* Brodus Clay (w/ Cameron and Naomi) defeated Corey Grave. Good opening match to get the crowd into it. Clay won with the splash.
* Layla defeated Aksana. Really nice divas match. Aksana actually did a really good job drawing heat, including faking a fan out on a high five. Layla made up for it though by giving the fan a hug followed by a kiss on the cheek. Im really impressed by Layla. She looked very good here.
* Fandango defeated Yoshi Tatsu. This was an ok match, but the crowd wasn't into it at first. They finally got behind Tatsu, but Fandango got the win.
* Kofi Kingston defeated Damien Sandow. Sandow is so good at drawing heat without having to say a word now. The crowd was so ready to boo his promo, that he couldn't even speak. Kingston won with the trouble in paradise.
* Randy Orton defeated Cody Rhodes. Orton got the pop of the night, at least up to this point. This was the match of the night to me. Finish saw Orton countered the Beautiful Disaster with an RKO. Looked awesome in person!
* Sin Cara and The Great Khali (w/ Natalya and Hornswoggle) defeated Primo and Epico(w/ Rosa Mendes). This was obviously more of a comedy match that saw Primo and Epico try to avoid getting in the ring with Khali. Finish saw Natalya pull Rosa off the apron, Hornswoggle land a tadpole splash, and Sin Cara get the pinfall.
* Sheamus defeated IC Champ Wade Barrett in a non title match. Crowd was way into Sheamus. He wins following the Brogue Kick.
* Alberto Del Rio (w/ Ricardo Rodriguez) defeated Big Show in a No DQ match. This was a fan's choice match, that saw the use of Kendo sticks, chairs, and tables. Crowd favored Del Rio, although Show is popular here considering he grew up about 15 minutes away in Aiken, SC (my hometown). After the match, Del Rio led a Si chant and had Rodriguez announce him as the winner.
Overall, a very entertaining show!
1) Randy Orton
1) Damien Sandow
