By Ryan Clark | April 05, 2010 |
Kofi Kingston vs. Sheamus
Sheamus takes control early and goes for a powerslam, but Kofi slides down the back and delivers a few kicks. Sheamus catches Kofi off the ropes however and delivers a brutal backbreaker. Sheamus stomps on Kofi in the corner, and delivers a forearm for a two count. Sheamus grabs a crossface chicken wing, and follows up by whipping Kofi to the corner. Kofi comes back with a kick from the apron, and a springboard crossbody. Kofi delivers a pair of double hand knife edges, and a standing dropkick. Kofi hops to the top rope to deliver a series of right hands, but Sheamus is right back with a pair of pump kicks. That sets up the Razors Edge to finish at 2:56. SOS, dey see me jobbin! After the match Sheamus grabs the lead pipe he used last week on HHH from under the ring, and whacks Kofi over the back of the head with it. Triple H is shown headed to the ring as we go to break.
Winner: Sheamus (Pinfall-Razors Edge *1/2)
Triple H is walking to the arena.
-Sheamus says last week Shawn Michaels's career came to an end. He says it was a great 25 year career, but it took him 8 years to win his first WWE Championship. He says he did it in six months, and he was supposed to cap the greatest first year ever by being victorious at Wrestlemania. He says the greatest moment of his career was taken away from him by Triple H. He says last week he took something away from him when he attacked him from behind with a steel pipe and left him laying. He says he knows Triple H is here tonight, but rather than get his revenge he decided to come out and say goodbye to his best friend Shawn Michaels. He says he cried for a man who decided to leave so he wouldn't have to face him. He says Shawn left before he had to take him out, but HHH is a bit more stubborn. He says HHH doesn't have one more great match left him, but he asks if HHH is going to go out in a blaze of glory or in a wheel chair. He says HHH can either make the decision or he will make it for him. That brings out HHH, who climbs to the apron but thinks twice before getting inside. He instead grabs the sledgehammer, and bashes Sheamus in the gut with it sending him to the floor. HHH takes a wild swing at Sheamus but he moves and bails through the crowd. HHH says that's just like a silly Irishman to bring a pipe to a sledgehammer fight. That was his only line. No seriously, that was it.
Diva's Red Carpet Dressed to Impress Battle Royal: Participants-Kelly Kelly, Alicia Fox, Gail Kim, Rosa Mendes, Jillian Hall, Katie Lea Burchill, Brie Bella, Nikki Bella, Eve Torres
This is basically an evening gown battle royal. Sure to be a match of the year candidate. Big brawl to start with the Bellas tossing Rosa immediately. Both Bellas get tossed right away as well, and Gail and Katie Lea fight on the apron. Kelly dropkicks them sending both of them out. Kelly delivers her twisting hurracanrana to Alicia, but a firemans carry sends her out at the hands of Jillian. Maryse has joined us on commentary by the way, as the winner of this gets a title shot. Jillian and Alicia deliver a double suplex to Eve, and follow up by whipping her to the buckle. Jillian tries to fire Alicia into the corner, but she misses and gets dumped leaving just Jillian and Eve. More shenaningans from Alicia on the floor sees Eve nearly eliminated, and Jillian prematurely celebrating. Of course Eve saves herself and dumps Jillian to win this abortion at 2:40. The less said the better.
Winner: Eve Torres (Last Eliminates Jillian Hall DUD)
