Sheamus starts the show by saying he wants to acknowledge HHH, and he says HHH was his first Wrestlemania opponent, but it was his first Wrestlemania loss too. He says HHH is a legend and he is a great guy, which is the complete opposite of what Alberto Del Rio is. Damien Sandow comes out and says he is there to help Sheamus, and Sandow says Sheamus is as ignorant as he is large in stature. Sandow says HHH and DX assaulted him on RAW 1000, and Sheamus says it was great but Sandow calls his response 'typical.' He says Sheamus calls himself a proud Irishman, but he brings shame and promotes a negative stereotype.

Sheamus says they could listen to him talk, but they have lives so he should shut up, or he can get in the ring and say it to his face. Sandow says he would love nothing more than to beat him up, but he says Sheamus is unworthy of his time and he actually saved him. Sandow says he will take his leave and says your welcome, but Booker T comes out and says he actually agrees with Sandow and the point he made. Booker says no one wants to see an intellectual thrashing, but they want to see a physical fight, so they will have a match tonight and he asks if the crowd digs that.

Rey Mysterio vs Cody Rhodes

Cody takes Rey to the mat and puts him in a keylock, but Rey reverses it so Cody stands up and slams him into the turnbuckles. Rey counters a suplex but Cody knocks him down, then he whips him into the ropes but Rey dropkicks him into the ropes. He sets up a 619 but Cody sends him outside, then he slams his head into the commentary table as we go to a break. When we get back, Cody suplexes Rey for a near fall, then he drives his knee into Rey's shoulders and goes for a near fall. Cody knees him in the stomach and hits a front release suplex, then he flips him over and knees him in the back before putting him in a side headlock. (Cont'd…)
