So yesterday I went down to my old college and caught a RAW/ECW House Show with my sister, my brother, The_Unity and two of my sister's friends. It was a really fun time and we were RIGHT BY the wrestlers when they came out. Here are the match results and some other thoughts I had... Tony Chimmel was the announcer, Mike Chioda did the first set of matches as the referee. They plugged Kennedy's movie and then the first match started. (No pyro but music did play). I've never been so close to the ring before...we were on the floor but back a little ways but still really close. Kofi Kingston beat Dolph Ziggler with the Trouble in Paridise. Crowd was hot for Kofi the whole match and Dolph was very entertaining. I love this guy. When he came down the aisle he flicked his hands through his hair and water went everywhere...hilarious. Melina beat Beth Phoenix to retain the Women's title. Fun match and Melina won with, I believe, a rollup. Melina got a nice hand, no Santino was bullshit and Beth is a huge beast up close. Jack Swagger beat Tommy Dreamer with the gut-wrench powerbomb to retain ECW title. Tommy had a nice reception and got on the mic and did his my contract is up in June speel. Fun match with the crowd all over Swagger's case...that dude is a giant...he's also awesome. Forgot to mention at one point this girl walked past us and all I saw was her outfit and wondered why the hell you'd dress like a whore to a house show and then I realized it was Mickie James who was about 1 foot away from me and I didnt know it. She did some interview thing and her mic didnt work. Rey Mysterio beat Kane with the 619/Splash deal. Mysterio got a HUGE friggin pop and Kane got a nice one too. Missouri's own haha. Good match...crowd was hot for it. There was a short intermission, new ref is Chad Patton. No John Cone or Charles Robinson is bullshit but what can ya do? Randy Orton vs CM Punk was next...Orton turned Punk's springboard flying clothesline into a RKO (which was awesome), then he picked him up and gave him another one. Most of the crowd was anti-Orton but there were some chanting his name. To which he stopped, got on the mic, told them to shut up as he didnt need their support and also ripped on Cape Girardeau calling the fans inbread or something to that affect. It took him about 5 hours to get in the ring and he looked pissed the entire time...he was awesome. The best part is this, though. My sister ran up to the railing for their entrances and some kid, like 15 years old, was wearing an Orton shirt and was booing Randy or something. Randy's response? "Why are you wearing my shirt you fucking faggot?" hahahaha I died laughing when she told us, that's awesome. Mean, but awesome. He doesnt want anybody cheering him or rooting for him. Moving on... Mike Knox won a fun little battle royal over Dolph Ziggler (yes, again), Cody Rhodes, Ted DiBiase, and Cryme Tyme. It was a fun match and my sister got a sweet shot of Knox's beard. Last match was Shawn Michaels over Chris Jericho with sweet-chin music. No John Cena on the card but having HBK there was so cool considering he hardly does any house shows during the year. Jericho was awesome...tearing down the crowd, yelling at the fans and just being an awesome heel. So it was a fun time. There were a ton of kids there but who cares. These house shows allow the wrestlers to interact a lot more.
