WWE was live from the Five Flags Center in Dubuque, Iowa and it was the SmackDown roster that was on display to entertain the fans. WWE returned to Dubuque for the first time in 7 years with their last appearance there being in 2009. Here are the results from the Live Event in Dubuque:
#1 The Miz vs. Apollo Crews
While The Miz is seen feuding with Dolph Ziggler on SmackDown Live, he came up against Apollo Crews at the live event. The Miz’s wife, Maryse, was ejected half way through the match for interfering – a common scene these days. It was Crews who registered the win over The Miz after nailing the Spin-Out Powerbomb.
Result: Apollo Crews defeats The Miz via pinfall
#2 8-Man Tag Team Match: American Alpha (Chad Gable and Jason Jordan) and The Hype Bros (Mojo Rowley and Zack Ryder) vs. The Ascension (Viktor and Konnor) and The Vaudevillains
The SmackDown Live tag-teams that are not in the title picture were seen competing against one another. It was American Alpha and The Hype Bros who beat the team of The Ascension and The Vaudevillains after Jason Jordan and Chad Gable nailed the Grand Amplitude on Simon Gotch before rolling him up for the 3-count.
Result: American Alpha and The Hype Bros defeat The Vaudevillains and The Ascension
#3 Handicap Match: Becky Lynch and Naomi vs. Natalya, Alexa Bliss and Carmella
In a 3 on 2 Handicap match, it was the team of SmackDown Live women’s champion Becky Lynch and Naomi that came out victorious against Natalya, Alexa Bliss and The Princess of Staten Island, despite the latter team having the numerical advantage.
The weekend saw the return of The Irish Lass Kicker to in-ring action after having missed out on it for the past 2 weeks having suffered an injury just prior to WWE No Mercy. The reigning Champion made Natalya submit to the Disarm-her.
Result: Becky Lynch and Naomi defeat Alexa Bliss, Natalya and Carmella via submission
#4 Kane vs. Bray Wyatt
Kane taking on The Eater of Worlds has become a recurring theme of Live Events off late. The Big Red Machine has got the better of Bray on numerous occasions recently and it was no different last night at the Five Flags Center as Kane reversed a Sister Abigail from Wyatt into a ChokeSlam before pinning him for the win.
Result: Kane defeats Bray Wyatt via pinfall
Kane and Randy Orton have teamed up against Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper in recent weeks, and while The Viper was not present for the Live Event, Harper was and he duly interfered during the course of the match. After the match, Wyatt and Harper double teamed to attack Kane, who was left helpless against the duo.
