– Cesaro beat Stardust
Cesaro won, following 10 giant swings & making him submit in the sharpshooter. Fun 10 minute opener.
– Zack Ryder & Darren Young beat Heath Slater & Bo Dallas
Finish saw Ryder pin Dallas with the Rough Ryder. Exactly what you’d think it would be.
– Rusev beat Jack Swagger
Swagger came out with the Union Jack flag. Rusev won with the Accolade submission win. Average match.
– WWE Tag Team Champions The New Day beat Usos & Dudleys
Fun match, one of the best on the show. Dudleys came out with a Liverpool FC flag in Manchester to get heat (soccer rivals, plus Bubba is a Liverpool fan). New Day’s house show act is great. All sorts of wackiness from the trio, mostly weird dance moves.

– Sin Cara beat Tyler Breeze
SC won after hitting the swanton bomb. Average match.
– Divas Champion Charlotte beat Sasha Banks & Becky Lynch
Ric Flair was in Charlotte’s corner. Fun match. Charlotte pinned Becky with both feet on the ropes.
– WWE Champion Roman Reigns beat Sheamus
Sheamus came out and did a promo based on the Liverpool/Manchester soccer rivalry, and even sang the Liverpool FC club anthem (“You’ll Never Walk Alone”) to major heat. Reigns still came out to boos, I’d say 60/40 cheers in his favour. Standard match, Reigns won after a spear.
It was a by the numbers house show with nothing spectacular. Obviously, there were less stars than usual due to the Smackdown tapings going on at the same time in London. But still, we got the World, Tag & Women’s champions so it wasn’t that bad. Lots of kids in attendance. Reigns got 60-40 cheers. Booing him is definitely becoming the cool thing to do, even for the kids/families that Reigns claimed he was being targeted to.

7th November – Glasgow – Raw TV
8th November – Glasgow – Smackdown TV
9th November – Birmingham

The notable things here are that they are doing TV from Glasgow, Scotland for the first time ever, at the Hydro Arena. This is really interesting because they’re running the Hydro Arena building less than 2 weeks before ICW is running the biggest show in their history at the same arena, which simply can’t be a coincidence.
