Sasha Banks w/Tamina & Naomi vs. Becky Lynch
Loads of interference from Team B.A.D. Sasha with a backcracker into the Banks Statement and Becky taps.
Winner: Sasha Banks
Tom Phillips interviews Alberto Del Rio in the “social media lounge”. He said that MexAmerica is dead because it didn’t work. He said some mumbo jumbo about the League of Nations then stormed off upset at the questioning.
The last segment saw Sheamus presiding over a table with the rest of the League (Rusev, Barrett, Del Rio) with also Lana. This is their evil fortress. It was made like a comical villain meeting a la the Legion of Doom in Super Friends.
PPV proper begins!

Ryback vs. Rusev w/Lana
Short match. Lots of Lana getting involved. On the floor, Rusev pushes Ryback into Lana and Lana sells big. Ryback checks on her, but Rusev attacks. Back into the ring, some offense by Rusev and then and Rusev hooks in the Accolade for the clean tap.
Promo for Austin/Michaels podcast.

Jack Swagger vs. Alberto Del Rio (c)
Lots of chairs are set up all around the ring. Swagger gets a decent “We The People” chant along when he walked down. Match went back and forth. Del Rio tosses over a dozen chairs on Swagger on the floor, some pretty stiff. Back into the ring, more chair stuff leads to a chair pin. Winner: Del Rio
Del Rio's new finisher looks clunky and painful. Much like most of Swagger's matches. #WWETLC

Wyatt Family (Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper, Erick Rowann & Braun Strowman) vs. Rhyno, Tommy Dreamer & The Dudley Boyz
ECW chant! Rowan is the first eliminated, but then the Wyatts eliminate Rhyno to even it up. Rhyno goes to gore Bray but Bray hits Rhyno and Harper sends him thru the table. Dvon is sent thru the table next and it’s 3-1 with Bubba.

WWE Intercontinental Title
Kevin Owens (c) vs. Dean Ambrose
Owens cut a promo on the way to the ring cutting down Boston fans for being sports fans. This is the Kevin Owens Show, he says. Match goes back and forth. Spot about halfway through has Owens waiting for Ambrose to be counted out but Dean makes it back.
Back and forth and both guys float out of finishers, but Ambrose hits the Double Arm DDT for a 2 count when Owens gets his fingers on the bottom rope (but not really, and the crowd chanted bullshit). More back and forth and Owens goes for a Pop Up powerbomb. Ambrose counters into a huricanrana and grabs the legs for the pin. Winner and NEW IC Champ: Ambrose
Promos for new shows coming to the network. A new show called “Ride Along” with a hidden cam showing chatting in a car.

Charlotte (c) vs. Paige
Lots of interference by Ric Flair. At one point Ric pulled Charlotte off of Paige. The finish saw Charlotte remove the middle turnbuckle pad and then trip Paige headfirst into the exposed STEEEEEL. Charlotte rolls her up for the pin. Ric and Charlotte celebrate after, Ric upstaged her quite a bit. Winner: Charlotte
Backstage Becky is upset with Charlotte over the way she won. Ric then intercepts their pinky promise. He struts out
Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match
WWE World Heavyweight Title
Sheamus (c) vs. Roman Reigns
Pretty small reaction for both. The crowd is on both men to start. Dueling chant of We Want Cena and Cena Sucks. Both guys do not look happy. Match moves to the floor. Up to the stage and Roman sends Sheamus into a pack of stuff
Back to the ring and Sheamus controls. Lots of big moves. Match has been pretty solid. Roman powers out of a move and hits a one arm powerbomb onto a ladder in the ring. Table and chair spots. Sheamus up on Roman’s shoulders and Reigns falls backwards through a ladder setup across the ring and announce table.
Reigns finally gets up first from this and sets up a ladder in the ring. As he gets to the top, Sheamus is back up and stops Reigns. Stops him again. Reigns back down and hits Sheamus with a superman punch. Reigns to the top but Sheamus knocks the ladder over. Sheamus about to grab the title but Roman climbs up and does a jumping Superman punch sending Sheamus off the ladder and thru a table. Reigns about to win when Del Rio and Rusev run down and stop him. Rusev has Roman in the Accolade on the floor while Del Rio revives Sheamus. Reigns gets out of the Accolade then fights off Del Rio. Reigns runs and stops Sheamus from getting the title. Brogue Kick and Sheamus gets the title down. Winner: Sheamus
The League of Nations and Sheamus celebrate. Rusev and Del Rio hold Sheamus on their shoulders. Roman back in and spears them. He goes to leave but then gets a chair and goes back in the ring and hands out some chairshots. HHH and Stephanie come down to try to retore the peace. After an eternity, Reigns attacks HHH with a Superman Punch. Grabs a chair and attacks HHH with a chair repeatedly. Beatdown moves to the floor and Roman puts HHH through the Spanish Announce table with a powerbomb.
He goes to leave. Then runs back and hits a spear on HHH. Crowd is somewhat hot with some boos as we go off the air.
