I’d say the arena was about half full. Pretty hot crowd with some dead spots mixed in. The Bella Twins were the ring announcers.
1. Eve Torres def. Kelly Kelly. Longer divas match than what you see on TV. Not a great match, but decent considering the two in it.
2. Brodus Clay def. Michael McGillicutty. McGillicutty got a decent amount of offense in and looked good. Only a matter of time before they (should) do something with this guy.
3. Xavier Woods def. Curt Hawkins.
4. US Championship Match: champ Jack Swagger defeated R- Truth in an excellent back and forth match.
5. In what had to be one of the matches of the night, Chris Jericho defeated Kofi Kingston.
6. WWE Tag Team Championship Match: champs: Epico and Primo w/Rosa Mendez def. Santino Marella and Mason Ryan. Epico and Primo tried very hard to put on a good match. Santino did his usual stuff and Mason Ryan was sort of just there. WWE is in DESPERATE NEED of actual tag teams instead of two guys thrown together who have absolutely no chemistry.
7. John Cena def. Kane in a no DQ Match.
8. WWE Championship Match: champ CM Punk def. Dolph Ziggler w/ Chris Jericho as an outside referee. This would be the other match of the night. Excellent back and forth wrestling. Ref bump, Jericho interferes, gives Punk the Code Breaker and tried for several fast pins including Jericho putting Ziggler on top of Punk, then counting. Punk would eventually fight off Jericho and give Ziggler the GTS just in time for the referee to come to and count the three. Afterwards, CM Punk went around the ring, up the ramp, then down the other side greeting fans.
