WWE Vancouver live results: Kairi Sane makes surprise appearance


Submitted by Hamza Abdelrahman

- The New Day (Big E & Xavier Woods) defeated Cesaro & Sheamus

New Day hit their finisher to win a fun opener.

- Jeff Hardy defeated Shelton Benjamin

Benjamin cut a heel promo before the match. He said he isn’t getting the respect he deserves, that he was hijacking the show, and then challenged anyone to come face him. Hardy’s music played to a big pop.

The match was nothing memorable, but people reacted for all of Hardy's big moves.

- Kairi Sane & Carmella defeated Peyton Royce & Billie Kay

This was originally advertised as a singles match between Royce and Carmella, but as soon as Carmella entered the ring, The IIconics teamed up on her. Kairi Sane came out to make the save, with her surprise appearance getting the biggest pop of the night so far. Carmella challenged Royce & Kay to the tag match. 

- United States Champion R-Truth defeated Shinsuke Nakamura and Rusev in a triple threat match to retain his title

Truth cut a pre-match promo and thanked the fans for sticking by his side.

The crowd chanted "Rusev Day" for a bit, but they were mostly booing Rusev. He was thrown outside the ring and R-Truth won via a roll-up on Nakamura.

R-Truth and Carmella brought some kids from the crowd into the ring for a dance break.

- SmackDown Women's Champion Asuka defeated Charlotte Flair to retain her title

Charlotte cut a promo on Asuka. At one point, Charlotte said Becky Lynch wasn't here. Everyone booed. 

During the match, Charlotte got a really bad-looking bruise on her chest. Asuka submitted Charlotte to retain. This was the best match on the show so far.

- Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson defeated SAnitY (Eric Young & Alexander Wolfe)

They had a short match with little heat. Gallows had to start the "Too Sweet" chants himself.

- Rey Mysterio defeated Andrade

Zelina Vega got the most heat of the night. This was a really good match. It was very fun to watch -- and the crowd was really engaged.

Mysterio won after hitting the 619.

- WWE Champion Daniel Bryan defeated Samoa Joe and Mustafa Ali in a triple threat match to retain his title

This was the match of the night, though Mysterio vs. Andrade was a close second. They all did their spots and had a number of near falls. Rowan came out to break Joe’s sleeper hold and was booed loudly.

Bryan won with the running knee.

Joe was the last person to leave. People were chanting his name before he flipped everyone off (using his forearm, not his finger).

People were disappointed in the end that -- despite being advertised -- AJ Styles and Becky Lynch didn't appear on the show.
