WWE Live Event Results: Minneapolis, MN (March 9th, 2018)
WWE stopped in 'The Beast Incarnate's' hometown of Minneapolis for a stacked live show that had the Universal Champion in action.
Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins teamed up once again while the Raw Women's Championship was on the line in a triple threat match.
Braun Strowman was at his destructive best on a night that was missing the presence of Finn Balor, Asuka, Matt Hardy and Nia Jax. Despite the no-show from advertised names, WWE made up for it with a Champion vs. Champion clash. So without further adieu, here are the results and highlights of the show:
#1 Braun Strowman vs Elias
'The Drifter' opened the show and worked the crowd as he's grown accustomed to on a weekly basis on Raw. Elias' performance was cut short by 'The Monster Among Men', who unsurprisingly got a monstrous pop.
Strowman dominated all throughout the short yet eventful match and got the win with the Running Powerslam. Now that's how you begin a show, with your most over Superstar.

#2 Cedric Alexander vs. TJ Perkins
WWE ditched the usual tradition of having a multi-man Cruiserweight match for a classic one-on-one bout. Alexander and Perkins put on a fast-paced match but the fans weren't all too invested.
Alexander beat the former Cruiserweight Champion with the Lumbar Check.
