Match 1: Brodus Clay defeat Michael McGillicutty in the opening match with a T-Bone Suplex follow by a splash off the ropes.
Match 2: Eve comes and out says she is sorry for her recent behavior and invites Kelly Kelly to be her partner against the Bella Twins. Towards the end of the match, Kelly goes for the hot tag and Eve walks out on her. Kelly wins the match anyway after getting a roll up on Nikki Bella.
Match 3: US Title Match - Jack Swagger (c) vs Mason Ryan: Mason got a large pop, to my surprise. Good back and forth match. Towards the end, Swagger gave Ryan a spear to the knee and then rolled him into the ankle lock for the win.

Here's another report from WrestlingINC.com reader Kyle Calvo:
The show is sold out and there is a long waiting line to get into the auditorium. Traffic was backed up getting into the auditorium. Outside there was a National Guard attraction while we waited to enter the auditorium.
-National Guard Members on each side of the bleachers having the crowd cheer whenever they signaled for it.
The actual show started around 5:15pm. We were welcomed by Justin Roberts followed by the National Anthem with a flag appearing on the live event stage that WWE has been using at house shows.
The first match of the evening was Brodus Clay vs Michael McGillicutty. It was a pretty good match to start the show. Brodus was over with the crowd as McGillicutty was booed by the crowd. The finish came about 7 minutes into the match when Brodus hit McGillicutty with a body splash. Bangor loved the funkasaurus.
Next match was a divas tag team match with Eve & Kelly Kelly vs The Bella twins. Before the match Eve cut a promo saying she was trying to let Zack Ryder know that she just wanted to be friends and is trying to gain back the crowd's respect. The crowd started chanting "Hoeski" during her promo. Out came Kelly Kelly to a great reaction from the crowd. Out next were the Bella Twins. This was actually a good divas match compared to matches seen on tv. They had time to work the crowd and get over. Eve left at the ending of the match leaving the Bella Twins vs Kelly Kelly. The finish saw Kelly Kelly hit one of the Bella Twins off the ring apron and roll up the other twin for the win. Wish diva matches like this could appear on tv more often.
