Sheamus pinned Christian
The Sin Cara vs. Sin Cara feud has killed the heat the Sin Cara had as there was no reaction to his entrance. Sin Cara (black mask) made his way to the ring with a slower, creepier version of Cara's original theme.
Sin Cara (Blue mask - Mistico) vs. Sin Cara (Black mask - Hunico)
Crowd is silent early on. Hunico dominated the early portion of the match with his size advantage. They then traded hitting the other with their signature moves. Mistico then hit a cool high flying armdrag to send Hunico to the outside, and followed up with a dive from the inside of the ring. He missed a moonsault outside the ring, and Hunico regained the advantage.
Later in the match, Mistico missed a flying splash from the top rope, but rolled through it and then hit a flip-powerbomb and won the match clean. Good match with some cool spots, hurt by the lack of crowd reaction.

David Otunga, complete with Harvard vest and bowtie, approached CM Punk backstage and told him that he would like to represent him if he wins the title tonight. Punk said he would win the title, and kicked Otunga out, stating that he "hated lawyers."
Air-Boom's music hits, and the tag title match is next.
Vickie Guerrero comes to the stage and introduces Jack Swagger and Dolph Ziggler.
WWE Tag Team Championship Match
Evan Bourne & Kofi Kingston (c) vs. Dolph Ziggler & Jack Swagger
The faces got the early advantage. The heels took over, but Bourne made a hot tag to Kofi. Kofi then charged at the ropes, but Swagger pulled down the middle rope causing Kofi to crash to the outside, allowing the heels to regain the advantage.
Swagger and Ziggler worked Kofi in their corner, making quick tags and garnering several two counts in the process. Kofi was finally able to make the hot tag to Bourne, who cleaned house on the heels. Bourne nailed Ziggler with knees from the top rope and got a near fall. He then hit a standing moonsault for another two.
Swagger got in the ring and went for the ankle lock on Bourne, but Kofi broke it up with a splash from the top rope. Moments later, Swagger went to powerbomb Bourne from the top rope. Bourne reversed it into a hurricarana and got the pin while Kofi held onto Ziggler to prevent him from breaking up the count. After the match, Vickie yelled at Swagger. Another good match.

Hell in a Cell for the World Heavyweight Title:
Randy Orton vs. Mark Henry (c)
Henry made his way to the cage first and took his time entering the cell. Orton was in next, and we're off.
Orton got mostly cheers during the ring intros, while Henry was roundly booed.
Henry dominated the early portion of the match, including hitting a running powerslam and getting a two-count. Henry continued his assault outside of the ring, slamming Orton's head in the cage. Henry then grabbed the ring steps and threw them at Orton, but Orton was able to get out of the way. Henry continued to use the cage to his advantage, rubbing Orton's face in the steel and slamming him into the cage.
