WWE Buenos Aires live results: Ronda Rousey vs. Nia Jax & Tamina


Submitted by Frank Gallaxx

- Drew McIntyre defeated Dolph Ziggler

McIntyre won with a Claymore Kick after an eye rake. He was very over and got a very good reaction. McIntyre cut a promo in English telling the fans they probably didn't understand any of what he was saying. He told them they smelled and asked Dasha Fuentes to translate all of it, which made the crowd turn on him. Ziggler came out to a good reaction and got the crowd fully behind him.

There were lots of soccer chants, mostly directed at the heels, throughout the show, and lots of "ole, ole" chants for the mid-to-uppercard babyfaces.

This was a good back and forth match that went about 10 minutes and got a "This is awesome" chant.

- Natalya came out to a decent reaction. She cut a promo saying she loved the crowd and called out The Riott Squad who "disrespecto mi familia." The Riott Squad came out to attack her and brought out a table to promote Natalya and Riott's upcoming tables match at TLC. That got a "we want tables" chant from the crowd.

Bayley and Ember Moon ran in for the save, then Dana Brooke and Mickie James attacked them from behind -- but the faces fought them off. The Riott Squad then tried to put Natalya through the table, but Bayley and Moon knocked them out of the ring and Natalya powerbombed Liv Morgan through the table.

The faces then posed with the broken table and the Argentinian flag, which the crowd liked.

- WWE Cruiserweight Champion Buddy Murphy defeated Gran Metalik to retain his title

Murphy retained with Murphy's Law. Metalik came out to a next to nothing reaction, while Murphy got a decent reaction and a few chants at the start of the match. Murphy stalled for about three minutes at the beginning and told the crowd to shush multiple times to lots of heat.

Metalik was able to get over with his high flying and even got a "This is awesome/lucha" chant. This was a very good match that also went about 10 minutes.

After the match, Andrade "Cien" Almas came out with Zelina Vega to a good reaction and attacked Metalik on his way to the ring. Almas then cut a promo in Spanish telling the crowd he wasn't happy to be here and that he was "El Idolo" to lots of boos.

- Rey Mysterio defeated Andrade "Cien" Almas (w/ Zelina Vega)

Mysterio won after a 619 and a frog splash. He was super over when he came out and got probably the biggest reaction of the night. He posed like Eddie Guerrero and got an "Eddie" chant. Almas also did the Three Amigos at one point, which got somewhat of a good reaction.

This was a very good match, again going about 10 minutes, and was probably the match of the night considering all the action, storytelling, and crowd heat involved.

The crowd was totally behind Mysterio. He cut a promo in Spanish saying he was very happy when he learned that he was coming to Argentina for the first time when he was announced for the tour. He thanked the crowd and dedicated the match to Eddie Guerrero. Mysterio posed with the flag. The audience loved him.

- Elias defeated Baron Corbin, Drew McIntyre & Bobby Lashley in a no DQ handicap match

Elias entered and was very over as well. He played the intro of a famous song by Argentine band Soda Stereo and the crowd sang along with all of it. He did mess up on some chords, though. He cut his usual promo until Corbin interrupted to announce a singles match between them. The crowd booed him and chanted "F*** you Corbin" and "pelado," which means baldie in Spanish.

In the middle of Elias' comeback, Corbin called for timeout and announced the match was now a three-on-one no DQ handicap match, with his partners being McIntyre and Lashley. Lashley came out without Lio Rush and got some "Lashley" chants. They mauled Elias and took a selfie with him while he was in a chinlock.

McIntyre then accidentally Claymore Kicked Corbin, and Ziggler and Apollo Crews came out for the save. They hit their finishers on Corbin -- and Elias pinned him after a diving elbow. This match was short and sweet thankfully.

- No Way Jose, Titus O'Neil, Heath Slater & Apollo Crews defeated The Revival, Rhyno & Jinder Mahal (w/ Sunil Singh)

Rhyno was on the heel side here. He got lots of "ECW" chants throughout the match and beat on Slater without acknowledging anything about Monday's Raw. Slater wasn't working as a referee either.

This was the comedy match. The fans liked Jose's dancing, O'Neil's barking, and Slater's goofing around, and chanted "NXT" lightly at The Revival. Crews got the pin for his team after a crossbody.

- Apollo Crews defeated Curt Hawkins

Hawkins came out after the eight-man tag and issued a challenge to Crews, who then proceeded to beat him with a military press and a standing moonsault in less than a minute. The crowd liked Crews' athleticism even though they didn't react to him at all when he was tagged in during the tag match. The faces danced in the ring after.

- Raw Women's Champion Ronda Rousey defeated Nia Jax (w/ Tamina) by DQ

Jax got booed as much as Corbin, and the crowd chanted for Becky Lynch. Rousey got a very good reaction and was very over, although she did get some "Becky" chants as well.

Rousey retained via DQ after Tamina attacked her four minutes into the match. The match was actually entertaining until then. After fighting them off, Rousey issued the match to be restarted as a handicap match.

- Raw Women's Champion Ronda Rousey defeated Nia Jax & Tamina in a handicap match

This wasn't very good, as Rousey sold for most of the match and looked a bit green here and there. Tamina and Jax didn't look good either. As clunky as it was, Rousey's comeback got a good reaction. She tapped Tamina out with the armbar. She then celebrated with the fans. This was probably the worst match of the show.

Before the main event, the crowd chanted for Finn Balor. He was heavily advertised for this show but wasn't anywhere to be seen. Fuentes then thanked the crowd.

- Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins defeated Dean Ambrose by DQ

Both got very loud reactions and were super over like Mysterio. There was a bit of comedy during the match involving the crowd. Rollins sold his left knee even though Ambrose barely worked on it.

At one point, Ambrose wanted to do the Shield fist bump to no avail, before Rollins accidentally pushed him onto the ref. Ambrose then hit a low blow for a slow two count, which caused him to bring out a chair and hit Rollins with it, causing the disqualification.

While Ambrose was setting up two chairs for a powerbomb, the crowd chanted again for Balor. Rollins was able to fend Ambrose off and hit him with a chair. He then cut a promo saying he wasn't done with Ambrose and wanted to finish him off on Friday's show. Rollins then swung around the belt along with the flag, which the crowd loved. He celebrated with the fans at ringside.

This was a good match with a lousy finish to hype up their match for the next night. It went about 15 minutes. Overall, this was a good, fun show and many people described it as better than last year's.
