Back from break and Vickie Guerrero and Dolph Ziggler are on commentary bickering as Alex Riley makes his way to the ring.
Alex Riley vs. Jack Swagger
The story of the match was Guerrero and Ziggler bickering on commentary. Ziggler did show a lot of personality on commentary, though. Late in the match, Guerrero took Ross' hat and wore it and wore it. She then got on the ring apron and put the hat on the referee, and the ref ordered her to get away. Swagger took advantage of the assist and went for the gut-wrench powerbomb. He had difficulty getting Riley up but ended up eventually hitting it. One of the weakest assists I've seen. After the match, Ziggler stomped on JR's hat and handed it back to him.

Alberto Del Rio vs. Rey Mysterio
Loud 619 chants to start. Del Rio beat Mysterio clean after Mysterio hit a 619 and went for the top rope splash, but Del Rio got his knees up and rolled Mysterio up to get the pin.
After the match, Del Rio continued to punish Mysterio and worked his arm over. Del Rio applied the cross arm-breaker and John Cena eventually made the save and Del Rio ran off. Cena took the mic and said that he has a bunch of reasons he could be pissed off like HHH, but he's pissed off at a scumbag like Del Rio for stealing the title after he and Punk had a war. Cena said Del Rio's not a champion, he's a target and that the belt makes every single person he knows his enemy. He said Punk earned the right to be called champ while Del Rio got lucky. Cena said if Del Rio defends against him, he won't be lucky and his destiny is John Cena whipping his ass. Del Rio left as the show went off the air.
