Credit: Luis & PW Torch
Not a full house, but the crowd was quite hot with lots of kids in the audience.
(1) Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara defeated The Prime Time Players when Rey Mysterio 619’ed Darren Young followed by a Senton Bomb by Sin Cara. Good opener and great reactions to both heels and babyfaces.
(2) R-Truth defeated El Local via Little Jimmy. R-Truth made his entrance “singing” the What’s Up song, which got the crowd along. Quick match and crowd didn’t recognize El Local as Ricardo Rodriguez. After the match, The Miz attacked R-Truth on the ramp and cut a promo in Portuguese saying he was going to beat Kofi Kingston tonight and become IC champion.
(3) Wade Barrett defeated Justin Gabriel via The Souvenir. Good match, but the crowd didn’t really care for Justin Gabriel.
(4) Kaitlyn defeated Natalya via roll-up reversal. Good showcase for Natalya and this made for an interesting match.
(5) Randy Orton defeated Alberto Del Rio (w/Ricardo Rodriguez) via RKO after Del Rio accidentally delivered an enzuigiri to Rodriguez, who was standing on the apron. Most competitive match of the night with both Superstars drawing great reactions from the audience.
(6) Jack Swagger defeated Ted DiBiase via submission with the anklelock. Swagger had a different look, but sported the same character. Entertaining match with some “Gangnam style” shenanigans by DiBiase, Tony Chimel, and ref Charles Robinson, which amused the crowd.
(7) IC champ Kofi Kingston defeated The Miz to retain the Intercontinental Title via Trouble in Paradise. Lots of charismatic moments by The Miz, who dominated almost the entire bout. Very good match that kept the crowd split throughout with cheers for both Superstars. Great finishing sequence.
(8) Sheamus defeated World Hvt. champion Big Show via DQ; Show retained the World Title. The disqualification came when Sheamus went for the Brogue Kick and The Big Show pulled the referee into Sheamus’s way. Slow match and Big Show looked kind of sloppy. Nonetheless, both wrestlers drew great responses from the audience, mainly Sheamus, who delivered a Brogue Kick to Big Show after the match sending the fans home happy.
