What's up friends. This is my first blog so bear with me. I usually just post on the FB comments. Great job with the site by the way fella's. So this was my first ppv that i attended live!! It was pretty damn Awesome!!! I loved the way the stage was set up and as always indoor live pyros are just sweet!! Here are my feelings from the show. BTW its always nice to see it live because you don't have to hear Micheal Cole commentating through the whole thing. He got one of the largest boo's of the night when they announce the commentators.
Pre-show match: Santino vs Cesaro: Santino got a huge pop from the crowd!! He definitely has became a crowd fav. For some reason, i knew he was going to lose that match though, they have just been pushing Cesaro a lot recently. Cesaro's promo was lame and he is pretty lame and needs to work on his wrestling skills, he couldn't even perform basic wrestling moves. The crowd did not like to see Santino lose, esp with all the pre-event activity over the weekend that he was involved with. I give this match a D.
Ziggler vs Jericho: We were all wondering who was going to kick it off. This was a great match. Those two put it all on the line. Jericho got a huge pop, but for a bit there, a good chunk of the crowd was chanting "let's go Ziggler!". When Vicki came out, her screech actually hurt my daughters ears and made her cry, lol!!! The Y2J chants were loud and the crowd was very pleased to see him win. I enjoyed this match a lot. Could of been a show stealer!! I give this match a A. excellent match. My favorite of the night.
Kane vs Daniel Bryan: We made a goat face sign just for this match. It was poorly drawn but pretty funny. Say what you want, but that guy gets the crowd going no matter what he is doing. Kane's entrance is always awesome. The indoor pyro's kick ass. This was actually a pretty good match. Its funny with all the "yes" chants, and I love the way DB plays off the crowd, like it pisses him off. Didn't know who was going to win, but glad DB won. Raw should be funny tonight and goat-face better watch out for the wrath of the Red Monster. I hope this rivalry plays out a little longer. I give this match a B+.
Miz vs Mysterio: The crowd loves Mysterio, he got a huge pop when he came out. This was a good match, but you knew that Miz was going to win because he just got the belt a few weeks back. Anyone else notice that they make Rey lose a lot of matches when a belt is on the line. Miz actually got a pop from the fans when he was starting to win the match, I was surprised he didnt get booed as much as normal. The fans with the good seats, gave Miz a good pop when he was in front of them, he played off the fans well. Miz looked better than normal. Wonder what they are gonna do with Rey now. I gave this match a B.
Shemus vs Del Rio: Del Rio actually got a good pop. I think being in L.A. and having a few more latino fans than normal got him some extra cheers, but he still got his fair share of boo's. The crowd blew up when Shemus came out. He is definitely a favorite. This was actually a good match. It was a pretty funny when everyone starts counting the chest punches. Was funny to see Berto crying in the ring so long after he lost. I guess this one is gonna get dragged out a little longer with the leg on the rope controversy. I was actually expecting Booker T to come out and have the match continue. I liked how Shemus tried to knock Berto's leg off the rope while the ref was counting as well. I would give this one a B+. It was better than I expected.
Primetime Players vs Kofi/R-Truth. The primetime players are a joke. They got booed and heckled, and the truth is, they are just lame. Kofi got a huge pop. That boy can jump. Not much to say about this match. I went and took a piss, cause it got kind of boring. Glad they didnt switch belts though, the Playa's are just lame!!! I give this one a D.
Triple threat match: Cena vs Big Show vs Punk. If CM Punk is a heel, then he is the most popular heel ever. The WWE Universe loves Punk. He got a huge pop when he came out and an even bigger one when he won. Its weird that everyone there seems to be dressed in Cena gear, but that dude gets the loudest boo's of everyone. I just think the crowd like to chant "lets go Cena/Cena sucks". I swear it seemed like Cena spent the whole match on the floor outside the ring. Did anyone else notice that Big Show pretty much dominated the whole match but still lost. I think Punk will keep his belt til Royal Rumble, lose it to the Rock, Rock and Cena rematch at Wrestlemania and Cena gets his belt back. Ugh, I know, but it just seems the way its gonna go. This match was pretty lame. AJ is hot in person. Would of liked her to skip around me. lol. I give this one a C+ and that's only because it was funny watch Big Show thrashing on these guys. I'm glad Punk won though. Curious to see what happens on Raw tonight with the double submission controversy. I was really glad this match was not the main event by the way.
The Main Event. Brock vs Triple H. These two dudes are frickin gigantic. Brock got a pretty decent pop. I like Brock a lot, so i was cheering for him, but HHH is a legend so it was cool to see him live. It was an ok match. It was kinda obvious that Brock was going to win though. i didnt think they would have him lose two ppv matches. I didnt like that he kept using the arm bar. The crowd was chanting "do something different" which was kind of funny. I thought it was weird that HHH started to cry, funny when the crowd was chanting "you tapped out". I would of like to see the sledge hammer get put in this match, but oh well. I gave this one a B, just because it kept me entertained.
All in all, I had a blast, brought my 5 year old daughter and she enjoyed herself. I would of like to have gone to Axxcess but it sold out. That looks pretty cool, esp since you get to meet some of the wrestlers. Well i hope this wasnt boring, just wanted to give you a fan's take from being there live. Till next time!!!
