Welcome back to All Star Wrestling – results from December 14, 2012
World Title - Daniel Bryan (26/10/12)
Intercontinental Title – Brodus Clay (16/11/2012)
Tag Team Titles – Kane & John Cena (7/9/12)
European Title - Ryback (12/10/12)
Legends Title - Chris Jericho (19/10/12)
The show starts with Triple H coming to the ring with a mic. Triple H says it looks like we’ve set up one hell of a card for Supercard in two weeks’ time. There’s just one piece of the puzzle left to put in place, and that is who is going to be his partner against John Cena and Kane? Triple H says he has ruled out Kevin Nash, X Pac and the New Age Outlaws; though he does wish to thank them all for their efforts and they will be involved tonight in an eight man tag match against four of the contenders for the Intercontinental Title – Big Show, The Miz, Alberto Del Rio and Austin Aries.
Triple H says Cena and Kane aren’t off the hook tonight, and they will have to defend their Tag Titles once again, and tonight it will be against Christopher Daniels and Justin Gabriel. And just for the record, neither of those two will be Triple H’s partner either. Triple H says he isn’t known as the Cerebral Assassin for nothing, and he enjoys playing mind games, but all will be revealed next week. A Rocky chant starts in the crowd, countered by a Stone Cold chant, and Triple H just smiles to himself.
Triple H says with so many wrestlers getting ready for Supercard, tonight is an opportunity for some others in the back to show us all what they’ve got, and push for a spot in one of the three 20 Man battle royal matches at Resolution on January 25. And we’re going to start right now with the Usos against the British Invasion.

Zack Ryder comes to the ring and does his WWWYKI bit, before being joined in the ring by Big E Langston.

Heath Slater makes his way to the ring and says he should be having a match at Supercard. He says it’s all about politics. Slater says it’s ok though coz he plans on entering himself in one of the battle royal matches at Resolution and going on to become All Star Wrestling Champion. Trent Barreta makes his way to the ring and tells Slater he has to earn his spot. Trent says he has busting his ass all year, and that he is a former European and Tag Team Champion, but he too doesn’t have a spot on Supercard. The difference between he and Slater though is Trent has respect for every single guy in the back who busts his ass each and every week to get to the top, and he’s going to teach Slater about respect tonight.
After a high flying match with a lot of near falls, Heath Slater hits the jumping Russian leg sweep and makes the cover. 1 2 3

Jeff Hardy makes his way to the ring with a mic. He says he is blessed to still be here in All Star Wrestling, and he has had a great career, being a multi time Intercontinental and Tag Team Champion. But he is still asked about the epic ladder matches, the chair matches and the table matches he has had over the years. He says in two weeks, it will be an honour to be on the same team as Bully Ray. Jeff says he has taken some beatings over the years from Bully so it will be a nice change to put a beating on his brother Matt and Christian, who just had to interfere a few weeks back. This brings out Christian who tells Jeff that no one wanted to see Jeff Hardy V Bully Ray at Supercard. Christian says this match needed some star quality, and Jeff should be thanking him for interfering and setting up the match everyone wanted to see. Tyson Kidd comes to the ring and says he has all respect for Jeff Hardy for battling his demons and coming back to the top of the tree once again. Tyson says he is the last man ever to be trained at the famous Hart Dungeon, and Christian should have some respect. Christian says he could beat Bret Hart any day of the week, which causes Tyson to get up in his face. Kassius Ohno comes to the ring and tells Tyson Kidd that he should be worried about their match at Supercard with Antonio Cesaro and Kurt Angle, instead of flying the flag for the Hart Foundation. All four men square off and we have an impromptu match.
