The show opened with the Peep Show segment involving Christian and guests John Laurinaitis and Teddy Long. Laurinaitis and David Otunga came out together to great heat. Long got a nice pop.
Christian asked Long and Laurinaitis to convince him which team he should be on. Laurinaitis said he’d give Christian a title shot if Team Laurinaitis wins, so Christian joined his team. Teddy tried to set up Christian in a match, but Johnny stopped it. Instead, they went with Kofi Kingston, now on Team Teddy, facing David Otunga, who wore his sweater vest.
1. Kofi Kingston defeated David Otunga. Otunga worked the match in his regular pants, which split halfway through the match. Funny. Kofi won with Trouble in Paradise.
There was a Daniel Bryan and AJ segment. Bryan said the dress AJ was wearing looked better on the mannequin.
2. A.J. (w/Daniel Bryan) defeated Brie Bella (w/Nikki). No one seems to know which Bella Twin wrestled the match. Does it matter? Bryan won with a rollup.
Chris Jericho vs. Sheamus was announced as the main event.
3. Cody Rhodes defeated The Great Khali. Rhodes cut a promo before the match. He won with the Beautiful Disaster springboard kick.
Randy Orton came out to a big pop and the Orton vs. Kane match was made official for WrestleMania 28.
4. Big Show defeated Drew McIntyre. Show won a squash.
5. Mark Henry defeated Yoshi Tatsu. It’s turned into squash city.
Chris Jericho cut a great promo before Sheamus was introduced for the main event.
6. Chris Jericho defeated Sheamus via countout. Daniel Bryan’s interference led to Sheamus being counted out.
