Lilian Garcia introduced Michael Cole and Booker T. Cole got major heat.
Big show she came to cheers to start. He cut a promo apologizing to A.J. People started chanting "it's ok." His promo was about how as a kid, he hurt others because he was so big, and how he thought that was all behind him. He said that after what happened with A.J., he doesn't feel like he has the heart to go on with his career.
Daniel Bryan came out to disrupt him. The crowd chanted "it's your fault." Bryan got on Big Show for putting A.J. in the hospital. Bryan slapped Show and told him to leave. Show raged. He pushed Bryan in the corner and got in his face.
Mark Henry came out to remind Show and Bryan that they have a Triple Threat cage match. He said he doesn't care about their problems. Teddy Long came out said that there is already a main event for the night, and it's Randy Orton vs. Wade Barrett.The other match he made for the night was Big Show vs. Mark Henry.
They cut to a video that showed how Orton was injured and hyped his return.
1. Cody Rhodes defeated Justin Gabriel in a non-title match. Rhodes won with CrossRhodes. Surprisingly, Cody got some cheers.
Teddy Long and Santino talked backstage. Santino wanted to team with Yoshi Tatsu to form Santoshi. Drew McIntyre entered and Teddy told him he's on his last straw. Long told McIntyre he has to face Sheamus.
During break Lillian gets a lot of hoots and hollers.
2. Sheamus defeated Drew McIntyre. McIntyre came out to cheers. I didn't expect that. Sheamus entered to a huge pop! McIntyre looked aggressive and he was Sheamus most of the match. Sheamus won via Brogue Kick. Poor McIntyre. He can't catch a break.
3. Epico and Primo defeated Santino Marella and Yoshi Tatsu. Epico and Primo won via Primo's finisher.
Backstage, Daniel Bryan told Mark Henry that he respects him. He said everyone knows Henry can pin Big Show, and said he needs to go out there, hurt him, and teach him a lesson.
Wade Barrett came out cut promo. He spoke of Orton being back but said he is returning as a broken man. Orton came out to a huge pop!
4. Randy Orton fought Wade Barrett to a no-contest. Orton got on Barrett quickly and beat him down. Referees came out to break up the fight, but they couldn't break it up.

5. Hunico (w/Camacho) defeated Ted DiBiase. Hunico won using his finisher and was cheered. Afterward, Hunico and Camacho beat on DiBiase and worked over his injured wrist.
6. Brodus Clay defeated Alex Riley. Very entertaining. Clay seems to be really getting over. He won after A-Ry tried for a dance-off.
7. Aksana defeated Natalya. Aksana won in like two seconds with a quick roll up. Nattie beat up Aksana and put her in a Sharpshooter. Tamina came out and performed a Samoan Drop and a Superfly splash on Natalya.
8. Big Show defeated Mark Henry via countout. Daniel Bryan was at ringside. Show and Henry clashed. Henry couldn't take it and got himself intentionally counted out.

Show escaped and chokeslammed Bryan, who got up and took the WMD.
