The third WWE pay-per-view of the WWE Network era continues the streak of top-notch pay-per-view matches in 2014. January saw Wyatt-Bryan, February saw Shield-Wyatts, Wyatt-Cena & the Bryan saga at Mania, and May had the Shield-Evolution war. Tonight we witnessed another night of fun, fun, WWE action and two more matches to add to that list.
But that’s just my opinion. What did you think? Check out the results with my reactions and give me a shout in the comments. Also check out Martel’s Shield piece from this morning.
The Shield swept Evolution 3-0 in the No Holds Barred Elimination Match.
Very good. A crazy, chaotic brawl. Keep the Shield together forever! The story of the match was Evolution slowly taking over the match and beating the living hell out of the Shield in order to isolate Roman Reigns, but ultimately their hubris backfired resulting in a clean sweep for the Shield. Evolution put over the Shield HUGE. Take that Triple H haters.
After a crazy brawl to open the match, things settled down for a portion only to break wide open once more for the home stretch. There were no eliminations until roughly 25 minutes into the 30 minute match and how those eliminations came about was fantastic. Late in the match after hitting Reigns with a triple powerbomb, Evolution then took out Rollins & Ambrose in the entry way. With his partners out, HHH, Batista, & Orton proceeded to pull Reigns inside and go all Sandman on his back (sans flack jacket) with Kendo sticks.
When all seemed lost, the comeback began. As they continued the punishment in the aisle, SETH ROLLINS FROM THE TITANTRON! Rollins’ jump from the screen turned the tide with all 6 men crawling back to the ring. One by one the Hounds of Justice took out their opponents. A spear taking out Batista. Dirty Deeds takes out Orton. Flying Knee and a spear eliminates Triple H. Clean F’N Sweep. Amazing.
