rope and kicks it. He delivers more shots to the leg. He drives Truth to the corner, splashes him, and locks in a full nelson. Truth fights out, but Cody with a kick to Truth. Disaster kick misses, and Truth hits the What's Up for three!
Sandow tries to ambush Truth, but Truth ducks him, delivers some ds rights and drives a fuming Sandow out of the ring.
We see a Coulter/Swagger YouTube video on "Jobs", where Zeb essentially states that whoever is crossing borders and taking jobs from "real Americans" should be wearing ski masks, as they are thieves and should be dealt with as such.
"The Real American" takes on "The Miz" later tonight!
Non-Title Match: WWE Tag Team Champions Team Hell No vs. The Primetime Players
Bryan looks like a damn gimp. He nearly grapples the ref, who has to explain to him he's the ref. Titus and Young confuse Bryan with dual whistles and Titus ambushes Bryan from behind. Young hits some boots, and Titus tags in, misses a splash, and Bryan rolls outside. He accidentally kicks Kane, but Kane just walks it off as Bryan trips back into the ring. Darren tags in, and misses a charge into the ring post. Bryan makes the tag, and Kane lays a one-handed smackdown to Young, with clotheslines in the corner and a reverse elbow. Goozle to Young! Boot to Titus, Young fights out and kicks the knee of Kane, but Kane goozles him again. Chokeslam! Three count!
That was some "great" rumor killing there, Titus. If the Players can't win like this, I'm not hopeful on a future tag title reign.
Winners: Team Hell No
Daniel finally loses the blindfold and acts like he can see for the first time.
The Shield addresses the WWE Universe...NEXT!
We recap Heyman and Vince's "fight, Brock Lesnar confronting Vince, and HHH returning and opening up a can of whoop ass on Lesnar big time.
The Shield's music hits, and they make their way through the crowd. Ambrose take the lead on the mic. He says it's going to keep getting worse for the WWE. There won't be peace until justice has been delivered. They are dominant, and it makes the guys in the back uncomfortable. He doesn't care, assemble any supergroup, it'll all end the same. Roman Reigns says if you don't believe in the Shield, justice will haunt you and grind your bones to dust. Seth Rollins tells us there's no one left, they won at TLC, they solved the "Cena problem" at Elimination Chamber, and Rollins personally took down Jericho with a knee to the skull. There's no one left to challenge them...except Sheamus, who's itching to fight and going nowhere. Ambrose and Reigns exit the ring...RANDY ORTON SLIPS IN! ARRIVE! RKO! LEAVE! Ambrose and Reigns are fuming as Sheamus and Orton have turned the tables and kicked the proverbial hornets' nest of the Shield.
Miz and Swagger fight...NEXT!
"The Real American" Jack Swagger w/Zeb Coulter vs. The Miz
We're reminded of how the match came about, with Swagger ambushing Miz while he was confronted by COulter.
Miz afire early with left hands and a big back body drop to the outside. Miz dives to the outside, but Swagger catches Miz and drills him into the ringside mat. Back in the ring, Swagger delivers some shots to Miz's back. Miz tries to fight back, but Swagger whips Miz to the corner and drives his knee into Miz several times. Chickenwing cinched in by Swagger. Miz fights out, but Swagger with the clothesline. He slams Miz, and hits the Swagger Bomb for a near fall on Miz. Swagger with the armbar on Miz, who fights out and hits his combination neckbreaker for a two count. Miz runs into a big spinning slam by Swagger for another near fall. Miz driven to the corner, but he fires up with left hands, a big boot, and the running clothesline splash! Double sledge gets a near fall. Miz goes for a boot to the head, but Swagger shoves him into the ropes, and Miz gets caught by the boot in the ropes. Swagger kicks the leg of Miz, and as soon as Miz is untangled, BIG chop block by Swagger that nearly flips Miz 360. Patriot Lock is in, and Miz has no choice but to tap.
Good aggression by both Miz and Swagger, and Miz is turning out to be more and more of a decent face foil for the main event heels.
Winner: Jack Swagger via Submission
We see Sonic's new "Sweet and Spicy Slam" being eaten by Lawler...and just Lawler. Last time I checked, Sonic's not too high up on heart-healthy eats, Jerry.
We recap Rock presenting the brand spankin' new WWE Title (still leagues above the Spinner) and Cena coming out to confront Rock, only to get waylaid by Punk and the old WWE Championship.
We get a Tout from Triple H. The asskicker is back, and it's up to Brock whether he just wants to stand around and bleed, or wants to do something about it. Short and concise, and I like it. Fan touts out now, and most of them state Triple H will take Lesnar down.
Josh Matthews with John Cena, who says it's Thunderdome in Dallas. Two men walk in, one man walks out with a ticket to Wrestlemania. Punk, the man who says Cena made a mistake, is wrong about Cena's decision to put his shot on the line. Punk's title reign and Cena's title reigns don't matter anymore. It's put up or shut up, and there's no second place. John Cena's back, everyone knows what that means. He doesn't care what the Rock is cooking, or that Punk is the Best in the World. He's ready to serve up humble pie to all his critics and if you still believe in Hustle, Loyalty, and Respect, then know that "their" time is over and "our" time is now!
I didn't really do that promo justice as Cena really drove the point home that this is the beat all, end all for either him or Punk, and there won't be any excuses at the end of the night. Strong, effective words from Cena.
We see a TOUT of the Deadman himself, The Undertaker, making his return over the weekend at a... (Continues on next page)
