4/21 WWE RESULTS FROM GLASGOW, SCOTLAND
By John McGovern on 2012-04-22 11:54:02
The event incorporated the new WWE House show setup. I was impressed with the new screens and "Light sabre" entranceway.
Lillian Garcia is introduced. Then we a get the "Yes sir this is entertainment" on the big screen. This was cool.
Jinder Mahal vs. The "Funkasaurus" Brodus Clay.
Mahal out first to the usual boos. Brodus is out and he introduces us to his mascot who is Hornswoggle. Hornswoggle is dressed like Clay, as he was on Smackdown. The exact same tracksuit and hat. An elaborate squash match. By that I mean a Raw match extended by five mins. Brodus gets the win this match with the big splash.
Curt Hawkins, Tyler Reks and Percy Watson vs. The Usos and Mason Ryan.
Mason was over before he hit the ring. The heels already in the ring were selling his size. The Usos and Mason worked over Tyler early. This switched when Percy hit an Uso with outside interference. The heels then worked over the Uso in the ring for a while. Percy was never in the ring it was all Hawkins and Reks. The crowd wanted Ryan in. Hot tag to Ryan. Mason cleans house and gets the pin fall on Hawkins. Hawkins sells the finisher after the match whilst Reks and Watson argue and shove each other all the way back behind the curtain.
Bryan Daniel promo on the big screen. This is the pre tour promo that they play in every city. It was still cool though.
Alberto Del Rio vs. The Great Khali.
Next out was Ricardo Rodriguez. This was the mark out moment for me. He won me at the Rumble. Ricardo introduces ABR. Out next is Khali. All I can say is yes he is tall. Del Rio works the legs mostly. Khali gets a small comeback then it is over to ADR to work the legs again. Alberto into the armbreaker takes us to the finish. ADR is the victor.
This was my beer break. SORRY. Anyway it was Alicia Fox vs. Nattie Neidhart. Alicia won.
Cody Rhodes vs. The Big Show.
Cody comes to the ring and cuts a promo on "What has Scotland done?". Cody says "He has nothing left to lose he will be the NEW WWE intercontinental Champion". Big Show hits the ring. Back and forth match with Cody working the legs. Big show calls Lillian to the mat to hold the mic whilst Big Show gives Cody a Ric Flair chop. Rhodes works the legs some more. Including putting the big man into a figure four. Greeted by big wooooooos. Cody with two spring kicks to head and a kickout later. We have Show ready to knock-out punch him. This ends up a Chokeslam and 1,2 and 3.
Intermission. Lillian giving away a program and a tour t shirt.
Drew Galloway vs ???
Drew came out and cut a promo on how great it was to be home. Massive pop. Whilst Drew thanked his mom and Dad, Christian comes out and cuts him off. He tries to insinuate that he will beat in a handicap match with Mark Henry. Booker T makes the save.
Drew Galloway and Booker T vs. Christian and Mark Henry.
Just to put this out there right now. Mark Henry is mammoth. The heels work Drew for most of the match. Hot tag to Booker. Booker comes in and cleans out house. To quote the seven to eight year old behind me Booker is on Fire. Booker scores the pin with an Ax kick. The spin a roni sees out this match.
Randy Orton vs. Kane. Falls count anywhere.
Kane out first. Randy gets a great pop. The match is a basic match match until Kane exits the Ring. Randy is clobbering him now on the entranceway. Back to the ring and Kane is now in control. Kane look under the ring apron. Out comes a Kendo stick. Kendo stick on Randy s legs. near fall. Kane throws the Kendo stick to the outside. Randy some how makes a come back and gets the kendo stick and whacks Kane's back a few times. Further back and forth moves until Kane gets the advantage and moves back under the mat for a steel chair. Randy cuts him off outside DDT to the steel chair and with the crowds help we are looking at the RKO on steel. Randy wins here.
Daniel Bryan vs. Sheamus. World Title Match.
Daniel is out first. Yes, Yes and Yes. B Daniels cuts a great promo on the crowd. A true heel promo. I was loving it. Sheamus out next. loud pops and to and fro crowd chanting. This is wrestling. A real back and forth match with emotion from everyone in the arena. When it comes down to it. he great White walks away with the old for Sunday. Role on Sunday so I can chant Yes again and the belt is restored to "real" worlds Champion.Pops:
