Los Matadores vs. The Real Americans
Los Matadores come out first with El Torito. The Real Americans, with Zeb Colter, are out next. Colter’s got a mic and he says it’s funny that tonight is called Hell in a Cell, because their opponents belong in cells because they’re criminals, and about 80 percent of the crowd probably is too. Zeb also calls out Torito, saying he assaulted and attacked a United States war veteran in Colter. He’s embarrassed that they have to breathe the same air as these three tonight, and that’s no bull. Colter concludes by asking us to put our hands over our hearts, and in a loud clear voice repeat, “we…the people.” With that said, the match begins.
Diego and Cesaro start for their respective teams. Diego attempts to use his speed against Cesaro, scoring with a couple of quick head scissors. Diego ends up caught though, when Cesaro tosses him to the outside, and tags out to Swagger. Swagger hits a spear on the floor before bringing things back into the ring and hitting a Swagger bomb. Cesaro tags in and hits a nice senton for two. Cesaro backs Diego into his own corner and tags out to Swagger who hits a series of knees to the gut and a short-arm clothesline. Cesaro tags back in and clamps on a rear chin lock. Diego fights out of the hold, and backdrops an interfering Swagger to the floor. Cesaro catches the other Matadore with a big boot.
Cesaro traps Diego with the giant swing. Cesaro spins Diego around at least thirty times, pinning Diego for two, but it’s broken up. Cesaro is caught with an enzugiri, and both men make the tag. The other matador tags in and goes to work on Swagger, hitting him with a flurry of offense that ends with a huge DDT. Things are broken up by Cesaro. Back in the ring, Swagger launches himself into Diego’s knee, and clamps on the ankle lock. Diego fights out of it. Then they get the finish, with both Los Matadores’ scoring a double face buster. 1-2-3. Los Matadores pick up the victory.
Winners: Los Matadores
After The Match:
Colter is in the ring on his heads and knees crying. Los Matadores see him and they toss El Torito into a head scissors on Cesaro. Zeb is thrown to the floor. Torito comes off the top and dives to the outside on Swagger. Los Matadores and El Torito celebrate their win to end this match officially.
World Heavyweight Championship:
-Alberto Del Rio (c) vs. John Cena
After they re-air the long video package documenting John Cena’s road to recovery, we head back inside the arena for our World Heavyweight Championship match. Out first is the champion, Alberto Del Rio. Out next is the challenger, John Cena, who receives an enormous reaction, and actually a mostly positive one. Still some boo’s mixed in there, but it sounded on television to be around 80/20 in favor of cheers. Lilian Garcia formerly introduces Cena, and then introduces Del Rio in Spanish. The positive reaction for Cena didn’t last long, as we already have our first “let’s go Cena, Cena sucks” dueling chants from the fans in the American Airlines Arena.
The bell rings and Cena goes right for a side headlock. Del Rio goes right for the arm, backing Cena into the ropes. Cena rolls to the outside and adjusts the padding on his arm.

Cena follows with a drop kick, but he runs right into a big back elbow. Del Rio charges in with a big stomp to the chest, then he goes to the top rope, leaping off with a sloppy forearm that’s good for two.

Del Rio makes it to the ropes and Cena is forced to break the hold.
The two exchange a few turns as having the momentum on their side offensively, until another series of submissions and reverals leads to the finish. Del Rio locks in the Cross Armbreaker again on Cena. He takes the padding off of Cena’s arm, which apparently makes the move hurt worse, at least according to the announcers. Cena powers his way out, picking Del Rio up, while still in the Cross Armbreaker. This leads to Cena hitting the Attitude Adjustment on Del Rio. Cena covers Del Rio. Cena gets 1. Cena gets 2. Centa gets 3. We have a new World Heavyweight Champion, Cena’s third time holding this particular title. No cash-in by Damien Sandow either, so it’s official. Cena celebrates a bit and eventually heads to the back with his new title belt.
