Alberto Del Rio def. Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston (Non-title match) Justin Gabriel def. WWE Tag Team Champion Vladimir Kozlov Drew McIntyre def. Chris Masters Wade Barrett def. Rey Mysterio Kane def. JTG Divas Champion Eve def. Layla World Heavyweight Champion Edge vs. Dolph Ziggler (World Heavyweight Championship Match)
GREEN BAY, Wisc.– With WWE Elimination Chamber just nine days away, the future of the World Heavyweight Championship was left in a sea of uncertainty. And as SmackDown came to a close, the WWE Universe was left wondering just who is the World Champion?
World Heavyweight Champion Edge vs. Dolph Ziggler for the World Heavyweight Championship Match (WATCH | PHOTOS) Prior to the main event, the self-appointed Special Guest Referee Vickie Guerrero reaffirmed that Edge’s Spear was still banned. If he opted to use it against Dolph Ziggler, he would be disqualified and the “acting” GM’s bleach-blond boyfriend would automatically become the new World Heavyweight Champion.
In the peak of the heated championship showdown, Vickie attempted to spear Edge herself, only to hurt her ankle. The Ultimate Opportunist seized the moment and hit the banned Spear on Ziggler two separate times. The Green Bay Packers' Clay Matthews then charged to the ring as a second Special Guest Referee, making the three-count to secure Edge’s victory. However, the outcome of SmackDown’s main event became unclear when the injured Guerrero waved-off The Rated-R Superstar win. Who is the rightful holder of the World Title? Green Bay Packers come to SmackDown
Divas Champion Eve def. Layla (WATCH | PHOTOS) Still feeling the heat from being pinned by Kelly Kelly in the 3-on-2 Mixed Handicap World Heavyweight Title Match one week ago, Layla fell short yet again. Despite a distraction from Michelle McCool, the English-born Diva ended up losing her match after Divas Champion Eve reversed her pin attempt.
Kane def. JTG (WATCH | PHOTOS) Just nine days before Kane will attempt to reign supreme over five other Superstars at WWE Elimination Chamber, The Big Red Monster laid waste to JTG with a vicious chokeslam.
Wade Barrett def. Rey Mysterio (WATCH | PHOTOS) Preparing to represent The Corre at WWE Elimination Chamber, Wade Barrett set out to gain momentum over Rey Mysterio, another participant of the impending sadistic structure. Following a distraction from Justin Gabriel, Barrett did just that, defeating The Ultimate Underdog with Wasteland.
After the match – when The Corre looked ready to continue their assault on Mysterio – Big Show stomped to the aid of the masked Superstar. Though The World’s Largest Athlete wrecked havoc at first, the combined force of his ruthless adversaries left him reeling on the canvas. This included an earth-shattering suplex by Ezekiel Jackson.
Drew McIntyre def. Chris Masters (WATCH | PHOTOS) Before Drew McIntyre’s match with Chris Masters could begin, the “Chosen One” took to the microphone, setting the blame for Kelly Kelly getting fired solely on the shoulders of World Heavyweight Champion Edge. Dedicating his match to the ousted Diva, The Sinister Scotsman reigned supreme over Masters with the Future Shock DDT.
Justin Gabriel def. WWE Tag Team Champion Vladimir Kozlov (WATCH | PHOTOS) One week after The Corre’s Justin Gabriel & Heath Slater scored a non-title victory on WWE Tag Team Champions Vladimir Kozlov & Santino Marella, Gabriel defeated Kozlov with the 450 Splash. Afterward, Barrett hit Wasteland on Santino and Jackson hurled Kozlov to the canvas with absolute force.
Alberto Del Rio def. Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston in a Non-title match (WATCH | PHOTOS) The 2011 Royal Rumble winner Alberto Del Rio celebrated the coming of Valentine’s Day by proclaiming all the love in his heart for “destiny,” which he claimed loved him back. Seeking retribution for Del Rio’s attack one week ago, Kofi Kingston chose the present over future destiny, attacking his smiling foe with the kendo stick and destroying Del Rio’s trinkets of celebration.
As the result of that assault, the two Superstars squared-off. And one week after Del Rio cost Kofi a place at WWE Elimination Chamber, the aristocratic Superstar triumphed over Kingston with the cross armbreaker Will destiny be on the side of Del Rio in the main event of WrestleMania?

