1st Segment - New WWE Champion Bray Wyatt makes his way to the ring. Randy’s not accompanying him. Crowd’s serenading him with *“You deserve it!” chants. He’s talking about Sister Abigail. Now he’s getting “What!” chants. Make your minds up, people. He said she always spoke truth, and so does he. He welcomes us all to the era of Wyatt. John Cena interrupts. He congratulates Wyatt on his win and leads the crowd into “You deserve it” chants. Reminds him they have a rematch for the title. Cena wants it now. AJ Styles interrupts. AJ wants his rematch before Cena. He says Cena’s not normal. Says it’s about AJ Styles. GM Daniel Bryan is her now. He congratulates Bray on his win. Bryan makes a Triple threat match between AJ Styles, John Cena, and Bray Wyatt for the title tonight.

Dean Ambrose walking around backstage looking for Baron Corbin.

2nd Segment - American Alpha vs The Ascension: Good back and forth action. Thought Ascension had the win with their finisher, but Gable kicked out. AA hit their finisher on Viktor for the win.

Usos appear onscreen. They tell AA to watch their back.

3rd Segment - Ellsworth and Carmella chatting backstage when Ambrose shows up. He tells Ellsworth Carmella’s just using him. Daniel Bryan shows up. Ambrose asks for a match against Ellsworth, and Bryan says yes as Ambrose and Ellsworth have unfinished business.

James Ellsworth vs Dean Ambrose: Carmella and James Ellsworth are in the ring. He tells the crowd not to boo her. Says he’s her only beau. Ambrose gets dragged out by Baron Corbin. They start fighting near the stage until Corbin gives him a Deep 6 into the technical equipment.

4th Segment - Nikki Bella’s in Daniel Bryan’s office. Bryan tells her that she and Nattie need to cut it out. Bryan has an idea that both her and Nattie will like. They start fighting and Bryan calls for security. Bryan yells at them both and puts them in a Falls Count Anywhere match next week.

5th Segment - Baron Corbin walking backstage. He’s asked for an explanation. He blames his losing at EC on Ambrose. He’s glad to be sending Dean to the hospital tonight.

6th Segment - Dolph Ziggler backstage interview. Renee Young asks him about Kalisto and Apollo Crews calling him a sore loser after losing at EC. He calls Crews and Kalisto losers. Calls it a wakeup call to everyone. He says he’s not done yet. He’s tired of people trying to take his place. Nobody steals the show like him, and nobody takes his place.

7th Segment – Becky Lynch vs Mickie James: It’s a rematch from EC. Mickie immediately targeted Becky’s left arm, which she worked at EC. They’re pretty evenly matched, neither able to get an advantage over the other. After the break, Mickie was working over Becky. Becky made her comeback, But Mickie fought out of it. Mickie went for her Hurricanrana, but Becky threw her over the top rope. Mickie feigned an injury and suckered Becky in and hit the Mick Kick for the win.

The series between them is tied one apiece. I assume they’ll have another match next week.

8th Segment: Naomi’s in the ring. Renee congratulates her on her win at EC. Renee notes that she suffered an injury. Naomi said due to the adrenaline, she didn’t feel the injury. She said it never stopped her then, and won’t now. Nothing will take this away from her. Alexa Bliss interrupts. She insults Naomi. Calls herself the real champion. Naomi tells her not to challenge her. Alexa gives her one week to give her the title, or she’ll beat her up and take it.

9th Segment – WWE Championship: AJ Styles vs John Cena vs Bray Wyatt: When the lights came back on during Wyatt’s entrance, Luke Harper attacked him at ringside. Styles is punching kicking Bray near the apron, but Bray’s laughing it off. Now they’re in the ring. Bray slows AJ’s offense down with a headbutt. Knocks AJ out of the ring, and now Cena’s back in. Does 4 of his 5 moves of doom, goes for the AA, but it’s countered into a Sister Abigail which Cena fights out of. Styles hits Bray with a Phenomenal Forearm, then eats an AA but kicks out. Bray does his creepy crawly thing and hits Cena with Sister Abigail. Styles breaks up the pin. Back from break, Styles hits a frog splash on Bray on the announce table. Crowd chants for him to do it again, and he hits a leg drop which sends Bray through the table. Styles goes for the Phenomenal Forearm, but Cena catches him and hits the AA. He rolls through for another, but Styles counters into the Calf Crusher. Cena counters that into the STF. Bray breaks it up with a Senton. Bray does his upside down pose in the corner, but Cena hits the AA. Bray narrowly kicked out. Styles his the Styles Clash on Cena, but he kicks out. Styles goes for another Phenomenal Forearm, but Cena knocks him off the ropes. Bray then hits Sister Abigail on Cena for the win to retain the WWE Championship.

Bray poses with the title when Randy Orton’s music hits. He walks slowly to the ring. He grabs a mic. He says he refuses to face Bray at WM due to him being the master and himself the servant. He pledges himself to Bray and drops to his knees. Bray says he has the keys to the kingdom.
That was a weird ending. There’s still a few weeks to go before WM, but something was clearly off with that. Maybe it was Orton’s delivery.


No Miz and/or Maryse on this episode. What gives? No mention of their whereabouts or anything.


*I’m tired of the “You deserve it!” chants. They give it to everyone. Becky, Sasha, Alexa, Styles, Owens, Reigns, Rollins, Ambrose, and more recently Naomi and Bray. Even Finn Balor got them. It’s like saying “You deserve it” to every single high school graduate. It loses its meaning when you do it for everyone.
