I attended the WWE Raw house show last night at Freedom Hall in Johnson City, TN. Here are the results.
1. Melina and Eve Torres defeated Maryse and Alicia Fox.
Pretty okay opening match. Divas are always great to see live.
2. Sheamus squashed Primo like a little grape in about three minutes.
I called it as soon as I heard Primo’s music.
3. Santino defeated Chris Masters.
Just your basic comic relief match. Pretty fun.
4. Carlito defeated Alex Riley.
The crowd was dead for this one. Most people probably went to the concession stands.
5. Mark Henry defeated Jack Swagger.
Henry was decently over with the crowd. Swagger still looks like a big slobbering dope to me.
6. U.S. champion The Miz defeated Evan Bourne.
Evan Bourne is awesome live…even if he loses.
7. Triple H and Kofi Kingston defeated Cody Rhodes and Ted Dibiase Jr.
This was probably the best match of the night. Lots of crowd interaction, especially from HHH, who seemed genuinely happy to be in Johnson City. The match ended when HHH and Kofi both hit their finishers at the same time for a double pin.
8. WWE champion John Cena defeated Randy Orton.
The belt was on the line ‘by order of Jesse Ventura’. Pretty good match with lots of teased finishes towards the end. Cena won with the FU after Orton missed a head kick…and yes, I still call it the FU. TV-PG my ass…
