WWE Live results from New York City, New York at Madison Square Garden on 12/26/19:
WWE Raw Tag Team Champions The War Raiders won a 3-Way Match over The Street Profits… Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson.
Drew McIntyre pinned No Way Jose after the Claymore Kick in a just a few minutes.
Andrade won the WWE US Title from Rey Misterio. Misterio came flying off the ropes with the splash attempt after the 619 set up but Andrade got his knees up to block it and then followed up with the hammerlock DDT for the pin. Zelina Vega was with Andrade as usual but didn’t play a factor in the finish.
Misterio cut a clsssy promo after the match and said he didn’t win but being in front of the crowd was a great present. He wished everyone a Happy New Year.
Randy Orton pinned AJ Styles after an RKO as Styles was on the top rope trying to go for the Phenomenal Forearm. The OC ran down to try to get involved in the match but The Viking Raiders made the save and stopped them. Orton’s leg was wrapped in white tape and Styles worked over it for several minutes of the match.
The Triple Threat Steel Cage Match is next so there’s a bit a break as the cage lowers. It’s Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch vs. Asuka vs. Charlotte Flair. Originally this cage match was supposed to be Women’s Tag Team Champions Asuka and Kairi Sane vs. Lynch and Flair but Sane has not been cleared to compete after an apparent injury at TLC.
Lynch pinned Flair with an inside cradle as Flair went for the Figure Eight. Asuka was knocked down and couldn’t break up the pin in time when Lynch pushed Flair into her during an earlier Figure Eight try. Flair speared them both at the same time during the match, but instead of going out the door, she went up to the top rope to do a moonsault on them both and they got their knees up in time to stop it.
Lynch took plenty of time to take pictures with fans around cage side after the match.
Intermission and I’m told this is a good show so far. People wrote in asking why it wasn’t on WWE Network. I can only assume costs of going live or they didn’t want to risk hurting the live gate attendance if people could watch at home.
The Singh Brothers faced R-Truth in a 2 on 1 match for the 24/7 Title. Samir Singh pinned R-Truth after a Demolition-style double team finisher to win the title. Sunil Singh then pinned his own brother to win it when Samir had his back turned to celebrate. The Brothers argued with each other. Truth recovered, shoved them into each other, and rolled up Sunil for the pin to win the title back.
Alister Black pinned Buddy Murphy after The Black Mass.
Lana and Lashley are out. It’s supposed to be Lashley vs. Rusev in a No Holds Barred Match next.
And no! In the same deal they have been doing at house shows, Lana cut a promo and said she put another restraining order on Rusev. They do the couple in love routine and start to leave the ring then Ricochet came out to challenge Lashley to a match.
Ricochet pinned Lashley after escaping delayed suplex attempt. Lana was ejected from ringside before the finish after getting on the ring and taking off her shoe to try to use as a weapon.
Seth Rollins vs. Kevin Owens in a No Holds Barred Match is next.
Rollins cut a heel promo before the match. Owens said Rollins changed and became a jackass.
Rollins got the pin after interference from AOP and a curb stomp. Samoa Joe made the save after the match with a kendo stick on AOP and Owens gave Rollins a stunner.
Pretty good brawl main event. They used several chairs and tables as some of the weapons. Owens gave Rollins a pop up powerbomb on the steel ring steps that were brought in the ring.
They will be back at MSG on 3/22/20.
