St. Petersburg, Russia
Report by Dot Net reader Yura Lepnev
Before the show wrestlers met at the airport about 15-20 people. Wrestlers were clearly surprised by that. There were about 4-5,000 people in attendance at the actual show.
1. R-Truth defeated Heath Slater. It was a pretty quick match. Fans were very well maintained to Truth, often yelling What's Up? Truth won after his finisher.
2. Kaitlyn defeated Tamina Snuka and AJ to retain the WWE Divas Championship. For wrestlers, it was a fairly long fight. AJ aroused the most emotions from the audience. During the match, each wrestler held the initiative, though many were impressed Tamina. However, before the match there was zero reaction. Kaitlin won after Spear.
3. Michael McGillicutty defeated Brad Maddox. Before the match, Maddox reminded the audience of his name. During the match, fans screamed 'You can't wrestle' in the direction of Brad. Michael won after neckbreaker. The audience shouted Mr. Perfect during the match as well.
4. Daniel Bryan defeated Dolph Ziggler by DQ. The best match of the show and it lasted about 15 minutes. I think he could well be on the PPV. There were a lot of Yes chants from fans. There was also a nice roll call of 'Let's Go Ziggler/Let's Go Bryan.' Daniel won after Dolph attacked him with his title belt. After the match, Bryan put Ziggler in the Yes Lock.
5. Tons Of Funk (Brodus Clay and Tensai) defeated Team Rhodes Scholars (Cody Rhodes & Damien Sandow). This match was funny. Beforehand, Sandow sang something about America, causing a lot of negative reaction. In the course of the match, the faces easily won the match after having arranged an array of dances.
6. Zack Ryder defeated Antonio Cesaro. The match was very well received by the audience. Cesaro and even shouted Kings of Wrestling during the match. Ryder won after his finisher, though it was also very rapidly met. Woo Woo Woo could often be heard during the match.
7. John Cena and Team Hell No (Daniel Bryan and Kane) defeat Big E. Langston, Dolph Ziggler, and Ryback. For many, this fight was unexpected since claimed the main event was a battle between Cena and Ryback. John received a mixed reaction, and there were even cries of 'F--- You, Cena'. Ryback received a positive response. During the match, some shouted "Happy Birthday" to the side of Kane. John Cena appeared only at the end of the match, bringing victory after an AA on Ziggler. Ryback and Big E quarreled, and Ryback just left the ring.
After the match, Daniel Bryan tried to take the belt from Kane. In the end, Daniel stole the WWE belt from John Cena, but Kane made his return the belt back. As a result, all three hug in the end of the evening. It was quite funny.
4/25 WWE Raw in St. Petersburg, Russia results: John Cena, Daniel Bryan, and Kane vs. Ryback, Dolph Ziggler, and Big E Langston, Antonio Cesaro vs. Zack Ryder, Kaitlyn vs. Tamina Snuka vs. A.J. Lee for the Divas Championship
