Ruby Riott got the pin.
At one point, Rollins hit a beautiful frog splash, flying more than halfway across the ring, but only got a two count for his troubles.
Eight matches have been announced including AJ Styles taking on Shinsuke Nakamura for the WWE Championship in a No Disqualification match. The simple fact is that Bliss and Jax don't have a ton of chemistry. Reigns another roll-up, only to get caught in the Coquine Clutch yet again.
Rusev Day are out next to an amazing pop. Rusev calls them Bootleg Bob Dylan and the Booty Boys. Bliss followed this up with a DDT onto the stairs at ringside, which was a cool spot that looked great.
Nia Jax (c) vs. Alexa Bliss For The Raw Women's Championship. However, it would be silly to see fans walking out on your top babyface at this level and still believe there is no problem. This time though, it was a case of backstage booking that kept them out of the spotlight. From being The Shield's Architect to crumbling the faction and becoming The Authority's big star, Rollins has done it all.
Roman Reigns overcame Samoa Joe in an intense battle and his feud is now over as The Destroyer belongs to Smackdown. There was no doubt that Joe would be fed to Reigns after back-to-back pay-per-view losses to Brock Lesnar, but at least Joe put up a strong fight and can now move his attention to AJ Styles and the WWE title on SmackDown Live.
It could be a big step to developing Carmella as a star for SmackDown, but the match did not exactly feel like The Princess of Staten Island's coming-out party.
Reigns won the match after hitting the spear. Rollins did a masterful job of selling it throughout the match, especially making sure to limp right before The Miz hit his finishers, showing some continuity.
- The paperback release of Second Nature: The Legacy of Ric Flair and the Rise of Charlotte Flair is set for a February 5, 2019 release.
I expect Ruby Riott to follow up last week's win against Sasha with another one against Bayley, with a little help from her friends of course.
AJ takes a kick to the cheek but he comes right back and puts Nakamura in the Calf Crusher near the middle of the ring.
Braun Strowman and Bobby Lashley vs. Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn was another missed opportunity. Nakamura gets to the ropes and goes to the floor for safety, avoiding the Clash.
Backlash 2018 ended yesterday in New Jersey with the Bigdog Roman Reigns defeating Samoa Joe. Once the match finally began, Joe had the upper hand and continued the assault.
Rollins's work in the ring is more than befitting that of an Intercontinental Champion, and it's gotten to the point where fans wonder if he could have a shot at being the WWE's top babyface in the future.
Will the duo break up tonight at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York?
