Jimmy Wang Yang & Slam Masta J d. Tyler Reks & Vance Archer when Jimmy pinned Tyler with Yang Time


CM Punk & Darren Young d. Matt Hardy & Justin Gabriel when Darren pinned Matt with some help from Punk - Luke Gallows laid out D.Y. with the big boot afterwards. J.G. showed some nice fortitude when he was getting his gut picked apart, and D.Y. showed some nice tag team work IMO.

Daniel Bryan (b.k.a. Bryan Danielson to us PWG fans) was pinned by The Great Khali with the Tree Slam, then ate a Big Show chokeslam - he survived, barely ... Miz, that wasn't...awesome.

Heath Slater rolled-up & pinned Michael Tarver, who laid him out afterwards with a decent bodyslam finisher - would like to see more from Heath, though, like a good set-up move, & a legitimate finisher.

Wade Barrett (w/ Chris Jericho) pinned Skip Sheffield (w/ William Regal) - the finish could've been better, but both wrestlers have decent potential based on what I saw.


Match 1 to air this Thurs.: Kane pinned Shelton Benjamin with the chokeslam


Promo between Rey & the SES to set up a streetfight between Rey & CM Punk at WM26, as well as a match for later that night. Punk says that if Rey loses his match with Luke Gallows this night, & the streetfight at Mania, then he will be forced to join the SES.

Dolph Ziggler & Jack Swagger d. MVP & Matt Hardy when Ziggy floored Montel with his finisher - Ziggy exited with Swagger first, then went back to the ring, took a ladder from underneath the ring, and took the MitB briefcase.

Beth Phoenix (The Glamazon) & Tiffany d. WWE Women's Champion Michelle McCool & Layla when Phoenix pinned McCool with the Glam Slam - Vickie Guerrero got in Phoenix's face, and set a match between the two for next week's Supershow TV event in San Jose.

Cutting Edge promo in which Edge invited Chris Jericho over, who came with Wade Barrett. After their mic work, Edge initiated the fight, then speared Wade Barrett, only to get Codebreaked by Jericho, who then stomped his surgically repaired achilles tendon to end the segment. Jericho: "Spear!"

John Morrison & R-Truth (no David Otunga) d. The Hart Dynasty (Tyson Kidd & David Hart Smith, w/ Natalya) when R-Truth pinned Tyson with the Lie Detector - short, but high octane match IMO.

Luke Gallows pinned Rey Mysterio with the former Festus' new finisher - Rey brawled with Luke afterwards at the commentators table, stunning both Punk & Serena (Deeb) Mancini.

The Undertaker tombstoned & pinned WWE Intercontinental Champion Drew McIntyre in a non-title match - HBK came out as Taker made his exit. Both brawled, and Shawn "knocked Taker's teeth down his throat" with Sweet Chin Music. Taker did his customary sit-up, and exited, since HBK "stole" his fist-raising exit, most likely to complete the SD tapings to air This Friday.


8-man tag team match. John Cena, Edge, Rey Mysterio, & Triple H d. Batista, Chris Jericho, CM Punk, & Sheamus

Final match moments:

Cena Five-Knuckle Shuffles Punk
Batista thwarts the AA on Punk, but gets the Attitude Adjustment himself
Cena eats Sheamus' big Irish boot
Sheamus gets Pedigree'd
Jericho Codebreaks Triple H
Edge Spears Jericho...again!
Punk puts Edge "to sleep", then eats the 6-1-9, & the AA
Cena pins Punk
