WWE house show report 6-13 Terre Haute, IN - Cena vs. Kane

The show began with a 10 Bell Salute to the late great Dusty Rhodes. Byron Saxton was the ring announcer and "hype" guy for then show.

Opening Intercontinental Championship Match - (c) Ryback vs. Bray Wyatt
Lots of crowd interaction. The kids are really into Ryback. Tons of "Feed Me More" chants. Good back and forth action. Ryback won with the Shell Shock.

Singles Match - Bo Dallas vs. Jimmy Uso
Bo cut a promo to begin, about his usual shtick. He trashed Terre Haute Indiana. ISO came out to a huge pop from the crowd. Lots of little kids really into Jimmy. Super short match that Jimmy Uso won after hitting a splash off the top.

Post match Bo Dallas challenges anyone from the back to come out and if he loses he'll never come back to this "disgusting town" again.

Singles Match - Bo Dallas vs. Jack Swagger
Swagger answered the challenge and Bo attacked him immediately. Even shorter match than the first one, Swagger won with the Ankle Lock.

Divas Tag Team Match - Naomi & Tamina vs. Nikki and Brie Bella
Best part of then match so far is Naomi's shoes that light up when the lights are out. Formulaic tag. Cut off, cut off, cut off, false tag, hot tag, finish. Rack Attack by Nikki, for a Bella's victory.

Up next is Chris Jericho. He cut an amazing promo as always. Seeing Jericho was really the reason I came. He cut a crazy promo about taking over the WWE from The Authority.

Singles Match - Chris Jericho vs. Luke Harper
Pretty good match. Quality for a house show. But, two fantastic workers. The crowd was really into it. Jericho picked up the win with the Codebreaker.

Intermission

WWE Tag Team Championship Fatal Four Way Match - (c) New Day (Big E & Xavier Woods) vs. The Ascension vs. The Miz & Adam Rose w/ Rosa Mendez vs. The Mega Powers
All four teams really took time to work the crowd, trying to get everyone back into things after the intermission. New Day did some promo work and sang "We Are The Champions" before the match. The crowd exploded for The Mega Powers. Curtis Axel got that hot tag and went crazy. Hulk up, leg drop, everything on The Miz. Big E snuck in after the leg drop and stole the win from Curtis Axel with a simple school boy pin, for The New Day.

Singles Match - Erick Rowan vs. Cesaro
Excellent matchup. Cesaro is just so good. Rowan is very capable himself. The crowd was into the match and the action was hard-hitting for WWE. Cesaro won a really good match after a Big Swing then the Sharpshooter for the submission victory.

Singles United States Championship Main Event Match - (c) John Cena vs. Corporate Kane
As should be expected, John Cena literally blew the roof off this tiny building. Loudest pop of the night. Back and forth match. Lots of "hope" spots for Cena to get the crowd behind him over and over. After 20 some years in the business, my god, Kane is so under rated as a performer. 5 moves of doom, two ref bumps and no ref to count Cenas pin, as the end draws close. Kane with the choke slam, false finish! Two only. Double down. Cena over the top of the cage as Kane tried to go out the door. Cena kick the door shut in Kane's head and Cena escapes for the win.

And the show is over. No return announcement. Just John Cena celebrating ringside as the house lights come on and b show is over.

Okay show for $15.
