Winner by DQ: Sheamus
-Wade Barrett and Kofi Kingston in the back. Barrett questions Kofi's choice of opponents for "Champion's Choice", and Kofi says he's beaten Barrett, but won't have any problem doing it again and accepts his challenge.
-Brad Maddox poking around in Punk's locker room, and asks Heyman for a job, who succinctly tells Maddox to get out of the room, the arena, and his life, with Punk giggling at the scene.
-Mae Young and the party guests now, with a doctor coming in becuase Mae's suffereing from "stomach cramps" and they lay her on a table. Oh no, don't tell me...cheesy soap opera music plays as the doctor says, "She's pregnant." Yep, they went there, again. Mae even says to us, "Not again." We're all thinking the same, Mae.
-Eve out and questions Mae's excuse for getting out of the match, and looked forward to defending against a Hall of Famer, and asks to be declared winner by forfeit. Kaitlyn out now, and lays into Eve big time with right hands, then throws her to the outside and into the barricade. Kaitlyn and Eve clawing at each other now. CAT FIGHT! Eve and Kaitlyn tug-of-war over the championship, and Eve escapes with it.
-Alberto Del Rio backstage with Ricardo Rodriguez, who wants to win the World Championship for Del Rio. Del Rio says Ricardo has been so loyal to him and yet Del Rio treated him like dirt. No one, even Del Rio himself, deserves to treat Ricardo like Big Show has, and he will be out there alongside Ricardo. He gives him his scarf, then tells Ricardo to do it "in style", handing him his car keys. THAT is how you do a face turn.
WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP: The Big Show v. Ricardo Rodriguez w/Alberto Del Rio
Ricardo out in style, just like Del Rio! Del Rio out at ringside to support Ricardo, who looks scared shitless. Ricardo with the single leg, that doesn't work. Big Show with the chest chop, THAT worked. Show chokes him in the ropes. He jaw jacks with Alberto and puts Ricardo up top. Ricardo with a kick, he ducks Show, and a run-up enziguri like Del Rio! Show misses a boot, LEG JAMMER by Ricardo! Show chops him out of mid-air though. He sizes him up for the KO Punch, but Del Rio in for the save.
