Christian vs CM Punk
Chris Jericho cuts off CM Punk's entrance by appearing on the Titantron, and he says Punk claims to be the best but he will prove him wrong at Wrestlemania. Jericho says he will expose him professionally, but he also has some new information about his personal life and he says he hasn't talked about his mother yet. He says Punk's mom is normal, which is surprising, but he also found out that Punk was born after his parents' wedding date. Jericho says he is the legal definition of a 'bastard', then Punk shakes his head and gets attacked from behind by Christian.
Punk regains control and slams Christian's head into the announcer's table, then he repeatedly elbows him in the chest while the ref tells him to back off. Punk refuses to listen and pulls the steps towards him, then he picks up Christian for a GTS and slams him down on the steps. He drops to the ground and puts Christian in the Anaconda Vise and screams that this is Jericho until the referees pull him away from Christian. Punk motions that he is done, but he leaps back over the stairs and pummels Christian until the refs finally get him to leave, then Punk takes his title and holds it over his head.
Result – No Contest
Brodus Clay vs Curt Hawkins
Brodus shakes his hips then hits a clotheline when Hawkins runs at him, but Hawkins rebounds by chop blocking Brodus' leg and punching him in the head. Hawkins hits a bulldog for a two count, but Brodus comes back with a headbutt and a punch to the stomach before following it with a running knee lift. Brodus pulls Hawkins into the corner and hits a T-Bone suplex, then he runs the ropes and hits a Funk It splash for the win.
Winner – Brodus Clay
