Winner: Layla - Michelle McCool is forced to leave the WWE
Both McCool and Layla are crying as Layla slides out of the ring and makes her way to the back.
McCool is bawling in the ring as the crowd sings the Goodbye song. Strange music hits, and Kharma makes her WWE debut!
Kharma makes her way out to the ring, and she's got some new ring gear for her big debut. She's got a steely look on her face as she slowly makes her way to the ring. Kharma makes her way up to the ring apron and McCool begins to beg. Kharma finally makes her way into a WWE ring for the first time. McCool tries to escape, but Kharma grabs her, and plants her with whatever the WWE is going to call the implant buster. Kharma laughs maniacally before stopping abruptly. The Diva's locker room is shown looking on in stunned silence.
- Ricardo Rodriguez is shown backstage, practicing announcing Del Rio as the new World Heavyweight Champion, but Del Rio makes him say it again as he's not quite satisfied.
World Heavyweight Championship
Christian vs. Alberto Del Rio
We get a video package detailing Edge's retirement with the World Heavyweight Championship, and the race to find a new Champion for Smackdown.
The title is shown handing above the ring, and ladders are set up around the ring, and all over the entrance ramp. Tony Chimel announces Del Rio's personal ring announcer, who then in turn announces Del Rio, who makes his way out in a beautiful Maserati.
Christian is the next man out to the ring, and he gets on of the strongest reactions I've heard throughout the night.
The bell rings, and we're ready to kick off my most anticipated match of the night!
Christian comes out first with a couple of blows to Del Rio's head, and Del Rio responds with a big kick. Christian puts Del Rio down with a big shoulderblock, but Del Rio is quick to come right back and he slams Christian down to the mat. When Del Rio attempts to go to the outside Christian stops him, and chokes him on the top ring rope before sending him across the ring and back body dropping him. Christian goes to the middle rope and launches himself off directly into Del Rio. Christian goes to the outside and grabs a ladder, but Del Rio stops him, slamming him into the ring post and kicking at his head instead. Del Rio rolls Christian under the ring apron.
Del Rio grabs a ladder, but Christian comes out of the other side of the ring, and through the ring, hitting Del Rio (and the ladder) with a big baseball slide. Christian brings the ladder back into the ring and sets it up right under the belt. Christian begins climbing the ladder but Del Rio pulls Christian's foot off of the rungs and Christian crashes down into the mat. Del Rio begins the climb himself, but Christian tips the ladder over. Del Rio sees it comes, lands on his feet and comes up with a big kick to Christian's head. Del Rio stomps and chokes Christian with his boot.
Christian is able to come back with a low kick before back body dropping Del Rio to the outside. Christian grabs the ladder, but Del Rio grabs his feet from the outside of the ring and causes Christian to crash face first into the ladder. Del Rio pull Christian to the outside, slamming him head first into the ring steps before propping a ladder up between the announcer's table and the ring apron. Del Rio tries to suplex Christian into the ladder but Christian fights it off. Christian tries to slingshot Del Rio into the ladder but Del Rio avoids it. Del Rio sends Christian speeding toward the ladder, but Christian ducks. Christian hangs Del Rio up on the ladder and goes to the top rope, but Del Rio knocks him off. Christian is able to land on a ladder on the outside and jumps off with a cross body, taking Del Rio out.
