Many people at the Prudential Center, myself included, were disappointed with the lineup here compared to the Michigan show lineup and displayed their frustrations after the main event. Still, I must say that live, non-televised events turn out so much better than the taped events due to the wrestlers interacting much more with the fans and getting the fans more involved. It was evident that they weren't held back by the restraints of a show being filmed. Overall I had a great time even if I didn't get to see CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, The Shield, The Wyatts nor AJ Lee in action.
3MB vs The Real Americans vs Los Matadores in a Triple-Threat Tag team elimination match with the winning team getting a shot at the Rhodes Brothers for the tag team titles later on in the show:
3MB came out to big boos but The Real Americans and Los Matadores came out to nice pops from the crowd. This was a fun match all around with Los Matadores eliminating 3MB and being eliminated by a Jack Swagger ankle lock. Many " We, The People" chants shared with The Real Americans throughout the match.
Sin Cara vs El Local:
The crowd didn't really know what to make of El Local. Sin Cara came out to a nice pop from the crowd. This was a decent match with a few cool moves and Sin Cara getting the win.
Brie Bella vs Alicia Fox in a Christmas LumberJill match:
Kaitlyn, Rosa, Aksana, The Funkadactyls (dressed in their Christmas attire) and Nikki surround the ring. Alicia comes out to not much of a reaction from the crowd while Brie comes out to a surprising huge pop from the crowd. This is actually a very fun and entertaining match with the divas on the outside getting very much involved throughout the match. The crowd was very much into this match the entire way. Brie put on a wrestling clinic handling Alicia all over the ring. Alicia hit some impressive maneuvers but Brie had the crowd very much behind her and hit her finisher for the win.
Axel comes out to big boos from the crowd and continually argued with fans for continuous boos. He drew lots of heat the entire match. The Great Khali received a nice pop and had the crowd behind him the entire way. This was a surprisingly entertaining match. They both drew continuous reactions from the crowd, Axel by continuously running away from Khali. Once Khali finally got his hands on Axel, he dominated the match and eventually got the win with his chop to the head.
The Real Americans vs The Rhodes Brothers for the WWE Tag Team Championship:
Zeb Colter opens up with his usual talk of illegal immigrants and talks about hearing Spanish speaking people as soon as he arrived at the Newark airport. The crowd ate it up, especially the many Latinos in the crowd. This was an awesome match just like the ones we've come to know and love from these two teams. The crowd was into this one from beginning to end. Lots of back-and-forth action and quick tags from The Real Americans as they cornered Golddust for quite some time. Cody finally tags in and and hits a moonsault on Cesaro almost pinning him and later hits Cross Rhodes on Swagger for the win.
This was pretty much a throwaway match. Ryder came into a decent ovation while Clay came out to some boos from the crowd. Clay dominated the match until Ryder snuck in a quick rollup for the win.
