One of the major highlights of this house show was the WWE Universal Championship match, where the Champion Brock Lesnar defended the title against Kane. Also, there was not a single women's match on the show.

The detailed results have been provided below:

#1 Matt Hardy vs Bray Wyatt

The event started with a clash between the Woken warrior and the Eater of Worlds. Hardy and Wyatt fought back-and-forth, much like their battle at the 25th Anniversary show of RAW.

However this time, Matt Hardy successfully pinned the former WWE Champion following the Twist of Fate.

Result: Matt Hardy defeated Bray Wyatt

#2 Cedric Alexander vs Drew Gulak

The second match of the live event featured the Cruiserweight talents.

According to the fans in attendance, Gulak and Alexander delivered an impressive and entertaining contest. Alexander made sure that he'll be heading into the Royal Rumble with some momentum as he picked up the win following a Lumbar Check on Gulak.

Result: Cedric Alexander defeated Drew Gulak

#3 Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows vs Sheamus and Cesaro vs Heath Slater and Rhyno

The RAW Tag team Championships were not defended during this live event, so these three teams fought each other in a non-title triple threat match.

The hard-hitting battle came to an end when #1 contenders for the title, Sheamus and Cesaro, pinned Slater to pick up the win.

Result: Sheamus and Cesaro defeated Heath Slater and Rhyno, and Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows

#4 Kane vs Brock Lesnar(c) [WWE Universal Championship match]

For the first time in WWE history, Kane faced Brock Lesnar in a singles match in this event and that also for the WWE Universal Championship.

The match was short. Kane pulled out some early offence but soon 'The Beast Incarnate' gained the upper hand. A few German suplexes and one F-5 later, Lesnar pinned 'The Big Red Machine' Kane.

Result: Brock Lesnar defeated Kane to retain the WWE Universal Championship

After the match, the other contender for the WWE Universal Championship match at Royal Rumble, Braun Strowman, made his way out and laid out both Lesnar and Kane with destructive Powerslams.

#5 Curt Hawkins vs Goldust

Another short match. Goldust dominated throughout and quickly pinned Hawkins to earn the victory. Unfortunately, the losing streak of Curt Hawkins remains alive.

Result: Goldust defeated Curt Hawkins

#6 Elias vs Finn Balor

Balor interrupted the singing performance of Elias, leading up to this match. The two delivered an amazing wrestling contest but the fans were in favour of Balor throughout the match.

Towards the end, Elias countered the Coup De Grace into the Drift Away and got the three count over the former WWE Universal Champion.

Result: Elias defeated Finn Balor

#7 Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Jason Jordan vs The Miz, Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel

In the main event, the RAW Tag team Champions and the former Intercontinental Champion Roman Reigns faced the brand new Champion The Miz and his Miztourage.

All the six athletes fought back-and-forth and put on one of the best matches of the night. Reigns earned the win for his team.

Result: Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Jason Jordan defeated Curtis Axel, The Miz and Bo Dallas
