1. Brodus Clay and Tensai beat Rhodes Scholars. A lot of warming the crowd up etc. Basic match with the faces going over.

2. Kaitlin beat A.J. Lee to retain the WWE Divas Title. A.J. had a good reaction and played run around at first. It was a decent diva match for sure.

3. Curtis Axel defeated R-Truth. Truth did the what’s up intro and act throughout. Paul Heyman did a pre-taped promo on screen and said that he wasn’t going to be there tonight. A good match. R-Truth was way over.

4. Miz defeated Antonio Cesaro in a best of three falls match as voted on by the fans via the App. Cesaro won fall one. Miz won fall two by Skull Crushing Finale. Miz won fall three by finally locking in the Figure Four to a big crowd pleaser.

5. Chris Jericho, Kane, and Daniel Bryan defeated The Shield by DQ. This was definitely my favorite match of the night. The crowd hated The Shield and loved Kane, Jericho, and Bryan. A usual six-man tag with Bryan Hulking up and The Shield bringing in the chair. The faces hit their finishers and that was that.


6. Wade Barrett defeated Sheamus by count out to retain the Intercontinental Title. The finish came after a long, decent match. Sheamus delivered the Brogue Kick after match was over.

Brad Maddox acted like Vickie Guerrero with the “excuse me” stuff. He came out and challenged anyone in the locker room.

7. Hornswoggle defeated Brad Maddox. A quick match.

8. Alberto Del Rio and Ricardo Rodriquez defeated Big E Langston and Dolph Ziggler. A good match with lots of showboating at first with Del Rio holding Ziggler’s shirt and Big E running at it like a bull. Yes, really. The crowd yelled Ole after each time. Ricardo had a nice bump or two leaping off the top rope and over the ropes to the outside onto Big E.

9. John Cena defeated Ryback in a tables match to retain the WWE Title. The usual back and forth match. There was action outside the ring with the stairs and then Cena countering Ryback to throw him through the table in the corner.

Notes: A decent turnout in Bloomington. Probably 5-6,000 people tops. A good warm up for the pay-per-view tomorrow night.
