Report by Edezal Carr, PWTorch VIP subscriber
To note, all matches involving champions were announced as title matches. There were no Season 2 NXT Rookies on the card.
(1) MVP beat Dolph Ziggler with the Play of the Day.
(2) Women's Champion Layla (w/o Michelle McCool) beat Kelly Kelly to retain the Women's Title. Layla sprayed the ring with perfume before the match. Kelly went for a handspring elbow, but Layla countered with a double foot kick to the back, then finished her off with her Rude Awakening neckbreaker. After the match, Layla attacked Kelly, but Hornswoggle made the save to a huge pop.
(3) Christian beat Tyler Reks. Reks tried to do pre-match mic work, but he was met with chants of "Who are you?" Funny. There were some missed spots that seemed to be due to Reks's slow reactions. Christian won with the Killswitch.
(4) Cody Rhodes beat Chris Masters.
(5) Unified tag champions Hart Dynasty (Tyson Kidd & D.H. Smith w/Natalya) beat Straight Edge Society (Luke Gallows & Masked Assailant w/Serena) via DQ; HD retained the tag titles. I couldn't tell who the Masked Assailant was, but he looked liked Jamie Noble. The Dynasty hit their springboard Hart Attack, which Smith rolled right into a sharpshooter, but C.M. Punk interfered before the mystery man tapped. As Punk had Kidd set up for the GTS, Kane ran in for the save.
Tiffany is announced as the special guest host, but all she did was plug merchandise before intermission.
(6) Intercontinental champion Kofi Kingston beat Drew McIntyre to retain the IC Title. Drew hyped his match with Teddy Long on Friday's Smackdown and insulted Matt Hardy before the match. The crowd sang along to Kofi's music. Kofi hits the SOS out of nowhere for the win. Afterward, Drew attacked Kofi, but Matt Hardy ran in and hit the Side Effect. He then ran out the side of the arena being chased by one referee. As Drew was backing up the aisle, Hardy attacked again. He threw Drew into the ring and Drew was hit with Kofi's Trouble in Paradise, followed by Matt with the Twist of Fate. Matt then ran away from two refs this time because he is "still under suspension."
(7) Kane beat C.M. Punk (w/Straight Edge Society). On the way to the ring, Punk grabbed a poster from a kid wearing a Rey Mysterio mask, ripped it up, and kicked the remains. Punk is the man. I could not do justice to his pre-match mic work. I don't know if it's significant, but Punk's right arm was taped heavily. As Punk went for a springboard move, Kane caught him in mid-air for the chokeslam for the win. Kane tried to unmask Punk, but the SES attack. The Hart Dynasty made the save and Kane simultaneously chokeslammed Gallows and the mystery man. The SES did a group hug and held together so they could walk to the back without falling down.
(8) World Hvt. champion Jack Swagger beat Big Show in a No DQ match to retain the World Hvt. Title. Swagger hit a DDT onto a chair, then went for the running Vader Bomb, but was caught by the throat on the way down. Show landed a chokeslam for a close two count. Swagger then hit a belt shot and a running Vader Bomb for the clean three for the win. Swagger then told Show to stay down or he would make him regret getting up. He went for one more belt shot, but Show caught him and nailed the KO Punch. As Big Show left and everyone was leaving the arena with the lights coming on, Swagger was still knocked out in the ring. It was funny how the refs helped people to the back throughout the night, but they just left Swagger in the ring.
