• Results From Last Night’s WWE Live Event
Apart from RAW, WWE did a Live Event at the Amway Center in Orlando, FLorida last night.
Universal Champion Roman Reigns didn’t work this Live Event either, due to the recent COVID-19 outbreak in WWE.
This either means he tested positive or WWE simply doesn’t want to put his health at risk (given his health history), and want him to be at his 100% for this weekend’s PPV and the upcoming WrestleMania 38 season.
Below are the results:
– Drew McIntyre kicked off the show with a promo, but got attacked by The Usos. This led to Sheamus making the save for McIntyre. Sheamus & McIntyre challenged The Usos to a SmackDown Tag Team Championship match.
– Kofi Kingston def. Sami Zayn
– Cesaro & Ricochet def. The Viking Raiders and Los Lotharios in a Triple Threat Tag Team Match (Fans sang Happy Birthday to Cesaro after the match. Cesaro then cut a promo on how he loves to wrestle on his birthday)
– Ridge Holland def. Mansoor
– Drew McIntyre & Sheamus def. The Usos (c) via DQ, Usos retained the SmackDown Tag Team Championship (Jey Uso attacked McIntyre with a Steel Chair to cause the DQ. Sheamus then turned on McIntyre and attacked him, and then challenged him to an Orlando Street Fight)
– Xia Li def. Shotzi (Shayna Baszler attacked Xia after the match, but Xia fought back)
– Charlotte Flair (c) def. Toni Storm and Sasha Banks in a Triple Threat Match to retain the SmackDown Women’s Championship
– Drew McIntyre def. Sheamus in an Orlando Street Fight (Ridge Holland tried to interfere in this match, but McIntyre put him through a Table)

• Old School Wrestling Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Old School Puroresu Legend Tatsumi Fujinami turns 68 today.
While originally being a famous NJPW Legend, after wrestling for New Japan Pro Wrestling from 1972 till 2006, most of the American Wrestling fans will remember him from main eventing the inaugural ‘WCW SuperBrawl’ PPV in 1991 against “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair.
Fujinami was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2015, but as of 2019 he’s still not fully retired from professional wrestling and still competes for several smaller promotions from time to time, mostly in 6 man tag team matches, where the 2 younger guys on his team do most of the work.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TATSUMI FUJINAMI
