Tony Chimel welcomed the crowd.
* In the first contest of the night, The Great Khali defeated Primo and Epico in a 2 on 1 handicap match. Khali danced with Natalya after the match.
The crowd is told they can vote for the main event World Title Match Stipulation. Options are a street fight or 2 out of 3 falls.
* Yoshi Tatsu defeated Michael McGillicutty. McGillicutty attacked Yoshi after the match.
* Layla beat Alicia Fox in about a minute.
* Team Hell No cut a promo on the screen toward Rhodes Scholars.
* Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter cut a promo in the ring. Swagger then defeated Justin Gabriel with the Patriot Lock (and kept it on for a lengthy time after the bell).
* Alberto Del Rio defeated Big Show to retain the World Title in a Street Fight (with the cross arm breaker). Show also went through two tables in the match. There was a botched face buster by Del Rio off the second rope which was supposed to have sent Big Show through a table, but instead only Del Rio went through.
* Wade Barrettbeat Bo Dallas to retain the IC title with a bull hammer as Bo was coming off the top rope. There was some mic work by Barrett, who was taling up his movie.
* Team Hell No defeated Team Rhodes Scholars. After the match Kane and Daniel Bryan had a lengthy argument that ended with a Hug.
I was really surprised by the boos that were drowning out Swagger and Colter, they just haven't seemed that loud on TV. There seemed to be a lot of people who knew who Tatsu and McGillicutty were.
Really cool of Orton, as he stayed around ringside for pictures and shaking hands.
1. Randy Orton for sure
2. Alberto Del Rio
3. Team Hell No
1. Jack Swagger & Zeb Colter
2. Team Rhodes Scholars
3. Wade Barrett
Surprisingly, Mark Henry and The Big Show had probably 60/40 boos to cheers.
