WWE House Show Results 06.02.12 – Augusta, Georgia
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 06.03.2012
attended the Smackdown house show Saturday night in Augusta, Georgia. I arrived at the arena several hours early in hopes of meeting a few of the wrestlers. The first I saw arrive was Ryback. He basically nodded to the crowd and walked in. Next up was Kaitlyn and A.J. They didn’t acknowledge us and walked straight in as well. I was just about to walk in when Damien Sandow and Tyson Kidd pulled up. Sandow walked in, but Kidd walked up and was very fan-friendly. He signed autographs and took pictures with anyone who wanted one. Very Cool. Now onto the show. Matt Striker came out and served as ring announcer for the evening.
(8) World Hvt. champion Sheamus defeated Alberto Del Rio (w/Ricardo Rodriguez) to retain the World Heavyweight Title. Great match, and Rodriguez did a great job interacting with the crowd. Sheamus landed the Brogue kick for the win. After the match, Sheamus posed and shook hands with the crowd.
Overall, it was a really good show. The arena was not quite half-full, which was disappointing, but they were very vocal, and into every match. The set-up was also much more elaborate than any other house show I have been to, including two big screens to play videos before the show, play entrances, and even included a backstage promo from Del Rio and Rodriguez.
