-Del Rio/Sheamus recap
Alberto Del Rio comes to the ring with Ricardo Rodriguez. He wants his title match reinstated. He says he isn't leaving till he gets what he wants.
Booker T comes to the ring. He says Del Rio has been a problem for him as GM since day one. He says a man doesn't hire 5 goons and dress them as cops to beat up one man. Del Rio says he earned the #1 contender status and he has spoken to his lawyers.
Y2J's music hits and he comes to join them. He tells Del Rio to "Shut the Hell up!" and cuts a classic Y2J-style promo, berating him. He tells Del Rio his breath smells like dog poop, in Spanish. Y2J says maybe he will take the Del Rio's spot after he defeats Dolph Ziggler at SummerSlam and win the title. (Doesn't he know the World Title has been relegated to show-opener status?) Del Rio starts to argue and Booker T says Sheamus will not compete at SummerSlam. Booker says that Del Rio will face Jericho tonight.

Cody cuts a promo on his way to the ring about Sin Cara's face and mask. He shows a rendition of what Sin Cara looks like unmasked, on the Titantron. It's a cartoon picture of a rat-looking dude with big, messed up teeth. Sin Cara and Mysterio get the early one-up with high-flying off the apron. Miz and Cody isolate Sin Cara with quick tags. Cody tries to go for the mask, Sin Cara counters out of the hammerlock and tags Rey. He speeds things up with Cody. He executes a body-scissors into a bulldog but Miz breaks the cover. Sin Cara comes in and takes Miz out. Cody goes for his mask in the ropes and leaves himself in 619 territory. Then Rey goes up top and hits his splash for the win.
