Reactions: This match was more of a vehicle to add some much needed hilarity to the SummerSlam card. And that’s exactly what it did. While the match itself was pretty average, there were some fun moments strewn throughout it. Jon Stewart joined The New Day festivities by filling in for Big E, which was actually frowned upon by the BK audience. They haven’t forgotten about his slimy tactics during last year’s Summerslam. The match broke down after Jon almost got slammed into the ring post. Big E came out to join the fray and put a hurting on Anderson and Gallows. This was OK, but we know it will be even better at the next PPV. We still got some hip swiveling at the end of all this though, so we’re still somewhat satisfied.

Reactions: This was good, but not good enough for a match where the WWE World Championship was on the line. The crowd didn’t seem too energetic during the entirety of this bout, but they came alive during a few moments here and there. Ziggler kept the pace going while Dean entertained by mimicking his opponent’s familiar taunts. They went back and forth with their usual moves, but there seemed to be a lack of energy from both the crowd and both men during the closing stretch. We did get a “kick” out of Ziggler’s Superkick to Dean on the outside. Overall though, this was not quite as special as we imagined it could have been. Ziggler lost, which is quite the heartbreaker for us.

Carmella, Becky Lynch, and Naomi vs. Natalya, Alexa Bliss and Nikki Bella (Six-Woman Tag Team Match)


Nikki Bella is ready to take over SmackDown Live: SummerSlam Exclusive, Aug. 21, 2016After her surprise return at SummerSlam 2016, Nikki Bella is excited to officially join the SmackDown Live roster.

Reactions: Eva Marie’s suspended, but her grand entrance still got showcased to the live audience. So who ended up taking her place? Nikki Bella, who’s now medically cleared to get back into the newly refreshed Women’s Division. The crowd got a kick out of her seeing her make her surprise arrival, which was a cool moment to see. As for the match, it was your run of the mill multi-women tag team match. Every woman got their time to shine, especially Carmella and Alexa Bliss. NXT’s latest main roster call up’s looked impressive here and helped keep the fast pace going. The bad gals won, which was fine. This was decent at best. If you’re a huge Nikki Bella fan though, this match will mean so much more to you.
