DUSTY RHODES TAG TEAM CLASSIC SEMI-FINALS
MSK vs. LEGADO DEL FANTASMA
Joaquin Wilde starts out the match in control of Wes Lee, working the arm with some mat-based wrestling, however, Lee quickly picks up the pace with a big kick and Nash Carter comes in as he charges into Wilde in the corner with a nod to X-Pac.
Wilde tries to work the arm of Carter, but he is smart enough to get out of it, sending him across the ring which allows Raul Mendoza to tag in. Wes Lee returns as well though, with MSK hitting a couple of fast-paced strikes, finishing with Carter connecting with a stomp.
The heels are able to quickly turn things around though and they make constant tags, hitting running clotheslines into the corner back and forth, following it with a double suplex as Mendoza then bounces his partner off the top rope and back onto Lee.
However, Lee is able to then fall to his partner and Carter catches Mendoza with a knee strike to the jaw. Wilde tags in and gets launched into the air as he dropkicks Carter to the floor and then takes out Lee on the apron for good measure.
Carter connects with a strike when they get back into the ring and Wes Lee is able to tag in and nail a massive jumping spin kick to the face of Mendoza. Wilde then gets sent out as well and Carter flips in the air, being pushed as he does so to land on his opponents. Lee then follows that by launching himself over the top rope to attack them yet again.
Mendoza responds with a strike of his own though and he then walks the top rope to hit a missile dropkick, as Wilde hits a reverse hurricanrana. Mendoza then takes out Lee again, but Carter breaks up the pinfall just in time. Mendoza then puts him on his shoulders as Wilde bounces off him to flip to try and hit Wes Lee, but he gets his knees up and goes for a roll-up, only for Mendoza to throw Carter at him.
They then aim for a double team, but Carter pulls Mendoza out of the ring as Wilde eats a kick to the face and MSK hit an impressive double team to advance to the finals.

XIA LI vs.
Before the match happens, Kacy Catanzaro and Kayden Carter are shown at ringside trying to talk to Xia Li, but Boa is stopping them. The distraction opens up a chance for her opponent to attack, but that doesn’t work out, and she quickly takes her down with a couple of strong strikes.
Li follows it up with a sharp kick to the back and then connects with her spinning kick to the face to finish the match.
Winner: Xia Li
After the match, Xia continues attacking her opponent which leads to Kacy and Kayden trying to talk to her. However, Kayden then heads up the ramp to Tian Sha who is sat on the chair, but she just totally ignores her and Xia Li come from behind and launches Carter off the ramp to the floor.
Both Boa and Xia then talk to Tian Sha but she ends up choking Boa while Xia Li goes on to attack Kacy Catanzaro, dropping her with a spinning kick as well, an

WWE Smackdown Results: Daniel Bryan vs Jey Uso In A Steel Cage Match

Michael Cole welcomed Daniel Bryan to the ring to kick off the show. Bryan acknowledged that Edge vs Roman Reigns is the dream match everyone wants to see in the main event at WrestleMania 37. He talked about rolling out of the ring at the Elimination Chamber feeling like a failure, watching Edge spear the champion and point to the WrestleMania sign. Bryan admitted that he’s been putting his own career on the backburner for the sake of giving back to the younger stars who are ready and deserve his spot. But he’s wrestled more in the last three weeks than Reigns or Edge have in the last three months, and promises to be the one who ruins everyone’s WrestleMania dream match.
Roman Reigns came out with his entourage and mocked Bryan for finally finding his ambition again. He claimed that Bryan doesn’t really love wrestling anymore, so much as he needs it. Reigns said that Bryan needs him at the Head of the Table just like everyone else in WWE. Jey Uso took the mic and told Bryan that he wasn’t walking out of the Steel Cage tonight. He didn’t lock Roman out of the cage, he locked himself inside with a pitbull. Uso took a shot at him, but Bryan easily sent him over the top rope like a chump and stared down the champion.
King Corbin def. Montez Ford
This was supposed to be a tag team match but Corbin refused because he’s a singles star, and demanded a singles match against either member of the Street Profits. Corbin won a short but solid match with the End of Days after Sami Zayn caused a distraction outside the ring. Zayn demanded that he return the favor in his match, but Corbin refused and stormed off.
Angelo Dawkins def. Sami Zayn
Another short but solid match with a distraction finish. Zayn had it won after an Exploder Suplex into the corner and lined up for the Helluva Kick, but noticed Montez Ford yelling at the documentary crew outside the ring. Dawkins rolled him up for the win. Zayn screamed at the doc crew and lost his mind after the match, choking out one of the camera guys and demanding to know who hired him and if he was with “the company”.
Reginald tried to give Carmella a bottle of champaign backstage, but she called him a snake and knocked the bottle out of his hands. Carmella called Reginald out for his obsession with Sasha Banks and fired him!
Dominik Mysterio def. Chad Gable
Dominik once again looked really good working through the basics here, and Gable being Gable was able to handle more of the technical stuff and make it look good. Commentary played up that Dominik was going to be a big star in the future but he was still just starting out and Gable was at the peak of his ability. Then Dom dodged a moonsault and rolled him up to win. Rey Mysterio immediately took to the apron and dove onto Otis, taking him over the announce table.

