WINNER: Alberto Del Rio
Good, solid tag team affair. Nice to see the mid carders able to showcase their skills and some obvious talent. Santino was on top form throughout with some awesome comedy spots. Santino got the win after hitting the Cobra and getting a huge pop in the process. Fun match to lighten the mood after the intense No DQ match.
WINNERS: Santino & Alex Riley
Intercontinental Championship: Drew McIntyre vs Wade Barrett
Drew attacked Justin Gabriel from behind and took him out of the match, saying that he felt far more deserving of the title shot than the South African highflier. Drew got a lot of heat for putting down the Welsh crowd, recently promoted football team Cardiff City FC and Wade Barrett's Cardiff roots. Huge pop for Barrett.
Match felt flat in places, which was a shame, as it was one of the matches that had the potential to be a show stealer. The arrival of Justin Gabriel to fend off Jinder Mahal woke the crowd up after a false finish, courtesy of a kick out of Barrett's Wasteland/Barrett Barrage. Wade picked up the 3 count to retain his title after hitting the Bullhammer as McIntyre came off the top rope. Another big pop for the 'local' boy.
WINNER AND STILL IC CHAMPION: Wade Barrett
Lilian Garcia pumped Extreme Rules next month on PPV and then promoted WWE's next UK tour in November and thanked the fans for being so great throughout the night.
Orton out to a HUGE pop, always a big reaction for Orton when I've seen him wrestle in Cardiff. Decent showing between the two men, who are obviously no strangers to one another. Show refused to start the match and waited on the outside for what seemed like ages, agitating the crowd no end.
Orton hit the rope-hook DDT, took the Chokeslam from the Worlds Largest Athlete and then countered the big KO Punch to hit the RKO to a huge ovation, picking up the win and giving everyone a feel good end to the show.
WINNER: Randy Orton.
Considering that this live event fell on the same night as a live RAW taping in London, I didn't think star-power would be all there, but I was surprised and certainly not disappointed.
Great to have The Shield and Fandango pulling double-duty and giving depth to the show. Can only imagine the pop Dolph Ziggler would have had.
Overall, I'd give this a 7.5/10
Match of the night: NO DQ - Alberto Del Rio vs. Jack Swagger
Biggest Pops: Randy Orton, New Age Outlaws, Fandango, The Shield
Most heat: Zeb Colter, Primo & Epico, Drew McIntyre
