Non-Televised Match (SMDN/ECW)
Jesse & Festus def. John Morrison
& Mike "The Miz" Mizanin
via Pinfall

Match #1 - WWE United States Championship (SMDN)
Rey Mysterio
def. Montel Vontavious Porter
via Countout (11:28)
Notes: MVP was knocked outside the ring, but the referee prevented Rey Rey from going over the ropes onto MVP. So Rey Rey ended up jumping over the official to the outside. MVP's cockiness almost got the better of him on this night. But what helped was Rey Rey hurting himself. Rey came off the ropes awkwardly in a springboard and injured his knee. Rey did manage to land a hurricarana on MVP, who was sitting on the top rope in the corner. Rey couldn't put Montel away, and Montel even managed to dodge the 619 by rolling out of the ring. Rey attacked him outside the ring, and MVP declined to reenter the ring. And, being the sore loser that he is, Rey jumped MVP after the match.

Match #2 (SMDN/ECW)
Big Daddy V
& Mark Henry

w/Matt Striker
def. Kane &
CM Punk
via Pinfall (10:40)
Notes: Kane had a pretty sweet-looking entrance with the set. This wasn't all that bad. Seriously. The two big men worked over CM Punk for a bit, and then worked over Kane. They worked pretty effectively as a team, keeping whomever was in the ring isolated from their partner. Kane and Punk started cleaning house when Kane finally made the tag, but when CM Punk came off the tope rope, Big Daddy V caught him and laid him out with a Samoan Drop. V then pinned Punk for the win.

Match #3 (RAW)
Shawn Michaels def. Ken Kennedy via Pinfall (15:15)
Notes: Kennedy went after Michaels right off the bat, going to work on the lower back of HBK. Michaels then went to work on Kennedy's arm/elbow. They brawled outside the ring a bit, and HBK stomped on Kennedy's hand, which was lying on the ring steps at the time. The hand now became HBK's target. Kennedy wasn't going down without a fight, and he delivered a nasty knee to HBK's face while he was down in the corner. After some more grappling, the near-falls happened fast and furious. Both fought hard, but when Kennedy punched HBK with his injured hand, the pain distracted him for just a moment, and HBK was able to lay him out with Sweet Chin Music.

Match #4 (RAW)
Jeff Hardy def. Triple H via Pinfall (15:21)
Notes: So Jeff Hardy won the title shot at Royal Rumble. I suppose that is a nice change of pace. Triple H knocked Hardy around for the first few minutes, causing HHH to yell at Jeff to "fight me!" It seemed as though Trips was just toying with him. Basically HHH would beat on Jeff, Jeff would counter and get in a few moves, then HHH would take over again. Hardy reversed the Pedigree a couple of times, the second of which he turned into a pinfall. HHH looked shocked for a moment, and then just smiled, which I don't like. To me it make it seem like he doesn't care. So in a few months he'll turn heel and talk about how the fans made him go soft and take his eyes off the prize, the championship. Match wasn't that great, I thought.

Match #5 (SMDN)
def. The Great Khali
w/Ranjin Singh
via Pinfall (6:04)
Notes: Finlay's a genius. Khali started taking a turnbuckle pad off, and when the ref got in his face, Finlay went for the shillelah. Ranjin tried to stop him, but got a boot for his trouble. The ref was back at the turnbuckle when Finlay tried to use the shillelah, but he was caught with a hand to the throat. The ref took the first shillelah out of the ring, but as he did so, Hornswoggle came in with another one, hit Khali below the belt with it, and handed it off to Finlay. The now free Finlay nailed Khali in the head with it, and made the pin. Luck of the Irish!

Match #6 - WWE World Heavyweight Championship (RAW)
Chris Jericho
def. Randy Orton
via DQ (15:03)
Notes: Match started off a bit slow, but it picked up eventually. Especially when Jericho countered the RKO and then landed the Lionsault. But that was good only for 2. The two brawled outside the ring, with Y2J charging Orton. However, Orton sidestepped Jericho and he slid over the SmackDown announce table and into JBL. Jericho got up, shoved JBL out of th way, and continued the fight. Later, Orton had Jericho set up for his trademark kick to the head. Y2J was playing a bit of possum, because the rolled Orton over and then was able to get him into the Walls of Jericho. Orton was pretty much toast when JBL entered the ring and kicked Jericho in the head, causing the DQ.

Match #7 - WWE Women's Championship (RAW)
Beth Phoenix
def. Mickie James
via Pinfall (4:47)
Notes: Jillian Hall came out before this match and plugged her album on iTunes. That can't be legit. Why would they waste the time and effort. Anyway, she just left. Beth used a lot of power moves on Mickie, which Mickie was able to survive. Mickie was able to muster more offense than anyone else against Beth, but the power eventually proved to be too much.

Match #8 - World Heavyweight Championship (SMDN)
def. Dave Batista
The Undertaker
via Pinfall (13:00)
Notes: -TITLE CHANGE- Undertaker and Batista fought with each other in the beginning, while Edge just stayed out of the way. Edge finally got involved later on, and then the action was all over the place. When Undertaker locked Batista into the triangle choke, Edge went outside the ring and rang the bell. 'Taker thought it was over, and released the hold before Batista had a chance to tap out. A bit later, Undertaker and Batista were again dueling in the ring, when a guy that looked like Edge ran in. He was speared and tossed out. At this point, you could see him and Edge outside the ring. Another one came in, and he was chokeslammed. Undertaker eventually gave Batista the Tombstone, but the real Edge hit him with a chair and then pinned Batista. After that, Edge grabbed the title and ran off, and was joined in the aisle by the two flunkies, who looked like the Major Brothers.
