WWE Munich live results: Final show of the European tour


Submitted by Tobi Forwick

- SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Bludgeon Brothers defeated The Usos and New Day (Big E & Xavier Woods) to retain their titles

The Bludgeon Brothers won with a double-team powerbomb. It was a fun match with a lot of comedy at the beginning. But after a couple of minutes, it appeared as if on of the Usos hurt his head, and his brother and someone else came out to check on him. The match continued until both Usos got back into it for some spots that led to the finish. It wasn't clear if the injury was legitimate or not.

The crowd was really into The New Day and Usos and booed the heels.

- NXT Champion Aleister Black defeated Alexander Wolfe to retain his title

Black connected with the Black Mass to retain. There were some chants for him (including "Tommy End" ones) and NXT, but it seemed like most of the crowd didn't know who he was. They liked Wolfe in his home country and chanted for him a bit.

After Wolfe lost, he cut a promo in German and said we have to look out because very soon SAnitY is going to take over SmackDown.

- Charlotte Flair, Naomi & Asuka defeated Lana, Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville

Asuka submitted Lana with the Asuka Lock. There wasn't much to this. Lana got "Rusev Day" chants and Charlotte received a nice reaction.

- Andrade "Cien" Almas (w/ Zelina Vega) defeated Sin Cara

Almas picked up the win with his hammerlock DDT. It was nice to see Almas and Vega -- and their act is so great -- but they had the same problem Black did where the majority of the crowd didn't seem to know them. The fans got into it after some lucha spots, with Almas gaining the upper hand after a distraction from Vega.

- Daniel Bryan & Tye Dillinger defeated Big Cass & The Miz

This got the biggest reactions of anything on the show, with Bryan pinning Cass with the running knee. Miz received a good reaction and the crowd booed Cass. Dillinger got a good response, but the crowd treated Bryan like a superstar.

They worked a decent match. Miz mocked Bryan, and Cass was still selling his leg from Bryan's attack on SmackDown. The Miz mockingly did "Yes" and "10" chants, while Bryan and Dillinger did them to hype up the crowd. After the match, Bryan and Dillinger did each other's chants to put the other over and play along with the audience.

- United States Champion Jeff Hardy defeated Rusev (w/ Aiden English) to retain his title

The Swanton Bomb won it for Hardy. English did the whole Rusev Day stuff at the beginning and everybody loved it until Hardy came out to a big reaction. There were still a couple "Rusev Day" chants from there, but the crowd appeared to like Hardy more.

They had a decent match, doing most of their signature moves. Rusev managed to get a ton of heat when putting on a Real Madrid soccer and mocking the fans. The FC Bayern Munich fans booed him like crazy, so it worked really well.

- Becky Lynch defeated SmackDown Women's Champion Carmella by DQ

Carmella started off by informing the announcer that she wants everybody to know that she beat Charlotte Flair. Both wrestlers got good reactions, and Carmella spent most of her time running away from Lynch and screaming "I can wrestle" after hitting a move.

Following a scramble on the outside, the match ended with a disqualification. The people didn't seem to care too much about the match. Carmella came back in the ring and took a suplex from Lynch, who took the title and held it up in the air.

- AJ Styles, Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows defeated Shinsuke Nakamura, Cesaro & Sheamus

Styles pinned Sheamus following the Phenomenal Forearm. Cesaro and Sheamus entered wearing traditional lederhosen, which the crowd obviously loved. Nakamura also got a big reaction and carried himself so well. Gallows and Anderson got a good babyface reaction, but it was nothing in comparison to the one Styles got when he came out (which was only second to the response Bryan received).

They worked a nice tag match with mostly Gallows & Anderson or Cesaro & Sheamus in. When Styles or Nakamura tagged in, the crowd got really behind it and did dueling chants. There were also some chants for Cesaro, but he didn't acknowledge them.

The highlights of the match were uppercuts from Cesaro and Anderson, as well as Styles' usual stuff. Him hitting the Phenomenal Forearm and pinning Sheamus seemed to come a bit out of nowhere.
