With this being the first co-branded event of the year, the night, overall, wasn’t all that great. The worst match of the night was the WWE Championship match between Nakamura and Styles. What kind of ending was that?! The other matches were better, but, not much.  I think the best match was the Intercontinental Championship match. I don’t know if Charlotte is actually hurt and, I hope she’s ok anyway but, that was a cheap win for Carmella.

I did find the Elias segment to be the best part of it all. Each time he would try to get going, someone would interrupt. From The New Day to the “Glorious One” Bobby Roode. Even Rusev Day got in on it! Anyways,  the next event is June 17th from Chicago and that is “Money in the Bank”. Where the winners of their respectful matches get a guaranteed Championship match, anytime, anywhere! See you all then!
