> Big E over Ryback by pinfall after the Big Ending. Surprising good opener. Crowd was hot. Both men, especial Ryback really played the crowd well and got a lot of heat. Constant power moves with little rest holds. Both dudes looked massive.
>
> Bella Twins over Tamina Snuka/Summer Rae. Brie pinned Tamina after Tamina missed the Superfly Splash followed by an X-Factor by Brie. Bella's were very over with the crowd being from Scottsdale.
>
> New Age Outlaws over The Uso's and Real Americans in a Triple a Threat Tag Team Title Match when Billy stole the pin on Swagger following the Top Rope Splash by Jimmy Uso. Fun match. Uso's worked their asses off and Cesaro hit a 20 revolution Giant Swing.