Christian and Tyson start off and Tyson gets on top with his speed and agility, before Christian tags Ohno in who overpowers Tyson with a brutal clothesline. Ohno goes for a pin, but Tyson kicks out on one. Ohno whips Tyson into the ropes, who ducks another clothesline, and slides under Ohno’s legs. As Ohno bends down, Tyson catches him with a shot to the chin, and Ohno recoils as Tyson tags in Jeff Hardy. Hardy goes to work on Ohno in the corner with elbows and chest shots. Ohno pushes Hardy back into the centre of the ring and tags Christian in. Christian drags Hardy to his feet and hits a series of elbows, forcing Hardy back into his corner, where Tyson makes the tag. Kidd goes after Christian and knocks him to the canvas, before looking for a sharpshooter. Christian crawls to the ropes to break the hold and again tags in Ohno, who nails the rolling elbow KO out of nowhere and makes the pin. 1 2 3
Kassius Ohno & Christian bt Tyson Kidd & Jeff Hardy
Backstage, Batista is asked to respond to Sheamus nailing him with the Brogue Kick last week. Batista says Sheamus got lucky last week, and caught him off guard, but that won’t happen again. At Supercard, Sheamus is in for the beating of his life, and after the match, Batista will walk away satisfied that he came back to do what he said he was going to do. Beat Sheamus within an inch of his damn life.
Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose and Wade Barrett are in the ring awaiting their opponents. European Champion Ryback is out next, followed by Intercontinental Champion Brodus Clay, and then World Champion Daniel Bryan.
Rollins and Ambrose immediately go after Ryback, knocking him out to the floor, and battling up the ramp, effectively leaving this a handicap match for Barrett. Ryback and Bryan go after him, and the numbers game soon catches up. Barrett escapes the ring and gets deliberately counted out.
Daniel Bryan, Brodus Clay & Ryback bt Wade Barrett, Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose
After the match, Barrett gets a mic on the floor, and tells Daniel Bryan he isn’t going to waste his energy in a meaningless battle like tonight. He is going to save all of his efforts for two weeks’ time at Supercard, when he will become the next All Star Wrestling World Champion.
Backstage, Chris Jericho is asked about his Legends Title defence against Sting at Supercard. Jericho asks if anyone has been watching lately? Did anyone watch last week? Chris Jericho and CM Punk decimated Sting and ol’ Mick Foley didn’t they? The same way Jericho will destroy Sting in two weeks at Supercard. Jericho says he may just hang on to the Legends Title until 2015 when CM Punk is eligible to challenge, and that match would truly be the best in the world.
A triple threat match is up next, as contenders in the Intercontinental Title Elimination Chamber match make their way to the ring; Kofi Kingston, Damian Sandow and Dolph Ziggler.
Each wrestler size each other up before Sandow and Ziggler attack Kofi, knocking him into the corner. Ziggler launches himself at Kofi with a splash, and Kofi staggers into the middle of the ring to be knocked down by Sandow. Sandow makes a cover, but Dolph pulls him off. Sandow looks indignant and Dolph attacks him with a flurry of punches, knocking Sandow against the ropes. Dolph clotheslines Sandow over the top rope and taunts him from over the rope before turning around into Trouble in Paradise from Kofi. Kofi makes the cover. 1 2 Sandow grabs Kofi’s foot and puts it on the ropes for the save. Sandow gets back in the ring and now he and Kofi double team Ziggler. Sandow hits Ziggler with the Elbow of Disdain, before Kofi follows up with the Boom Drop. Kofi covers, but Sandow drags him up and tosses him over the top rope. Sandow turns back to Dolph who leaps up to put Sandow in the submission sleeper hold. Sandow starts to fade and the referee raises his arm. It drops once, twice….three times and the referee calls for the bell.
Dolph Ziggler bt Damian Sandow, Kofi Kingston
Backstage, Sheamus laughs off Batista’s threat to finish him. Sheamus says it is he who finished Batista back in 2010, and he will finish him again at Supercard. He says the Batista Bomb hasn’t been seen for two years, while the Brogue Kick was seen in full effect just last week. Sheamus gets serious and says Batista is going to be sorry he ever stepped back into All Star Wrestling, coz fella, I’ve retired your dumb arse once, and I can do it twice.
