Jeff Hardy vs. Cesaro
This was a hard-hitting back-and-forth match. Late in the match, Hardy countered an attempt at a gutwrench suplex off the top and ended up doing a Whisper in the Wind onto Cesaro for a near fall. Hardy was also able to hit the Twist of Fate but Cesaro kicked out before the 3-count. The microphone picked up the ref giving Hardy a time cue as Cesaro took over on offense with a gutwrench suplex off the top. The match spilled to ringside as Cesaro kept favoring his knee. Jeff shoved Cesaro’s knee into the steps and then leaped off the barricade with a clothesline. Jeff finally hit the Swanton off the top to get the pin and the win. Michael Cole said this is “win number 1” on the comeback trail for Hardy, completely ignoring that Jeff beat Baron Corbin in March.
SmackDown Tag Team Championship – Fatal 4-Way
The New Day vs. The Miz & John Morrison vs. The Forgotten Sons vs. Lucha House Party
This match got off to a crazy start. In the first few minutes, Morrison hit a Spanish fly on Dorado and they both crashed on the rest of the wrestlers who were positioned at ringside.
The match continued with tons of near falls and kick-outs from finishing moves as it was clear that they wanted to get this show off to a hot start in the empty building. About 15 minutes into the match, Ryker was kicked out by the referee for interfering even though Fatal 4-Way Matches stipulate that there are no disqualifications. Big E won the match by hitting the big ending on Dorado.
They showed a Lacey Evans promo filmed “earlier today” at WWE Headquarters. She says she has memorized the entire layout of the building and she will capture the briefcase later tonight.
Backstage at the PC, Charly Caruso interviewed Drew McIntyre.
R-Truth vs. MVP
Before the match got started, Truth did his usual promo work prompting for “what’s up” chants even though the building was empty. During MVP’s entrance, he took offense to Truth trying to mimick him and trying to teach him “how to ball.” Bobby Lashley’s music played and he made his way to the ring, for some reason. Lashley told MVP he could take the night off and he would take the match against Truth.
This was basically a squash match as Lashley hit a few power moves and then hit the spear for the win. Truth didn’t get more than a couple of seconds of offense.
Promo from Baron Corbin from “earlier today.”
Kayley Braxton interviewed Bayley backstage at the PC. Bayley did not let Sasha talk when she was asked if she blames Bayley for her loss last week on SmackDown.
WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship
Bayley vs. Tamina
Bayley got a lot of offense in for the first several minutes but Tamina got fired up after getting hit in the face with water from a water bottle taken from the announcers. Tamina then tossed Bayley over the announcer stable before bringing her in the ring and attempting a splash. Bayley countered the splash but Tamina kicked her and then hit the Samoan Drop but instead of trying to pin Bayley, Tamina chased Banks. That was enough for Bayley to recover and pin Tamina. Tamina tried to attack Bayley after the match but Sasha saved her best friend.

Braun Strowman vs. Bray Wyatt
Bray made his entrance as the Mr. Rogers version of his character with the sweater and smile on his face. They started out with a regular lock up but Braun overpowered Bray at the start. After a couple of minutes, Braun charged at Bray at ringside but Bray moved out of the way and Braun crashed over the announcers table. Huskus the Pig appeared behind the barricade and he cheered Bray.
Back at ringside, Bray rammed Braun into the steel steps and then he brought him back into the ring. Bray hit a tornado DDT off the middle rope and then Sister Abigail but Braun was barely able to kick out. Bray tried to hit Sister Abigail but Braun countered into a chokeslam. The action spilled out to ringside again and Braun barreled into Bray and sent him into the barricade.
Bray made it back into the ring. Braun put on his old Wyatt Family mask and walked into the ring. Braun and Bray hugged as Bray’s puppets celebrated at ringside. However, it was a swerve because Braun took the mask off and then powerslammed Bray to pin him and win the match.

Drew finally turned the tables when he caught Rollins on a dive through the ropes and then launched him into the announcer’s table. Drew was favoring his left leg and Seth took advantage of that.

Seth got desperate so he brought a chair into the ring but h tossed it and then went for the stomp but Drew countered into the Glasgow Kiss. Drew went for a move off the top but Seth cut him off. Rollins hit a superplex and then a Falcon Arrow but Drew kicked out of the pin attempt.
