WWE/NXT Live Event Reports, Aug. 24-27: Four Horsewomen Team Together, Bellas Return, Matt Hardy In Action, Much More!

 

 

Randy Orton Set To Appear On 'Broken Skull Sessions,' WWE Network Specials Announced For March

Raw only held one live event, as that brand's roster prepares for an international tour that began today in London, England, and continues through Asia. Still, there was some big news out of the event in Rochester, New York, as the Bellas made their return to the ring as part of a six-woman tag. The sisters teamed with Ember Moon against the Riott Squad. The Raw event also was marked by the in-ring return of Matt Hardy, who reunited his tag team with Bray Wyatt after having therapy recently for nagging injuries and working backstage in a producer role at Summerslam.

Smackdown ran the same lineup on all three of its live events. Becky Lynch jumped new Smackdown Women's Champion Charlotte Flair at each stop, while Luke Harper faced Karl Anderson in a series of singles matches following the arm injury to Harper's fellow Bludgeon Brother, Erick Rowan.

The biggest roster-related news of the week happened in NXT, where an event in Largo, Florida, was headlined by three of the MMA crossover Four Horsewomen -- Shayna Baszler, Jessamyn Duke and Mariana Shafir -- teamed together. It also marked the pro wrestling debut for Duke. The latest set of NXT shows also marked the live debut of Ultimo Ninja, a former CMLL competitor who worked under the name of Humberto Carrillo.

Here are all the results.
