WWE Live Event Results: Winnipeg, Canada (8/12/18)
As part of their on-going series of Live Events, WWE headed to Winnipeg, Canada this week for yet another exciting house show featuring several stars from the blue brand of SmackDown Live.
Despite the omission of WWE Champion, Daniel Bryan and SmackDown Women's Champion, Becky Lynch from the card, the likes of AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, Charlotte Flair, and The Bar definitely did manage to put up an outstanding show on the night.
Below are the results from WWE's recent Live Event in Winnipeg, Canada:
#1. The Bar (Cesaro and Sheamus) vs The New Day- SmackDown Live Tag Team Championships
Ahead of their clash against The New Day and The Usos at TLC, the team of Sheamus and Cesaro gave us a little preview of things to expect come TLC, as the current SmackDown Live Tag Champs were on course to defend their straps against long-term rivals The New Day.
New Day, as usual, got a pretty strong babyface reaction and the opposite applied for The Bar, who successfully went on to beat the New Day to retain the tag titles.
Result: The Bar defeated The New Day
#2. Charlotte Flair vs Asuka
Next up, we had a WrestleMania 33 rematch between Charlotte Flair and Asuka. Considered as two of SmackDown Live's top talents right now (alongside Women's Champion, Becky Lynch, of course), Asuka and Flair will challenge for Lynch's SmackDown Women's Title on Sunday at TLC.
However, prior to their historic match at TLC, Flair and Asuka gave us a little preview of things to come. Charlotte Flair got a good reaction on the night and used the momentum to defeat Asuka.
Following the match, Flair talked about regaining the Women's Title at TLC and then hugged it out with Asuka. The two will meet in another highly awaited rematch this week on SmackDown.
Result: Charlotte Flair defeated Asuka
