Thanks to WrestlingINC.com reader Danny Schwartz ( @dajosc11 ) for sending in these results from tonight’s WWE live event in Detroit, MI:
There was decent attendance on ever floor. The lower level and club seats were mostly full, there was no one on the balcony level.
* Dolph Ziggler defeated Ryback via roll-up. On the stage, there was a holiday inflatable snowman and a tree. When Dolph came through the curtain and did his shtick, he seemed to accidentally injure his hand on a monitor. It seemed legit. He was holding his hand during the entire match and after it. Hope he’s ok. Ryback kicked the inflatable snowman off the stage after the match.
* Natalya defeated AJ Lee in a non-title match.
A Bad News Barrett video aired on the Tron
A Shield video also aired on the Tron
* Bad News Barrett defeated Tyson Kidd. Crowd was DEAD.
* Daniel Bryan & The Usos defeated the Wyatt Family in a Steel Cage Escape match. Incredible match.
* Big E Langston defeated Damien Sandow & R-Truth in a triple threat Intercontinental title bout. Langston pinned Sandow.
A Miz TV With Kofi Kingston set up a tag-team match against the Prime Time Players.
* The Prime Time Players defeated Kofi Kingston and The Miz after Kofi turned on The Miz. Kofi got a HUGE ovation.
* The crowd got to vote between a dance-off or a match between Mark Henry & Fandango. Mark Henry danced to “Billy Jean” by Micheal Jackson. Great reaction to it, and Fandango tried to attack him after, but Henry gave him the Worlds strongest Slam.
It was announced that WWE will be coming back to Detroit, Tuesday, March 4th, for Smackdown.
* CM Punk defeated Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns in 3 on 1 handicap match that went a solid 20-30 minutes. Way better than the ppv match. The Shield actually came through the crowd right next to me and I was 3 feet from them. Ambrose yelled at a kid and called him a nerd. Punk pinned Rollins.
After the show, Punk talked on the mic on how he loves Detroit and the people it stands for. Talks about how Detroit has hard work and is blue collar. He also said that Detroit and himself disagree on hockey teams from time to time, and he yelled at a guy wearing a Bruins jersey in the crowd. He says Detroit is a great wrestling town. He wishes everyone happy holidays and happy new year. He says thanks for coming and that he loves us. He then celebrated and high fived basically everyone i the first few rows. He sent the crowd home happy and that was it.