Oh you didn’t know? Your ass better call somebody!!! Road Dogg, Billy Gunn, X Pac and Kevin Nash make their way to the ring for their match which is up next. Austin Aries is out first and gets in the faces of the Kliq, not backing down. Alberto Del Rio is out next and he waits in the corner. The Miz is next to the ring, followed by Big Show who makes a point of getting right in the face of Kevin Nash as the bell rings.
We start off with The Miz and Billy Gunn. Both are evenly matched, but Gunn gets Miz in a headlock and drags him over to the corner to tag in Road Dogg, who ships Miz into the ropes and nails him with a knee to the gut. Road Dogg drags Miz up and looks for the pump handle slam, doggy style. Dogg nails it and makes a cover. Miz kicks out on one, and tags in Austin Aries. Aries goes after Dogg with forearms and elbows, forcing him into the corner. Aries looks for the brain buster off the second rope, but X Pac breaks up the move. Aries dares X Pac into the ring, but Dogg tags in Kevin Nash instead. Nash towers over Aries, but Aries refuses to be intimidated and unleashes chops and kicks to Big Sexy. Nash eventually overpowers Aries and tosses him back into his corner, where Big Show makes the blind tag. Show and Nash square off and Nash starts talking trash while Show chests him across the ring back towards his own corner. Nash looks for a punch but Show blocks it and hits the WMD, causing Nash to fall to the mat, but not before X-Pac can make a blind tag. X-Pac tries to nail Show with his martial arts kicks, but Show swats him down to the mat. Aries, Miz and Del Rio get in the ring and start to attack Show from behind as this one breaks down. They all combine to hit Show with a triple DDT before Miz hits the Skull Crushing Finale. Del Rio locks on the cross arm breaker, before they drag him to the corner. X-Pac nails show with the Bronco Buster, before they all drag Show to the middle of the ring. Miz, Del Rio and Aries hold Show down while X-Pac hits a splash from the top rope and makes the cover. 1 2 3
Kevin Nash, X-Pac, Billy Gunn & Road Dogg bt Big Show, The Miz, Austin Aries & Alberto Del Rio
After the match, Brodus Clay comes to the ring and Miz, Del Rio and Aries escape the ring. Kevin Nash recovers and he and Clay drag Show to his feet and hit a double jack knife power bomb. Clay shakes hands with all of the Kliq before standing over Show lying in the middle of the ring.
Backstage, Sting is asked to respond to the comments earlier tonight by Chris Jericho. Sting simply says he has said all he has to say, and he will do all his talking in the ring at Supercard in two weeks.
Bully Ray comes to the ring followed by Kurt Angle. They are joined in the ring by Matt Hardy and Antonio Cesaro for a tag team match. Bully and Matt immediately battle outside of the ring and Bully slams Matt into the barricade as Cesaro and Angle square off in the ring. Cesaro takes Angle down to the mat but Angle counters and gets Cesaro in a reverse chin lock. Cesaro rolls through and captures Angle in a half nelson on the mat, as Matt recovers on the outside and leaps from the announce table to take down Bully Ray on the steel steps. In the ring, Angle breaks the hold and gets Cesaro set up for a German Suplex. Angle nails it and hold on to hit a second and then a third. Cesaro rolls away but Angle makes the cover. 1 2 Cesaro kicks out. Cesaro gets back to his feet and nails Angle with forearms and high knees before knocking him to the mat with a European Uppercut. Outside the ring, Bully has recovered and picks up Matt Hardy and hits the Bully Bomb on the steel steps. Cesaro meanwhile looks for the Neutralizer, but Angle crawls out of it and gets Cesaro in the ankle lock. Cesaro tries to make his way to the ropes, but Bully is there to stop him getting there. Matt Hardy comes back and nails Bully from behind before assisting Cesaro to the ropes, forcing Angle to break the hold. As Angle argues with Matt, Cesaro nails Angle from behind with an elbow to the head, and Angle turns around into another devastating European Uppercut. Hardy holds Angle’s legs out of sight of the referee as Cesaro covers. 1 2 3
Antonio Cesaro & Matt Hardy bt Kurt Angle & Bully Ray
Jack Swagger comes to the ring with a US flag and says he is the true All American American and at Supercard he cannot wait to raise two US flags and put Derrick Bateman to shame. Bateman comes out to the Real American music again, with a flag of his own, and says he is the true American Hero and he too cannot wait to drape himself in tow Old Glory flags at Supercard. Triple H’s music hits and he makes his way to the ring with a mic. Triple H says he appreciates how much both Swagger and Bateman love their country and how much both are prepared to defend the honour of the US flag at Supercard. He says that this match needs something else though. Something a little bit more special worthy of a Supercard bout. Something a little more American. Something more a little Real American. The music of Real American hits and Hulk Hogan makes his way to the ring.
