Thank you to Mark Abraham for sending this in:
Once again, WWE Network has been covered over on the ring apron following WWE’s failure to launch the network and later, fan backlash.
Sheamus defeated The Miz (w/ Damien Mizdow) by pinfall after a Brogue Kick. Great kickoff to the show, crowd got behind the comedic brilliance of Mizdow at ringside and Sheamus always gets a great reaction in Cardiff.
Los Matadores and El Torito defeated Slater Gator and Hornswoggle. This was the interactive fans choice match. The crowd tweeted in favour of a six-man tag match over a six-man danceoff. Solid contest from start to finish but you have to think Titus O’Neill is wasted in that spot.
Mark Henry defeated Xavier Woods by pinfall after the World’s Strongest Slam. Squash match that saw Henry induct Woods into the Hall of Pain after Woods tried to get answers from Henry for his heel turn.
AJ Lee defeated Nikki Bella and Paige (w/ Brie Bella). This was scheduled as a Divas tag match but Nikki invoked the perks of her win at Hell in a Cell and forced Brie to be in her corner. Brie got a Yes! chant going but ended up being shoved down by her twin and smacked around after the match.
US Title match: Big Show defeated Rusev (w/ Lana) by DQ after Rusev attacked Show with a steel chair. Solid big man match, great stage for a Rusev to show what he can do. Mark Henry came down after Rusev worked him over with the steel chair and applied the Accolade. After a brief scuffle with Big Show, the Worlds Largest Athlete dropped the Worlds Strongest Man with a KO Punch.
Jack Swagger (w/ Zeb Colter) defeated Damien Mizdow via submission with the Patriot Lock. Decent match, lots of We the People moments for the live audience.
Kofi Kingston and Big E defeated Luke Harper and Eric Rowan by pinfall. Fun, physical tag team encounter. Harper was a stand-out performer and Kofi was far from afraid to throw himself around the ring.
Dean Ambrose defeated Seth Rollins by pinfall in a Street Fight. Amazing, TV quality affair from two of WWE’s hottest properties. Ambrose had the crowd eating out of the Palm of his hand, winning after dropped a huge elbow drop on Rollins and driving him through a table.
WWE Live will return to Cardiff on April 12th 2015.
