- We get a recap of Zack Ryder winning the WWE United States Championship earlier this evening. I didn't report it the first time around, but Ryder's father was in attendance in to see his son win the title.
- The WWE Championship is shown hanging over the ring, and it looks like we're ready for the main event of the evening. Justin Roberts is in the ring and he runs down the rules of the match quickly before sending it over to Ricardo Rodreiguez.
Ricardo is still covered in food from his run in with Miz and Del Rio earlier in the night. Del Rio makes his way out from the back, without a car, and he stares down Ricardo before taking a look at all of the tables, ladders, and chairs lining the way to the ring.
The Miz is the next man to make his way down to the ring, and he doesn't get much of a reaction out of the crowd. Miz looks at the weapons lining the entrance way briefly, but he's all business as he makes his way down to the ring fairly quickly.
The Champion himself, CM Punk, is the final man to make his way to the ring, after a little bit of a break following the Miz's music. Punk makes his way out to a nice pop from the crowd, without the title around his waist, as it's obviously hanging above the ring. Punk takes the time to duck under one of the ladders on his way to the ring.
The crowd is solidly behind CM Punk, overwhelmingly chanting for the defending champion. The bell rings and Punk attacks both men. The numbers get to Punk eventually as Del Rio and Miz team up to attack the champ. Del Rio and Miz try for a double clothesline, but Punk ducks it and hits both men with a dropkick before hitting Miz with a stiff kick to the spine. Del Rio and Punk team up again, pounding on Punk and dropping him neck first across the top rope.
Del Rio and Miz hit a double suplex before both men start simply laying the boots to Punk. Del Rio and Miz stop to stare each other down before both men make their way to the outside to procure some weapons. On their way back Del Rio catches Miz with a couple of chair shots before kicking him in the chest on the arena floor. Del Rio grabs a ladder and heads back to the ring, and Punk leaps from the ring, crashing into Del Rio as he's carrying the ladder. Punk sends Miz back into the ring and grabs a chair, following Miz. Miz attacks Punk as soon as he gets back into the ring, grabbing the chair and using it to bury in Punk's stomach. Miz tries to splash Punk in the corner but Punk movers, hitting the high knee in the corner. Punk goes for the bull dog, but Miz fights it off, hitting a belly to back suplex, dropping Punk down head first onto an open chair.
Miz goes to the outside and props a ladder up on the ring apron. He tries for the SCF on Del Rio, but Del Rio fights it off and back body drops Miz onto the ladder. Del Rio grabs the ladder and tries to bring it into the ring. Del Rio avoids a baseball slide, but Punk slides out of the ring and kicks the ladder into Del Rio's face. Punk sends Del Rio into the barricade hard. Punk tries to suplex Del Rio through a table at ringside but Del Rio fights it off. Del Rio tries for a German suplex, but Punk fights it off and hits a neckbreaker. Miz is in and attacks Punk with a chair, but when he swings for Punk's head, Punk ducks it and Miz connects with the ring post. Punk wears out Miz with the chair, hitting him with it over and over. Punk sits Miz on the barricade and sets up a chair, charging Miz and hitting him with a high knee, leaping off the chair and sending Miz crashing into the crowd.
