Show calls for the chokeslam, but he can't get Henry up. Henry picks up Show and connects with the World's strongest slam, but when Henry goes for the pin, Show kicks out. Henry hits a big splash, and goes for the pin, but again Show kicks out at two.
Henry hits Show with a big elbow drop to the heart, but Show still will not go down for a three count. Now we're getting an 'Undertaker' chant from the crowd who only seem to want to amuse themselves. Henry sends Show to the outside and follows, ramming him hard into the ring post.
Henry psychs himself up, then charges Big Show, should tackling him through the barricade, and now the crowd is actually reacting to something happening in the match. Henry rolls back into the ring and tries to wait out Show while he's counted out. Show is able to struggle back into the ring at 8. Henry sends Show right back out to the apron, stands him up, and hits him with a couple of big head butts. Henry starts going up to the top, but Show fights him off and pushes Henry away. Show hits Henry with a (sort of) superkick, and now the crowd's chanting for 'HBK'.
Big Show goes all the way to the top, looking really apprehensive. Show steadiest himself on the top rope. Show goes all the way to the top and launches himself off with a HUGE elbow drop. Show drapes his arm over Henry, but Henry kicks out at two!
Now we're getting a 'Randy Savage' chant, awesome. Show goes for the WMD, but Henry ducks it and hits Show with a blatant low blow right in front of the referee. Henry is DQ'd, and this one is over.
Winner via disqualification: Big Show
STILL World Heavyweight Champion: Mark Henry
After the match, Henry goes to the outside and grabs a chair. Henry scares away the ref, and wraps the chair around Big Show's ankle. Show is able to move before Henry comes crashing down on top, and Henry falls to the mat. Show is up, and when Henry gets up, Show meets him with the WMD to put down the Champion. The crowd, of course, chants for Daniel Bryan following the WMD. Show pauses, then looks over at the chair. Show takes the chair and wraps it around Henry's ankle. Show drops a leg on the chair, crunching down on Henry's ankle. The Champ grabs his ankle and screams in pain.
We go backstage with Wade Barrett talking to Matt Striker about winning earlier. The Miz and R-Truth walk up and ask, really? Barrett gets some words in and walks off. Truth rants about John Cena and The Rock getting all the attention. Miz calls Rock and Cena a load of crap. Truth says crap is crap and tonight, crap gone get got before they walk off.
- We get a video package that details the history between CM Punk and Del Rio over the past few months, leading into our next match.
- Alberto Del Rio (c) vs. CM Punk.
Ricardo Rodriguez is out first to introduce the WWE Champion. Del Rio comes out to the ring in a beautiful Aston Martin red convertible (not the most practical choice for NYC in November).
The crowd is chanting for Punk before Del Rio's music even hits. Apparently, Punk has a personal ring announcer for the evening as well, WWE Hall of Famer, Howard Finkel. The Fink makes his way out from the back to a big pop from the crowd. The crowd is actually chanting for the Fink! Howard finally makes the announcement, and it's amazing! Punk comes out to a huge pop from the crowd. Punk shakes hands and gives a little hug to Fink before heading down to the ring.
