John Cena opens the show. He wants to know what he has to do to get to Wrestlemania. Daniel Bryan and Shane McMahon make John Cena vs. AJ Styles for tonight. If Cena wins he is in the main event at Fastlane.
Analysis: Kind of have an idea where this is going. Should be interesting though since Cena and Styles have good matches together.
Baron Corbin def. Sami Zayn
Analysis: Kevin Owens was entertaining on commentary. The match itself was not that interesting. They really did not need to go back and forth backstage and in the ring.
Ruby Riott def. Naomi
Analysis: Both women performed okay. Didn’t feel that exciting and the crowd was not that into it.
The Usos and The New Day go face to face in a promo segment.
Analysis: Big E and The Usos were on fire for this promo segment. Both teams really showed their passion and got the crowd excited for their match at Fastlane.
Shinsuke Nakamura def. Aiden English
Analysis: Okay match. Glad Shinsuke is back on TV. He hasn’t been on much since winning the Rumble.
John Cena def. AJ Styles
Analysis: The match was good. Predictable finish.
Overall: This was an okay show. It had decent action and promo segments to keep audiences somewhat interested.
