The evening begins with the RAW championship match. Bianca Belair takes on Becky Lynch to defend her belt, a year after Lynch squash Belair for the SmackDown title.
Bianca Belair beat Becky Lynch by falling with his KOD preceded by a beautiful spanish fly from the second rope to keep his title.
Good match, a little dragging in the first minutes but an effective opener afterwards. And we are not at the end of our surprises. Becky Lynch shakes hands with Bianca Belair after the match, before hugging her. But it doesn’t stop there: Bayley is back, is she Bianca Belair’s next challenger? No doubt, but it does not come alone. Bayley seems to be infatuated with Dakota Kai and Io Shirai who arrive in turn.
A face to face in the ring, the trio of Bayley, Kai and Shirai on one side, Lynch and Belair on the other. We almost believed in another return to join the clan of faces. It will be for next time.
Triple H is at work, no doubt possible tonight.
Back to action with the match between Logan Paul and the Miz. Miz, Maryse and Ciampa come in green. Green is bad luck on stage.
Logan Paul defeats The Miz by falling with a Skull Crushin Finale. Logan Paul’s performance is incredible, for a guy who’s just starting out. Tommaso Ciampa tried to intervene, the referee wanted to kick him out of the ringside but he didn’t want to leave, so AJ Styles came to take care of it.
We are tease of AJ Styles against Ciampa, all under the aegis of Triple H who obviously wants to turn everything around, it is very hot in Nashville.
The Mr Money In The Bank Theory, which has many plans later in the evening, is currently entering to try to take the title of United States Champion from Bobby Lashley. Theory hits Lashley with his briefcase before the match hoping to get the upper hand.
Bobby Lashley a beaten theory by submission with the Hurt Lock to retain the title of United States Champion.
The match is short, Theory even has the message to leave him because ultimately it has little interest compared to what he plans tonight, but Lashley came to bring him back into the ring.
We quickly move on with Judgment Day which enters in full with Rhea Ripley, for the match between Finn Bálor and Damian Priest against Mysterio. The match is without disqualification, everything is possible.
The Mysterios defeated Judgment Day by falling with a splash springboard from Rey Mysterio on Finn Bálor after a double 619, but especially after a (not really) surprise comeback from Edge.
Edge, after several weeks of teasing, returns to us after going to the hairdresser to take revenge for the attack suffered by his own clan. Edge speared Bálor and Priest to then allow Mysterio to wrap up the match.
Pat McAfee takes on Happy Corbin in the next match. Corbin has the right to a choir who sings him “Bum ass Corbin” before continuing on the theme song of McAfee – who no longer enters Seven Nation Army, it was just for WrestleMania.
Pat McAfee defeated Happy Corbin by falling with a Code Red.
A nice match but far from that of WrestleMania for McAfee in terms of quality. Michael Cole was involved when the action took place at the commentary table, getting knocked down (literally), then the referee was knocked out so McAfee could get revenge for the hit in SmackDown games with another blow in the parts.
Dr. McIntyre stopped by Nissan Stadium even though there was no game. He comes to tell us that he is happy to be in Nashville, looks back on his match against Sheamus at SmackDown this Friday from which he still suffers, but says he is delighted because he will be able to face the winner of the main event of this evening.
After a little interaction with a young fan in the audience, he says he’ll beat whoever emerges champion in tonight’s main event and asks the audience to kick off the count for the Claymore before raising the sword while fireworks are fired.
The Usos beat the Street Profits to remain tag team champions
Liv Morgan defeats Ronda Rousey to remain SmackDown Champion
Roman Reigns defeated Brock Lesnar remain WWE & Universal Champion
