Main event: R-Truth & Christian vs. Randy Orton and John Morrison - Starts off with John Morrison chasing R-Truth out of the ring, the crowd got a chuckle out of that. Officially starts with Christian and Morrisson. Good back and forth throughout. Morrisson is in there for a long time and the crowd chants Randy! Randy! Randy! at least three times. At one point, Orton comes after Christian and Christian jumps the guard rail into the crowd running away, but a few minutes later he goes back after Orton gets to his corner. Finally the hot tag is made with Christian and Orton where Orton hits some of his big moves and looks like he's getting ready to punt Christian until R-Truth makes the save. Truth gets hit by Morrison, Morrison is shoved out by Christian and Randy Orton does his middle rope DDT and prepares himself for the RKO until R-Truth comes in, and he gets RKO'd. This gives Christian the time to use the Killswitch and get the 1-2-3 clean. He runs out, grabs his belt and celebrates and starts to go up the ramp.
