Nikki Bella vs Carmella in a No Disqualification Match

After the match, Carmella gets on the mic and tells Nikki that score isn’t even near settled from Survivor Series and that she wasn’t the one who attacked her. Carmella informed Nikki and the WWE Universe that she knows who did and it was Nikki’s friend, Natalya.

Winner: Alexa Bliss
AJ Styles (c) vs Dean Ambrose in a Tables, Ladders and Chairs Match for the WWE World Championship
Winner: AJ Styles

Who else loved this pay-per-view? I was completely engrossed with all the matches and as the show progressed, the matches got better. I would rate this pay-per-view a 9 out of 10; although this is one of WWE’s best pay-per-view (if not the best one) this year, the 10 Man Tag Team Match is what prevented this from being a 10/10 rating. There is no doubt in my eyes that The Miz vs Dolph Ziggler in a Ladder Match for the Intercontinental Championship was the best match of the night. Although we had a Chairs Match, a Tables Match and a Tables, Ladders AND Chairs match, their match was undeniably the most physical. They pushed their bodies beyond their limit while filled with passion and determination to become or retain the WWE Intercontinental Championship. Clearly, the better man won. Congratulations, Miz. This was truly one of your best matches and certainly a well-deserved victory.
