Overall Rating: 7/10

I hate to sound disappointed but I think this event could of been better. The kickoff match is what it is and expectations aren't high because it's the kickoff match. The women's cell match was good but the lack of using the cell in a cell match left a lot to be desired in my opinion. Belair should be moving on to a new challenger. Rollins evens the score with Cesaro. I'm not sure if the feud will conclude or where either man goes from here. Bliss continues to do super natural things. You either love this stuff or hate it. Ripley/Charlotte bothered me more than it should. I feel Ripley should be booked as Charlotte's equal as the champ. However, she comes off looking desperate to keep her title. Ripley should of defeated her last year. That obviously didn't happen. Charlotte has another chance to put Ripley over clean and doesn't do it again. Who has she put over clean since Becky Lynch? Anyways, the main event delivered and McIntyre's decisions led to his own downfall. I think the right call was made and we'll get a fresh challenger as we head towards something which I think will be good for both men.
