WWE Live Results Cardiff 10th November 2013
I’m writing this just after getting home from the show. Felt we saw a good show tonight, before the show Justin Roberts comes out to the ring and states that tonight there will be a fans choice match after intermission of the show and it will be fandango vs Santino and fans could choose between a dance off or normal match. Justin then started the show and gave us our first match
The Real Americans vs Los Matadores
The real Americans come out to the ring and are accompanied by Zeb Colter. Lots of cheers for Zeb and Zeb was pure gold on the mic, the started off by saying ‘im so happy to be back in Scotland’ and then once he got the country right stating that the women of Wales were ‘too big’. Los Matadores come out and the match begins. This was a great opening match, a nice spot where Los Matadores use the don’t tread on me flags against swagger and Cesaro and make them run like bulls to get the flags back. Cesaro got the big swing in and rotated 15 times with the crowd counting along. Los Matadores win the match with double team Samoan drop
Winner – Los Matadores
Zack Ryder vs Wade Barrett
Wade Barrett comes out and cuts a promo on how the welsh haven’t qualified for the World Cup in 2014 and how they should all support England, Barrett takes off his shirt and has an England football team too underneath, which the crowd boo heavily (although I cheered as I’m English!!!) short match between Wade and Zack, Barrett wins the match by hitting the bull hammer elbow for the 1-2-3.
Winner – Wade Barrett
Askana vs Natayla
Typical divas match here with Askana trying as many ways as possible to get away from Natayla even hiding behind the referee and hugging him!! Lots of back and forth action until Natayla is able to lock on the sharpshooter for the win.
Winner – Natayla
Kofi Kingston vs The Miz
I found this to be a very interesting match. At first both men were very even in the match and there was a handshake before the match started between Kofi and Miz. Crowd were also really split with lots of loud Miz is awesome chants. However part way through the match as the Miz gets back in the ring as Kofi is sitting on the ropes for him, Miz attacks Kofi leg and crowd start boo-ing. Miz is now working as a bad guy and is taking advantage of the situation and doing everything he can to take out the leg of Kofi. Kofi managed to battle back and win with the trouble in paradise.
Winner – Kofi Kingston
6 Man Tag Team Match
Cody, Goldust and Big E Langston vs The Shield
Massive pop from the crowd for Cody, Goldust and Big E. Lots of Goldust chants. Funny moment when The Shield come out to the rig their music is playing but wwe production queued the wrong video and on the screen was The Miz Titantron!! After a short delay the shield come out and all 6 men proceed to have a great tag team match, The shield spent most of the match beating down Goldust and Goldust spent a lot of time trying to make the tag to his corner and eventually he manages to make it and tags in Big E who takes out the shield until the shield get control and all hell breaks loses lots of people hit their finishing moves we get spears, disaster kicks etc then Cody manages to roll up Dean Ambrose for the win. Great match and the crowd were really into this. This match was the match of the night and in my opinion should of been the main event.
Winners – Cody, Goldust and Big E
Fans Choice Dance off
Santino Marella vs Fandango
Well not much to say here really, best thing was actual seeing Mrs Fandango…….Summer Rae damm that lady is fine. Santino and Fandango have a dance off, Santino wins, Fandango attacks Santino, Santino turns the tables and the dance off is over.
Dance off Winner – Santino Marella
Damien Sandow vs Dolph Ziggler
Damien Sandow comes out first and tells the unwashed masses of Wales that although he no longer has his money in the bank briefcase he is still out uncrowned World champion. He tells the crowd that they should feel sorry for Dolph Ziggler. Ziggler comes out and the crowd pop big for Ziggler and see happy to see him. Sandow and Ziggler have a good Match with sandow getting many near falls throughout the match, Ziggler hits the fame asser and gets a 2 count as well. sandow then manages to hit his full Nelson slam for the win.
Winner – Damien Sandow
WWE Title Match
Big Show vs Randy Orton
Big Show and Orton both get into the ring, after a very long entrance by Randy Orton. As soon as Big Show and Orton are in the ring the crowd are chanting ‘we want bryan’ Randy Orton has to get on the mic and address the situation, Orton says he put Bryan in a hospital in USA and Bryan won’t be here tonight. The crowd aren’t happy about this, however the Mach begins. Orton and show have an OK match, but to be honest wasn’t the most memorable main event I have seen, although I did enjoy the conclusion to the match Big Show goes to chokeslam Orton and suddenly the lights go out and Kane music hits!!! Kane walks down to the ring this distracts Big Show, Orton turns show around and hits him with the RKO to win the match. Following the match Kane signals to the back and the shield run out and attack big show. big show manages to fend off The Shield and then hits the KO punch on Orton to end the show. Big Show then gets the microphone and thanks the fans for all the support he has received through the years in Cardiff, Big show ends by saying he will tell Daniel Bryan that all the fans in Cardiff wish him well and this ends the show.
