    Shocking Finish to Main Event Match in British Columbia

    Post by RFSKannon on Sun Aug 10, 2014 12:42 pm

    This is from the PWInsider fan report that attended the show.

    "Randy Orton vs Dolph Ziggler
    Good, long, competitive match. The story is that Randy is trying to get the RKO on Ziggler, but Dolph manages to counter. Finally, out of nowhere, Randy hits the RKO...and Dolph...KICKS OUT AT 2! Yes. Dolph Ziggler kicked out of an RKO. The crowd goes wild. Dolph hits the Zig Zag and pins Orton clean, 1-2-3. Now the crowd REALLY goes wild because it was so not the finish that was expected. Now, if only Ziggler could get those kinds of matches on TV... Really cool surprise finish though to wrap up the show."


    *****

    I know house shows don't really count and will likely never be mentioned on tv, but holy shit...

    Did Orton forget to pick up Ziggler at the airport, and this was how Randy made it up to him?

    Probably punishment for making fat jokes about that girl on Twitter and then dismissing Twitter Q&A's as being "for guys like Ryder & Ziggler."

    Dave explains:

    --For those wondering about the Dolph Ziggler win over Randy Orton last night in Abbotsford, BC, which may happen in Yakima, the reason is that it was advertised as Orton vs. Roman Reigns, and Reigns was in Australia instead. The rule of thumb is to put the face over in the main event anyway, but when it's a sub for the main attraction face on the show, the rule is even stronger. It's not a sign anybody is mad at Randy Orton or he's being punished.


    Also, it's crazy to me how over Dolph still is even after being a jobber for years.

    This is kinda cool, if nothing else a neat story that provides some insight into off the charts booking.

    I don't get the Dolph love. I like him just fine. I recognize he is very talented, but people who write him in as the next Ric Flair or sure fire top star bewilder me.

    I don't get it either. He's a very good athlete and sells for others like nobody else. But he hasn't really established what exactly his persona is and his matches and spots tend to feel repetitive.

    Good for him though to be getting these kind of wins and opportunities every now and then though.