Hulk looks at Swagger and Bateman and says You know something brother? I appreciate the passion you both have for this great country. Nobody appreciates that more than the Hulkster. So when Trips called me up and said can I be a part of this match there was no way I could knock him back. So in two weeks brother, at Supercard, it’s going to be a Flag Match. Derrick Bateman and Jack Swagger in this very ring, with a special guest referee. The REAL American, Hulk Hogan. Triple H claps as the crowd goes nuts for Hogan.
CM Punk comes to the ring and starts saying how Mick Foley tries to portray himself as an outsider. He says Sting last week wasn’t his first tag team partner. Foley has always been ready to be a tag team partner when it suits, whether it’s The Rock, Terry Funk, Stone Cold Steve Austin or any number of other wrestlers. Punk says the whole idea of Foley being a loner is laughable, and he fully expects to encounter some of Foley’s colleagues at Supercard in two weeks. So tonight, he is calling out one of Foley’s forgotten partners to make an example of him, and teach Foley a lesson; that anyone interfering in their match at Supercard will be dealt with accordingly. So, let’s bring him out to the ring. Let’s bring out….Al Snow…
Snow tries to hook up with Punk early, but Punk counters into an arm bar and then a half nelson before nailing Snow from behind with punches and elbows to the back of the head. Snow falls to the mat and Punk drags him to his feet and hits the GTS for the cover and win.
CM Punk bt Al Snow
After the match, Punk stalks Snow before locking him into the Anaconda Vice. Snow is tapping out but Punk refuses to break the hold. Mick Foley runs down to the ring and CM Punk breaks the hold to square off against Foley. Both trade punches back and forth before the sound of the glass breaks, and Stone Cold Steve Austin comes down the ramp! Foley and Punk stop in their tracks as Austin gets in the ring with a mic.
Austin says no one thought that Triple H could just bring back Hulk Hogan as a special guest referee and expect old Stone Cold to sit at home and watch now could ya? Stone Cold says he’s gonna be a better damn special guest referee than Hogan ever could, and in the match between Mick Foley and CM Punk he’s gonna call it straight down the line. And to prove it…..Stunner to CM Punk!! Stunner to Mick Foley!! Austin calls for some beers in the ring to celebrate as his music hits.
Christopher Daniels and Justin Gabriel make their way to the ring for their shot at the Tag Team Titles in the main event which is next.
