A recap of R-Truth's feud with John Cena is shown.
Truth hit the ring as the crowd chanted "you suck." Truth blames losing to Cena on "Little Jimmy," saying he "got got by Little Jimmy." Truth continues to rant against "Jimmy's" and Christian's music hits. He says that he feels where Truth is coming from and calls the "Power to the People" a complete joke. He blames the people for losing the title to Randy Orton and horrible crowds, general managers and referees for losing the subsequent rematches. He asks Truth to watch the footage of the finish of his match with Orton, where his foot was under the ropes. He said he wants another opportunity, and Truth asks how many opportunities he's had and said he lost the title due to "little Jimmy". A "Little Jimmy" chant broke out. The Miz's music hits and he comes out to rant, calling Truth and Christian "whiners", and says that his gripes are legitimate. Christian said that Miz was just fighting his apprentice, while he and Truth were in title matches. The segment started to turn into a cheesy comedy routing when Teddy Long's music hit and he came out. Long said that Truth, Christian and Miz will team up tonight to face John Cena, Alex Riley and Randy Orton, with the people choosing the stip.
Kofi Kingston vs. Dolph Ziggler for the U.S. title with fans deciding the stip is up next.
Vickie Guerrero comes out and introduces the new U.S. Champion, Dolph Ziggler. The duo head to the ring. Kofi's in next.
The stipulations are 2 out of 3 falls, Vickie banned from ringside or a submission match. Shockingly, 2 out of 3 falls wins out.
Two-Out-Of Three Falls US Championship Match
Dolph Ziggler vs. Kofi Kingston
Kofi takes the fight to the champ right off the bat. Dolph manages to get Kofi out of the ring and gain the advantage as we head to break.
Back from commercial, and it's announced that Ziggler got the first fall during the break after hitting the Zig Zag on Kofi on the outside floor, and then bringing him in the ring to get the pin. The second fall is in progress.
Kofi wins the second fall. During the third fall, Ziggler nailed Kofi outside of the ring with a microphone to get disqualified. Ziggler loses the match but retains the title. I remember a match back in the day between Demolition and The Brain Busters. Demolition lost the second fall via DQ, and then lost the third via pinfall and they lost the WWF tag team titles.
Kofi Kingston defeated Dolph Ziggler in a two out of three falls match.
After the match, Ziggler rolled Kofi in the ring but Kofi nailed him with TIP to lay Ziggler out. The triple threat contender's match is next with fans deciding the stip.
Shawn Michaels will be on hand for RAW next week, presumably to plug his new show.
Alberto Del Rio is introduced, and he enters the ring in a white Bentley. The stips are no DQ, falls count anywhere or a submission match and that match will take place after the break.
