Ryback (formerly Skip Sheffield) defeated JTG by pinfall.
Beth Phoenix retained the Divas Championship against Nikki Bella in an entertaining match. Both Divas worked hard in this one. Beth received a decent pop when she set up the Glam Slam for the victory.
Primo & Epico w/ Rosa retained the Tag Team Championship against Mason Ryan & Alex Riley (Ryan and Santino were actually advertised). Some Batista chants when Ryan was tagged into the match.
Eve Torres cut a promo apologizing for her recent actions involving Zack Ryder and John Cena. She said that John Cena took her words out of context and that Zack Ryder just fell in love with her. She said the names the crowd was calling her were hurting her, and then admitted to using Ryder. She also said that she was going to use Cena, too. The crowd chanted "Hoeski" at her, and she stormed off.
R-Truth pinned The Miz in a good match. Lots of heat on Miz when he cut a promo insulting the fans and Truth prior to the match.
Jack Swagger retained the United States Championship against Santino Marella. Lots of comedy here from Santino. Swagger retained after hitting the gut-wrench powerbomb. After the match, Santino nailed Swagger with the Cobra.
Chris Jericho pinned Kofi Kingston after a Codebreaker in a great match. Crowd was hot for this one.
David Otunga appeared and informed everyone that John Laurinaitis is appointing Chris Jericho, who had just defeated Kingston, as the outside enforcer for the main event triple threat match for the WWE Championship.
CM Punk retained the WWE Championship against Kane and Dolph Ziggler. Punk hit the GTS on Ziggler for the win. Jericho received plenty of heat from the crowd when he refused to count for Punk when the assigned referee was knocked out of the ring. The assigned referee eventually made the count.
