|By Raj Giri||February 11, 2013 | Comments|
The event started off with everyone rising for the National Anthem. There was a poll for the main event champion vs. champion match Alberto Del Rio and Wade Barret. The choices were either No DQ or 2 out of 3 falls.
Kofi Kingston vs. Heath Slater was the first match. Kofi came out to a great pop while 3MB came out to major heat. Back and forth match with some Kofi Kingston air guitar and 3MB involvement. Drew McIntyre and Jinder Mahal are eventually sent to the back, and the match continues. Match ends when Heath Slater goes to jump off the top turnbuckle and Kofi catches him with the Trouble in Paradise.
Aksana vs Alicia Fox is next. Very poor match, the crowd wasn't into it. Alicia Fox hit Aksana with an axe kick to win the match.
Fandango and Yoshi Tatsu are up next. A lot of people used this match as an intermission break. Fandango ended up picking up the victory, but the crowd was dead quiet.
Up next was the handicap match with The Shield taking on Randy Orton and Sheamus. Sheamus and Randy came out to massive pops. Very good match with The Shield in control for the most part. The match ended when The Shield started ganging up on Randy while Sheamus tried to even the odds. Eventually the Shield bring in a chair and attempt to use it on Randy, but Sheamus Brogue Kicks the chair in Seth Rollins' face. Then all of The Shield take RKO's and Brogue Kicks to send them packing. Orton and Sheamus won the match via disqualification. Sheamus and Randy hung around for about 10 minutes to sign autographs and signs and give high fives to the kids.
The next match saw Drew McIntyre and Jinder Mahal take on The Great Khali and Sin Cara. Sin Cara came out to a great pop, while 3MB got major heat again. Back and forth match that ended when The Great Khali gave Jinder Mahal a Punjabi Plunge.
Brodus Clay vs Conner O' Brian was announced. Brodus came out to a decent pop, but Conner O' Brian came out and cut a heel promo. This match was more comic, with Brodus dancing around and taunting Conner. Match ended with Brodus hitting his splash to defeat Conner. Brodus didn't bring any kids in the ring to dance with him, and I was surprised. He brought the announcer in to dance though.
The main event between Alberto Del Rio and Wade Barret was voted to be a NO DQ match. Alberto came out to a decent pop while Wade got major heat. He cut a heel promo before the match. The match itself was great, although Wade looked like he dislocated his shoulder early on. Kendo sticks, a chair, a table and Ricardo's bucket were used. Match ended when Wade and Alberto were on the top turnbuckle with the table set out in front of it. Wade was gonna send Alberto through the table but Ricardo hit him with his bucket which allowed Alberto to bulldog Wade through the table and retain his title to send the fans home happy. Afterward Alberto posed with his title for a bit and spent some time with the fans before exiting.
Biggest Pops: Sheamus, Orton and Sin Cara
Biggest Heat: 3MB, Wade Barrett and The Shield.
