Live Report From the WWE Sioux Falls House Show 12/20/14

The following was submitted by poster mdh1985:






Dolph vs Harper- sluggish start but over time got some wheels **1/2 - Dolph wins

Cesaro, Titus, Tyson, and Hornswaggle vs El Matadors, Sin Cara, and the other midget- some truly nice stuff unfortunately overshadowed by the comedy act **3/4-
The faces win

Adrian Neville vs Tyler Breeze- Good stuff here, seeing Nevilles finish live is pretty cool **3/4 Neville wins

Miz and Mizdow vs New Day- a few nice spots and some creative comedy with the stunt double thing **
New Day wins

Naomi and Emma vs. Sasha and Cameron- Emma is pretty good looking in person 1/2* Emma and Cameron win

Rusev vs Swagger- * 1/2 Rusev crush

Reigns vs Kane with Flair as ref- Long match, I'm guessing they are doing that to get Reigns comfortable having full matches as a solo star. Nice ending with Flair getting involved - *3/4 Reigns wins

Overall an entertaining show

  1. That is truly a terrible card.

  2. Wasn't this supposed to the show with Cesaro-Ziggler with Flair as a guest referee? If so, that sucks that didn't happen.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Sucks that they evidently changed Flair from the Ziggler-Cesaro match (which didn't happen - card subject to change!) to Reigns-Kane. As cult says, this card looks god awful.

    ReplyDelete
  4. It's a D level card at best. No wonder business is so bad.

    ReplyDelete
  5. The Cena shows must have him against Rollins and Bray/Ambrose plus the Usos, Bellas, AJ, and uh I cant even remember anyone else.

    ReplyDelete
  6. They still run split house shows? Shocking in a way because they really don't have the star power to pull that off (as this show proves).

    ReplyDelete
  7. Who rates matches at house shows?

    ReplyDelete
  8. CHRIST that is a bad card. Who would pay money for that?

    ReplyDelete
  9. I guess it probably wasn't the best show but it was nice having long match after long match and not having to listen to the announcers made it more tolerable along with the hot emo chick sitting by that looked like Zooey Deschanel that cheered all the heels.

  10. People from the Dakotas

  11. This card looks awful and the review seems like it's from a total mark. That card seems like zero fun. Terrible.

    ReplyDelete
  12. You know, the matches on this card remind me of the crap the WWE used to throw on those Supertapes back in the 1980s/1990s.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Sort of sad/fitting that Cesaro is wrestling with midgets to close out 2014.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I think the A show was in Winnipeg tonight with Ambrose, Bray, and Rollins

    ReplyDelete
  15. I really would've liked to see the attendance for this show. WWE has lost their mind if they think Roman Reigns is enough of a draw on his own to pull a big gate versus those 3 other guys (and Cena).

    ReplyDelete
  16. If that was entertaining I would hate to see what a bad show is like.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Guys usually try hard at house shows.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Could be worse. Main event could've been Big Show-Kane!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Surprised El Torito didn't pin him.

    ReplyDelete
  20. That card was just trying hard to keep people awake. Terrible.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I wish they would throw them on the Network because there was some hidden gems there. Steiners/Harts whadddup!

    ReplyDelete
  22. El Torito did get the pin though....sigh

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm surprised El Torito didn't win Comeback of the Year at the Slammy's after recovering from that dastardly amputation of his tail! How the poor thing walked again is a DAMN MIRACLE! A MIRACLE I say!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yeah, that's the funny thing. You usually had to wade through an hour or so of crap and then you'd hit a good Bret or HBK match.

    ReplyDelete
  25. The stuff with Cesaro and Sin Cara was really good which made it all the more disappointing

    ReplyDelete
  26. Kane: Main Eventing House shows still in 2014

    ReplyDelete
  27. Also, the skits could be funny depending on what the theme was.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yeah, Heenan carried those tapes more often than not.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Also, how in the hell is working with Kane going to make Reigns a better worker? Not that Kane doesn't know the business, but Reigns needs to be working with better opponents on the house show circuit.

    ReplyDelete
  30. But don't worry. He's not taking spots from anyone.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I have some fan cam shows from 1992 and 1993 and the Steiners would bust out some crazy shit they never did on TV.

