Jack Swagger vs. Titus O’Neil
It’s funny how usually people don’t realize how big of a guy Swagger is. Titus tends to look like a monstrous giant in the ring but against Swagger, he looks just normal sized. It was a clash of titans so to speak.
Titus still dominated the pace for quite a while. He managed to show off his strength by tossing Swagger in the barricade.
However, the Real American applied the Patriot Lock and got a victory.
After the match, Swagger delivered a passionate promo to Rusev. He said that Zeb Colter was like a father to him and Rusev’s attack was a cowardly act. And now, the Real American is focused on getting the US title.
This time around, the feud between Swagger and Rusev is shaping up to be much better. Fighting for your country is one thing but add a personal motivation and things change completely. Hurting a loved one is something that cannot be forgiven.
Adam Rose & The Bunny vs. Gold & Stardust
At the start of the match Stardust gave the Bunny a long and studying stare. If I were Stardust, I’d also wonder what the hell I’m doing there.
The Bunny didn’t do much. He just danced around and shook his behind. Typical, unfunny stuff. I really, really dislike the Bunny storyline.
Most of the match was made by Adam Rose and Goldust. The Bunny got in in the end and was on a roll but Adam Rose tagged himself in and ended up losing to the Dark Matter and Stardust.
After the match, Goldust kicked down the Bunny, who was taking care of Adam Rose.
This match, I believe, was designed to show off a more darker and violent side of the Cosmic Brothers, rather than develop the Adam Rose/Bunny rivalry.
The Usos Promo
This was NOT a typical Usos promo. While Jay was trying to be his usual happy-go-lucky self, Jimmy was on a completely different wavelength.
Jimmy was angry. You could see in his eyes that he had lost it. He yelled at his brother and made it clear that he will tear Miz apart.
This new side of Jimmy is something that I like very much. A character needs to have layers and this storyline provides the Usos with the opportunity to reveal a new one.
Fandango vs. R-Truth
I was watching this match but all I could think off was: It must be mating season in Rosa Mendes land. This woman is so distracting. I don’t know how Fandango focuses on his opponents with Rosa sensually touching herself outside the ring.
The new version of Fandango is more aggressive and doesn’t care about flirting. He hit Truth in the ring post and then delivered a top rope leg drop for the win.
The WWE must have a plan for Fandango. They keep pushing him in every show throughout the week. I hope this time it works out for him better.
Miz vs. Jimmy Uso
Miz delivered a promo before the match. He apologized and explained that his only intention is to help Naomi’s career. Then the Miz added that he could do more for Naomi’s career than her husband could ever do. Looking at Jimmy Uso’s blood shot eyes, I wouldn’t have said that.
Jimmy went berserk and slapped the shades off of Miz’ face. The beating was so bad that the A-Liser had to run for cover in the audience and Jay had to restrain his brother.
When the match started, Jimmy didn’t want to wrestle. He wanted to beat the Miz to a pulp.
At one point, the anger got the better of him and the A-lister gained momentum. Jimmy almost got counted out after the Miz dropped him on the outside. The cameras showed Naomi with a concerned look on her face backstage.
Then, Jimmy unleashed his anger and the Miz just wanted to leave. However, he didn’t get the chance. Thanks to Mizdow’s stunt double antics, Jay and Jimmy delivered a double splash and Jimmy got the three count.
Winning wasn’t enough for Jimmy. He left as frustrated as he arrived. Jay was struggling to keep him under control. Those anger management issues might cost the Usos the titles. At least, that’s what Miz is hoping for.
