WWE House Show Results (8/16): Cape Girardeau, MO

Matt Boone

Matt Finney sent along the following:

Just got back from the 2nd WWE Show they have had in Cape Girardeau this year.  Show-Me Center holds about 6-7 thousand, with attendence being about 2500.  Poor turnout for the names that were on this show.  So, here we go with the results:
 
Chimmel comes out and thanks us for being apart of the WWE Universe.
 
First match, we see Chavo vs. Santino.  Santino with the usual funny stuff.  Back and forth match with Chavo locking Santino in the 3 amigos suplexes.  About to go for the win, but Hornswoggle comes out, distracts Chavo, and Santino rolls him up for the 1-2-3!!!
 
Next, Chimmel comes out and introduces the guest host for tonight………………… Kelly Kelly!!  Smokin hot- jeans with a cut-off top.  It’s weird though, b/c this would be the only time that she comes out.  I guess she got a headstart to St. Louis where Raw will be tomorrow night.
 
2nd match is Primo vs. Alex Riley?  Riley has a good look to him and I think he may be a future star.  Primo gets the win with a rollup.  Two rollups already?  The woman in front of us asks us if we ever come to these shows and asks if the matches will get better.  Stay home then lady!!
 
3rd match- Jamie Noble vs. The Miz-  I marked out for the Miz.  Miz gets the win with the full-nelson facebuster!!  Boy, Noble is a small dude.  Saw him in the lobby before the show started.  I was the only person that recognized him.  I said "Good luck Noble."  He said "Thanks."  Sweet, kick ass!!!
 
4th match was Evan Bourne vs. Jack Swagger.  Swagger dominates most of the match.  Swagger goes for his finisher, MVP comes out, distracts him, and Bourne hits the Air Bourne.  1-2-3.  Winner is Evan Bourne
 
5th is for the U.S. Title as Kofi Kingston defends against Carlito.  Longest match of the night as well as the best wrestled match of the night.  Kofi gets the win with the Trouble in Paradise.
 
Intermission time.  Thought about buying a t-shirt, but the merchandise stands were poor during this show.  Didnt have much at all.  And why are they selling that replica Spinner belt for $350?  You can buy a new one at most places for $299.
 
6th match is Rosa Mendes and Beth Phoenix vs. Gail Kim and Mickie James-  Mickie gets the pin on Rosa with the Mick Kick.
 
7th match is Mvp vs. Big Show.  Show gets the "W" with the chokeslam.  After the match, Swagger comes down and gives MVP the pump-handle slam. 
 
Main Event was Legacy(Orton, Rhodes, Dibiase vs. Mark Henry, Triple H, and John Cena.  Surprised that both Cena and Triple H were actually there.  Cape Girardeau shows are usually the ones that WWE takes advantage of the "Card Subject to Change" policy.  Pretty good match with Henry chasing Orton to the back.  Then, Cena hits the Attitude Adjustment on Cody and Triple H nails Dibiase with the Pedigree simultaneously.  Both cover and get the pin.  Winners- Cena, Henry, Triple H.
 
Biggest Pop-
1. Cena
2. Triple H
3. Hornswoggle (Yeah, I dont get it either.)
 
Biggest Heat
1. Legacy
2. Swagger
3. Alex Riley- He cut a pretty good promo before the match.  Nobody liked what he had to say.
 
Funny moment of the night.  There was a rotund gentleman in the front row that was letting Legacy have it.  He got Dibiase fired up.  Orton came over like he was trying to resolve the situation and in the process grabbed the guys hat off of his head and threw it about 15 rows back.  This happened 3 times during the match.  Guy wasnt even expecting it.  That guy was fired up. 
 
Overall rating- 6.5 out of 10
 
Hope you enjoy the results-
