The Prime Time Players defeated Justin Gabriel and Ted DiBiase. Hey, a Ted DiBiase sighting! DiBiase’s hair is longer than last I remember. Ted played the face in peril. A hot tag to Gabriel led to a few springboard moves, until he was put down by the Clash of the Titus for the 1-2-3. Short match.
WWE Main Event:
– The Miz defeated Cody Rhodes. Wade Barrett is in on commentary. We’ve got a very lively, responsive crowd so far tonight. Very back and forth match, with one guy really not getting a big advantage over the other. Action spilled outside the ring for a moment, and Cody ran Miz’s shoulder into the post for a close nine count. Cody worked Miz’s shoulder for a few minutes. Miz made the comeback with trademark offense. Cody hit the Beautiful Disaster for a great near fall, and not long after, Miz slapped on the Figure Four for the tap out. A good, long, match between these two.
– Damien Sandow defeated Sin Cara. Sandow cut a Sandow promo pre-match. Sin Cara got off to a high-flying start. Sandow managed to ground Sin Cara with some aggressive offense. I tried to get a Mistico chant going…wishful thinking, I guess. Sin Cara made a small comeback, and attempted the Swanton but missed. Sandow hit his new finisher, The Silencer, for the win. No botches.
– The Uso’s beat Tons of Funk. The Uso’s entrance is pretty cool live. A big Us-O! chant went up early. Both teams seemed to be playing the mutual respect angle, I guess since they’re both babyfaces. Lots of dancing and taunting to start. The Uso’s won a quick match out of nowhere with a double superkick into a top rope splash. The Uso’s got a great response.
