WWE House Show Results (10/13): Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
The following are results from the WWE live event in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The event was held on Sunday, October 13, 2013.
-R-Truth & Tons Of Funk def. 3MB. The show opened with R-Truth coming out and hyping up the crowd. He then called for some backup, which led to Brodus Clay and Tensai coming out. This was a fun comedy match, with the babyfaces going over after R-Truth hit his finisher for the 1-2-3.
-Damien Sandow def. Tyson Kidd. Sandow came to the ring and cut a promo talking about how he won the Money In The Bank briefcase in Philly. He claimed to be the uncrowned champion and then issued an open challenge. That led to Kidd coming out to accept. The match was back-and-forth until Sandow won via pinfall.
-Natalya & Naomi def. Nikki Bella & Eva Marie. The fans got to vote for the stipulation and chose a Dance Off. As Natalya and Naomi were dancing, they were attacked by Marie and Bella, which led to the match. In the end, Natalya picked up the win for her team by applying the Sharpshooter.
-The Great Khali def. Alberto Del Rio via Disqualification. Due to the DQ, Del Rio retained his World Heavyweight Championship. The DQ came when Del Rio used a steel chair on Khali. After the match, Sandow nearly cashed in his Money In The Bank briefcase, but was beat up by Khali instead.
–Intermission– (Bob Backlund was present and signing autographs and taking pictures with fans during intermission, all the while staying in character.)
-Zack Ryder def. Big E. Langston. Decent pop for the finish, as nobody seemed to see it coming. Langston dominated nearly the entire match but was rolled up by Ryder out of nowhere for the clean pinfall victory.
-Luke Harper & Erick Rowan def. The Prime Time Players. Bray Wyatt, as noted, suffered a calf injury during Saturday’s live event in Providence. Whether or not they altered this match because of that is unknown, but he did come to the ring with his Wyatt Family. He sat in the aisle in his rocking chair as Harper and Rowan defeated Darren Young and Titus O’Neil.
-CM Punk def. Curtis Axel & Paul Heyman in a Handicap Match. Before the match, Heyman cut a promo telling fans they would get to witness history as he was teaming up with Axel for a no-DQ Handicap Match. Punk also cut a promo talking a bit about the history of his feud with Heyman. The finish came when Punk hit Heyman with a kendo stick and then hit Axel with his GTS for the pin.
