drawing board, Mr. Maddox.
Winner: Randy Orton
-The Shield out now, blindsiding Orton and laying into him big time with boots and fists, then laying out Randy with their triple-team powerbomb. Orton licks his wounds as we're reminded AGAIN about MizTV and Punk's lie detector test.
-Dolph arguing with Vickie about his briefcase being put on the line, and questions whether Vickie is turning into a "power-hungry amateur" like AJ. He storms out, and Heyman now enters, staring down Vickie. Vickie says Heyman better hope that Punk tells the truth. Heyman walks out. Cena now in, thanking Vickie for the chance to win the briefcase and become champion again. Vickie shows Cena some hair bows of AJ's with Cena's picture on them. Cena calls Vickie on the "hack job" and says to let it go and quit wasting everyone's time. Vickie vaguely warns that history has a habit of repeating itself as Cena walks off.
-R-Truth, Kofi, Wade Barrett, and Antonio Cesaro out for a tag match. That is, before Teddy Long comes out. He says Mr. McMahon is trying to spice things up, and feels he should do the same. Instead of a tag match, we now have a Fatal Four Way championship match! Teddy making a tag match into something else? What a tweeest! It's up to the fans to decide which title will be on the line.
Fatal Four Way for the US Championship: Antonio Cesaro (c) v. Kofi Kingston v. R-Truth v. Wade Barrett
(I lost my net connection, so sorry if this seems rushed)
Kofi and Cesaro toss out Barrett and Truth respectively to start out the match. Kofi rolls up Cesaro for two, but Cesaro takes him down with a headbutt. Barrett takes Truth out on the outside as Kofi and Cesaro continue to scuffle in the ring. Kofi hits a slingshot kick on Cesaro in the corner, and Barrett takes Cesaro out of the ring with a clothesline, and Truth does the same to Barrett. Kofi and Truth, former tag partners, face off now, exchanging holds and roll-ups before Barrett and Cesaro come back in. Barrett whips Kofi, who counters into a lift by Truth into a mid-air punch on Cesaro. Kofi and Cesaro out to ringside. Kofi off the steps, gets NAILED with an uppercut by Cesaro, before which Truth was driven by Cesaro into the ring barrier, as we go to commercial...
Back from the break, it's bedlam in the ring. Truth with a gourdbuster to Cesaro and an axe kick to Barrett, which gets a two count. Kofi with a cross body to Cesaro for a two count, but Barrett hits the Winds of Change for a near fall. Barrett has Truth up for a superplex, but Kofi stops it and hits a powerbomb suplex for a near fall, broken up by Cesaro. Cesaro hits a slam on Kingston for a near fall, but misses a splash to the ropes and Truth takes him out to the floor. Kofi fires up on Barrett, but Cesaro pulls him out, and goes for the Neutralizer on Barrett, but Truth hits a calf kick to break that up. Barrett blindsides Truth and hits the Bullhammer, but Kofi nails him with the Trouble in Paradise, only for Cesaro to lift Kofi out of the pinfall and hits him with the Neutralizer for the three count to retain!
Winner and STILL US Champion: Antonio Cesaro
-We get what's hopefully the LAST reminder about Miz's lie detector test for Punk, and Heyman having to face Ryback if Punk's indeed lying about Maddox and the Shield.
-MizTV is now in session. Miz introduces the gentleman who will administering the lie detector test, and then says it will be QUITE interesting to see whether Punk can tell the truth or not. He introduces Punk, and out comes the WWE Champ with Heyman in tow. Miz welcomes him and "explains" the lie detector test. Punk questions why Miz is doing this. It's probably that Miz's reign was forgettable, and that all these soporific attempts are because he's envious, like everyone else is, of Punk. Miz pretty much ignores him, and starts with the questioning. What's his name? CM Punk. Is his reign as long as it's been? Yes. Was he shaved bald by Rey Mysterio? Punk reluctantly says yes. Did he lose to Randy Orton at Wrestlemania 26? Punk objects, saying people at least remember the match, while Miz couldn't remember his because of a concussion. Miz agrees, and says we'll ask some tougher questions. Did Punk work with Maddox? With the Shield?
-Before Punk can answer, the Shield is out, beating up Miz and tearing up the MizTV set, giving Miz the triple powerbomb. Team Hell No out now for revenge, taking it to the Shield. They're still outnumbered, but now RYBACK is out to even the odds and then some. Ryback tosses Ambrose to the outside and throws him into the crowd as Kane and Bryan deal with Rollins and Reigns. Punk back in the ring, talking trash and laying in boots to a downed Miz. He goes to the corner to raise his championship, but Ryback's waiting...and hits the Shell-Shock! Ryback goes out, gets a ladder, and nails Punk with it. Then a chair, and Ryback waylays Punk across the back. Last but not least, Ryback grabs a table, sets it up, loads up the WWE Champion, and DRIVES Punk through the table! Ryback's revenge has begun as the show fades to black.
-End of show.