John Cena and Kane come to the ring and we start off with Cena and Gabriel. Gabriel looks for some forearms and chops, but Cena overpowers him and has him against the ropes. Cena whips him across the ring and knocks him down with a shoulder block. Cena tags in Kane who picks up Gabriel and places him onto the top rope. Kane looks for a chokeslam, but Gabriel fends him off and hits a modified hurricarana off the top rope, before tagging in Daniels. Daniels hits the BME on Kane and covers. 1 2 Kane kicks out. Daniels drags the Big Red Machine to his feet and hits chops and kicks into a corner, but gets pushes back into the middle of the ring. Kane tags in Cena who nails Daniels with a shoulder block before doing the You Can’t See Me shtick and hitting the five knuckle shuffle. Cena lifts Daniels up for the Attitude Adjustment, but Gabriel rushes the ring only to be met with Kane looking for a chokeslam. Both Cena and Kane hit their finishing moves and Cena makes the cover. 1 2 3
John Cena & Kane bt Christopher Daniels & Justin Gabriel to retain the Tag Team Titles
After the match, Triple H comes to the ramp entrance and mock applauds.
As Triple H stands on the top of the ramp, Ric Flair’s music hits. Triple H smiles as Flair joins Triple H at the top of the ramp. Cena & Kane look on from the ring, and we may have found our last piece of the Supercard puzzle as All Star Wrestling goes off the air.

Welcome back to All Star Wrestling – results from December 21, 2012
World Title - Daniel Bryan (26/10/12)
Intercontinental Title – Brodus Clay (16/11/2012)
Tag Team Titles – Kane & John Cena (7/9/12)
European Title - Ryback (12/10/12)
Legends Title - Chris Jericho (19/10/12)
We recap last week’s three big returns to All Star Wrestling – Hulk Hogan who will be the special guest referee in the flag match between Derrick Bateman and Jack Swagger; Stone Cold Steve Austin, who will also be a special guest referee in the match between CM Punk and Mick Foley; and Ric Flair, who joined Triple H at the top of the ramp as last week’s show went off the air.
Tonight we start with Flair’s music hitting and the Nature Boy making his way down to the ring with mic in hand. Flair says he knows what we’re all thinking. That Ric Flair is going to partner Triple H next week at Supercard in the match against Kane and John Cena for the Tag Team Titles. Flair says he is going to clear up this misconception right now. Flair said he came back to All Star Wrestling to stand alongside Triple H, and to be a part of Supercard. But he didn’t come back here to wrestle. He just came back here to be in Hunter’s corner. Flair says he knows as much as anybody about who Triple H is going to choose as his partner. But he sure is looking forward to the ride tonight as we find out who it’s going to be.
This brings Kane and John Cena to the ring and they get in Flair’s face. Cena asks Flair why he bothered to come back. To stand in a corner and watch? Why didn’t he just stay home and watch it all on TV? Cena says he and Kane are going to humiliate Triple H next week no matter if his partner is Kevin Nash, X-Pac, Ric Flair or anyone else. Flair gets in Cena’s face, and says nobody ever, ever has humiliated Triple H and Cena won’t be the one to start. Cena says to Flair how about he humiliates him right here tonight then? Cena calls Flair out for a match tonight. Flair gets flustered and takes off his jacket and tie and does a big WOOO! in Cena’s face. Daniel Bryan’s music hits and he makes his way to the ring looking pissed.
Bryan says Supercard is always the premier event of the year, but the World Title match is the main event of Supercard, and all of these has beens returning to All Star Wrestling are taking the spotlight away from the World Title at Supercard. He tells Ric Flair that he should just get out of his ring and go back to the retirement home where he belongs.
This brings out Triple H, who gets in the ring and tells Daniel Bryan he has a point. He says let’s bring the spotlight back onto Daniel Bryan. Triple H says Daniel Bryan will be in tonight’s main event as a warm up to Supercard. Bryan starts to do the NO chant, but Triple H tells him to settle down as it won’t be for the World Title. He says tonight Daniel Bryan will team up with Kane. And their opponents will be Triple H….and this man…
Wade Barrett comes down to the ring and starts unloading on Daniel Bryan. Kane tries to save Bryan, but Triple H nails him from behind and turns him around straight into a pedigree. Cena goes to look on Kane, but gets double teamed by Triple H and Ric Flair. Bryan and Barrett brawl up the ramp as Flair locks Cena into a figure four leg lock. Triple H steps back and laughs at Cena as Flair is screaming to Cena that if he wants a match, he’ll get one later tonight!
