Fandango vs. Kofi Kingston
Fandango stretching out, dances out of a hold by Kofi. The crowd is humming Fandango's theme song...I officially love this Jersey crowd. Jericho hits the ring!
Winner by DQ: Fandango
Jericho is beating up Fandango all around the ring. He tosses him over the barricade, bounces him off the announce table (knocking JBL's hat off in a nice nod to their feud in 2008), and rolls him back in, locking in the Walls of Jericho before refs pull him off. Jericho calms down...NOT! Codebreaker to Fandango! And a pose to boot!
Fandango's announced the winner by DQ, and he still takes the time to pronounce his name correctly despite having the crap beat out of him. The crowd is dancing and singing his theme song...looks like Fandango got the "Bryan" Mania pop!
Cena's championship win is all over the talk show circuit. Cena vs. Henry still to come tonight!
Cole and company recap the Triple H-Brock Lesnar match, and despite the Kimura Lock a number of times, Triple H's arm is healthy.

Heyman asks HBK and HHH feel after getting smashed in by Brock Lesnar. Lesnar is ready to fight...next week. Punk would like to talk about his match against Taker and will do so...next week on Raw.

Cody sent over the top rope by Tensai, Sandow with rights to Tensai, but ends up *crunch* sandwiched by Tensai and Clay. Double SPLAT! gets the three count!

Cena's shoulder block doesn't work the first time, but knocks Henry down the second time and Henry rolls outside. He catches Cena coming out and bounces his head off the announce table. JBL's right, where's the Spanish Announce Table when you need it? Henry tries to put Cena through the table, but Cena slips out. AA attempt fails, but Cena shoves Henry into the steps. The ref's counting...Cena's back in, Henry's not.
