Drew McIntyre defeated The OC
- Drew McIntyre comes out and says he feels like he's been dreaming. Drew McIntyre has challenged Brock Lesnar to a WWE Title match at WrestleMania.
- Drew McIntyre makes an open challenge, and it's answered by Gallows & Anderson of the OC. Drew says he'll face both of them.
- Well, I guess if AJ is hurt, they don't have much use for a team they're spending $1.5 mil a year on.
- Drew McIntyre dominates both of them and wins with a Claymore. He throws both from the ring.
- Brock Lesnar hits the ring and lays out Drew with an F5. That's a level of desire we haven't seen out of Brock in a while.

- MVP is back on Raw.
- He gets "you still got it" chants from the crowd. He also gets a great Player's Boot.
- This one goes through a commercial after a huracanrana into the barricade on MVP.
- We get the Ballin' Elbow! I kinda wish he would have yelled Kobe for that one.
- Rey gets MVP's back on a 619 and hits a springboard frog splash to win. That was differently.
Aleister Black defeated Kenneth Johnson
- Lawler saying Black's entrance GIVES HIM THE WILLIES is lame.
- Either way, Black knocks out Cruiserweight Classic competitor Kenneth Johnson.
- He says that he's going after people since they won't come after him.
- Owens and Joe don't believe that Rollins and Murphy won't get help from AOP.
- Rollins puts up a video feel of AOP in their locker room. The Viking Raiders attack them, taking them out.
- Pretty standard action early on. Jerry Lawler is playing more of a heel, which is where he's best. Even though he's still not good there.
- Joe side steps a Murphy dive and throws him over the top rope. In stereo dives from Owens and Joe.
- Joe eats FLOOR on the dive and is forced to the back. Kevin Owens has to go it alone.
- Owens has some great nearfalls with a frog splash, pop up powerbomb and a Swanton.
- Owens hits a Stunner on Rollins, but Murphy rolls him up for the win.
- Becky Lynch says she's doubted herself for months, but last night made her realize that she's in a totally different league than everyone else. She says if Charlotte challenges her, it won't be the first time but it'll be the last time.

WWE United States Championship
Humberto Carrillo defeated Andrade (c) (w/ Zelina) by DQ
- Humberto Carrillo is a lot more aggressive starting out, but gets cut off.
- The action here is good as expected. Whether intended or not, I liked the hesitation springboard from Humberto.

- There are plenty here.
- He does a moonsault and Zelina breaks up the pinfall for the DQ.
- Carrillo goes off and Hammerlock DDTs Andrade on the floor. Humberto gets a good pop for this too

- She teases her announcement but says she's still deciding.
- The Kabuki Warriors come out and cut a promo. Asuka says she would have won if she was in the Royal Rumble.
- The two battle back and forth until they go to a commercial after a tumble outside.
- Charlotte gets a huge boot on Asuka. The crowd isn't much into this.
- The moonsault is truly Charlotte's Ric top rope spot.
- Asuka lcoks on
- I wouldn't mind Asuka losing to a top singles name here because she has tag titles to defend now. But it ends in a DQ when Kairi hits an Insane Elbow in the middle of a Figure Eight.

10- Perfect, 9- MOTY Territory, 8- Excellent, 7- Great, 6- Good, 5- Average to above average, 4- Slightly below average, 3 or below: Poor
Each match starts at a 5 and slides up and down based on entertainment, execution, time, environment, reaction and stakes. The ratings are in no way an indication of a "star rating," which is a completely different system. A standard, non-offensive "TV match" lands at a 5. The gap between 5.75-6 is generally the largest, with anything reaching 6 being recommended viewing.
These are opinions, and incredibly inconsistent ones that may change upon a second viewing, or sitting on the match for a period of time. Don't take them too seriously, and have (and share) your own!
