WWE House Show Results (4/23): Nottingham, England; Post-Show Cena Birthday Celebration

Nick Paglino

John CenaThanks to Luke Ashmore for sending this in:

A WrestleMania highlight package ran before the event kicked off.

The Raw intro was played on the screens before Justin Roberts came out to announce the first match.

1) R-Truth def. Heath Slater

Truth came out and got the crowd pumped up with his theme and Slater was heavily boo'd. Both got pops and boos before and during the match with 'what's up' and '3MB' shouts. Truth pinned following the little Jimmy finisher.

Justin Roberts announced Team Hell No vs Ziggler & Langston with the straps on the line for later. He said that we were to decide if AJ would be allowed at ringside by tweeting using the hash tags #AJstays or #AJleaves.

2) McGillicutty def. Brad Maddox

Maddox came out for some light mic work to announce that Vicki wasn't here but fear not as he was….. Said he handpicked McGillicutty so that when he wins he will be declared the best wrestler today.

Squash match which ended with Maddox being rolled up with a schoolboy pin whilst trying to change out of his trousers into his wrestling trunks.

3) Kaitlyn def Tamina Snuka (Diva title match)

Good match on the whole and one that went back and forth but ultimately ended with Kaitlyn retaining.

4) Team Hell No def. Ziggler & Langston to retain (AJ was allowed at ringside via twitter vote)

Decent pop for Ziggler.

Daniel Bryan came out chanting No with the crowd chanting Yes!

Kane got a decent pop too.

Solid match on the whole and some real good work when Ziggles and Bryan were tieing up. Team Hell No retained with a flying goat off the top onto Ziggler.

At the end of the match Bryan demanded Kane to give him the titles as he did all the work.

Kane refused and Bryan kept charging at them like a bull lol They hugged it out though!

<Interval>

5) Ryder def. Cesaro

Really enjoyed this one personally and was suprised when Zack hit the Ruff Ryder for the win! Lots of woo woo woos!

6) Tons of Funk def. Rhodes Scholars

Plenty of heat for Sandow here. My personal highlight for this match was hearing Sandow scream like a girl and jump out of the ring rather than fave Sweet T!

Also the move where Tensai holds Rhodes upside down which feels like forever is decent!

Think this ended with Sandow taking a splash.

7) Cena def. Ryback to retain the title (tables match)

Ryback was well received and Cena arrived to a usual mixed/hostile crowd.

Feed Me More chants were huge along with the Cena Suck/Let's go Cena….

Back and forth match but Ryback probably had the better. Ryback throwing Cena into the steel steps on the outside was nice and when Ryback had Cena pressed above his head to go through the table before it was countered.

Ended Cena delivered the AA to Ryback through the table.

Oh wait what's this….. Cheesy music hits… It's only John Cena's birthday and most of the locker room came out to celebrate with a cake.

Cena brake kayfabe by calling Sweet T, Albert lol

Rhodes Scholars come out to spoil the party but they end up going face first into John's cake.

Funny 'european' style kayfabe break/cheesy ending to a house show…..
