Wade Barrett is the first man from his team to make his way down to the ring. I can't tell if it's the new layout of the arena, or what, but this crowd seems pretty subdued for an NYC crowd. Jack Swagger is out next, and he too gets a pretty poor reaction.
Ziggler is the third man out for his team, saying 'oh, I'm gonna follow me' on his way out. Hunico is out next, and the crowd are absolutely sitting on their hands. Cody Rhodes is the final man out to the ring for his team, and he gets a decent reaction from the crowd. Cody is sans mask.
Mason Ryan is out next, and the crowd don't seem too amped up for him either. Team Captain Randy Orton is the last man out for his team and he gets a really good pop from the crowd on his way to the ring.
It looks like Ziggler and Kingston will be kicking things off for their respective teams. We get a lock up and Ziggler and Kofi chain wrestle for a bit, trading holds. Ziggler hits a big shoulderblock, but when he goes for a suplex Kofi lands on his feet. Kofi goes for a kick but misses so Ziggler hits one of his own for a near fall.
Kofi goes for the SOS, but misses. Kofi gets the tag to Orton who comes in and hits an RKO, pinning and eliminating Ziggler.
Dolph Ziggler has been eliminated
Team Barrett bail to the outside to talk amongst themselves but it's broken up by Orton. Things break down and everyone is brawling. The heels are sent from the ring and Kofi and Cara go over the top at the same time. Cara's dive was nasty, not connecting well, and he looks to have gone down hurt. Trainers are checking on him and everyone seems confused as to what to do.
Justin Roberts announces Sin Cara is gone, Cole add it is because he is unable to continue.
Sin Cara is eliminated
Orton and Rhodes are in the ring, and it looks like we're finally going to continue the match. Orton kicks Cody and hits him with a nice European uppercut. Orton wrenches the arm and tags out to Ryan. Ryan comes in with a huge shoulderblock to Cody before picking him up and ramming him into the corner, repeatedly burying his shoulder in Rhodes' misdsection. Ryan goes for some kind of kick but Rhodes bails to the outside to avoid it. Barrett gives Rhodes a quick pep talk. Rhodes tags right out to Hunico. Hunico is brought into the match with a big hip toss. Ryan takes Hunico across the ring and tags in Kingston who comes in with a big stomp to Hunico.
Hunico sends Kofi into the corner hard, and this allows him to tag out to Barrett. Barrett comes in with a big punch to Kingston that puts him down for a two count. Barrett locks in a rear chin lock. Kofi fights to his feet just to be put back down for a near fall. Barrett locks in another rear chin lock. Kofi fights up to his feet and out of the hold. Both men go for and connect with clotheslines.
Hunico and Ryan tag in. Ryan hits a couple of clotheslines. Ryan catches Hunico 's cross body, and hits a couple of backbreakers and a huge fall away slam. Ryan gorilla presses Hunico. Hunico is able to get a blind tag to Rhodes who comes in and hits the beautiful disaster kick, and cross Rhodes for the three.
