WWE Live Event Madison Square Garden:3/18/12

Hey Ladies and Gentlemen. Just got home from the live event as MSG and what a great show it was! Had a lot of fun. Probably about the whole arena was sold out with a few scattered empty seats and all the seats behind the ramp. Lot's of Cena fans (kids) and a lot of Rock/Punk fans as well. Here are the results.

Zack Ryder vs The Miz- Ryder comes out to a pretty big hometown pop and Miz comes out to some good heat. An ok back and forth matchup and great to see Ryder back in action. Ryder picked up the win after a double knee to the face followed by the Rough Ryder for the victory.

R Truth/ Kofi Kingston vs Primo & Epico w. Rosa Mendez Tag Team Championship- R-Truth came out to his Whats Up theme and got a decent ovation and same thing for Kofi. The Colons came out to a a tiny bit of heat. Pretty good match, both teams getting offense in. Kofi hits the trouble in paradise for the win! But Primo's foot was on the rope and John Laurinaitis came out and said that and told the ref to restart the match and Primo picks up the win with a backstabber.

Jack Swagger w. Vickie Guerrero vs Santino Marrella U.S. Championship- Mostly a comedy match. One point Swagger did pushups and Santino responded by doing crunches. Typical Swagger match, headlock takeover, step behind into a waistlock and the Swagger bomb. Santino goes for the Cobra but cannot connect and Swagger hits a Gutwrench powerbomb and uses the ropes for the three count! But Long comes out to restart the match because of his feet being on the ropes. Hornswoggle comes in and bites Swagger on the ass and Santino hits a cobra and retains. Laurinaitis and Long were arguing on the outside. Then Long/Santino/Hornswoggle danced around in the ring.

Mason Ryan vs Alberto Del Rio- Mason Ryan comes out to nary a peep and then Del Rio comes out to a good sized pop. The match went for like a minute as Del Rio locked in the Cross Armbreaker. A typical squash match.

Cody Rhodes/Dolph Ziggler/Chris Jericho vs Randy Orton/CM Punk/Triple H- Cody took a while to come out and then did to a contained ovation. Ziggler got a ok pop with some heat and Jericho got a great pop with some Y2J chants. Orton comes out to a huge pop and CM Punk follows suit. HHH comes out to the pop of the night by far. Great match and match of the night. A lot of offense from both sides. The whole match Punk tried getting his hands on Jericho. As the match started Jericho grabbed the mic and said we can all chant CM Punk all we want but he's still the best in the world at everything he does. Punk chased Jericho to the back on two occasions and the second time Jericho didn't come back. Rhodes and Ziggler had worked over HHH after Jericho broke up a pin on Ziggler after a pedigree. Orton came back in and RKO'ed Ziggler and then Punk who came back hit a GTS on Rhodes and then Triple H tombstoned Ziggler to win the match and send a message to The Undertaker. Great match and the winners celebrated.


Eve comes out to cut a promo, saying she deserves the Hoeski chants and that she's said and done some terrible things and she just wants to prove herself as a better person and that she's here to cheer for four of the strongest women in the world.

Beth Phoenix/Natalya vs Tamina Snuka/Kelly Kelly- Some sort of ovation for both teams and your typical divas match. Eve trips Kelly who then eats a glam slam from Beth and Beth wins for her team.

Daniel Bryan vs Mark Henry vs Big Show World Championship Match- Bryan comes out to a mix of cheers and boo's, mostly cheers. Henry comes out to some cheers and then Big Show to a huge pop. Bryan spent most of the match trying to sneak his way to victory but Henry and Show both swat him away. Show and Henry use lots of headbutts and clotheslines on everyone and Bryan eats a spear from Show and others. Ending comes when Show chokeslams Henry  and Bryan takes him out and pins Henry for the win.

John Cena vs Kane- Last Man Standing- Cena comes out to a huge pop and a chorus of boos as well. Kane got a ok reaction. Lots of weapons including chairs, ringbells, steel steps, microphones and tables. A lot of mic shots to Cena's head from Kane and even a chokeslam to Cena but he won't stay down. Kane put Cena through a table but Cena kept fighting and hit an AA on Kane through a table for the victory. Solid match.
After the match Cena thanked the fans, said Rock already made his yearly appearance at MSG this year and that WM 29 would be coming back to New York.

Overall a great show, a lot of fun, second show in 4 months at MSG I've been to and can't wait to go back.
