WWE House Show Report 11.09.12: Cardiff, Wales
Credit: Joe Davies and prowrestling.net
I arrived around 45 minutes before the start. There were big queues at the merchandise stalls and the arena was full by the start.
1. Brodus Clay and Santino Marella defeated Primo and Epico (w/Rosa) . Brodus arrived with one of the Funkadactyls. A lot of heat against Primo and Epico. Lots of Santino chants.
2. Michael McGillicutty defeated Tensai. Lots of Albert chants, pretty standard match.
3. Eve beat Layla and AJ in a Triple Threat to retain the WWE Divas Championship. The crowd got to vote on whether AJ was entered into the match.
AJ won the title only for Vickie Guerrero to restart the match. Eve won with a roll up.
4. John Cena defeated Dolph Ziggler. Massive reaction for both, both boos and cheers. Somebody threw Cena’s shirt back at him. Both finishers were kicked out of during an impressive lengthy match that finished after interference from AJ and Vickie.
5. Antonio Cesaro beat Zack Ryder to retain the U.S. Title.
6. Team Hell No defeated Team Rhodes Scholars to retain the WWE Tag Titles. The crowd was really into this match and especially Bryan. It ended with the hug it out routine.
7. Ryback defeated C.M. Punk via DQ in a WWE Championship match. The crowd reaction for Punk changed halfway through the match. A disappointing finish with heels from other matches running in to attack Ryback. The faces made the save and Ryback hit Shellshocked on Punk.
4. Primo and Epico
5. Rhodes Scholars
