Bray wyatt was in his rocking chair, but also lay on the stage and on the steps at various points in the match when he got involved. There were two big hot tags for Punk and Bryan, but the Wyatts must have stalled it for about 15 minutes. Eventually chaos broke loose and Bray came into the ring, and Punk was about to GTS Bray but got stopped by Luke Harper. Luke got hit with Bryan's knee to the face, and Punk hit the GTS on Erick Rowan for the win to a huge pop. Punk stayed on the ground on his knees after the pin with his head on the floor. The ref attended to him and Bryan also got down and checked on punk. It seemed like a minor injury and he seemed okay walking back, but he did leave the stage about two minutes before Bryan while Bryan was high fiving everyone.
15 minute break
The Usos def. 3MB (Drew McIntyre & Heath Slater)
Once again a standard tag team match, with Heath playing around to the crowd doing his 3MB taunt and one of the Usos did it back to him, haha. Usos won after a super kick and a double samoan slam. Lots of loud "U-SO" chants.
Curtis Axel def. R-Truth (Intercontinental Championship Match)
R-Truth came out to some heavy cheers, although when he chanted "What's up," a few people in my row as well as myself were chanting, "you suck!" Back and forth action with Axel stalling at the start. Axel wins with an exposed turnbuckle and his finisher.
John Cena def. Alberto Del Rio (World Heavyweight Championship)
Del Rio came out to heavy cheers by the people I went with, haha. Cena came out to heavy boo's with the standard "lets go Cena" / "Cena sucks" chants. Cena was getting heckled by three people dressed as the Wyatts. Cena went out of the ring and went to their side of the ring as they were chanting "Cena killed wrestling." Cena asked them what moves they wanted him to do, and they replied, "anything but your shoulder tackle!"
Cena went back in and wrestled. Early on, Cena irish whipped Del Rio to the corner and seemed to injure his ankle, it seemed like his Achilles heel. I have seen thousands of matches and Cena kept rolling out of the ring while Del Rio was stalling for time by pandering to the fans and actually acknowledging the fans that cheered him. Del Rio attacked the leg, but rarely went for the ankle and targeted the shin. Cena tried a very quick AA about five minutes mins in the match but Del Rio countered. Cena tried the 5 moves of doom, but fell after running to do the shoulder block. Cena rolled in the corner and the ref called the X and the doctor came in. Del Rio grabbed the world title and went on the turnbuckle with it. The match continued for about 10 minutes with Cena even going to the top rope and doing some signature moves, but he was keeping his weight off the ankle. One attempt at the AA seemed to be aborted as his ankle gave way. Cena won with the AA after many counters. TYPICAL, Del Rio should have had the world title as the ref called the x, even though it was a house show, lol!
Anyways, one of the fans dressed as the Wyatts threw his hat at Cena, which came near him and he got kicked by security for it. Cena picked it up then got a mic and cut a promo and said, "do people see this hat? what I see is the wyatt family..." Then he started naming people dressed up in the crowd, the Goldust guy, IRS, Superman, etc. Cena talked about how enthusiastic and passionate we all were, etc. Very good promo, seemed to have everyone pro-Cena by the end of it. Cena walked out fine after the match.
All in all, good show!
