DARK MATCH: Evan Bourne defeated Sheamus O’Shaunessy..
IN THE RING WWE champion Batista + Randy Orton + Legacy (Ted DiBiase Jr. & Cody Rhodes): Batista came out and celebrated his title victory with the fans. Batista said he knows Ric Flair was watching and added that he did it for him as well as the fans. Batista said he did it for everyone who was sick and tired of Randy Orton. Batista said it was only the beginning. Batista said Orton has hurt a lot of people, and he’s going to hurt him back. Batista said he would take Orton’s pride, and….. but then he was suddenly interrupted by former WWE champion Randy Orton! Orton looked disturbed without his championship and he slowly walked to the ring. Batista kept looking over his shoulder expecting a sneak attack. Orton got closer to the ring, and Ted DiBiase & Cody Rhodes finally snuck in from behind. The ambush began as all three members of Legacy dismantled Batista – focusing on his right arm. Orton wrapped Batista arm in a folding chair and stomped it repeatedly and viciously! Orton then got down and pulled Batista’s arm back in an unnatural position, effectively “breaking” it. Orton was hypnotized as he picked up the WWE championship and held it above his head and then took it backstage over his shoulder. After the commercial, Batista was helped out (but he left on his own two feet) before being strapped onto a stretcher backstage and loaded into an ambulance!
NON (UNITED STATES) TITLE MATCH WWE United States champion Kofi Kingston defeated William Regal:
BACKSTAGE SEGMENT Randy Orton & Legacy (Ted DiBiase jr. & Cody Rhodes) + Josh Mathews: Cody Rhodes bragged that there was no way Batista could come back after what they did to him. Josh Mathews came in for an interview, and Randy Orton said the only thing anybody needs to know is that Batista is down and out. Orton said he has a rematch clause so Batista has to come back and fight like a man. Orton said by the end of the night, one way or another, he will be WWE champion.
WWE DIVAS TITLE MATCH Maryse Ouellet defeated Kelly Kelly to retain the WWE Diva’s title: Mickie James (wearing a terrible-looking dress) joined Michael Cole & Jerry Lawler on commentary. Maryse tried to humiliate Kelly with some slaps after the match, but Mickie jumped in to chase her away..
BACKSTAGE INTERVIEW Josh Mathews & Vickie Guerrero: Vickie Guerrero said there will be a title match later tonight and if Batista doesn’t come back then Randy Orton will be awarded the WWE championship. Vickie added that she had an announcement that will change the face of RAW forever!
SIX-MAN TAG TEAM MATCH Santino Marella & Goldust & Festus w/Hornswoggle defeated Chavo Guerrero & Jamie Noble & Brian Kendrick: Brian Kendrick tried to bully Honswoggle but it backfired and it ended up costing his team the match!
IN THE RING Mike “The Miz” Mizanin: The Miz said tonight was the night that he will go one-on-one with John Cena. The Miz said he has called out Cena every week and he hasn’t come out and faced him! The Miz said everybody is making excuses for Cena, but tonight Cena doesn’t have any excuses. The Miz then called out John Cena for their scheduled match!
GRUDGE MATCH John Cena vs. Mike Mizanin ended in a No Contest: Before the match could start, the Big Show walked down and entered the ring. John Cena knocked the Miz out of the ring and tried to lift Big Show up for an FU, but Big Show knocked him out with an elbow! Big Show then put Cena in the Giant Camel Clutch! Cena’s facials will not win him any Oscars. Just as Cena was about to pass out, the Miz jumped back in the ring and repeatedly whacked the Big Show with a steel chair! The Miz yelled “I told you, Cena, you have nothing on me!” before smashing him once with the chair! Big Show chased the Miz out of the ring and told him, “you just sealed your fate!”
SINGLES MATCH Montel Vontavious Porter defeated Matt Hardy: Before the match, MVP said if there was going to be a WWE championship match next week he wanted to be in it. MVP said if there was any doubt, he was gonna prove it tonight by beating Matt Hardy.
IN THE RING General Manager Vickie Guerrero + Edge: Vickie said she knows a lot of people are upset at her for granting Randy Orton a rematch tonight. Vickie started crying over being slopped with mud at Extreme Rules. Vickie said she has never been so humiliated in her life. Vickie said she was looking for sympathy but all she saw was everyone laughing at her and taking pictures of her! Vickie screamed “I am so ashamed of you!!” Vickie asked where was the fans decency and respect? Vickie said she has had it! Vickie said it’s the fans who want Batista vs. Orton and blamed it on them. Vickie said she was sick and tired and has decided to resign as General Manager of RAW – in other words “I QUIT!!!” Vickie started to cry (probably real tears), but was interrupted by Edge (who limped to the ring, due to the Ladder match he had with Jeff Hardy the night before). Edge said he wanted to make things right and apologize, but then Vickie quit, which means he doesn’t need to apologize and he doesn’t need to continue with this marriage. Edge admitted that he married Vickie for her power. Edge said he wanted to be champion at any cost, and now that Vickie has no power she is worthless. Edge said when they went out in public, people thought she was his mother. Edge said the people could never believe he was in love with a “she beast.” Edge said if anybody deserved sympathy it’s him. Edge said the only saving grace was that they never consumated the marriage. Edge said it’s fitting that Vickie’s days in the WWE are over, because so is their marriage. Edge proclaimed “I WANT A DIVORCE!” and Vickie started screaming uncontrollably (terrible acting).
BACKSTAGE INTERVIEW Josh Mathews & John Cena: John Cena said he guesses the Big Show still has a problem with him. Cena addressed the Miz, who is picking a fight with the toughest guy in the bar trying to make a name for himself. Cena said he kinda respects that, but he doesn’t like how the Miz runs his mouth every week. Cena said some day they will come face-to-face and see how awesome the Miz is..
NON (UNIFIED TAG TEAM) TITLE MATCH Legacy (Ted DiBiase Jr. & Cody Rhodes) defeated Unified Tag Team champions The Colon Brothers (Carlito & Primo): Rhodes & DiBiase earned a future title shot..
IN THE RING Randy Orton & Legacy (Ted DiBiase Jr. & Cody Rhodes) + Triple H (surprise!): Randy Orton praised Rhodes & DiBiase for becoming number one contenders to the Unified Tag Team titles. Orton said he hopes Batista doesn’t use what happened earlier as an excuse not to show up tonight. Orton showed a replay of Legacy destroying Batista earlier. Orton said if Batista doesn’t show up then he will win the WWE championship (which he was holding in his hands) by forfeit…… Lilian Garcia introduced Batista, and his music played, but Batista did not appear from behind the curtain. Orton demanded that the referee start the match and start counting Batista out. That doesn’t make sense because the title can’t change hands on a countout. The cameras caught the ambulance returning to the arena and the referee stopped the count. Orton started to get worried. However, it was Triple H who jumped out of the ambulance holding a sledgehammer! Triple H walked to the ring, as Rhodes & DiBiase armed themselves with steel chairs. Orton was more than worried now. Triple H showed up and Orton sent Rhodes up the ramp, followed by DiBiase, and they both ended up knocked out by the sledgehammer! Triple H dropped the sledgehammer, ripped off his shirt, and went after Randy Orton!!! They brawled all around ringside, for several minutes, over the safety barried, then back to the ring area. Orton got his hands on a chair, and HHH flattened him with a Spine-buster! HHH grabbed the chair and smashed Orton (unprotected) in the head with it, then smashed him repeatedly against the back, ribs, and a vile shot to the neck! The crowd demanded a Pedigree, so HHH picked up Orton and delivered a Pedigree right on top of the steel chair!
