Zack Ryder beat Jack Swagger, no, really that happened! Zeb was money on the mike before and after the match, lots of fun, went a long time for an opener.
Alicia Fox beat Tamina with the axe kick. This one started off, ahem, a bit clumsy to be kind but they found their groove and settled into a good match.
RVD vs. Dean Ambrose for the U.S. title. Will RVD ever age? The guy is amazing. Very good match with an inventive finish. RVD hit a flying cross body but his momentum carried him through to where he was pinned by Ambrose.
Next up was an interview with Rey Mysterio. Says he's at about 85 percent and can't wait to get back. Cue the music because here comes the Shield. Reigns and Rollins get ready to pounce but it's Mark Henry and the Big Show to the rescue and we have our four entrants in our next match for the tag titles.
Big Show and Mark Henry vs. The Shield. This was the comedy match of the night with the obvious size difference between the teams providing some levity. Mark Henry was your Ricky Morton for the evening and after the hot tag to Big Show Dean Ambrose interfered and cracked Big Show over the head with the U.S. title. RVD came back out to even the sides.
Justin Gabriel and The Usos vs. The Wyatt Clan, complete with cheesy lantern and rocking chair. Bray sat in the chair until Justin Gabriel had been beaten to a pulp and then sprung out of his chair to join in the fun. Something different, he was wearing a leather butcher's apron. Mayhem ensues, Bray is left alone in the ring with Gabriel and that was the end of that. The Wyatts are positively frightening.
Faaannn-dannnggg-oooooo vs. The Miz, with Summer Rae along of course. The interactive poll of the night was did the crowd want to see a match or a dance-off? They said dance-off won (cough-BS-cough) and Fandango went first. Miz followed but two seconds into his dance Fandango attacked and we're gonna get the match anyway. Very good match, Fandango worked on Miz's left arm and Miz concentrated his attack on Fandango's legs. Miz wins with the figure four. Really good work by both guys and Summer Rae is doing quite well in her role.
The video board replayed the Daniel Bryan-Randy Orton-McMahon saga from Raw leading into our main event of the evening.
Daniel Bryan vs. Randy Orton for the WWE title. Another excellent match, Daniel Bryan seems to be in a lot of those, huh? Bryan took a beating, got in a few hope spots and rallied to put Orton in the yes lock but here comes the Shield to save Orton. Orton takes the first train out of Dodge and Henry and RVD come out to rescue Bryan. Reigns eats a world's strongest slam and RVD hits Ambrose with a frog splash.
An entertaining night, probably about 4,500 people there.