Ilja Dragunov def. Sam Gradwell
Gradwell was all trash talk from the start and Dragunov completely ignored it, taking him to the mat over and over. Dragunov connected with knee strikes and heavy elbows, and when Gradwell continued to taunt him, a stiff boot to the face. Gradwell caught him in the ropes and set in with kicks to the back of the neck and side of the head. Double underhook suplex. Clubbing blows to the back. Dragunov roared back, literally, with wild elbow strikes and slaps upside the head while maintaining wrist control. Gradwell gave them right back, but got caught with two German suplexes. Dragunov hit a sky high diving senton for a nearfall. He started pummelling the man with nasty elbows until the referee called for the bell.
Dragunov completely snapped after the match, putting Gradwell back in a submission and continuing to beat the hell out of him. Referees pulled him off, but he backed one into the corner and tore at his shirt, screaming in his face until “snapping out of it”. Dragunov tried to apologize to the refs and left freaking out while Gradwell looked on smiling and laughing.

Noam Dar read “reviews” from fans talking about how great he is. He invited Tyler Bate onto the show as his special guest, leading to an awkward conversation about zen. Bate discussed his vegetarian lifestyle and Dar dumped a bunch of broccoli and spinach on him, which he thought was hilarious for some reason. I think the intention was to do some kind of Tim & Eric or Between Two Ferns ironic comedy sort of thing, but it didn’t connect for me at all.

Amir Jordan & Kenny Williams def. Ashton Smith & Oliver Carter
Great fast-paced exchange between Williams and Carter trading pinning combinations and looking for submissions. Smith tagged in and tossed Williams around the ring with ease. Jordan came in and caught him with a few dropkicks, and took the big man down with a flying crossbody from the second rope. He slapped on a side headlock, but Smith easily tossed him into the corner and took turns with his partner clobbering him with clotheslines and heavy body shots. Williams eventually got the hot tag and cleaned house, sending them both to the floor. Jordan and Williams hit stereo suicide dives and a wheelbarrow facebuster/diving senton combo for a very close nearfall. Both teams traded offense but Jordan ended up getting a pin on Oliver Carter with an assist from his partner at ringside.
NXT UK Women’s Championship Match
Kay Lee Ray (c) def. Meiko Satomura
Kay Lee tried to lock up right away and Meiko easily out-grappled her and sent the champion out to the floor. Kay Lee took it personally and went after her with stiff kicks and elbows in the corner. Meiko fired back with body kicks and a spin kick, catching her under the jaw, before locking in an STF. Kay Lee dragged them both across the ring to get to the ropes, and Meiko continued pelting her with kicks all over the body. The champion caught her with a Koji Clutch out of nowhere to turn the tide. Kay Lee transitioned into a body stretch and slowed things down for a beat. She made the mistake of trying to trade kicks with the Japanese legend and got destroyed by a spinning wheel kick and a half dozen more kicks in the corner. Kay Lee rolled out to the floor and baited the challenger into a Hangman’s DDT from the apron. She broke the ref’s count in order to set up for a Gory Bomb on the apron, but Meiko struggled free and hit a Death Valley Driver! This time it was Kay Lee barely making it back into the ring on time. Meiko drilled her in the head with a running knee and walked circles around her, looking for the killing blow. Brainbuster for 1… 2… no. Meiko put her on the second turnbuckle, but Kay Lee surprised her with a Tornado DDT and immediately reapplied the Koji Clutch. Meiko nearly faded but started flailing around with her legs until reaching the bottom rope. Kay Lee climbed to the top rope but Meiko hit her with a bicycle kick to knock her down! Death Valley Driver for 1… 2… still no. This time Meiko climbed the ropes, dropped the champion with a kick to the head, but Kay Lee got her knees up to block a diving splash. Superkick. Gory Bomb. 1… 2… no. A frustrated Kay Lee tried and failed to lift the dead weight of her opponent for another Gory Bomb, so she instead climbed the ropes, taking far too long. Meiko dodges a Swanton Bomb, tried for the Scorpion Kick, Kay Lee blocked it, went for the Gory Bomb, but Meiko countered with Code Blue! Superkick from the champion! Bicycle kick from the challenger! Both women down. Kay Lee definitely pulls her up and delivers one final Gory Bomb to get the job done.
This was a tremendous match, maybe ****1/4 that I can only imagine would have been one of the better WWE matches in many, many years with a building full of rowdy UK fans.