Jey Uso comes to the ring accompanied by Jimmy Uso. They are followed by Doug Williams. In a match of contrasting styles, with Williams trying to keep Jey on the mat, Doug catches Jey mid air from the top rope and nails him to the canvas and sets up the Texas Clover Leaf submission move for the win.
Doug Williams bt Jey Uso
Backstage, Ric Flair runs into Kurt Angle, and says he knows Angle effectively retired him at Supercard last year, and Flair has kept his word and hasn’t wrestled since. So if Angle wants him to pull out of the match with John Cena tonight, he’ll do so out of respect for Angle. Cena walks by and overhears and tells Flair he can’t believe he is already trying to weasel out of their match. Angle looks at Cena, then at Flair and tells Flair he has Angle’s blessing to go old school on his ass.
Trent Barreta and Richie Steamboat square off next against Heath Slater and Drew McIntyre. Steamboat and McIntyre start off and McIntyre uses his superior height and strength to get the upper hand. Steamboat makes the tag and Barreta flies around the ring, taking McIntyre off his feet. Slater tags himself in, but can’t keep up with Barreta who nails Slater with an elbow from the top rope and makes the cover for the win.
Trent Barreta & Richie Steamboat bt Heath Slater & Drew McIntyre
Backstage, we see Brodus Clay talking to Kevin Nash and X-Pac and saying he has the toughest match of all at Supercard – seven other men inside Elimination Chamber. Brodus says the odds are stacked against him and he could lose his belt without even being pinned. Nash says he knows a way to even things up a little, and let him talk to the boss.
Santino Marella is in the ring for a match against Big E Langston. Santino tries to get in some early offense but is beaten in a squash match as Langston hits the Big Ending.
Big E Langston bt Santino Marella
Christopher Daniels and Justin Gabriel come to the ring and Daniels says it’s a travesty that they do not have a match at Supercard next week. He says they intend to show their displeasure with whoever has the guts to face them right here right now. Titus O’Neil and Percy Watson make their way to the ring accompanies by D-Von. Titus and Gabriel start things off with Titus pushing Daniels back against the ropes and hitting him with some chops to the chest. Daniels escapes through Titus’ legs, and hits a dropkick to the back of the knee causing Titus to fall to the mat. Daniels tags in Gabriel and holds Titus down long enough for Gabriel to climb the ropes and hit an elbow and go for the cover. Titus kicks out on two and manages to tag in Watson. Percy goes right after Gabriel, and knocks him down with a shoulder tackle before hitting ShowTime and making a cover. Gabriel also kicks out on two, and crawls to his corner to tag in Daniels. Daniels ducks a shoulder block and jumps up onto the ropes and nails Watson with the BME. Daniels makes the cover. 1 2 3
Christopher Daniels & Justin Gabriel bt Titus O’Neil & Percy Watson
Mick Foley comes to the ring with a mic. He says he was goaded into his match with CM Punk at Supercard by being accused on an alleged injustice at Battle Royal which simply did not happen. Foley says he doesn’t mind too much as he is looking forward to getting his hands on Punk and making him stop whining, and start squealing like a little girl when he gets stuck in the Mandible Claw. Foley says what he doesn’t look forward to is another stunner from guest referee Stone Cold Steve Austin. Foley says he and Austin go back a long long time, and he doesn’t appreciate what happened last week. Foley calls Austin to the ring and he demands an apology from the rattlesnake.
