Arena had about 3,000-3,500 people in it. I had 1st row ringside seats on what would he camera side for Raw.
Sheamus defeated Cesaro and Jack Swagger in a triple threat match for the US Title. Excellent match that in my opinion was match of the night. Zeb cut a lengthy promo to start about illegals and how Scranton, PA was a real city. Next out was Cesaro (unfortunately no Paul Heyman). Sheamus was out last to a big pop. Cesaro worked the match as a heel. Ending saw Cesaro get out of the ankle lock and Swagger walked into a a Brogue Kick. After the match Cesaro sat in front of me for several minutes talking with the ref and then took his boot off and was helped to the back.
Bo Dallas defeated Zack Ryder. Bo cut one of his typical promos before the match. My section was full of BOlievers. Bo did 2 laps around the ring during the match which the crowd liked. Bo won with the bodog.
The Ascension defeated R-Truth and Xavier Woods. Okay match that saw the Ascension hit there finishing move on Truth.
Dean Ambrose defeated Seth Rollins by DQ. Rollins had a lot of heat and plenty of "you sold out" chants. Ambrose came out to a solid pop. Good back and forth match. These guys obviously have a good chemistry together. At the end of the match Ambrose feet were tied in the top rope and he hung upside down and Rollins continued to beat on him till he got dq'd. Rollins then went to use a chair until Ambrose countered and s ent Rollins running to the back.
Roman Reigns defeated Randy Orton. Very good match between these guys. Crowd was very into both guys. Reigns made his entrance 2 seats away from me which was cool. Good back and forth match. Ending saw reigns preparing for the spear until Rollins tried to interfere only to be stopped by Ambrose. Orton went for the punt kick but walked into a Spear and Reigns got the win.
After the match Ambrose came back out and Ambrose and Reigns celebrated. The crowd liked seeing The Shield together to end the show and popped big when the 2 of them put their fists together to symbolize The Shield.
Overall very good show.
1. Roman Reigns
3. Dean Ambrose
1. Seth Rollins
2. Randy Orton
3. Damien Sandow
From Thomas Leffler:
I was in the front row, and Rick the sign guy was 5 seats away from me. Very annoying in person, took the attention away from the other kids in the front. Rest of the Arena was about half-full.
Sheamus vs Cesaro vs Jack Swagger for the US Title to kick off the show. Hard-Hitting match that Sheamus won off the Brogue kick. Big cheers for Sheamus.
Bo Dallas out next with his usual Bolieve promo. He beat Zack Ryder with the Bo-Dog.
Seth Rollins promo up on the screen hyping his match with Dean Ambrose.
Nikki Bella beat Rosa Mendes.
