Poison Ivy dominated this match. The cover Ivy had on Sombra seemed to wake her up. It wasn’t really back and forth in the traditional sense. Ivy dominated for most of the match, but there were times where Sombra sparked enough of an offense to keep the match going.

I’m not sure if Zamasu was really there. I don’t think he took this match seriously. Master Chief, though, needed this victory. I don’t think he has had much success in the last few years. It’s always nice to see a seasoned veteran make another solid run for a title.