- Ric Flair has reportedly decided to postpone surgery on his torn rotator cuff to continue the ongoing storyline between Immortal and Fortune. As noted before, Flair is scheduled for this week's TNA iMPACT tapings.
Further Update on Ric Flair's TNA Status Posted by Steve Carrier on 02/12/2011 at 08:34 PM
Currently there remains no word on Ric Flair's status with TNA Wrestling.
TNA has the Against All Odds PPV this Sunday and two sets of tapings on Monday and Tuesday coming up this weekend. Flair was not at the last set of tapings following the European tour, a tour that Flair ended up suffering a torn rotator cuff on. Reports indicate that no decision was made on whether or not Flair will undergo surgery for the injury.
Natalya def. Alicia Fox The Great Khali def. The Usos Tyler Reks def. Curt Hawkins Jack Swagger def. Trent Barreta

Jack Swagger def. Trent Barreta (WATCH | PHOTOS) Trent Barreta can’t seem to get a win streak going. Suffering a series of losses in recent weeks on “WWE Superstars,” the talented youngster’s woes continued tonight as he found himself outmatched by the cocky Jack Swagger. A former World Heavyweight Champion, “The All-American American” had a distinct advantage over his opponent in experience, size and confidence. This was clear as Swagger threw Barreta around the ring before finishing him off with a wrenching ankle lock submission. Better luck next week, Trent.
Tyler Reks def. Curt Hawkins (WATCH | PHOTOS) Talk about adding insult to injury. On last Thursday’s “WWE Superstars,” the unpredictable Tyler Reks destroyed Curt Hawkins after the two men won a tag team match together. Embarrassed and angered by the attack, Hawkins was out for revenge tonight, but taking out “The Dreadlocked Demolition Man” is much easier said than done. Using his size and strength advantage, Reks was able to control the majority of the match and eventually put his opponent away with the Burning Hammer.
The Great Khali def. The Usos in a 2-on-1 Handicap Match (WATCH | PHOTOS) This unique showdown was billed as a Handicap Match, but The Usos looked like the ones at a disadvantage when faced with the massive Great Khali. After losing to The Punjabi Playboy in a dance-off on Raw two weeks ago, the young tag team was hoping to knock the big man down with a double-team attack. But the former World Heavyweight Champion’s size and power were simply too much from Jimmy and Jey to handle.
Natalya def. Alicia Fox (WATCH | PHOTOS) Natalya’s comeback began tonight. After a disappointing few weeks in which she was embarrassed by Team Lay-Cool and lost her coveted Divas Championship, the Hart Dungeon-trained beauty started her rebuilding process with an impressive victory over Alicia Fox. Always a cruel competitor, the vicious Fox was not easy for Natalya to handle. But the determined Diva would not be denied and finally locked in a Sharpshooter for a big win.
We open the show with comments from various members of the TNA roster from this past weekend's house shows down south, then we go to the Impact Zone as Eric Bischoff comes to the ring with the remaining members of Immortal. He says that if anyone thinks that Immortal is going to take a step back because of what happened with Fortune, it's not going to happen because he's Eric Bischoff and he's spent the last 15 years building stars and companies and changing the face of the industry as we know it today. He doesn't give a damn about Fortune, and the only reason they were even in Immortal was because of Ric Flair who, by the way, owes him a phone call. He runs each of the members of Fortune one by one, calling AJ Styles a midget hillbilly, James Storm one beer away from liver failure, Frankie Kazarian the Clay Aiken of wrestling, and Robert Roode another Canadian with no charisma. Eric hands the microphone to his friend, the founder of TNA and the reason we're all here tonight, Jeff Jarrett. Jarrett tells Fortune to come out right now (which they do), and Jarrett tells those BOYS to grow a set and come talk face to face with some real men. Fortune comes down to the ring and goes face to face with Immortal (crowd starts a big AJ Styles chant), and Jarrett apologizes to Eric Bischoff for what happened last week, because nine years ago he gave every member of Fortune an opportunity when they were flipping burgers and begging him for a job, and this is how they repay him. This isn't even talking about the disrespect they've shown the biggest box office attraction in the history of the business, Hulk Hogan, and all of them are nothing. He continues running them all down and then Roode grabs the mic out of his hand and says that this is enough, and if we want to take a trip down Memory Lane, Jarrett did give them all an opportunity, and they took that opportunity and built his company from the ground up. They are the heart and soul of TNA Wrestling and Jarrett knows it's the truth, but they'd still come in week after week and see "the new face of wrestling", their saviors, the washed up hasbeens who came and left, and the whole time Jarrett was overlooking them. They all had opportunities to leave and make more money elsewhere, but they stayed here because of the love and the belief they had in TNA Wrestling. They have all risen to the top and they'll continue to rise to the top no matter what they have to say about it, and if Jarrett doesn't like that, then he should grow a set and do something about it...Slapnuts.
