WWE House Show Results (3/1): Toronto, Ontario

Nick Paglino

CM PunkThanks to WZ reader "Z" for sending in the following:

Brodus and Albert beat Drew and Heath of 3mb with Jinder at ringside. Won with double headbutt and splashes.

Justin Gabriel beat JTG with the 450 splash and then was attacked and powerbombed by the shield. Shield then cut a promo doing their usual schtick saying how they're going to solve the John Cena riddle and how they will be known as the greatest team ever.

Layla beat Tamina/w Vickie Guerrero with a kick to the head.

WWE NXT star Bray Wyatt beat Alex Riley.

Antonio Cesaro beat Miz in a NO Dq united states title match with his finish move. Couple great kendo stick moments and chair moments. Funny moment came when Miz went to get a table under the ring and found that one of the legs was broken.. so he went to the other side to get the 1 other table they stuck under the ring, but it had a broken leg too! After trying to get the first table the Miz looked a little annoyed, but when the second table didn't work either, he brought it into the ring anyways and set it up lop sided. Match ended before the table was used, but they did tease a few spots with it.  After the match Cesaro came back to the ring and tried to put Miz through the table, but was countered and speared through it himself.

Zack Ryder beat McGillicutty with the rough ryder. Some people beside me had a "zack ryder is still a jobber" sign which Zack looked at with a "whatever bro" smirk. After the match he said "whos a jobber now" at them.

CM Punk cut a promo mocking our hockey team and saying how Chicago's hockey team is undefeated right now, and then his basic speel about how he doesnt suck and how hes the best in world. He walked around the ring tearing up CM Punk signs while Kofi did his entrance.

CM Punk beat Kofi Kingston with the GTS. After the match the guy beside me in the front row was yelling at justin roberts to give him cm punks shirt, which was left on the apron by the corner turnbuckle. I wish it was me yelling, because roberts walked over and gave it to him!

Main Event saw Cena and Ryback beat the Shield in a 2 on 3 handicap tag match via DQ when Reigns hit Ryback with a chair mid shell shocked. 99% of the match was the shield beating down cena. cena didnt really do much at all which seemed strange considering the next ppv coming up, AND how good his match on RAW was with Punk last week.. After the match Ryback fist pounded most of the fans at ringside and cena took off relatively quickly leaving a lot of kids screaming his name to come back, which didnt happen.

Best match was Punk vs Kofi with the US title match being a VERY close second.

On a side note it was a shame to have ONLY the US title being present during the house show.

Biggest Pops:

Punk
Cena
Ryback

Biggest Heat:

Donald Trump portion of the HOF vignette
Shield for powerbombing Gabriel. Crowd was really into Gabriel?

All the kids who appeared out of nowhere to crowd the ringside area before and after matches to desperately touch wrestlers.
