WWE Smackdown live event
Omaha, Nebraska
Report by Dot Net reader Troy Sasek

The entire upper bowl was tarped off and I would guess they had maybe 4,000 in attendance. A terrible number and they probably won't be bringing a live Raw here anytime soon. Nice job, Omaha.  I had great second row seats and the show lasted exactly 2.5 hours (strict schedule to get to St. Louis, I guess). They had a fan interaction "text poll" and asked "Should A.J. marry Bryan on Raw?" Dumb.
1. Sin Cara and Justin Gabriel defeated Hunico and Camacho. Some decent action and high flying moves by Sin Cara.
2. Damien Sandow beat Xavier Woods. Sandow really reminds me of The Genius with his cartwheels.
3. Natayla defeated Kaityln. Zzzzzz.
4. Ryback defeated Drew McLntyre. A longer match than expected. Nice sign in the crowd that read, "Feed him the title."
5. Sheamus defeated Alberto Del Rio to retain the World Hvt. Championship. Good action as they went into the crowd twice.
6. Ted DiBiase defeated Jinder Mahal. Omaha loves DiBiase as his dad is from here. I miss Maryse.
7. Christian defeated Cody Rhodes. Nothing too spectacular.
8. C.M. Punk defeated Daniel Bryan and Kane in a Triple Threat to retain the WWE Championship. A.J. appeared at the end and handed Bryan a chair, which backfired and Punk got the win. A.J. appeared for maybe a minute. Sad for all of us guys.
Punk thanked the crowd and reminded everyone that tonight is Raw 1000.
