WWE Sydney, Australia House Show Results From July 4th

Matt Boone

Daniel Nichols sent along the following:

Hey guys, was at the Sydney house show tonight. Thought I’d send in some quick results and thoughts.
Goldust def. Chavo Guerrero
Hornswoggle distracted Chavo and Goldust hit the curtain call. After, tadpoll splash on Chavo.
Mickey James was in the crowd and announced a family had won ringside tickets thanks to answering the name of the next WWE PPV.

Sheamus def. Jamie Noble
No one knew who Sheamus was, and no one cared who Noble was. Crowd was dead silent, such a shame to cause it was an ok match. Noble with a few moves but squash in the end.

Santino Marella def. The Brian Kendrick
Once again, the crowd was completely silent throughout. Santino drew a few laughs and wins with a roll up to his "suprise"

The Miz def. MVP
Miz calls MVP a chubby chaser and wins over alot of fans. Miz wins a short match. I was really annoyed by this stage because this crowd were awful and didnt respect anything the heels did at all.

US. Championship – Kofi Kingston def. William Regal
Regal worked the crowd to perfection. Was on the mic, was stopping mid match to drop to the outside to yell at fans, and spent five minutes after the match challenging a group of fans. Kofi wins with a kick to Regals shoulder. Kofi with the hand slap at least 6 times in this match. Frustrating cause once again, small pop for entrance, then dead

Legacy def. Primo and Carlitio
Finally felt like a main event type atmosphere after the intermition. Legacy were in great form. Teased the brothers turning after Carlito was pinned. Crowd seemed to get excited and seemed let down that they shook hands.

Maryse def Kelly Kelly to retain women’s title
Crowd went pretty nuts for Kelly and were all over Maryse early. Don’t think anyone could really tell them apart as they wore almost the same attire. Was awsome to watch, Kelly did her usual acrobatics and Maryse with the DDT and the win.

Triple H and John Cena def. Randy Orton and Big Show.
Crowd was all over Show in paticular. Orton’s reaction was mixed, as was Cena’s but the kids drowned everyone else out. Triple H outshone Cena easily pop wise. Same match we’ve seen before, Orton and Show dominate Cena, tag in Triple H, then Cena and HHH double suplex and hit finishers on Show for the win. During the match Triple H chased Orton backstage with a chair which was pretty funny. After the match, the Big Show stands and wobbles for a good minute before Triple H puts him down with the one finger. Both Cena and HHH play to the crowd, Hunter stays back a good five minutes after Cena.
Thoughts: Worst crowd I’ve ever been involved in.It was deadset 70% kids, who looked like they were falling asleeping until Cena/Triple H came out. Officially it was the biggest crowd for a WWE event at the Superdome (18,000 + fans) but at no stage did it sound anything near that. I did the usual siding with the heels things, then when Triple H and Cena won the main event, had a woman in her 30’s go "i bet you feel stupid now … Cena won" … You’re kiddin me right? Everyone knew the result in advance … except her
Biggest Pops: Triple H, Cena, Kofi
Biggest Heat: Big Show, Orton, Maryse
After the show, everyone (except Triple H) walked out the back and onto the bus. The kids went nuts for Cena and booed the heels, which doesnt usually happen after the show. Cena looked REALLY tired and didnt stick around long. Santino was the star of the after show, he kept running off the bus to blow kisses and act like he couldnt believe we were cheering him. Was alot of fun. Orton kept teasing he was going to take his pants off and had to be "stopped" by agents.
