WWE Sheffield Report

The WWE returned to Yorkshire last Friday night as the stars of Smackdown were in attendance at the FLY DSA Arena.
A number of titles were on the line and some feuds were played out in front of a near sell-out crowd.
The show opened with the Bludgeon Brothers defeating both the Usos and the New Day to retain Smackdown Live Tag Team Titles.
The NXT title was on the line next when Holland's Aleister Black gained victory against Alexander Wolfe thanks to his quick range of kicks as he kept hold of his title.
There were plenty of Rusev Day chants ahead of the Bulgarian Brute taking on Jeff Hardy for the United States Championship, but it ended up being defeat for him after a Swanton Bomb.
While this will not be the end of their feud that has been years in the making, Daniel Bryan and The Miz fought each other for one of the first times since Bryan was medically cleared to compete again and he left with the bragging rights for the evening.

While a six man tag match saw some of the best UK talent on show as Tyler Bate, Mark Andrews & Wolfgang defeated Joseph Conners, James Drake & Sam Gradwell.
And there was an eight-woman tag team match as Asuka, Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair & Naomi got the better of Carmella, Lana, Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville.
The main event was scheduled to be AJ Styles against Shinsuke Nakamura but after interference from The Bar who attacked Styles, this led to Gallows & Anderson helping out the WWE Champion and it became a Six Man Tag Team Match where AJ Styles, Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson left victorious.
This was another entertaining evening with the WWE stars coming back to Yorkshire in Leeds in November.
