They recap the Wade Barrett - Ezekiel Jackson feud.
WWE Intercontinental Championship Match
Wade Barrett (c) vs. Ezekiel Jackson
Jackson got the first major offense of the match, and worked Barrett over with power moves like forearms and punches. Jackson continued to dominate Barrett with his power and strength.
After dominating for several minutes, Barrett complained to the referee about being injured. As the ref checked on Barrett, he charged in on Jackson. Barrett then rammed Jackson shoulder first into the corner several times and went for the cover, but only got two. Barrett hit an elbow from the second rope for another two count.
Barrett stayed in control for the next several minutes. Jackson managed to land some punches to regain the advantage. Jackson nailed Barrett with several shoulder blocks and several body slams. Jackson continued to hit the body slams, landing five or six. He then got Barrett up in the torture rack, but the Corre hit the ring to end the match. Jackson was able to fight the Corre off for a bit until Barrett ambushed him with a clothesline. They beat him down for awhile and left him laying. Decent match with some sloppy moments until the crappy ending.
Ezekiel Jackson defeated Wade Barrett via disqualification.
A promo for the WrestleMania XXVII DVD aired.
CM Punk and Mason Ryan are shown backstage and they walk in on the rest of Nexus being laid out. Ryan was looking for blood when Punk said that it's ok, that it was Big Show and Kane but it should get them motivated. Ryan accused Punk of not caring for them, and Punk said he cared about them winning the tag titles. Ryan left and Punk told Otunga and McGuilicutty to "walk that off."
Sin Cara vs. Chavo Guerrero
The match was lit to be yellow and blue for this match. I'm not sure how much longer they can continue to use the special lighting for Cara's matches before it's just distracting.
Cara hit a lot of impressive high flying moves early. They went outside of the ring where it was more of the same.
When they got back in the ring, Chavo took control briefly, only for Cara to regain the advantage and land a moonsault for a two count. Chavo got the advantage back and worked Cara over with kicks and punches, and worked on Cara's left leg. It didn't last long, as Cara regained the advantage.
Cara stayed in control and continued to impress. The end of the match saw Cara botch a tilt-o-whirl and it looked like Chavo landed face-first on Cara's foot. Cara followed up with a pin and got the clean pinfall. Very impressive display of Cara's talents until the botched finisher.
Sin Cara defeated Chavo Guerrero
Todd Grisham interviewed Randy Orton and Christian backstage.
Ricardo Rodriguez is introduced, who in turn introduces Alberto Del Rio who is heading to the ring.
Del Rio cuts a promo ripping on Seattle and complaining of all the illegal immigration with Canadians. Del Rio said he's not upset that he's not in the WWE Championship match because he knows he can beat Cena. He said it's only a matter of time before he wins the title. He said destiny cannot be stopped, and he will be the next WWE Champion. The Big Show and Kane's music hit and they headed to the ring.
Kane took the mic and said that he's already angry since the rapture didn't come yesterday and said that he better exit the ring right now or he'll end up like McGillicutty and Otunga. Del Rio retreated and left the ring.
