Usos def. The Colons, Breezango and American Alpha to retain the Tag Titles.

Jinder Mahal def Randy Orton, with help from The Singh Brothers.

**Notes**

The event was sold out, about 12,000 people.

Many people missed Nakamura since he was on the opening match and it was a long process getting into the venue.

The Colons were the hometown baby faces, hitting all their moves and a few false finishes.

New Day and Charlotte were the big absentees.

Overall it was a long but pretty solid show and people went home happy. After tonight you can say Puerto Rico deserves a Raw or Smackdown Live taping. Last televised event here was in 2005.
