WWE Live Event
Cedar Rapids, Iowa at U.S. Cellular Center
Report by Dot Net reader Joshua Baumgartner
1. Sin Cara beat Cody Rhodes. The match was great! The crowd was huge for Sin Cara. Both wrestlers looked really good.
Alberto Del Rio was shown on the screens around the arena saying Dolph Ziggler would not beat him. Tony Chimmel then announced it would be either a best of three falls or a no DQ match depending on the fan vote.
2. AJ Lee (w/Big E Langston) beat Kaitlyn to retain the WWE Divas Championship. AJ Lee got a good reaction. Big E Langston was by her side which can explain the reaction because he played football for Iowa. Once she started talking she was booed. Katlyn got a good reaction. AJ Lee beat Katlyn. Classic woman's match, little better then normal though.
3. Great Khali beat Damien Sandow. Huge boos for Sandow, and I was shocked at how big the reaction was for Khali. It was an okay match. It was a little disappointing that Sandow didn't show off more of his talents.
4. Randy Orton beat Wade Barrett. A mixed reaction for Barrett, and a huge reaction for Orton. The crowd basically went crazy for Orton. Great match! Orton is Orton but Barrett looked really good. Orton could of blown the roof off the place with the reaction he got. After the match, he went around ring side and signed autographs on his way to the back. The way interacted with the crowd he looks to be a class act.
5. Antonio Cesaro (w/Zeb Colter) beat Justin Gabriel. Big boos for Cesaro, while Gabriel got a good reaction. Before the match Zeb got on the mic and made fun of Iowa said Cesaro was more American then 99% of the crowd. Big boring chat broke out during the match. It was actually a good match. Both looked good. Gabriel needs some TV time.
6. The Uso Brothers defeated Health Slater and Jinder Mahal. This was also a great match. Both teams worked hard and Slater looked good.
7. Alberto Del Rio beat Dolph Ziggler in a No DQ match to retain the World Hvt. Championship. Del Rio received a mixed reaction, while Ziggler got a great reaction and played face well. No A.J. Lee or Big E Langston in his corner. Del Rio beat Ziggler with the help of Richardo. Ziggler got no help from AJ or Big E. The match was the best of the night. It actually could have been a pay-per-view match.
Notes: Overall, it was a great show. A good turn out, crowd wise. As we left Ziggler was signing autographs. There was no return date given unless it was announced after we left but they normally they come every year. The only thing that made me mad was Big E Langston played football for Iowa and you thought he would wrestle, nope he was just out with AJ for her match. He did a lot of press yesterday for the event but he did not wrestle. Other than that it was a good night.
6/29 WWE in Cedar Rapids results: Big E Langston homecoming, A.J. Lee vs. Kaitlyn for the WWE Divas Championship, Antonio Cesaro vs. Justin Gabriel, Great Khali vs. Damien Sandow
