Yup, but could have been a good SD Live main event too. LOL.

Roode/Orton: Decent enough match, with a title change I don't agree with. Jinder comes out to make it two matches in a row with an heel involved in something they weren't scheduled to be.

I actually fell asleep as this started.
Naomi/Becky/Natayla/Carmella: Filler match, nothing to see here. Carmella gets the win so creative can remind us about the briefcase.

Oddly awkward at times, but forgettable for sure.
Usos/New Day: Ruined by match 3 out of 4 with heels getting involved in something they aren't scheduled for.

Honestly, I think the fact that this match was taking place at all was odd. The blow off was Hell In A Cell and due to literally a lack of any planning to create opponents for The Usos, they're revisiting this again and even if the match continued with a straight finish, no way does it come close to their previous matches thus watering down what these two teams left for us to remember. What I find AMUSING is how many people on social media thought Woods' injury was legit. TBH I didnt even think his selling job was that convincing of a real back injury and the fact that the EMTs didn't immediately stabilize his neck as a precaution in all spinal-related injuries was an obvious tell-tale sign of a work.
Charlotte/Ruby: Match 4 out of 5, this time with the challenger having her heel lackeys shifted. So so match, nothing special but not a pointless watch.

Definitely a solid match and a "coming out" statement for Ruby Riott as a legit worker. Riott's development from NXT to SDLive should be a testament NOT to the cookie cutter regimen of the Performance Center, but rather to her work on the indies IMHO.
Six Man Main Event: Really enjoyable main event. Bits of stupidity in it, but that's what happens in these kind of matches. 

More multiman matches for the hell of it. Still dunno where they are going with it and I don't think WWE does either.
Overall I would give the card a six out of ten. Too many matches with outside interference.

The opener was fantastic between Nakamura and Rusev - some of the kicks were brutal in particular the Machka kick that turned Nakamura upside down

The US title match was good too - the aftermath set up what looks like a triple threat at Mania - dont agree that Mahal should be anywhere near that title like

The womens tag match was ok - good to see Carmella get a win

Hated the tag title match and the ending with the BB interfering - made the other 2 teams look weak as fuck which is not what they should be doing. Looks like we have a big tag title match at mania - only positive was that Usos retained

Womens title was ok .. told you all Asuka was challenging Charlotte - now i hope Carmella cashes in on the Raw champion in a swerve of sorts

6 pack challenge was match of the night for me. The only thing that is pissing me off is how much the Shane thing is dragging on with Owens and Sami

Solid PPV and much better than EC
