World Wrestling Entertainment made their return to West Virginia this past Father’s Day for WWE Supershow, featuring among other bouts a Father’s Day street fight between Rey Mysterio and his son Dominik.

The show kicked off with Bobby Lashley versus Karrion Cross accompanied by Scarlett, who attempted to distract Lashley and secure the win for Cross. Unfortunately, for Scarlett however, Lashley‘s ring awareness kept him alert, nearly missing a cheap shot from Cross who almost delivered a punch to his valet. Lashley took this opportunity to perform a power slam on Cross and win the match.

There were a few surprises along the way for those in attendance, such as an unannounced appearance from world renowned tag team the Usos. Despite having the advantage of surprise though the Usos came up short against undisputed tag team champions, Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens.

AEW cofounder Cody Rhodes was added to the card a week before the show, even gifting, a young fan free tickets to the Charleston event, where they sat front row to witness Cody’s victory over judgment day leader, Finn Balor.

As mentioned earlier, Rey and Dominik Mysterio faced one another in a Father’s Day street fight with Dominik losing the match (and his dignity) by crashing through a wooden table. Mostly one-sided, the fight was still entertaining to watch as Dominik is one of WWE‘s top villains, despite having only started his wrestling career three years ago. The Charleston crowd loved jeering Dominik, and seeing him lose to his father on Father’s Day made the experience all the more satisfying.

The main event was Damian Priest versus World Heavyweight Champion Seth “Freakin’” Rollins, who defended his belt in under 20 minutes, picking up the victory.

Upon entering the building, Rollins led the entire Colosseum in the singing of his theme song — which lasted for two extra minutes after the music had stopped, the champion basking in adulation.

Even after the event had finished, Seth Rollins stayed to sign autographs for everyone who remained in the building after the final bell; a true testament to the good nature for which WWE superstars are known.

Overall, the event was solid, and everybody enjoyed themselves…though it would be great to see a women’s match next time.
