Henry scoffs at Bryan saying that he'll be champ, and says that he should be ashamed for attacking a defenseless man. Henry said Teddy Long should be ashamed for booking him for tomorrow's match when he's partially injured. He said that he will defend his title tomorrow in a steel cage, and no matter what, Bryan can't beat him. Bryan ran up the stage and kicked Henry in the leg before heading to the back.

CM Punk (c) vs. Alberto Del Rio
Cool spot late in the match where the ref had his back turned and Del Rio threw a steel chair at Punk. Punk threw it back at Del Rio and then laid in the ring, acting like he was hit by it, ala Eddie Guerrero. The referee was going to DQ Del Rio, but Punk rolled Del Rio up and got two.
Moments later, Del Rio exposed the top turnbuckle. Del Rio went to throw Punk into the exposed turnbuckle, but Punk reversed and got Del Rio up for the GTS, only to throw him head first into the exposed turnbuckle. Punk then covered Del Rio to get the win.
After the match, Ricardo Rodriguez argued with the referee. Punk grabbed him and gave him a GTS for good measure.
