-John Cena kicks off the show, and discusses the main event tonight. He is interested because Dolph Ziggler is involved, and Ziggler has been up in his business as of late. So to return the favor, he will get into Ziggler’s business. He makes lame jokes about Ziggler being a little woman and reminds us of his 2-minute title run. He also stated that Ziggler would soon be powerless, because he would eventually lose the briefcase. Alberto Del Rio came out because he was not impressed with John Cena, and said that Cena needed to worry about Del Rio. The last time Cena was on Smackdown, Del Rio says he destroyed him. They will meet in a match tonight, and that is next. Cena sucker punches Del Rio to make it official.
And here we go. Lock up to begin, side headlock by Del Rio. Off the ropes and after some counters a hip toss by Cena.
