WWE hosted their recent SmackDown exclusive Live event on Friday in Cardiff, Wales at the Motorpoint Arena, as a part of their European tour. The card boasted of nine well-executed bouts, with The Lunatic Fringe Dean Ambrose taking on The Phenomenal AJ Styles for his WWE Championship as the main event. James Ellsworth also made a ringside appearance for this match.
Let us take a look at how the event unfolded, with a brief analysis and results for the entire card.

#3 Baron Corbin defeated Jack Swagger (Singles match)
#4 Nikki Bella & Naomi defeated Carmella & Natalya (Tag team match)

WWE Intercontinental Champion retained the title over The Miz, an interference by Maryse could not save Miz. The General Manager of SmackDown Live Daniel Bryan banished Maryse from the ringside after her infringement in the match. The founder of the Yes movement later celebrated Showoff’s victory with him in the post- match credits.
