Santino Marella vs. Alberto Del Rio
We go to the ring and out comes the WWE United States Champion Santino Marella. Ricardo Rodriguez begins the introduction for Alberto Del Rio and out he comes for a non-title match. Del Rio's car wasn't allowed in the building because of the fire that happened earlier.
The bell rings and they go at it until Del Rio drops Santino and works him over, taking control. Santino fights back but Del Rio suplexes him and stomps some more. Del Rio with kicks in the corner now. Santino makes a comeback and sends Del Rio out to the floor with a dropkick. We go to commercial.
Back from the break and Del Rio is working on the arm. Santino fights out of a hold and tries for a comeback but gets beat back down. Del Rio goes back to work on the arm now. Santino fights out with a suplex and then right hands. Santino drops with the split but Del Rio kicks him in the head. Santino comes back again and pulls out the Cobra. Del Rio blocks it and throws Santino shoulder first into the ring post. Del Rio with an armbreaker and then the submission for the win.
Winner: Alberto Del Rio
- After the match, Del Rio stands over Santino and says he just destroyed the US Champion like it was nothing. Del Rio says Santino is beneath him as is Sheamus and all of the fans. Del Rio says from now on, he will not compete unless it's a World Heavyweight Title match so he says he won't be wrestling until SummerSlam.
- Still to come, Cena vs. Show.
- Back from the break and Brodus Clay is in the ring dancing with Cameron and Naomi. Vickie Guerrero comes out running her mouth. She tells them to step aside and has some old school hip-hop played. Vickie starts dancing but is interrupted by Damien Sandow. Sandow says a horrible crime was committed against humanity last week. He shows us footage of DX beating him up at RAW 1000. Sandow just attacks Clay and takes his leg out. Sandow beats Clay down and hits him with a bunch of knees. Sandow continues the assault and rips Clay's necklace. Sandow poses as his music hits and Cole plays up the fact that Sandow has snapped.
- We get a look back at Dolph Ziggler and Chris Jericho getting into it 2 weeks ago. They also show Ziggler teasing a cash in on SmackDown and Jericho throwing him into the ring for a Brogue Kick from Sheamus. Jericho then hit Ziggler with a Codebreaker, while wearing a Ziggler t-shirt. Announced for later tonight is Christian and Jericho vs. Miz and Ziggler. Back to commercial.
- Back from commercial and Bryan walks into AJ's office. He asks her if she's insane for embarrassing him and leaving him at the altar last week. She tells him to shut up. She's not his bride to be anymore... she's his boss. AJ says she saw some "groomsmen" who looked like they were from a mental hospital. She wonders if he was marrying her just to have her legally committed. She's booked him in a match against Sheamus tonight. Bryan asks if it's for the World Title and she says no. AJ chants "no" in Bryan's face and he storms off.
