A full recap of the event plus tons of exclusive pics!

Fandango def. Tyler Breeze in a dark match before Main Event. The crowd exploded when they heard Breeze’s music.

Bray Wyatt interrupted the Smackdown titles with a promo on Ryback (I Think, was hard to hear.)

We started off with Ambrose coming down to discuss the melee (and how much he liked it) before calling Roman down to not apologize to him.

They teased a handshake from Roman to Ambrose before Kane came out. More bickering before he announced Ambrose vs. Sheamus. Right NOW.

Before that, Rusev comes out. LOUD USA chants as Lana apologizes to Russia and Rusev for her participation in Fandango dancing.

Bonus hilarity: The flag pyro made the guard next to me jump.

Rollins vs. Ryback was next, but Wyatt attacked Ryback on his way in. Long sitting period as Ryback recovers. Little girl asks her mom…

…if they can go home because it is boring now. I sympathize. Then participate in a Jamie Noble chant that breaks out.

Ryback is then defeated by Rollins. Crowd was solidly behind Ryback. Many Feed me. Much more. Wow.
