WWE’s last PPV of 2012, and last PPV before Wrestlemania season kicks into gear, has come and gone and by all accounts it was a lot better than it should have been. Click “read more” for the barebones results/notes from the show taken from the highly-detailed and better written live coverage done by Jason Powell of ProWrestling.net.
The 2012 Survivor Series is barely an hour in the record books and if you’re as addicted to the internet as I am you’ve noticed all the nerdgasms from the hardcore wrestling fans about a certain couple of debuts tonight. But we’ll get to that in a second (that’s called a tease, kids). Hit “read more” for the full results of the show, plus any other notes you need to know to get ready for Raw tomorrow. Results come from both WWE.com and Jason Powell‘s live (and far more detailed, so read it) coverage of the event on ProWrestling.net.
We are now a few hours removed from Hell in a Cell and the internet wrestling community is in an uproar over the controversial ending as well as some unexpected match surprises. What exactly happened? Click “read more” to find out.
Information on Hell in a Cell is taken from Jason Powell‘s live coverage of the event over at ProWrestling.net so go there for more detailed analysis.
Night of Champions has just concluded and for those of you who didn’t want to order the PPV or couldn’t afford it or were too busy watching the NFL, I’ve got the results for you in easy to digest form. Check it out:
So there are the quick results. Nothing too surprising, other than the fact Orton went over Ziggler (a ridiculous move in my opinion but maybe Ziggler will get his revenge this week on TV) and Eve coming out of nowhere to reclaim the Divas Championship (a damn good move). I’ve heard positive stuff about this show so maybe I’ll check it out on DVD sometime in the future. The way way future.
For an actual in-depth recap of Night of Champions, I highly suggest Jason Powell’s coverage over at his site ProWrestling.net
Last night, WWE held their yearly Money in the Bank PPV. From most accounts, it was a lackluster show which makes me feel better for not having ordered it. But still the results are important, so here they are in quick, digestible form in the order they were presented at the show. Occasional comments from me included for free. Results come courtesy of ProWrestling.net.
Pre-Show: R-Truth/Kofi Kingston (c) defeated Hunico/Camacho to retain the WWE Tag Team Titles
1. Smackdown Money in the Bank: Dolph Ziggler defeated Tensai, Damien Sandow, Santino Marella, Christian, Tyson Kidd, Sin Cara, and Cody Rhodes to win the Money in the Bank.
2. World Heavyweight Title Match: Sheamus (c) defeated Alberto Del Rio to retain the World Heavyweight Title
3. Primo/Epico defeated The Prime Time Players (Titus O’ Neil/Darren Young)
4. No-DQ Match for the WWE Title (w/ A.J. as the special referee): CM Punk (c) defeated Daniel Bryan to retain the WWE Championship.
5. Handicap Match: Ryback defeated Curt Hawkins/Tyler Reks
6. Six-Women Tag Team Match: Layla/Kaitlyn/Tamina defeated Eve Torres/Beth Phoenix/Natalya
7. Raw Money in the Bank (Main Event): John Cena defeated The Big Show, Kane, Chris Jericho, and The Miz to win the Money in the Bank
So how’d I do in predicting the results (of the advertised matches)? I got 3/4 correct, with the Smackdown Money in the Bank being the only one I missed. I went with my heart instead of my head (Cody Rhodes 4 LYFE). I don’t regret missing out on Money in the Bank 2012 though; it looked very predictable and didn’t warrant the money WWE would’ve overcharged me. Maybe Summerslam will be a different story…
Did you watch Money in the Bank and love it? Feel free to comment and sh*t on my very ill-informed opinion!