Austin comes to the ring and says he has never apologised for anything is his damn life and he ain’t about to start now. He says Foley is right – they go back a long time, and Foley should know that Stone Cold does whatever the hell Stone Cold wants. But he says he felt a little bad about what he did last week to Ol’ Mick. He says he went home and had a beer to think about what he did. Then he had another beer. A third beer. A Bloody Mary. A vodka. A fourth beer. And then it came to him what he should do. He tells Foley he’s not going to do him any favours at Supercard next week and he’s going to call it straight down the line. But he is going to do Mick a favour tonight. He says he is going to talk to the boss and see if can get CM Punk a little warm up match for tonight. Foley likes the idea, and Austin says let’s toast it with a beer. Austin and Foley share a beer in the ring.
Tyson Kidd comes to the ring to meet Kassius Ohno as we’re reminded about the unusual stipulation in the four man elimination match at Supercard next week between these two men, Kurt Angle and Antonio Cesaro, with each competitor being rewarded with a title shot – the title dependent on when they get eliminated in the match. Tyson uses his experience in the Hart Dungeon to tie Ohno up in knots early, but Ohno powers out of every hold and eventually knocks Tyson down to the mat. Ohno picks Tyson up and hits a spinebuster, before grabbing him by the head and slamming his head repeatedly into the mat and making a cover. 1 2 Tyson kicks out. Ohno throws Kidd out of the ring and tells the referee to start the count. Tyson drags himself back into the ring on seven, sliding under Ohno and bouncing off the ropes to hit a missile drop kick from behind, forcing Ohno to drape against the ropes. Kidd climbs to the top and nails Ohno in the face with another high flying kick. As Ohno tries to get to his feet, Tyson climbs high again and knocks Kassius down with a flying elbow. Tyson goes for a cover, but Ohno kicks out. Tyson then grabs Ohno’s legs and looks to lock in the sharpshooter. Ohno makes his way to the ropes, but Tyson drags him back into the middle of the ring, forcing Ohno to tap out.
Tyson Kidd bt Kassius Ohno
Backstage, both Kevin Nash and Steve Austin are in Triple H’s office. Austin says he wants to make it up to Foley by putting CM Punk in a match tonight. Triple H says fine, Austin can choose Punk’s opponent. Nash says Brodus Clay needs some kind of advantage as the current Intercontinental Champion. Triple H asks him what he had in mind. Nash suggests an over the top rope battle royal match between the other seven competitors in the Elimination Chamber match. Triple H says he likes it. He likes it so much, it can be up next.
Austin Aries is first to the ring, followed by Damian Sandow, Kofi Kingston, The Miz, Big Show, Alberto Del Rio and Dolph Ziggler. Brodus Clay comes out to join the commentary team. The match starts with everyone going after Big Show, just as they did last week. Show swats them away, nailing Kofi with a head butt and Aries with a huge clothesline. Kofi reels around into Sandow who hits him with the strait jacket neckbreaker. Sandow and The Miz pick Kofi up and throw him over the top rope. As Sandow taunts Kofi, Miz rolls Sandow over the top from behind. Aries and Ziggler are fighting it out in one corner, while Miz goes back to attacking Big Show, as Del Rio watches on. Show lifts Miz up for the chokeslam and hits the move on Miz over the top rope with Miz falling to the floor. Aries and Ziggler are nailed from behind by Del Rio who tries to lift them both over the top rope. Big Show hits a spear on Del Rio from behind; the momentum forcing Ziggler and Aries out of the ring. Show waits for Del Rio to get to his feet and hits him with the WMD knockout punch. With Del Rio unconscious, Show picks him up and drapes him over his shoulder, lifting him over the top rope and onto the floor. Big Show is the last man standing and stares down at Brodus Clay who gets to his feet at the commentary table, but doesn’t move towards Big Show.
Big Show wins Battle Royal match
Backstage, Stone Cold is in CM Punk’s locker room. Punk says he too would demand an apology, but he knows there is no point. Punk tells Austin to tell him who his opponent is so he can get on with being the best in the world, just like he will prove next week when he takes out the broken down, ravaged carcass of Mick Foley. Austin just looks at Punk and says What? Punk says What? Austin says Sheamus! Austin smiles and walks away, leaving Punk fuming.
