WWE live results from Madison Square Garden Submitted by Aaron Rift on 07/08/2017 at 01:04 AM
Thanks to Evan Ginzburg for the following results from Friday night's WWE live event at Madison Square Garden:
1. Shinsuke Nakamura W Dolph Ziggler 3 ¼* Better than expected considering we’ve seen the match ad nauseum and winner was inevitable. Nakamura’s charisma off the charts.
2. R. Truth W Golddust. Short match, abrupt ending, felt flat. 2 ¼*
3. Neville W Cedric Alexander 3* Solid matchup with some excellent moves and spots.
4. Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose W The Miz and Samoa Joe 2 ½*- Nothing special here- Ambrose is doing a lot of comedy spots at this point and feels neutered. That Samoa Joe vs. Rollins was cancelled for THIS was a disservice to the fans.
5. AJ Styles W Kevin Owens US Championship 3 ½*- MSG crowd popped huge for rare house show title change after quality match.
6. Bayley, Sasha Banks & Mickie James W Alexa Bliss, Nia Jax & Emma 2 ½* Standard woman’s match with entrances as long as the bout itself.
7. Finn Balor W Karl Anderson DUD 30 Seconds This would have been a technical clinic in NJPW and was disgracefully rushed through with Anderson offering zero offense. Criminal. I wouldn’t even qualify this as a match. Gallows seconded him believe it or not. Hope they’re making big money in WWE because they’ve been destroyed.
