If anyone wasn’t sure before, Christian made it clear that he’s now out for just himself.
Christian suggested that some people might have understood why he attacked Randy Orton last week, but believes that almost all of them don’t get it. Because of that, he declared himself “through” with his “peeps.”
“I’m not sure I want to talk to any of you ever again, but there is one person I will talk to tonight.”
With that, he invited announcer Michael Cole into the ring and, after complaining about Teddy Long, the fans and Orton, asked Cole to ask the fans if he deserved to be champion. When the audience didn’t give him the response he wanted, he declared he would be champion again and would do it for himself.
Orton would come out later and demand that Christian confront him face to face, but Christian, via video, only demanded one more world title match at Capital Punishment, which Orton finally accepted.
Orton’s night wasn’t done, as he had to face Sheamus in a No Disqualification match.
Brawling in and out the ring, Oron and Sheamus threw themselves against anything they could find, including the ring steps and a Singapore cane. But Christian returned and tried to get Orton with the Kill Switch; Orton avoided that and the Brogue Kick before hitting the RKO, but Christian hit Orton with the World Title belt to allow Sheamus to get the win.
It appears Wade Barrett no longer has th support of Heath Slater and Justin Gabriel, as he abandoned them again in their tag team match against Ezekiel Jackson and the Uso twins.
Slater found himself against the ropes early, first from the power of Jackson and then from the quick blocks and kicks of Jimmy Uso. Slater and Gabriel eventually ganged up on Jay Uso when Slater pulled down the rope to trip Jay out of the ring, Gabriel kicked him away and Slater slammed him against the announce table. Barrett was more than willing to beat down the Usos, but he cleared out of the ring once Jackson got back in and then left, despite Slater’s protests. With that, and once the Usos cleared away Slater, Jackson made Gabriel submit to the Torture Rack.
Afterward, Slater and Gabriel declared that The Corre was finished. So it now appears that Barrett is alone as he must defend the Intercontinental Championship against Jackson at Capital Punishment.
Cody Rhodes’ interference in Ted DiBiase’s match against Sin Cara forced him into another match, which cost them both.
DiBiase was clearly confused by Cara’s flips and springboards and never really got anything together. So when Cara went for one more springboard off the ropes, Rhodes pulled him off the apron to break up the match, and then they both attacked him until Daniel Bryan came to Cara’s aid. Theodore Long then came out and made a tag team match.
Rhodes and DiBiase both looked to wear down Cara after Rhodes threw Cara into the ring post, but Cara fnally fought back with an Enziguri and tagged in Bryan. Bryan climbed to the top corner and kicked Rhodes away, followed by Cara lunging at Rhodes. DiBiase caught in midair, but Cara countered into the Labell lock.and got DiBiase to tap out.
Jindar Majal again proved impressive while having The Great Khali in his corner as he took on Trent Barretta
Barretta didn’t back down from Majal, hitting an enziguri and back-slamming him into the corner, but when he climbed to the top corner, Khali climbed the ring steps and stared him down; that allowed Majal to pull Barretta off the ropes and finish him off with his full nelson-side slam combo. Then, just like last week, he had Khali squeeze Barretta’s head with the vice grip.
After two disappointing tag matches, AJ picked up her first win as she faced Tamina.
AJ fought off Tamina’s power moves with her own kicks only to have Tamina retaliate with a head butt and her own ground-and-pound game ‘” until AJ rolled away from a press slam and delivered a running kick. Tamina did catch AJ off the top rope, but her taunting Natalya cost her, as AJ countered it into a rollup for the win.
