IMG 1724

WWE came to Brighton this month as some of the biggest wrestling stars performed at the venue and even took time to shake fans hands and take photos with them. The main event was when AJ Styles defended the WWE title in a triple threat match against Daniel Bryan and Samoa Joe. The event started off with United States Champion Shinsuke Nakamura defeating WWE superstar and all round legend Jeff Hardy to retain his title. PROGRESS Atlas Champion Trent Seven defeated Zack Gibson to retain his title.

Elsewhere Asuka & Naomi defeated Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville and Shelton Benjamin defeated Andrade “Cien” Almas. Almas attacked Benjamin before the bell and carried on once it started, but Benjamin pinned him with a roll-up in about two minutes.

SmackDown Tag Team Champions Cesaro & Sheamus defeated The Usos and New Day in a three-way match to retain their titles as Cesaro pinned one of the Usos to retain the championship much to the delight of fans.

Rusev & Lana defeated R-Truth & Carmella however this was just comedy with dancing and dance breaks and about 30 seconds of wrestling to entertain fans  Rusev pinned Truth as they were celebrating before Aiden English blindsided Rusev before all four sent him packing. Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson defeated Eric Young & Alexander Wolfe. SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch defeated Charlotte Flair to retain her title as Mandy Rose tried to interfere, but that led to Naomi, Asuka, and Deville coming out. Charlotte cleaned house after that but was rolled up by Lynch for the pin.

Then the main event took place as WWE Champion AJ Styles defeated Samoa Joe and Daniel Bryan in a triple threat match to retain his title. Styles pinned Joe after hitting the Phenomenal Forearm. This was a great, family fun show as the crowd was into all the matches and was lively and loud throughout.
