AJ Styles vs. Sami Zayn vs. Baron Corbin from WWE 2017

The winner of this match would get a US Championship match.

This was a very strong TV main event for #SDLive. All three guys were working their asses off, and they also managed to not let triple threat tropes overwhelm the match. (In fact, they had a number of creative moments that took advantage of having three guys in the ring.) Between those key elements and the hot crowd, this was just a delight to watch.

On top of all those things in the bubble, this main event succeeded on a bunch of larger levels as well. This match continued to established Baron as a really bright prospect for the company. It was a great introduction for Sami Zayn to #SDLive. It also continued to let everyone know that AJ Styles (who was flying all over the fucking place) is the very best wrestler that the company has had on their roster in quite a bit. AJ pinned Sami after the springboard forearm. (***3/4)
