There were “C.M. Punk” chants at the start of the show, but most of the chants were “Yes.” Triple H came on the Titantron during the show and encouraged people to take pictures, etc.

(1) WWE tag champions The Usos beat Curtis Axel & Ryback to retain the WWE Tag Titles.

(2) Goldust beat Heath Slater.

(3) Antonio Cesaro beat Sami Zayn. Before the match, Zayn told ring announcer Tony Chimel to announce him tomorrow from Syria because he has Syrian blood. Then, he said in Arabic, “Hello hello Arab people.”

(4) The Shield (Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns) beat The Wyatts (Luke Harper & Erick Rowan) in a tag match.

(5) U.S. champion Dean Ambrose beat Dolph Ziggler, Kofi Kingston, and Cody Rhodes in a fatal four-way match to retain the U.S. Title. After the match, all four men shook hands, hugged, and raised Ambrose’s hand.

(6) Sheamus beat Damien Sandow. Earlier in the show, Sandow told fans to cheer him. Surprisingly, after coming in and out three times, he succeeded.

(7) Randy Orton beat Mark Henry. Surprisingly, Henry got booed and Orton got the biggest cheers.

(8) John Cena beat Bray Wyatt via DQ after interference. There were “Cena Sucks” chants. After the match, Cena challenged the Wyatts to a six-man tag match tomorrow night with Dolph Ziggler and Sheamus since they were the ones who saved him from the assault.

The arena was not filled up. Almost a quarter of the arena was empty.
