Tonight's show begins with the opening video and the pyro display; Josh Mathews welcomes us to the show. Michael Cole says Sheamus and Randy Orton will Face Alberto Del Rio and Dolph Ziggler. We are in Philadelphia, PA.
We go to the ring and Lilian Garcia introduces WWE Hall of Famer, Edge. Edge takes in the nice reception and says it never gets old. He says it's been 18 months since he's been forced to retire. He plugs his show Haven and says he has been able to start watching WWE as a fan. He says he's never seen anything like this: he sends to a video of Daniel Bryan and Kane hugging, then arguing, from RAW. Edge is interrupted by Bryan.
Bryan comes to the ring and starts to do his "I am the tag team champions" routine. The crowd starts chanting, "Yes!" and Bryan does some breathing exercises. Bryan brings up Edge's ex-wife, Vickie Guerrero. Bryan starts to psychoanalyze Edge a la Dr. Shelby. He tells Edge to go back to acting. He says there is nothing anyone can do to make him snap. The crowd chants and Edge looks amused.
Edge says that was not his intention but he takes that as a challenge. Edge lures him into a "Yes-No" battle and Bryan starts to go-off as Kane's pyro goes off and he comes to the ring.
Kane and Bryan start bickering and Edge has to call them off. Kane says Edge seems angry, which draws laughs from the crowd. Kane and Bryan tell him about Dr. Shelby's relaxation exercises; Bryan squeezes an imaginary ball in his hand. Edge tells Kane he can understand the vegan acting like this but Kane is the Big Red Machine, not "Barney the Big Red Dinosaur." Edge reminds Kane of all they've been through. He says, "I stole your wife." Kane says he remembers all of that and he needs to rectify the situation right now. He gets in Edge's face and Edge takes off his jacket. Kane outstretches his arms and Edge looks perturbed. Edge slowly goes in for the hug.
Bryan gets jealous and starts chanting, "No!" Kane and Edge invite him in for a group hug. Bryan's face is priceless as he goes in for the hug, as Damien Sandow's music hits. Sandow begs our indulgence and cuts an intellectual promo about the Kane-Bryan angle and berates the crowd. Priceless! Edge tells him to shut up. Edge invites him in the ring to do something about it. Sandow says he's a man of intellect. Edge polls the crowd in a "Yes-No" fiasco as we go to commercial.
Damien Sandow vs. Kane
Bryan is seated at ringside. Sandow gets caught with a big boot. Sandow retaliates and Kane no-sells. Sandow retreats but Kane brings him back in. Sandow sees an opening and puts the boots to Kane in the corner but Kane drops him in a sidewalk slam. Kane hits 2 clotheslines in the corner and another side slam for 2. Kane goes up top and delivers a knife-hand strike to the throat. Kane calls for the chokeslam but Bryan gets on the apron with both title belts and they bicker. Sandow attacks Kane from behind and hits his finisher for the win.
Winner by pin: Damien Sandow
Bryan backs up the ramp with both title belts.
Cole and Josh talk about the Susan G. Komen campaign and send to the video. We go to commercial.
Kane is frantically looking for Kane in the back as he tears things up. He runs into Dr. Shelby who tells him to calm down. Kane says if Bryan doesn't give his title back, he will pull out his goat beard piece-by-piece. Bryan appears from a chest and says he does not have a goat-face. They argue like children and Dr. Shelby calls them off. He makes Kane promise not to tear out Bryan's beard if he gives back his title. Bryan gives him the belt and Kane says Bryan still caused him to lose. Shelby asks if Bryan also has a match tonight, would that make him feel better. With a pout-face, Kane says, "It just might." I can't believe I just typed that.
Josh and Cole send to a video of the Brogue Kick situation.
We go to Booker's office where Del Rio is already waiting with Booker's book in his hands. Booker walks in and asks what he is doing in his office. Del Rio has a problem with Booker reinstating the Brogue Kick right before his match. Booker says maybe it was unfair but Del Rio has to earn another shot. Booker makes the match that they have already been promoting all night. Del Rio says this is not over. Booker says it is and shows him the door. Del Rio throws the book down as he backs out.
Eve comes to the ring as we go to commercial.
Layla vs. Natalya
Layla gets preoccupied with Eve at the announce table and Natalya takes control of her. Cole asks Eve if she had anything to do with Kaitlyn's injuries. She denies it. Layla counters Natalya with a neckbreaker and gets the win.
Winner by pin: Layla
We go to another commercial.
The introductions for our next match take place, then we go to commercial.
Sheamus & Randy Orton vs. Alberto Del Rio & Dolph Ziggler
Del Rio and Sheamus are already mixing it up as we return. Sheamus takes control with a swinging neck breaker, gets 2 and tags Orton. Orton hits a dropkick and gets 2. Orton tags Sheamus back in and he sends Del Rio in but misses in the corner. Del Rio capitalizes. Sheamus hits a rolling Senton slam. He is distracted by Ricardo on the apron and Ziggler comes in to steal a strike on him. Ziggler legally comes in and resumes offense. Del Rio tags back in and Sheamus manages a slam as he gathers his bearings and tags the Viper. Del Rio bumps around for Orton signature offense. Orton hits his patented DDT and then coils-up. Ziggler runs in and gets an Orton powerslam. Del Rio hits a Backstabber from behind on Orton and gets 2. Ziggler tags in and punishes Orton.
