I attended the wwe house show in London this Saturday and it was an amazing experience.
Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch vs. The Highlanders
Very exciting match with numerous head butts happening through the match from The Highlanders. What surprised me though is that Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch actually performed well as a tag team. Highlanders won with there botched finishing move.
Winners: The Highlanders
Snitsky vs. Rob Conway
Snitsky and Conway were actually able to deliver an entertaining match.
With numerous poses and finishing moves attempts Snitsky eventually won with The Big Boot
Shelton Benjamin vs. Charlie Hass
The Haas pop exists. When his music hit the crowd was dead. Until his name was announced he had no pop. Thinking his opponent was Viscera the crowd was not to excited, Then Shelton Benjamin music hits which receives one of the largest pops of the night. The match was all about athleticism between the two. The highlights of the match came near the end when Shelton hits a midair flipping arm drag which catapults Haas to the outside. Benjamin then hits a back drop into the barricade to Haas.
After they got back into the ring with numerous roll ups Shelton got the 3 count with the rollup.
Winner: Shelton Benjamin
Matt Striker is announced and comes out. He starts by saying how much he likes hockey and named various NHL stars who were born in Canada. Then he said a couple years ago he got a offer from the London Knights to tryout for the team but said he would rather play for Peterborough. This got a good heel reaction. ( I’m from Kitchener so I was having a good time through this segment). Hacksaw Jim Duggan comes out to many hoooooooooooooooooooooo chants. He carried an American Flag with him which got some boo’s. Then he pulled out a Canadian Flag which got a good reaction. After calling Trish Stratus a Canadian hooooooo. Hacksaw Jim Duggan beat on Matt Striker with a piece of wood.
Carlito and Trish Stratus vs. wwe IC champion Johnny Nitro and Melina
The match was nothing spectacular with Trish winning with Stratusfaction on Melina.
Winners: Carlito and Trish Stratus
After the match Mickie James came out and Trish Chick kicked her.
Randy Orton vs. Harry Smith
Orton got a huge reaction. Harry Smith got a Haas pop. Randy Orton got some mic. time and explained to the crowd who Harry Smith is. WORLDS WORST MATCH EVER happens. Nothing but headlocks and shoulder knockdowns. Orton hits the RKO for the three count after reversing the Powerslam.
Winner: Randy Orton
Spirit Squad vs. DX
Spirit squad comes out and gives a cheer. Then dx music plays with Triple H coming by himself. Green spotlights were everywhere. He gets on the mic and says for one night only there’s a new dx member since Shawn Micheals couldn’t be here.
There’s a big whoo then dx music plays to Ric Flair coming out. Triple H gets on the mic. and says he has a cheer give me a G give me a A give me a Y whats that spell Gay. Then Triple H says to the spirit squad that’s you guys. The Finish comes when Ric Flair and Triple H finish off two spirit Squad members with there finishing moves.
Winners: Ric Flair and Triple H.
Edge vs. Cena street fight (non title)
Cena is in a different league from anyone /* when it comes to the biggest pop category.
As a Canadian though Edge was not far behind. This was by far an entertaining match.
Edge and Cena duke it out in the ring then go straight to the entrance ramp. They started to wrestle 10 ft away from me (Holy Crap) there huge. They get back into the ring where Cena accidentally clothesline the ref then makes Edge tap out to the STF-U but as I said Ref was out. Second Ref comes out but he gets knocked out. Cena hits the FU on Edge and the 1st ref was able to make the 3 count.
Winner: John Cena
Excellent show with the exception of The Randy Orton Harry Smith match
I’d definitely see a house show if there’s one in your area.
