3/22 WWE house show results from Nassau, NY
Mar 23, 2014 - by Steve Gerweck
1. Dolph Ziggler def. Damien Sandow with the Zig Zag in a short but solid match.
2. Darren Young def. Titus O’Neil with a roll-up in a real quick match. Mark Henry came out afterwards (to a shockingly big pop) and…
3. Mark Henry def. Titus O’Neil in about 10 seconds with the world’s strongest slam. Wade Barrett came out and said he had bad news for Henry, that Barrett was his actual opponent and not O’Neil. This led to a beatdown on Henry by O’Neil and Barrett with Darren Young making the save. Brad Maddox appeared and asked the crowd if they wanted to see O’Neil lose for a third time. He made a tag match and got everyone to chant “loser” at Titus.
4. Darren Young & Mark Henry def. Titus O’Neil & Wade Barrett after Henry pinned Titus again with the WSS. Match got a fair amount of time and was much better than you’d expect. Still, poor Titus.
5. Bella Twins def. Alicia Fox and Aksana. Short but nothing wrong with it.
6. Sheamus def. Alberto Del Rio with the Brogue Kick. Good match.
7. Miz def. Fandango with the Figure-Four. This wasn’t very good and the crowd wasn’t into it at all.
8. Rhodes Brothers def. Rybaxel after Cody hit the Cross-Rhodes on Curtis in a so-so match.
9. Randy Orton def. John Cena to retain the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in a very good steel cage match. Cena was hugely over and Orton got a big reaction as well. Lots of escape attempts and both guys kicked out of each others’ finishers. Orton gave Cena a low blow after a ref bump (not sure why they needed a ref bump in a cage match but whatever) and crawled out the door to win. ***1/2
