Rey Mysterio and John Morrison started out in the ring and both made fairly long runs, but the eliminations didnt start flowing until Vladimir Kozlov and Triple H entered the fray.
Swagger works the arm, but Hardy responds with another bulldog. Match Rating: 7/10 A random assortment of wrestlers and crew members watch silently as Orton enters the arena. I make a lot of comments about the overall state of womens (oops, Divas) wrestling in the WWE, but this match is about as good as possible with the current roster.
Hardy hits a moonsault from the top rope, but only gets a two count. Santino Marella accompanies his woman while sporting a new shirt that plays off the Ferrari symbol. Also nice is Phoenix putting Melina in kind of a reverse half-crab, then kicking her in the head with her own foot. Melina at 5 minutes and 56 seconds Match Rating: 6.5/10 A video package takes us back through the highlights of the ongoing JBL-Shawn Michaels-John Cena drama.
It wasnt the outcome but the way it went down that was the surprise, as Matt Hardy looked like he was offering his brother a hand before turning and delivering the chair shot that sealed the match.
The next WWE pay-per-view is No Way Out on February 17th.
Shawn Michaels attempted to aid his boss JBL in his World Heavyweight Title match with John Cena, but he did it his own way, superkicking both men and dragging JBL on top of the champ.
It didnt pay off for the scheming JBL though, as the ref was already out, and the delay in getting a new ref to the ring allowed Cena to kick out.
If you've been with us for the past few years, you know the drill by now.
Nicks comments will be in plain type with Dales remarks in italics.
Ortons Legacy group combined forces to eliminate Kane around the 53-minute mark, leaving three competitors from Raw and three from Smackdown.
Undertaker eliminated Big Show and was subsequently repaid in kind, leaving Triple H at the mercy of Orton, Cody Rhodes and Ted Di Biase.
He hoisted the challenger up for his finisher and escaped his belt.
