John Cena came out. A replay from Raw was shown of his match with Dolph Ziggler. Cena made fun of Ziggler and his two minute title run. Alberto Del Rio came out to interrupt. Del Rio said Smackdown is his show. He said the last time they were in the ring together he destroyed Cena. Cena said he was interested in the main event, but since he was here he would have a match with Del Rio on the spot.
1. John Cena pinned Alberto Del Rio. Cena started off with an arm drag that threw Del Rio outside the ring. Del Rio snuck back in and kicked Cena. Del Rio dominated Cena early with punches and a suplex. Cena fought back and went for the AA, but Del Rio countered into an arm breaker.

As Cena was walking up the ramp celebrating, Dolph Ziggler came from behind and hit Cena with the Money in the Bank briefcase.
Cena and Booker T argued in the back because Cena wanted to attack Ziggler. Booker said Cena can do whatever he wants after Ziggler’s match with Sheamus.
2. The Great Khali (w/Hornswoggle) defeated David Otunga in 2:00. Not much of a match. Khali and Hornswoggle dancing in the ring was more entertaining than the match.
3. Kane, Daniel Bryan, and Kofi Kingston beat Wade Barrett and The Prime Time Players in 15:00. Kane started off with Darren Young. Titus O’Neil was tagged in and quickly flipped over the ropes to the outside. Bryan was tagged in and flew to the outside, hitting Titus with a knee in the process. Barrett and Kofi were tagged in.

Lot of action and more quick tags. Bryan was eventually in and the Players and Barrett kept him in their corner and grounded with submissions. Bryan eventually tagged Kane, who came in hitting all three opponents. Kane hit clothesline off the top and went for a pin. Titus broke up the count and Kofi knocked him to the outside. Kane chokeslammed Young, and Bryan applied the No Lock for the submission win. Very good match.
