Welcome to our coverage of WWE Cyber Sunday. We will be updating this page throughout the night with results from the show, so check back often!
The pre-show was the usual pre-taped "Free For All", just plugging the different matches and possible stipulations.
Cyber Sunday began with WWE almost immediately saying that ten million people voted. Of course, since people were able to vote as many times as they wanted, that is WWE stretching things right off the bat. The set is a giant computer, pretty much like a Taboo Tuesday. Maria and Todd Grisham hosted the voting results, with Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler doing commentary.
Umaga vs. ???
Umaga came to the ring, then they showed Kane, Chris Benoit and Sandman in the back, standing together. Kane won the vote with 49%.
Armando tried to distract Kane at the start, but Kane caught a charging Umaga with a back elbow and then got the better of an exchange of punches. Kane rammed Umaga head first into the top turnbuckle. They went back and forth, with Umaga hitting a headbutt, but Kane came back with punches and elbows. Umaga gave Kane a belly to belly suplex, then as Kane sat up, Umaga kicked him in the chest. Umaga hit a diving headbutt on Kane. Kane battled up, but Umaga took him down with a spin kick. Umaga choked Kane against the middle rope. Kane came back with a punch, but Umaga gave him a face plant. Umaga chopped Kane, and they exchanged shots again, but Umaga raked his eyes and slammed him.
Umaga went to the middle rope and hit a diving headbutt for a two count. Umaga delivered some kneelifts to Kane, then hit the running posterior charge on Kane as he was slumped in the corner. They went to the floor, and Umaga missed a clothesline and hit the ringpost. Kane rammed Umaga into the steps, then elbowed him as Umaga's neck was stretched off the ring apron. Back in the ring, Kane pounded Umaga in the corner repeatedly, then hit an uppercut. Kane headbutted Umaga, then hit a charging clothesline in the corner. Umaga gave Kane a Samoan Drop. Armando got on the apron to do the cigar breaking, but Kane sat up and grabbed Umaga for a chokeslam as Umaga turned around to do the spike. Umaga raked Kane's eyes to escape the chokeslam, but missed a charge and Kane gave him a back suplex. Kane went to the top rope, and Armando tried to stop him, but Kane kicked him away. Kane came off the top, and Umaga hit him with the spike as he came off. Umaga then lunged at Kane and hit the spike again, and got the pin at the nine minute mark.
Backstage, Queen Sharmell tried to convince Big Show that it was more important to retain your respective title than be Champion of Champions. Sharmell said Booker would help him if the ECW title was on the line, if he did the same for Booker in case the World Title was on the line. If Cena's title was on the line, Sharmell said it could be every man for himself. Big Show said it was every man for himself regardless, and said being Champion of Champions was important. He started to tell Sharmell what she could do with her scepter, but Sharmell stopped him and said she would inform King Booker of his decision.
Cryme Tyme vs. Highlanders vs. Lance Cade & Trevor Murdoch vs. Charlie Haas & Viscera.
Texas Tornado win the voting with 50% of the vote, so it is everyone in the ring at once, with one fall. A huge brawl broke out, with Cryme Tyme fighting Haas & Viscera in the ring and the Highlanders brawling with Cade & Murdoch on the floor. Haas got sent to the floor, while Viscera was double teamed by Cryme Tyme, only for Cade & Murdoch to run in and clean house. Then the Highlanders ran in and knocked Cade and Murdoch to the floor. The Highlanders did pescados on opponents to the floor, and we had no one in the ring. Haas and JTG got in the ring and Haas stomped him down. The traded punches and JTG hit Haas with a dropkick. Haas came back with a German suplex. Chad came in and gave Haas a big boot to the face. Viscera came in and began brawling with Chad, but Viscera planted him with a side slam. Viscera went to avalanche JTG, but he pulled Haas in front of them, and they all squashed together in the corner. The Highlanders and Cade & Murdoch got back in the ring, hitting a big boot combo and then a clothesline combo on Robbie. Cryme Tyme ran in and knocked Cade and Murdoch out, then scored the pin on the downed Robbie at the five minute mark.
Winners: Cryme Tyme.
Cryme Tyme went to ringside and celebrated with JR and Lawler, and while doing so, stole Lawler's laptop.
Backstage, Shawn Michaels was voting on a laptop over and over, trying to get the referee he wanted. Triple H talked about how Eric Bischoff claims that DX doesn't know what controversial is. Shawn said he was the person that put Bret Hart in a Sharpshooter, and that Triple H married "What's Her Name". Shawn got angry over Bischoff's comment, and proved his was "controversial" by superkicking a bunch of backstage workers (including "Stan" who Shawn asked the name of before superkicking). Triple H said that might not be controversial, but it was funny.
Intercontinental Champion Jeff Hardy vs. ???
Carlito was an overwhelming winner over Shelton Benjamin and Johnny Nitro.
Carlito offered to shake hands at the bell, and they did. There was a "Hardy" chant at the start. Carlito snapmared Hardy at the start and they traded pin attempts with small packages and backslides. Hardy hit a shoulderblock, and Carlito went for a leapfrog, and they awkwardly collided. Carlito dropkicked Hardy's leg out, then hit a back elbow. Carlito suplexed Hardy for a two count, but missed a clothesline and Hardy dropkicked Carlito in the gut. Hardy hit a clothesline, then covered Carlito for a two count. Carlito went for a springboard moonsault off the middle rope, but Hardy moved and Carlito landed on his feet. Hardy sent Carlito to the floor and hit a baseball slide kick. Hardy tried his walking the security wall bit, but Carlito caught him. Back in the ring, Carlito put Hardy in a chinlock, but Hardy got out and pounded Carlito in the corner. Hardy went for a V-Bomb in the corner, but Carlito got his feet up. Carlito put Hardy in a reverse bear hug, but Hardy elbowed out and hit a jawbreaker. Hardy went for a Twist of Fate, but Carlito shoved him into a corner and rolled him up for a two count.
Carlito pounded on Hardy's chest, then went back to the reverse bear hug. Jerry Lawler said 14 and a half million people have voted. I wonder if Shawn Michaels has voted that many times backstage. Hardy started to get out, but Carlito clamped on the reverse bear hug again. The fans chanted "boring". Hardy got out and elbowed Carlito, but Carlito caught him with a flapjack. Carlito got a two count, then hit a backbreaker for a two count. Carlito applied a sleeper, but Hardy got out and hit a DDT. Hardy hit a clothesline, then a second for a two count. Lawler started naming the colors in Jeff's hair. Seriously. Hardy hit a gourdbuster for a two count, then went for a Swanton Bomb, but Carlito got the knees up and scored a two count. Carlito hit a springboard senton and immediately followed with a springboard moonsault for a two count. Carlito went for a reverse DDT, and Hardy tried to reverse, but Carlito punched him. Carlito went for a springboard bodypress, but Hardy ducked. Hardy went for the Twist Of Fate, but Carlito shoved it off, only for Hardy to scale the ropes and hit the Whisper In The Wind for a two count. Hardy went to the top again, but Carlito stopped him with right hands, crotching him. Carlito went to the top rope, mocking Hardy's hand gesture, and went for a top rope rana, but Hardy blocked it, sending Carlito crashing to the mat. Hardy then hit the Swanton Bomb for the pin at the fourteen minute mark.
Winner: Jeff Hardy.
