WWE Knoxville, TN, live results: Dean Ambrose vs. Chris Jericho

Submitted by Chris Flowers from the Thompson-Boling Arena

– Golden Truth defeated Breezango

Golden Truth got a decent reception, there were lots of comedy spots.

– Jack Swagger defeated Curtis Axel

Swagger got some USA chants and Axel got decent heat in a fairly boring match. Swagger won, but Axel insisted that he cheated because Swagger threw his leg into the turnbuckle. Axel asked for a new match with a random challenger.

– Kane defeated Curtis Axel

After Axel asked for a new challenger, Kane came out and gave him a chokeslam for the win. Kane got a decent pop with this being Knoxville and him being from the area.

– Enzo & Cass defeated The Dudley Boys

Enzo and Cass got some of the loudest cheers of the night. They did a way overlong comedy spot where Enzo stole D-Von’s glasses. It was finally abandoned when some booing started creeping in. Enzo and Cass won with the Rocket Launcher.

– Dolph Ziggler defeated Baron Corbin

Crowd was nearly silent during Corbin’s entrance. Ziggler got an alright reception. Corbin hit the End of Days, but Ziggler kicked out. Ziggler then won with a superkick. Ziggler praised Ambrose but said that he would win the championship at SummerSlam.

There was a mixture of cheers and boos for this, maybe a little heavier on the boos. 

– Cesaro & Neville defeated The Vaudevillains

Great match. Cesaro did his usual spots plus a weird move where he put English in a wristlock then vaulted onto his shoulders, which required English to keep his arms extended while Cesaro lifted him vertically. They botched the first try but got it on the second.

Neville hit the Red Arrow and got the pin. Seemingly half of the floor seats had Cesaro section signs. Not sure if those were just distributed by someone but there were a ton.

Cesaro got on the mic and cut a promo thanking everyone for the signs and saying that the fans may be able to change some minds if they keep supporting him. He also praised Neville for not losing a step after coming back from injury.

= Becky Lynch & WWE Women’s Champion Sasha Banks defeated Dana Brooke & Summer Rae

Becky and Sasha got plenty of cheers, though it wasn’t a particularly good match. Dana and Summer botched some tag move, but I honestly couldn’t tell what they were trying to do. Sasha won with the Banks Statement on Summer.

– Kalisto defeated Alberto Del Rio

Alright match, similar to their US title feud matches. Del Rio wasn’t especially heelish, as he frequently tried to get cheers. Kalisto won with a roll-up.

– WWE World Heavyweight Champion Dean Ambrose defeated Chris Jericho

Jericho cut an awesome heel promo disparaging Knoxville and the time he spent here early in his career. By far the loudest booing of the night. Ambrose got a big pop, around the level of Enzo and Cass.

They smacked each other around with a kendo stick and a chair before Ambrose put Jericho through a table in the corner, then hit him with Dirty Deeds for the win.
