WWE House Show Results (4/20): Newcastle, UK

Nick Paglino

WWE SmackdownThanks to Craig for sending in the following:

First of all there were "Yes!!!" chants all night!!!

Jinder Mahal vs Brodus Clay with Hornswoggle in Brodus attire.

The crowd boo Mahal but pop for Clay. Clay takes a few early hits but finishes strong with a huge splash on a prone Mahal. Clay stayed in the ring to dance with the girls and Hornswoggle.

Tyler Reks, Curt Hawkins and Drew McIntyre vs The Uso's and Mason Ryan

Drew McIntyre worked the crowd really well during their entrance but the biggest pop came for Ryan. Reks spent most of his time trying not to be in the ring with Ryan. It turned into a pretty forgetful fight with the Uso's doing most of the work. I actually missed this pin so don't know how the match ended but the Uso's and Ryan won.

Big Show vs Cody Rhodes

Rhodes on the mic before the match saying that Big Show was lucky at WM28. Big Show comes out to massive pop but looks labored on the entrance. Rhodes spends most of his time running away from Show. Rhodes takes lots of chest slaps and jumps into the crowd for water to cool his chest. The match consisted of mostly more slaps as Show looks to be carrying an injury. Show looks for the WMD several times but Rhodes counters. Show wins after a spear into a cover.

Natalya vs Alicia Foxx with ref Aksana.

Poor match that ends with Natalya attacking Aksana and Aksana pushing Natalya into a roll up for Foxx.

Alberto Del Rio vs The Great Khali

Painful match to watch due to Khali's poor mobility. Didn't work well with Del Rio at all and Del Rio wins with a cross arm bar submission.

Booker T and Percy Watson vs Christian and Mark Henry

Booker T announced the new Harlem Heat before the match and Christian talked himself and Henry up. He picked out Watson as a huge weakness against The Worlds Strongest Man. He likened Booker T and Watson to Newcastle United and  himself and Henry to Sunderland. It was cheap heat but it worked with a split crowd. Christian and Henry jobbed their way through the match which culminated in Booker T hitting Christian with the Ghetto Blaster (after one failed attempt) and then he proceeded to do the spin-a-roonie.

Kane vs Randy Orton

Orton wins with RKO after kendo sticks and multiple finishing move attempts from both fighters. Pretty poor fight for a no DQ and they moved around the arena without going into the crowd. Orton got a huge pop from the crowd after the win.

Daniel Bryan vs Sheamus

Daniel Bryan on the mic early to gather heat. Worked the crowd after they chanted 18 seconds. 50/50 split of "Yes!!!" and "Bryan Sucks" chants and Bryan ducking out of the ring. It was a pretty brutal match with neither fighter getting the upper hand until Sheamus hit the Celtic Cross and won the match. The "Yes!!" chants continued but Sheamus stayed out for photos and high fives around the whole crowd perimeter.
