YouTube Pre-Show: #1 Contender's Divas Battle Royal
Sorry guys, I wasn't able to see this due to a scheduling conflict.
WINNER (and new #1 contender): Naomi
Didn't see that one coming. Wow. My guess is that Brodus Clay repackaging is definitely coming soon.
The pay-per-view starts off with Lilian Garcia asking for a moment of silence for the children that died at the school shooting.
#1 Contender's Tables Match: Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara vs. Team Rhodes Scholars
Cody's mustache has its chant going already. The masks try running a table through them but that doesn't work. That never really seems to work. Rhodes Scholars are trying to set up some kind of a spot with Sin Cara on the steps but they seem to be having issues getting the top part off. This is awkward. The masks get put on top of tables outside the ring and Cody gets ready to launch himself over the top rope, but nope, Mysterio stops that action. Sin Cara corkscrews over the rope and hits Sandow, then hits the barricade. Sin Cara bounces on the ropes to springboard and Cody Rhodes simply pushes him off, so he lands on the outside table and Rhodes Scholars win the match.
WINNERS: Team Rhodes Scholars
Decent for an opener. Nothing fantastic. Interesting, simplistic ending, but it totally works.
Shield promo. The guy who did the nWo static must have filmed this.
United States Championship: Antonio Cesaro (c) vs. R-Truth
Time for the USA chant. Cesaro's just manhandling Truth. That's as it should be, really. Truth has no shot. Corkscrew elbow from Truth. Totally not going to end the match. Truth hits the Axe Kick though. Antonio Cesaro kicks out. Neutralizer. There goes the match.
WINNER: Antonio Cesaro via pinfall.
Match quality isn't great, but that was kind of expected.
Matt Striker goes into the ring to interview Cesaro. He asks him what he thinks of the negative reaction he's getting. Cesaro says he's a true international superstar and the greatest US champ in history. By booing him, everyone is booing America itself.
Time to plug the Tribute to the Troops show.
Josh Mathews interviews Dolph Ziggler backstage. He points out the inadequacies of his match and how it isn't fair. Totally agree, Dolph. Fuck Cena up later. He says he's going to end Cena's career - the crowd cheers [haha].
Miz is coming out. His set is, well, set up.
Out of all the people to be on the talk show segment, it's the 3 Man Band. Ouch. Ouch a thousand times. Hoping for a skull crushing finale. What in the world is going on? They're making fun of the Spanish announcers? Huh? Ricardo Rodriguez comes out to save the day! Whaaaat? Alberto Del Rio comes out too?! Face turn??? Del Rio starts taking out 3MB. Time for Miz to go after 3MB too. 3MB challenges Miz and Del Rio to a six man tag match. "We want Ryder" chant starts.
Am I watching Raw?
Daniel Bryan says Ryback isn't as easy to talk to as Kane. He hates how Ryback keeps repeating himself with the "feed me more" chant. If he's hungry, they'll feed him.
Striker talks to Wade Barrett. He belittles the Wildcat nickname.
Intercontinental Championship: Kofi Kingston (c) vs. Wade Barrett
"Let's go Barrett" chant. Wade's kicking some ass. Mostly Wade in charge. Kofi starts fighting back with the Boom Drop and such. Time to miss the Trouble in Paradise. Yup. Kofi does a crossbody and Wade reverses it with a 2.5 count. Kofi hits Trouble in Paradise and wins.
WINNER: Kofi Kingston via pinfall.
Not bad. Good way to showcase Barrett without having him win.
CM Punk is introduced sitting in a box on his own in the crowd. He's sporting a new shirt, "knees 2 faces". Nice. He starts running down the audience, calling them animals. He calls Ryback dumb for injuring him and taking him out of the championship match.
