WWE Live Event
Report by Dot Net reader Michael Terry
About 5,500 to 6,000 in attendance, probably 85 percent filled.
1. Kofi Kingston beat Damien Sandow. Kofi got a nice reception from the fans and Sandow was heavily booed. Kofi won with Trouble in Paradise in roughly 10 minutes.
2. The Ascension (w/Vickie Guerrero) beat Los Matadores. The NXT Tag Champs went over in six minutes. A comedy spot with El Torito ramming his horns in Vickie's backside after the match made the fans laugh.
3. A.J. Lee defeated Cameron to retain the Divas Championship. Nothing special here as A.J. retained the title in six minutes.
4. The Miz beat Justin Gabriel. Gabriel came out to crickets as he got no applause or boos. The Miz was way over with the crowd and he won the match with a Figure Four leg lock in ten minutes.
5. Daniel Bryan beat Kane. Kane got major heat as Bryan was greeted with overwhelming Yes chants. Bryan won with the running knee in ten minutes.
6. The Uso Brothers defeated Goldust and Cody Rhodes, and Ryback and Curtis Axel in a three-way tag match to retain the WWE Tag Team Championship. Ryback got major heat and one fan behind me told Axel that he would never be perfect in reference to his better than perfect t-shirt. Funny. A very entertaining match. The Uso Brothers retained the titles when one of them performed a superkick and flying splash on Ryback. The Rhodes Brothers showed good sportsmanship and presented The Uso's with the belts in a match that lasted 15 minutes.
7. Dolph Ziggler beat Alberto Del Rio. This was the best technical wrestling match of the night. Ziggler got the pin on del rio after a Zig Zag in 15 minutes. Dolph was way over with the crowd.
8. John Cena and Batista defeated Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton. Jonesboro was definitely John Cena country as the roof was almost blown off the building when he arrived. Nice cheers for Orton and Batista as well. Lots of back and forth action would ultimately see nice tag action from Wyatt and Orton working well together until cena pushed Orton into the back of Wyatt. Batista refused to tag Cena and then ultimately dished out a Batista bomb on Cena. Batista left Cena alone. Orton was about to pin Cena, but Wyatt attacked Orton with a Sister Abigail, thus leading to Cena performing the AA on Orton for the pin in 18 minutes. The fans were up for the entire match. Cena celebrated alone in the ring to close the show and send everyone home happy.
Notes: There were no C.M. Punk chants all night. All in all, not a bad show.
