WWE Live Event Results: Shield gets an honorary member, UK Championship defended (May 11, 2019)
The Utility Arena in Newcastle, England, hosted the latest WWE live event. Courtesy of the newly introduced 'wildcard rule', the event featured superstars from both RAW and SmackDown. The fans in attendance noted this to be a pretty successful show with almost full attendance.
The event featured three Championship matches, including the NXT United Kingdom Championship. Other highlights of the show include a mini-reunion of the Shield and a tag team match involving the WWE Hall of Famer, Beth Phoenix.
The results of the event are provided below.
#1 Beth Phoenix and Natalya vs Ruby Riott and Liv Morgan
The fans were vocal for Beth and Natalya throughout the match. It was a fun yet solid opener to get the crowd excited.
Natalya hit the double Sharpshooter on Riott and Morgan to pick up the win for her team.

#2 Mojo Rawley vs Apollo Crews
This was a short match. Crews got the win after pinning Rawley following a Standing Moonsault. There was almost no reaction for Rawley.

Post-match, The Revival made their way out and attacked Apollo Crews. Then they cut a promo to mock the fans but got quickly interrupted by Black and Ricochet.
#3 The Revival vs Aleister Black and Ricochet
Aleister Black got a pretty decent response from the fans and so did Ricochet.
This was reportedly the best match of the night with plenty of back-and-forth action. Black hit the Black Mass to pick up the win.

#4 WALTER(c) vs Pete Dunne for the WWE United Kingdom Championship
For the first time during the ongoing European tour, the UK title was defended at a live event.
The fans were really behind Dunne throughout the match. It was a pretty good encounter but shorter when compared to their previous matches. Walter picked up the win following the Powerbomb.