That was enough for Immortal, who attack Fortune and beat them down until Kurt Angle, Scott Steiner, and Crimson come out to make the save. Immortal bails up the rampway as Angle and company stare them down from the ring.
We go backstage where Velvet Sky and Winter are going nose to nose and screaming at each other until Angelina Love gets between them and yells at them to stop it becuase she's had enough of the drama. She formally introduces BFF and Tag Team Partner to one another, and says that if they don't get along tonight, they're going to get killed out there.
We go back to Eric Bischoff's office as he's joined by Hernandez, and they always appreciated what he did and while Dixie Carter treated him like a rug, he took it upon himself to go down to Mexico and become a big star. Bischoff wants to treat him the way he deserves to be treated, and all Hernandez has to do is hurt some people. Hernandez seems into it and gives him the pound.
Okay, we're off to the ring for our first match...
Tables Match: Matt Hardy, Bully Ray & The Pope vs Brother Devon, Samoa Joe & Rob Van Dam
A brawl starts immediately before the match even starts and Joe again chases Pope to the back before the match even officially begins. Hardy and RVD go at it in the ring and RVD runs him over with a spinkick and then hits Rolling Thunder as Devon rams Bully Ray into the steps. Hardy slowly goes to the top rope and RVD recovers and kicks him off the top to the floor. Hardy gets a chair and nails RVD as he tries a dive over the ropes. Now the Dudleys get in the ring and Devon goes for a running charge, but Bully Ray gets an elbow up and then nails Devon in the stapler. Ray gets in his face and says he'll get his own stinkin' tables, and goes outside to pull a table from under the ring and sets it up on the floor. Ray goes back over to Devon's kids and says that he's going to go beat their father because he's weak, just like them. Ray hops up on the apron and Devon's kids hop the rail and grab his ankles, allowing Devon to drive him off the apron and through the table for the win.
Winners: Rob Van Dam, Brother Devon & Samoa Joe
Devon celebrates in the ring with his kids.
We go backstage to the Jarretts as Karen is telling her husband how great he looks, and Jeff says he can't wait for Angle to find out about the clause he put in the contract.
We head out to the ring with the Jarretts, who are surrounded by security, and Karen asks if we all enjoyed watching their family behind the scenes. Karen says that she did it for all of us because she can't imagine what it's like with our terrible marriages and dysfunctional marriages, and see what it's like to be a Jarrett and live the life they live where it's nothing but love 24/7. Kurt Angle's music hits and he comes walking out to sign the contract for their match as security forms a wall between him and the Jarretts. Karen says that this is a good chance to show the kids that mommy, daddy Kurt, and daddy Jeff can all get along and he should put on his happy face. Angle says to just give him the damn papers, and Jarrett says not so fast because their match at Genesis was supposed to be an exhibition and Angle took it too far, and that's why Jarrett had to destroy him. Jarrett says he has nothing to prove at Against All Odds, so he wants to up the ante: if Angle wins, then he gets custody of their two kids, but if Jarrett wins, then on March 3rd in Fayetteville, North Carolina when Karen renews her vows with Jeff, he wants Angle to give the bride away. Karen obviously doesn't like what's going on,but Jeff signs the contract and then hands it to Kurt, who signs it as well.
We go to commercial, and then come back for our next match...
Knockouts Champion Madison Rayne, Tara, Sarita, and Rosita vs Knockouts Tag Team Champions Angelina Love & Winter, Velvet Sky, and Mickie James
Cute bit as the Beautiful People and Winter made their entrance and Winter and Velvet kept trying to elbow each other out of the way so they could come to the ring with Angelina. Angelina and Sarita go at it in the ring and Sarita dumps Angelina to the apron, but Angelina nails her and comes off the top with a flying bodypress for 2. Rosita trips Angelina from the floor and then fires a hard forearm at her from the outside. Rosita tags in and cracks Angelina in the face with a a hard forearm, then Sarita picks her up on her shoulders and drops Rosita on Angelina for 2. Sarita tags in and wheelbarrow sentons Rosita onto Angelina and follows with a senton of her own for 2. Sarita and Rosita work Angelina over in the corner and then Rosita tries a crossbody, but Angelina catches her and hits a front powerslam then makes the hot tag to Velvet. Instead of wrestling the match, Velvet argues with Winter and allows Sarita to nail Velvet from behind and Rosita moonsaults Velvet for the win.
