Winner: Ryback (NR)
The only thing different here was that one ran away. Losing interest...fast
Back to the show, and we've got Hornswoggle and Vince McMahon watching the recap of his imitation of JR. Vince claims that he's got some tips. He makes fun of JR's face, then says Stone Cold a few times. Fucked up....lol. He sends Hornswoggle out and here's John Cena. Cena tells Vince that the sooner Ace is out of the job, the better. Vince says that this is coming from someone that didn't do too well at Mania. Cena says that now, Mania wins and losses are how we measure success? Vince lost to Hogan, his son, etc. McMahon wants to change the subject, and wants to know if Cena can stop Show. Cena says that this Sunday, he's got Show. Cena brings up the words "You're Fired" and tells McMahon to use em tonight.
In comes Otunga. Otunga says that he only practices law when he--McMahon cuts him off and tells him that no one likes anyone that would actually pucker up and kiss another man's behind. He then says no offense to the man sitting on the couch, randomly; William Regal

Winner: The Big Show (*1/2)
Not every slaughter is fun to see. This was beyond boring, and it didn't add anything new, as we already knew that The Big Show was a wrecking machine.
Match 6: Sin Cara vs. Curt Hawkins
Lockup to start, and Curt works the arm. Sin Cara hops out of it and grabs the wrist. Curt gets a wrirst lock of his own, and he uses the ropes to bounce off and hit an arm drag.

Curt goes for his stalled power slam, but Sin Cara escapes, hits the ropes, and Hurricanrana into a faceplant for the pin and the win.
Winner: Sin Cara (*1/2)
Although it's fun to watch Sin Cara, this seemed stilted as if Curt just couldn't keep up.
Backstage, Daniel Bryan is stretching. Here's Vinnie Mac, wanting to wish him luck. Bryan questionsi it, considering McMahon's history. McMahon wants to ask him a question though. He says that if Bryan were walking down the street with groceries or somethin, no one would mistake him as a former champ, you see? Bryan tells McMahon that he's been fired once and he ended up proving him wrong, but they do have a lot in common. They are both self made success stories who defy expectations. McMahon says that he doesn't think he's ever finished ANYTHING in 18 seconds....
Before the next match, Heath Slater cuts an insignificant promo, claiming it's Time...Slater Time. Someone disagrees, though, claiming he's got the time all wrong because....it's VADER TIME!!!

Backstage, AJ is freaking out. CM Punk says that this is just Ace trying to get at Punk, so he is not going to let anything happen to AJ. He says all they have going for them is that they work together. AJ says, AND we really, really like each other. Punk tells her not to do anything crazy, and they're going to be fine. She says ok, then my TV goes black.... (Continues on next page)
