Bobby Roode and Becky Lynch def. Finn Balor and Sasha Banks in a Semifinal Match
Unfortunately, it was announced Charlotte Flair suffered an injury and had to pull out from this match. As I much as I love their pairing, the dynamic between Roode and Lynch was interesting as well. They had great chemistry with their opponents Balor and Banks as well. Balor vs. Roode was fresh, while Banks and Lynch always work well together. It's rare stuff from Raw and SmackDown Live carries over onto this show, but Banks' apparent heel turn was furthered here with her frustration ultimately costing her and Balor the match. Kurt Angle appearing afterward was a nice treat for the live crowd considering he's a Pittsburgh native, and he announced Charlotte will be back next week to reunite with Roode to take on The Miz and Asuka in the finals.
Although I was looking forward to what was originally advertised, Lynch filling in for Charlotte turned out to be a pleasant surprise. The match we got instead was excellent and everyone played their parts to perfection. I didn't think Balor and Banks would win considering they lost to Miz and Asuka earlier in the tournament, but I enjoyed the action, nonetheless. Next week's finals should be fun.