Winners: Madison Rayne, Tara, Sarita & Rosita
Velvet and Winter continue arguing all the way to the back, but Mickie James tells Madison that she's sick of Madison sneak attacking her and tells her to come back to the ring right now.
We go to commercial, and when we come back Madison asks Mickie if she's going to tell her about all the things she's going to do to her at Against All Odds, then says that Mickie came to TNA to prove she's the top female wrestler in the top female division in the world. Madison says she's gotten some impressive wins, but they haven't been against her and she can talk the talk, but when it comes to walking the walk, she's crippled. There comes a time when every wrestler has to make the decision about whether it's time to hang up the boots, and while Madison is young and hasn't even hit her prime yet, but Mickie's at that point and she has a decision to make about whether she's going to let Madison keep embarrassing her.
We go backstage to Jeff Jarrett who ponders on tonight's Morgan-Anderson match with the winner facing him at Against All Odds in a Ladder Match, and the only thing that matters is when he climbs the ladder and regains his title.
Ken Anderson and Matt Morgan are backstage, and they're...WALKING!
We go to the back as Kurt Angle walks into Fortune's locker room and tells AJ Styles & Robert Roode to destroy Jeff Jarrett tonight because of what he said about Kurt's kids. Roode says what the Jarretts are doing by putting the kids in the middle of it is BS, and Kurt did Fortune a favor, so Roode will do him a favor tonight and give Angle his spot in the match tonight.
Back to the ring...
WWE Divas Title Match: Ken Anderson vs Matt Morgan
Jeff Hardy comes out before the match with a ladder, sets it up at ringside, and climbs to the top for a bird's eye view of the match. You might as well do the screwjob finish right now for all the difference it will make. Anderson gets a headlock and Morgan sends him off into the ropes, but an Anderson shoulderblock goes nowhere. Now Morgan gets a headlock, Anderson sends him into the ropes, and Morgan runs over him with a shoulderblock. Anderson tries a hiptoss, Morgan reverses to one of his own, but misses a legdrop and Anderson gets a sliding clothesline for 2. They trade blows and Morgan whips Anderson to the corner and follows in with a clothesline, then hits a side suplex for 2. Morgan hits a series of short clotheslines, but Anderson ducks the last one and rolls Morgan up for 2. Morgan pops right back up and gets a clothesline for 2 and then goes to a chinlock as we get a good view of Hardy watching the action from the ladder. Anderson fights his way out of the chinlock and they trade blows again, but Anderson gets a flying clothesline, back elbow, and swinging neckbreaker for 2. Morgan blocks the Mic Check and Anderson dodges the Carbon Footprint and hits a clothesline from the second rope for 2. Morgan goes for another Carbon Footprint but crotches himself on the top rope and tumbles to the floor. Anderson tries to pull him back in and Morgan snaps his neck across the top rope and Anderson falls backwards into the ref and wipes him out. Suddenly, Hernandez runs out and attacks Morgan on the floor, rams him into the ringpost, then rolls him back into the ring so Anderson can cover him for 3.
Winner: Ken Anderson
Hardy sits applauding from his spot at the top of the ladder, and then Hernandez runs in and nails Anderson from behind, then plants him in the mat with a big spinebuster. Hardy comes down from the ladder and hits a Swanton on Anderson, then picks up the Divas Title belt and holds it high.
We go backstage to Bully Ray, who tells Devon that his kids are a couple of bastards who stuck their nose into his business. He says Devon has always been weak and he's raised two weak sons who grabbed his legs so Devon could blindside him. He tells Devon to bring his kids to Against All Odds so he can turn his bastard boys into men.
Back to the ring...
