WWE recently hosted a live event at the World’s most famous arena, Madison Square Garden in New York City on Saturday March 5th.
The show was being presented as one of the biggest house shows in the lead up to WrestleMania, with the MSG show being heavily marketed around Brock Lesnar defending the WWE Championship on the show. On the February 21st Raw, Paul Heyman stated that Bobby Lashley would be the opponent, Lashley is not medically cleared to compete. As a result of this, the opponent for the WWE Champion remained a mystery until shortly before the match.
At the event, it was announced that Austin Theory would be challenging Brock Lesnar for the WWE Title. It should be noted that Theory was the last man eliminated from the Elimination Chamber at the Premium Live Event of the same name, which was the match where Lesnar once again captured the WWE Championship.
The following results took place at the Madison Square Garden Live Event. The results have been obtained by Wrestling Inc:
