Another "1/2/12" promo saying that the end of the world as you know it ends... NOW! The lights go out in the arena and there is a loud "Y2J" chant. Chris Jericho is on the top of the ramp with a Michael Jackson-like jacked with bulbs on it and his music hits.
Jericho enters the ring and is giddy to be back and slaps hands with fans at ringside. Loud "Y2J" chants. I sense a heel turn coming... Jericho keeps acting giddy as the fans chant "Welcome Back!" Jericho keeps milking the reaction from the crowd, he's definitely turning heel. Fans are starting to boo. Jericho spends the next several minutes playing to the crowd. This is pretty funny. Jericho drops the mic and continues celebrating in the ring. Jericho goes back running around the ring slapping hands. The fans are finally starting to turn against him. Jericho stands at the top of the ramp as the fans start booing before heading to the back.
WrestlingInc.com reader Logan Sekulow texted me that someone was escorted under the ring, likely Kane.
It's main event time!
The ring introductions are done and it is announced that Kane will not be competing, so the match is now a handicap match.
Big Show and Mark Henry were eliminated after fighting to a double couent out. So we're down to Cena and Ryder vs. Swagger. Shortly after, Cena nailed Swagger with an AA to get the win for his team.
After the match, Kane's pyro hit again and Cena walked up the ramp to confront him. Kane came out from under the ring and beat up Ryder before turning his attention to Cena. Kane smothered Cena outside of the ring, leaving him unconscious. He then turned his attention back to Ruder in the ring. Ryder tried to run but Kane grabbed him and then dragged him under the ring. Cena got back in the ring and pulled Ryder out. Flames burst out from the hole in the ring and Kane's music played while Cena looked freaked out to end the show.
