Women main evented MSG for the first time, John Cena returned, Vince McMahon made a surprise appearance and more from NYC

WWE ran their annual holiday show at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night. The show featured the return of John Cena.

According to one correspondent, the arena was very close to being full.

Here are the results:

– Dolph Ziggler vs. Drew McIntyre vs. Finn Balor kicked off the show. Balor won the match. McIntyre said that he would end Ziggler in their cage match on Raw.

– 10-man battle royal featuring Rhyno, Zack Ryder, The Ascension, No Way Jose, Heath Slater, Apollo Crews, Titus O’Neil, Jinder Mahal, and Curt Hawkins. Crews won the battle royal and as a result of his win, he will receive a future shot at the Intercontinental Championship.

– Bobby Lashley vs. Elias in a Guitar on a Pole match. Elias won and then he smashed the guitar on Lashley.

– Natalya, Sasha Banks, Bayley and Ember Moon vs. Mickie James and The Riott Squad has been changed. The match turned into Natalya and Ember Moon vs. The Riott Squad (Liv Morgan and Ruby Riott). Natalya won the match for her team by making Liv Morgan tap out.

– Matt Riddle, Velveteen Dream, Ricochet, Pete Dunne, and Aleister Black vs. Tommaso Ciampa, Johnny Gargano, and The Undisputed Era (Roderick Strong, Kyle O’Reilly, and Adam Cole). Bobby Fish was at ringside. Excellent match. Ricochet won the match for his team after pinning Cole.

– Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose in a Steel Cage Match. Rollins had the match won but Baron Corbin appeared and slammed the door on Rollins. Ambrose was able to crawl out of the cage. Ambrose retains his Intercontinental Title.

– The Revival vs. AOP vs. Chad Gable/Bobby Roode in a Triple Threat Match. Gable and Roode retained after Gable pinned Dash Wilder.

– Sasha Banks and Bayley defeated Mickie James and Alicia Fox.

– Baron Corbin walked out to the ring for his match with Braun Strowman. Strowman is still recovering from his elbow injury so Corbin decided to count him out with the help of the referee. Vince McMahon walked out to the ring and then announced that Corbin would face a new opponent…John Cena. Cena got the win after hitting the AA and the lighting fist.

– Ronda Rousey defeated Nia Jax in the main event to retain the Raw Women’s Championship. This is likely the first time that women have main evented a Madison Square Garden show so this was a historic occasion.

Rousey was attacked after the match by The Riott Squad. Natalya and Ember Moon ran out to help Rousey and then a brawl broke out with the women from Raw. The babyfaces stood tall at the end to send the fans home happy.
