Live Event Review: WWE - DX Invasion Tour - November 2009

WWE DX INVASION TOUR 2009
Echo Arena, Liverpool
Sunday November 7th, 2009





*An archived report I originally wrote and published in November 2009.*

As part of their current tour around the United Kingdom, the superstars of World Wrestling Entertainment's Raw brand made their way to Liverpool in early November. 

Performing in front of an enthusiastic crowd, WWE Champion John Cena teamed up with DX (Shawn Michaels and Triple H) to defeat Legacy (Randy Orton, Cody Rhodes & Ted Dibiase) in an exciting main event. During the match, the Legacy boys had their backsides exposed by the crowd favourites, but that was nothing compared to the bare-faced cheek of the ever-popular Hornswoggle, who got involved in proceedings for no real reason. 

Champion Cena picked up the victory for his team by pinning Cody Rhodes.

Elsewhere on the card, United States Champion The Miz successfully defended his title in an entertaining bout with MVP. The cocky champion was loathed by the Liverpool crowd, who cheered on MVP in the hopes that the challenger could dethrone Miz, but it wasn't to be on this night.

MVP's partner, Mark Henry, fared a little better, picking up a win via disqualification when his opponent, Chris Jericho, nailed him with a chair to end a match which was much better than anticipated.

Santino Marella put in an appearance, informing the Liverpool crowd that he had created his own unique form of martial arts; Marella's Martial Arts...or MMA for short! Luckily for the hapless Itallian, his skills, martial arts or otherwise, served him well in a victory over Chavo Guerrero.

Other matches, and full results from the show as follows:

  • Kofi Kingston beat Chris Masters
  • The Hurricane beat Paul Burchill
  • Sheamus beat Primo
  • United States Champion The Miz beat MVP
  • Santino Marella beat Chavo Guerrero
  • WWE Divas Champion & Kelly Kelly beat. Alicia Fox & Jillian Hall
  • Mark Henry beat. Unified Tag Team Champion Chris Jericho via DQ.
  • WWE Champion John Cena, Shawn Michaels & Triple H beat Randy Orton, Cody Rhodes & Ted Dibiase

The 2009 WWE DX Invasion Tour continues through early November, highlighted by a live episode of the company's flagship television show, Raw, on Monday November 8th. If you missed out on this tour, then fear not, the company have recently announced plans to return to these shores in April for the Wrestlemania Revenge Tour 2010.
