The Usos, Black and Ricochet defeated The Bar, Rusev and Nakamura
The action was solid, if not formulaic, but it was the announcement of Bliss that had the most weight.
Finally, the signs pointed to a multi-team match for the SmackDown Tag titles, and that was announced on Tuesday night. The addition of Black and Ricochet is interesting in the sense that they would defeat the Revival for the Raw brand titles.
Since this is no longer the case and the team is big enough to close this title, a Black Ricochet win no longer seems to be a sure thing.

The Miz suspended a promo action against Shane McMahon and called WrestleMania his retaliatory.
From there, the A-Lister teamed with Sanity's Killian Dain, Alexander Wolfe and Eric Young for a handicap match arranged by McMahon.
The self-proclaimed best in the world made its mark and watched from afar as his WrestleMania opponent fought three of the most dangerous competitors … in NXT. On the main list it was afterthought and dummy attacks.
That has not changed here.
Driven by McMahon's verbal insults and photos of Miz's father, the former WWE champion, the former WWE champion fought over his opposition. Even when McMahon announced that it would be a match from Falls Count Anywhere, Miz continued to demonstrate resiliency and finally arrested Young for a huge victory.

Grad  C +
Analysis Analysis Analysis . Miz looked like a total guy here, a description that was not usually used in relation to him.
After this was said, he was very controversial and intensified his rivalry with McMahon.
Unfortunately, this was at the expense of Sanity, a faction that is dead in the water like any other act in the entire WWE. After the group had big things to do, the group is somehow less credible than The Ascension and has just been knocked down by a man who has never been confused with "Stone Cold" Steve Austin.
It was definitely curious to use the team this role.

R-Truth, Heavy Machinery, The Hardy Boyz, Carmella, Naomi, Asuka and Nikki Cross fought EC3, Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson, Andrade, Shelton Benjamin, Mandy Rose, Sonya Deville, Lana and Zelina Vega in WWE history's largest mixed-tag team on Tuesday.
There were fun spots, such as Otis Dozovic's Caterpillar maneuver on EC3 and the renewal of the rivalry between Naomi and Mandy Rose, but the end of the game left chaos raging and the referee called for the bell.
Each superstar alternated with the other and culminated with Asuka, who dumped Jeff Hardy and standing in a cool place.
a preview of the Battle Royals on the show on Sunday, this was a harmless fun.
Nobody was better or worse off because he had been involved, and both the men's and women's games of Sunday night were as good as past that point.
The best of everything? Asuka was one week after a devastating defeat in the center and should be the favorite to win the Battle Royal of the women on Sunday.

Just five days before his defense During his United States Championship against Rey Mysterio at WrestleMania, Samoa Joe fought Ali against in a non-title match.
The agile, fast cruiserweight brought Joe the fight and put the champion early.
Unfortunately, a big tornado DDT was the most impressive offense he could submit. He tried a splash of 450, but Joe blocked, put on the Coquina clutch and patted him.
Samoa Joe defeated Ali
 This was a sprint of a match that would put Joe in the limelight, make him relatively competitive and fight a guy who has lost nothing.
He did it all and Joe has a role … Even if his playing with Mysterio feels like some kind of thinking on a loaded map.
