WWE Battleground at First Niagara Center - PHOTOS

WWE Battleground made its debut last night at the First Niagara Center in Buffalo, NY.
The arena was packed to the brim with the area’s hardcore wrestling fans. People were lined up for hours outside the venue just dying to get in and see some of the best wrestlers in the world perform live right in front of their eyes.
Our city is known for being a city full of die-hard wrestling fans, and we showed the whole world why again last night. Many people showed up in their favorite wrestling t-shirt (even if some of those t-shirts were 20 years old) while others showed up decked out in their favorite wrestler’s outfit and face paint.
The card that the WWE put together for their debut showing of this Battleground Pay Per View was quite impressive, so therefore I felt the need to give you all the rundown of the results from last night’s action:
Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton (WWE Championship Match) went to a no-contest for the vacant WWE title
CM Punk defeated Ryback
World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio defeated Rob Van Dam (Battleground Hardcore Rules Match)
Cody Rhodes & Goldust defeated WWE Tag Team Champions Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns
Intercontinental Champion Curtis Axel defeated R-Truth
Bray Wyatt defeated Kofi Kingston
Divas Champion AJ Lee defeated Brie Bella
The Real Americans defeated Santino Marella & The Great Khali
Dolph Ziggler defeated Damien Sandow (Kickoff Match)
This event was far from disappointing and therefore it is my honor to announce that the WWE will be making a return to the First Niagara Center on Jan. 11, 2014 for another great show. If you missed out on all the action last night then make sure to get on down to the FNC box office and purchase a couple tickets to the next show.
