The building was 2/3 full at one point, but I looked around as the opening bell rang and I swear it was full.
As the show started they announced John Cena would not be there and that refunds would be during for the first two matches only. The amount of sad faced kids was impressive but nobody left that I could see. ?
1. The Shield defeated The Wyatt Family. Huge reaction for both teams. The Shield got the win.
2. Big E defeated The Miz to retain the Intercontinental Title. Big E got the win in a fairly uneventful bout. I don't agree with a lot of folks about the Miz. He definitely gets a good reaction.
3. Dolph Ziggler and Emma beat Fandango and Summer Rae. Good pairing of Ziggler and Emma. The crowd was doing the Emmalution dance. It was amusing. Ziggler and Emma won and got to celebrate by giving me five. Okay, they probably didn't really care that much, but they did celebrate with bubbles.
4. Cody Rhodes and Goldust defeated The Real Americans, and Xavier Woods and R-Truth in a Triple Threat tag team elimination match. Great action here. Cesaro hit the swing on Goldust. The Americans eliminated R-Truth and Woods when Swagger made Woods tap to the ankle lock. Goldie and Cody then beat the Real Americans.
5. Layla and Eva Marie beat Aksana and Alicia Fox. This was a fans choice Divas match. They told us to tweet #divastag or #divasdance. Really? WHO VOTED FOR A DANCE OFF? Layla and Eva Marie won. Um…that's it.
6. Sheamus defeated Damien Sandow. Sheamus won via Brogue Kick. After the match Sandow demanded respect or he was going to challenge someone from the back to show why we should respect him. Cue the Big Show.
7. Big Show beat Damien Sandow. Huge pop for Show, knock out punch, Show wins. My friends and I couldn't help but notice Show seemed like he was moving with a bit of pain on his face.
8. Bad News Barrett beat Kofi Kingston. Barrett appreciate's very much the decorum of fans demonstrating the Queen's wave. So much in fact he laughed mid promo and waved back to us. Kofi had a good showing, but I'm afraid I've got some bad news… Barrett won by Bull-Hammer while Kofi was coming off the top. Quick match.
9. Daniel Bryan beat Kane. It's pretty amazing to see the Yes Movement in full effect live. Tremendous reaction. Kane really does a great job of being a bad guy. His experience pays off as the fans ALL booed him. Good, competitive match. Bryan was on the comeback when out came Ryback. Bryan started getting the better of him and out came The Real Americans. A beat down ensued until The Shield made the save. The arena was crazy loud for Daniel Bryan and The Shield. Kane rolled in the ring and made like he was going to hit a chair shot on Bryan until Reigns leveled him with a spear. Bryan hit the running knee for the win. Great way to send us home happy.
