The WWE Super Show-Down 2018 pay-per-view, out of the Melbourne Cricket Ground in Melbourne, Australia, just wrapped up. We’ve got the WWE Super Show-Down 2018 results, as well as our overall thoughts on the show, for you to check out below. Let us know what you thought about WWE Super Show-Down 2018 by tweeting us, @TheRumbleRamble.

The New Day (c) vs. The Bar

SmackDown Live Tag Team Championship Match


The New Day defended their tag team championship titles against The Bar in a fun opener filled with exciting moments. Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods collaborated on a sweet backstabber//double stomp combination to get the win for The New Day.

Winner: The New Day


Becky Lynch (c) vs. Charlotte Flair

SmackDown Live Women’s Championship Match


Becky Lynch retained her SmackDown Live Women’s Championship after losing to Charlotte Flair via disqualification. The two had a solid match with one another before Becky felt the heat and decided that a DQ loss was the best way to ensure she left Australia with the title.

Post-match, Becky roughed Charlotte up some more, leaving her lying in the ring to close out the segment.

Winner: Charlotte Flair (via disqualification) 


 John Cena and Bobby Lashley vs. Elias and Kevin Owens


Following your typical pre-match Elias shenanigans, John Cena and Bobby Lashley defeated Elias and Kevin Owens in tag team action. Cena hit Elias with the Attitude Adjustment to secure the win for his team.

Winner: John Cena and Bobby Lashley 


The IIconics vs. Asuka and Naomi 


The IIconics defeated Asuka and Naomi in front of their home country crowd. This match was probably the weakest one on the show, but seeing Billie Kay and Peyton Royce get a W in Australia was a neat moment.

Winner: The IIconics 


AJ Styles (c) vs. Samoa Joe

WWE Championship No Disqualification Match


AJ Styles and Samoa Joe had our personal match of the night. The two started the bout on the ramp and really did a wonderful job of selling the idea that this fight was personal and not a standard wrestling match. Styles got the win by submission with the Calf Crusher, after dishing out a ton of punishment to Joe’s knee throughout the match.

Winner: AJ Styles 


The Riott Squad vs. The Bella Twins and Ronda Rousey


The Bella Twins and Ronda Rousey defeated The Riott Squad in six-person tag action. Rousey locked the armbar on both Sarah Logan and Liv Morgan, forcing both to tap out. We’re glad to see Liv Morgan healthy and back in action, she’s got a bright future in the WWE ahead of her.

Winner: The Bella Twins and Ronda Rousey 


Cedric Alexander (c) vs. Buddy Murphy

Cruiserweight Championship Match


If you’ve been watching 205 Live, you know that the cruiserweights are can’t-miss TV right now. Buddy Murphy has been one of our favorites since joining the division earlier this year, and expectations were high for this match, to say the least.

Murphy, along with Cedric Alexander, lived up to those expectations. Both men pulled out all the stops; Murphy even kicked out of the Lumbar Check at one point. The Melbourne crowd was behind their hometown hero all the way, and they went home happy as Murphy defeated Alexander via Murphy’s Law to capture the title.

Winner: Buddy Murphy


The Shield vs. Braun Strowman, Drew McIntyre and Dolph Ziggler


The Shield defeated Bruan Strowman, Drew McIntyre and Dolph Ziggler in an awesome six-man tag team match. This brought us right back to 2013/14, when The Shield were having incredible six-man tag matches every week.

There were tons of awesome spots, including one where Roman Reigns speared Strowman through the barricade at ringside, saving Dean Ambrose from a shoulder tackle in the process. Speaking of Ambrose, he nailed Ziggler with the Dirty Deeds to get the win for The Shield.

Winner: The Shield


Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz


Daniel Bryan defeated The Miz in just a few short minutes. Bryan snuck away with the victory after landing a small package on Miz to score the pinfall. Bryan is now the new number one contender for AJ Styles’ WWE Championship.

If you blinked, you missed this one; it was over that fast.

Winner: The Miz


Triple H (w/ Shawn Michaels) vs. The Undertaker (w/ Kane)

No Disqualification Match


Right before the bell rang, it was announced that the match would be no disqualification, which drew a smirk from Triple H and a dirty look from The Undertaker. The two brawled around the ringside area, with both Shawn Michaels and Kane getting involved at points, for the first half of the match.

Once the action came back to the ring, the two exchanged finishing maneuvers on one another for near-falls. The live crowd absolutely loved this match, or perhaps they loved characters that were involved in it. They were loud from bell-to-bell either way.

Thanks to HBK, The Game introduced a sledgehammer to the match. After a sledgehammer shot to the dome, a Sweet Chin Music from Michaels, and a Pedigree, Triple H pinned The Undertaker for the first time ever to win the match.

Post-match, all four men embraced one another while an impressive pyro display lit up the sky. It looked as though that was how the show was going to end, but the Brothers of Destruction laid out Michaels and Triple H to close out the event.

Winner: Triple H
