9/2 WWE Smackdown in Madison, Wisconsin: Randy Orton vs. Dolph Ziggler, Antonio Cesaro vs. Cody Rhodes vs. Sin Cara for the U.S. Title, Sheamus vs. Alberto Del Rio for the World Hvt. Championship
Sep 3, 2012 - 12:11 PM


WWE Smackdown Live Event
Madison, Wisconsin
Report by Dot Net reader Samuel Forrest


1. Justin Gabriel beat Heath Slater. Fun match Gabriel won with w springboard death drop off the top. Hornswoggle and Bucky Badger came out to celebrate. Slater picked a fight with them and got pinned by Bucky after a tadpole splash from Hornswoggle. Funny stuff. Madison crowd obviously loved Bucky.

2. The Uso's beat Michael McGillicutty and Johnny Curtis. Not great but good too see the tag team scene being built. Curtis and McGillicutty came out dressed alike and to same music.

3. Ryback pinned Jinder Mahal. Pretty standard Ryback beat down. Ryback is way over. He did a Warrior-like Hulk up if that makes sense.

4. Alicia Fox pinned Natalya. Natty did all the work of course. The crowd didn't care.

5. Randy Orton pinned Dolph Ziggler. Great match. Dolph played to the crowd before telling us he doesn't need any of us. Good stuff. Dolph never could get the big move in while Orton hit all of his spots. It was fun but could have been better if Ziggler had had a couple spots. Dolph reminded everyone that he's Mr. Money in the Bank.

6. Wade Barrett pinned Tyson Kidd. Anyone late returning from intermission didn't miss much. It was boring for eight minutes and great for the last two. Barrett has new music a new shirt and an old barrage gimmick. Confusing.

7. Antonio Cesaro beat Cody Rhodes and Sin Cara in Triple Threat for U.S Championship. A funny promo from Cesaro pre match. The heels worked together then turned on each other. Cesaro pinned Cody for the win after dropping Sin Cara's on the edge of the apron. Good action throughout.

8. Sheamus pinned Alberto Del Rio in a Street Fight to retain World Heavyweight Championship. Best match of the night by far. Del Rio could've won three or four times but Sheamus kept kicking out. Great performance out of both guys! Kendo sticks chairs and the guard rail were all used effectively. It turns out Ricardo cost Alberto again on a distraction gone wrong turned into a Brouge Kick!

Notes: Not a lot of people there. Maybe 3,000 to 5,000, but crowd was really loud for not many being there. No return date announced but hopefully in March when they will be in Milwaukee again.
