John Morrison prepared to take on Tyson Kidd and The Miz in a Triple Threat, when Miz ambushed Kidd as he came down the ramp! Morrison dove to the floor and missed, and ate a Skull Crushing Finale! All three men went back and forth, but Morrison took advantage of a worn down Kidd to win the match!

Bolo came to the ring to provide back-up as David Hart Smith squared off with former partner Tyson Kidd! As Smith moved in for the kill, Yoshi Tatsu ran in and caused a distraction!

In a shocking upset, Justin Gabriel pinned Chris Jericho after a sneak attack from the crowd and a 450 Splash!

Despite interference from Maryse, John Morrison (w/R-Truth) pinned Ted DiBiase.
Gallows jumped Cody Rhodes before the bell, but was surprised as Cody ferociously fought back! As Gallows started to gain the upperhand, Cody caught a small package out of nowhere for the win! Cody offered Gallows a handshake post-match, but was refused.
Rey Mysterio, Rob Van Dam and Chris Masters teamed up to face MVP, Alberto Del Rio and Raven! The match was phenomenal and saw lots of momentum shifts, but MVP planted Masters with the Playmaker to score the win.
Dolph Ziggler pinned Finlay in what was mostly a showcase for Ziggler, hitting the Zig-Zag and putting his feet on the ropes.

Bragging Rights kicked off with Dolph Ziggler vs Shawn MichaelS! Kozlov was at ringside, playing mind games with HBK...and Luger ran out as well! Luger ALMOST interfered multiple times, never actually touching Michaels...but did cause ample distracting to allow Ziggler to score a huge upset!
CM Punk and Luke Gallows absolutely punished R-Truth en route to Straight Edge Society winning the Tag Team Titles from Morrison and R-Truth!

The biggest opportunity of Drew McIntyre's career flew right out of his hands as Swagger spiked him with the Gutwrench Powerbomb to retain the World Heavyweight Title.
In a Smackdown vs Raw Battle Royal, Raven, Alberto Del Rio, MVP, Sheamus, Edge and The Miz squared off! Raven went pretty quickly, while Edge and MVP followed. Sheamus and Miz should have dominated Del Rio, but their personal issues exploded and Sheamus helped Del Rio eliminate Miz before winning the battle royal himself!
Wade Barrett's momentum of destiny slipped through his fingers as he was pinned by Triple H following a BRUTAL match...perhaps the presence of David Otunga in the crowd threw Barrett off his game. After the match, Luger and Kozlov taunted the exhausted Triple H.