X Division #1 Contender's Match: Brian Kendrick vs Robbie E vs Suicide
Robbie attacks Suicide as he makes his big entrance on the zip line, but Suicide fires back and works Robbie over in the corner with clotheslines. Robbie backdrops Suicide to the floor and Kendrick suddenly goes after Robbie, still wearing his robe, and then they both nail Suicide as he gets back in the ring, but Suicide comes back and picks Kendrick up and legdrops him onto Robbie before giving Kendrick a bulldog to the second turnbuckle and clotheslining Robbie to the floor. Kendrick fires back with a series of kicks but Suicide hits a Yakuza Kick and a 450 back suplex. Cookie gets up on the apron and distracts Suicide so Robbie can run in and nail him from behind and then cover Kendrick for the win.
Winner: Robbie E
So the #1 Contender's Match at Against All Odds will now be Robbie E and Generation Me fighting for a shot at the X Division Title.
AJ Styles, Kurt Angle, Jeff Jarrett, and Jeff Hardy are backstage, and they're all...WALKING!
We go to an interview with Ink Inc, who say they represent people who aren't afraid to come out and be themselves, and it doesn't matter what you're into because it's all about coming out and representing themselves. They proved to Gunner & Murphy last week what they're all about when they picked up the win.
Mike Tenay and Taz run down the card for Against All Odds, and then we go backstage to the Devon family. Devon says he's glad Bubba is pissed off because he had no business putting his hands on Devon's kids, and he was the one who brought them into the situation. They may be young, but don't underestimate them because they're all going to give him the ass kicking of his life.
It's main event time!
Jeff Hardy & Jeff Jarrett vs AJ Styles & Kurt Angle
Jarrett and AJ start the match and AJ immediately tags Angle in, so Jarrett runs and tags out to Hardy. Angle takes Hardy down with a headlock but Hardy regains his feet and takes Angle to the corner, then stomps him down to the mat. Angle responds with an overhead belly to belly suplex for 2 as Jarrett stands in the corner with his arm outstretched, so Angle tosses Hardy into his corner and Jarrett suddenly drops to the floor. Angle tags AJ and they hit a double backdrop on Hardy for 2, but then Hardy drives AJ into the corner and now Jarrett tags in and he beats AJ down. AJ catches him unawares with a hiptoss and tags Angle, but Jarrett runs and tags out as he dives to the floor again. Angle comes off the ropes and Jarrett grabs his ankle, allowing Hardy to hit a clothesline for 2. Hardy goes to a chinlock, Angle fights his way out but Hardy nails him with a back elbow and a legdrop, then tags Jarrett in. Jarrett unloads with some hard rights and chokes Angle on the second rope as Karen screams in his face. Angle catches the ankle out of nowhere and goes for the anklelock, but Hardy comes in to break it up and then tags in to inflict some punishment on Angle. Hardy with a vertical suplex for 2 and then goes back to the chinlock as we take a commercial break.
We're back and Angle is trying to fight his way free, but Hardy nails him with a clothesline and goes for the Swanton, but Angle runs up the turnbuckles and suplexes Hardy into the ring. Angle makes the hot tag and AJ comes in and cleans house, hitting a hard back suplex on Jarrett for 2, Jarrett escapes the Styles Clash but AJ hits the Pelle Kick for 2. Hardy comes in and gives AJ a gourdbuster, but Angle hits a 450 German Suplex on Hardy and then stalks Jarrett as he gets up and goes for the Angle Slam, but Jarrett slips out and runs from Angle. He runs into the ring and kicks at Angle to keep him from getting in the ring, and AJ hits a springboard crossbody on Jarrett to pick up the win.
Winners: AJ Styles & Kurt Angle
Jeff Jarrett comes in with lowblows on both Angle and AJ and gives them both the Stroke, then Hardy comes in and gives AJ the Twist Of Hate. They continue beating them down until Fortune, Crimson, and Scott Steiner run in to make the save. The rest of Immortal runs in to even the odds and Fortune and company again get beat down. Rob Van Dam runs out and Jeff Hardy and Jarrett bail, and RVD cleans house on the rest of them until Matt Hardy clips RVD's knee from behind. Now Ken Anderson runs out to make the save and clears out Immortal by himself, and then stares angrily at them as they hightail it up the ramp.
Is Edge Still Champion? Posted by Steve Carrier on 02/12/2011 at 12:55 PM
The WWE website is questioning whether Edge is still the World Heavyweight Champion following last night's episode of SmackDown.
The "Rated R Superstar" retained the belt over Dolph Ziggler after Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews replaced Vickie Guerrero as the bout's Special Guest Referee and made the three-count.
WWE.com published an interview with Matthews teasing controversy.
