I went to this show last night. It was a really hyped crowd! Before the show started there were a lot of "YES!" chants and "WOOOOO!" chants. Real good fun.
Justin Roberts welcomed everyone to the show.
"The Funkasaurus" Brodus Clay vs Jack Swagger
It wasn't much of a wrestling match, but the fans were really hyped they didn't care. They were into the match. Cameron was there, which was a surprise after her DUI arrest. Clay won with a running splat.
Daniel Bryan appeared on the screen, and I swear, Brisbane lost it. It seriously sounded like Miami after Wrestlemania. So many "YES!" chants. Daniel Bryan explained that everyone should stop saying yes, and that he will destroy Zack Ryder tonight.
Zack Ryder vs Daniel Bryan
Solid match. Ryder actually won with a Rough Ryder. A few guys in our section started a "Goat Face" chant, and everyone got into that. During the match, Bryan asked Justin Roberts for everyone to stop calling him Goat Face. Didn't help.
Intercontinental Championship match - The Miz (c) vs Alex Riley
The Miz cut a promo before the match, explaining last time he was in Brisbane, he defended and left as a champion. This time he'll do the same. Alex Riley got one of the greatest pops of the night as a matter of fact. Really over. Miz won with the Skull Crushing Finale.
Afterwards, Tensai came out and took down A-Ry. Me and my friend chanted "A-Train" and he told me to shut up on the microphone. He opens a challenge to anyone in the back, and he explains that he can wait all night...
WWE Tag Team Championship Match - Kofi Kingston and R-Truth (c) vs Primo and Epico w/ Rosa Mendas
R-Truth must have a new rap. It must be the Little Jimmy rap he was meant to write a few months ago, because he came out rapping about Little Jimmy. Ultra fun match! Lot of high flying action. Epico and Primo actually won the match. Kingston had his foot on the rope but Rosa pushed it off.
AJ came out, to a big pop. Man she's smaller than I thought she would be too. She restarted the match. Straight away, Kingston and Truth both hit their finishers to win.
WWE Divas Championship - Layla (c) vs Rosa Mendes
Worst match. They danced for five minutes before any action got underway. Layla won with a kick to the head. Boring. Typical divas match.
David Otunga vs Santino Marella
Chris Masters... whoops, I meant David Otunga... Could have sworn it was Masters though with his posing. Santino did some comedy before hitting The Cobra to win.
Tensai came back out and hit his finisher on Santino. AJ then came out again, and said she has a challenge for Tensai, and said, "get him boys". Brodus Clay, R-Truth, Kofi Kingston and Zack Ryder ran out and they all hit their finishers on him, including Santino.
In the video promos a week before the show, it was meant to be an extreme rules match, and I was upset that they scratched that.
