Kane Vs ryback. Ryback got a good reaction at the start there was quite a bit of ryback merch sold at the event but as the march went on more and more Kane chants kept starting even thought at the start of the match he said he hated Cardiff. Slow marc but the fans remained mostly into ryback throughout. Ryback won with a shellshock after countering a tombstone attempt by Kane.

Main event was Orton vs Rollins. This was a great match. Orton came out first and were massively in to him at first. Rollins got some serious heel heat. Rollins had cut a promo earlier in the night talking about Orton as a challenger and how Orton kept on bragging about beating him. Match was really fun J&J were with Rollins and kept interfering in the match they kept distracting Orton so Rollins would get the advantage. Pockets of fans started to get into Rollins as the match went on similar to Kane but these were mostly drowned out but Orton chants. Orton attempted a punt In this match and got booed for it for some reason. Rollins attempted a phoenix splash in this match and got a massive reaction and eventually hit a curb stomp before Orton kicked out. Rollins also kicked out of a Rko and looked good in the majority of this match. J&J got involved in this match as it Orton was about to hit a second RKO this lead to a DQ finish which got massive heat as most younger fans bought into the fact that he might have won the tittle. All the heels then stamped Orton for a bit and Rollins cut a promo saying that the show wasn't over till he said it was over. By this point Rollins was hated in the arena by almost everyone he the  went to curb stomp Orton but he reversed and hit Mercury and Noble with RKOs as they tried t interfere. Orton then hit Rollins with a RKO from the second Rope which Rollins jumped off to send the crowd home happy. People stared to filter out fast after this.

Overall great show for a smaller stadium went with a friend who has been to the past few Cardiff house shows and said this was the most stacked by far. They announced a return date in November and said tickets went on sales April 24th.

Hope this helps I got some pictures of the event also but most are not of great quality
