Nick Paglino

Curtis AxelThanks to WZ reader JA for sending in the following:

I attended the WWE Live Event in Las Cruces, NM on August 24.  Though many of the wrestlers booked for this event were re-booked for the California event, it still turned out to be a decent show.

3MB (Mahal & McEntire) vs. Primetime Players
winner:  Primetime Players via pinfall

Hunico vs. Great Khali
winner:  Great Khali via pinfall

Ryback vs. Kofi Kingston
winner:  Ryback via pinfall

WWE Universe Choice:  Dance Off turned to Tag Match
Natalya & Kaitlyn vs. AJ Lee & Layla
winner:  Natayla & Kaitlyn via submission (Sharpshooter)

Dolph Ziggler vs. Big E Langston
winner:  Dolph Ziggler via pinfall
(DZ found a sign saying "Langston needs pants" and started a chant

Christian vs. Alberto Del Rio for the WHC
winner:  Christian via DQ

Curtis Axel w/ Paul Heyman vs. CM  Punk
winner:  CM Punk

After the show CM Punk grabbed a sign from the stands and thanked everyone for coming but talked about not forgetting where he came from holding up the sign that said "Eddie Guerrero Country"

Biggest Pops:
CM Punk
Dolph Ziggler
Primetime Players (wow)
*Eddie Guerrero via CM Punk
**Hunico & ADR received mixed pop & heat but mostly cheers.  Considering the area we are in I'm not surprised by that.

Biggest Heat:
Curtis Axel and Paul Heyman
