9/6 WWE house show results from Fairfax, VA
1. Cesaro defeated The Miz via submission. Cesaro’s ribs were taped, selling the injury from Raw. He won after turning the Big Swing into a Sharpshooter.
2. Fandango beat Adam Rose. Rose came out with no music and plain black tights. He cut a promo, complaining how no one appreciates the Rosebuds or the Exotic Experience. Because of the, he claimed, he will not let anyone have anymore fun. Fandango won with a flying heel kick.
3. The New Day defeated The Lucha Dragons to retain the WWE World Tag Team Championship. No Xavier Woods. Kofi and Big E had to work to fight off the face response they were getting. The Lucha Dragon’s offense got the crowd in their side. The match ended when Big E hit Sin Cara with the Big Ending while the ref was distracted, allowing Kofi to get the pin.
4. Dolph Ziggler over Rusev (w/Summer Rae). Huge pop for Dolph. A “We want Lana” broke out early. Rusev got on mic to tell Dolph that his actions on Raw were the reason that Lana was absent. The match ended when Rusev nearly ran into Summer, who was on the apron, and Dolph hit the Zig-Zag for the pinfall.
5. Becky Lynch and Charlotte defeated Sasha Banks and Tamina. This match started after the intermission. A good portion of the crowd had not returned, which effected the response. Sasha was over with the crowd. The ending came when Charlotte took the hot tag and pinned Tamina with Natural Selection.
6. Sheamus beat Jack Swagger. Nice reaction for Swagger, considering he’s been off TV for a while. There was a loud “You look stupid” chant, which got Sheamus on the mic to heel on the audience. Swagger was distracted when Sheamus brought the Money in the Bank briefcase into the ring and hit the Brouge Kick for the pin.
7. John Cena defeated Kevin Owens in a street fight. A huge pop for Cena. Owens got on mic and did his best Jerry Lawler by commenting as he was attacking Cena. These guys used multiple chair, the ring steps, and tables. Cena eventually gave Owens an AA through a table for the pin.
A smaller crowd than I would have thought. The arena was about 1/3 full.