    ReplyDelete
  32. KANE is giving an advanced lesson in being a big boting lug. I hope Reigns was taking notes.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I imagine the WWE does not run very often in the Dakotas so when they come through, you probably are excited.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Those are pretty fun, but HOW IN THE HELL did people film that stuff? Back then video cameras were not just compact things like today. They used to be pretty damn big. I just can't imagine someone smuggling one through the ticket scanner, but it was pre-9/11 I suppose.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Or Big Show vs Reigns.

    Reigns vs KANE is pretty fucking shitty.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Honestly, there were probably about 6,000 people there, but with these considerations: it was in a brand new arena and stuff like this just doesn't come around here too often, both novelty factors, as well as the fact that it's always cold as fuck up here and people will go out for anything...TNA would probably draw well here

    ReplyDelete
  37. Hey we never come here, better main event with KANE. These fucks don't know any better.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I have a bad track record the last 2 WWE shows I went to. One was Cena-Kane in December 2010 and the other was Cena-Big Show in July 2012. No wonder I haven't been to another live event.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Good point. Kentucky is sort of that way. It's like going to see the circus since the WWE only comes like 1-2 times a year.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Reigns should be working with Cesaro every night but POLITICS!

    ReplyDelete
  41. They should run that for kicks on the house shows. Those things don't count anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I did when I eas 17.

    Asshole Dave didn't post it either.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Actually I just wasn't sure if that was the thing to do or not; I don't know what you kids are into these days

    ReplyDelete
  44. I have no idea but it was cool hearing the section from where it got filmed go apeshit during the matches

    ReplyDelete

    The other house show

    ReplyDelete
  46. Even that show is kinda blah.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I haven't been to a WWE live event in over 9 years, but I've been to several at the old Sioux Falls Arena and usually had a good effort from the guys and truthfully we had better cards back then. The first one I went to had the only Triple vs. Brock Lesnar match in 2002 (before his return in 2012), the week after he left for Smackdown, but he competed since he was from South Dakota. Triple H did the clean job to an F5 :) The other two times it was a 'Battle Royal' with Batista and Randy Orton ... and a Benoit/Orton vs. Batista/Triple H match. (or at least I think that was the pairing)

    This card however, looks putrid.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'd love to see the next Wrestlemania Battle Royale with Cesaro and 19 midget wrestlers. Just watching Cesaro toss them from the ring like lawn darts would be awesome and get the WWE some of that mainstream media attention they love.

    ReplyDelete
  49. *expects a live report of a house show including details for those who did not attend the show*
    *gets a brief results rundown instead*


    Krusty:.......What the hell was that?!

    ReplyDelete
  50. The two I remember most vividly are Savage doing poolside host segments from what they purported to be his home & Sean Mooney/Lord Alfred in a shitty Star Trek skit.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Hes got some tough competition. Namely Ziggler and Ryder a couple years ago.But i im willing to place my money on Cesaro being at the all time worst at being buried. You could have easily built him up after the Andre the Giant battle royal. The crowd wanted it. He apparently had the backing of the wwe if he won the damn thing. Now he is in midget matches. If ziggler can be rehabilitated than so can Cesaro. But man, hes got his work cut out for him.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Best match was **3/4, and that was the Torito/Hornswoggle bathroom break match? That sounds horrendous. Are the star ratings out of 3 rather than 5?

  54. Even if they don't want him in the main event, they still could have kept him strong so he can act as a stepping stones for the people they do wants to push. He can put on killer matches and help them get over, but no they have to act like they are embarassed or something that he is on the roster.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Actually out of 1000. The Dakota's are weird.

    ReplyDelete
  56. having to tag team with Tyson Kidd is even more embarrassing than his yoddler gimmick.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Noticed that too. *3/4....normally, that's sub-DIVA level territory. And Flair as ref? They're really trying to win over the older fans, aren't they? Unfortunately, at this point, even if Naitch was his manager, I don't think Reigns is going to be the beloved babyface they want him to be.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Drop him down to NXT, and let him go crazy with Zayn/Owens or Itami, Hones, getting him away from the main roster is the best thing for him right now.

    ReplyDelete
  59. At least when they came to Eugene, OR, we got Punk chasing around Miz. That almost sounds like a goddamn PPV quality card compared to this.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Itami-Cesaro stiffing each other for 12-15 minutes would be great

    ReplyDelete
  61. I for one am quite happy this isn't a super smarky boo the faces cheer the heels asked Shane McMahon for out money back type of report. He said he enjoyed himself, and told what happened. Couldn't ask for more.
