30/30 Atlantic City, NJ
U.S. champion Antonio Cesaro beat R-Truth to retain the U.S. Title. After the match, The Shield came out to destroy Truth. A beat down was followed by a triple powerbomb. The crowd was into it.
Time for the main event of WWE Superheroes facing The Shield. Women in the crowd (my girlfriend included) went nuts for Orton, Sheamus came out to a decent reaction, and then Cena came out and everybody lost it – best reaction I’ve seen for him at any WWE event I’ve been to in the last five years. The crowd seemed to be about 95 percent kids, so this wasn’t surprising. As someone who can’t stand Cena, even I could see why he’s pushed the way he is. His merch was on almost everyone at the show, except for adult males. The Shield came out to a good reaction, too, and Roman Reigns was wearing a long-sleeve suit. I guess he’s getting ready for next Sunday’s cold.
WWE Superheroes (John Cena & Randy Orton & Sheamus) beat The Shield via DQ in a six-man tag match. The match was pretty good, and the finish came when Seth Rollins hit Cena with a chair while he had Dean Ambrose in the STF. This lead to chaos, and then all the faces hit their finishers on each of the three Shield members to send the crowd home happy.
03/31 White Plains, NY
WWE United States champion Antonio Cesaro defeated Kofi Kingston. The Shield attacked Kofi after the match and Dean Ambrose cut a promo promising that would deliver justice at Wrestlemania.
John Cena & Randy Orton & Sheamus defeated The Shield by DQ. Standard good match you’d expect from these six. Big reactions for everyone, although Cena got the mixed chants. They went back and forth until Cena locked Seth Rollins in the STF and Roman Reigns nailed him with the chair for the DQ. The babyfaces eventually ran off the Shield, who lived to fight another day.
