Mahalicia vs. Moon & Hawkins
The narrative commentary was hammering was that Curt Hawkins hasn’t won a match in the switch and years from Braun Strowman. Will the historic streak end in a mixed tag team match?
“This could be Curt Hawkins best opportunity,” Vic Joseph said. Renee Young followed up that this could lead to Hawkins getting.
Hawkins sucks, get it?
He sucks so bad, he wanted Moon to stay in the match, to the point that when Foxy tagged in Mahal, Hawkins campaigned to stay in and just throw hands with Jinder. Why Mahal controlled the action for a protracted period it was evident. This all was about Hawkins making a tag to get back Moon in. She ran wild on Fox, including a few near falls when he did. She hit the Eclipse but Hawkins tagged himself in so he could attempt to pin Fox before she jumped off for it.
He was that desperate.
Of course, that’s not the rules in this tournament work, and he wasn’t permitted to get the win this way. Rather, Mahal hit the Khallas ran back in, and scored the pin.
Nation Dominance vs. B’n’B
They did the typical pre-match posturing, with Lio Rush and Bobby Lashley posing being annoying and all that jazz. The game started with Bayley and Mickie James going back-and-forth till they both jumped to label their respective partners in. Lashley took control and was dominant so Balor couldn’t tag out, while Bayley was ripping off the apron. That only lasted so long, however, and he got to her. It was her turn to get in and run wild.
James came back, although she had the edge for a moment. When Bayley overtook her once more and it seemed like she went to score the win, Lio Rush interfered. That brought Finn back and he took out the guys to give Bayley time to strike Bayley-to-Belly on James to score the pinfall and the victory.
