Yoshi Tatsu defeated Heath Slater with a spinning heel kick to open tonight's show.
"Yes, sir, we promised you a great main event..."
We open with a video package highlighting the Rumble (of course) and the fact that the winner heads to WrestleMania for a main event match of their choosing.
The pyro hits and Michael Cole welcomes us to the Pay-Per-View. Cole lets us know that the Steel Cage match for the World Heavyweight Championship will be kicking things off tonight.
We go to the cage and out first comes the World Heavyweight Champion. Out next comes Mark Henry followed by Big Show.
The cage door is locked, and the bell rings. Bryan goes to climb the cage immediately but Henry pulls him down and Show spears him. Show goes for the cover but Henry stops it. Show hits Henry with a couple of big rights before taking him down with a running shoulder block. Henry rolls to the apron and stands up. Show splashes Henry against the cage wall, then does it again and a third time. Bryan goes to escape again but Henry pulls him down and slams him to the mat.
Show hits Bryan with a couple of punches to the gut. Bryan tries to escape again, but Show pulls him down and hits him with a huge chop. Bryan tries to chop Show, but Show shrugs it off and throws him into the cage. Show goes for the WMD but Bryan ducks and Show connects with the cage wall. Bryan kicks at Show's knees but he's taken right back down to the mat. Show tosses Bryan into the corner and splashes him, but Bryan comes right back with a huge low dropkick to Show's knee, then one to Henry's face. Bryan lays into Henry with some stiff kicks to the chest and then a big one to the head. Bryan then hits Show with a low dropkick to the face.
