Sulit Bayad! And it was again definitely worth the wait.
WWE once again proved why its shows are best experienced LIVE as it treated its Pinoy fans to another night of memorable wrestling matches at WWE Live Manila, last Friday, September 20th, 2019, at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
The show’s main event was a Wrestlemania rematch between Kofi Kingston vs Daniel Bryan and as expected the two superstars gave their fans one hell of a match.
Kofi retained his WWE World Heavyweight Championship in a rollercoaster match of signature moves, counters and near falls before Kofi hit Trouble in Paradise.
Bayley successfully defended the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship against Charlotte Flair in a Street Fight even after being powerbombed through a table, WWE Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura defeated Ali, and Roman Reigns put away Sami Zayn in singles action!
WWE’s Historic Return to the Big Dome
On Friday night, the WWE Universe packed the Smart Araneta Coliseum for the WWE’s historic return to the Philippines. The Superstars of SmackDown Live treated fans to an exciting evening that saw several title defenses!
Fresh from their encounter at Clash of Champions, Bayley defended the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship against Charlotte Flair in a Street Fight! The action spilled outside the ring as both women brawled through the arena. Capitalizing from a mistimed spear into a cornered chair, Bayley retained the title. But not to be outdone, the second-generation Flair destroyed the champion by taking her out with a powerbomb on a table before leaving the ring.
In the main event, fans were treated to a Wrestlemania XXXV rematch as Daniel Bryan squared off against WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Kofi Kingston! Both men went back and forth, with Daniel Bryan maintaining control through the use of his patented kicks. But despite the onslaught, Kofi Kingston’s fighting spirit prevailed when he knocked Bryan out with a Trouble in Paradise kick to retain the title!
