Smackdown Tag Team Title Match: The Usos vs Rusev & Shinsuke Nakamura vs Aleister Black & Ricochet vs The Bar

Tom points out that the Usos are the first team in WWE history to walk into Wrestlemania as champions three years in a row.  Black and Jey start, but then Sheamus fights his way in and goes to work on Black.  Rusev tags in and turns Black inside out with a clothesline, then Nakamura tags in to dish out some punishment of his own.  Everyone else has a chance to tag in and out until the Bar decimates practically everyone.  Cesaro big swings Ricochet while Sheamus gives his forearm barrages to all the other opponents, then Cesaro gets Ricochet in the Sharpshooter.  Another Pier Six brawl breaks out as everyone takes turns coming in to hit spots on each other, then they hit the Tower of Doom spot, and Ricochet somehow lands on his feet and rolls through to survive.  Ricochet hits a 630 on Sheamus and makes a cover, but four guys come in to break the fall at 2.  Back to hitting spots, and the Usos hit the Double Us for the win.

Winners: Jimmy & Jey Uso

This was mostly a spotfest, but fun to watch.

We take a look back at last night's Hall of Fame ceremony, then the inductees come out to wave to the fans before we go to our next match...

Falls Count Anywhere: The Miz vs Shane McMahon

Miz goes right after Shane, and Shane runs and makes a grab at Mr Miz to lure Miz in and nail him.  Shane bashes Miz over the head with a monitor and lays him on the broadcast table, but Mr Miz runs out of the crowd to block Shane.  Shane comes down and goads Mr Miz into the ring, shows him how to hold his fists up, and proceeds to beat the crap out of him.  Miz comes in and fights Shane off, and stops to get help for his dad.  Once Mr Miz is attended to, Miz goes out into the crowd to chase Shane, ram him into an LED board, then Shane gets Miz's back and fires a bunch of kidney punches off before hitting a DDT on the stage for 2.  Miz dropkicks Shane off the stage and into a barricade, and he starts stomping on Shane's bad leg.  They go up into a balcony where Miz throws Shane through a table and covers for 2, then they go to a different balcony where Miz knocks Shane over the railng, where he bounces off the roof of a golf cart and hits the concrete floor below.  Miz is just brutalizing Shane here, following him up into a production rig and hitting a Skull Crushing Finale on the hard wooden platform, but only gets 2.  Further into the production setup they go, where Shane throws something at Miz to knock him down, then he climbs to the very top platform to get away.  Miz chases him to the very edge of the platforn, Shane begs off, gets down on one knee, and Miz just fires right hands into his face, then SUPERPLEXES SHANE OFF THE PLATFORM!!!!  They landed on a crash pad, but it was still a good 20 foot drop.  Shane also happened to land slightly on top of Miz, so the ref counts 3 and awards the match to Shane.

Winner: Shane McMahon

Great finish to a great match!  I loved the story they told here.  The replays of the finish are insane to watch.

Paige joins Cole and Renee for our next match...

Women's Tag Team Title Match: Sasha Banks & Bayley vs Beth Phoenix & Natalya vs Nia Jax & Tamina vs The Iiconics

Tamina cleans house early on, but then Beth Phoenix comes in to shut her down, and all heck breaks loose with everyone brawling in the ring.  We settle down a bit as Sasha and Bayley trap Peyton Royce, who lays Sasha out with a spinkick for 2.  Sasha gets a rollup on Royce for 2, then Bayley tags in for a double team dropkick on Royce.  Beth comes in and goes down thanks to the champs, with Bayley hitting a sliding clothesline.  Billie tags herself in and unloads on Beth with right hands before covering for 2.  Iiconics try to double suplex Beth, but she turns it around and suplexes both of them, then tagging Nattie in for the Hart Foundation.  Natalya covers for 2, but then Bayley spins Sasha into the Bank Statement on Beth.  Beth rolls through and powers Sasha up into the Glam Slam, but Sasha rolls through and Nattie is back in.  She puts the double Sharpshooter on both Sasha and Bayley, Tamina breaks that up, then Tamina and Beth start brawling until Nia Jax knocks Beth into next week.  Double headbutt lays the Glamazon out, the Iiconics go after Nia and Tamina and eat stereo Samoan drops, then they start crushing Sasha and Bayley.  They go to the top, but Beth shoves Nia off the top and to the floor.  Nattie and Beth take Tamina out, Sasha takes Beth and Nattie out, then Sasha rolls Beth in, tags Bayley, and Bayley hits the top rope elbow before Sasha hits the frogsplash for 2.  Nattie hits a sitout powerbomb on Sasha, Beth gets Bayley in the double chickenwing, and she hits a top rope Glam Slam on Bayley for...nothing!  Peyton tosses Beth to the floor and Billie covers Bayley for the win.

Winners and NEW Women's Tag Team Champions: The Iiconics
Terrific match and a great finish, and you can tell that both Billie and Peyton are visibly emotional about this moment.  Good for them, and great showing by Beth, who looked like her last match was yesterday.
