Holding a big match after SmackDown Live and 205 Live goes off air every week has become somewhat a tradition in recent times, however, this week’s episode of the show had more than that.

While people in attendance are used to seeing a Championship match almost every other week after SmackDown Live goes off air, this week they got to see 2 title bouts, one before and one after the show.

The first match which took place before the cameras started rolling saw the SmackDown Women’s Champion Carmella defending her title against Becky Lynch.

Their match went on for several minutes and it was said to be a decent bout with some good back and forth action. Carmella was victorious in the end after she pinned Becky via a roll up.

The second match of the night saw AJ Styles defending the WWE Championship against Shinsuke Nakamura after the Blue Branded show went off air.

However, unlike the first dark match, this bout didn’t have a clear winner. According to report, the match was interrupted by the Bar not too long after it began.

The former Raw Tag Champs tried to attack the WWE Champion which resulted in Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson coming out and making the save. The segment ended with The Club standing tall in the ring.
