Kelly Kelly (c) pinned Beth Phoenix
Phoenix is upset in the middle of the ring as Kelly celebrated with Eve to the back.
The WWE Championship match is up next.
A cool video is shown of world champions of the past to this slow Spanish music. The tempo picks up and shows Del Rio winning the title, Cena wanting the belt, etc.
Ricardo Rodriguez is introduced to introduce Del Rio. Before he can be introduced, Del Rio storms to the ring and asks Rodriguez where his keys are. Cena's music comes out and he drives to the stage in Del Rio's yellow Ferrari.
Before the introductions take place, Del Rio takes the mic and asks Ricardo to introduce him in Spanish, which he does. Cena is then about to be introduced, but Cena takes the mic as a "Cena Sucks" chant breaks out. Cena says that he hates how Del Rio thinks he's better than everyone. Cena then said that he stole Del Rio's Ferrari and asked him how it felt. Cena said he doesn't have his own ring announcer, but he'll give it a shot and introduces himself, even referring to himself as "the king of Fruity Pebbles." He is... he then gives the mic to Justin Roberts who finishes the intro.
Alberto Del Rio (c) vs. John Cena
Loud dueling "Let's Go Cena/Cena Sucks" chants early on. Ricardo Rodriguez is booted from ringside early on. Del Rio took the early advantage and stretched Cena early on. He nailed Cena with a kick to the kidneys and cinched in a chinlock.
Del Rio stayed in charge, using his kicks as his weapon of choice. Everytime Cena was able to keep something going, Del Rio would regain control.
Later in the match, Cena gained control and his the five knuckle shuffle and went for the AA, but Del Rio slid out and hit the backstabber for a two count. He went for the cross arm breaker, but Cena countered and nailed Del Rio with a dropkick for a two count.
Cena went to the top rope but Del Rio popped up and nailed him with a kick, and got another two count. Del Rio went for another kick and missed, and Cena tried to lock in the STF but Del Rio got out and hit Cena with a backbreaker for another two count. Del Rio got Cena upside down on the turnbuckle and then charged at Cena, but Cena sat up and Del Rio rammed his shoulder in the steel post. That sounded nasty. Cena hit a legdrop from the top rope onto the back of the head Del Rio, but Del Rio kicked out.
Moments later Del Rio hit a german suplex for a two count. Del Rio then pulled Cena towards a corner and climbed to the top rope and hit a splash for another two count. Del Rio is frustrated and applied the cross arm breaker. Cena fought it and lifted Del Rio up and planted him with a powerslam, a la Davey Boy Smith with Shawn Michaels. Cena hit the AA out of nowhere. Rodriguez came back, but was quickly dispatched. Cena locked in the STF. Del Rio fought it, but finally was forced to tap. Good match, but it seems strange to have Del Rio lose the title so quickly.
John Cena pinned Alberto Del Rio (c) to become the NEW WWE Champion.
Cena celebrated after the match and joked to Booker T how he was a 10-time, 10-time, 10-time champion.
CM Punk's music hit and he got a big pop. He then went to the ring with a new T-Shirt depicting him on a WWE ice cream bar. Michael Cole is losing his voice. He entered the ring to "CM Punk" chants. He sat in the ring for several moments before Triple H's music hit.
