WWE House Show Results (4/18): Sheffield, England


The following report comes courtesy of Freddy_Mac and F4WOnline.com

Sell out. Crowd not as hot as when the Raw brand came here last year.

(1) The Great Khali defeated Jindar Mahal

It’s been said countless times but Khali really can barely walk. Match as you would expect, not very good.

(2) The Usos & Percy Watson beat Tyler Reks, Curt Hawkins & Drew McIntyre

Fairly decent six man tag.

(3) Alberto Del Rio w/Ricardo submitted Mason Ryan.

Really short match, like two minutes. Del Rio has a lot of charisma, Really a nothing match with Del Rio winning with his cross armbreaker.

(4) Alicia Fox pinned Natalya.

Aksana was the guest referee. Crowd not into this match at all besides popping when Natalya used the Sharpshooter at one point.

(5) Booker T & Brodus Clay w/Hornswaggle beat Mark Henry & Christian.

Plenty of stalling and comedy. Booker T wrestling was a nice surprise. Brodus Clay called Sheffield “Newcastle” on the mic before the match (they are in Newcastle tomorrow night). Afterwards Brodus Clay, Hornswaggle and Booker T did the Spinaroonie and then the Brodus dance.

(6) The Big Show defeated Cody Rhodes to retain the Intercontinental title.

Ok match, Big Show looked to be struggling moving around at times. Big Show won with a chokeslam.

(7) Randy Orton pinned Kane in a no DQ match.

They used a kendo stick and chairs. Both did their signature spots, fairly good match. RKO for the win.

(8) Sheamus defeated Daniel Bryan to retain the World Heavyweight title.

Really good match. It was a brawl, at one point Bryan missed a diving headbutt from the top. Brogue Kick for the pin.

No post-show stuff besides Sheamus signing autographs and posing for photos.

Lots of parents with kids, most popular shirts were the new green Cena one and the CM Punk grey one.

They had large screens up and played the titantron videos during entrances and played a few promos in between matches.
