Full Report by PWTorch and Zim

Rough crowd guess at 5,000. Pretty hot all night with lots of kids, as most house shows are.

The opening segment had A.J. and C.M. Punk discussing the main event and Cena's injury. Punk referred to A.J. as Allen Jones. Looking around, I'd say maybe five other people in the arena got the reference to A.J. Styles. A.J. announced Big Show as Cena's replacement and people cheered like his heel turn never happened.

(1) Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara beat Tensai & IC champion The Miz after a double 619 to both heels and a falling star by Cara on Tensai.

Miz complained that tag partners always drag him down, so he challenged Rey one-on-one. Rey came down and after a short back and forth, the match was on.

(2) Rey Mysterio beat The Miz quickly with a 619.

(3) Michael McGillicutty beat Dean Ambrose with the McGullicutter.

(4) U.S. champion Antonio Cesaro beat Zack Ryder to retain the U.S. Title. Cesaro won with the Neutralizer. After the match, he went for a second one, but Ryder recovered and hit the Rough Ryder.

(5) Damien Sandow beat Justin Gabriel. Better than usual reaction for Sandow given we're in Worcester, his hometown.

Aksana was announced as the special referee for the next match.

(6) Divas champion Eve beat Layla to retain the Divas Title. Eve won with her Heartbreaker finisher. Aksana repeatedly restrained Layla physically during the match, so Layla hit a KO kick on her after the match.

(7) Brodus Clay squashed Heath Slater in a minute. Brodus brought kids in the ring afterwards, as usual

Big Show acted like he never turned heel, and was all-smiles. He looked to have dropped a few pounds as well. Punk and Paul Heyman had a blast with each other tonight, and were so entertaining. A.J. then came out and announced that via fan's choice, the main event was now a lumberjack match.

(8) Big Show beat WWE champion C.M. Punk via DQ in a lumberjack match to retain the WWE Title. Punk tried escaping every chance he had and tried climbing a lighting rig, too. Funny. In the end, the lumberjacks broke out into a brawl and Punk got DQ'd by hitting Show with the belt. He continued the beat down until Mysterio made the save. However, Punk got the upper hand and laid Mysterio out. Enter Sin Cara, who also got laid out. Punk celebrated until Big Show recovered and hit the WMD on Punk to send the crowd home happy.

Afterward, Paul E. took a mic and proclaimed Punk still champion and still best in the world as we were leaving. Overall, a hot crowd and a fun night. Also cool to see a different house show line-up before I memorized it by reading other reports.
