LAST MAN STANDING MATCH FOR THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE
Edge defeated Kane to retain the World Heavyweight title: The match spilled out of the ring, to the backstage area, into the upper deck, and into the lobby of the arena. Kane put Edge in a wheel-chair and tried to push it down s flight of stairs but Edge jumped out at the last second. They went to commerciall and ended up back at ringside on return. Back in the ring, the momentum shifted into Kane’s favor for the next few minutes. Edge beat the 10-count several times after taking huge power-moves from Kane. Edge turned the tables and slammed Kane on the ring steps outside of the ring. Kane beat the 10-count. Kane recovered and choke-slammed Edge through the announce table! Edge beat the 10-count again! Kane pushed Edge in the ring and started tossing chairs in as well. Edge threw a chair at Kane as he entered the ring and knocked him silly.

#1 CONTENDERS FATAL FOURWAY FOR THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE
Dolph Ziggler w/Vickie Guerrero defeated The Big Show and “Dashing” Cody Rhodes and Drew McIntyre: This was orignially a Triple Threat, but Vickie Guerrero came out and said that Ziggler has been added to the match. All three men drove Big Show through the safety barricade. Wade Barrett came out and attacked Big Show and then took off. Ziggler won after tricking Rhodes into going after the weakened Big Show and hit him (Rhodes) with a Zig Zag. Vickie was excited and celebrated with Dolph so I guess they are back together.

Michelle McCool w/Layla El defeated Kelly Kelly: McCool pinned Kelly after hitting the Faith Breaker (aka the Styles Clash). After the match, LayCool continued to humiliate Kelly until Drew McIntyre came out and told them to get out of the ring. Drew then checked on Kelly and showed great concern for her.

MAIN EVENT (BEST 2/3 FALLS MATCH)
Alberto Del Rio defeated Rey Mysterio: Del Rio locked in the Armbreaker, and Mysterio tapped out for the first fall. Mysterio rolled Del Rio up in a Small Cradle for the second fall. Mysterio got counted out due to Del Rio’s personal ring announcer, Ricardo Rodriguez, holding his leg, preventing him from getting in the ring in time. After the match, Mysterio chased Rodriguez and hit a 619 to end the show.
