John Cena vs. Triple H


The two behemoths of the industry faced off to start the show. One of the greatest heels of all time taking on one of the greatest faces of all time. The Game had some great heel moments, taunting Cena by waving his hand in front of his face and mocking Cena’s “You can’t see me” catchphrase. Even going as far as to use Cena’s own Five Knuckle Shuffle against him. The Cerebral Assassin seemed to have the upper hand through more of the match but it wasn’t enough to put Super Cena down. Two AA’s in a row put the King of Kings away and John Cena emerged victorious.

Cedric Alexander (c) vs. Kalisto for Cruiserweight Championship


The high fliers of the cruiserweight division were on full display at The Greatest Royal Rumble. The Soul of 205Live Cedric Alexander and Lucha Dragon Kalisto lived up to their athletic abilities in this match. With flips few people could do and kicks that looked like they could take someones head off these two showed why more people should be watching 205Live. The current champion proved to be too much for the former champion, Alexander retains his Cruiserweight Championship.

The Bar vs. Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt for the Raw Tag Team Titles


Recent Raw expatriates The Bar want to find their way back to the red brand by winning the Raw Tag Team Titles therefor forcing SmackDown Live to send them back over. To do so they would have to go through newly minted tag team of Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt. The feat would prove to be too much for The Bar. Even though they showed how dominant they could be, the odd duo of Hardy and Wyatt found a way to come out on top. Looks like The Bar are staying on SmackDown Live and the entertaining duo of Hardy and Wyatt will begin their reign of the tag division of Raw.

Jeff Hardy (c) vs. Jinder Mahal for US Title


Jinder Mahal looks to avenge his embarrassing eight-day US Title reign by getting the championship back from perennial fan favorite Jeff Hardy. Mahal would show he could be a massive force and Hardy showed he still has the ability to fly high. Maybe not the most well-executed match, with at least one major botch that the announcers even had trouble talking away… Regardless Jeff Hardy defeats the Modern Day Maharaja and walks away, still, your United States Champion.

The Bludgeon Brothers (c) vs. The Uso’s for the SmackDown Live Tag Team Titles


The Usos look to get their SmackDown Tag Team Titles back from the bruising duo that is The Blugeon Brothers. The Bludgeon Brothers have seemed like an unstoppable force since busting onto the blue brand’s tag division. The Usos put in the most offense they have been able to in weeks during this match against the two big men but it just wasn’t enough. The Bludgeon Brothers put down the Usos to retain their titles.

Seth Rollins (c) vs. Finn Balor vs. The Miz vs. Samoa Joe for the Intercontinental Championship


Fans were excited to see three huge names from the independent scene in such a high profile match against each other. Add in arguably WWE’s best working heel at the moment, The Miz and you should have a great match right? Well, that’s what you got. Each man put their bodies on the line and told a great story. Balor and Rollins showed their athletic ability, Samoa Joe was the powerhouse we expected, and The Miz was the opportunistic heel we all know and love. Each man used the ladder as a blunt object to either bludgeon their foe with or throw them into. The match was highlighted by Rollins vaulting off the ropes onto the ladder to leapfrog Balor, who was climbing up the other side and snatch the title right out from Balor’s hands. Must watch match.

AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura for the WWE Championship


When these two faced off at Wrestlemania 34 we were all hoping for a dream match. WWE promoted it as a dream match. These two are capable of a dream match. What we got was, well… pretty good. Now these two have another shot at bringing the magic they had in NJPW to the WWE. The difference is this time it wasn’t two good guys who respect each other. We have the face, AJ Styles. And the heel, Shinsuke Nakamura who seems to have a natural desire to deliver low blows to the boy from Georgia. We got a much faster-paced match than at Wrestlemania but what’s really helping this story is the character shift. Nakamura plays a great heel and it makes it believable that Styles would like nothing more than to lay down a beating on him. So much so this match ended in a double count out due to the fact Styles was so transfixed on causing pain to Nakamura. Maybe not the ending we hoped for but great for the story and definitely an improvement on Wresltmania 34.

Rusev vs. The Undertaker in a Casket Match


The Undertaker is arguably the most popular gimmick in WWE history and now he takes on what is currently one of WWE’s most popular gimmicks in the form of Rusev Day. Was this truly going to be Rusev day? The Deadman looked better than he has in past matches and Rusev is always solid. Just when it seemed that Rusev may have the upper hand he turned his back on the Undertaker for just a second and that left the window open for his signature rise. After putting the Bulgarian Brute in the casket, Aiden English tried to jump in and help his friend and was met with a similar fate. After the Undertaker put both of the men into the casket, he closed the lid and won the match. Hopefully there are brighter days in the future but for now, RIP Rusev Day.

Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship


Well, we get Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns… again. The match started like you would expect, a few suplexes and an F5 by Lesnar. Then is degraded into a fight that looked like a video game where you set the match to unlimited finishers…F5s, spears, and superman punches given out like candy on Halloween. This was a better match than it’s Wrestlemania counterpart but had a less clear ending. Reigns speared Lesnar through a panel in the cage and both men came tumbling out onto the floor. Lesnar was named the winner for having landed on the floor first, but the rule is whichever competitors feet touch the ground first. Well on second glance that was Reigns. Is this a story point? Was this a mistake? Will it be part of the story going forward or ignored? This match seems to have caused more questions than answers.

50-Man Royal Rumble


The moment we all were waiting for! The largest Royal Rumble of all time. There’s no way to get people more excited then immediately throwing in everyone’s favorite everyman, Daniel Bryan. The match started with some exciting moments like the entrance of Hall of Famer Mark Henry and the surprise return of Hornswoggle at #12. The crowd was elated when legend Rey Mysterio came out at number #28. There was also a very amusing moment when entrant #39 Titus O’Neil tripped on his entrance, much to the humor of the announcers. The Great Khali made a huge albeit short appearance near the end and Shane McMahon went classic Shane going coast to coast on Braun Stroman. The crowd’s collective heart broke when Daniel Bryan was eliminated by Big Cass leaving just Cass and Braun Stroman in the ring. But at the end of the day, The Monster Among Men stood tall. He eliminated the 7 foot monster on his way to winning the Greatest Royal Rumble.
