1. Dolph Ziggler beat Damien Sandow.
2. Alexander Rusev beat Zack Ryder.
3. Natalya beat AJ Lee in a non-title match.
4. Sheamus and The Uso’s beat The Wyatt Family.
R-Truth hosted the next match. Jindar Mahal came out and then Xavier Woods did as well. R-Truth told the crowd we could vote for a match or a dance off. Of course, the crowd chooses a dance off. After Xavier Woods won the dance off, Jindar Mahal challenges R-Truth to a match.
5. R-Truth beat Jinder Mahal.
6. Big Show and Kofi beat Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns. The match was changed to what was originally was announced which was The Shield vs Big Show in a three on one one handicap match. No explanation was given on why it was changed. Big Show and Kofi Kingston won and then after the match Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins argued with Dean Ambrose about how they thought Ambrose cost them the match. The Wyatt Family came out and had a stare down with The Shield. A quick brawl broke out. It ended when Roman Reigns spearing Luke Harper.
7. Daniel Bryan beat Kane in a steel cage match. We left half way through the match. We're diehard wrestling fans and we're tired of seeing Kane and Daniel Bryan wrestle for what seems like the 500th time. We weren't the only ones who left. I am not sure if people thought the same about the main event or the fact that it's snowed and cold here in Cedar Rapids.
Alexander Rusev got good heat and I thought he was impressive. He was by himself. No Lana.
After the brawl with Wyatt Family, The Shield got a good reaction from the crowd. Roman Reigns is impressive in person.
Sheamus, Dolph Ziggler, and Daniel Bryan were way over. Why WWE won't push Ziggler I will never know. The guy can flat get in done in the ring.
Damien Sandow, The Wyatt Family and The Shield (before the brawl) got the most heat.
A small CM Punk chant broke out during the AJ Lee match, but it lasted about 15-20 seconds.
They pretty much shoved the WWE Network down our throats, but I guess that's expected since it just came out.
Cedar Rapids had another good turnout and, as usual, the crowd was hot. The show lacked star power in my view. The casual fan probably loved it but as a diehard fan I was bit disappointed and thought it was kinda boring. Although I was bit disappointed, I'll go again because I always go. Again, I thought it was an okay show.
