We kick off the show with highlights of previous Great American Bashes mixed with the match build ups for tonight. Mauro Ranallo mentions that Dusty Rhodes created the Great American Bash 35 years ago. They have red, white, and blue ropes. It's a good touch along with some red, white, and blue cars by the entrance.


The fatal four way match is first!! Raquel Gonzalez is banned from ringside. Candice LeRae was eliminated by Mia Yim when she hit LeRae with Sole Food. It wasn't even 5 minutes in for LeRae. Mia Yim was eliminated by Dakota Kai using a roll up with a bridge at about the 10 minute mark. We're down to Kai and Nox. TEGAN NOX DEFEATED DAKOTA KAI WITH THE MOLLY-GO-ROUND FROM THE TOP FOLLOWED BY THE SHINIEST WIZARD!!! Tegan Nox earns the right to challenge Io Shirai for the NXT Women's championship! Great way to kick off the show!! The match was about 20 minutes total.


McKenzie Mitchell interviews Damian Priest. Priest talks about all the things Cameron Grimes has done to him in the past couple weeks. Priest challenges Grimes to a match.


Sasha Banks and Bayley are backstage. Banks is warming up for her match with Io Shirai which will be the main event. The main event will be commercial free.


Timothy Thatcher defeated Oney Lorcan by submission with the Fujiwara arm bar. This was a good technical match that was about 11:30. After the match, Thatcher keeps the arm bar locked for a bit before finally letting go.


A video airs featuring Karrion Kross talking about time being up for everyone. It ends with Kross saying it's not about the time you put in but the time you take away.


Time for the handicap match. If Rhea Ripley loses, she must join the Robert Stone Brand. Robert Stone comes out looking like TKO Marc Mero with goggles haha. RHEA RIPLEY DEFEATED ROBERT STONE AND ALIYAH by submission when she made them both tap out simultaneously with a double Prism Trap!! Therefore, Rhea Ripley does NOT have to join the Robert Stone Brand. The match was about 10 minutes.


We see highlights of the build up between Dexter Lumis and Roderick Strong. Their strap match is next!


Roderick Strong attacked Dexter Lumis before the match. Despite interference by Bobby Fish, DEXTER LUMIS DEFEATED RODERICK STRONG by submission after hitting a uranage and making Strong tap out to a strap assisted Silence. The match was about 16 minutes.

McKenzie Mitchell is backstage with Candice LeRae and Johnny Gargano. LeRae complains about losing the fatal four way and gets in a brawl with Mia Yim. Gargano is confronted by Isiah "Swerve" Scott and they have words.


Legado del Fantasma are out now to talk. Escobar says lucha libre is more than just mask wrestling. They will restore DRAKE MAVERICK is back to interrupt wearing a neck collar. Maverick takes off the collar and runs to the ring where he gets beat down. BREEZANGO is out to make the save! They take out Wilde and Mendoza then Escobar bails! Fandango challenges them to a six man tag next week.

NXT Women's champion Io Shirai defeated WWE Women's Tag Team champion Sasha Banks accompanied by WWE Smackdown Women's champion and WWE Women's Tag Team champion Bayley. Bayley tried to interfere on Sasha's behalf. However, when Bayley had the ref distracted, ASUKA showed up and sprayed the green mist in Sasha's eyes allowing Shirai to win with the moonsault from the top!!! Great match between two of the best and I didn’t mind the interference finish. This match was about 15 minutes.


Asuka celebrates with Io!!! End Show.
