JACK SWAGGER’S ALL AMERICAN AMERICAN HOMECOMING CELEBRATION Jack Swagger & Swagger’s Soaring Eagle + Edge: The ring was decorated and Jack Swagger was wearing a cape. Jack had his own mascot dressed like a bald eagle. Jack thanked everyone. Jack said he had a huge announcement. Jack said he had a problem with every single Oklahoman in the building. Jack said he had a problem with the state of Oklahoma. Jack said he put them on the map and when he returned he didn’t even get a parade. Jack said he wanted a day or a key to the city. Jack said him and his mascot the Swagger soaring eagle have moved out of Oklahoma. Jack said they moved to somewhere bigger and better; Texas. Jack said God bless Texas. Jack made fun of their sports team. Jack said him and his mascot are going to be the bigger men and continue to give back. Jack said he is their king. Jack said there is only one person qualified for this coronation, so by the power invested in him, he proclaims himself the official undisputed king of Oklahoma. Jack put on a crown. Edge came out. Jack said he was busy. Edge said after he was involved with the computer on RAW he told himself he was going to go on a mission to rid the WWE landscape of anything stupid. Jack said he’s got his own personal mascot, that’s not stupid, it’s cool. Edge said the mascot was ridiculous. Jack told Edge not to talk that way about his eagle. Edge said the fact that he named it that is stupid. Edge said the podium is stupid, the stupid cape is stupid, and the stupid crown is stupid. Edge said he’s going to start his mission right now. Edge hit the eagle with a spear.
BACKSTAGE SEGMENT The Nexus (Wade Barrett & Heath Slater & Michael Tarver & Justin Gabriel & David Otunga): Wade said what they did earlier was impressive but if they really want to make history then they need to push the envelope further. Wade said no one is allowed to touch them and they’re the lumberjacks during Cena’s match, so they need to talk strategy.
DCR GROOMING TIPS: “Dashing” Cody Rhodes told us how to use deodorant. Cody prefers clear gel to prevent unflattering white residue.
5 ON 1 HANDICAP MATCH The Nexus (Wade Barrett & Justin Gabriel & David Otunga & Michael Tarver & Heath Slater) defeated The Big Show: Big Show swatted them off until Wade hit a running kick to his skull.

Alberto said he was there to give him a big kiss right on the cheek. Alberto introduced Rey Mysterio. Alberto’s ring announcer came down to the ring holding a Chihuahua in a mask and a bandage around its arm. Alberto said sorry. Alberto said he’s sorry because he hurt him. Alberto kissed the dog.
