WWE Live Event
San Diego, California at Valley View Casino Center
Report by Dot Net reader Rick O'Connor
Tony Chimel came down to ringside and the Hounds of Justice theme song immediately hit as The Shield entered through crowd. All three members cut promos on CM Punk, and Seth Rollins announced that fans could get a refund because as long as they left before the end of the second match.
Sheamus's music hit and he came out to the top of the ramp to cut a promo on the Shield, declaring "San Diego came to see you get your ass beat!" He then ran down to the ring to attack the Shield followed by Kofi and Christian who ran in to help him fend off Ambrose, Rollins and Reigns, thus setting up two of the evenings matches.
1. Dolph Ziggler defeated Damien Sandow in 8:09.
2. Los Matadors & El Torito over Drew McIntyre, Jinder Mahal, and Heath Slater in 9:40.
3. Natalya and Emma defeated AJ Lee and Tamina Snuka in 7:29. The fans were given a chance to vote for a match or a dance contest.
A Bray Wyatt promo aired on the big screen.
4. Dean Ambrose defeated Kofi Kingston to retain the U.S. Title in 16:15.
5. Christian and Sheamus beat Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins.
6. Jay Uso defeated Luke Harper in 9:41.
7. Big Show beat Kane in 9:05. There were multiple loud and sustained "You sold out" chants directed at Kane to start the match and throughout.
8. Bray Wyatt defeated Daniel Bryan in a steel cage match in 14:30.
Biggest Pops - Daniel Bryan, Sheamus, The Shield (first appearance) and AJ Lee.
Most Heat - Damien Sandow, The Wyatt's and The Shield (second appearance).
The lower half of the arena was about 95 percent full while the upper section was about 15 percent full. I overheard an employee saying the attendance was almost 4,000. There were a lot of families in attendance. It was a pretty vocal crowd at times. There were a few loud "CM Punk" chants early on in the night but they died out fast. There were also plenty of "YES!" chants and plenty of Daniel Bryan chants throughout the show.
As far as house shows go, I felt it was a pretty good one and worth the price of admission. Including intermission, it was close to three hours long and I really feel that having a steel cage match adds to the overall fan experience.
They did not announce a return date.
2/8 WWE in San Diego results: Daniel Bryan vs. Bray Wyatt in a cage match, Dean Ambrose defends the U.S. Title(!), Christian and Sheamus vs. Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins, Dolph Ziggler vs. Damien Sandow
