(WWE Intercontinental champion Drew McIntyre & Matt Hardy & Kane & Dolph Ziggler & Shelton Benjamin) defeated Team RAW (Evan Bourne & Christian & Jack Swagger & Kofi Kingston & Montel Vontavious Porter): Dolph and Kofi started off. Dolph had the upper hand until Kofi hit a kick. When Kofi went for the pin the ring flooded with guys from both teams staring each other down. Back from commercial Hardy was wrestling Swagger. Hardy hit a running bulldog for 2, and tagged in to Shelton. Swagger hit a big belly to belly suplex to gain control, but wouldn’t tag to anyone. Shelton hit Swagger with a roundhouse kick and Bourne tagged in! Bourne got the upper hand using his agility, and made the tag to Christian. Christian made the tag quickly to MVP. MVP hit a big lariat before tagging back to Bourne. Bourne tried for the shooting star press but Drew distracted him so Shelton could hit a big belly to belly suplex off the turnbuckle! Back from commercial Shelton had a chin lock on Bourne. Shelton tagged in Kane who threw Bourne into the turnbuckle. Kane hit a body slam and an elbow drop before tagging in Hardy. Hardy locked in a front chancery for a brief moment before tagging in Dolph. Dolph taunted the other team before tagging Hardy back in. Hardy almost immediately tagged Dolph back in. Dolph started taunting the other team again and Bourne hit a huge kick to Dolph’s face! Bourne finally got the hot tag to Christian, who destroyed Dolph with a missile drop kick. Dolph reversed a body slam into a sleeper hold from hell attempt but Christian easily got out of it. Drew ran into the ring and attacked Christian, so MVP charged in and hit a yakuza kick to Drew in the corner. Everyone charged into the ring and hit moves on each other, until Kane hit a double chokeslam on Kofi and Bourne. Kane tried for one on Christian but Christian threw Kane out of the ring. Drew tagged himself in, but Christian didn’t notice. Christian hit the killswitch on Dolph, and walked into the future shock from Drew! After the match Drew set up a ladder and began climbing it but the rest of the MIIB participants surrounded him and threw the ladder down!
WrestleMania Axxess: They showed Jerry “The King” Lawler & Michael Cole at WrestleMania Axxess for an inordinate amount of time.
Josh Mathews & WWE Unified Tag Team champions ShowMiz (WWE United States champion Mike “The Miz” Mizanin & The Big Show): Josh asked ShowMiz if they were confident about Sunday. Miz said they were the champions, and that him and Big Show are like macaroni and cheese, like batman and robin, but they’re opponents at WrestleMania are like salt and pepper and team Edward and team Jacob. Miz said to forget about last Monday night, tonight Big Show is going to show Truth what a knockout punch looks like, and that’s awesome!
WWE DIVAS GRUDGE MATCH
Beth Phoenix vs. Vickie Guerrero: Vickie reminded Beth that she said last week if Beth ever laid hands on her she would regret it, so in the spirit of competition, the match was now a 5 on 1 handicap match!
5 ON 1 DIVAS HANDICAP MATCH
Vickie Guerrero & Michelle McCool & Layla El & Maryse Ouellet & Alicia Fox defeated Beth Phoenix: Beth and Layla started off. Beth beat the crap out of Layla but Michelle made a tag to Layla while Beth had her lifted for a gorilla press slam. Beth pulled Michelle in by her hair and began attacking all the Divas except for Vickie! Finally Layla grabbed Beth’s legs so Michelle could hit a big boot. Vickie screamed for a tag and pinned Beth for the 3! After the match, Vickie climbed up to the second rope and got ready for a frog splash but the babyface divas (Mickie James, Kelly Kelly, Eve Torres, and Gail Kim) hit the ring and saved Beth from being crushed to death! The babyface Divas chased away the heel ones, leaving Beth and Vickie alone together in the ring! Beth pulled Vickie’s pants down, revealing pink underwear that said “Excuse Me” on the back!
IN THE RING
World Heavyweight champion Chris Jericho + Edge: Chris said this Sunday was WrestleMania. Chris said this Sunday he was going to beat Edge and retain his title. Chris said Edge is a tremendous performer, one of the greatest of all time, and there’s never been an athlete who has been able to come back from as many injuries as Edge has. Chris said Edge came back 3 months early from his Achilles injury to win the Royal Rumble, and that is an amazing story. Chris said his courage, his passion, his love for this business is second to none, he has every tool it takes to win the World title, every tool except for one thing; DNA. Chris said he apologized if it was going over the audience’s head, but DNA defines who you are. Chris said his DNA is superior to the WWE Universe, and Edge. Chris said it’s his DNA that has made him the World Heavyweight champion, it’s his DNA that has made him the first undisputed champion, and it’s his DNA that has made him the greatest performer, and the best in the world at what he does. Chris said the sad thing is Edge’s one downfall is his inferior DNA. Chris said Edge is dysfunctional, Edge is a reject, Edge is defective like everyone, and it’s his DNA that has caused him to be injured time and time again. Chris said it’s not his fault he is constantly injured, it’s in his DNA. Chris said this Sunday he was going to use Edge’s inferior DNA against him to end his career. Chris said he was going to take advantage of Edge’s ankle, and bend it back until it ruptures into 1000 pieces! Chris said when the match is done and Edge is writhing in pain in the middle of the ring, the sound of 70,000 sheep silenced, and Edge is wondering why is career is over, not to blame Chris or himself, but to blame his DNA. Edge came charging down to the ring! Edge hit a big boot, and got ready for the spear, but Chris dove out of the ring and got away. Chris left his World title in the ring with Edge.
WrestleMania Axxess: More crap from fan Axxess.
Unified Tag Team champion The Big Show w/WWE United States champion & Unified Tag Team champion Mike “The Miz” Mizanin defeated R-Truth w/John Morrison by DQ: John Morrison came out before everyone else so he could announce R-Truth to the ring. Truth told John that was one of the best introductions he has ever had. Truth said it was only fair that he gives Morrison one back. R-Truth announced John Morrison. Morrison said he didn’t understand why Show wanted to tag team with Miz. R-Truth said ShowMiz was like peanut without the butter, macaroni without the cheese, and they kept going. Morrison said Show was like the anti-Taker, Undertaker was like 17-0, Big Show was like 0-10. They made fun of Big Show for being fat for a while. Truth said his grandpa told him that the bigger they come, the harder they fall. Truth said tonight Big Show would find out that the Truth doesn’t just set you free; it lays you on your back for the 1-2-3! Morrison said this Sunday at WrestleMania they would be the Unified Tag Team champions. Finally the match got started. Big Show used his strength to easily throw Truth around. Show dominated Truth for 2 minutes before climbing up to the middle rope and missing a diving elbow drop! Morrison threw Miz into the steel steps and ran into the match. Truth hit an axe kick and Morrison followed that up with a springboard kick. Miz ran in and Truth hit him with the lie detector, followed up with Morrison hitting starship pain.
