WWE Madison Square Garden "Lesnar vs. Big Show"
Saturday, October 3, 2015
From Madison Square Garden in New York City
Report by Sean Hopkins of WrestlingNewsWorld.com
The show opens with a video package hyping tonight's live event, featuring the return of Brock Lesnar to MSG to face off against the Big Show. There's also a good bit of time spent on Cena vs. Rollins for the United States Championship inside a steel cage.
There's no pyro, and (I believe) Byron Saxton welcomes us to the show. Sheamus' music hits, and the Irishman makes his way out to the ring to a pretty decent reaction from the crowd. Sheamus is carrying his Money in the Bank briefcase as he makes his way down the aisle.
There's a different announce team than normal as Rich Brennan is joined by Byron Saxton and JBL. Rusev is the next man to make his way out, of course accompanied by Summer Rae.
Dolph Ziggler is the first man out for his team, and the Show-off gets a pretty great pop from the New York fans.
Randy Orton is the final man out for this match, and the Viper also gets a great reaction. Hopefully these fans continue to stay this hot all night.
Tag Team Match
Rusev and Sheamus vs. Randy Orton and Dolph Ziggler
The bell rings no one gets out of the ring immediately as both teams stare each other down. It looks like Sheamus and Orton will kick things off.

Ziggler hits Sheamus with a superkick and Orton follows with the RKO. Orton pins Sheamus for three.
Winners: Dolph Ziggler and Randy Orton
After the match, Rusev grabs a mic and tells Sheamus he's a stupid non-American. He ruined this whole match. He could have beaten them himself. Sheamus is useless, even more than Lana. Rusev tells Sheamus to go back, pack his suitcase and leave. Sheamus starts to exit the ring, but makes his way back in when Rusev turns his back. Rusev starts to run down Lana, but Sheamus hits him with a brogue kick first. Sheamus asks for his briefcase, then grabs the mic. Sheamus tells Rusev to kiss his arse.
The announcers send it to a video package to recap the 'performance review' segment from Raw featuring Seth Rollins and Kane.
Renee Young is standing backstage with Kane, in non-demon mode. She asks how Kane's leg is. Kane says his leg feels good. It's hard to get around on crutches, but he looks at challenges like this as an opportunity for personal growth. He came here tonight for one reason only, Seth Rollins, he's got an opportunity to win the US Championship back tonight against John Cena, and he wouldn't miss the opportunity to see it. He said Rollins was nervous when he saw Kane earlier, but if Kane sees the demon lurking anywhere around MSG, he'll send him packing.
Back in the arena, Stardust makes his way out to a bit of a lackluster reaction from the MSG crowd.
Neville is the next man to make his way out, and he too gets a pretty subdued reaction from the fans, but it's a bit louder than Stardust's.
Stardust vs. Neville
The bell rings and both men circle each other for a bit before locking up. Stardust goes right for a headlock, but Neville pushes him away. Stardust knocks Neville to the mat, does a cartwheel, and dances for the crowd. Stardust and Neville trade position for a bit before Stardust knocks Neville back down to the mat.

Neville stands and is immediately dropped with a huge clothesline. Stardust goes for the pin but only gets two.

Stardust buries his knee in Neville's back and goes right into another rear chinlock. Neville fights up once more and breaks the hold, but eats a flying forearm to the face. Stardust pulls Neville to his feet, and Neville begins fighting back, stunning Stardust with a chinbreaker.

Neville immediately puts his cape back on to celebrate his victory.
Backstage, Renee Young is standing alongside Paul Heyman. Heyman says that's not how she does it. Heyman introduces himself and says on behalf of all of the homegrown New Yorkers, he wants to welcome everyone to the world's most famous arena, Madison Square Garden. Heyman says if you can catch your breath here, you really don't belong because this place is special. Heyman is surprised that Big Show has the guts to walk into the Garden like the Boston Celtics. Except his home team won't be on defense tonight, his home team, the Beast, will be on offense. Because tonight, live at MSG on the WWE Network, it's city hall for Suplex City. Big Show has had a wonderful time leading up to this match, but tonight it's eat, sleep, conquer, repeat thanks to Brock Lesnar.
We get a recap of the Divas action on Monday Night Raw that saw Paige attacking Natalya and betraying Charlotte and Becky.
Team Bella make their way out to the ring for the next match, and they get a bit of a reaction out of the crowd, which actually seems to be a bigger reaction than either Neville or Stardust got in the previous match.
Paige is out next, to a little bit of heat. Becky Lynch is out next to a pretty good pop from the fans, and she's followed by the Diva's Champion, Charlotte, who gets her fair share of 'woos' from the crowd.

October 3rd 1990 in Alberta, Canada, the moose hall in front of 50 people, against Lance Storm (who's in the crowd tonight), they did a 10-minute broadway (draw), and now he's in the most famous arena in the world, in New York City. It makes so much sense because he remembers being 3 years old and watching his dad, Ted Irving, play with the New York Rangers. Now here he is, all these years later, in front of some of his oldest friends in the business. Jericho points out some of his other wrestler friends sitting in the crowd, and says the fans are some of the greatest in the world. Big Y2J chants from the crowd.

Big E says this is the final night of the Dudley Boyz goodbye forever tour. Kofi says since their return, you've seen all their greatest hits; Bubba shoving D-von for no reason, but you've also seen random television references from the 90's in 'whazzzzup'. Big E says these 9-time Champions, these legends have shown a different side. A non-sensical side like wearing glasses with no lenses. Woods says they've also shown a despicable side. Big E says look at Woods, a quiet, humble, introverted man. Woods says they put him through a table! Kofi says for shame, not only did they bring pain and suffering onto this perfect human being, they also brought pain and suffering onto a perfectly crafted table. Big E and Woods repeatedly shout 'shame'. Woods says tonight New Day saves the tables! They try to get a 'save the tables' chant going, but are interrupted by the Dudley's music.
