WWE House Show Results (4/20): Paris, France

Nick Paglino

WWE RawThanks to Anthony Samiez for sending this in:

The arena was pretty full with a good ambiance but too much cheering for the faces. Thank god, the hardcore fans woke up at the middle of the show (after a few beers during the intermission) and were cheering for the miz and jericho.

As usual for a house show, the wrestlers took it easy and some of them seemed tired.

Here are the results:

1. R-Truth and Kofi Kingston def. Epico and Primo (with Rosa Mendes)

John Laurinaitis cuts a promo on screen and make it a non-title match.

2. David Otunga def. Alex Riley

Riley was surprisingly well cheered. Otunga spent time posing before the match ala Chris Master (a lot of heat from the crowd). Otunga dominated the match.

3. Dolph Ziggler def. Zack Ryder

A good match. A big pop for ryder and heat for ziggler. Ziggler was asking the crowd if they wanted his t-shirt. The crowd was excited. He screwed them.

4. Lord Tensai def. Tyson Kidd

It was not a squash match but the reaction was no different as on tv. Tensai did not a lot of reaction except Albert chants from the hardcore fans.

Tyson Kidd was booed when he showed up which was confusing. He then got cheered when the crowd found out his opponent.

5. Santino Marella def. Jack Swagger

Jack Swagger wins with the help of ziggler but a second referee shows up and restart the match. Marella wins (big pop).

6. Bella Twins def. Beth phoenix and Eve Torres

Good match (better than a 1 minute match on tv)

7. John Cena def. The Miz

The Miz comes heat and gets a lot of heat at first sight. He then cuts a promo in french saying how he hates France, french wine, french cheese,….Then he says he has to speak English very slowly to be sure we understand him.
Cena comes in and gets a huge pop! But then during the match, a lot of Cena sucks.

The miz dominated the match. But Cena woke up and performed his 5 moves and won.

8. CM Punk def. Chris Jericho

I was disappointed by the crowd as Jericho did not get much reaction during his entrance. CM punk got a huge pop.

It was the best match of the night. A non-disqualification match with kendo stick, chairs, a beer for Punk… I liked that both punk and jericho took the mic during the match to insult each other.

Notes:
-A lot of green Cena T-shirts on adults and kids.
-Some Yes chants during the match!
-Jericho got heat but was cheered several times especially after nice moves (the hardcore fans were there)
-A lot of programs and cena's merchandise sold
-Cena seemed tired and was slow. The Miz carried the match
