Matt Striker then went back on the mic and stated that anything can happen at a house show then suddenly The Undertaker's music played which draw a massive pop from the crowd then CM Punk's music played which jeered the crowd as most of the men strongly cheered. CM Punk was in street clothes which meant he wasn't going to wrestle. CM Punk came out with the urn and played around with it dropping it a few times and mocking Undertaker's signature pose with Paul Heyman holding the urn ala Paul Bearer. Punk did a promo about how he was going to defeat The Undertaker at WrestleMania and the streak will go to 20-1. One notable line was where the crowd was chanting "You suck" and Punk stated "Show some respect for Paul Bearer does not suck!" which drew some oh's from the crowd. I'm guessing they wanted to play it safe with CM Punk with the injury he suffered on Raw Monday.
Matt Striker then stated the Main Event was next.
Seth Rollins hit Ryback and Sheamus with the chair to cause the disqualification. After the disqualification, The Shield continued to attack Ryback until Sheamus and Cena came in and Sheamus threw Reigns over the top rope while Cena and Ryback did their finishers simutaneously to send the crowd home happy and high fived the fans at ringside. A lot of strong action and The Shield was just as impressive to see in person. This was definitely match of the night for me and the crowd was with it the entire way. All three faces got strong cheers from the crowd and The Shield got strong heat from the kids mainly.
Overall this was a very entertaining and enjoyable house show for the most part. It was very strange to only have six matches and two promos at a house show.
