After a 15-minute intermission, we were treated to an Epico and Primo vs. Great Khali and Sin Cara bout. As you might imagine, Sin Cara did most of the heavy lifting for his team, as Khali contributed chops, clotheslines, and not much else. Sin Cara looked fantastic, though, especially against Primo. Those two had an obvious chemistry which made for some great spots, including Sin Cara turning a powerbomb attempt into a sunset flip/powerbomb combo of his own. Quite the move. Eventually, Khali was able to Hand Chop Epico, followed up by a Hornswoggle splash off the top rope. Sin Cara then tagged in and hit Primo with a senton bomb off the top rope for the win. Afterward, Sin Cara, Natalya, Khali and Hornswoggle posed for the crowd.
After that was a non-title match between Wade Barrett and Sheamus. Barrett got some good heat by calling Greenville "a hellholle." Sheamus got a huge reaction from the crowd, and that continued throughout the match. As you can guess, this was a very physical matchup with plenty of offense. Barrett looked good, delivering a lot of power moves to Sheamus. Sheamus returned the favor with the Irish Curse backbreaker and White Noise. As Barrett went for the Bull Hammer, Sheamus caught him with a Brogue Kick for the 1-2-3.
The main event was a World Heavyweight Title match between Alberto Del Rio and Big Show. It was decided via fan vote that it would be a No DQ match. Big Show came out to some loud boos. Del Rio got a good reaction, though it wasn't on the level of Orton or Sheamus. The No DQ stipulation didn't take long to come into play as both men used weapons. At this point, ECU turned into ECW as fans began chanting "we want (insert weapon here)" to which Del Rio and Big Show obliged. Chairs, tables, and kendo sticks all came out, which made for a pretty thrilling match. Del Rio played to the crowd very well, getting several "Si! Si! Si!" chants going. Finally, after Big Show set up a table and attempted to jump off the second rope onto Del Rio, the champ was able to give Big Show a bulldog through the table after Ricardo Rodriguez hit show with a microphone. This maneuver was enough to give him the win. Del Rio and Rodriguez then thanked the audience for coming and celebrated up the walkway.
