WWE Live Event results - Leeds, 6th November 2016
Another entertaining RAW Live Event from UK is in the books
Following their show in Minehead, the RAW roster’s next stop was Leeds, England. The show took place at the First Direct in Leeds, West Yorkshire. The near 14,000-capacity arena had the top section tarped off with curtains,with the open part filled with the fans.
The show had a bunch of exciting matches and moments for the UK fans. Here are the results and highlights from the event:
#1 New Day (Big E and Kofi Kingston) vs. Enzo Amore and Big Cass vs. Cesaro and Sheamus vs. Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows (RAW Tag Team Championship match)
The show got off to a hot start with a title match with the insanely over team of New Day in action. Enzo Amore and Big Cass also got the crowd going into the match, which was said to be a very entertaining one.
Cesaro, at one point, hit consecutive Cesaro Swings, on Karl Anderson, Luke Gallows, Big E and Kofi Kingston. The challengers were unsuccessful, however, as Big E and Kofi Kingston retained their championships after hitting the Midnight Hour on Karl Anderson.
Result: The New Day (Big E and Kofi Kingston) def. Enzo Amore and Big Cass, Cesaro and Sheamus, and Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows via pinfall.
#2 Bo Dallas vs Neville
The following match saw Bo Dallas face off against Neville. Neville came out to an incredibly underwhelming reaction from the crowd, despite the show being in his home country of England.The match was identical to the one these two had in Minehead.
Dallas dominated Neville for the entire match before Neville made a comeback to hit The Red ArrowDallas for the win.
Result: Neville def. Bo Dallas via pinfall
#3 Goldust, R Truth and Darren Young vs Shining Stars (Epico and Primo) and Titus O’Neil
This match started off with a noticeable botch during the introduction. JoJo announced Darren Young as being accompanied to the ring by his mentor and WWE Hall of Famer Bob Backlund, even though Backlund wasn’t there.
Another fun match for the crowd with a lot of comedy involved. Eventually, the babyface team of Golden Truth and Darren Young picked up the win.
Result: Goldust, R Truth, and Darren Young vs Shining Stars (Epico and Primo) and Titus O’Neill.
#4 Sami Zayn vs Chris Jericho
Up next was the match between Chris Jericho and Sami Zayn. Chris Jericho was in a foul mood, to begin with, as he tweeted this out before the show:
Security guard in #WWELeeds wouldn’t let me in the dressing room, because I didn’t have a pass. Hey security guard….YOU JUST MADE THE LIST!— Chris Jericho (@IAmJericho) November 6, 2016
Jericho was the most over wrestler on tonight’s show. He cut a great pre-match heel promo and berated the Leeds crowd. The crowd wanted Jericho to put them on the ‘List of Jericho’. Jericho, being the smarmy heel he is, refused. Sami Zayn secured the victory following the Blue Thunder Bomb.
Result: Sami Zayn def. Chris Jericho via pinfall
#5 Sin Cara vs Curtis Axel
Sin Cara faced Curtis Axel in the next match. Compared to the Minehead event, Cara got no response from the Leeds crowd. Also, Sin Cara reportedly introduced a new entrance theme music. The Luchador was able to get the pinfall victory after a Swanton Bomb.
Result: Sin Cara def. Curtis Axel via pinfall
On a side note, it’s being reported that Chris Jericho and Sin Cara got into a backstage fight at the event.
