WWE Live landed at Madison Square Garden in New York City today for a mostly SmackDown Live show with a few RAW superstars thrown in for good measure. In the most anticipated match of the show, Kevin Owens and Brock Lesnar met in the ring for the first time ever. In today’s main event, Bray Wyatt and John Cena faced off for the WWE World Title.

Elsewhere on the card, Asuka made her main roster debut, filling in for the injured Naomi in a tag match, Dean Ambrose defended his Intercontinental Title, and American Alpha and The Usos faced off for the SmackDown Tag Team Titles. Shane McMahon was on hand to kick the festivities off, and the build continued for his WrestleMania match with AJ Styles.

WWE Live MSG Results

Randy Orton defeated AJ Styles.

Kalisto, Rhyno, and Heath Slater defeated Curt Hawkins and Breezango.

Dolph Ziggler defeated Apollo Crews.

Dean Ambrose defeated The Miz, Baron Corbin, and Luke Harper to retain his Intercontinental Title.

Brock Lesnar defeated Kevin Owens in about a minute or so. Owens got in about two offensive moves (a corner cannonball and a senton), and that was it.

Asuka, Tamina Snuka, Becky Lynch, and Nikki Bella defeated Alexa Bliss, Mickie James, Carmella and Nattie.

American Alpha defeated The Usos to retain their SmackDown Tag Team Titles.

Bray Wyatt defeated John Cena to retain his WWE World Title. Bray was initially counted out, but Shane came out to restart the match, making it a NO DQ, No Count-out match. There were tables; there were chairs. Cena even went after Bray with the guardrail. In the end, Bray Wyatt used his head, and a low blow, to beat Super Cena. Very nice.

    WWE at MSG Live Report Sunday March 12, 2017 3PM
    Attended my first WWE show in probably 4 or 5 years.
    Shane McMahon opens the shows, warmly reminisces about being a kid and running around Madison Square Garden; he actually states that AJ Styles is the best in-ring performer in the WWE. This leads to a brief face to face debate between Shane & AJ. wherein Shane calls for AJ to wrestle Randy Orton in the opening match in an unscheduled bout.
    1. Randy Orton pins AJ Styles. Pleasant surprise and a solid match although you’d expect better from guys of this caliber. 3*
    2. Rhyno, Heath Slater & Kalisto W Breezango & Curt Hawkins. Everybody did their spots, match abruptly ended after about 5 minutes. Pleasant enough but nothing memorable. 2 1/2*
    3. Dolph Ziggler W Apollo Crews. Crowd absolutely dead. Match had zero heat. 2*
    4. Dean Ambrose W Baron Corbin, The Miz, & Luke Harper. Bunch of trademark spots and bad comedy. Disappointing. 2 ½*
    5. Brock Lesnar pins Kevin Owens in about 2 minutes. I wouldn’t even call this a match. Owens jumps him, Brock does a few suplexes and pins him. Rip-off. 2*
    6. Asuka, Tamina, Becky Lynch and Nikki Bella W Alexa Bliss, Mickie James, Natalya & Carmella w James Ellsworth. I’m not a big fan of just throwing a bunch of folk together for the hell of it, and the entrances were longer than the match itself, but not bad for what it was. Asuka is off the charts charismatic/great. 2 ¾*
    7. American Alphas W USO’s Tag Title. Crowd deader than dead. Workmanlike and instantly forgettable 2 1/4*
    8. Bray Wyatt PIN John Cena WWE Championship Match. Great brawl, tons of near pins, and Wyatt is the REAL DEAL- charismatic, can wrestle, great gimmick, totally over with crowd and tremendous brawler. 3 ¾* This match really all I’ll remember of this card years from now.
