WWE Live Event Results: MSG (December 26, 2017)
Reigns vs. Cena, a shocking loss for Finn Balor, steel cage match and more.
WWE holds the Madison Square Garden in a very high regard and how can you not; the MSG is one of the most iconic, if not the most iconic arenas in the world.
So while the superstars on SmackDown continued the build-up for Royal Rumble, the MSG hosted a special Boxing Day Live event featuring all the big names from RAW. You know WWE means business when the card is headlined by Roman Reigns vs John Cena.
That wasn't the only surprise of the night as there was a steel cage title match coupled with 'Woken' Matt Hardy in all its glory. So without further adieu, here are the results and highlights of the stacked show:
#1 Enzo Amore (c) vs Kalisto (WWE Cruiserweight Champion)
The tried and tested Cruiserweight title match opened the show as Kalisto looked to upstage the Bonafide stud. Kalisto and Amore are not known for their chemistry, which is why this was a dampener of an opener.
However, Enzo's mic skills and Kalisto's outrageous ariel abilities ensured this wasn't a bore-fest. Amore retained in the short and sweet encounter while also garnering some crazy heat.
Result: Enzo Amore def. Kalisto
A short segment between Elias and the Club acted as the filler before the next match.
#2 Rhyno, Heath Slater, Apollo Crews, Titus O'Neil and Goldust vs The Revival, Curtis Axel, Bo Dallas and Curt Hawkins
A mammoth 10-man tag team match was up next and it involved the whos' who of RAW's mid-card. Most of these stars aren't even regular fixtures on TV and it's great to see WWE utilize them in some capacity.
The first ever SmackDown Tag Team Champions led the babyfaces to a big win against the heels that also furthered Curt Hawkins' never-ending losing streak. Slater, Ryhno and Goldust were quite over with fans. However, it was a little disheartening to see the Revival in a scattered tag team match rather than being in the tag team titles picture.
A fun match nonetheless.
Result: Rhyno, Slater, Crews, Goldust, and O'Neil def. The Revival, Hawkins, Dallas and Axel.
