WWE Tag Team Champion Goldust w/Cody Rhodes v. Seth Rollins w/Roman Reigns
Goldust and Seth Rollins lock up in the middle of the ring. Goldust starts the offence hard and fast, as Goldust knocks down Rollins twice before a quick cover. Rollins rolls out and conferences with Roman Reigns. Rollins rolls back in and Goldust continues the offence as Rollins rolls out again. Both men conference with their corner men, and Goldust essentially tells Seth Rollins to kiss his ass! Rollins, livid, takes it to Goldust, until Lord Goldie takes it to him again. Goldust covers Rollins and Rollins kicks out at two. Rollins takes the pace back, controlling Goldust, and after a dropkick to a seated Goldust, covers him. Goldust kicks out at two, and Rollins attempts to whip Goldust to the ropes. Goldust stops himself, and tosses Rollins over the top! Goldust lays into Rollins on the outside, and Roman Reigns starts jaw-jacking with Goldust. Rollins takes advantage of the distraction by sending Goldust into the barricade as we go to commercial!
Rollins hits a quick cover, and Goldust powers out. Goldust lays into Rollins again, but Rollins cuts off the momentum, and covers Goldust, who powers out at two. Rollins takes head control, however, Goldust finds his way out, stacks Rollins up, but Rollins escapes at one and hard whips Goldust into two separate turnbuckles. Seth Rollins stalks Goldust, playing with his prey, until Goldust hits the MEAAAAAN flurry of offence on Rollins. Goldust hits the modified bulldog, and covers Rollins, who kicks out at two. Goldust and Rollins share an exchange in counters, and Rollins gets the enziguri! Rollins slowly covers Goldust, who powers out at two. Rollins goes up top, misses the flying knee, and Goldust hits a counter Double-A spinebuster for a two count. Goldust covers Rollins who kicked out at two! Rollins gets tied up in the ropes, and Goldust utterly destroys him in the ropes. After a little bit of offence, Goldust jawjacks with Reigns, and Cody lays into Reigns! Goldust gets rolled up as he entered the ring and Rollins takes it!

After the match, we are treated to a wonderfully done John Cena highlight video. Personally, this video touched me, as a fan of John Cena.
Speaking of the Cenation Leader, he returns this Sunday to challenge for Alberto Del Rio’s World Championship!

Titus “The Real Deal” O’Neil takes it to Jack Swagger to open the match. Titus O’Neil rag dolls Swagger before tagging in Darren Young. Darren tosses Swagger into the rope, as Cesaro blind tags into the match. Swagger gets hit with a Northern Lights Suplex, but Cesaro breaks up the pin, as he is the legal man. Cesaro and Swagger frequently tag in with each other, as Cesaro takes it to Darren on the outside before covering Darren. Darren does kick out at two, however, Cesaro stops Darren from tagging in Titus. After Swagger and Cesaro manhandle Young, Young counters out and tags in Titus who sends Swagger packing initially, but Cesaro takes advantage by clipping the leg. Cesaro sends Titus for the ride, followed up by Jack Swagger hitting a Leg DDT, and locking in the Patriot Lock for the win as Titus O’Neil tapped like Clayton “Peg Leg” Bates!
