Kalisto vs. Titus O’Neil (w/ Apollo Crews)

Result: Kalisto defeated Titus O’Neil via pinfall

Rating: 1.5 out of 5 stars

It’s the rematch we never knew we needed – because we didn’t need it. And if Michael Cole is going to come out and say things like “crunk” and “lit,” I don’t want to live on this planet anymore.

Before we get into the match, let’s talk about the “expansion” of the Titus Brand to include Akira Tozawa (maybe). Is “Titus Brand” just code for “Dragon Gate”? This is starting to get a little ridiculous.

Anyway, the match fit with the theme of the night – short. The good news is it wasn’t as god awful as the first match between these two. The not so good news is it wasn’t much better.

Building a feud on holding the tights is one of the dumbest things I’ve ever heard of. And there have been some dumb feuds in WWE in the past. Sadly, it looks like this is going to keep going until one of two things happens – either Kalisto will inexplicably join the Titus Brand in a “Can’t Beat ‘Em, Join ‘Em” deal, or Crews bails on the Brand – and then spends months feuding with Titus himself.

Cass Attacks Himself To Throw Off Suspicion

As The Miz gets ready to come out for his celebration, we see someone that’s not Enzo Amore laying prone amidst debris in the back. Turns out it’s Cass – plot twist! Enzo notices the gold chain next to Cass and realizes the same one was with his attackers two weeks ago (and, uh, last week?).

Clearly, Cass is just trying to make it seem like there’s another party involved. We saw The Revival backstage when Ambrose snuck back into the building, but it was way too obvious this time.
