Kofi Kingston and Evan Bourne vs. David Otunga and Michael Mcgillicutty
Lawler spent the match burying Otunga and Mcgillicutty and talking about how they were boring. Kingston nailed Otunga with a kick and Bourne followed with Air Bourne to pin Otunga and win the WWE tag team championships! The crowd actually popped big for this.
Sheamus vs. Mark Henry is advertised for this Friday's SmackDown.
Josh Mattthews interviews Kofi and Bourne backstage. Titus O'Neil and Zack Ryder pour champagne on the new champs.
John Lauranitis approaches HHH backstage and tells The Game that Nash has been in a car accident and is in a local hospital. HHH asks Lauranitis if he can cover for him and leaves to go to the hospital.
Back from break, and Santino Marella's music hits. As he's heading to the ring, he's attacked from behind by R-Truth and The Miz. The take the assault inside the ring and beat the hell out of him, including hitting their finishers. Miz and Truth take separate mics. Truth asks the fans if they saw what happened with Little Jimmy and it's going to happen every time. He said that he's been saying that there's been a conspiracy between HHH, Stephanie, Nash, Punk and Cena are all in on it, and they sit around a conspiracy table and conspire. He said that he used to main event PPVs, but now it's no longer about he or Miz.
Miz agrees with Truth and says that there is a conspiracy in WWE. Miz noted that he beat Cena in the main event of WrestleMania 27, but then HHH takes over and he has to pick a fight with Jarod from Subway just to do something. Miz said that he's sick of guys like Santino, who hasn't won a match in 5 years, and that he and Truth are going to take any and all opportunities that come their way. Truth said that sooner or later some people are gonna get got. I do like the dynamic with these two. Truth started singing new lyrics to his music, yelling "You Suck" to the crowd instead of "What's Up" and sang his song with new lyrics. Good segment until the song.
Punk and Cena are shown walking to the ring as we head to commercial.
John Lauranitis and Alberto Del Rio are sitting at ringside. Ross, Cole and Lawler recap the Nash/hospital angle.
Cena threw his shirt in the crowd, and someone in the crowd threw it back at him ala ECW One Night Stand years ago. For some reason, Lawler buried Punk throughout the match, saying that Punk was "not that good" and the Del Rio would rather face Punk since he's easier to beat. Unless Lawler sent the text, it's strange that he would bury the guy that they're trying to push, so there must be a reason for it.
Crowd was hot for this match, as the fans at ringside are going nuts. Really good match. Both men kicked out of each other's finishers. At the end of the match, Punk called for the GTS. As he went for it, Nash came to the ramp and yelled on the mic that it wasn't over between them. Nash headed to the ring, which distracted Punk allowing Cena to nail him with the AA and get the win.
Del Rio immediately attacked Cena after the match. Del Rio got on top of Cena and stared landing a flurry of punches before being separated by Lauranitis and the referee. Del Rio went back on the attack, and was separated again. Del Rio went on the attack again, and took the assault out of the ring. Del Rio threw Cena into the ringside barrier and then walked away as the show went off the air.
