy Orton with a steel chair to the back of Samil Singh. Randy Orton going for the escape. I can not believe this. Well, executed plan Mahal. I bet no one seen that coming. We get ourselves a surprise visit tonight. The creator of the Punjabi Prison match, The Great Khali, coming out holding Randy Orton by his throat and shaking the cage. Giving, Jinder Mahal the opportunity to go for his victory.
