The following are results from the WWE live event in Cape Town, South Africa. The event was held on Tuesday, July 30th.
-R-Truth defeated Fandango in a decent opening match.
-AJ Lee defeated Kaitlyn in a typical Divas match. Nothing out of the ordinary here. Pretty much what you would expect.
-Justin Gabriel defeated Titus O’Neil from the Prime Time Players with the 450 Splash. This one went over ten minutes and was a simple, but fun match for the live crowd. There were a lot of false-finishes leading up to Gabriel’s 450 Splash, so the crowd was hot for the finish.

-Alberto Del Rio defeated Dolph Ziggler in a No-Disqualification Match to retain the World Heavyweight Championship. Another lengthy match, little over 15 minutes, but the crowd was into every bit of it. Del Rio picked up the win after he hit Ziggler with a sudden kick to the head. Fans were allowed to vote on the stipulation here, and they went with No-DQ, so kendo sticks and tables were used during the bout. After the match, Ziggler attacked Del Rio with a chair.
-WWE will be holding another event at the Grand Arena in Cape Town, South Africa during the current tour.
-The Grand Arena only holds approximately 5,000 people. WWE was doing special deals on tickets to help fill the building, and there were still many empty seats.