"And although Matthews wouldn't divulge who gave him the authority to be a WWE Official, the WWE Universe is left to wonder if Edge is still the World Heavyweight Champion and if Matthews’ power as a WWE Official ultimately supersedes that of an angry "acting" SmackDown General Manager in Vickie Guerrero."

Del Rio vs. Santino & Sheamus-Henry Loses Viewers Posted by Steve Carrier on 02/10/2011 at 06:17 AM
- As noted before, the February 7th WWE RAW did a 3.30 rating with 4.93 million viewers.
In a segment-by-segment breakdown, Vince McMahon's announcement and the angle with Randy Orton & Nexus opened with a 3.55 rating. R-Truth vs. Mason Ryan lost 618,000 viewers while Eve Torres, Gail Kim and Tamina vs. Melina & The Bella Twins gained 280,000 viewers. Michael McGillicutty vs. John Morrison lost 349,000 viewers while the angle with The Miz and Jerry Lawler with the beginning of the Lawler & Daniel Bryan vs. Miz & Ted DiBiase match gained 723,000 viewers for the 10pm time.
However, the ending of the tag match and the angle with Sheamus and Mark Henry lost 383,000 viewers. In another big loss, the Santino Marella vs. Alberto Del Rio match lost 305,000 viewers and was the lowest rated segment of the show.
The main event of CM Punk vs. John Cena and the brawl at the end gained 504,000 viewers, a little less than the usual overrun, ending RAW with a 3.45 rating for the overrun.
- The Undertaker's returning is drawing closer as he has stepped up rehab on the shoulder that was originally operated on. He is currently on schedule to compete at WrestleMania and has been spending a lot of time in Birmingham working out there. Unless there were any setbacks, there is a feeling that Undertaker could work a solid singles match right now.
Latest On Triple H's Return Posted by Amish Patel on 02/09/2011 at 06:55 PM
- Triple H is scheduled to return within a few weeks and is slated to appear at WrestleMania 27. The reason he hasn't been brought back quicker is because he is not involved in the Elimination Chamber angle and obviously wouldn't win, so WWE want his return to have a big impact. In terms of his role right now, he is continuing to learn all aspects of the business and has received praise at the dedication he is showing in trying to learn.
What Happened After Raw, CM Punk Breaks Nose, More Posted by Steve Carrier on 02/08/2011 at 02:29 AM
- John Cena and Randy Orton defeated CM Punk and The Miz in a tag team contest following Monday's Raw broadcast.
- CM Punk broke his nose during the opening segment of Raw.
- Goldust (a/k/a Dustin Rhodes) was backstage at Raw.
- Former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Nunzio refereed a dark match between Zack Ryder and Percy Watson.
- Before David Otunga could hit the ring to face King Sheamus, Mark Henry's music hit as "The World's Strongest Man" stormed the ring. Otunga's scheduled bout with Otunga was ruled a No Contest. Otunga was not injured as creative plans called for him to not actually wrestle.
- A number of people backstage were cracking up at R-Truth saying the wrong city by his mistake prior to his match with Mason Ryan.
- John Cena and CM Punk had a "battle rap" during one of the show's commercial breaks.
Desmond Wolfe has a medical condition—that has yet to be publicly disclosed—which caused company officials to drop his partnership with Magnus and Chelsea. Magnus reunited with Wolfe at television tapings in December, but a decision was made to not air the vignettes they filmed.
Update on Sting's Status and WWE/TNA Talk Posted by Steve Carrier on 02/06/2011 at 10:10 AM
- While it was reported yesterday that Sting and WWE have had no talks at all, one source reports that WWE wanted Sting to work a full schedule, something that he would most likely not be interested in.
Another source reports that Sting may have actually already re-signed with TNA but that's not confirmed. The feeling in the TNA locker room last week was that Sting was headed to WWE but recent reports suggest otherwise.
R-Truth def. Mason Ryan by Disqualification Divas Champion Eve, Gail Kim & Tamina def. The Bella Twins & Tamina John Morrison def. Michael McGillicutty Jerry "The King" Lawler & U.S. Champion Daniel Bryan def. WWE Champion The Miz & Ted DiBiase King Sheamus vs. David Otunga ended in a No Contest Alberto Del Rio def. Santino Marella CM Punk def. John Cena by Disqualification
MILWAUKEE – One night after the Green Bay Packers posted an amazing victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV, Raw rolled into Wisconsin to keep the party going.
