Booker T is announced as the special guest referee and his music played for one year but he didn't come out so they switched to Kane's music and had him walk out instead. As Kane is halfway to the ring Booker T pops out and walks to the ring. Both Kane and Big Show came out to huge pops from the crowd, Kane receiving some "You Sold Out" chants at the start of the match. This match was very slow paced as you can imagine with these two guys. At one point it must've gotten so slow that the bell guy fell asleep or was desperately trying to end the match and rang the bell after the Big Show got an obvious two count on Kane. Booker T holds up two fingers at the bell guy with a face full of disbelief. The crowd chants "Two" and then lets the bell guy know he screwed up. Big Show then hits the knockout punch for the three count. Afterwards, an infuriated Big Show goes up to the bell guy and tells him off. No way was any of that supposed to happen. The crowd then asks Booker for a spinarooni. He asks the crowd if they really want to see one. The crowd chants YES. He hits one spinarooni and walks off.
Del Rio drew lots of heat from the crowd but Orton received a huge pop with some mixed in boos. Mysterio also received a huge pop. Cena received such a huge ovation from the crowd that I thought I felt the place move. I mean I couldn't hear what my nephew who was sitting next to me was trying to say to me. This was definitely the match of the night. The pace of the match and the intensity of the crowd made this such a great match. Cena was cornered for quite a while before Mysterio was able to tag in and take over the match for a short time. Mysterio was then cornered for quite a long time before he was finally able to tag Cena back in and the place errupted. Cena hits Del Rio with the 5 Knuckle Shuffle, goes for the AA but Del Rio reverses it into his armlock. Cena is able to pick Del Rio up from this position and slam him but is immediately hit with an RKO. Rey jumps in and kicks Orton to the outside, hits Del Rio with the 619, Del Rio staggers right into Cena who hits him with the AA for the win. Again the place goes nuts. Cena and Mysterio hang around for a while signing autographs and giving high fives to kids around the ring.
Overall I was impressed with the show they were able to put on with the lack of talent available. Great crowd helped. Once Cena and Mysterio we're gone the crowd was chanting for CM Punk and Daniel Bryan. There were also some chants for The Shield.
