Q'N'D:

-Breezango upset the Usos on the pre-show as Breeze raised the knees to block Jimmy's top-rope splash and small-packaged him for the win.
-Sasha and It's Bayley(who got a huge pop) beat Charlotte and Dana when Sasha made Charlotte tap out to the Bank Statement. By all accounts(and by that I mean JBL), this was a one-shot deal for Bayley and she hasn't been "officially" called up to the main roster.
-Wyatts beat New Day as Xavier overcame his fear of Bray but still got dropped with Sister Abigail for the finish.
-Rusev retained the U.S. Title against Ryder via Accolade in a match that was far more competitive than you might have thought a few months ago. Mojo hit the ring to prevent any post-match damage to his Hype Bro tag partner.
-Zayn beat Owens after two Helluva Kicks in a Match Of The Year candidate.
-Natalya defeated Becky with the Sharpshooter in a match that was solid but had trouble following what preceded it.
-Miz vs. Young ended in a weird no-contest when the outside parties(Maryse and Backlund) got involved and Young locked Miz in the crossface chicken wing on the arena floor. Young looked at his hands afterwards in a callback to Backlund's initial heel turn in '94.
-Cena/Enzo/Cass d. Bullet Club after a top-rope F-U by Cena on Styles. Enzo's pre-match promo was outstanding, howyadoin.
-Ambrose won the triple threat with Reigns and Rollins after Reigns speared Rollins and Ambrose hit Dirty Deeds on Reigns for the win. Shane/Steph/Bryan/Foley were all at ringside but didn't get involved. The SD roster celebrated with Ambrose to close the show, making me wonder why the Usos were celebrating with the guy who just beat their cousin...

Just give me one great match and a good main event, and I can certainly forget about inconsequential undercard matches. This was a great show and Owens and Zayn tore it down.

Sami is the real MVP. Sadly, he will be third banna on Raw. Dean winning clean is interesting. Bayley was a great surprise. The rest of the card was mixed bag of results. Cena could have eaten a pin here or not have AJ eat the pin.

Didn't they throw Reigns under the bus on the draft? Then again, looking at the photo of them hoisting Ambrose up, that could set up a heel turn if they were that expressive as actors.

It would be nice if Zayn and Owens were on different brands so they could stay apart at least until The Rumble, but alas they should be on opposite teams in some throw away Raw match in a week or two.

New Day has done more for Bray's character than anything else WWE has tried the last couple of years.

I liked the first half of this show a lot. I sort of got tired and lost interest the second half, but Enzo has become quite capable in the ring which is surprising and good to see.

So, Reigns must have been busted for something that keeps the weight off. The rumor was Adderall which makes sense. Also WWE is walking a fine line calling out Brock Lesnar right after calling out Roman Reigns when The Chairman and COO have never passed the eye test themselves.

and the guy actually calling Brock out for failing a test has failed many a test.

I know it's not saying much, but is this the best WWE main roster PPV for 2016 so far?

- Bayley was a fun addition to the show.
- Zayn/Owens was MOTY for the main roster, I think.
- Ryder's tribute to Sting/Warrior/Savage was great. (twitter.com)
- Enzo Amore has quickly surpassed the New Day as best live act.
- Orton's back and he's in a great mood.
- The right guy went over in the Shield Triple Threat (even though he had to share the moment with figureheads).

I'm still sour on the idea of doing a roster split, but it at least gave me some things to enjoy and I think my general interest has been sustained for another week.

This has "Loser Leaves RAW" written all over it, maybe Summerslam.

I like how Becky had a "The Club" shirt on in the back but they made her take it off when they celebrated. That a hint at Balor joining the club?

Whats up with Bray slowly turning into Rob Zombie?

The right person went over in most of these matches. Would've liked to see Ryder win, though.

Owens & Zayn was an awesome match that was both wrestling and brawling.

Speaking of those two, in the pre-show Cesaro sort of rambled on for a bit about how he knew they'd steal the show and how that made him feel bad because he wants to be out there too. I know what he wanted to say but it didn't sound right. I did enjoy how he brought up that their rivalvry affects him (and others) as their fights cost him title shots and such too (interfering in matches etc)

The entire card delivered, from the Bayley moment (I liked how she was NOT the focus of the match btw. Save that for her re-appearance later) to Ambrose cleanly pinning Reigns.
Tbh I thought it'd be a double pin by both Seth and Dean, setting up a title split but this was better.

I enjoyed Natalya vs Becky a lot. It helped reestablish Natalya who I think hasn't show much wrestling the past few years. This was a solid match where she worked Becky's legs to set up the finish. Nice!

Miz-Young will probably get a rematch but I can't see how Ryder gets another shot. Oh and sorry Zack, Mojo found you and he wants to tag.

Enzo's promo was insane. I wonder if he (they?) purposely put a few lame lines in there to give the impression that he really is just rambling because some lines just didn't make sense and then he goes back to hitting them out of the park. I liked how Cena played along too. Oh and the match was ok. Nothing great but that wasn't the point of it I guess

I'm not particularly inclined to buy a card in which Kurt Angle is just about guaranteed to job, and Chris Jericho might not even participate. Especially when Triple H will be a prominent part of the show, even though he doesn't have a match.
