Is Bryan making a epic start as boss? YES!
Hideo Itami def. Cedric Alexander, Mustafa Ali & Jack Gallagher (Fatal-4-Way Elimination Match)
In a chaotic opening contest to crown the No.1 Contender to Neville's Cruiserweight Title at King of the Ring, the 4 men hand picked by new General Manager Daniel Bryan left it all in, out and around the ring. Hideo Itami brought his GTS to hand to everyone, Mustafa Ali brought his passion and dedication. Cedric Alexander brought his PhD in back cracking and Jack Gallagher brought his Gentlemen-hood. After two eliminations, it all came down to Itami and Alexander and the innovator of the "Go To Sleep" gave out two extra ones to pick up the win and is now heading to San Juan, Puerto Rico to challenge for the Cruiserweight Championship.
Pete Dunne def. Johnny Gargano (WWE United Kingdom Championship Match)
In a highly anticipated rematch for the WWE United Kingdom Championship, Johnny Gargano brought the fight to Pete Dunne and "The Bruiserweight" brought his A-Game as well. Nearfalls, a massive Superplex from the turnbuckle to the floor. Multiple bitter-ends and submissions later and it was a bloodied and battered Pete Dunne who walked away with his second WWE United Kingdom Title and following the match, in a shocking turn of fate - Dunne was humbled and shaking hands with "Johnny Wrestling" - earning the respect of the former champion as well as the WWE Universe, but...
The worse was yet to come when Moustache Mountain and Pete Dunne's fellow WWE UK competitors invaded the show and targeted Johnny Gargano with multiple step-up Enzuguris and a Tiger Bomb. The biggest question is a simple one - Why? Even the new UK Champion was left with a confused look on his face.
