WWE Championship Triple Threat Match:

Biggest Pop:

1. CM Punk (who appeared to be working as a babyface)

2. Chris Jericho

3. Sheamus

Notes:

1. Those in attendance were asked to vote via texting on what type of match Sheamus & Alberto Del Rio should have for the title. The two options were a last man standing match or a two out of three falls match. Last man standing match won in a landslide. Ricardo interfered a lot in the match.

2. During the main event, AJ came skipping around the ring. This distracted Daniel Bryan allowing CM Punk to hit the GTS for the win. Tons of Yes chants. CM Punk "hulked up" at one point point against Brian. No fire for Kane's entrance.

3. The crowd was hot for Chris Jericho. During the match, he held Dolph Ziggler back by his arms at ring side so that a 6 year old kid could slap him in the face. Crowd erupted.

4. The crowd showered Jinder Mahal with "What?" chants during his pre-match promo.

5. I found it laughable that WWE had a woman walk behind the wrestlers providing security as they walked from the ring and up the ramp following their matches. Is that really necessary? A little overboard.

Overall, a good show. The quality was a little low with no pyro, small set, and the matches were not as physical as you see on TV. But that is to be expected for a house show. I enjoyed it.
