A.J. Styles did work the WWE house show last night in Utica so the original reports he was going to rest up until the PPV ended up being inaccurate.
He worked against Roman Reigns in a preview for Sunday’s show. The house show match ended with Reigns winning via DQ due to outside interference of The Club, leading to the Usos making the save.
Styles is advertised for Reading, PA tonight before the PPV in Newark, NJ on Sunday.
Reigns is advertised to headline in Albany tonight so they’ll be facing different opponents.
Styles hadn’t done a match since injuring his ankle on May 9 but he was physically active on Raw and Smackdown, in shooting angles for tomorrow Extreme rules PPV main event.
Dolph Ziggler beat Bo Dallas with a super kick, Dallas was with Heath Slater and got the crowd heated early cause he kept rolling out of the ring and running around with Slater.
The Shining Stars came out and cut a promo on Utica, they beat the bizarre pairing of Titus O’Neil and Sin Cara. Titus took the pin. Shining stars used Kronus and Ssaturn’s total elimination as the finisher.
Big Cass beat Devon with Bubba Ray ringside. Bubba tried to get involved but Cass got the clean pin
Usos beat Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson in a snoozer.
Charlotte over Becky Lynch in a women’s title match. Charlotte won with feet on the ropes. Match of the night.
Sami Zayn beat Kevin Owens. Owens worked the crowd to perfection. Even getting out of the ring and cutting a promo mid match and then starting down a guy in the front row for the entire match, yelling at him.
Roman Reigns and A.J. styles ended in a DQ when The Club interfered. The Usos out for the save. Again. Making the club look week but whatever.
Overall good show, Shining Stars match was the worst. They did not get over and the team of Titus and Sin Cara made no sense. The match was sloppy too
Cass is a budding star. Crowd loves him. He has the look and size
Reigns was booed massively.
Owens was the star, the women stole the show. Sounds like a routine house show cause it was.
