"Yes, sir, we promised you a great main event…"
Theme song opens us up which I don't recall them doing lately.
Cena is here to open the show and remember he is LIBERATED now. He talks about how it's odd that every time someone comes down the ramp they always grab a microphone and just talk about what happened last week. Tonight, he's going to do the exact same thing. As always he acknowledges the fans that boo him which is rather refreshing. We get a clip of Punk destroying Cena with the chair and starting what could be a very awesome feud.
He talks about how in his relentless pursuit of Nexus he did in fact, accidently spill Punk's diet soda. Cena apologizes for costing Punk .75 or 1.25 in select vending machines. The soda can't be replaced but he can give Punk a chance to come out here and air his grievances. Cue Killswitch Engaged and here's Punk.
CM says that the Cena we get isn't the real one as Cena is dishonest. Punk says this is beyond a diet soda. Oh man this is about to get intense. I mean, BEYOND A DIET SODA??? It goes like this I believe: a slap in the face, a murder, economic collapse, diet soda. Beyond that is hard to say. Punk talks about how Cena's word means nothing as he said he was going back to Massachusetts but he was back that night. And then back the next week, and the next week and the next week.
And then we get to TLC, where Cena dropped 15 chairs on Barrett after winning. Cena calls that Balderdash (fun game actually) because it was 22 steel chairs. Cena says that after all the beatdowns Cena had taken from Nexus and being their slave and all that jazz, it was rather justified. Punk brings up making Batista quit after beating him at Over the Limit which Cena says was on his own choice and after Batista broke Cena's neck, which is true to a degree.
Punk says this is all about making fun of people and how he always insults people that don't deserve it all the time. Cena claims he has done that for 8 years and makes fun of everyone. This is going very fast and is hard to keep up with but it's going very well so far. Punk says those two attacks last week were warning shots but this is going to stop.
Cena says nothing is going to stop and is all like bring it on. Punk says this is his show and tonight he's going to call out Cena. There's a real surprise later tonight and it's something Cena is never going to forget. Punk says Happy New Year and salutes as he leaves. I'm intrigued now.
Orton vs. Sheamus and Miz vs. Lawler later, non title.
Ted DiBiase vs. Santino Marella
Wow DiBiase has fallen a good bit this year. DiBiase gets his following clothesline for two early on. Lawler blames Maryse for the losses that DiBiase has had recently. DiBiase misses a dropkick and Santino rolls him up to win this in a minute flat. This isn't a surprise somehow.
Santino Marella b. Ted DiBiase @ 1:00 – Rollup after a missed dropkick
Santino presents Tamina with her gift, and it's a cobra. Better than his dick in a box I guess. Maryse and Ted jump them so Tamina and Santino hit matching salute splashes and Cobras to clear the ring. I use the term hit loosely in her case.
Miz tells Riley that he's going to teach Morrison a lesson tonight. Miz says not to win but destroy him. Lawler is going to beg for mercy tonight too. Morrison pops up and says if he beats Riley, he gets to pick the stipulation and the date of their title match. If Riley wins then Morrison loses his #1 contender spot. Miz says deal.
