I went to the WWE Supershow in Las Cruces, New Mexico. I sat in the second seat in the 3rd row. I got to the arena early and watched the wrestlers show up, the only person that signed autographs was Vickie Guerrero. I'm not sure if she always signs in every city she's in, but she always signs in Las Cruces or El Paso, probably because she is from the area so she's showing us some love. I asked Vickie how her daughter Shaul was doing and she said that she's doing good, she's going to be seeing her in two weeks and she can't wait for that. I told her how I had a class with Shaul at New Mexico State University, which is where I go to school, and Shaul went to school there for a whole year I believe after she graduated high school. Vickie said that Shaul misses school and Las Cruces. I told Vickie to take care and thanked her for the autograph. She's always nice and down to earth. She didn't say where she was going to see Shaul at in 2 weeks, I'm assuming Shaul will go back to El Paso for a few days.
No one else signed any autographs, they came from one of the Dakotas to El Paso by airplane, then drove from El Paso to Las Cruces which is about an hour and fifteen minutes or so from the airport in El Paso to the Pan American Center in Las Cruces. Cena had his own bus, Punk had his own bus, Big Show had his own bus and one more person had their own bus, I didn't see who had the 4th bus. Cena walked by like he was pissed off, same with Punk and Show. I'm sure they were just tired, I can't see how Cena is tired though, this was the first show of the weekend for him. I could have sworn I had seen Cena's bus about a block or two away from the arena at a tanning place. My dad and I were driving to the show and I pointed at the bus and said to check it out, it looked exactly like Cena's bus and it was parked in front of a tanning place, it wasn't a gym or anything else.
The press release that WWE released on Monday the 16th had Wade Barrett vs. Randy Orton in a street fight, Daniel Bryan vs. Big Show vs. Mark Henry for the World Heavyweight Championship, Kane vs. Cena and finally Miz vs. Punk for the WWE Championship. The WHC match was just Show vs. Bryan, Henry wasn't there. Also Zack Ryder was there at the show but he wasn't used or anything. He arrived to the arena, I got some pictures of him showing up but he just wasn't used. Arn Anderson was the road agent for the show, Mike Chioda and Jack Doan were the two referees, Justin Roberts was the ring announcer.
As for the show, the first match was a battle royal, the winner of the match faces Cody Rhodes for the Intercontinental Championship. JTG, Skip "Ryback" Sheffield, Epico, Primo, Drew McIntyre, Santino Marella, Sheamus, Kofi Kingston, David Otunga, Mason Ryan, R-Truth and Alex Riley were the 12 participants in the match, the match ended with Sheamus throwing David Otunga over the top rope to get the win.
After the match Justin Roberts announced the winner being Sheamus, then Cody Rhodes' music hit and he came out. Sheamus had Cody hung up on the ropes punching him in his chest like he does and referee Jack Doan counted to 5 and Sheamus didn't break the hold so he disqualified Sheamus, and Cody retains his belt.
The third match of the night was Jack Swagger, accompanied by Vickie, and they called out anyone who would fight Swagger for the belt. R Truth came out and beat Swagger, then Otunga came out and said that the match was a non-title match so Truth had to give the belt back to Swagger, which he did by shoving it in his chest.
Barrett came out bragging about how he put Randy Orton out of action and how he's challenging one of Orton's old pals in Legacy, Ted Dibiase. Dibiase came out and stood on top of the stage, then Orton came out to a huge pop and ran to the ring to beat down Barrett. Kofi, Primo, Epico, JTG and Santino all came down to hold them apart from beating each other up and they did that for a few minutes. Kofi, JTF and Epico all ate an RKO for their efforts. Santino was the last one in the ring and calmly but humorously left the ring not wanting to be RKO'd. The fight spilled into the crowd but not really, Barrett jumped the rail and so did Orton, Orton got a punch or two in and threw Barrett back over. Orton got on all four turnbuckles and posed.
After that Daniel Bryan and Big Show fought for the World Heavyweight Championship. Solid match between the two. Show hit the WMD on Bryan and went for the pin, David Otunga and Drew McIntyre came in and started beating down the Big Show as the ref was counting to two. They got a double chokeslam for their efforts. Show won via DQ, but Bryan retains.
Next up was Kane vs Cena, typical match between the two, Kane got DQ'd for using the chair on Cena and hit Cena with a choke slam. Kane gets to the ramp and comes back and wants some more of Cena and Cena hits Kane with an AA. The crowd was about 60-40 Cena. "Let's Go Cena / Cena Sucks" chants going on throughout the match, the crowd was hot for this match all throughout.
Justin Roberts thanked us for being a great crowd, he said by the looks of the attendance that they would be back to Las Cruces, but they didn't announce a return date. They come to Las Cruces once a year so I'm sure they'll be back later this year, or for sure next year. They were just in El Paso in September with the Raw brand.
Miz and Punk fought for the WWE Championship, another solid match. Punk hit Miz with the GTS for the three count. Punk had the crowd in the palm of his hand, everyone was cheering for him and chanting his name throughout the match and everything. He went around ringside shaking hands with people and signed a few autographs, I got to shake his hand and pat his shoulder, so that was awesome. Out of a 1-10 I'd rate the show a 9 since it was my first Supershow at a house show.
