Huge pop for Owens.

Owens screwed for Cena to come out, saying, "We've all seen the act for ten years, come down and fight."

Eden did a hell of a job as ring announcer.

Some guy held up a sign bragging he's been to 35 straight PPVs.  I have a friend that hasn't missed a WWE show in MSG in over 30 years and has been to every Wrestlemania, so top that!

They were going back and forth early in the back when Owens stopped and drilled Cena with a right hand, stunning him.  Owens had control early and drilled him with a dropkick.  It was all Owens.    Cena made a comeback and scored with the Alabama Jam but only garnered a two count.

Cena went for the AA but couldn't hold Owens and was drilled with a clothesline for a two count.   Owens kept telling Cena to stay down but Cena wouldn't listen and came back with the Blue Thunder Bomb.  Cena went for the Five Knuckle  Shuffle but Owens rolled out of the way and went outside the ring, where he nailed Cena.  Owens went to the top for a swanton but Cena pulled his knees up.

Owens avoided the AA and did all of Cena's five moves of doom, including the Five Knuckle Shuffle.  He went for the AA but Cena slipped underneath with the Electric Chair, dropped him forward and cinched in an STF.  Owens fought for the ropes and escaped.  He and Cena battled in the corner until Owens caught him with an over the knee backbreaker for a two count.

Owens kept working over Cena.  Cena tried to go for the springboard stunner but Owens caught him in mid-air and dropped him with a German suplex, then hit a cannonball in the corner for a two count.   Good stuff.  Owens yelled at Michael Cole, allowing Cena a chance to recover.  They battled back and forth until Cena nailed a Code Red for a two count.

Cena went for the Alabama Jam but was caught with a sit-down powerbomb for a two count.  They continued to go back and forth.  Cena placed Owens on the top and attempted a superplex but Owens reversed it into a brainbuster like move for a two count.   The announcers played up that Cena may have hurt his shoulder.

Owens went for the Pop-up Powerbomb but Cena turned it into a rana.  Owens drilled Cena and nailed the AA then locked in an STF of his own.  The announcers said Owens wanted to humiliate Cena.  Cena fought and finally made it to the ropes.  He nailed the springboard stunner but Owens immediately drilled him with a clothesline.  Man, Steve Austin is going to be pissy about that.

Owens nailed a nasty looking move when he drove Cena's shoulder down into Owens' knee for a two count.    Cena nailed an AA but Owens kicked out.   Cena, frustrated, drilled Owens with a clothesline but was then hit with a Pop-up Powerbomb for a near fall.

Owens went to the top but Cena met him and they slugged it out.  Cena went for an AA off the top turnbuckle and nailed it for a two count.   Cena threw his hands up as if to ask what else he can do.  He went to grab Owens who was out.  Owens caught him with a small package for a two count but Cena turned it into another STF.  Owens almost made it to the ropes but Cena pulled him away and Owens tapped.

Your winner and still United States champion, John Cena!

Another really good match between the two. 

MizTV with Big Show

Miz cut a promo upset about Ryback getting hurt and ruining their scheduled match, which is now postponed.  He knocked Ryback and said that Ryback was really just scared of Miz because he was the toughest man in the building right now and knew he was going to take the Intercontinental championship.  He said that who knows where Big Show is, because he's been missing since the Attitude Era and should retire.

Miz said that The Authority should crown him the new IC champion because he's the only one who's here.  He said he was going to take the title like Los Angeles was going to take the St. Louis Rams.  Show came out.  Miz tried to kiss up to him.  Show walked out, KO'd him and left.

They pushed Summerslam next month.

WWE World Heavyweight champion Seth Rollins vs. Brock Lesnar

Lesnar attacked and unloaded on Rollins with shoulderblocks.  He tried to go for a suplex but Rollins wormed his way out and went to the floor.  Lesnar followed and chased him into the ring.  Lesnar went for a suplex but Rollins held onto the ropes for dear life, then kicked Cena.  Rollins nailed several kicks but Lesnar grabbed him for the F5.  Rollins slipped out but was caught and nailed with several German suplexes.  Lesnar nailed him with a third. 

Rollins was nailed with two more and rolled out of the ring towards the announcer's table.  He said the hell with the match and tried to walk out through the crowd but Lesnar dove over the barricade, grabbed Rollins and toss him back into the ringside area.  After watching that, you never want Lesnar pissed and chasing you, I assure you.

Rollins was tossed back into the ring and nailed with another German suplex.  Rollins made a comeback and went after Lesnar's hamstring and knee.  Rollins nailed several superkicks to the face. Lesnar grabbed him for an F5 but Rollins slipped out and nailed more kicks, then sent Lesnar to the outside.  He stole from the Jay Lethal playbook by nailing two dives in a row but was caught and hit with yet another German suplex.

Lesnar made a comeback and hit the F5 but the lights went out and you heard the Undertaker's gong.  When they returned on, Rollins was gone and Undertaker was in the ring facing off with Lesnar.  Undertaker grabbed him for a chokeslam but Lesnar slipped out and went for an F5.  Undertaker slipped out and kicked him low.  Undertaker nailed a chokeslam on Lesnar.  Undertaker grabbed Lesnar and tombstoned him.  The crowd chanted for Undertaker as he left.  Lesnar began to stir so Undertaker returned to the ring and nailed another tombstone.

Undertaker did his pose and his music and all the lightning and thunder played.  We went off the air without a finish to the match.

Looks like Undertaker vs. Lesnar at Summerslam folks!
