US Champ Antonio Cesaro versus World Champ Albertooooooo Del Rioooooo in a Champion vs. Champion match...NEXT!
Champion vs. Champion: US Champion Antonio Cesaro vs. World Champion Alberto Del Rio
We go to the ring and out first comes Cesaro. Justin Roberts goes to introduce Del Rio but out comes Ricardo Rodriguez on crutches. He says his legs are weak but his voice is strong. Out next comes Del Rio, who praises Ricardo for his bravery and eventual stupidity, as there's NO possible way Swagger will go after Ricardo again.

Winner: Antonio Cesaro (Countout)
Following the match, Antonio is celebrating, but Alberto is incensed at both him and Swagger's assault and beats down on the US Champ, locking in the Cross Arm Breaker in a fit of rage to the delight of...well, no one, really. Seriously, the crowd's dead here. Don't know which is worse: Antonio of all people being fed to the main eventers, or that the crowd seems to be souring on the Del Rio-Swagger feud. Then again, it is Philly, so take the crowd reactions with a grain of salt.
We recap Punk's poignant words concerning "The Streak" and Taker's response.
Still to come, a Q&A with John Cena, The Rock and WWE Legends. Team Hell No are WALKING backstage as we go to commercial.

The SHIELD in rare 6-man tag team action on Raw, as we hear from Triple H concerning the "riveting" No Holds Barred-Retirement match stipulation for his rematch with Brock Lesnar.
We recap the contract signing and stip reveal from last week (Conveniently glossing over Heyman's badly-done, obvious blade job).
Triple H's music hits, and here comes "The Game." Cole and Lawler list HHH's credentials, from his 13 championships and his time in DX and Evolution to the brief on-air run as "COO" HHH.
Triple H puts Lesnar over as a destroyer, someone who can end careers in a heartbeat. Triple H has fought every day in his career like said career depended on it. Heyman thinks he has Hunter trapped up against the wall, but Triple H has advice for Lesnar: Come to WrestleMania like it's YOUR career on the line, because he won't be there to wrestle, he will be there to kick Lesnar's ass. Short, sweet, but somewhat lacking. Feels like a cookie-cutter promo here, and the crowd responded as such in lukewarm fashion.
As Trips takes his leave, Wade Barrett makes his entrance for his upcoming match. The two men meet on the ramp, and Barrett's expecting Hunter to make his way around the IC Champ instead of the other way around. Nuh-uh, Mr. Barrett. Trips goes low, and Barrett's left hurting as he's supposed to be in action...NEXT!

Miz quickly hits an atomic drop (PSYCHOLOGY!) and goes for the Figure Four, but... (Continues on next page)
