WWE Live Event: Strasbourg results 13th November, 2016
The WWE Raw Live event was a success. A rare spectacle of the French fans.
WWE hosted their RAW exclusive Live event on Sunday, in Strasbourg, France at the Zenith De Strasbourg Arena. The event advertised two title matches, with Kevin Owens’ bout with Seth Rollins for the WWE Universal title in a street fight, grabbing the spotlight. The event also featured a body slam match between WWE giants Big Show and Braun Strowman.
So without further ado, let us check out how the event unfolded.
#1 Big Cass (with Enzo) defeated Rusev (with Lana) (Singles match)
The match that started the live event did not last long, it was concluded within six minutes from the ringing of the bell. The short-lived match was a typical bout that featured a show of strength, other than that there was nothing that stood out. Enzo and Big Cass got a good pop and Lana was smoking hot as usual.
#2 Neville, Golden Truth, and Darren Young defeated Bo Dallas, The Shining Stars, and Titus O’Neil. (Eight-man tag team match)
The Golden Truth were the highlight of the match; their hilarious antics entertained the crowd. It was a kind of match that can be boring to watch on television but can give you a good time if you are present at the arena.
#3 Braun Strowman defeated Big Show (Body Slam challenge)
Witnessing the clash of the two giants in the ring was a spectacle in itself. Apart from that, it was a pretty boring match. Big Show got a huge pop from the crowd, which is indicative of his widespread popularity in France. Overall it was a pretty forgettable match, one that was neither good nor bad. This could also be an indication of Big Show being Strowman’s next opponent on the main roster.
#4 Sami Zayn defeated Chris Jericho (Singles match)
Chris Jericho is on a roll; this is unarguably his best run with WWE in recent history. The match in itself was a perfect combination of wrestling and storytelling. The underdog baby face Sami Zayn finished the match with a Blue Thunder Bomb, he even spoke French a couple of times during the match. The moment that stood out for me was when Jericho declared that France is not on his ‘list’, just because they don't deserve the honour. Crazy stuff! Hats off to you Y2J!
