The show opened with Brad Maddox coming down to the ring, and informing the crowd that John Cena would not be at the event due to injury. The crowd responded with cheers. Maddox said that in order to find a new opponent for Alberto Del Rio (the advertised main event had been Del Rio Vs Cena) there would be a battle royal.

Participants: Christian, R-Truth, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, Rob Van Dam, Mark Henry, Dolph Ziggler, Big E Langston, Ryback, and Daniel Bryan. 

The final four participants were Ryback, Rollins, Ziggler, and Bryan. Ryback and Rollins teamed up against Ziggler and Bryan.

After the match CM Punk teased attacking Heyman before Axel came back into the ring and received a GTS. Punk cut a short promo about how he is going to defeat Brock Lesnar on Sunday, and finally get his hands on Paul Heyman.

8. World Heavyweight Championship Match
Daniel Bryan def. Alberto Del Rio via DQ

Match ended in DQ after Del Rio hit Bryan with a microphone when locked in the No Lock. After the match Bryan again put Del Rio into the submission to which Del Rio tapped. Bryan then grabbed the microphone and said how he grew with two and a half hours away from Portland, and how when they come back in December for Smackdown, he will be the WWE Champion.
