- Main Roster Call Ups In Action: The first match of the show saw Ruby Riot battle Sonya Deville in one on one action. Sonya Deville debuted this week on the main roster with Monday Night RAW as did Ruby Riot with Smackdown Live. Sonya spends some time in the match going after Ruby's leg, injuring it. Sonya is able to apply a leg submission on Ruby, but Ruby just makes the ropes to escape. Sonya argues with the referee which allows Ruby to hit the arm wringer kick for the win.

Drew McIntyre is interviewed and is upset about his torn bicep injury and isn't sure when he'll be back. We get a full recap of the WarGames match between Undisputed Era/Authors of Pain, Roderick Strong and SAnitY.

- WWE United Kingdom Championship On The Line: The main event of the show saw the bruiserweight Pete Dunne defend his WWE United Kingdom Championship against Johnny Gargano. Gargano traps Dunne in the Gargano Escape, but Dunne escapes by biting Gargano. Both men trade shots until Gargano hits a super kick on Dunne and gets a two and a half. Dunne lands a huge shot on Gargano and finishes him off with The Bitter End to retain his title.
