WWE house show report 2-1 Orlando

By Chris Hughes

R truth def. Fandango in an average opener.
The Funkadactyls def. aksana and Alicia Fox after the fans voted for a straight wrestling match over dance contest.  Naomi pinned Fox.
Titus O'Neil def. Curt Hawkins. Titus played heel and said he turned on Darren Young because Young wasn't capable of winning a title.
Adrian Neville def. Bo Dallas in a non-title match. They plugged the 2/27 NXT show in Winter Park.
Cody Rhodes and Goldust b Antonio Cesaro and Jack swagger (w/ Zeb Colter). Cody pinned Swagger with the crossroads. Long match with 2 hot tags.  Great action; match of the night.  These guys really work well together.
Sin Cara and Los Matadores b 3MB. No heat at all in this match.  Sin Cara did a plancha to the 3 on the outside, was caught and then Matadores hit a double baseball slide to knock them all down to zero reaction. Never seen anything like that for a high spot.
Big Show b Kane. Show took a choke slam off the top rope, but then won with the KO punch.
John Cena b Randy Orton via DQ.  Crowd was into this match far more than the others.  It's funny how the house shows draw totally different crowds than Raw tapings. Was basically the same as the Rumble match with the ref bump, Orton tap that the ref didn't see, and then belt shot.  There was a point where it looked like Cena took an eye poke and the trainer had to come in and check on him.  They each then kicked out of a finisher and Orton hit the low blow for the DQ.  Cena hit the AA afterwards.
Next show here is Smackdown on July 22.
