Winner: No Contest
Ryback and Axel take turns beating up on Punk for the majority of the match until Punk was able to make the hot tag to Langston in which Langston proceeded to cleaning house with some huge clotheslines to both opponents. Punk makes his way back in the ring as the illegal man and clotheslines Ryback over the top rope outside of the ring. Big E hits the Big Ending on Axel for the 1 2 3. I was expecting Punk to get the hot tag and make the save but it looks like the WWE are really trying to get Langston over and it works. The crowd was hot for Big E. After the match, Punk chased Heyman through the crowd but Heyman gets away. Punk celebrates with the fans.
Tons of Funk vs The Real Americans
This was a very quick match as it seems these four men wrestle every week. It was once again dominated by the Real Americans. Cesaro hit his Giant Swing on Clay and Swagger followed up with an ankle lock on Clay causing the quick tap out.
Winners: The Real Americans via submission
#1 Contender's Match for the Tag Team Championships
Cody Rhodes and Goldust are ringside guests on commentary. Cody & Goldust were very dry on commentary and didn't say much or seem enthused at all. It almost reminded me of that time when Tyson Kidd and David Hart Smith were Tag Champs year back and were on commentary while Michael Cole made fun of how boring they were. Both Cody and Goldust didn't really put their upcoming match over well but maybe its apart of their mysterious gimmick. Reigns spent most of the time in the ring and the irony is both the Uso's are his cousins. Very exciting match. All 4 men had great chemistry and hit their spots. Dean walks up to Cody jawing and mushes him in the face. This turns into an all out brawl as Cody & Goldust attack Dean which triggers Rollins to jump in. Reigns leaves the ring and he jumps in as well which then triggers the Uso's to jump in as well. The action leads back into the ring as Cody, Goldust and the Uso's clear the ring as the Uso's celebrate.
Winners: No Contest
Stephanie and Triple H are already in the ring. Justin Roberts introduced both Orton and Bryan. Then Triple H gives a very good entertaining introduction to Shawn Michaels as he makes his way down to the ring to a nice pop. Orton gives Bryan credit for always finding a way to get back up after every beat down but he say's that'll be a different story come this Sunday. He then goes in to say that he's survived HIAC with the Undertaker and beat both John Cena and Sheamus in that demonic structure. He promises that Sunday will be the first and last time Bryan in the Hell in a Cell. Daniel gets on the mic and thanks Orton for giving him that extra confidence in himself to keep getting back up. He also thanks Orton for proving he's a corporate phony and then thanks Triple H & Stephanie for exposing themselves as the huge corporate phonies they are as well.
Triple H say's Daniel Bryan reminds him of guys like RVD, Edge and Jericho. All great guys and top guys at one point, but never big enough to be the man. He say's if either of them ever where the man, we'd all be working for Ted Turner. Daniel demands that Triple H gets into his ring gear and fight him. Triple H verbally damages Bryan as he say's he only gets in the ring with A+ stars. He refers to the likes of The Rock, Brock Lesnar and the Undertaker. But he'd never waste his time on a B+ guy like Daniel Bryan. He then say's he doesn't even know why HBK trained Bryan.
HBK then say's that Bryan is a great wrestler. He asks what happened to the old Triple H. The one that was his bestfriend and would pull all those antics like stripping in the ring and driving to WCW. He say's Triple H has changed. Triple H looks HBK in the eye face to face and
