I missed the first 3 minutes. Way to go WWE on advertising that the pre-show started at 7PM.
They talked about the Ambrose/RVD match on the preshow.
They then went into a video package on Brock/Punk. Paul Heyman was then interviewed.
BREAKING NEWS - CM Punk vs Brock Lesnar is now No Disqualification from Paul Heyman. He confirmed it during this interview.
They showed a video on Total Divas. Problem since that is on at the same time as SS for free.

We then got into the mixed tag.
They ran a video on the main event.
Pre-Show Match - United States Title - Dean Ambrose vs Rob Van Dam
The Ring of Fire match was being set up.
Miz welcomed us to the show.
Ring of Fire Match - Kane vs Bray Wyatt
They showed the Heyman interview from earlier where he made Punk/Brock No DQ.
Cody Rhodes vs Damien Sandow
ADR vs Christian is up next.
World Heavyweight Championship - Alberto Del Rio vs Christian
4 matches left and 2 hours left. Either some things are going super long or we are getting an extra match. No idea what happened to Fandango earlier.
They showed a clip of Maria Menounos helping her team get a win at Axxess. She looked hot and talked for a second, before Fandango's music hit and he did the dance.
Natalya vs Brie Bella
|I assure you, this was taken in the inside of the Staples Center and not on the corner near the Staples Center.|
|"Feed me more-on." - Ryback|
Brock vs Punk next. Something is up here. Either the mixed tag is getting cut or Punk's losing here.
No Disqualification - The Best vs The Beast - CM Punk vs Brock Lesnar
Some fan won a contest and got to sit near the ring.
Dolph Ziggler and Kaitlyn vs AJ Lee and Big E Langston
Cena vs DB up next with 41 minutes until 11PM.
ProWresBlog Championship and WWE Championship - Special Referee: Triple H - John Cena vs Daniel Bryan
John Cena is the ProWresBlog champion having defeated The Rock at Wrestlemania. On a side note, should Randy Orton cash in on someone and win tonight, he will not be the ProWresBlog champion.

Triple H turned heel and pedigreed Daniel Bryan. Randy Orton cashes in Money in the Bank! Randy Orton wins the WWE championship.
I didn't really care for the turn. Orton and Triple H do not interest me and it kind of just reminded all of us that no matter how much we like Daniel Bryan, WWE says he isn't what they want. The ending didn't make a ton of sense and Orton cashing in was meh.
Overall thoughts: Great show with many good matches. Check this out, especially Brock vs Punk! I didn't like the ending but the matches were top notch here.
