Triple H, Jeff Hardy and Randy Orton were all advertised and were not there. Orton has been hurt for a month so anyone expecting him to be there had some wishful thinking. As reported earlier, some of the local media said the crowd felt ripped off when some of the bigger stars advertised were not there.
Batista and Rey Mysterio, who were not originally advertised, both worked the show. Shawn Michaels also worked the show despite working an injury angle right now. Carlito is also on the tour despite being switched over to the Smackdown brand. He was a big part of the local publicity for the tour so they had to use him.
We do know that Shawn Michaels defeated Chris Jericho (said to have gotten a good reaction from the crowd) and CM Punk defeated Kane to retain the World Heavyweight Title. The main event saw John Cena defeated JBL.
