Pretty much 90% of the match was Big E v The Miz, and I thought the female competitors should have had more time.

Carmella was made to look pretty weak, tapping out to the armbar, which was one of the few moves Asuka hit on her.

Asuka’s undefeated streak remains intact, will be interesting to see how long that continues.
