Report by PWTorch specialist Ben Tucker and PWTorch reader Zack Arrasmith
(1) Mark Henry & IC champion Big E. beat Damien Sandow & Brodus Clay. Sandow got cheap heat by wearing a University of Kentucky t-shirt.
(2 & 3) Kofi Kingston beat Titus O’Neil via roll-up as soon as the match started. Titus demanded Kofi face him again then promptly lost again via roll-up.
(4) Rusev beat Zack Ryder. Ryder got in more offense than you might expect, but Rusev was still impressive.
(5) Nikki Bella beat Alicia Fox with Aksana as special referee. Aksana kept slow-counting, so Nikki pulled down Aksana’s hand for a three count.
(6) Cesaro beat Sin Cara via Neutralizer. Really good back and forth match. Cesaro is just a joy to watch. Big Swing set up the ending.
(7) Dolph Ziggler beat Alberto Del Rio via Zig-Zag. Match of the Night with a couple of good false finishes.
(8) “Bad News” Wade Barrett beat Tyson Kidd. Pretty much a squash. Barrett made fun of the Derby before the match.
(9) Sheamus beat Batista via DQ when Batista kept hitting him against the ring steps. Really flat finish to an otherwise good match.
(10) John Cena & Rob Van Dam & Big Show beat The Wyatts in a six-man tag match. Wyatts dominated most of the match before Cena got the hot tag and everyone hit their finishers.
From Zack: Overall, a fun show. Nothing mind-blowing, but everything was enjoyable for what it was.
