Pre-show: WWE announced a Twitter poll stipulation for the Roman Reigns vs. Big Show main event. Reigns's mention got a big pop.

Overall, surprisingly decent crowd given the huge lack of star power on this show compared to the New Mexico show. If I were to eyeball it, I would say around 5,000 in attendance. The lower bowl was full and the upper level was mostly empty with pockets of sold tickets.

(1) R-Truth beat Tyson Kidd. Cheap heat for Kidd wearing a Calgary Flames jersey in Edmonton. Truth won with downward spiral. Decent opener. (**1/2)

(2) Darren Young beat Adam Rose. Nothing match. I spent most of the match trying to figure out which local wrestlers were Rosebuds tonight. Young won with a roll-up, then Rose attacked Rosebuds after the match. (*)

(3) Ryback beat Kane. Lots of punching and kicking, then Ryback won with Shellshock. (1/2*)

Connor the Crusher promo. All the feels.

(4) WWE tag champs The Usos beat The Miz & Damien Mizdow to retain the Tag Titles. Mizdow got the first really strong ovation of the night. Miz cheap-heated the crowd ripping the Oilers. Usos then cut a promo about how no one likes Miz and everybody loves Sandow. He mentioned going to WWE.com to sign up for the Network, which drew boos since we still can't get it legally in Alberta. As for the match, Mizdow's act is super distracting and hilarious in-person. Fun match. Usos won after a superkick party and splash. (**1/2)

Chris Jericho came out in his gear for the Highlight Reel. Great ovation for Jericho, who cut a good Jericho promo. Cesaro interrupted to talk some trash in English and Swiss, which led to...

(5) Chris Jericho beat Cesaro. Cesaro doesn't get a whole lot of time to shine on TV, but he thrives on house shows with plenty of time in his matches to showcase his actual personality. Excellent back and forth match won by Jericho with the Codebreaker. Always great watching Jericho because you never know if/when he will be back. (***1/2)

[Intermission]

(6) Naomi & Emma & NXT Women's champion Charlotte beat Summer Rae & Cameron & NXT'er Sasha Banks in a six-Divas tag match. Quite interesting teams. Charlotte got a bunch of Woos and worked as a traditional babyface. The NXT girls are so great; Death Ray is doing great work in Florida. Naomi won in about six minutes pinning Cameron with the Rear View.

Big Show promo. He got a good pop and the first line of his promo was: "You're going to boo me now?" Funny. He talked trash about Reigns.

(7) U.S. champion Rusev (w/Lana) beat Erick Rowan via submission to retain the U.S. Title. Rusev got a surprisingly mixed reaction. Lana ripped on Canada to turn the crowd on them before hyping Fast Lane. Decent pop for Rowan. Typical big-man power match that Rusev won fairly quickly with The Accolade. (*1/2)

The Main Event was Roman Reigns vs. Big Show in a Street Fight. Very strong pop for Reigns, the former Edmonton Eskimo.

(8) Roman Reigns beat Big Show in a Street Fight. Pretty much the same match we have seen forever on Smackdown. Big Show has such as strong presence live and is still a very good big man. Tables, steps, and other plunder were used. Fun WWE main event-style brawl that the crowd was quite invested in. They teased a Reigns spear through the table a few times, then Reigns won with a spear through the table in around 15 minutes.

Quite a fun show even with the lack of star power. House shows are always very fun to attend.

Biggest Cheers:

- Roman Reigns
- Chris Jericho
- Mizdow

Most Heat:

- Tyson Kidd
- Big Show
- Rusev/Lana

Reigns got cheered?

Ugh.

Oh well, I suppose even Cena gets cheered at houshows. Still, it would've been nice if they booed him.
House shows typically have a much more different crowd reactions than that of televised shows. Even John Cena gets cheered at houseshows, and heels actually get booed.

Ya. House shows almost always draw people just there for shits and giggles and to have fun with the show. Everybody knows it isn't going to get covered or have any storyline involvement, so who cares? Cheer faces, boo heels.. yee haw.

you guys are hilarious and pathetic.. anything that doesn't fit your narrative you find an excuse for it..

Roman is nowhere close to being as bad, as talentless, as unover, as unready [whatever the hell that's supposed to mean anyway] as the IWC is trying to make it seem..
I don't know what's going to happen to Reigns, but he also got booed hard in Hartford, nevermind the Rumble in Philly. Not a great sign. Besides, Cena gets cheered at house shows at MSG, for God's sake. That was as recent as the day after Christmas a couple of months ago. And that was NYC, smark capital of the world. House shows are mostly attended by kids, for some reason. I'm not saying Reigns is going to get booed at every Raw and Smackdown, or anything like that. Just saying that house shows are weird like that.

But I was told Roman isn't over and the world is ending because he got booed by smarks :maury
He didn't get booed, he got brutalized. Biggest moment of his career and not even the Rock could stop him getting shit on by an entire arena full of "smarks." That's one thing Reigns marks don't understand. Reigns already failed. No matter how many accolades WWE force on him, it's all bullshit and built on nothing. His push is as hollow and superficial as his fan support. So enjoy, I guess.

Let's not forget Reigns was a member of Edmontons beloved CFL football team Edmonton Eskimos. If any crowd would have his back, it would be Edmonton. Trust me Toronto or Montreal would not receive roman reigns like that, even for a house how.

Yeah, an entire arena full of smarks who chanted Cesaro. It's funny how you ignore several months of Reigns getting his name chanted while in the mid card against Orton in his boring stages, fighting Kane every week, then spending a month fighting Big Show. Lol @ "superficial fan support". I guess robots are buying his T Shirts and making him the #2 merch seller. The desperation coming from you is all kinds of pathetic. "WAAA, they didn't boo Reigns." You're in a minority, get over it.

Booed by casuals on Smackdown, too. And he spat in his hair like a retard, so: :p

But why so defensive? It's okay if you like Reigns, but facts are facts. They don't go away because you like him. Number 2 merch seller? Sure, and why is that? Da Look. His fans don't admire him for his talent, his passion, or his work ethic. They like him because he's pretty and because of his over-protective booking. Hence; superficial support. I wouldn't call them robots, but at the very least I'd say the majority are either dumb as fuck fangirls or have been duped by the booking.

But anyway, I don't want to argue. Your post got under my skin because it was very gloating, but I should've ignored it.

"Facts are facts", then proceeds to post an asinine opinion. More shocking developments at 10 :eyeroll. You obviously DON'T know why millions of fans like him, so you can just stop right there before you embarrass yourself any further.
