Thanks to rajah.com reader Graham Caygill for sending this in!
Crowd at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Stadium is around 80 per cent full. Natalya opens the show by coming to the ring to thank everyone for coming and, like Alicia Fox had done the previous night, celebrate being one of the first Women’s Superstars to make an appearance in the UAE.
Kalisto beat Alberto Del Rio to retain the United States title – fun match, with lots of Lucha Dragons chants. Good finishing stretch ends with Kalisto getting the pin to retain.
Fandango beat Damien Sandow – Sandow came out as a face and thanked the crowd for cheering him the previous night, but then was booed heavily after he criticised Emiratis for singing Fandango’s theme. Fandango wins a short match with leg drop off top rope.
Big Show beat Los Matadors in a handicap match – squash match in which Show beats up both men at leisure and gets win by pinning both men at same time after delivering a double chokeslam.
Sami Zayn beat Kevin Owens. Owens is a master of antagonising a crowd and his expressions, gestures verbal abuse to both Zayn and members of the crowd turn an initial respectful reaction when he came out into real heat. Good back and forth closing segment ends with Zayn winning with the Ole kick.
Short intermission follows
R-Truth beats Bo Dallas, who was accompanied by Heath Slater – R-Truth, who remains very over in the UAE with his schtick, gets a roll-up win. Dallas and Slater beat him down afterwards but Goldust makes the save.
AJ Styles beats Ryback – Really good match, with Styles taking a lot of punishment from Ryback before he wins with springboard forearm.
The Miz retained the Intercontinental title in a triple threat with Dean Ambrose and Dolph Ziggler
Fun triple threat if all three men hitting their finishers to create some great near falls. Finish sees Ambrose hit Dirty Deeds on Ziggler, but Miz sneaks up and rolls up Ambrose, grabbing hold of the rope for leverage as he gets the pin.
Post-Match – Miz denies cheating to win, but eats both Ambrose and Ziggler’s finishers. Ambrose and Ziggler then celebrate with fans and pose for pictures to close the show.
