Kane vs. Shelton Benjamin
Shelton grabs a side headlock, but hits the ropes running into a shoulderblock from Kane. Kane grabs a go behind, and takes Shelton to the mat where they exchange a little chain wrestling sequence with Benjamin gaining control of a front facelock. Kane backs him into the corner and delivers a slap and elbow to the back of the neck. Kane connects with a low dropkick to a seated Benjamin for two, and fires his shoulder into the top buckle. Kane grabs an armbar, and follows up by whipping Shelton to the corner. Kane misses a charge allowing Benjamin to connect with a Stinger Splash and a crossbody for two. Kane comes back with a back suplex for two of his own and goes back to the armbar. Shelton punches free of the armbar, and hops to the top rope diving into a cokeslam attempt from Kane. He is able to slide out, but Kane hits an uppercut and heads to the top rope. Shelton meets him with a side kick sending Kane crashing to the floor, and Shelton follows up with a split legged moonsault to the floor which sends us to break. We return with Shelton still in control with a sleeper hold, but Kane is able to get free with a series of right hands. Kane connects with a big boot for two, but Shelton is back on the apron connecting with a right hand. Benjamin goes up top to deliver a bulldog for two, but Kane is right back with a sidewalk slam for two of his own. Kane goes to the top rope to connect with a flying clothesline, and he calls for the chokeslam. Shelton backs to the top rope to stop it, and then comes back with a slightly botched DDT for two. Kane pushes off a paydirt attempt, but Shelton comes back with an enzaguri. Kane responds with an uppercut, and finally connects with a chokeslam to finish at 10:56. This got a little sloppy at the end, but was still a really fun match. These two worked very well together.
Winner: Kane (Pinfall-Chokeslam **3/4)

Katie Lea Burchill & Jillian vs. The Bella Twins
Katie Lea says she has psychic powers, and she can predict that they are about to beat the Bella Twins 1-2…Jillian interrupts to sing 1-2-3. Wow. Brie starts the match with Katie Lea, and gets taken down with a handful of hair. Katie Lea delivers a bodyslam, but misses an elbow drop. Brie delivers an armdrag off the top rope, and tags in Nikki who delivers a sunset flip for two. Katie Lea comes back with a boot to the gut, and fires Nikki into the top rope. Nikki ducks a right hand, and hits a snap mare for two. Katie comes back to back Brie into the corner and tags in Jillian. Nikki hits a monkey flip and tags in Brie as they hit a double spear for two. Jillian comes back with a pair of rights but charges into a back elbow. Brie goes for a victory roll, but Jillian counters into an electric chair drop for two. Jillian fires Brie across the ring by her hair, and tags Katie back in. Katie hits a backbreaker for two, and locks in an armbar. Brie tries to elbow out, but gets taken down by her hair and tags in Jillian. Jillian goes for a legdrop that misses, and allows the tag to Nikki. Nikki connects with a series of dropkicks and a clothesline. Brie comes back in as they hit a double bulldog, but Katie Lea makes the save. Nikki whips Katie to the ropes, and after a trip from Brie on the floor Nikki dropkicks her to the floor. Jillian goes for a face buster, but Nikki blocks it and rolls her up for the pin at 4:41. Could have been worse I suppose.
The Bella Twins (Nikki pins Jillian-Rollup *)

Six Man Tag Team: Jack Swagger, William Regal, & Zack Ryder (w. Rosa Mendes) vs. Mark Henry, Yoshi Tatsu, & Christian
Shouldn’t we bring back Mathews and Saxton to call this match just for old times? Ryder starts off with Yoshi and grabs a side headlock before hitting a shoulderblock. Yoshi comes back with a series of kicks, and makes the tag to Christian who heads to the top rope with a double axe handle to the shoulder. Ryder bails to the heel corner to tag in Swagger, but Christian answers with a tag to Henry. Swagger grabs a side headlock, but hits the ropes running into a shoulderblock from Henry. Ryder distracts Henry from the apron, and gets brought inside by Henry but that allows a short double team. They go for a double suplex on Henry, but he blocks it and suplexes both men instead. This leads to Regal coming in, but he gets dispatched as well as now all six men are in. Tatsu and Christian send Regal and Swagger to the floor, and Henry press slams Ryder on top of them sending us to break. We return with Christian and Regal facing off, and Christian taking him over with a snap mare. Regal comes back with a knee to the mid section, and a knee to the face before making the tag to Swagger. Swagger hits a powerslam for two, and sends Christian to the ropes. He ducks a clothesline and Yoshi makes the tag coming in with a flying kick for two. Swagger drops Yoshi on the second rope, and then distracts the official long enough for Regal to deliver a boot from the apron. Ryder tags in delivering a low dropkick for two, and he locks in a chinlock. Ryder tags in Regal who comes in with a stomp, and destroys Tatsu with a series of right hands. Regal connects with a back elbow and double underhook suplex for two. Swagger tags in and backs Yoshi into the heel corner where he delivers a series of right hands, and distracts the official long enough for Regal and Ryder to get a few shots in as well. Swagger whips Yoshi into the corner and goes for a Vader Bomb that hits the knees of Tatsu. Yoshi makes the hot tag to Christian as Ryder tags in as well. Christian catches Ryder coming off the second rope with a flap jack, and then chokes him out on the second rope. Christian hits a reverse DDT, and heads to the top rope after delivering a shot to Regal. His attempted crossbody misses, and Ryder hits a neckbreaker for two. Ryder measures Christian for the Ruff-Ryder Leg Lariat, but Christian counters into a powerslam. Everyone ends up in the ring, and the faces chase the heels leaving just Ryder and Christian again. Christian hits the bicycle kick in the corner, and a flying back elbow. That sets up the Killswitch to finish at 12:51. This was an absolutely phenomenal six man main event. Probably as good of a match as we’ll see on television this week.
Winner: Mark Henry, Yoshi Tatsu, & Christian (Christian pins Ryder-Killswitch ***1/2)
