“Yes sir we promised you a great main event…”
The show opens with a video with a cheesy Vincent Price wannabe voice-over acting like it’s the actual Cell talking. The video focuses on the two world title matches. The video ends and we’re off!
US Title Triple Threat Submissions Count Anywhere Match:
Daniel Bryan (c) vs. The Miz vs. John Morrison
The Miz takes the mic while walking to the ring and says that he was the mentor of both his opponents and no one would know who they were if it weren’t for him. He then said he’d still be a huge star, even without either of them and that he will be the US Champion after tonight. He finished by saying he never taps out because he’s the Miz…
Bryan and Morrison started the match going after Miz, who took refuge outside of the ring. Both wrestlers started chasing him around the ring and back inside. Bryan nailed Miz with a dropkick, knocking him outside of the ring. Bryan and Morrison then exchanged submission holds in the ring.
As is becoming standard in triple threat matches, much of the match featured one guy being on the outside while the two other combatants squared off in the ring. Bryan utilized his library of submission holds when he had the advantage.
The match spilled to the outside of the ring, where Miz backdropped Morrison into the stands. Miz then worked on Morrison’s wrist while fighting in the crowd. Morrison powered out of the hold and started brawling with Miz through the stands. Miz regained the advantage and locked a dragon sleeper on the steel railing on Morrison. Bryan came into the mix, and Miz took the advatage and beat on Bryan in the crowd while visibly giving instructions to Bryan.
Morrison came to and threw Miz back behind the stage and turned his attention to Bryan. While they were fighting, Miz came out with a cart and nailed Morrison with it. He then placed Bryan on the cart and lunged him to the ramp. All three continued to battle near the stage, and Miz planted Morrison with the skull crushing finale on the floor. Miz and Morrison then double clotheslined each other at the top of the stage.
With Miz and Bryan down, Morrison climbed to the top of a portion of cage that was setup as part of the stage and came off with a flying crossbody onto both opponents.
Morrison then placed Miz in a Texas cloverleaf but Alex Riley came in from the back and took Morrison out. Bryan shoved Riley into a cameraman and then locked in the LeBell lock on Miz on the ramp. Bryan kept it locked in until the Miz finally tapped.
Winner and still US Champion: Daniel Bryan
A promo for Legendary aired.
WWE Title Hell In A Cell Match:
Randy Orton (c) vs. Sheamus
Sheamus entered the ring first followed by Orton, and we’re off with the first of two ‘Hell In A Cell’ matches.
After a couple of minutes of action, Sheamus took the advantage and springboarded off the ropes to shoulder tackle Orton. Sheamus tried to use the cage as a weapon and attempted to launch Orton into the Cell, but Orton blocked. Orton then tried to throw Sheamus into the cage but Sheamus reversed and threw Orton into the steel. Sheamus picked up the steel steps and threw them at Orton, but Orton moved and started driving Sheamus into the cage. Orton then hit Sheamus in the head with the steel steps and brought him back into the ring for a two count.
Sheamus regained the advantage and worked over Orton for several minutes inside the ring. Shemus then took the match outside of the ring and started grinding Orton’s face in the cell. He then planted Orton on the steel steps and continued to dominate Orton outside of the ring before getting him back in and getting Orton in a body lock.
Orton was finally able to hit a back suplex and dodged a charge from Sheamus to regain the advantage. Orton continued to stay on offense and nailed a powerslam and belly to belly suplex for a two count. Orton then attempted an RKO, but Sheamus pushed Orton into the ropes and kneed him in the ribs to regain control.
Sheamus brought the steel steps into the ring and went to slam Orton onto them, but Orton was able to reverse and powerslam Sheamus into the steps and cover for a two count. Orton then went to DDT Sheamus on the steel steps, but Sheamus was able to avoid it. Orton then grabbed Sheamus by the neck and planted him with a DDT on the floor. As Sheamus got up Orton went for another RKO outside of the ring, but Sheamus was able to push Orton into the steel post to regain the advantage.
Sheamus brought Orton back in the ring and on top of the steel steps. Sheamus then hit a backbreaker and followed it up with a big boot to the face, but only got a two count. Sheamus then grabbed a steel chair from ringside and nailed Orton with it several times, but was only able to get another two count.
Sheamus went to nail Orton upside the head with a chair shot but Orton was able to dodge it and hit an RKO! Orton took a couple of moments to get back to his feet and then went outside of the ring. Sheamus rolled out of the ring as well and Orton went for a punt, but Sheamus dodged it and nailed Orton with another big boot to the face. Sheamus rolled Orton into the ring but again was only able to get a two count.
