Back from break as Edge makes his way to the ring. He asks the crowd to bare with him, because he may ramble a bit and not make much sense. (To which I replied, at least you're not arguing with a computer again.) He talks about that what the superstars do is very tough on their bodies. He sounds like he's getting ready to retire, though he did hint at it last year. He mentions his neck injury 8 years ago & that he's been in a lot of pain, losing feeling in his arms. He talks about taking a bunch of tests, and that the MRI results say that he has to retire, which draws a shocked reaction from the crowd. He says its not his choice (really?) and that it's the doctor's choice. He starts getting a standing ovation from the crowd. He is definitely shaking during this, emotions are clearly getting to him. The crowd claps "Thank you Edge" which almost brings a tear to Edge's face. He mentions talking to Christian and growing up watching the WWE, & being in the audience at Mania 6. He talks about Mania being his last match, and that he's retiring as the Heavyweight Champion. He also talks about his different stints & gimmicks (5 second pose), he thanks that he had a live sex celebration with Lita and not Vickie. He also talks about earning respect from everyone in the locker room & the fans. He says that if he was to be asked to do it again, he would do it in a heartbeat. He says thank you, and puts down the mic, to get a HUGE standing ovation from the crowd. A very quiet & somber roll to commercial break. I am just in total shock here... as I dry up a watery eye.
Back from break with JR on commentary. Edge is showing going backstage behind the entrance ramp, and EVERY superstar on the roster, including Dustin Rhodes aka Golddust in street clothes, are lined up for Edge, shaking hands and getting hugs for the future hall of famer. JR, Matthews, and King talk about what just happened as Miz's music hits and he comes out in street clothes to sit at commentary, with Riley in tow.
Orton is the first to come out to the ring, followed by Dolph Ziggler with Vickie in tow. They went back and forth for a while until vintage Orton hits the DDT from the second rope. He coils up, but Otunga and McGillicuty come from out of nowhere, getting on the apron to cause the distraction long enough for Ziggler to roll him up and get the pinfall.
1st Winner: Dolph Ziggler
Otunga & McGillicutty get in the ring, but Orton holds his ground until a returning Mason Ryan comes in and hits Orton with a big boot to the skull. As the New Nexus beats down on Orton, we go to another break.
Back from break as R-Truth is out next, and Ziggler gets the early control thanks to distraction from Vickie. Truth managed to make a comeback, hiting his finisher to get the pinfall over Ziggler.
2nd Winner: R-Truth
John Morrison is out next immediately after the pinfall but we have another commerical break. This one ends quickly after Morrison misses Starship Pain, which allowed Truth to hit his finisher & get the pinfall.
