WWE Nottingham, England house show results (11/13): Roman gets biggest reaction for main event

Submitted by Peter Leivers

Neville vs. Stardust

Loud pop for Neville and good heat Stardust. A good back and forth match finishing with Neville hitting the red arrow for the win.

Fandango & Damien Sandow vs. Adam Rose & Heath Slater

Another big pop for Fandango/Sandow and good heat Adam Rose pretty quiet for Heath Slater. Fandango wins with a roll-up on Slater.

King Barrett vs. Jack Swagger vs. WWE U.S. Champion Alberto del Rio

Barrett got really good heat. Lots of Rooney chants after Raw on Monday.  Mix of boos and cheers for Swagger and similar for ADR although not as big a reaction. It's a strange situation as no one seems to know who to get behind as although Barrett is in his home country he is definitely playing heel. Del Rio came out to his face music but was acting a mix of face and feel and Swagger was acting the face. All a bit confusing. ADR got the win with the arm bar on Swagger.

Luke Harper, Erick Rowan, Braun Strowman vs. Usos and Ryback

Again a good back and forth match with the Wyatts breaking character to be more traditional classic heels Wyatts get the win with Strowman submissin after four good Uso superkicks.

Naomi & Sasha Banks vs. Becky Lynch & NXT Women's Champion Bayley

Unfortunately the crowd weren't too hot for this. The only reason I can think is that there won't be many people are NXT in the U.K so might not be familiar of the history of Sasha, Bayley and Becky. The crowd picks up with the hot tag to Becky who wins with the arm bar.

Lucha Dragons vs. Ascension vs. Los Matadores

One of Los Matadores hit an Eddie Guerrero Three Amigos to Sin Cara followed by the shimmy and chest beating which sadly didn't get a massive reaction as I don't think it landed that it was 10 years since Eddie's death.  George Thorogood's "Bad to the Bone" hits and El Tortito enters and attacks Los Matadores causing confusion leading to Kalisto hitting the Salida del Sol to eliminate Ascension.  Lucha Dragons get the win via another Eddie tribute with a Sin Cara frog splash.

No Holds barred: Roman Reigns vs. Bray Wyatt

Reigns got the biggest pop of the night. A good match between both guys using the stairs, a kendo stick, 2 tables and chairs. Wyatt played a more classic heel role at one point shouting to the crowd, "Look at my muscles," whilst he had Reigns in a rest hold. Both guys went though tables in good spots.  Reigns eventually got the win after Bray a hit chair placed in corner between the ropes and then spear for the 123.

Notes:

- A good show unfortunately no proper mention of Eddie Guerrero just the couple of spots in the triple threat tag match.

I was at the Nottingham show in April and this was a much better show and much better crowd than last time. It was a full house and the show was announced by Eden. Pre-show, we had to vote to view a classic match on the TitanTron. We got Taker vs. Mankind at Survivor Series.
