Thanks to WrestlingINC.com reader Deven Styczynski for sending in these results from last night's Supershow at Fargodome in Fargo, ND:
They seated for 6000 people and filled more than 5000 of the seats from what the Dome workers said. Nicky Bella was the ring announcer for the evening.
Match 1 – Alex Riley vs. Ryback. Alex Riley was first to enter and got a fair pop. But then Ryback came out and the crowd was literally going, "who?" Ryback was overpowering Riley most of the match with a display of pure brute force. Riley got a quick roll up for the 1, 2, 3 and the match was over pretty quick.
Match 2 – Natalia and Beth Phoenix vs. Eve Torres and Kelly Kelly. The Divas of Doom were quick to gain control of the match. Eve was taking the brunt of the assault. After a hot tag, Kelly took control by eliminating Beth and hitting the DDT on Natalia and getting the pin.
Jack Swagger came out to promo that he felt bad for what he did to Zack Ryder, but claimed it was necessary to get back on track. He then declared an open challenge to anyone in the roster. Hit R Truths music.
Match 3 – Jack Swagger vs. R Truth. The match started off with the standard grapple and trading of blows until Truth got the upper hand. Swagger attempted to get counted out by walking out, but Truth stopped him and put him back in the ring. Swagger gained the upper hand and hit the Swagger Bomb, but Truth hit the Little Jimmy and got the pinfall to win the US Championship.
David Otunga (Mr. Jennifer Hudson) came out and said the match was non-title and Truth didn't get to keep the belt. He will look in your direction if you yell Mr. Jennifer Hudson at him, or at least he did tonight.
Cody Rhodes came out to promo saying he had good news and bad news. The bad news was that last night in Winnipeg while facing Ted DiBiase, DiBiase broke his hand during the match and was not able to compete. He then stated that he was going to celebrate for three minutes while a referee declared him the winner by forfeit. Hit Alex Riley's music. Alex Riley then began a promo, stating that the good, hard working people of Fargo didn't pay to see Cody Rhodes get that kind of victory and issued a challenge.
Match 4 – Cody Rhodes vs. Alex Riley. Before the match started, Cody stated non-title. The match was standard grapple and trading blows opening. Cody gained the upper hand for the majority of the match. Riley then hit the Spinebuster and went for the cover, near fall. More trading blows and back and forth off the ropes and then Cody hit the Disaster Kick and gained the pinfall.
Match 5 – Wade Barrett vs. Sheamus. Barrett controlled the match early on with a strong ground game. Sheamus then gained control and the crowd got to play Counting with Sheamus.

Match 6 – Epico and Primo w/ Rosa Mendez vs. Kofi Kingston and Mason Ryan. The match starts out with Mason Ryan dominating but Epico and Primo with sheer power. Epico and Primo go through a phase of tagging back and forth because they don't want to fight Mason Ryan. Ryan stops this, but becomes overpowered due to the referee talking to Kofi about staying in the corner. Ryan gets a hot tag to Kofi and takes over, hitting a few drop kicks and the Boom Drop. During this exchange, Mason Ryan is run into a corner post and is KO. Kofi is then double teamed and receives the Backstabber. Epico and Primo pick up the victory.
Match 7 – Daniel Brian vs. The Big Show. This is for the World Heavyweight Championship. Big show dominates early on during the match. Several times he shushed the crowd and then slapped Brian in the chest. It really is as loud as you think it would be. Brian manages to kick out of several near falls. He then proceeded to chop block Show's left leg 4 times to get him to fall. Brian then put Show in the half-crab on his left leg. Show powers out of the hold but can't stand and gets kicked in the head by Brian. Pin, 1, 2, throws Brian to the other side of the ring. Brian attempts to lock in the LaBell Lock but Show powers out. Brian goes up top, but gets hit with the WMD on the way down. Show goes for the pin, but Barrett and Otunga rush the ring, break up the count, and proceed to stomp Big Show.
