WWE 9/27 Erie, PA, house show results: Roman Reigns & Dean Ambrose vs. Wyatts
Submitted by Shooterchris
– Neville beat Stardust in 9:30 with the Red Arrow.
– Jack Swagger made the Miz tap out to the ankle lock in 9 minutes
– Lucha Dragons over the Ascension in 7:45. Kids were into the Dragons. Kalisto’s mask actually came off when he did a splash onto the Ascension but luckily he landed face down and was able to put the mask back on within a few seconds.
– Adam Rose came out with somewhat of a new gimmick. He wore black dress pants and blue dress shirt with white glasses. He told all the fans they are looser and should leave. This went on for about 3 minutes until Jimmy Uso superkicked Rose to start and end the match in 5 seconds.
– Street fight: Randy Orton beat Sheamus in 20 minutes with the RKO. Good psychology by Orton leading to the RKO
– Natalia beat Naomi in 5:30
– Dolph Ziggler over Rusev in 17 minutes. Rusev showed real good intensity and Ziggler is always good.
– Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose beat Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman. Good crowd reaction throughout the match. Strowman looked real green but he is new. The other 3 looked great.
– 20 minutes before the show started, they had the fans vote on what match they want to see on the monitor above the ring. The choices were all from past Summerslams. The choices were Undertaker vs Shawn Michaels, Undertaker vs Mick Foley or Undertaker vs Edge. Undertaker vs Edge won.
– Attendance was way down from the last show here. One side of ringside seats was only about 10% full. Overall floor seats were only about 30 percent full. Seems like the price of those tickets went way up since the last show here. Overall, I’m estimating the crowd at only 2,500.

Here is a quick run down of the live event in Erie tonight.
Arrived at the end of the first match which had Neville going over Stardust. What I saw of it was awesome. Really had the crowd going.
Swagger over The Miz in what was easily the laziest match of the night. My wife has never been to a live event and rarely watches the product but she even commented on how slow they were and how little they appeared to be trying.
Lucha Dragons get the win against The Ascension. Match was entertaining and got the crowd rolling after the Miz/Swagger snooze fest.
Jimmy Uso goes over Adam Rose with a super kick after Rose antagonizes the crowd. I guess Rose was trying out a new gimmick which I had not seen. He was wearing a collared shirt tucked in to slacks with thick rimmed glasses. His promo probably lasted 5 minutes at the very least. Nothing remarkable. Seems like he is on his way out the door and they are just throwing him out there to fill time. As soon as he finished talking Uso delivered the kick and it was over in less than 10 seconds.
Last bout before intermission was Orton and Sheamus in a street fight. Match went about 15 minutes I am guessing with Orton going over with an RKO. Good hard fight that was pretty physical. Sheamus got thrown through a table leaning against the ring post which got a nice pop.
Ziggler over Rusev in a nice hard fought bout. Ziggler nails the Zig-Zag shortly after Summer Rae smacks him with her shoe and she is sent back to the locker room. No flirting between the two.
Second to last match is Natty and Naomi with Natty getting the sub via sharp shooter. My wife is really into the Divas since we began watching Total Divas together. She enjoyed the match but was sad it was the only divas bout on the card.
Main Event was Dean and Roman vs. Bray and Braun. Crowd popped big for Ambrose and Reigns. Only saw half the match before leaving. We took my 10 month old and he had about had it so we got while the getting was good.
