Edge says he really, really tried, but his gut tells him he needs to listen to himself. He says look what happened when he came back at the Royal Rumble when he listened to the fans. He says his Summerslam team is falling apart and he needs to start doing things his way. He agrees that Nexus needs to go down, but he wants it his way, and he wants Wade Barrett one on one tonight.
R-Truth comes out and isn’t his normal self and gets ring to the ring and asks if Edge thinks fighting Barrett will work. He says it won’t help, and he will listen to Truth right now. Truth asks Edge how many times in his life he had to fight for everything, and fight for the WWE and what they love. He tells Edge they do it together or Nexus wins, and he needs to stop thinking of himself and pull his head out of his rear end. Edge says that’s Truth’s version of the truth, but his is that he will cut the head off of the snake, and take out Barrett first. He tells Truth to get out of the ring, or he will spear him out of it right now.
Michael Cole gets a GM email and says Edge will get what he wants, and that match with Barrett will be right now. He tells Truth to get out of the ring and he does, but not before telling Edge he is on his own, and good luck…
Edge vs Wade Barrett
Barrett headbutts Edge, but gets whipped into the corner and pulled throat first on the ropes. Edge follows by slamming Barrett’s head into the turnbuckle and hitting a spear in the corner, but only gets a two count. Barrett recovers and hits a big boot then sends Edge flying out of the ring and into the barricade. Barrett rolls him back in the ring and chokes him on the ropes until the ref calls for the break. He keeps Edge grounded into a rear choke until Edge fights out, and they double clothesline each other and are down on the mat. Edge hits a flying forearm then follows it with the Edge-O-Matic for a two, and then goes up to the top rope. Barrett cuts him off and goes for The Wasteland, but Edge counters into the Impaler DDT and he sets up for the spear. Barrett ducks the spear and jumps out of the ring to recover, and motions for Nexus to come out. As they run down the ramp Edge runs through the crowd to get out of harms way.
Result – No Contest
