-During the commercial The Big Show knocked Miz out with a straight right hand. So I assume that's a Big Show face turn?
-Recap of Sheamus destroying HHH and giving him a summer vacation.
-Josh Mathews is joined by World Heavyweight Champion Jack Swagger who says what he did last night screams World Champion. It was exactly what he said he was going to do, and that's dominate Randy Orton. He says he cut the viper's head off and watched him slither away. He calls himself not only the most athletically gifted, but the smartest superstar as well. He goes over his GPA when Edge stops by to say he should be worried about him because he's the number one contender now. If he doesn't get drafted back to Raw he's got about four days left as Champion.
Diva Draft Pick Match: Smackdown-Layla & Michelle McCool (w. Vickie Guerrero) vs. Eve Torres & Maryse
Eve starts things off with Layla and grabs a rear chinlock and takes her down with a shoulderblock. Shades of Great American Bash '91 as the crowd chants "We Want Mickie!" Okay, not really that, but still noticeable. Eve goes to tag Maryse, and gets a kick instead. They brawl on the floor, but Eve is able to beat the count at 7. Layla takes control with a low dropkick for a two count, and tags in McCool who delivers a running clothesline for two. McCool chokes out Eve on the second rope, and when the ref pulls her back Layla works her over from the outside. McCool locks in a Dragon Sleeper on Eve, but Eve is able to flip out and counter into a reverse DDT for two. Eve thinks about a tag, but instead shakes it off and makes the comeback herself with a series of dropkicks. Neckbreaker from Eve picks up two, but as she goes for her finish Maryse tags in from the outside. Maryse spends her entire time posing at Eve and turns into a big boot from McCool picking up Smackdown a draft pick at 5:00. What a tremendous display of athleticism from these ladies. Just a joy to watch this contest.
Winners: Layla & Michelle McCool (Pinfall-Big Boot ****)
FIRST PICK: SMACKDOWN SELECTS KELLY KELLY
-Kelly stands on the stage and looks pretty while McCool and Layla mock her.
Draft Pick Match: Raw-Evan Bourne vs. Smackdown-CM Punk (w. Luke Gallows & Serena)
Punk pushes Bourne into the corner and buries a series of knees which he follows with a back kick. Bourne comes back with a flying hurracanrana, but Punk catches a second attempt and delivers a backbreaker. Punk hits a series of kicks to the ribs, but Bourne finally catches one and rolls him up for two. Bourne hits the ropes but runs into a spinning heel kick from Punk for two. Punk goes for a suplex, but Bourne counters with a knee to the face. Bourne delivers another knee, and a low dropkick to Punk for two. Bourne delivers a spinning heel kick sending Punk crashing to the floor, and Bourne takes out both Punk and Gallows with a springboard splash to the floor. Back inside Bourne hits a kick to the jaw, and delivers a running knee to a seated Punk in the corner. Bourne goes for Air Bourne, but Serena distracts the official and that allows the masked man to run in and trip him up. Punk delivers the Go 2 Sleep from there to pick up the win at 4:00. Great match for what little bit it lasted.
Winner: CM Punk (Pinfall-Go 2 Sleep **1/2)
SECOND PICK: SMACKDOWN SELECTS THE BIG SHOW
-Sheamus is out and says the good news is Triple H will not be drafted to Smackdown. The bad news is Triple H will never wrestle again. He's sure Triple H would have loved to leave the WWE on his own terms, but he made the mistake of underestimated Sheamus. His career ended at Extreme Rules with a series of kicks to the head. Now he's moving on. He wanted Triple H out of the WWE, and he got him out but now he wants the WWE Championship. Before he can call out John Cena he's interrupted by Randy Orton instead. Orton says no one has despised HHH as much as he has, and he has done despicable things to him and his family. But when it was time to fight at Wrestlemania (or the various other 1419 PPV matches they've had) he did it like a man. Instead he fought him face to face. He says Sheamus doesn't deserve a title shot, but Sheamus rightly takes exception to that saying Orton had a shot last night and lost. He tells Orton to get out of his ring before he gets put out like HHH. Orton says he's got a better idea. He'll RKO him and punt his head off right now. Sheamus says he doesn't deal with losers, and he's going to face John Cena and there's nothing Orton can do about it. Cena comes out to try to sort this out. Cena says we seem to have a bit of a problem. Both of these men seem to think they should be number one contender, and as a result he couldn't think of a better opportunity to introduce tonight's guest host. Cena does that a couple times when no one comes out, and his phone rings. Cena even gets a couple good one liners in about that being why he wrestles in jean shorts. I guess Mel Kiper was booked. After a bunch of shenanigans Cena says he's the one who gets to decide the number one contender. They better hope neither one gets drafted because they're facing each other for the shot at the title tonight. Sheamus goes for the pump kick, but Orton ducks and goes for the RKO. Sheamus escapes trouble and it ends in a stalemate.
