8/26 WWE Smackdown in Rochester, Minnesota: Randy Orton vs. Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes vs. Sin Cara, the son of Mr. Perfect performs in home state, Brodus Clay vs. Damien Sandow
Aug 27, 2012 - 11:10 AM


WWE Smackdown live event
Rochester, Minnesota at the Mayo Civic Center
Report by Dot Net reader Tyler Roney


The event wasn't sold out, but it was still a good turnout nonetheless. It was the first time WWE had been in Rochester in five years apparently!

1. Brodus Clay defeated Damien Sandow. The match mainly had great offense on Brodus's side. Brodus hit his finisher for the pinfall.

2. The Uso's defeated Michael McGillicutty and Johnny Curtis. It felt random seeing McGillicutty and Curtis paired up together, but it worked well. They had a great interaction where McGillicutty accidentally hit Curtis and they were about to start a brawl, but then they hugged. The Uso's joined in the hug. One of the Uso's hit their finisher and won for the team.

3. Ryback defeated Jinder Mahal. Your typical Ryback match. The crowd was hot into Ryback the whole way through with lots of "Feed Me More" chants.

4. Kaitlyn defeated Natalya. Nothing exciting here, just a typical Divas match and it wasn't long at all. Lot of headlocks by Katilyn.

5. Kane defeated Daniel Bryan in a Tables Match (Fans Voting). Before the show started, Matt Striker asked us to vote for either a table match or a best of three falls match. The table match won. Daniel and the fans had some great interaction as Daniel Bryan cut a promo about how we can't chant "YES YES YES" anymore. The match ended when Kane chokeslammed Daniel Bryan through a table.

Intermission.

6. Sin Cara defeated Cody Rhodes. Prior to the match, Cody showed us the "sketch" of Sin Cara "unmasked," which he has been showing on Smackdown as of late. The crowd was largely in favor for Sin Cara and the match ended via pinfall.

7. Randy Orton defeated Dolph Ziggler. Ziggler was sans Vickie Guerrero for this show and the roof almost blew off of Mayo Civic Center for Randy Orton. Orton had much of the offense and then won with the RKO to the delight of the crowd.

8. Sheamus defeated Alberto Del Rio in a Last Man Standing match to retain the World Hvt. Championship. The roof blew off for Sheamus as well in this contest! Del Rio cut a promo prior to the match about how Sheamus cheated at SummerSlam. The end of the match came when a chair already placed in the corner by Del Rio worked against him and Sheamus hit the Brogue kick. After the match, Dolph Ziggler came out and teased cashing in his Money in the Bank contract, but he was Brogue kicked by Sheamus and the match was called off.

Biggest Pops
1. Sheamus
2. Randy Orton
3. Ryback (interestingly enough)

Biggest Boos
1. Alberto Del Rio
2. Daniel Bryan
3. Dolph Ziggler
