THE WYATT FAMILY vs. TRAVIS TYLER & SAWYER FULTON- do we really need to see the tag champs randomly squashing people?

STEPH ANNOUNCES THAT WE WILL HAVE A DIVAS TITLE AND THERE WILL BE A TOURNAMENT STARTING NEXT WEEK- Sure. Why not?

EMMA vs. AUDREY MARIE- 1.5/10
WOW! Who would have thought that generic white-meat babyface Audrey Marie would make such a great heel? Also, Nice Muta Lock by Emma!

BRANDON TRAVEN & JAKE CARTER vs. GARRETT DYLAN & SCOTT DAWSON (w/Sylvester Lefort)- 2/10

BIG E. LANGSTON vs. DERRICK BATEMAN- squash

18 MA BATTLE ROYALE FOR AN NWT TITLE MATCH- 6.5/10
I'll give this one a pass on my usual 7/10 minimum requirement for a main event because it was a battle royale that felt important and it was incredibly well-booked. Having Mason Ryan eliminate so many people in the beginning made him look like a beast, having Neville get the two big upsets really put him over, and we saw Ohno and Graves work together successfully to eliminate the bigger man, O'Brian (building up to their tag title match next week against two bigger opponents) but they were still undone by Bray Wyatt, who could be the deciding factor from the outside in next week's match. Oh... and the final two were just great!

Yeah, they definitely threw everything else on this show under the bus for the Battle Royale, but that's fine.
