WWE Live Event Results (6/29): Cedar Rapids, Iowa

Nick Paglino

Alberto Del RioThanks to Ryan Murphy for sending in the following:

1) Sin Cara d. Cody Rhodes

A pretty good opening match, Cody did a good job drawing heat by mocking the mannerisms of Sin Cara, who was actually pretty over. (Although there was a kid in my section yelling "Go Rey Go") Sin Cara won with the senton.

2) AJ Lee d. Kaitlyn to retain the Diva's Title.

A standard but entertaining match from these two. AJ cut a promo on Kaitlyn, showing footage from Raw. A good amount of chants for Big E Langston, who played college football at nearby University of Iowa. AJ retained with a roll-up after Big E blocked Kaitlyn from getting to AJ on the outside. Langston stayed on the stage for a few extra seconds to a lot of cheers from the crowd.

3) The Great Khali d. Damien Sandow

Sandow cut a promo stating that "Nothing important happens in Iowa," but that his road to Money in the Bank would start there. Khali came out to a decent pop, and won with the Chop. Sandow drew a lot of heat with his yells of "Silence"

4) Randy Orton d. Wade Barrett

A MASSIVE pop for Orton. Orton and Barrett had a very entertaining match, reminiscent of their rivalry from a few years ago. Barrett mocked Orton's posing multiple times to good heat from the crowd. RKO out of nowhere for the 1-2-3.

5) Antonio Cesaro d. Justin Gabriel

This was the only match that a pretty hot crowd had no reaction to, even getting a "This is Boring" chant. Zeb cut a standard prematch promo, and Cesaro hit a Neutralizer for the win.

6) The Usos d. 3MB (Slater/Mahal)

A great match. The Usos were really over with the crowd, especially with the U-So chant. They teased the hot tag at least four times before delivering, with the Usos winning with the splash.

7) Alberto del Rio d. Dolph Ziggler to retain the World Heavyweight Title in a No DQ Match.

Ziggler was way over with the crowd, but they still chanted along with Ricardo's introduction. A very entertaining brawl, with canes and tables brought into the mix. Ziggler hit the Zig-Zag, but Ricardo hit Ziggler with the bucket, then dragged ADR over him for the win. Ziggler hit Ricardo with the ZigZag to send the crowd home happy.

Most Over:

1) Orton
2) Ziggler
3) Usos

Most Heat:

1) ADR, after the intro
2) Sandow
3) Rhodes

Thanks for a great site!
