After the break, Zack Ryder came out to a good reception before his opponent Wade Barrett appeared to a huge pop in his home country. Barrett always receives a good reception in Newcastle and led to Ryder playing the heel role in this match as he tried to walk out on the match half way through. Barrett returned Ryder to the ring and Ryder began to take charge before Barrett hit the bull hammer for the win. Barrett returned to the back with a Huge reception while the boos ran round unfairly in my opinion for Ryder.
Next up, Damien Sandow came out to face Dolph Ziggler. Sandow cut a heel promo before hand saying he was still the uncrowned World Champion. Ziggler came out to a huge pop. Great match back and forth between both men trading blows before Sandow hit the 'Your Welcome' for the win. After the match Ziggler signed some photos and signs before heading to the back and being cheered back to his feet.
Main event of the night was for the WWE Title. Randy Orton up against the Big Show. Both men came out to huge pops and despite Orton playing the heel role, he seemed content to play along with some of the cheers. A slow start the match saw Orton dominate including hitting the top rope DDT to Show. Orton then prepped for the RKO before Show reversed and took control. He then set up for the WMD before Kane's music hit causing the distraction. Orton then hit the RKO for the victory before Kane made his way to the ring. As Orton began to celebrate Kane climbed in to the ring and raised Ortons hand before signalling for the Shield to come down. All four attacked Show while Kane made his way back up the ramp. They all beat down on Show before they set up for the triple power bomb. Show reversed and attacked the Shield before they all began to retreat to the back. Show stood tall and received a huge reception. Orton posed for photos without engaging the audience. Justin announced the end of the show before Big Show took the mic and thanked all the fans on behalf of the Superstars and said they always enjoy visiting Newcastle as they have done for 16 years. He said Newcastle Fans are the best in the world (Hahah true story).
Overall good show and really well thought out. Some fans disappointed as Daniel Bryan was advertised but was at Smackdown instead. Majority of fans went home happy.
