Non-Title Match: World Champion Alberto Del Rio vs. Cody Rhodes
We recap Del Rio's up and down week, with his victory over Show at the Royal Rumble, Show's revenge on him and Ricardo on Raw, then Show beating down
Cody with boots to Del Rio. Del Rio gets an elbow out of the corner, then a monkey flip. Cody slaps him, and Del Rio is ticked, laying into Cody with kicks, then a nasty shot to the arm for a two count. Cody counters Del Rio, then puts the boots to Del Rio into the corner. Alberto fights back with some clotheslines, then a sharp thrust kick for a near fall. Cross Armbreaker countered, Disaster Kick by Rhodes, which gets a near fall. Cross Rhodes countered, Cross Arm Breaker is in and Cody taps!
Winner: Alberto Del Rio
Del Rio on the mic. He realizes that he used to look down on the fans, and says that being bullied by the Big Show has opened his eyes. He thanks us for allowing him to win the World Title not just for himself, but for everyone who's worked hard to put food on their plate and has had endured bullying at the hands of monsters like the Big Show. He promises that what happened last Friday is nothing compared to what he will do this week.
Show on the Titantron, trying to calm Alberto down, who says Show has no cajones, and Show laughs it off. He's in a hotel off-site. Alberto calls him a coward, but Show says he's here because he could easily annihilate Del Rio if he were there. Heck, he could've done it last Friday, but he decided to let it go. He tells Del Rio all he wants is a rematch for the World Title at Elimination Chamber. He tells Del Rio to fax some papers through his "flunkies" and Show will sign them, and Alberto will get Show in a match. IF Del Rio tries to find Show in the hotel, the beating he gave Ricardo is nothing compared to what Show will do to Del Rio tonight.

We recap Rey and Sin Car's non-title victory over Team Hell No last Friday night. Then we see Bryan and Kane arguing over how Kane "cost" Bryan the match and how he hasn't been doing his "part" as his partner. Kane says it's a "shocker" how Daniel can't seem to take care of himself now. Bryan promises to prove that he doesn't need Kane's help, and orders him to stay back for the next match. Kane only looks on with disdain.
Rey Mysterio vs. Daniel Bryan
The two lightweight wrestlers exchange grapples, holds, and kicks to start the match. Rey with a kick to the head, then goes for a head scissors, but Daniel stops it and counters with a SWEET modified gut buster. He props up Rey in the corner for the Tree of Woe and hits some shoulder thrusts, but Rey dodges the third one and Bryan rams into the ring post and out of the ring as we go to break...
Bryan with a wristlock, then stomps Rey's elbow. He jams Rey's bad arm into his shoulder, then delivers some kicks to the arm. Rey rolls through a toss to the outside, but Bryan counters him with a baseball slide. Rey fires back with a forearm. Back in the ring, Rey up on Bryan's shoulders, rolls through, and kicks Bryan in the face for two. Rey whips Bryan into the ropes for a 619, but Bryan catches him and locks in the No! Lock, but Rey counters into a roll-up for a near fall. Rey trips up Bryan, hits the 619, up top to Drop The Dime...but he misses! Bryan locks in the No! Lock. Rey taps!
Winner: Daniel Bryan
Bryan celebrates, but MARK HENRY'S music hits! Oh, somebody's wig gonna get split, and maybe a beard too, as Henry easily dispatches of Bryan, storms the ring, and tears into Mysterio with a spinebuster and drags him to the corner. Sin Cara out, but Henry catches him on the cross body and drill him with the World's Strongest Slam. He goes back to drop down on Rey, who somehow fights back, but Henry just drops him with the WSS as well. Henry up top, World's Strongest Vader Bomb! He tosses out Sin Cara as he screams "THAT'S WHAT I DO!" I think we've got a front runner for the Elimination Chamber...
Punk vs. Jericho, coming up later.
Bryan catches up with Kane in the back, and demands why he wasn't out there. Kane said he followed Bryan's orders. Bryan asks since when does Kane listen to him, and demands an apology. Kane says Bryan's words hurt and their friendship is stronger than that. Bryans asks if that's true. "HELL NO!" He laughs as Bryan sulks.
We recap Heyman being caught by Mr. McMahon in his lie about not being associated with either Brad Maddox or the Shield, about to be fired, but "The Beast" Brock Lesnar makes his presence know, hits the ring, and Vince warns him to not do anything he'd regret, only for Brock to F-5 Vince, "shattering" his hip to the point he needed hip replacement surgery. More updates as they come in.
Show in his hotel suite, impatient with Booker over when the contracts for his match with Del Rio will be delivered. A knock on the door...and it's room service with an awfully small meal for the big man. The room service man asks for a tip. Show's tip: "Get a better job." Ouch.
