Another Set Of Results From Last Night's WWE Live Event: Ryback Suffers Upset Loss, John Cena Absent
Winners: Christian, RVD and Mark Henry
Dolph Ziggler vs. Big E Langston - No DQ
The crowd seemed like they really picked up after the Shield match, even with the intermission. Right from the start, Big E knocked Ziggler around before grabbing a kendo stick. Ziggler took a beating, and the fight spilled out to where I was. Ziggler took a lot of the blows, and when the action got back in the ring nothing changed. Ziggler ended up getting the kendo stick and hit Big E three times before going for a pin, but Big E kicked out. At this point, Big E went over to Maddox and stole Maddox' chair, then set it up in the corner. Big E took Ziggler and tossed him right into it. At one point, AJ went into the ring and nailed Ziggler with the kendo stick, but Ziggler then kicked out of the pin attempt. AJ got right in the ref's face, and she was kicked out. Big E went for the Big Ending, but Ziggler slipped out and nailed the Zig Zag.
Winner: Dolph Ziggler
Curtis Axel and Paul Heyman came down to the ring, and Heyman cut a promo. The crowd was so loud that Heyman didn't even start for a few minutes. Even when he started to talk, I couldn't hear a word he said because of the heat. However, when the heat started to die and he told us that the Title would not be on the line because Axel refused to defend the title in the state of Oregon.
Curtis Axel vs. CM Punk
An a very even match, both got their offense in. Punk spent a little time trying to get to Heyman, but Axel was able to step in and break it up each time. Punk made Axel tap with the Anaconda Vice, but Heyman was distracting the ref and the match went on. Axel hit Punk with the belt, but Punk kicked out of that. I can't exactly remember how the match ended, (I believe Punk rolled up Axel) but somehow or another, Axel got angry at the ref and Heyman got in the ring as well. When Axel bolted, Punk and Heyman were left alone. The crowd was going crazy, and Punk juiced the crowd while Heyman was freaking out. Axel jumped back in and Heyman was able to get away. Punk quickly hit a GTS and then Axel and Heyman retreated. Punk cut a minute-long promo on Brock and Heyman.
Bryan worked the crowd really well, and Del Rio got a ton of heel heat. The match contained a lot of submissions, but spilled out to the outside for a little bit. The biggest spot was a suicide dive by Bryan, which was crazy to see. Del Rio controlled, but Bryan mounted a comeback. Del Rio hit a crazy backbreaker on Bryan, and then cut a promo on how the crowd should love him because he's the champion. This was followed by a small 'Si' chant, but the match went on. Del Rio went for a CAB, but Bryan reversed it to the LaBell lock. Del Rio tried to get to the ropes, but ended up grabbing the mic (Not sure why it was still in the ring) and hit Bryan with it. After the match, Bryan put a LaBell Lock on Del Rio, who then quickly ran away.
Winner: Bryan by DQ
Bryan stayed to cut a promo, although it was very short. Bryan talked about how he grew up right next to here and when he comes back next it will be with the WWE Championship. He made a victory lap around the ring and high fived everyone around the ring.
Maddox was ringside the entire time, as he was multitasking with GM and Ring Announcer duties.
The little kids were really disappointed when they found out Cena wouldn't be there, but they still had quite a bit of fun it seemed like.
I saw Orton and Sheamus around the arena in the concourse during intermission, although neither of them came out during the show. I was expecting Orton to interrupt the Main Event, although that never happened. I understand Sheamus not coming out though.
With this being my first wrestling show, I was shocked to see how interactive the wrestlers were. All the faces interacted around the ring and it was pretty fun. My personal highlight was Daniel Bryan coming up and high fiving me after his match.
1. CM Punk
2. Daniel Bryan
Those were the two biggest by far
3. Rob Van Dam
4. Dolph Ziggler
After that, it really dropped off. I'd say that maybe number 5 was R-Truth, although Mark Henry's was nice.
1. Paul Heyman. It wasn't close. Nobody could hear him speak, and every time he did anything it was met with boos.
2. Big E Langston
3. The Shield
