WWE House Show Results (3/19): Roanoke, VA

Nick Paglino

Thanks to Cody for sending in the following:

Had a chance to attend the live event in Roanoke tonight and thought I’d report the rundown on the show.

It was a pretty good show tonight and I’ve been to over 10 WWE shows. Some faces/heels got mixed reactions. Mix of cheers and boos for both Chavo Guerrero and Drew McIntyre. Jack Swagger was really hated and used the expression "can I have your attention, please?" to perfection and the crowd really hated that. I wonder what question gets more heat now — "Excuse me?" or "Can I have your attention, please?" Swagger cut a big promo on how Michael Cole was going to beat Jerry Lawler at Wrestlemania with the ankle lock.

The night had a few slow moments. Crowd really died during the Percy Watson/Curt Hawkins match. You could have heard a pin drop. Had a few chants of "boring".

Best match of the night was probably Drew McIntyre and Kofi Kingston for the Intercontinental Championship. Really hate these two guys aren’t on the WM card yet. Both guys were very technically sound and wrestled a good match. Had quite a few fans of the "Chosen One" in the house.

Main event was a little slow, but have a great finish. Alberto Del Rio appeared as if he would deliver another concerto to the arm of Edge, but Christian showed up to save the day.

Edge pinning Cody Rhodes after a spear with Del Rio distracted on the outside.  After their match was over, Edge and Christian grabbed a fan’s sign in the crowd that read "Alberto Dorito", which was very funny. The two really spent a lot of time after the match high-fiving, shaking hands and even signing autographs.

Hottest selling item of the night were the "I Bring It" Rock t-shirts. Literally sold them down to the displays (and even sold those out as well).
