WWE was back in their spiritual home, Madison Square Garden, last night and for the most part, the show did not disappoint. A number of top WWE stars like Brock Lesnar, John Cena and AJ Styles were on the card.

Let's head straight to the results.

Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens attack AJ Styles

The card was supposed to kick off with Owens and Zayn teaming up to face Styles and Nakamura but that wasn't meant to be.

Zayn and Owens destroyed AJ Styles on SmackDown earlier this week and their streak of destruction continued as they jumped AJ Styles and hammered him. Styles sold the injury and had to be helped to the back.

Shinsuke Nakamura vs Kevin Owens

Owens and Nakamura had a fantastic match until Owens realized he couldn't win on his own on this night. Zayn interfered causing the DQ and the two laid a beating on Nakamura till Styles ran out of the back to chase them off.

Cedric Alexander vs Drew Gulak

We got action from the Cruiserweight Division next and it didn't disappoint. Two people who have been on a roll of late are Drew Gulak and Cedric Alexander and their match didn't disappoint.

Gulak tried his best to ground Cedric throughout the match but it wasn't enough, Cedric proved to be too good in the end and continued his march to WrestleMania with another win another his belt.

Asuka vs Mandy Rose

A mismatch on paper turned out to be a mismatch inside the ring. Asuka made light work of Absolution member Mandy Rose, getting her to tap in short notice to the Asuka Lock.

Bray Wyatt vs Matt Hardy

Bray Wyatt and Matt Hardy faced off ahead of the Ultimate Deletion and this round of the feud went to the "Eater of Worlds" who hit the 'Woken' one with a Sister Abigail to pick up the win.

The Bar (C) vs The New Day vs Titus Worldwide vs Gallows and Anderson (for the RAW Tag-Team Championships)

The New Day competed for a RAW title but they couldn't win it. The Bar continued their hot streak by retaining their titles.

Brock Lesnar (C) vs Kane vs Braun Strowman (for the WWE Universal Championship)

Like their match at the Royal Rumble, this one ended with Brock pinning Kane after an F5.

After the match, The Bar tried to blindside Braun Strowman. Unsurprisingly, Braun destroyed Sheamus and Cesaro, powerslamming them through tables.

Alexa Bliss (C) vs Sasha Banks vs Bayley (for the WWE RAW Women's Championship)

After a fast-paced match, Alexa Bliss retained her title by pinning Bayley. One particular highlight of the match was Sasha Banks hitting a 619.

After the match, Bliss and Mickie James were in the process of beating up Sasha Banks when Nia Jax came out. Bliss tried to hug Nia but Jax didn't fall for it. She then hit James with a Samoan Drop and stood tall.

John Cena and Nikki Bella vs Elias and Sonya Deville

This match got a good reception and at one point there were "Let's go Cena, Nikki too" chants. The highlight of the match was when Sonya Deville knocked Cena down with a right hand.

Cena and Nikki hit stereo 5 knuckle shuffles followed by their finishers to pick up the win.

Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Finn Balor vs Miz and the Miztourage

An uneven match on paper was an uneven match inside the ring as Reigns, Rollins and Balor brushed aside their competition to pick up an easy win.
