What happened?

- Bayley defeated Emma to retain the Women's title
- Sami Zayn defeated Manny Andrade

What caught our eye? Sami's advertised for next weekend's Florida shows, but the gang treated this like his goodbye to the 200 seat gyms of the state. He put Manny over after their match, and Finn called him out for a farewell salute after the main in Wauchula.

Nia Jax & Carmella's bout was singled out in live reports as being rough; both the Aries/Blake & Crews/Girard matches got a lot of praise.

What's next? Largo, Venice and a big sold out show in Orlando next Thurs. - Sat. before heading to Mania week!
