Very good back and forth opener.

As Bryan made his way to the entrance stage, Miz attacked him with the Money in the Bank briefcase and made his way to the ring with Alex Riley.

Miz mockingly apologized, noting that we all know how much he respects Bryan. The lights went out again. Miz said that he was a proud citizen of Cleveland and ripped apart The Miami Heat and the Nexus for both being mediocre. He compared LeBron James to Wade Barrett because they both feel they are entitled to a championship. He said that Wade might become champion but James will never become a champion. Miz said that James has a commercial asking, "What should I do?" Miz said he should go back to Cleveland and apologize for what he did, calling him a traitor. Miz said that he doesn't care what happens to John Cena tonight but Orton and Barrett both need to know that he's tired of carrying the briefcase. He warned them that it's not a matter of if, but when he cashes in. He closed out with his catchphrase.

Josh Mathews interviewed Sheamus., who said that the entire issue is that he’s been WWE champion and Morrison never will be. He said that for all the talks of bullies, he’s not going to shove Morrison into a locker or a toilet, but he’s going to break Morrison’s body and spirit.

John Morrison vs. Sheamus

They began fighting immediately. Sheamus was tossed from the ring, where Morrison hit a corkscrew dive. Sheamus cut Morrison off and began working him over. He locked in a side chinlock. Morrison began fighting his way out but Sheamus clobbered him down to the mat and continued working over him.

Another good match. Sheamus came off well as a brute while Morrison did a great job as the come from behind aerialist. Really fun.

Backstage, R Truth approached John Cena. He told John Cena that he may have a way out of all this for Cena. He told John that Nexus is banned from ringside but he’s not. He offered to come out and “accidentally” make something happen to Orton, so Cena could be free and be guilt free. Cena said that if that happened, he couldn’t live with himself and half the people in WWE can hardly look him in the face now. He said he was going to call it down the middle and that’s the truth. Killings said the truth was that he would believe it when he sees it and walks off. The entire Cena-Killings deal reminds me of Kerry Von Erich and Michael Hayes from the famous Flair vs. Kerry match that ended up sparking the Von Erichs vs. The Fabulous Freebirds when Kerry refused Hayes’ help in cheating to win the NWA World title. Not the same scenario but similar undertones. We’ll see.

WWE Intercontinental champion Dolph Ziggler (with Vickie Guerrero) vs. Kaval

Striker, on behalf of Kaval, dedicated the match to a unit from Brooklyn now in the Middle East. He said that Kaval’s family and friends were watching and gave a shout out to Kaval’s cousin Steve (Monster Mack of JAPW) and Nelson (former TNA star Homicide).

Ziggler took control of Kaval early, working over Kaval’s neck, including a rolling neck snap. Ziggler used a Fireman’s Carry Throw, then whipped Kaval into the corner.

Kaval ducked a charge in the corner and rolled up Ziggler for a two count. Ziggler small packaged him for a two count. Kaval attempted a forward roll pinfall but Ziggler rolled through to reverse it and held onto Kaval’s tights to help hold him down for a three count.

Your winner and still WWE Intercontinental champion, Dolph Ziggler!

Another very good athletic match. Good show so far. I think Ziggler may have taken a hard shot to the head from a Kaval kick as he seemed to be off a step towards the end.

Todd Grisham interviewed Jack Swagger. He said that he should be the captain because he’s the only former World champion. He ripped on Miami, saying they were in Little Cuba, not Miami. Cod Rhodes cut in saying that Swagger was mad he couldn’t get into any hot clubs last night. Alberto Del Rio cut them off and said what they were doing was boring and that wasn’t why they were here. He said they were here to destroy Rey Mysterio, Del Rio said he wanted to see little kids cry because their hero was destroyed. He said that when they were done, he would buy them the beers. He said that they had nothing to fear because Alberto Del Rio was their captain. He walked off, leaving Cody and Swagger last to leave. Rhodes said that he hates to admit it but Del Rio is good.

Really fun match. This is a great show so far.

Backstage, Josh Mathews asked WWE champion Randy Orton about John Cena. Orton cut him off, saying he is sick of talking about John Cena. He said that he feels for Cena, but he did all of this to himself. Orton said that he’s not thinking about Cena, but Wade Barrett. He said that John knows Orton and also knows that being fired would be the best thing that could happen to him, because if he tries to pull something on Orton, Orton is going to take him out. He said tonight isn’t about Cena, Barrett or even The Miz. He said it’s about what Barrett’s going to get – an RKO or a kick to the skull.

WWE Divas champions LayCool vs. Natalya

McCool and Natalya started out, locking up and rolling around the mat. Natalya out-wrestled her early but McCool caught her in a near pinfall. LayCool began double teaming.

Natalya was crying as she was awarded the belt.

LayCool attacked Natalya. Before they could nail her with a title belt, Beth Phoenix’s music hit and she attacked both. She knocked McCool out of the ring and nailed Layla with the Implant Buster. She and Natalya faced off, then she handed Natalya the belts and paraded around the ring with Natalya on her shoulders.

Short match but they got the absolute most they could have out of it. Layla’s facial expressions during Beth’s return were awesome. Good to see Natalya get the nod here and Phoenix’s return was a welcome event. Short but sweet.

World champion Kane vs. Edge

Kane was alone. Edge came out alone, then teased he was going to get Paul Bearer, only to return with an empty wheelchair. They acted as if Edge had figured Kane out by getting into his head. Edge cleaned house early.

Kane attacked Edge immediately, demanding to know where Paul Bearer was. He attacked Edge but Edge sent him into the stairs. Edge positioned Kane into the wheelchair, then ran him into and through a piece of the barricade.

Match never really seemed to get out of first gear and the crowd was nowhere as much into this as they were the other matches on the card. Finish was a creative way to get out of the match while setting up rematches.

Backstage, John Cena was holding a referee’s shirt. Wade Barrett asked him if he remembered the building and pointed out that it was the same Arena where the Nexus first attacked Cena, leaving him a broken, battered man. Barrett asked him if Cena ever thought he’d be part of Nexus or be the man giving Barrett the championship. He said the only reason he didn’t fire Cena after Raw is because he chose not to, because Cena will have to deliver him the championship. He told Cena to do the right thing and he’ll be done with Nexus forever. Cena said he remembered everything about the first night he was attacked and said that Barrett needed to remember that tonight, one way or another, he was done with Nexus and then, he knows exactly what he’s going to do. He walked off.

The Raw GM emailed in and Cole reminded everyone that Nexus is banned from ringside for the WWE title match and if they interfere, the entire group will be indefinitely suspended.

Cena grabbed the WWE title belt and looked at it for a long time, then handed it to Orton. They hugged. Orton celebrated on the corner.

Orton walked out, but stopped to look at Cena, “knowing what John sacrificed.” They followed Orton up the aisle and he raised his belt in victory, then went to the back.

Cena remained in the ring, looking forlorn, as if he knew it was over for him. He took his wristbands off and left them in the ring. Fans chanted for Cena and he quietly circled, looking out to the audience. He saluted the fans and hugged Michael Cole at ringside. Cena hugged some fans as he walked out. He looked into the cameras, pointed, and thanked the fans. He stood on the stage, looking at the audience, made the “Wordlife” symbol and walked off.

He teased walking off, then said, “Not going out like that” and ran into the crowed, hugging fans and high fiving hem as he walked from one end of the arena to the other, through the audience for a long time before finally returning to the stage. No music played during any of this and they treated it like Cena had just signed the death sentence on his career.
