Chicago Street Fight
Dean Ambrose vs. Luke Harper
They had a crazy brawl for a while in the ring. Well kinda crazy. Kendo sticks got involved. They moved outside the ring and then to the back. Then out to the back. Harper jumps in a car and drives off, Ambrose jumps in as well. Match is continuing? over? Who knows in this CHICAGO STREET FIGHT
Backstage, Seth Rollins argues with Kane while HHH tries to keep the peace.
Kiss Me Arse Match
Sheamus vs. Dolph Ziggler
JoJo is now out as ring announcer for this match. Dolph enters first. Video packages. Both guys got a lot of offense in for the match but it was pretty short, about 5 minutes. They both got some big high spots for two counts. Ziggler hit a nice superkick for 2. Sheamus with huge side slam for 2. Out of no where, Ziggler rolls up Sheamus for the pin.
After the match, Ziggler keeps pulling down his pants so that Sheamus would kiss his arse. Sheamus kept almost doing it, then pausing. This went on forever. Finally Sheamus did an uppercut instead of a kiss and Ziggler is laid out. Sheamus hits a Brogue Kick. Sheamus then RAPE KISS ASS FACES Ziggler to huge boos. Horrible.
Commercial for the upcoming slate of WWE Network programming.
WWE Tag Team Titles
Cesaro & Tyson Kidd (c) w/Natalya vs. The New Day
New Day come out first to big heat. New Day Sucks chants. Champs come out second. Big E and Kingston are in the match with Xavier on the floor. Great action back and forth. The in-ring work has been very tight tonight all around. Tyson does the Scott Hall nWo double point to Cesaro to a huge pop. Back and forth with New Day cheating throughout. Big swing by Cesaro on Kofi with a dropkick by Kidd but Big E breaks it up. The end breaks down with Xavier involved, then Kofi rolls up Cesaro with a handful of trunks for the surprise pin.
Winners and NEW Tag Team Champs: New Day
Backstage, Renee Young interviews the New Day about winning the titles.
Chicago Street Fight Part 2
Dean Ambrose vs. Luke Harper
Suddenly, an SUV pulls up, and Luke Harper comes flying out the back seat. Ambrose flies out of the car onto New Day and chases after Harper.
Brawling moves back through the backstage area into the arena and then to the ring. They fill the ring with chairs and do a few hardcore spots.
Ambrose hits dirty deeds on Harper for the pin.
Russian Chain Match
John Cena (c) vs. Rusev
Good heat for Rusev’s entrance but Lana is getting chants. USA chant before Cena comes out. He does his entrance and gets about half boos. They are tied together with a huge chain. Each corner has a red and green siren light to indicate who touches the corners. The first person to touch all four corners is the winner. Very slow and plodding match. At one point late in the match, Lana is getting huge chants and Rusev banishes her to the back.
They both got 2 or 3 lights a bunch of times before it is “broken up”. The end seemed to make no sense even within the rules of the match. Each of them hit three of the corners, but both were allowed to count so both the red and green lights were lit up. They stared down each other then rushed for the final corner, but Cena pulls in Rusev for an AA. Cena hits the final corner. So what resets the corners, is it the other person pressing a corner? or is it physicality? What a nonsense ending.
Backstage Renee Young interviews that young underdog Roman Reigns.
WWE Diva’s Title
Nikki Bella (c) w/Brie Bella vs. Naomi
Bellas come out first. Commentary has Naomi being supported by JBL and thus a heel, so the Bellas phantom face turn is complete. Back and forth, match got more time than Sheamus/Dolph. The biggest problem with these matches it that the girls are just screetching the whole match. Anyway, Nikki won with the Rack Attack.
Winner: Nikki Bella
Backstage Rusev yells at (fires?) Lana, and then shes goes into a door marked “The Authority” dun dun dunnnnnnn.
Long Roman/Show video package.
Last Man Standing
Big Show vs. Roman Reigns
Show comes out to some boos, Reigns gets mostly cheers. Match begins and slow plodding brawling commences pretty quickly. Match is slow – there are often a spot then a lengthly count to see if someone responds to a 10 count. Tables get involved both in and out of the ring. In one cool spot, Show picked up Roman and dumped him over the side and threw the table. Show is allowed to roll from the mat onto the floor to stop a 10 count as “getting to his feet” but that seems like a bit of a stretch. They set up STEEEEEEEEEEL steps next to the announce table. Near the end, Show goes to choke slam Roman on the announce table. Reigns gets out of it, then does a running spear through the barricade.
With Show out, Roman then sets up Show standing on the table, then runs from the floor, up the steel steps across the announce table and spears Show through the Spanish Announce Table. Show is out cold. Reigns then picks up the other announce table from the right side and tips it completely over and onto Show, pinning him down for the 10 count. Reigns counts along with the ref and the crowd for the win.
After the match Roman celebrates
Randy Orton confronts Kane and they chat about stuff backstage.
Tough Enough promo.
Bo Dallas comes out to a nice reaction. He gets kinda mean. Finally Ryback comes out to a big pop. Dallas actually gets a bit of offense in, gets back on the mic, but Ryback picks him up and Shell Shocks him.
Backstage Lana approaches Rusev and tells him she got the Authority to book an “I Quit” match for the next PPV against Cena.
WWE World Heavyweight Title
RKO is Banned
Kane is “Guardian of the Gate
Seth Rollins (c) vs. Randy Orton
Randy comes out first. Seth comes out second without J&J security. They later were at ringside so maybe I missed them. Randy got a nice ovation. Match starts and builds with both men getting offense, mostly Orton. They teased some tension but whenever Rollins wanted Kane to open the door to the cage, Kane complied. When Randy wanted it, Kane did not. So Rollins went to attack Orton as he argued with Kane, and Rollins kicked the door into Kane knocking him back. This got Kane all mad. He took off his jacket and went into the ring. J&J Security followed and tried to calm Kane down. Finish saw Kane double chokeslam J&J. Randy hit RKO on Kane. Rollins then hit an RKO on Randy!
Rollins then scurried towards the door and escaped the cage and retain the title.
After the match, Lawler and JBL argue over whether the RKO was illegal or just for Randy Orton to use.
I think this was not a strong PPV.
