WWE Live Event Results: Birmingham, England (November 7, 2017)
Kurt Angle wrestles his first live event match for eleven years!
The next stop on the WWE's tour of the UK was Birmingham, England with the Superstars of Monday Night RAW rolling in the day after that memorable episode of Monday Night RAW in Manchester, England, and I was lucky enough to be in attendance.
The Bar had just beaten The Shield to win the Tag-Team belts, The New Day interfered and the Survivor Series teams added more Superstars. There was so much to be excited about for this house show.
But perhaps the biggest thing to be excited about was Kurt Angle's return to wrestling at a WWE house show after eleven years away, and the fact that this would be his only appearance on the tour.
#1 Finn Balor vs Bray Wyatt
There would be no Demon vs Sister Abigail in Birmingham, but I'll admit that it was nice to see Balor and Wyatt go at it again following their TLC match being cancelled. even if we didn't get the body paint and cross-dressing.
This was a surprising first match of the evening, with Bray Wyatt playing up to the crowd by constantly leaving the ring, leading to Balor grabbing a microphone and calling Wyatt a coward. This causes Wyatt to return to the ring and the match finally started.
The pair exchange near falls until Bray Wyatt is able to attempt Sister Abigail. However, Balor is one step ahead and counters into his string of moves leading to a Coup De Grace to pick up the victory.
Result: Finn Balor def. Bray Wyatt
