She said she’s the longest-reigning Divas Champion in history. She tells us it’s okay to cheer.

Cameron makes her way to the ring as Michael Cole explains the situation with Naomi, which AJ was referring to a few seconds ago.
The bell sounds and our WWE Divas Championship match is officially underway. The announcers talk about how Cameron has improved in the ring over the past several months.

After The Match: Bad News Barrett Part 4
Bad News Barrett comes out again. He addresses the fact that his podium isn’t raising anymore. He says that gives him more time to deliver some bad news. He talks about the WWE Network. He says there will be so much great content that people won’t be able to turn it off. Because of that, adults will lose their jobs and kids will get kicked out of school. He talks a little more trash and that ends another Bad News Barrett segment, our fourth of the evening.
Backstage Segment: Santino, Emma, Los Matadores & El Torito and The Great Khali
Backstage, Santino Marella is playing with some WWE toys. Emma walks up. She asks if he’s playing with toys. He tries denying it. The Great Khali, Los Matadores and El Torito walk up. They all babble with one another about the toys. Long story short, they all start playing with the toys.
Batista vs. Alberto Del Rio
After the goofy backstage segment with the toys ends, we hear Batista’s theme music. “The Animal” makes his way to the ring. During his entrance, we see video highlights chronicling the history of the Batista and Alberto Del Rio feud. JBL gets his first “Mexico’s greatest export” reference out of the way during the video package. The video ends and we see Batista in the ring waiting for his opponent. Alberto Del Rio’s music hits and he makes his way out with a neck brace and crutches, in his street clothes.
As Del Rio limps his way to the ring with crutches, JBL gets his second “Mexico’s greatest export” line out of the way. Del Rio gets on the mic and talks about how Batista attacked him two weeks ago. He said because of that, he is not going to be able to compete tonight. Del Rio then drops the mic and cheap shots Batista with the crutch. He tears his street clothes off to reveal that he was wearing his ring gear all along. He continues to beat down Batista with the crutch. He takes the neck brace off as JBL drops his third “Mexico’s greatest export” references.
The fans chant for Del Rio attacking Batista and then break out into a “Si! Si! Si!” chant, the Spanish version of “Yes! Yes! Yes!” The ref calls for the bell and Batista goes after Del Rio. The crowd boo’s the hell out of Batista. Everytime Batista hits Del Rio, the crowd boo’s. Everytime Del Rio hits Batista, they cheer. The fans start chanting “Boo-Tista” over and over again. The announcers acknowledge the crowd reaction. Meanwhile, JBL drops his fourth “Mexico’s greatest export” reference. The crowd passionately chants “Daniel Bryan” again. Now they break out to an even louder “CM Punk” Chant. I think they’re making it pretty clear that they want no part of Batista in the WrestleMania main event.
The match continues, but the crowd is ignoring almost everything that they’re doing. They’re boo’ing Batista with a red-hot passion and chanting for random people. So far they’ve chanted “Boo-Tista” and chanted for guys such as Daniel Bryan, CM Punk, Chris Jericho, Rob Van Dam and Brock Lesnar.
Batista is finally starting to mount a bit of an offensive comeback. Anytime he does anything remotely resembling offense, the crowd boo’s the living crap out of him. At the same time, they are cheering for anything Del Rio does just to further show how much they hate Batista. They break out into another “Si! Si! Si!” chant as Del Rio goes to the top. Del Rio misses a big splash. Batista fires up and the crowd boo’s him insanely loud for it. Batista goes for the Batista Bomb and the crowd erupts with boo’s. Del Rio slides out the back door and avoids it, to which the crowd popped for enormously.
Del Rio winds up for the super kick, leading the fans in a “Si! Si! Si!” chant, but Batista avoids it. The crowd boo’s. Batista immediately counters into a Batista Bomb. The crowd boo’s. He hits it. The crowd boo’s. He pins Del Rio. 1-2-3. Batista wins. The crowd boo’s.

John Cena vs. Christian vs. Randy Orton (c) vs. Daniel Bryan vs. Cesaro vs. Sheamus

Each guy enters their chamber, by the way, as soon as they get in the ring. Out next is Daniel Bryan. The next two men, who will be starting the match off, are Cesaro and Sheamus (who come out in that order).

Bryan, who don’t forget, has his shoulder heavily taped up to sell the attacks from this past week, is a ball of energy. He’s flying all over the place, beating up both Cesaro and Sheamus. Both guys are on their knees and Bryan is taking turns blasting both guys with “Yes!” kicks. A loud “Daniel Bryan” chant breaks out as Bryan continues to control the action. Bryan hits Cesaro repeatedly with European uppercuts as the fans again begin to chant for Daniel Bryan.

A light “we want Lesnar” chant breaks out from his hometown fans in Minneapolis as Cesaro throws Bryan through one of the pods. The announcers point out that he went through it shoulder-first, noting that the shoulder that went through the pod was the heavily taped up, injured one.
Meanwhile, Sheamus nails Cesaro with a big DDT on the steel floor. Bryan is still down selling the spot that saw him crash through the pod.

All of the guys are battling all over the place now, as there are bodies flying everywhere.
Cesaro catches Cena with his trademark flying-European uppercut move. Not sure what to call it, but it’s the spot where he launches Cena up in the air and catches him coming down with a big European uppercut. Cena goes for the Attitude Adjustment on Cesaro but Bryan stops him by blasting him with repated “Yes!” kicks. All of the guys are down now.