Orton works up from a headlock and side slams Ziggler. Orton reaches for the tag but Del Rio tags in and runs to intercept. Orton dropkicks Del Rio off the top and Del Rio falls to the floor at Ricardo's feet. Ricardo helps him back in and he makes the tag to Ziggler just as Orton makes the hot-tag to Sheamus. Ziggler ducks a Brogue Kick but gets hit with the Irish Curse; Del Rio breaks the count. Orton comes in and delivers the RKO to Del Rio. Ziggler procures his briefcase but Sheamus hits him with the Brogue Kick for the win.
Winners by pin: Randy Orton & Sheamus
Sheamus and Orton embrace in the ring and celebrate as we go to commercial.
We're back with a look at the outside of the arena as we see footage of what led to the next match.
Cody Rhodes vs. Daniel Bryan
Cody comes out and Bryan is already in the ring. Cody takes a decided advantage. Bryan turns it up with nice offense but he is preoccupied with the fans. He applies the No Lock as Kane's pyro goes off and he comes on the stage and makes the pyro at the ring corners to go off. Cody hits the Cross Rhodes from behind for the win.
Winner by pin: Cody Rhodes
Kane laughs on the stage as Bryan holds his neck on the mat and screams, "NO!" We go to commercial.
Daniel Bryan looks for Kane in the back. Kane shows up, laughing. Kane says they're even. Bryan says Kane belongs in a basement. Kane says Bryan belongs in a petting zoo. They bicker and look over at Cody and Sandow in the corner and ask what they are looking at. Cody says it's clear that their being the tag champs is a joke. Sandow chimes in and says, "This trivial experiment is about to come to a combustible conclusion." Kane and Bryan challenge them to a match, "tonight!" in unison.
We go to a recap video of the CM Punk-John Cena situation. Josh gives us news on Cena's surgery. We go to the ring for Brodus Clay's full entrance and then to commercial.
The Funkadactyls are still dancing as we return and Heath Slater is introduced.
Brodus Clay vs. Heath Slater
Clay does some gyrations. Slater plays his air-guitar and shoves Clay. Clay slams him and mocks the air-guitar. Clay hits a running knee and catches Slater for a fall-away slam. Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre come in and attack Clay from behind. Slater joins-in as The Funkadactyls helplessly look-on and some little girl keeps screaming at the top of her lungs. The men hit their finishers on Clay complete with the Camel Clutch. Slater raises the men's arms and they take a bow. We go to commercial.
We're back and Cole reminds us that he will interview Jerry Lawler this Monday on RAW.
Santino vs. Antonio Cesaro
Cesaro takes control with uppercuts and slams Santino with ease. Santino takes over with strikes and an armdrag & headbutt. Santino pulls out the Cobra but the Cobra is literally drawn to Aksana on the apron. Cesaro pulls the sock off Santino's arm and throws it. Aksana reaches in the ring for it but she loses her balance when Cesaro bounces off the ropes and she falls into the ring. The ref tends to her as Cesaro hits his impressive uppercut finisher and covers Santino. Cesaro gets the ref's attention and makes Aksana hop out of the ring as she sells her ankle. Santino rolls up the U.S. Champ from behind and gets the win.
Winner by pin: Santino
Santino celebrates like he just won the title. Aksana sells her injury on the outside as Cesaro holds his head in disbelief in the ring. Cesaro grabs his title and a mic and gets out of the ring by Aksana and says he's thinking something in 5 different languages: "We're finished!" He storms off as she pleads for him to come back. She says, "Why me?" which barely makes air as the camera fades to black; and with her holding her leg, appears to be a Nancy Kerrigan reference. We go to commercial.
We're back and we get an exclusive look at Edge on Haven.
The Uso's, The Prime Time Players, and Tyson Kidd & Justin Gabriel are surrounding the ring. Cody and Sandow are already in the ring. Bryan is introduced and he tears a fan's sign as he comes to the ring. Kane comes out.
Kane & Daniel Bryan vs. Cody Rhodes & Damien Sandow
Cody starts things off with Kane. Kane takes the lead as Cody tags Sandow to escape. Kane brings Sandow in the hard way. Kane takes it to Sandow. Bryan tags himself in and he and Kane bicker as Cody also tags in and gets some No Kicks from Bryan. Bryan teases a tag to Kane and they have another No-Yes session. Rhodes capitalizes and sends Bryan into Kane, knocking him off the apron, and hits the Disaster Kick on Bryan for 2. Sandow attacks Kane on the outside and runs on the apron to tag in. He quickly tags Cody back in and Cody continues to keep Bryan down.
Cody and Bryan collide in the middle of the ring with a double crossbody. Bryan tags Kane who unloads on a fresh Sandow. Kane hits a DDT and a chokeslam on Sandow. Cody hits Kane from behind with a chair and the bell rings. Cody goes for another hit but Bryan grabs the chair out of his hands. Bryan goes to hit Cody with it but offers the chair to Kane who clocks Cody with it and he rolls to the outside. Bryan gets in the ring with another chair and they take turns relentlessly unloading on Sandow's back. Wow! Kane attacks the teams at ringside and brings them all in for chair-shots. Kane and Bryan lay waste to them all. Kane grabs the belts and hands one to Bryan and they stand tall in the ring. The ring is littered with bodies. They start to bicker as we fade to black.
