In-ring segment: With Nick Aldis in the ring, AJ Styles, LA Knight, and Randy Orton came out to sign the contract. However, Wiseman Heyman came out claiming that Reigns would not be signing the contract. Aldis told Heyman that if Reigns didn’t sign, the WWE Universal Championship would be vacant for the three men to compete for. This results in Heyman insulting the SmackDown General Manager.

Knight took the mic to tell Heyman he talks too much. After a back and forth, Styles got involved only to attack Knight. The two go at it with each other, with Aldis trying to break them up. Orton got his hands on Heyman and told him that he would reintroduce Reigns to the three most dangerous letters, R-K-O.

Backstage segment: As Aldis makes his way to his office, AJ Styles asks for a match with LA Knight. Aldis agrees.

Carlito, Cruz Del Toro, and Joaquin Wilde (The L.W.O) vs. Angel Garza, Humberto Carrillo, and Santos Escobar (Legado del Fantasma)

Winner: Angel Garza, Humberto Carrillo, and Santos Escobar

The match was fast-paced, with both teams pushing boundaries for the win. While Garza and Carrillo display their strength, Del Toro and Wilde show off their high-flying ability. This feud has been going on since Escobar betrayed Rey Mysterio and left the LWO. By the end, all hell broke loose, giving Santos a chance to get the pinfall via a schoolboy rollup.

Backstage segment: The Pretty Deadly are interviewed, and they claim they’ve been studying British Strong Style tapes all week. This is ahead of their match.

Pete Dunne and Tyler Bate (British Strong Style) vs. Elton Prince and Kit Wilson (Pretty Deadly)

Winner: Pete Dunne and Tyler Bate

Returning to his Bruiserweight Pete Dunne gimmick, the British Strong Style had the majority of the match in their favor. While Prince and Wilson kept Dunne out of the match by isolating Bate, he was able to hold his own. Once Dunne was tagged in, everything was over, with Dunne picking up the win with the Bitter End on Prince.

In-ring segment: We get the Kevin Owens Show with Logan Paul as the guest. The WWE United States Champ told Owens that he was the reason why he joined the WWE. Owens claims that despite what he says, Paul will never be a wrestler like him. Paul claims that Owens’ arm cast is a weapon and that it won’t be allowed in their rumble match. Ownen takes off the cast, and the two brawl. On the outside, Paul slammed Owens’ exposed hand into the ring post.

Backstage segment: Reigns is seen talking to Jimmy Uso and Solo Sikoa. He asks why they were having fun instead of fixing things. Sikoa takes the blame and tells Reigns he will fix it tonight.

Katana Chance and Kayden Carter vs. Alba Fyre & Isla Dawn (the Unholy Union) for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship

Winner: Katana Chance and Kayden Carter retain their Tag Team titles

The match was quick with Damage CTRL at the announce table. Despite starting off hard, the Unholy Union was no match for Chance and Carter. With a chance to prove to Damage CTRL that the tag champs are a threat, the two champions didn’t hold back. Hitting Fyre with the Afterparty, the champs retained their titles. Asuka and Kairi Sane tease, wanting the title.

Video package: Karrion Kross’s video package targeting Bobby Lashley and the Street Profits plays. He calls them the ‘Yes’ men of the company, and the WWE Universe will finally see how mighty he really is.

Backstage interview: Carmelo Hayes is interviewed backstage only to be interrupted by Austin Theory. Hayes challenges for a match, but Theory claims he’s busy next week. So, Grayson Waller accepts on his behalf.

AJ Styles vs. LA Knight

Winner: Match ended in disqualification due to Solo Sikoa attacking LA Knight

The match that was issued tonight finally saw Styles and Knight in a singles match. While both men were equally matched, Knight had the upper hand. Getting Styles outside the ring, Jimmy Uso showed up on the ramp. Knight, hoping to get a piece of Jimmy, got distracted. This led to Solo Sikoa attacking Knight with the Samoan Spike. This led to the referee ending the match. After taking out Knight, Sikoa got Styles in the ring for another brutal Samoan Spike. Taking the mic, Sikoa announced, “Two down, one to go.” He called out Randy Orton for their Main Event match.

Winner: The match starts out with Sikoa taking charge of the match. With the motivation to prove to the Tribal Chief that he is the right heir, Sikoa was not holding back. After getting a break on the outside, we got to see Vintage Orton in the ring. The sold-out crowd was behind the Viper. This resulted in Jimmy Uso coming out only to be attacked by Knight and Styles. This distraction led to Sikoa preparing to hit the Samoan Spike only to eat an RKO.

Post-match: All three men, Orton, Knight, and Styles, get in the ring. Knight attacks Styles and eats an RKO from Orton. As Styles gets up, Orton hits another RKO. Reigns got in the ring and hit Orton with a Superman Punch. Finally, at the end of the show, Reigns signed the contract. Setting up Orton for a spear, Reigns ate an RKO to end the show.

One take at a time

My passion for professional wrestling began when I saw Kane ripping the Hell in a Cell door off in the iconic 1997 match. I used to enjoy watching WWE re-runs at 5 in the evening when I got home from school. It was sort of a ritual for me.
