Kickoff Show

Rezar and Scott Dawson vs. Bobby Roode and Chad Gable
Roode and Gable won so, as of now, there is no tag title match for AOP or The Revival in the near future.

United States Championship
Rusev (Champion) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura
Nakamura won the United States Championship again. Late in the match, Lana got up on the ring apron and she got in Nakamura's face. Rusev charged at Nakamura but he moved and Rusev accidentally knocked Lana off the ring. The distraction allowed Nakamura to hit the running knee to the head and he got the pin.

WWE Cruiserweight Championship
Buddy Murphy (Champion) vs. Akira Tozawa vs. Hideo Itami vs. Kalisto
Lots of fast-paced action but the crowd wasn't into the match until the last couple of minutes. Murphy won with Murphy's Law on Itami to retain the title.

Main Card

SmackDown Women's Championship
Asuka (Champion) vs. Becky Lynch
Very good match. The finish had tons of submissions and counters into other submissions. Asuka won clean with the Asuka lock that turned into a bridge.

SmackDown Tag Team Championship
The Bar (Champions) vs. The Miz and Shane McMahon
This was a crazy match. Miz hit the Skull Crushing Finale on Sheamus and McMahon hit a shooting star press onto Cesaro for the win. New Champions.

48,193 fans in attendance, according to Michael Cole.

Raw Women's Championship
Ronda Rousey (Champion) vs. Sasha Banks
Late in the match, Banks tapped to the armbar but the tap didn't count because they were outside of the ring. Rousey hit several punch combinations but she was favoring her shoulder due to the damage done earlier by Banks. Banks was able to lock in the Banks statement while using part of her attire to wrap around Rousey's face. Banks then locked in the Fujiwara armbar but Rousey broke out and she countered into a gutwrench suplex. Rousey rolled through to get Banks on her shoulder. She hit Piper's Pit and pinned Banks to win the match.

Beth Phoenix was introduced as the special commentator for the Women's Royal Rumble match.

Lesnar was favoring his ribs after getting rammed into the corner of the announcer's table

Lesnar went for an F5 but Balor countered into a DDT and almost got the pin. Balor dove onto Lesnar at ringside once and then a second time. He followed up with third dive on Lesnar at ringside.

Lesnar attacked with German suplexes and the F5 after the match.
