WWE "Saturday Night's Main Event" results from Bakersfield, California, USA 🇺🇸 at Mechanic Bank Arena on September 17, 2022:
Bianca Belair, Alexa Bliss, and Asuka defeated Bayley, Dakota Kai, and Iyo Sky when Belair pinned Kai after the KOD. This was said to be the most entertaining match on the show. Bliss stood out and was said to have looked "reinvigorated." She was a smiling baby face doing some of her old heel moves mixed in with some new unorthodox athletic stuff.
Kevin Owens pinned Austin Theory after the Stunner. An attempt at cheating backfired on Theory. He ripped off the top turnbuckle pad to expose the metal. When the referee went to put the turnbuckle pad back on, Theory tried to use the Money In The Bank briefcase as a weapon while the referee was distracted but Owens ducked and gave him the Stunner. The referee turned around and counted the pin.
Ricochet pinned Madcap Moss after a Shooting Star Press.
They did a segment where the lights went out for a long time and the song "White Rabbit" by Jefferson Airplane played on the speakers. The crowd held up their cellphones and swayed along to it. A red light then appeared. Everything went back to normal for the start of the next match. The speculation is this could have something to do with Karrion Kross who was known as The White Rabbit in Lucha Underground or Bray Wyatt. We were told the song played the same way at WWE Smackdown on Friday too but it did not air live on Fox. (Music note: WWE is now using a Jefferson Airplane song following Orange Cassidy using "Jane" by the group as his entrance music in AEW.)
WWE Smackdown Women's Champion Liv Morgan pinned Natalya after the Oblivion. Natalya cut a heel promo before the match and kept telling the crowd to shut up. Morgan playfully taunted her a bit before the ring introductions. During the match, Natalya got frustrated and kept going out to the floor to try and regroup because Morgan was able to counter her every move. Back in the ring, Natalya offered a handshake to try to slow the pace down. Morgan accepted but Natalya tried to scoop her off of her feet to get her in the Sharpshooter. Morgan quickly stomped on Natalya's hand to avoid the submission hold attempt.
Drew McIntyre and The New Day (Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston) defeated The Imperium (Gunther, Ludwig Kaiser, and Giovanni Vinci) when McIntyre pinned Kaiser after the Claymore Kick.
Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler defeated Shotzi Blackheart and Xia Li when Rousey submitted Shotzi to the arm bar as Baszler grabbed Li in a choke hold at the same time to stop her from making the save.
WWE United States Champion Bobby Lashley pinned Tomasso Ciampa after a spear.
Matt Riddle pinned Seth Rollins in a Street Fight after powerbombing him into a table and then the RKO.
