Braun Strowman & Alexa Bliss vs. Becky Lynch & Sami Zayn
Alexa completely de-beasts Braun and it’s really cool. The real guy comes out a bit and, of course, we all know it’s there. Alexa also rules the roost adding to the fun. We get a bit more “face” from Sami too when he’s with Becky. As a match, this was pretty good. They told the story you’d imagine they’d tell. Sami was hilarious ducking and dodging Strowman – really the only thing he could do. Sami is a great cowardly heel and he played it to the hilt here. The sequence where he feigned trying to tag in with Becky was a riot. When he finally did start “catching these hands” from Braun, it was great!
I was expecting Braun to get the victory over Zayn but that’s not what happened at all. Alexa executing a beautiful Twisted Bliss on Becky from on top of Braun’s shoulders was fun and a nice way to end the match.
I also have to hand it to Bobby Roode and Charlotte Flair. Both were quite active in the comments section and that was fun to see. I found myself looking often in both places while they helped tell the story.
Backstage segment – Jimmy and Naomi & Goldust and Mandy Rose
Quick promos from both. I already knew Jimmy and Naomi would be fun together but Mandy and Goldust were too. Quick but fun.
In-ring segment – Alexa Bliss and Braun Strowman
Braun flirting with Alexa was too much fun. Bliss returned fire and it was really sweet. The crowd was all about it too!!! Very cute segment. This is the stuff that makes wrestling fun. While I love the athletic dance, there’s NOTHING wrong with some fun and this was just plain fun.