CM Punk def. John Cena by Disqualification (WATCH | PHOTOS) CM Punk and John Cena will square off inside the Elimination Chamber in two weeks. The combatants got a head start tonight, though, when they clashed in a singles match. Before he would allow himself to fall victim to Punk’s minions, 2010’s WWE Superstar of the Year caught his opponent with a low blow. The shot got Cena disqualified and left Punk reeling.
The remainder of The New Nexus charged down the entrance ramp. As Mason Ryan attended to his boss, Michael McGillicutty and David Otunga took aim at Cena. Before they could avenge Punk, however, Jerry “The King” Lawler handed Cena a steel chair, which he used to clobber the two Nexi and send a clear message to The Second City Savior: John Cena isn’t about to go without a fight.
Alberto Del Rio def. Santino Marella (WATCH | PHOTOS) Alberto Del Rio outlasted 39 other Superstars to prevail in the Royal Rumble Match. The man he sent over the top rope to win, WWE Tag Team Champion Santino Marella, wanted a second chance. Unfortunately for the Italian, the outcome was similar. Marella ended up tapping out to the Mexican elitist.
King Sheamus vs. David Otunga ended in a No Contest (WATCH | PHOTOS) CM Punk continues to prove himself a shrewd operator. Prior to a match pitting David Otunga against King Sheamus, the head of The New Nexus presumably orchestrated a scuffle between the Irishman and Mark Henry by planting false accusations between the two. In addition to shielding his disciple from potential harm, the move also sparked a blow-up between The World’s Strongest Man and The Celtic Warrior, who was reeling from the effects of The World’s Strongest Slam.
Jerry "The King" Lawler & U.S. Champion Daniel Bryan def. WWE Champion The Miz & Ted DiBiase (WATCH | PHOTOS) If WWE Champion The Miz thinks he can coast in his title match against Jerry “The King” Lawler at WWE Elimination Chamber, he’d better think again. The WWE Hall of Famer teamed with U.S. Champion Daniel Bryan against Miz & Ted DiBiase. Lawler showed that he remains a force inside the ring when he used his experience to level The “Fortunate Son” for the three-count.
John Morrison def. Michael McGillicutty (WATCH | PHOTOS) In their effort to weaken each of CM Punk’s Elimination Chamber opponents, The New Nexus scored yet again. This time, it was Michael McGillicutty who tackled the challenge of John Morrison. Although The Shaman of Sexy prevailed, he was ambushed after the bout when The Second City Savior struck him from behind, sprayed a chemical substance in his eyes and kicked him in the head.
Divas Champion Eve, Gail Kim & Tamina def. The Bella Twins & Melina (WATCH | PHOTOS) The bad blood flowed thick when Divas Champion Eve teamed up with Gail Kim & Tamina to compete against The Bella Twins & Melina. With loads of animosity looming large, it was the recently crowned Divas Champion who secured the win for her team by pinning Melina. Eve's troubles aren't over just yet, though. Next week, the Divas Champion must defend her title against former champion Natalya.
R-Truth def. Mason Ryan by Disqualification (WATCH | PHOTOS) In the first match of the evening, Nexus strongman Mason Ryan faced off with R-Truth. Ryan showed he possesses both size and sadism. The Welshman refused to release his submission hold, punishing Truth’s legs. His insistence cost Ryan the bout due to disqualification.
The New Nexus attacked Randy Orton (WATCH) After Randy Orton punted their colleague, Husky Harris, in the skull last week, The New Nexus was hungry for retribution. As a result, the group surrounded The Viper and beat him down mercilessly. The group's leader, CM Punk, then explained why he had cost Orton the WWE Championship at Royal Rumble: He hadn't forgotten that WWE's Apex Predator cost him his World Heavyweight Championship in 2008. However, that was hardly the end of their night.
The anonymous Raw General Manager eschewed the group’s “gang mentality” and announced that members of The New Nexus would compete in individual matches against participants in the upcoming Raw Elimination Chamber Match. The bouts would culminate in a contest between New Nexus leader CM Punk and John Cena.
Mr. McMahon announced that the WrestleMania host will be revealed next week (WATCH | PHOTOS) After months, Mr. McMahon finally made his eagerly-anticipated return to Raw – and it was worth the wait. The Chairman opened the program to inform the WWE Universe that next week, the host of this year’s WrestleMania will be revealed!
