Alberto Del Rio v. Heath Slater
Ricardo actually gives the intro in English and makes reference to the World Heavyweight Championship. 3MB comes out and nobody cares. The match never begins because all 3 members of 3MB attack Del Rio and Ricardo. However, because 3MB are the jobbiest of jobbers, they get tossed out of the ring. Ricardo gets on the top turnbuckle and jumps on them all outside the ring. Dolph Ziggler appears on the Titantron and tells everyone that he's been cleared to wrestle again and that he'll be at Raw.
Kane v. Ryback
Kane gets a decent pop and Ryback's ambulance intro is much cooler in person than on camera. Kane controls much of the match, even landing a chokeslam, however Ryback kicks out. Ryback actually lifts Kane over his head at one point, which looks impressive because of how large Kane is. Ryback grabs a table and brings it to the ring. The crowd chants "We Want Tables." Ryback puts Kane through a table and gets DQ'd.
A promo airs touting the 20th Anniversary of Raw. The video consists of notable catch phrases from the last two decades.
The Damien Sandow Show
Sandow cuts a hilarious promo and has a ton of people of laughing. His mic skills are out of this world. He then unveils a super computer and challenged it to a game of chess. The computer tries to talk until Sandow yells "Silence!" at it. Of all the promos and segments cut tonight, this was definitely the most entertaining non-match of the night. Sheamus comes out and tells Sandow that he can beat the computer in one move. Challenge accepted. Sheamus destroys the computer with a Brogue kick and Sandow lays out Sheamus. These guys have great chemistry.
Intercontinental Championship match for Payback is announced: Wade Barrett vs. The Miz vs. Fandango. During this, the streamers come down by the entrance ramp and the MASSIVE Fandango sign comes over the ring. People are looking forward to his entrance.
Fandango v. Zack Ryder
The Miz comes out for commentary. Fandango comes out to a crowd that is signing and dancing for him. The crowd is pretty into him and it's a lot more clear in person than on TV. Zack Ryder comes out and the crowd goes INSANE! Zack Attack is the hometown hero and gets massive crowd support. It's a short semi-squash match. When Ryder fist pumps, the crowd pops big time with him with the "Woo Woo Woo's." Fandango slips as he climes the turnbuckle but doesn't fall. It's actually humorous though, given his character. He then lands a vicious flying leg drop and gets the pin. Fandango grabs the mic. "It's Faaan Dannnn Goooo." The crowd delivers the line with him. It's almost as if he's toeing the ling between heel and face. If Ryder wasn't his opponent, he may have been the crowd favorite in the match. Barrett is AWOL for this match, which is fine by me because it means he isn't jobbing out tonight.
My favorite part of the night was getting up to go to the backroom and then being stopped by a security guard. A few seconds later, The Shield walked out and stood waiting in the stairwell. You can really the excitement in the area where they make their entrance. Everyone was rushing over to try and take a look. These guys are so over, it's ridiculous.
