Michael Cole came out to massive heat. Booker got a standing ovation, but he is from Houston. Poor Josh Mathews got little reaction between that.
Edge and Alberto Del Rio opened the show. Del Rio brought out Brodus Clay (no car, no ring announcer). Edge attacked Del Rio. Clay got involved and then Christian came out and they had a brawl that the refs broke up. Teddy long came out and announced Edge and Christian vs. Del Rio and Clay.
1. Kane vs Wade Barret. Kane came out to a hero’s welcome. Barrett called Kane a chemical experiment mistake. The Corre interfered in the match and then Big Show made the save.
Teddy Long came out and announced a match with Kane and Show vs. Barrett and Heath Slater.
2. Kane and Big Show defeated Wade Barrett and Heath Slater by DQ. Show was about to chokeslam Wendy’s Guy, but Ezekiel Jackson and Justin Gabriel ran in for the DQ.
Rey Mysterio was shown backstage. The crowd went nuts (especially the kids to my right).
3. Cody Rhodes defeated JTG. Cody wore a suit and asked for Rey Mysterio. The bell rang and Cody, who was still wearing the suit and his face mask, beat JTJobber.
The Shawn Michaels video from Raw was replayed.
Michael Cole stood in the ring and introduced John Cena. They replayed The Miz attack from Raw. The crowd seemed to love Cena. A few guys chanted “Rocky” while Cena talked. Cena said he will break Miz’s face. Cole sung Miz’s praises. Cena started to attack Cole, but Swagger came out and attacked Cena, who kicked Swagger out and went after Cole. Swagger recovered enough to save Cole, but took the Attitude Adjustment. Cena posed for crowd.
4. Layla (w/Michelle McCool) defeated Kaitlyn. The little boy on my right was criticizing enough. Layla won with interference from McCool. They beat Kaitlyn down more post-match. McCool tugged at her short skirt throughout. As they left, Layla helped McCool up the ramp. The crowd was nonplussed.
5. Rey Mysterio defeated Drew McIntyre. The kids went nuts for Mysterio. After the match, Cody came out and demanded an apology. Rey declined and said he will wear his match with pride at WrestleMania 27.
Triple H brought the house down. He introduced a video of all the people he has beaten down through the years. He put Shawn Michaels over as the greatest. He said his emotions won’t get in his way as it did with Shawn. He thanks Undertaker for making it a no holds barred match.
The gong sounds. The crowd was on their feet. Taker came out and they stared at each other. Triple H did a crotch chop. Taker did the throat slash and left. Hunter posed for a minute and then left. Taker had a mic, but he did not speak.
Christian promo’d the tag match. This time we got Ricardo Rodriguez and the car entrance.
6. Edge and Christian defeated Alberto Del Rio and Brodus Clay. Christian vs. Clay to open. Clay threw Christian out like a child. Del Rio attacked him. Edge ran outside and chased him off. Christian struggled, then Edge finally got the tag. He went for a spear but Clay deflected it. A mini brawl ensued until Edge landed the pin. Good match. Edge and Christian hugged as the taping ended.
