Sheamus vs Tensai (Sakamoto)
Tenasai throws Sheamus to the mat, then Sheamus hits a shoulder block and reverses a corner whip with a big boot. Sheamus hits him in the back but Tensai punches him in the corner, then they trade some punches and Tensai drops him with a stiff elbow shot. Sheamus ducks a short clothesline, then he hits Tensai and clotheslines him out of the ring as we go to a commercial break. When we return, Sheamus fights from his knees and punches Tensai in the midsection, but Tensai knees him in the face and whips him into the opposite corner. Tensai hits a corner splash and a middle rope bomb for a near fall, but Sheamus fires up and hits a few forearm shots for a near fall.
Tensai elbows his way out of an Irish Curse backbreaker attempt, then he shoves Sheamus over the top rope but Sheamus ties him in the ropes and clubs him. Sheamus leaps off the top rope but Tensai catches him on the way down, then he choke bombs him and gets a two count. Tensai headbutts him and tries to whip him into the ropes, but Sheamus shifts his weight so Tensai knees him in the face. He backs up and tries to bounce off the ropes, but Sheamus turns around and surprises him with a Brogue Kick for the win.
Winner - Sheamus
John Laurinaitis is shown watching with Vince McMahon and Teddy Long, and Vince says they will consider that his first strike tonight. Vince asks what his next idea is, and Johnny stutters until Vickie Guerrero walks in. Vickie says they should consider Dolph Ziggler and Jack Swagger, and Vince says he is sure Johnny will consider it. Johnny asks what Teddy thinks, and he says they have four former champions here tonight, and Dolph and Swagger should join Christian and The Great Khali in a four way elimination match. Vince says that sounds like a great idea, then Johnny tries to fist bump him, but Vince says he has tiny hands and walks away.
