Bo was out with Curtis Axel, so #SocialOutcasts still exist, at least at international house shows.

Was Sasha ever really injured?

Regardless, she dominated the match to keep the crowd happy, but Charlotte won with roll-up and handful of tights.
Jericho got a big pop, and even the old “England stinks and London is the anus” bit didn’t turn the crowd around:

There’s a lot of Twitter debate on how badly London booed Reigns. If you still find that interesting, there’s lots of material for you under the hashtag. Sounds like it was a good match, though.
KO’s first title defense was successful, ending with this cool sequence:

Afterwards, the champ took both guys finishers and then, after a tense moment, Rollins and Zayn shook hands! FACE TURN IMMINENT (or, you know, not).
