Wade Barrett defeated Justin Gabriel (Intercontinental Championship)
Barrett actually got a mixed reaction before cutting a short heel promo to get some heat. Gabriel came out to a moderate pop. They went 11 minutes of fast paced action before Gabriel went for a springboard and took a Bull Hammer for the loss.
Randy Orton defeated Big Show
Show actually came out to a face pop, but Orton's was considerably louder (and female-led). They went 11 minutes in a standard match. The only spot even remotely worth noting was that Orton's rope-hung ddt came with Show hung on the top rope instead of the middle. Orton got the win with an RKO after ducking under a WMD, which my brother called exactly literally less than a minute before it happened.
Overall, it was a decent show, if a predictable one. The only result that surprised me a little was the DiBiase/Graves match, simply cause I thought they might give the young up-and-comer the win over a guy whose stock has fallen as far as DiBiase's has.
