Notes: They were selling signed copies of the John Cena Experience DVD...Although they mentioned the Survivor Series would be the next card here, they never plugged the date, instead pushing tomorrow's house show at the Prudential Center and the June Raw taping....Betty Skaaland, the widow of Arnold Skaaland, was sitting in the front row. Both Triple H and John Cena embraced her when they saw her....Names advertised that did not appear were The Usos....Orton vs. Miz was advertised for months as a Best of Three Falls match. Obviously, that did not happen....Overall, a solid house show.
