WWE results from Adelaide house show (Aug. 12, 2016): Gift of Bálor redux

Socita Orton on Twitter

The Adelaide Entertainment Centre in South Australia.

What happened?

- Apollo Crews def. Sheamus
- Braun Strowman def. Jey Uso
- The New Day def. The Club to retain their tag team championship
- Rusev def. Titus O’Neil to retain the United States championship
- Roman Reigns & Finn Bálor def. Chris Jericho & Seth Rollins
- Sasha Banks def. Charlotte to retain the Women’s title
- Sami Zayn def. Kevin Owens
- John Cena def. AJ Styles

What caught our eye?

The variation in these cards largely seems to be whether the U.S. or tag title match goes on first.

Has having your hometown insulted ever been this much fun?

At least Finn is there to defend Adelaide with his Y2J impersonation (he may need one of those GLAAD sensitivity courses, though):

Good on Romey for fighting through injury, too...

#RomanReigns received two stitches following his match in #WWEMelbourne.
