WWE results from Melbourne house show (Aug. 11, 2016): Seth Rollins & Chris Jericho are the biggest wankers in Australia

Peter Frances on Twitter

The Rod Laver Arena in Australia’s second biggest city.

What happened?

- Apollo Crews def. Sheamus
- Braun Strowman def. Jey Uso
- Rusev def. Titus O’Neil to retain the United States championship
- The New Day def. The Club to retain their tag team championship
- Roman Reigns & Finn Bálor def. Chris Jericho & Seth Rollins
- Sasha Banks def. Charlotte to retain the Women’s title
- Sami Zayn def. Kevin Owens
- John Cena def. AJ Styles

What caught our eye?

Big E is not only the master of impromptu selfies:

He also popped the crowd with an appearance to help his boys retain against The Club. Maybe he’s not going solo? Maybe he’s over that ringpostitis?

I’m not sure what else there is to say...

Okay, okay... Finn is over, Roman’s polarizing, and that made it awkward when a Spear on Jericho won it right after a Coup de Grâce on Rollins.

The world’s longest running hockey fight comes to another continent:

And Owens gonna Owens:

These two are over like Brother Nero:

I won’t pretend to understand the geographies and rivalries of Australian Rules Football, but apparently the crowd wasn’t pumped to see North Melbourne’s Brent Harvey as guest timekeeper:

But, uh, hi Josephine (also, damn).

What’s next?

Adelaide in South Australia
