1. R-Truth beat Leo Kruger. I'd never seen Kruger before. He wore blue trunks, had long black hair, and had an accent) Before the match he came out and made fun of R-Truth for having an imaginary friend. R-Truth attacked him quickly, but Kruger came back and dominated the match before R-Truth hit his finisher for the win.
2. Ryback beat Alex Riley. Every time Alex tried to attack Ryback (a/k/a Skip Sheffield), he just pushed Riley away. There where moments in the match were Riley seemed to be making a comeback, but Ryback stopped him with his power. Ryback won with a variation of a suplex.
3. Eve Torres beat Kelly Kelly. Before the match, Eve came out and cut a promo. She asked why people called her a Hoeski? Because she is beautiful? Or was it because every man there wanted to be with her or their wives wanted to be beautiful like her? She said that's she was gonna prove that she was beautiful and dangerous by betting her WrestleMania opponent Kelly Kelly. Eve did the promo in Spanish. Kelly's music played and she came out to a huge pop. When she got in the ring, Eve started talking to her before Kelly slapped her. She continued to attack Eve. In the middle of the match, Kelly did her huracanrana and flipped Eve. Eve went to the corner and Kelly came and rubbed her but in Eve's face. Kelly went to attack Eve in the corner, but Eve pushed Kelly, rolled her up, and used the ropes to get the win.
4. Primo and Epico (w/Rosa) beat Alberto Del Rio and Ricardo Rodgriguez, and Zack Ryder and Mason Ryan in a Triple Threat match to retain the WWE Tag Titles. Del Rio did a promo and he said that it was nice to be in a Latin crowd, but that he was the only Latino there. He said he was going to call the Puerto Rican men (PUTAS), which means bitch, but Ricardo cut him short. Primo and Epico came out with Rosa. They asked Alberto if he was done talking so much trash. The match started slow because Del Rio and Rodriguez were running around the Ring. Ryder and Primo started the match with some grappling and Del Rio eventually came in and got back out again. Ryder tagged Ryan, but he was eliminated when Primo hit the Backstabber shortly thereafter. Primo tagged Epico, and Del Rio and Rodriguez dominated the match by keeping Epico in their corner. Finally, Epico managed to kick Del Rio out of the ring and tagged Primo. Del Rio tagged Rodriguez, and primo started to dominate the match with chops and kicks.

Rodriguez tapped out.

The match started slow but started picking up Swagger was dominating hitting and going through his move set. Swagger hit Santino with his corner splash for the near fall. Santino came back and made his comeback he was setting up for The Cobra, but Swagger countered and caught him in the ankle lock Santino stayed there for some time but rolled over sending Swagger to the corner and hitting The Cobra to retain his title.
6. Chris Jericho beat Kofi Kingston. The lights went off and Jericho came walking to the ring with his jacket and the music.The crowd and I weren't expecting it so it was really exciting. The match started with some grappling Kofi was dominating but Jericho came back, not letting Kofi get the best of him. Kofi didn't give up and started to get fired up. He hit Jericho with his chops and was setting up for his jumping senton but Jericho cut him off. Jericho got up and Kingston went for the Trouble in Paradise.
Jericho reversed it into the Walls of Jericho. Kofi almost gave up, but he managed to get out somehow. When Jericho got up, Kofi hit the Trouble in Paradise, but jericho landed near the ropes and touched the ropes to stop the count on the pin attempt. Jericho crawled to the ropes and when Kingston got near him, he poked Kingston's eye and hit the Codebreaker for the win.

9. C.M. Punk beat Dolph Ziggler in a best of three falls match to retain the WWE Championship. The match started really fast paced and then really slowed down. Ziggler got the first fall when he took out the turnbuckle pad and slammed Punk against it. Every time Punk seemed to be making a comeback he was stopped by Ziggler. Ziggler went for a Superplex of the ropes but Punk threw him off the ropes and hit his elbow drop to win the second fall. As Punk started to dominate, Chris Jericho came out and hit the Codebreaker. Ziggler covered Punk, but he kicked out. Jericho looked shocked as Punk got Ziggler and hit the GTS for the win.
