This was the annual night that would see all the titles on the line. I have always
1.[I-C TITLE]CURTIS AXEL VS KOFI KINGSTON-great opening bonus match between these two. Triple h started the night out coming to the ring and was interrupted by Axel and Heyman. This prompted him to make this match right here since it was night of champions. So the US title had to be put on the line. The story here was that Axel now had to compete in two matches as he would face CM Punk later on that night. The action here is really good with Kofi as usual bouncing all over the place showing his athleticism. Axel would ground him though throughout the match like landing that dropkick while Kofi came off the top. Axel keeps the belt here despite some close calls, great opener.
2.[DIVAS TITLE]AJ LEE VS NATALYA VS BRIE BELLA VS NAOMI-this was a better match than we usually get from the Divas. Of course Natalya is always great and even sinks in a double sharpshooter here. But it would be AJ keeping the belt after taking advantage of situations throughout.
3.[WORLD TITLE]ALBERTO DEL RIO VS RVD-this was a good match up with RVD being the home town boy. The action is back and forth with a quick pace. RVD looks really good here with more of the high flying maneuvers. Del Rio works RVD over when he gets the chance and ends up getting DQ’d giving RVD the win.
4.THE MIZ VS FANDANGO-this was one of those filler matches that most events have now a days but in all honesty I liked it. This match is better than it gets credit for as both men do very well here. Fandango may not have taken off like expected but he is good. As far as Miz I have always been a fan of his and both deliver a good match. Of course Miz wins by figure four like he has been doing lately but prior it was a competitive match.
5.[NO DQ]CM PUNK VS CURTIS AXEL & PAUL HEYMAN-this match was just pure fun. The story was Punk wanted to get his hands of Heyman and had to face both guys to do it. Throughout the match Punk would deal with Axel to then go after Heyman only. This of course lead to Axel always going back to blindside Punk. Eventually though since this was an elimination match Punk was able to get rid of Axel and chase Heyman all over the place. He lit him up with the kendo stick and even cuffed him but Ryback would come from nowhere to save the day. The best thing about this match was Heyman’s reactions and facial expressions throughout, I loved it.
6.[US TITLE]DEAN AMBROSE VS DOLPH ZIGGLER-two of my favorite wrestlers do battle with each other here and deliver a really good match. There were a lot of high spots here including a top rope x-factor that nearly took Ambrose out. This was a back and forth affair that ended up being one of the best of the night. Dean gets the win here and keeps the belt for The Shield.
7.[TAG TITLE]SETH ROLLINS & ROMAN REIGNS VS THE PRIME TIME PLAYERS-since The Shield was already out there they stayed at ringside to wait for the match to start. The Players won a match earlier in the night to get the title shot so along with Axel they competed twice in one night. This was a really good tag match in which The Players did a great job here. Titus looked like a beast at points and Young is great so they gave The Shield a run for their money. But Rollins and Reigns were too much along with Dean and retain the titles. Still this was a really good tag encounter.
8.[WWE TITLE]RANDY ORTON VS DANIEL BRYAN-possibly the best match of the night with these two going at it. The action is great and the story is fun with Triple H not letting anyone get involved in the match. This rivalry felt real to me so the match seemed important although the next night on Raw was crazy. Bryan of course wins the belt here after a hard fought match. Randy was vicious as always and Bryan just kept on fighting going back and forth. Great match to end the night on.
1.[TAG TEAM TURMOIL MATCH]THE USOS VS PRIME TIME PLAYERS VS TONS OF FUNK VS REAL AMERICANS VS 3MB-the match starts out with 3MB against Tons of Funk and it goes well until a big mishap has the fans booing. After 3MB is out the Real Americans get to ring and shortly take the big boys out. This brings out the Usos who do very well at first but they are soon eliminated. Next we get the final team being the Prime Time Players and like the rest it does not take long for them to win this one.
