    We can’t forget Diesel pinning Bob Backlund in 8 second for the WWF title in MSG as well.


    1. It is live because there is no other way a wrestling show can be held. 2. ‘House shows’ are called ‘Live Events’ and have been for at least 2 decades. Read the next ticket you buy that is not to a televised show or read WWE the website.

    It’s not live, it’s called a house show, and it’s not televised hece why it’s not live. And it’s very unusual for them to switch title holders on house shows…..

    Kevin Owens since going to Smackdown has fallen from the Main Event picture. I waiting for him to go back Raw after WM. He belongs on Raw.

    I think it’ll be one of those ‘KO’ll win it back on the next house show” before the next Smackdown things and it will only be mentioned in passing on Smackdown and promptly be forgotten about.

    MSG is one of those house shows where anything can happen. I was there when the Godwin’s won the tag titles and again for the infamous Curtain Call at MSG.

    Who knows what happened. OTher than NXT It’s been years since they dropped a title at a house show. Maybe this is an attempt to boost attendance for these events.

  • Brad Grillakis

    Heard this when I went to youtube and seen small clip. What’s going on? Hope it’s neither and he taking a 3 weeks off be back for battleground rematch.

  • D2K

    Something must be seriously wrong with Kevin Owens. Either he is seriously-injured or he is about to be future-endeavored.

    Otherwise this has to be one of the most brick-stupid things I’ve heard.
