WWE Live event results and thoughts - Lincoln, NE (February 3, 2018)
2/3rds of The Shield were part of the main event, in a handicap match.
The WWE's Monday Night Raw roster headed to my town of Lincoln, Nebraska, as part of the Road To WrestleMania Tour. I was able to be in attendance, enjoying the action from a suite at the Pinnacle Bank Arena.
The WWE Raw roster is currently preparing for the last pay per view before WrestleMania as the Elimination Chamber takes place on February 25th from Paradise, Nevada just outside of Las Vegas. Both the men and (for the first time) the women will have matches inside the Chamber.
The live event from Saturday had a total of eight matches, and while no championships were defended, there was definitely a lot of action and some good lengthy matches. There were roughly 6000 people in attendance, and they were very vocal throughout the entire evening.
#1 - Finn Balor vs. Bo Dallas
The evening started with Finn Balor coming out to a great ovation from those in attendance. Miz's music started up next with the Miztourage logo appearing on the mini-WWE Live TitanTron, and Bo Dallas would make his way out to the ring.
Dallas would get some good heat from the WWE Universe when he would try to walk out on the match after Balor attempted a Coup de Grace. Balor would get on the mic and said that the Balor Club of Lincoln, Nebraska didn't pay their hard earned money to see a coward.
Dallas would get back in the ring and take control for a short amount of time before Balor would land the Coup de Grace to end the first match.
Result - Finn Balor defeated Bo Dallas
