Report by Ruben Lomeli, PWTorch reader
(1) Brodus Clay beat David Otunga. The crowd got up and started dancing to Clay's music.
(2) Ryback (Skip Sheffield) beat JTG. Ryback pretty much dominated.
(3) Divas champion Beth Phoenix beat Nikki Bella to retain the Divas Title. Fun fight. It was funny to see Nikki mock Beth by doing her arm pose and trying to Glam Slam the champ.
(4) WWE tag champions Epico & Primo beat Alex Riley & Mason Ryan to retain the Tag Titles.
Eve came out to talk and defend herself in the Zack Ryder situation. The crowd booed her as soon as her song played. She played nice, and the crowd boos got louder, so she got mad and said, "I'm prettier than all the women in here. No man is worthy of having me." That's when the "hoeski" chants came on.
(5) R-Truth beat The Miz. The crowd went nuts for Truth when he came out rapping and dancing. The crowd joined along, shouting "What's up?!" Miz tried to defend Eve by saying she is a beautiful woman and all kinds of nice stuff, but the "hoeski" chants came back.
(6) U.S. champion Jack Swagger beat Santino to retain the U.S. Title. Fun fight. A lot of goofiness from Santino and, suprisingly, Swagger, as well.
(7) Chris Jericho beat Kofi Kingston. As soon as the lights went out, you could hear "Y2J" chants. Jericho came out and talked about being the best at everything he does.
(8) WWE champion C.M. Punk beat Kane and Dolph Ziggler in a three-way match to retain the WWE Title. The special guest enforcer was Jericho. The crowd was very, very pro-Punk!
Overall, very fun night. There were a lot of people in attendance, maybe even sold-out. Great matches and the WWE Superstars are very fan-friendly in arena. I will definitely go back when they return. The downside was the souvenir shop. They had great selection, but the lines were disorganized. For a corporation that big, they should have better lines.