A frustrated Sheamus then dragged Orton onto the ring steps which are still in the center of the ring and signaled for the high cross, but Orton was able to counter and pull Sheamus’ feet from underneath him. Orton then followed with an RKO onto the steel steps as Sheamus got back to his feet and got the three count! Really good match.
Winner and STILL WWE Champion: Randy Orton
After the match, Orton climbed to the top of the cage and celebrated on top of the cell.
In what might be a pre-cursor for later tonight, a ‘Bragging Rights’ promo aired and the Nexus logo was featured in it.
Josh Matthews interviewed the NXT Season 3 divas and asked them how the felt about the elimination coming up on Tuesday. Nexus interfered and the divas took off. Wade Barrett said that there was something in the air. He said he was going to win and that they were going to have a special gift for John Cena, which was a Nexus armband. He said that right now Cena is against them, but promises that he will be with them tomorrow night.
Alberto Del Rio made his way to the ring. He took the mic and introduced himself and said that tonight was his WWE PPV debut. He said he can buy every person in the audience and said that he has more money than Mark Cuban and is more handsome than Tony Romo. He then challenged anyone from the back and Edge’s music hit.
Edge said that there are parts of Del Rio that are extremely stupid and made fun of his scarf and coming out with a chihuahua on SmackDown! Edge called Del Rio “muey stupido.” Del Rio said he’s the man that’s going to hurt him and gave a wink. Edge continued to call Del Rio “stupid” and the two were about to go at it when Jack Swagger’s music hit. Swagger said that what was stupid for a Mexican and a Canadian to be arguing when an All American American isn’t wrestling tonight. Before you knew it, Edge and Swagger started fighting while Del Rio slipped away. Swagger beat down Edge and we get an email from the RAW General Manager who said that Edge will issue an apology to him tomorrow night on RAW, and he will face Swagger right now.
Edge vs. Jack Swagger
Swagger got the early advantage over the injured Edge. Swagger dominated the opening minutes of the match and worked Edge over with submission holds. Swagger continued to dominate, including locking Edge in an abdominal stretch on the top rope. As he came back into the ring, Edge tok advantage and nailed Swagger with a boot to the head. Crowd is quiet so far for this match.
Edge followed up with punches and a clothesline and then a modified bulldog. Edge got a two count and then followed up with a couple of other offensive moves before Swagger was able to lock in an ankle lock. Edge made the ropes, forcing Swagger to break the hold. Edge back body dropped Swagger outside of the ring, but Swagger pulled Edge out. Swagger went for an ankle lock outside of the ring but Edge kicked him off into the steps and threw him back in the ring. Edge then climbed to the top rope and hit a flying drop kick for another two count. The crowd is still lifeless.
Edge climbed to the top again but was met with a belly to belly throw from Swagger for a two count. Swagger hit a back suplex, but missed a splash and Edge hit a DDT. Edge then motioned for a spear but was met with a gut wrench power bomb and Swagger got another two count. Swagger grabbed a leg and Swagger went for another ankle lock but Edge rolled out and popped off the ropes for a spear. Edge covered and was able to get the pin. Both guys tried hard, but the lack of crowd reaction really hurt this match.
Winner via pinfall: Edge
A “Don’t Try This At Home” promo aired.
Nexus sans Barrett were shown backstage. Otunga said that he had a plan that would work and they won’t get disqualified.
John Cena vs. Wade Barrett
If Barrett wins, Cena must join Nexus. If Cena wins, Nexus must break up.
Cena showed his ‘legendary’ skills early and dominated the opening portion of he match with some amateur wrestling moves and followed up with a back body drop and a dropkick. Cena continued to dominate until Nexus came to ringside and provided a distraction. Barrett knocked Cena out of the ring and then scolded Nexus, who stayed at ringside but didn’t touch Cena.
Barrett continued to dominate Cena, garnering several two counts. There were dueling “Let’s Go Nexus” / “Let’s Go Cena” chants, but overall Cena has gotten a better response then he normally does on PPV shows.
Cena was finally able to gain control and signaled for the five knuckle shuffle. Cena hit it as the Nexus surrounded the show. A whole slew of stars hit the ring including the Big Show, Mark Henry, R-Truth and a host of others. They beat down Nexus outside of the ring as Cena watched and smiled. The superstars left the ring and Cena turned his attention back to Barrett.