We stay backstage to see Bateman and Swagger arguing over who is the true American Hero, when they are interrupted by Hulk Hogan. Hogan says HE is the Real American and has been since Hulkamania started running wild nearly 30 years ago. Swagger says he was just a baby and didn’t see Hulk at his best, but he sees the fire in Hogan’s eyes and he knows an All American American when he sees one, and tells Hogan that he and Swagger are one and the same. Bateman tells Swagger babies shouldn’t play with fire and walks off, leaving Swagger and Hogan looking confused.
Antonio Cesaro makes his way to the ring, followed by Kurt Angle. They lock up and Cesaro has Angle in a half nelson, before chopping across the chest. Angle reverses it and replies in kind. They both go to the mat and conduct some classic chain wrestling before Cesaro locks Angle in a wrist lock on the canvas. Angle bridges out of the hold and the two square off again. They go for the test of strength, which Cesaro wins. He head butts Angle in the chest, before pushing him against the ropes and hitting a European uppercut. Angle’s lip is split and he wipes the blood from his mouth which fires him up. Angle unloads on Cesaro with forearms and elbows, before grabbing Cesaro and hitting a German Suplex. Angle covers, but Cesaro kicks out on one. Angle whips Cesaro into the ropes and hits a high knee, and then goes for the Angle Slam, but Cesaro counters, and hits a side Russian leg sweep on Angle and covers. Angle easily kicks out and both men are back on their feet staring each other down. They hook up again and Cesaro has Angle in a side headlock, but gets pushed to the ropes and shouldered to the mat. Cesaro bounces back up, but is knocked down again by Angle. Angle goes for Cesaro’s ankle, but Cesaro makes it to the ropes. They trade blows across the ring again until Cesaro knocks Angle down with a high knee followed by another European uppercut. Cesaro climbs the ropes as Angle regains his feet and hits the flying European uppercut from the top rope. Cesaro picks Angle up for the Neutralizer, but Angle slides underneath and grabs Cesaro’s ankle and locks in the ankle lock. Cesaro desperately reaches for the ropes, but Angle has it locked in tight, and Cesaro is forced to submit.
Kurt Angle bt Antonio Cesaro
Batista joins the commentary team as Sheamus comes to the ring for his match with CM Punk. Punk refuses to start the match and leaves the ring, leaving Sheamus taunting him from the middle of the ring. Batista jumps up from the commentary table and gets in the ring to deliver an awesome Batista Bomb to Sheamus. CM Punk decided to get back into the ring and makes the cheap cover. 1 2 3
CM Punk bt Sheamus
After the match, CM Punk goes to leave as Sheamus rolls out of the ring, but Stone Cold’s music hits and he comes down to the ring. Austin hits a stunner of CM Punk, and calls for a couple of beers. Austin and Batista share beers in the ring, before Sheamus sneaks back in and hits a massive Brogue Kick on Sheamus. Sheamus calls for another beer and drinks with Austin. CM Punk looks on with disgust as he leaves the ring.
Backstage, Chris Jericho is asked about Sting saying last week that he would do all of his talking next week in the ring. Jericho says he is the master of 1004 holds, and he will put on a clinic for Sting next week.

Triple H gets a mic and says he still has one piece missing from the puzzle that is Supercard. Flair joins Nash and X-Pac on the ramp and out to the back as Cena and Kane join Triple H in the ring. Triple H says they know now that Ric Flair will not be his partner next week at Supercard. They know it won’t be Kevin Nash or X-Pac; Billy Gunn or Road Dogg. Triple H says it’s time to reveal who his mystery partner is. At Supercard, for the Tag Team Titles it’s going to be John Cena and Kane against Triple H….and this man….
The lights go out. A gong is heard, and the crowd go wild. A blue light shines on the ramp and The Undertaker makes his way down the ramp slowly and gets in the ring to stand beside Triple H.
