Winners: Daniel Bryan and Christian
Following the match, the faces chase off the heels. Christian gets the mic. Some guy yells, "I love you, Christian!" and Christian says, "I love you, too. You don't know how much I missed you guys." Goes through a speech involving how he always used to ask for "one more match," and I thought he was challenging Bryan to come back to the ring and have a match with him. But instead he was asking Bryan for a hug.
Bryan refused to give him a hug, however, because he was concerned that Kane would get jealous. Christian persisted. Bryan said he'd give him a handshake. That wasn't good enough for the crowd. Bryan waffled for a second, and said he'd do it if everyone put away their phones, cameras, and kept the info off the Internet. When he realized that wouldn't happen, though, he went into a "NO!" fit, and held out his hand for a handshake. Christian shook hands with him, then pulled him in for a quick hug, and ran off to the back while Bryan had a tantrum. Entertaining.
C'mon, you know who wins this one. Bray acted really weird, the guy in the jumpsuit wore his sheep mask the whole time. The crowd didn't really know how to react, so this was the quietest match of the night. Wyatt won pretty easily with his finisher.
Winner: Bray Wyatt
Paul Heyman comes onto the little screens that pass for the Titan Tron, and goes through a speech about how he's not there tonight, not because he couldn't, but because he didn't want to associate himself with the people in our community. Never actually said the word "Bismarck," so I'm assuming they play that video at every show. He introduces his newest client, and Intercontinental Heavyweight champ, Curtis Axel, for the next match.
Curtis Axel v. The Miz
This one went on a long time. Admittedly, I'm not a huge fan of either guy, so I went to look for the merch table. Bought the only Brock Lesnar merch available, a t- shirt, and got back to my seat, and the match was still going. Miz got Axel into the figure four, although he fell down while trying to put it on. (Vintage Miz!) Both guys ended up outside the ring, the ref did his count, and Axel got it in just before the 10. Axel wins by count out.
Winner: Curtis Axel
Don't worry. Miz got his heat back by hitting the Skull Crushing Finale on Axel.
You can probably imagine how this match went. Lots of punches and their usual spots. Sheamus had troubles finding tables underneath the ring. That didn't help him. Eventually, Ryback had Sheamus up on his shoulders for Shell Shock, but Sheamus slid out and hit Ryback with the Brogue Kick, and he fell back and through a table set up in the corner.
1. Daniel Bryan
2. Yoshi Tatsu (No joke)
1. The Shield
3. Curtis Axel
Good show. I hope they come back soon, and bring CM Punk. I sent a tweet to Daniel Bryan to come to Denny's if he wanted to meet my friend, who is in all likelihood the only vegan in our city. No dice. So that was certainly a bummer.