Cena dropped Barrett and went for the STF, but Barrett wiggled out and dropped Cena to the mat. Barrett went for his slam but Cena reversed into a side suplex and got a two count. Cena went for the AA, but Barrett got out and planted Cena with a suplex and got a two count. Barrett was able to hit a sidewalk slam for another two count. Matt Striker noted that the “Let’s Go Cena” chants were coming from the kids and the girls in the crowd, while the guys were chanting for Barrett which may be the first time they’ve acknowledged that on TV.
Barrett came off the second rope with an elbow and missed. Cena slowly climbed to the top but was met by Barrett, who tried to suplex Cena off the top. Cena powered out and headbutted Barrett off the ropes and came off with a flying legdrop for another two count! Cena went for the AA, but Barrett countered with “Wasteland” but only got two! Cena then quickly got to his feet and hit the AA out of nowhere, but Barrett kicked out at two!
After a few moments, Cena then applied the STF. A plant hit the ring and then someone hit Cena in the head with a foreign object (I think it was Husky Harris). Barrett covered Cena and got the three count! The panned to a bunch of fans at ringside who were shocked.
Winner via pinfall: Wade Barrett
After the match, the rest of the Nexus members hit the ring and held Barrett on their shoulders. As Cena came to, he sat in a corner dejected. He slowly got to his feet as the crowd watched in silence. Cena slowly headed to the back and hugged a kid as he left.
Josh Matthews interviewed Paul Bearer backstage and asked why he returned. Because he was dead. Bearer said he was biding his time and said that Kane would never be his favorite son. Bearer seems like he’s still trying to get his voice right, because it sounded more like someone doing a Paul Bearer impersonation.
A video aired plugging the work WWE does with the Make-A-Wish foundation.
Unified Divas Title Match:
Michelle McCool (c) vs. Natalya
Cole and company were still in shock over the Cena match. McCool got Natalya to chase her outside the ring and Layla ran interference, allowing McCool to lay Natalya out with a clothesline.
McCool got Natalya back in the ring and locked in a body scissors. Later in the match Natalya was able to gain control and Layla jumped on the apron to interfere. McCool went to knee Natalya who moved out of the way and McCool accidentally nailed Layla.
Moments later Natalya locked in a sharpshooter in the middle of the ring, but McCool was able to turn over and lock in a heel hook. Natalya was able to re-reverse it back into the sharpshooter. Layla got on the apron and Natalya let go of the hold right as McCool startd to tap. The reversals were cool, but the finish seemed botched.
Winner via disqualification: Natalya
World Heavyweight Title Hell In A Cell Match:
Kane (c) vs. The Undertaker
Kane jumped the Undertaker as he was getting into the cage and beat on him outside of the ring. e dragged Taker back in but Taker was able to reverse an irish whip into the cage to gain the advantage. Taker rammed a chair into Kane’s ribs and took the match back into the ring. Undertaker continued on offense until Kane was able to use the chair inside the ring to regain the advantage.
Kane later regained the advantage and started working over Taker’s leg. The crowd is quiet for this match, and may be worn out after the Cena match. Kane continued to work the leg over and stayed in control for most of the match.
At one point Taker was able to lock in Hell’s Gate, but Kane was able to shift his weight and get out of the ring. Kane got back in the ring and they nailed each other with a big boot to the face. The both sat up at the same time and traded punches on their knees, with Taker finally getting the better of it and then nailing Kane for a DDT, allowing him to get a two count. Taker then hit a chokeslam, but Kane was out at two. Undertaker went for the Last Ride, but Kane hit Taker’s leg and hit a chokeslam to get a two count of his own.
Kane charged at Taker several times in the corner with a splash and then teed off on the undertaker with punches. Kane climbed o the second rope and continued to drop punches, but Taker grabbed Kane and landed a Last Ride, but Kane kicked out at two.
Undertaker got Kane up for the tombstone, but Kane reversed and hit The Undertaker with a tombstone, but only got two! Kane then decked the referee, laying him out. Another ref came in as Kane went out of the ring and started to chase Paul Bearer, who was inside the cage. While Bearer looks the same as he did six years ago, he is moving WAY slower.
Kane stalked him into the ring. Kane started yelling at Bearer as Taker sat up. Kane turned around and Taker chokeslammed Kane. Taker motioned for the tombstone and the lights went blue and lightning started to flash which was cheesy as hell. Bearer opened the urn, which had a light and flashed it in Taker’s face. Taker was blinded for a minute and then stunned. Bearer then handed the run to Kane, who smashed Taker over the head with it. Kane followed up with a chokeslam and got the win. So now Paul Bearer is back with Kane in this feud with the Undertaker, it’s deja vu all over again.
Winner via pinfall: Kane