Six Man Tag Team TLC Match: Ryback and Team Hell No vs. The Shield
Well, now we know that the ladder match is probably the main event. No real reaction for Ryback when he comes out. Hm. Shield's entrance is from the crowd. Goldberg chant. Pretty even match, if not skewed anti-Shield so far. Ryback does a double vertical suplex on the ladder. That doesn't happen too much, so that was nice. Shield throws Ryback through the Spanish announcers table as they've done a bunch of times before. Ambrose body slams Bryan on a chair, looks like it could have hurt (not in an injury sense though). Rollins and Ambrose give a superplex to Daniel Bryan from the top rope while standing on a table. Nice. Two-count. Kane does his clothesline from that same table that was set up on the top rope onto Ambrose. Kane chokeslams Ambrose onto a chair and breaks it. Roman Reigns breaks up the pinfall. Reigns tackles Kane through the barricade and they start just putting stuff on him like chairs and such. In the ring, Bryan puts Ambrose in the No Lock, then Rollins, then Reigns after they keep interrupting. Ambrose breaks it up. Rollins hits his finisher on Bryan and the chair (DB's head hitting the chair). Ryback breaks up the pin. Ryback comes back and starts cleaning house. Meat Hook on Ambrose. Fans are starting to chant with Ryback now. Ryback puts Ambrose up for Shell Shocked and hits it. The other two Shield members break it up. Ryback fights the Shield around the stage area. Rollins casually pushes over a ladder onto Ryback, lol. Out come the chair attacks while he's down. They place Ryback on a table and Rollins starts climbing a HUGE ladder. Keep in mind, they're on the concrete. Ryback gets off the table and Rollins is stuck, so he keeps climbing and starts moving to another ladder unsuccessfully. Ryback tosses him backward into another table. OUCH. Meanwhile, Reigns and Ambrose are ganging up on Bryan in the ring. Reigns power bombs Bryan through the table from the top rope and they win the match.
WINNERS: The Shield via pinfall.
Good match! Very entertaining.
They keep rewinding the Rollins fall. He really smacks his head on one of the tables that doesn't break. Brutal.
Divas Championship: Eve Torres (c) vs. Naomi
Naomi's pulling off some odd moves. Random splits and stuff now too. Clearly she isn't going to win the match but it looks like they're going to start building her up if they gave her this title shot. Naomi misses a crossbody. Eve hits her finisher and wins.
WINNER: Eve Torres via pinfall.
Impressive for Naomi's first real match outside of NXT.
World Heavyweight Championship [Chairs Match]: Big Show (c) vs. Sheamus
No chairs have really come into play. Sheamus rather easily picks up Big Show and bodyslams him. Impressive. Slow match. Zzz. Big Show hits a chokeslam on Sheamus but he kicks out. Show tosses 4 chairs into the ring. Commentators point out that he doesn't need multiple chairs. Show sets up for a Vader Bomb, hits one on Sheamus who has a chair on his gut at the time. Sheamus kicks out. Sheamus hits White Noise on Big Show on top of two chairs but Show kicks out of that. Good. Sheamus misses a Brogue Kick and Big Show nails him with a WMD. Sheamus kicks out. Big Show pulls out an extra big chair that looks heavy as shit. He smacks Sheamus in the back with it and pins him for the win.
WINNER: Big Show via pinfall.
Not a big fan of it overall. Chairs matches are awkward and this was slow. I'm glad Big Show won, though.
3 Man Band vs. The Miz, Alberto Del Rio, & Brooklyn Brawler
Brooklyn Brawler? What? HAHAHA. He looks so odd. This match is odd as well. Del Rio suicide dives, looks good. Brawler wins the match with a Boston Crab on Jinder Mahal.
WINNERS: The Miz, Alberto Del Rio, and Brooklyn Brawler via submission.
Money in the Bank Ladder Match: Dolph Ziggler vs. John Cena
"Let's go Cena / Cena sucks" chants, of course. "You can't wrestle" now. They've used chairs, ladders, and the steps and now a table is coming into play. And you want to tell me that this "ladder match" is different from a TLC match? Enough with this pay-per-view, do King of the Ring instead! Ziggler locks a sleeper hold on Cena. Cena climbs the ladder. They both fall into a table. Cena picks Ziggler AND the ladder up for an Attitude Adjustment but Ziggler escapes. Dolph's got a gash on his leg, Cena's eye is bleeding still. Weird looking hurricanrana from Cena on Ziggler which tosses him into a table set up on the turnbuckle. Ziggler misses the superkick and Cena hits the AA. Out comes Vickie Guerrero with a chair, ready to hit Cena. AJ must come out soon. Yup, there she is. AJ takes her down. AJ hits the Five Knuckle Shuffle. Cena starts setting up the ladder while AJ skips around. AJ pushes Cena off from the ladder! Dolph climbs and takes the briefcase down.
WINNER: Dolph Ziggler
Good entertaining match.
