SINGLES MATCH
Rey Mysterio defeated Cody Rhodes
Cody Rhodes came down to the ring with some guys who had a shopping cart full of paper bags with them. Cody said he wears his mask for protection; Rey wears his because he’s hiding something. Cody said Rey is hiding his fears and loathing thoughts for all of them. Cody said Rey is ashamed of himself. Cody said they are all wearing masks as well. Cody said he can see through their masks and see their envy of him. Cody said he can see their looks of despair knowing their lives are miserable. Cody said they all hope that things are worse for their neighbors and friends and families. Cody said they can’t even stand to look at them and he doesn’t blame them but tonight he’ll offer a remedy at his expense. Cody’s assistants handed out the paper bags. Cody said he wanted them to cover their faces because they will cover their lying eyes, their black heads, their teeth and faces until he is hopefully drafted to RAW or defeats Rey Mysterio. Cody said he had a paper bag saved for Rey. Rey reversed a power bomb into a hurricarana for the 3. After the match Cody attacked Rey and they brawled all over the arena. Cody wound up hitting Cross Rhodes on the floor. Cody then took a paper bag and put it on Rey’s head.
