No Holds Barred: John Cena vs. Jack Swagger
Swagger continued to dominate Cena as we head to commercial. Back from commercial and Swagger is still in control, although Cena apparently got some offense in during the break. Swagger continued to dominate the match until the closing moments. Finally Cena hit the AA and then locked in the STF to get the submission victory.
John Cena defeated Jack Swagger via submission with the STF.
After the match, Miz took the mic and said that he should cherish the thrill of this victory because he will feel emptiness, regret and disappointment this Sunday. He said that there are a lot of ways to make Cena say he quits, and then went through the various weapons he can use on Cena this Sunday. He then said that was the obvious stuff, but that's not what he's going to use. He said that there are a million ways to beat Cena this Sunday and he found a way to beat Cena that he has never even seen before. Miz then guaranteed everyone that he will be declared the new WWE champion. Miz said while he won't use a steel pipe this Sunday, he'll use it now. He got a couple of shots in at Cena with the pipe until Cena got a hold of it and ran Miz off from the ring. Cena then told Miz to bring his million ways to beat him this Sunday because he'll need them, then said that Miz will be saying he quits this Sunday.
