The events leading to Batista vs. Edge were recapped. 

World Heavyweight Champion Edge vs. Batista - Steel Cage Match 

Edge ran for the door at the bell, but Batista grabbed him and flung him across the ring.  Edge climbed up the cage, but Batista pulled him down.  Batista hit some shoulderblocks in the corner, then hit a forearm uppercut after whipping him across the ring. Edge climbed the cage again, but Batista got up on the top rope with him and beat him down.  Batista pounded Edge in the ring, then hit a shoulderblock for a two count.  Edge tried to fight back, but Batista out punched him and then hit a clothesline for a two count. Edge hit some punches, then went to climb up the cage again, but Batista pulled him back into the ring and hit a clothesline from behind.  Batista suplexed Edge for a two count. Batista started to climb up the cage, kicking away Edge as he tried to stop him.  Edge ended up dropkicked Batista's legs as he stood on the top rope, and Batista fell between the ropes and cage.  Edge hit a shoulderblock between the ropes, then rammed the back of Batista's head into the cage.   Edge hit a baseball slide into Batista, then kicked him and drove a knee into his midsection.

Edge crawled for the door, but Batista pulled him back in. Batista went for a slam, but Edge floated over and drove the back of Batista's head into the mat.  They went to the ropes again, and Batista pulled Edge down with a superplex into the ring.  Batista climbed up the cage, but Edge met him there.  Batista rammed Edge into the support beam, and Edge fell into the mat.  Batista jumped off the top rope for a shoulderblock, but Edge dropkicked him as he came down. Both men were slow to get up.  They charged each other, Edge looking for a spear, Batista looking for a shoulderblock, and they collided. They slowly got up, and Batista rammed Edge back first into the cage.  Batista hit a clothesline, and got a two count with a sidewalk slam.  Edge went for a dropkick off the ropes, but Batista swatted it away.  Batista catapulted Edge into the cage and got a two count.  Batista whipped Edge across the ring and hit a clothesline, then lifted him up and rammed him into the cage.  Edge sidestepped a Batista charge and Batista ran into a corner where a turnbuckle cover had previously been pulled off.  Edge hit a spear for a two count.  Edge was bleeding from the mouth.

Edge started to climb up the cage, but Batista pulled him off and into a spinebuster for a two count.  Batista lifted Edge for a powerbomb, but Edge grabbed the cage and pulled himself up on it.  Edge got on top of the support beams, but Batista got onto the top rope and grabbed Edge, pulling him down inside the cage.  They were on the top rope, and Edge hit two kicks to the groin.  Batista fell, crotching himself on the top rope, and then fell into the ring.  Edge fell down, then climbed back up, boosting himself over the top of the cage.  Batista was crawling for the door, but Edge dropped to the floor at the fifteen minute mark.  Batista had his hands on the floor before Edge dropped, but as noted by the announcers, it is "both feet" that must touch the floor first.

Winner: Edge.

Batista stalked Edge at ringside, and Edge jumped over the security wall and ran out through the crowd, leaving the World Title belt at ringside with a frustrated Batista.

The events leading to the final match of the evening were recapped.

WWE Champion John Cena vs. The Great Khali - No Submissions, Pinfalls Count Anywhere In The Building

Cena kicked at Khali's leg at the bell, circling him.  Khali caught a kick and clubbed Cena in the back of the head.  Khali rammed Cena into the turnbuckle, then kicked him and elbowed him in the side of the head.  Khali hit a headbutt.  Fans are chanting for Cena.  Khali kicked Cena in the gut, then whipped him across the ring into the opposite corner.  Khali punched Cena in the head, and Cena collapsed on the mat.  Khali stood on Cena's head. Khali hit a boot to the face, and hit what was a slow motion spinning leg lariat.  Khali scooped up Cena and slammed him, but Cena knocked Khali's leg out and hit a variation of the Throwback.  Cena went to the top rope, but Khali chopped him and knocked him to the floor. Khali stood on Cena with one foot on the floor for a two count.  Cena fought back with punches, but Khali side stepped a charge and Cena went into the ring steps.  Khali rammed Cena into a TV monitor at ringside. Khali went for a chop, but Cena blocked it, so Khali threw Cena over the guardrail and into the crowd.

Khali followed Cena into the crowd, hitting a punch.  Khali whipped Cena into the sound desk, but Cena picked up a monitor and hit Khali in the head with it.  Cena went for the FU, but couldn't lift Khali, who knocked him down and hit a forearm to the back.  Khali hit another forearm and kicked Cena in the back.  Cena used the camera boom, pushing it into Khali to knock him down and get a two count.  Cena lifted Khali for the FU, but Khali elbowed out of it. Khali pressed Cena and threw him onto the deck of a crane that was part of the stage set. Khali went for the double chokeslam, but Cena raked his eyes.  Cena lifted Khali and threw him off the crane with an FU to the floor (for reference purposes, the drop was about the same as from the second rope to the floor).  Cena got the pin on the floor at the ten minute mark.

Winner: John Cena.

Cena ran back to the ring with the title belt to celebrate to end the show. Elite Subscribers can enjoy our exclusive post-PPV audio show.  You can become an elite subscriber by clicking here.
