Dolph Ziggler (w/ Vickie Guerrero) vs Sheamus
Dolph punches Sheamus a few times and backs him in to the corner, but Sheamus tosses him into the turnbuckles and whips him across the ring. Dolph kicks him and tries to take him down, but Sheamus counters with a rolling fireman's carry slam for a two count. Sheamus puts Dolph on the ropes and goes for a leg lariat, but Dolph rolls away and holds the ropes and Sheamus crashes outside to the floor. Sheamus gets back up and pulls him outside then he tries to throw him into the ringpost but Dolph slides away. He elbows Dolph in the face and whips him towards the steps, but Dolph jumps up and runs over them to avoid any damage. Vickie gets in Sheamus' face and yells at him, then Dolph runs in the ring and surprises him with a low slide dropkick as we go to a break.
When we return, Dolph knees Sheamus in the midsection, then he applies a crossface variation but Sheamus makes it to his feet and hiptosses him. Sheamus knocks him down with some clotheslines, then he slams him into the corner before hitting a kneelift and a bodyslam for a two count. Dolph gets a few shots in before going up top, but Sheamus cuts him off and they slug it out before Dolph connects with a legdrop bulldog for a two count. Dolph attempts a sleeperhold but Sheamus counters with White Noise, then he backs up and Brogue Kicks him for the win. Alberto Del Rio and Ricardo Rodriguez run out to attack him at the top of the stage, and Alberto kicks his head against the WWE logo then puts him in the Cross Armbreaker on the edge of the stage before leaving.
Winner - Sheamus
John Laurinaitis is backstage wondering where he coffee is when David Otunga walks up to him and tells him he should look at what is on WWE.com. Johnny says he doesn't care what it is, then Otunga says he should because Mr. McMahon is making his return to RAW next week. Johnny says that is a good thing, but Otunga says it's not because he will be getting a performance evaluation, then we see Cole kissing ass at commentary saying his match tonight wasn't personal at all.
