Thanks to Shaya Nasty for sending this in:
John Laurinaitis welcomes the Abu Dhabi crowd and informs them that tonight's match between John Cena and Kane will be NO DQ and that he has special surprise in store for CM Punk later in the evening.
Alex Riley v Jack Swagger
Swagger defeated Riley with the ankle lock, good match to open the night
Michael Mcgillicutty v Drew McIntyre
McIntyre informed the crowd he had flown 14 1/2 hours to get to the UAE and was looking forward to having a quick match so he can leave the UAE. He also proclaimed tonight would be the night his losing streak ends. The crowd was dead for this match. Mcgillicutty won via pinfall.
Primo & Epico v Santino and Mason Ryan
Entertaining tag team match, crowd loved Santino. Lots of back and forth, Mason Ryan getting his opportunity to look like the monster WWE wants him to be. Lots of comedy with Primo & Epico who retained the titles with a pinfall over Santino.
The Miz v R-Truth
Miz spent 10 minutes speaking to the crowd about how awesome he is, even mentioning he had won 2 Slammys…really, Really! R-Truth gets the win with the pinfall then does his third improv dance for the night. Really.
Chris Jericho v Kofi Kingston
Jericho teases to speak before dropping the mic and smirking. Kofi wastes no time and attacks Jericho upon his entrance to the ring. Jericho provides the classic highlights and Kofi gets in his high spot. Jericho applies the Walls of Jericho twice only for Kofi to get to the ropes the first time, and reverse the second time. Jericho wins with the Codebreaker.
John Cena v Kane (NO DQ)
Typical DQ match…lots of slamming into the steel steps, outside ring action, and mic to the head of Kane. Cena won via the AA after which Kane informed him that tomorrow night he will get another shot at him……..in a tables match. Lots of 'Let's go Cena, Cena sucks' chants in this one.
CM Punk v Dolph Ziggler
Before the match, Johnny L comes out and makes Dave Otunga special enforcer and the match 2 out 3 pinfalls. Punk gets the first pin in the first two minutes. Ziggler gets the second after reversing the GTS to the ZigZag. Referee is knocked out which allows Otunga to grab another referee, but not throw him into the ring until Punk is laid out. Punk kicks out at 2. Otunga argues with the referee about not doing his job only to get a GTS which actually connected with his ribs. Ziggler soon follows receiving the GTS and the 1,2,3. Punk thanks the crowd for coming and then poses with the crowds at ringside, accepting traditional gifts on the way.
