(5) World Heavyweight Championship Match
Dolph Ziggler (c) def. Daniel Bryan

When Bryan’s music hit, the crowd went crazy. This guy is so ridiculously over. Everyone was on their feet, fingers in the air and shouting like there was no tomorrow. Dolph got a couple of boo’s, but a lot of cheers as well. The match was easily the best match of the night. A lot of high paced action, combined with a couple of great spots from both performers. I really enjoyed the submission battle that took place, and they fed of each other during the match. Ziggler won in a typical heelish way, when AJ knocked Bryan off of the top rope, which allowed the Show Off to hit the Zig Zag to get the 1-2-3.

(7) Big E. Langston vs. Kane ended in no contest

Big E. finally had his own entrance music, which I hope he will be using as soon as possible. Kane got a great response from the crowd, who were on the bandwagon of the veterans tonight. The match was ok, but not really special and nothing noteworthy happened. Until Ziggler ran in…

(8) Team Hell no def. Dolph Ziggler and Big E. Langston

When Ziggler interfered, Daniel Bryan immediately saved his partner. Instead of disqualifying Langston, Vickie came out and made this a tag team match. I really don’t understand the point of this. Why not disqualify Langston and let Team Hell no clear the ring to make everyone happy? The match was decent, and Team Hell no celebrated in a familiar way. After some words about who is the tag team champion, they hugged it out and made the crowd very happy.

(9) WWE Championship Tables Match
John Cena def. Ryback

The match was very good. Both men got a lot of offense in and showcased their strength. Cena’s reaction was by far the loudest, although not half of it were cheers. Ryback is over, but in no way on a main event level. The tables stipulation was a nice touch on behalf of the show.
