"Yes, sir, we promised you a great main event…"
The opening theme hits and HERE WE GO!
We're back to the regular two hours of shows here as it's the week between the King of the Ring and the Slammys. The main thing tonight is the explanation from Cole as to why he cost King the WWE Title last week which should be most interesting. Let's get to it.
We open with a highlight package of the TLC match from last week where Cole flat out cost Lawler the title. Punk and Lawler are on commentary without Cole. Punk praises Lawler for trying last week and here's Cole.
Cole says that he's been Miz's biggest supporter for years and that when Miz won the title it was like his own son won it. He apologizes profusely for what happened and Lawler says he's going to come in there and finish what he started last week.
Cole then blames Jerry, saying that Lawler had to have the spotlight one more time and that he was trying to be the King again. According to Cole, Lawler should apologize to him.
We get an E-Mail and since Cole is in the ring, Punk answers it. He says he's nervous because he's always wanted to do this. The GM has issued a cease and desist order and if it's violated them someone will be terminated. Lawler must shake Cole's hand.
Very slowly Jerry gets in and does shake his hand but says there's someone that has something for Cole. Cue Orton's music to a solid pop. Orton says he has a message for Miz. He doesn't blame him for cashing in and would have done the same thing.
Orton says he and the Miz are a lot alike but Orton has proven that he can back up what he says in the ring. He's going to take back the championship tonight. I knew I should have gone to this show!
Here are Miz and Riley. Miz says Orton used to be original but now he's just stale. They were in the same MITB match in the summer and now he's world champion while Orton is nothing. Since he defended last week he doesn't have to do so again until the TLC PPV against Orton.
Orton wants to know where the seven guys are to beat up Orton. Riley isn't even one guy apparently. Alex challenges Orton to a match later which is accepted. Miz gets to pick the match type for the PPV which he hasn't decided on yet. Orton says that even on one knee there's something he can do, and with that he RKO's Cole to send us to commercial.
Back from a break and Josh Matthews is now on commentary.
Ted DiBiase/Maryse vs. Daniel Bryan/Brie Bella
Before the match we see Daniel Bryan coming out of a locker room with Brie Bella. Nikki comes up and seems rather jealous. I'm liking where this is going. The guys start us off and here comes Nikki. The Bellas are looking very good tonight in red. Punk says he's seeing double. There's a Foreigner song in there somewhere.
Bryan beats on Ted for a few seconds before the girls come in. Maryse gets beaten on for a bit. Ted comes in for the save and it's a big brawl a minute and a half in. There's the Twin Magic and Nikki rolls up Maryse for the pin at 2:12.
Daniel Bryan/Brie Bella b. Ted DiBiase/Maryse – Rollup to Maryse @ 2:12
Rating: N/A. Way too short to mean anything at all as this was just a backdrop to set up the post match angle. Nothing special but the girls looked good so there's always that.
