WWE House Show Results (5/4): Reading, PA

Nick Paglino

Randy OrtonThanks to WZ reader Justin Reed for the following results:

The Usos vs. Prime Time Players

Very entertaining match,  The Usos got a big pop (not sure why they aren't on TV more).  The Primetime Players got lots of heat.  They were constantly teasing the crowd.  The Usos won by pinfall.  Gotta ask what in the world is pointing out of Titus O'Neill's right thigh?  Looks like a pencil point pushing through his skin.

Ted Dibiase vs. Corey Graves

Graves came out with a mic putting down the crowd, but they weren't very interested because most didn't know who he was.  Very slow match and started out very excited to see someone from NXT. By the end I wasn't very impressed with Graves.  Dibiase won by pinfall.

Natalya vs. Alicia Fox

Decent match for Divas. Natalya won by submission with the sharpshooter.

Justin Gabriel vs. Big E Langston (supposed to be a special attraction match but not sure why)

Justin Gabriel put on a great show,  never got to see him due the 450 but did see a lot of high flying action. Big E won by pinfall. The crowd started a great chant  of "E has D Cups".  Big E seemed to absolutely hate it!

Dolph Ziggler with AJ and Big E vs. Alberto Del Rio and Ricardo Rodriguez. for the World Heavyweight Championship
Ziggler was out first with a lot of boos despite a lot of Ziggler shirts in the crowd.  AJ was immediately sent to the back because of a Twitter/Text pole asking the crowd to vote if she should stay or be sent to the back.  Unfortunately she was sent to the back.  Big E got to stay.  Very entertaining match and was just as good as any match we've already seen from Ziggler and Del Rio.  Ricardo and Big E were very involved and Ricardo was eventually thrown into the ring steps where he stayed most of  the match.  Alberto eventually locked in his submission but Big E interfered causing Alberto to win by disqualification.  Alberto and Ricardo got the last laugh by clearing Ziggler and Big E out of the ring with Alberto standing tall in the end.  Great match and should have been the main event.

Intermission

Tons of Funk with Funkadactyls vs Damien Sandow and Cody Rhodes with the Bella Twins

This was originally announced as an 8 man tag but none of the women were dressed to fight.  This match was very entertaining with lots of laughs.  Sandow and Rhodes bickered back and forth not wanting to tag in to fight either of TOF.  At one point Rhodes jumped from the ring apron and into the crowd just so he wouldn't get tagged into the match.  Sandow even screamed like a girl at one point.   TOF used many tandem moves and near the end of the match the Bella Twins jumped in ring to distract the ref but that caused the Funkadactyls to jump in and clear them out.  That got the ball rolling for TOF and they won the match.  They pulled some little kids into the ring afterwards to dance.

Wade Barret vs The Great Khali for the Intercontinental Championship

I couldn't even believe I was witnessing this.  None of the crowd was interested in either of the men. Most of the crowd actually booed Khali for his performance.  What I was hoping would have been a squash match lasted almost 10 minutes and eventually finished with Barrett winning by pinfall.

Randy Orton vs The Big Show was the main event

Both wrestlers got a huge pop but Show obviously got more heat.  Show played the bad guy perfectly just walking and seemed very uninterested in even participating.  Even to the point where he left the ring then returned about 4 times.  Both men put on a great show.  They fought in the ring, outside the ring, and even partially up the ramp. Both men used their finishers but Orton eventually got the win with the RKO.
