WWE champ Kofi Kingston retained his title in a double countout decision with challenger Randy Orton earlier in the card.

U.S. champ AJ Styles had a successful defense against former champ Ricochet.

WWE’s two women’s champions – Bayley and Becky Lynch – each walked out winners, against, respectively, Ember Moon and Natalya.

WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus lost in her return against former women’s champ Charlotte Flair.

Former WWE champ Bray Wyatt won in his long-awaited return against former Universal champ Finn Balor on the undercard.
