“Yes, sir, we promised you a great main event…”
We start the show with "the voice of the WWE," Michael Cole. He requests our attention, and truly beleives that there is one man responsible for the carnage caused by The Big Show, and it is his gues at this time, John Cena. Cole wants to get to the point, Big Show knocked Cena out twice but many people say that it pales in comparison to last week. Brodus, Kofi, Truth, Santino, Ryder, Riley, all casualties of the Big Show. This could have all been prevented if Cena had done the right thing such as come out and suport Big Show, but instead Cena wanted to make jokes. It was more important for Cena to be a comedian than it was to support Show. Cole wants to know how proud Cena is. Cena makes a My Little Pony reference then calls Ace a bully. Cena brings up the fact that Cena was going to get rid of Ace, if Show only would have waited. Cole says that no one truly knows whether Show was going to get rehired or not, but since Cena is so self centered that he forgot all about this. It's not all about John, Cole says. Show did what he had to do to feed his family. He took the sure thing, and the sure thing was signing with Ace. The Big Show also decided that it was time to teach everyone a lesson. He also proved that he was a giant.
Cena says Show is a man that was money hungry. He got fired and hit some tough times. Big Show chose the easy way off, the sure thing. Cena doesn't judge anyone. It was his decision, but it wasn't us who turned our back on Show, it was Show that turned his back on all of us. Cole says that maybe Cena is jealous of The Big Show. Or jealous that Big Show won at Mania, or that he didn't get his ass handed to him by Brock for 20 minutes. Cole says that he has been an advocate of Cena since day one, but he's seeing him in a different light. Cole calls Cena overrated. He is hoping that Big Show finally puts every fan out of their misery. Before Cena gets carried away, he cannot strike an announcer.
The music of People Power hits and here comes motorized Johnny. He lets Cena know that tonight, Cena can choose his opponent tonight, and Cena quickly tries to choose Ace, but Ace cuts him off saying that he officially retired after Over the Limit. Anyone else is game, though. Cena considers his options, then decides that tonight he is going to face an opponent that he has been watching for years. A man who is uninteresting, overrated and being shoved down our throats every week...hmmmm. Cena chooses Michael Cole. Cole tries to talk himself out of the match with Ace, but Ace scoots himself off the stage and it looks like the match is made.
Backstage, Michael Cole is trying to talk to Ace about the match. Johnny says that there is a rumor going around that everybody's job is being evaluated. He says this is all about people power. Cole says that people do not want to see Cena beat the hell out of Cole. Ace grins after hearing the crowd and says, "Yes the do." He then tells Cole not to call him Johnny and get back to announcing.
Vickie Guerrero is out and is cut off after Excuse Me! by Michael Cole making his way to the announce table. She continues her announcment of Dolph Ziggler who comes out with a grin, ready for his match.
Match 1: Sheamus vs. Dolph Ziggler
Lock up but Dolph fights out with some rights. Sheamus sends Dolph into t he corner and hits some rights, then whips him into the corner again and Dolp hits an elbow. Ziggler runs nito Sheamus, floats over and tries for a sunset flip but Sheamus hits the Finlay Roll and a pin for 1...2..NO!. Sheamus grabs the chin of Dolph on the outside and pulls him towards the ropes. Sheamus hits the ropes then flies towards Dolph, but Dolph pulls the ropes and out goes Sheamus. Sheamus pulls Dolph out from under the ropes. He lifts up Dolph on his shoulder, Dolph floats over and tries to send Sheamus into the pole, but Shemaus stops it. Sheamus sends Dolph into the stair,s but Dolph hops atop them and joms to the opposite side. Vickie is here to yell at...
