Jinder Mahal & Alicia Fox def. Curt Hawkins & Ember Moon
Just one day after Curt Hawkins – who entered with a 230-match losing streak -- was named as the injured Braun Strowman’s replacement in the WWE MMC competition, the unfortunate Superstar’s mistake allowed Jinder Mahal & Alicia Fox to pick up a victory over him and Ember Moon in a win-or-go-home Quarterfinal Match.
Highlights included Moon and Fox starting the bout with a fury of near-falls, Hawkins surprising Mahal with some solid early offense, Hawkins unwisely choosing to take out The Singh Brothers and open the door for Mahal to take charge with a fierce assault, and Moon tagging back in to unleash her rage on Fox.
Just as The Shenom was executing the Eclipse that would have given her team the victory in the final moments, Hawkins unwisely tagged in and attempted to pin Fox himself. His mistake would come back to haunt him after Moon took out The Singh Brothers at ringside and Mahal planted Hawkins with a ring-rattling Khallas for the three-count.
Next week, the MMC Playoffs will see The Miz & Asuka battle the husband/wife team of Jimmy Uso & Naomi as the Quarterfinals continue.
