I just got back from the WWE Live Event at the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach, FL just a few hours ago. Before the matches began, Tony Chimel, who shared ring announcing duties with Byron Saxton for the evening, introduced the audience to Buckethead, who is a DJ on RealRadio 104.1 FM in Orlando. He was accompanied by three fans who were trying to win ringside seats for the event. They had to say The Miz's catchphrase, and then we, the rest of the fans, had to determine who would win the seats. In the end, some guy named Al won the seats. Anyway, onto the matches.
Match #1: Curtis Axel defeated The Miz via countout to retain the Intercontinental Championship.
Afterwards, Antonio Cesaro and Zeb Colter came to the ring. Zeb said that he disliked being here in Jacksonville, then realizing that it was Daytona Beach instead. He said his usual stuff about foreigners not speaking English, and that Cesaro was a "Real American" as he came into the country the right way. He then challenged anyone in the back, counting down from 10 to 0, to come out and face Cesaro. He got down to 1 when Dolph Ziggler's music hit. He ran to the ring and started to attack Cesaro. Cesaro and Colter then left the ringside area, and Ziggler accepted the challenge later on in the evening.
Match #2: Ted DiBiase defeated Heath Slater via a roll-up.
Tony Chimel then announced that the Ziggler/Cesaro match would be a "Fan's Choice" match. The choices were 2 out of 3 falls and No Disqualification match.
Match #3: Layla and Kaitlyn defeated AJ and Aksana when Kaitlyn speared Aksana.
Match #4: The Great Khali defeated Epico and Primo in an Espenhart Special, aka Handicap match
Match #5: Sheamus defeated Big E Langston w/AJ via the Brogue Kick
Match #6: The Usos defeated The Prime Time Players via a Superfly Splash.
Then, we found out what stipulation the fans chose for Ziggler/Cesaro. It was No DQ. Shocking, I know.
Match #7: Dolph Ziggler defeated Antonio Cesaro in a No Disqualification match via the Zig Zag.
Before the main event began, Wade Barrett got on the mic and said that he was on a bit of a losing streak. You think? Anyways, he then ran down Daytona, calling it a wannabe Jersey Shore.
Match #8: Randy Orton defeated Wade Barrett via the RKO.
1. Randy Orton
2. Dolph Ziggler
1. Zeb Colter
2. Antonio Cesaro (because of Colter)
3. Wade Barrett
I don't know if anything happened after the end of the match as my friend and I left the arena after the 3-count. As far as I know, they didn't mention when they will be back in town, which if it's like last, it will be another 3 years. The arena was about half full as there were a lo of empty seats throughout the arena. I do have to say that the stage setup that the WWE has for there house shows do make the event seem a little bit bigger than what it's actually is. I had a fun time at the event, and I hope this was informative.
Also, some of the NXT wrestlers where there as well. They were Adrian Neville, Corey Graves, Paige, Emma, Sasha Banks, and Mojo Rawley. They were available for autographs during intermission. I wish that some of them were in some matches tonight, as well.
