OPENING SEGMENT: Daniel Bryan and A.J. Lee came out to start the show to solid heat. Bryan made A.J. tell everyone how much she loves him and the boos got even louder. A.J. added that Daniel Bryan is going to make Sheamus tap out at WrestleMania 28. Shemaus interrupted and called Bryan a coward while saying his speech made him throw up in his mouth. Sheamus talked trash and said he will kick Bryan’s teeth down his throat and added that Bryan will soon be called a former World Heavyweight Champion.
Match 1. Mark Henry defeated R-Truth. Henry won with the World’s Strongest Slam.
A graphic was shown for Big Show vs. Kane for later in the show.
WWE Hall of Fame Update: A video package revealed that Yokozuna is the newest 2012 WWE Hall of Fame inductee.
WrestleMania Match Update: Zack Ryder and The Great Khali were added to Teddy Long’s team at WrestleMania 28.
Match 2. A.J. (w/Daniel Bryan) beat Brie Bella. A.J. received a strong pop because she’s from Union City, N.J., just ten minutes away from Newark. She got the win with a distraction by Bryan followed by a roll up for the pin. Bryan entered the ring and celebrated more than A.J. again like he did last time.
Match 3. Zack Ryder (w/Hornswoggle) beat Jack Swagger (w/Vickie Guerrero). Ryder hit the Rough Ryder for the victory after Vickie and Hornswoggle argued on the apron.
Match 4. Big Show defeated Kane by DQ when Cody Rhodes interfered and hit Big Show for the DQ. Show chased him into the crowd, then Randy Orton snuck inside the ring and hit the RKO on Kane for a big pop.
Match 5. Brodus Clay beat Health Slater. Squash match #436 for the Funkasaurus.
Match 6. The Great Khali defeated Dolph Ziggler via countout in a restarted match. Christian joined the announcers on commentary. John Laurinaitus tried to screw Khali and rang the bell on a submission hold even though Khali didn’t tap out. Teddy Long then restarted the match and counted out Ziggler, declaring Khali the winner. Kofi Kingston and Santino Marella pushed Ziggler back in and Khali chopped him for good measure.
Match 7. C.M. Punk and Sheamus beat Daniel Bryan and The Miz. Punk entered to the pop of the night and Sheamus got another big pop. Sheamus hit the Brogue Kick on The Miz (who took most of the punishment again) and got the win for his team. The show ends here.
Dark Match: John Cena beat Kane in a cage match. There were “Cena sucks” and “Let’s go Cena” chants the whole match. Cena won with the Attitude Adjustment to send the crowd home happy, as they say in the trade.
