Braun Strowman def. LA Knight
I feel like we've barely seen Knight in action since he went from being Max Dupri to LA Knight, so I was looking forward to seeing him back in the ring for this match. Unfortunately, it ended up being a glorified squash for Strowman, who won in what felt like two minutes. I know this show doesn't matter in the long run, but I would've liked to see a more competitive contest from these two, especially since viewers are supposed to take Knight seriously in his current rivalry with Bray Wyatt.
WWE Champion Big E def. Dolph Ziggler (Non-Title)
As Ziggler mentioned recently on Raw, there's a lot of history between these two dating back to when Ziggler brought Big E to the main roster nearly nine years ago. Ziggler was obviously no threat to the WWE Champion, but it was a quality contest for what it was. I'm glad the interference from Robert Roode was kept to a minimum as well. The crowd was into Big E and this served as a solid opener.
SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Street Profits, Daniel Bryan, Jeff Hardy and Rey Mysterio def. Dolph Ziggler, Robert Roode, Intercontinental Champion Sami Zayn, Elias and King Corbin
This was your typical 10-man tag team match where the heels were on offense for a bit before the babyfaces battled back and picked up the victory. While this was nothing out of the ordinary, it was still enjoyable for what it was and it was cool seeing so many different Superstars from SmackDown and Raw interact for the first time (Hardy and Street Profits, Bryan and Roode, etc). The highlight was that final frog splash from Montez Ford. This is no secret, but holy hell, that guy can get some height!
Raw Women's Champion Ronda Rousey & Natalya def. The Riott Squad and Nia Jax & Tamina in a Triple Threat Match
I loved that this managed to further two different feuds (Rousey vs. Jax and Natalya vs. The Riott Squad) simultaneously, and it was a fun match to boot. The three-way format was largely responsible for this being as enjoyable as it was and everyone held their own. Following her victory, Rousey addressed the audience and thanked the troops for everything they do.
Elias and Finn Balor def. Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre
Similar to the opener, this bout featured two teams that have been at odds for weeks. The in-ring action was above-average and it had a great sense of urgency. All four guys worked well together, the crowd was into everything they did, and the final few minutes were well done. The finish was a little lame, but it was an entertaining affair, otherwise. Michael Cole noted on commentary that Elias and Lashley will face off in a Miracle on 34th Street Fight on the upcoming Christmas Eve Raw, so brace yourselves for some cringe-worthy holiday silliness.
