No contest due to everyone brawling in the ring

Universal Championship: Champion Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman
Roman won by tap out. Afterwards, Jey Uso came out, and Roman tried to convince him to drop out of the match. Uso attacked Roman and was held back by officials and Roman hit him.
To me, it was a somewhat interesting show and not nearly as exciting as a season premiere of any show should be. Good booking, mediocre to bad match endings. Thank God, the main event ended the show on a high note. Roman, Braun and Jey stole the night with good attacks and proper selling. Even PaulHeyman being silent, yet reacting was real good. The family dynamic is working out great between Roman and Jey. So I would have given this show an 8 but decided to give it a 9 based off of a great main event and a great end to the show.
Edit: Ok I forgot about the segment with Daniel Bryan and Seth Rollins which should lead to a great feud. It's another possible family angle but ok let's see how this one turns out.
