Good evening, I was in attendance at the below live event and wanted to share the results.

WWE Live Event - Wednesday, December 27, 2017 - Little Caesars Arena, Detroit, MI

Triple Threat Tag Tag Team match for the Smackdown Tag Team Championship - Usos defeated the New Day (Kofi and Big E) and Shelton Benjamin and Chad Gable.

Match started off slow as the New Day mostly danced to start the match. This match was strange as only two wrestlers could fight at a time even though it was a triple threat.

Sin Cara defeated Tye Dillinger - This was a pretty quick match as it seemed Tye had controlled most of the match, but Sin Cara came out on top.

Fashion Files - Backstage The Ascensions are getting Breezango excited for their match later on against the Bludgeon Brothers.

Riott Squad (Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan) defeated Becky Lynch and Naomi. Ruby Riott accompanied Liv and Sarah and caused a distraction. Becky Lynch made her return after being absent from filming a movie.

The Bludgeon Brothers defeated Breezango. This was a very quick match.

Randy Orton, Shinsuke Nakamura, and Bobby Roode defeated Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, and Baron Corbin. This by far was the best match of the night, the loudest cheers went to Randy Orton as he finished the match with an RKO to Sami Zayn.

Rusev, Aiden English and Mojo Rawley defeated the Ascensions and Zack Ryder. Throughout the match the fans were chanting for Zack to get into the match while Mojo was the legal man. A huge cheer for Rusev “Rusev Day” before, during, and after the match. Before the match Aiden English sang the Rusev Day song.

Fatal 4 Way for the Smackdown women’s championship - Charlotte defeated Natalya, Tamina (w/ Lana), and Carmella. Charlotte won by placing Natalya in the figure four and forcing her to submit. An awkward point during the match cam when it seemed as if Carmella was going to cash in her money in the bank, perhaps not realizing it was already a title match.

Intermission - the Cage was not hung over the ring, it was assembled piece by piece.

Cage Match - WWE Championship - AJ Styles defeated Jinder Mahal. Prior to the match Jinder cut a promo on how he was going be the United States Champion and a two time WWE champion. He then began to speak in his language, Punjabi, but was interrupted by AJ styles. This was a good match. The Singh brothers interfered by preventing AJ Styles from climbing out. At one point, when Styles had Jinder in a submission hold it seemed as if Jinder was going to tap but the Singh brothers came into the cage and broke the hold. AJ was eventually able to knock out the Singh bothers and climb the cage. As AJ was climbing out Jinder attempted to escape through the door but AJ kicked the door shut and successfully landed outside the cage to retain the title.

Loudest Cheers of the night went to AJ and Randy Orton.

Loudest Boo went to Jinder and Natalya.

Surprisingly there were a lot of fans in attendance for a live event, probably as many as there would be for a typical Smackdown Live.
