The Miz vs CM Punk

Miz knocks Punk down with a shot to the ribs, then has him in an abdominal stretch as we get back from a commercial break. Punk counters with an armdrag, the rolls to the apron and kicks him before hitting a diving clothesline. Punk continues on offense with a high knee and running bulldog, then he calls for a GTS but Miz elbows him in the head to get away. He runs the ropes but Punk counters with a high kick, then he runs in the corner but Miz comes back with a swinging DDT. Miz goes up top but Punk counters with another GTS attempt, then Miz tries to counter with a Skull Crushing Finale. Punk counters with the Anaconda Vise and gets him to tap out, then Punk celebrates until Chris Jericho appears on the Titantron.

Jericho says he found out a secret, and he says Punk has always been straight edge since he got to WWE, but something else happened early in his life. He says Punk is straight edge because his father was an alcoholic, and it's in his blood too so Jericho is going to drive him to drink. He says going to beat him and take his title at Wrestlemania, then Punk will drink like he is supposed to, and he will continue to drink because he will learn to enjoy the taste. Jericho says Punk will be a pathetic drunk just like his father, then a shocked Punk picks up his title and slowly walks back up the ramp.

Winner – CM Punk

Randy Orton vs Jack Swagger

Swagger takes Orton down with a waistlock, then puts him in an armbar but Orton counters with a fireman's carry takeover. Orton throws him outside and sends him into the steps, then he slams him into the announcer's table before rolling him in the ring as we go to a break. When we return, Orton fights out of a wristlock and sends Swagger into the corner, but Swagger comes back with a big boot and a chop block. Swagger goes for an ankle lock but Orton kicks him away, so Swagger bodyslams him and attempts a Swagger Bomb. Orton rolls away but Swagger catches him with another ankle lock, but Orton kicks him away again then snaps his head on the top rope. He takes Swagger up top and hits a superplex, then Orton hits some clotheslines and a powerslam. Orton hits a hanging DDT and a RKO, then he makes the cover and walks towards the corner but Kane's pyro explodes in his face.

Winner – Randy Orton
