Thanks to Gus and Mike Simpson for the following reports from today's WWE live event in Newark, Delaware:
* Bo Dallas defeated Zack Ryder.
* The Ascension defeated Xavier Woods and R-Truth. Almost no reaction for The Ascension here but they looked good.
* Nikki Bella defeated Rosa Mendes.
From Mike Simpson:
* Triple Threat for US Title: Sheamus vs Cesaro vs Jack Swagger. Sheamus gets the win after hitting the Brogue Kick on Swagger. Before the match, Zeb cut a promo on immigrants.
* Bo Dallas vs Zach Ryder was next. The match was OK, and Bo cut a really good "Bo-lieve" promo before and after the match. The simulated crying was fantastic.
* Nikki Bella defeat Rosa Mendes. Typical Divas match, nothing really special.
* There were two promos, one from Seth Rollins hyping his match with Dean Ambrose. The second was Ambrose doing the same.
* Seth Rollins vs Dean Ambrose: good back and forth match between the two, I was highly entertained. Ambrose gets the DQ win after Rollins keeps kicking him in the corner.
* The Ascension defeat R-Truth and Xavier Woods in a decent match. R-Truth and Woods really know how to work a crowd and they got them into the match with a pretty much unknown team. Cool finisher though by The Ascension.
* The Great Khali vs Titus O'Neil: Titus cut a good promo on him being the only dog in the building everyone else were puppies, ugly, fat, lazy, etc. Khali wins very easy and then Titus did the same routine as with Adam Rose where he calls Khali back to the ring only to lose again.
* Los Matadores beat Heath Slater, Tyson Kidd and Hornswoggle with Damien Sandow as their manager. Sandow's promo on Newark, Delaware being second class to Newark, New Jersey was very well done. Sad note, one of the Los Matadores, I couldn't tell which one, hurt his knee.. It looked bad, the ref made the traditional X to the back twice. After the match the trainers had to carry him to the back, and he could put no weight on the leg at all.
Roman Reigns defeated Randy Orton: Awesome match! Orton dominated most of the match until going for the punt at the end and getting speared by Reigns to get the win.
1) Roman Reigns
3) Dean Ambrose
1) Seth Rollins
2) Randy Orton
3) Damien Sandow
The Carpenter Center can hold about 5,000. I would say it was half full. Overall good show, first time to a live event in years had a great time.
