WWE Raw live event
Asheville, N.C. at U.S. Cellular Center
Report by Dot Net reader B. Thompson

The show was at the US Cellular Center, better know as the Asheville Civic Center. The venue was very small and looked to be maybe half full at best. This was shocking considering the star power on the show.

1. Brodus Clay defeated Michael McGillicutty

2. Antonio Cesaro defeated Jack Swagger and R-Truth to retain the U.S. Title after throwing Truth out and pinning Swagger. Cesaro is absolute money in his role right now. Tons of heat.

3. Zack Ryder pinned Corey Graves. Literally nobody in the crowd recognized Graves, myself included.

4. Eve defeated AJ and Kaitlyn to retain the Divas Title after Vickie Guerrero restarted the match. N.C. delivers some of the creepiest crowds for Divas matches and made it extremely uncomfortable at times. Surprisingly, a really fun match.

5. John Cena defeated Dolph Ziggler. Easily match of the night. Surreal sight to see someone as huge as Cena in such a small venue. Great chemistry and Ziggler is ready to break out at any moment.

6. Santino Marella defeated Tensai with the Cobra. No Sakamoto to beat down post match.

7. Team Hell No defeated Primo and Epico to retain the WWE Tag Team Titles. Asheville loved Daniel Bryan and Kane, and Rosa did a great job of getting heat on the challengers.

8. Ryback defeated CM Punk by DQ after the Shield ran out and interfered. Rollins took a powerbomb and Punk took Shellshocked to send the crowd home happy.

Overall, fun show despite the lackluster venue/crowd. Tickets were affordable and well worth the money.
