The Miz & Big Show vs. John Morrison & R-Truth
This is a non-title match. It’s just getting started now, hang tight. Not a long match at all. Finish came when Big Show went to chokeslam Morrison, Morrison slapped on a triangle choke but was hanging over the top rope during the hold. The ref counted to 5, he didn’t break the hold, so he was DQ’d.

This was even shorter. Maybe a minute long. MVP hit his finisher on Miz but Big Show hit the knockout punch from behind.

In-Ring Segment: Sheamus Promo, HHH Will Wrestle!
Sheamus cut a promo and reminded everone that he told us it would be a bad night for Triple H if he showed up at Extreme Rules, and he was right. We flash to Todd Grisham backstage. HHH bull-rushes through a door, selling the injury big, as he walks to the ring.
About a 15 minute match here too. Good match too. The finish was a simple one, as Sheamus just repeatedly hit his kick to the head finisher on HHH. 2-3 kicks and he pinned him clean. After the match, Sheamus left, came back and kicked HHH again. They sold the HHH injury huge post-match.

Backstage: Josh Mathews Interviews Chris Jericho
Jericho says losing to Heath Slater doesn’t make him less of a big money player in WWE. Jericho guarantees to end Edge’s career forever.
Great match. Went about 20 minutes. Finish came when Jericho was crawling to exit the cage door. He stood up to leave, turned around for a second, and it was one second too long as Edge hit him with a spear and pinned him for the victory.
Pretty damn good match from these two again. Went a bit over 20 minutes. Finish came when Cena crotched Batista on the ring post. He then proceeded to duct tape Batista’s legs to the post. The referee started his count because Batista wasn’t standing, and Cena did the "You Can’t See Me" gesture right as he counted ten.
Winner and STILL WWE Champion: John Cena
