Three years since their last show in the Philippines, wrestlers of the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) finally came back to compete in front of their Filipino fans on Friday, September 20, at the Araneta Coliseum. While lacking big names like John Cena and Chris Jericho from their 2016 show, the WWE Smackdown Live contingent in this tour more than made up for it with crowd-pleasing moments and amazing matches.

Aside from the advertised four title matches, the show also saw a very brief title change when EC3 got the surprise pin over R-Truth and won the 24/7 Title, but Truth manage to regain it just minutes later. Presented by Wilbros Live, the three-hour show was capped off by a very solid WWE Title bout between champion Kofi Kingston and Daniel Bryan.
