WWE Live Event Results From Hartford (12/27): Del Rio's Open Challenge, Cesaro - Booker, John Cena
Kaitlyn, Alicia Fox, Rosa, & Aksana vs. The Bellas & The Funkadactyls
The Fans Choice resulted in a Diva Santas Helper Dance Off, which the crowd and myself were very happy about. Kaitlyn, Alicia Fox, Rosa, & Aksana vs Bellas & Funkadactyls. Kaitlyn, Alicia Fox, Rosa & Aksana put a lackadaisical effort into it while The Bellas & Funkadactyls just killed it, easily winning. They looked really hot from my ringside seats shaking their moneymakers! A brawl breaks out & GM Maddox comes out and turns it into a tag match. Pretty good Divas match with The Bellas & Funkadactyls winning. Crowd was very into the match.
Kane vs. Big Show
Out comes special referee Booker T to a huge pop from crowd. New corporate Kane comes out with no mask and a nice haircut. Even my 12 year old boy says he doesn't look scary anymore. Big Show comes out to a big pop from the crowd. He gets into the ring and gets the crowd to give lots of love to Booker T by encouraging the crowd behind Booker T's back. Great big man match. Kane chokeslams Show from the top rope and goes for the cover but only gets a 2 3/4 count. Kane is furious and gets up yelling at Booker T. He tries to chokeslam Booker T but Booker slips out and gives a Kane a scissor kick and Kane then turns around into a knockout punch from Big Show. Show covers for the win. After the match the crowd is chanting for a spineroonie from Booker. But first Booker says we need to do a favor for him. Bookers calls out Real American Antonio Cesaro and makes us sing Happy Birthday to him. Booker says he always wanted Cesaro to do his spin move on him. Cesaro agrees to do it to Booker T, then Booker does his spineroonie for the crowd.
The Viper comes out to huge pop from crowd as he leisurely strolls down the ramp. Crowd loved him. Then Cena comes out to an even huger pop. By far the biggest pop of the night. Crowd is going nuts for both of them. During Cena's intro, The Viper attacks Cena from behind. The bell rings and we begin. Awesome match. Big match feel just like a TV taping. Crowd very into match and on their feet almost all the match from bell to bell. By far the best match of the night. Lots of "Lets go Cena/Cena sucks" chants during match. Very back and forth match. Orton kept egging on crowd when Cena was down doing Cena's hand wave to himself and going into his classic Viper stance on the ropes. Some great action outside of the ring too during the match. Both of them kicked out of finisher moves. Cena went for an "AA" but Orton was holding onto the top rope. Cena finally pulls him off but accidently hits the ref with Orton's foot and knocks out the ref. Cena puts Orton into his submission hold STFU & Orton taps out but the ref is still out cold. Orton gets up grabs one of his Champion Straps and hits Cena over the head with it. The Viper pulls the ref up and goes for the cover but Cena kicks out. Orton the hits a low blow and gets DQ. Crowd is going crazy over this. Orton goes for the Punt Kick but misses and Cena hits the AA on Orton to send the crowd home happy.
After the match Cena walked around ringside giving high fives, including one to me, and signing autographs. I couldn't bring myself to give Cena my "The Viper RKO Away" sign that already has Randy Orton's autograph on it for Cena to autograph for fear of Cena destroying it! Lol
Overall a great show and a great crowd.
