WWE Live Event Results (10/13/17) - Saskatoon, SK

Thanks to rajah.com reader mth for sending this in: The RAW roster was in town last night, Oct. 13, 2017 and my wife and I attended. Results were as follows: Cruiserweight Championship Match - Kalisto vs. Enzo Amore Enzo did a good pre-match promo insulting the city and the crowd. Match was decent enough. Enzo got good boos during the match and folks got into the "Lucha Lucha!" chant for Kalisto's come backs. Kalisto won with Solida Del Sol. Goldust & Darren Young vs. Curtis Axel & Curt Hawkins Hawkins got on the mic before the match to introduce his partner since Bo Dallas was not there. I forgot Young was even active so he was a bit of a surprise. Goldust was the only one everyone really cared about in this and he got good cheers/chants throughout. There was a hilarious part where DY went on an inverted atomic drop spree on the heel team, hitting both of them with a few, then turned and almost gave one to the ref before Goldie jumped int o stop him, then they did them in stereo to the bad guys. Face team won when Goldie hit the Director's Cut. Elias vs. R-Truth Elias did a prematch song/promo that was terrific, changing the lyrics of Oasis' 'Wonderwall' to insult Truth and the city. Great line about how we suck and he wants to punch us all in the face. Then he said we interrupted so he had to sing that line a second time. Truth came out rapping his theme and also tweaked the lyrics for the situation. Match was fine, Elias won with Drift Away. Tag Team Championship Match - Ambrose & Rollins vs. The Bar vs. Rhyno & Slater This was good stuff. Started off back and forth for awhile and picked up at the end with a quick pace and flurry of big moves including a Brogue Kick, Rollins' Knee, and Dirty Deeds. Champs retained. Sasha Banks & Dana vs. Alexa Bliss & Alicia Fox (Special Referee: Emma) I was hoping for Bayley and Jax as Banks and Bliss' parnters so Brooks and Fox were a bit disappointing but I was not as disappointed as the little boy I saw bawling after the show because Bayley wasn't there. Match was nothing particularly memorable. Brooks did a handful of her cartwheel-type moves, that's about all I really recall. Face team won when Banks got Fox in the Banks Statement. Intercontinental Championship Match - The Miz (w/ Axel) vs. Jason Jordan It took a good several minutes for the match to actually start as Miz was heeling it up like only he can. First he took a long time taking off his jacket, getting on the mic to demand respect and silence, and did the Rick Rude prematch promo word-for-word twice because we wouldn't quiet down enough the first time. Then he turned to each side of the arena to gauge their boos and then declared which side he disliked the most. Jordan snagged him with a surprise roll-up while he was caught up in this. Match was solid, Miz won with the Skull Crushing Finale after a distraction by Axel. Miz's heel work is so damn good, it's great to be a part of it in person, dude got the crowd hot. Last Man Standing Match - Braun Strowman vs. Roman Reigns Split crowd for both guys. There was a little girl a couple rows behind us who we never really noticed for the whole show until she went absolutely bananas screaming for Roman throughout this entire match. It was kind of adorable. Steel steps came into play with Braun blasting Roman a few times with them. Tables came into play. Roman brought one out early only for Braun to put it back under the ring shortly after. It came back out later and Braun tried to powerbomb Reigns through it. Reigns slipped out the back and hit two Superman Punches and Samoan Dropped Braun through the table to almost win. He also almost won with a spear at one point. Finish was Braun looking to Powerslam Reigns through a table in the corner but Reigns slipped out the back and speared him through it. Braun nearly got up at nine but not quite and Reigns got the win. Reigns spent a lot of time post-match greeting fans at ringside, signing autographs, taking selfies, and saluting/applauding the crowd. All in all, it was a really fun night and a good show. Really awesome to see some of our favorites for the first time live. We went to a SmackDown live event earlier this year so we were lucky to get them twice in the same year (last time they came around was 2012). We felt like this was the better show, it felt less rushed, there were more promos, and the match quality seemed higher, but we had a great time at both.
