Thanks to rajah.com reader Damian Isherwood for sending this in:
Attended the WWE Manchester house show with my wife and thought I'd send in
Before the matches lots of Whooooooo chants and New Day Rocks bouncing around
Strange with the merch, 3 x Roman Reigns shirts, New Day,John Cena, Enzo &
Cass shirts none of which were there. The only merch for wrestlers actually
on the card were AJ Styles, Dean Ambrose, Becky Lynch and Randy Orton.
Dolph Ziggler retained the Intercontinental Heavyweight Title after he pinned
The Miz following a superkick as Miz was distracted by Maryse being sent to
Heath Slater & Rhyno retained the Smackdown Tag Team Titles against Breezango
and The Usos whtn Rhyno gored Tyler Breeze for the 3 count.
Jack Swagger defeated Curt Hawkins in under 10 seconds by making Hawkins tap
to the ankle lock. Hawkins did a promo before the match but was loudly
drowned out by What? chants. Neither wrestler got any reaction from the
Nikki Bella & Naomi defeated Natalya & Carmella when Nikki pinned Carmella.
Nikki got a huge reaction from the crowd.
Baron Corbin beat Kalisto after pinning him with the End of Days. Kalisto was
insanely over with the crowd. When Sin Cara was here earlier in the year he
was hugely loved by the kids in the crowd but Kalisto was loved by everyone.
Really really loud for him.
Kane & American Alpha def Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Randy Orton when Kane
chokeslammed and pinned Luke Harper. At the start of the match looked like
Randy Orton and Luke Harper were telling each other funny stories as they
were stood on the apron just laughing their heads off. Ending came after
Orton RKO'd Jordan and Wyatt hit Sister Abigail on Gable before Kane
chokeslammed Harper for the 3 count.
Hyper Bros def The Ascension when Ryder hit the Rough Ryder on one of the
Ascension. Boring match.
Becky Lynch retained the Smackdown Womens Title by forcing Alexa Bliss to
submit to the disarmbar. Lynch really over with the crowd and Bliss was great
with her strops and tantrums. Good match
AJ Styles defeated Dean Ambrose by pinfall to retain the WWE World
Heavyweight Title after pushing Ambrose into an exposed turnbuckle and
rolling up Ambrose for the pin. Really really good match and the crowd were
hot for this throughout. Lots of duelling AJ Styles/Let's go Ambrose chants.
After the match, Styles ran back into the ring to attack Ambrose but ate
Dirty Deeds to end the show and Ambrose posed and apologised for coming up
