WWE House Show Results
Solid house show. Very fast paced as they kept the action moving with little interruption.
R-Truth defeated Mike Knox by pin. Being the opening match of the show, Killings got a nice pop coming out.
Goldust defeated Vance Archer by pin. I would like to formally request the services of a search party to locate Lance Hoyt’s missing charisma. The differences between this guy and the guy that used to work in the Impact Zone are frightening.
At the conclusion of the previous bout, the Hart Dynasty beat down Goldust which carried over into Cryme Tyme defeating Kidd and Smith by pin. The match was clearly at its high point when Kidd was in the ring with JTG. Solid work overall.
Matt Hardy defeated Finlay by pin. It appeared it was starting out as a battle of faces. Finlay appeared to be injured during the bout as there was a prolonged stoppage in the middle of the match. However, it was a work designed for Finlay to kick Hardy and turn heel. One twist of fate later and it was over. Interestingly, the injury spot lasted longer then the total action in the match. Finlay got some nice heat after the fact from the fans for the way he turned on Hardy. I loved it. His facial expressions and his mannerisms switched before my very eyes. It made me appreciate Finlay so much more then I already do.
John Morrison defeated Dolph Ziggler by pin. Great match but then again, these guys are incredible athletes. Easily the second best match on this show. We were treated to the return of the "Mr. Ziggles" chant on this evening. Nemeth was great in his crowd interaction. Very solid work and the high point of the evening leading into the intermission.
Lots of families here for this early show. Tons of Mysterio and Cena merchandise floating around. Clearly one can see why a Cena or Mysterio heel turn isn’t happening any time soon, if ever. Sadly, it would be something that would probably freshen up both individuals as it’s done wonders for Batista but the merchandise train for these two isn’t slowing down at all and it appears that Sacramento contributed as greatly as it could to their individual merchandise earnings.
After the break, Kane defeated Ezekiel Jackson by pin. My God, we DO NOT want to see this program. I’ve already seen enough with this one match. Awful.
Michelle McCool defeated Beth Phoenix by pin to retain the Women’s Championship. Good mic work by McCool to generate heat prior to the match. She shoved Savannah around to play the bully even referring to her as "Angela" at one point. Crowd was really into booing the mere mention of "Simply Flawless."
