WWE Raw House Show Detailed Results
It was a great show with many intersting parts, i know the following is a lot to read but i hope you do read it as some parts were interesting. Including crowd attacks, boo’s for Cena & the amazing Kelly Kelly.
I was in attendance for the WWE Raw show in Dublin, Ireland last night. This is the first time WWE has performed in the newly built o2 Arena, they did perform in the building before its reconstruction. The arena previously held around 3,000 people. For the show last night it held around 9,000 people while for concerts it can hold up to 14,000.
Before the show in the arena there were lots of woooooooooooo!! chants going around. There was a great atmosphere all night. The show was completly sold out.
Match 1 – Kofi Kingston vs The Miz – They worked well & the match was really just to get the sell out crowd going. It worked too, Kofi is a great performer & both superstars got great reactions from the crowd.
Match 2 – Kelly Kelly & Melina vs Layla & Beth Phoenix (w/ Rosa Mendes) – Seeing Kelly in person was the best part of the night. She looks even better in person. When her music hit, the crowd went nuts!
Match 3 – Santino vs ?? – Santino comes to the ring to a huge roar from the crowd, he is very much liked in Dublin. He got a great ovation. He got on the mic & talked about Santina before issuing a challenge to anyone in the back. That challenge was accepted by Goldust. Most of the kids there had no idea who he was, he did get a good ovation from the older fans. The match went on for about 5 minutes with Santino mostly running from Goldust. Goldust won with a suplex, sort of like Goldberg’s jackhammer.
Match 4 – William Regal vs CM Punk – Regal was heavily booed as he came out, this was because he is from England & there is not much love between the English & the Irish. He did’nt make it any better when he forced Tony Chimel to announce that he was representing Blackpool, England. Regal was hated so much that he got a bear thrown on him as he entered. The guy that did it got thrown out. CM Punk came out to a big road.I read about how Regal is really aggresive in the ring & hits realy punches, well after last night I can confirm that this is true, he really doesn’t do the "hollywood style" punches that look real but are fake, Regal actually hits his opponents, the noise of his hits echoed around the arena. He won with a roll up.
Tony Chimel tells us there is 10 minute break, I got myself a Santino shirt. 30 Euro, not bad considering it was 20 Euro for a programme. It think i will get more use out of the T-Shirt.
We come back to Tag Title Match
Intercontinental Championship Match
World Heavyweight Title Match
Biggest Cheers (in no order) –
All round a good show, I enjoyed it. The recent draft picks did not come into effect during this tour. I hope to get tickets for the DX tour at the end of the year
