It looked like Mark Henry cost Christian another shot at Randy Orton’s World Heavyweight Championship. But in the end, he helped him get it.
Days after his loss at Capitol Punishment, General Manager Theodore Long gave Christian another chance at the title if he could beat Kane. Things didn’t look good for Christian in the match when Kane caught him with a shot in midair and then hit the flying clothesline. But before he could hit the choke slam, Mark Henry came in and clotheslined Kane, ending the match in disqualification.
Long then declared that Christian could still get a title opportunity if he and Henry won a tag team match against Kane and Orton.
Henry seemed to have Kane down for a while until Kane pulled a choke slam out of nowhere and tagged in Orton. Christian came in untagged after Orton, only to get hit with his scoop slam, DDT off the ropes and RKO, only to have Henry hit the Worlds Strongest Slam for the win, giving Christian the title shot.
Earlier in the night, Henry assaulted The Big Show in retaliation for Show going after him last week. Henry also went after Show at Capitol Punishment.
Show was very soft spoken in an interview with Matt Striker as he said Henry was in the wrong place last week. Henry then plowed Show through a wall, and Show had to be taken to a hospital.
Heath Slater and Justin Gabriel managed to get one back on Jimmy and Jay Uso.
Jay managed to turn things around when he turn Gabriel’s leap off the corner into a Samoan Drop and tagged in Jimmy, who got Slater with a modified body drop. When Gabriel broke up a pincover, Jay threw him out of the ring only to have Slater throw out Jay. Jimmy got Slater with a superkick, but Slater got his knees in Jimmy’s face when he went for the Snuka Splash, allowing him to roll up for the win.
Without the Corre to back him up, Wade Barrett is finding it harder to succeed as he tried to take back the Intercontinental Championship from Ezekiel Jackson.
Barrett rolled out of the ring after taking multiple clotheslines but caught Jackson with a boot to the face when Jackson went out to get him. Barrett then got them back in the ring and looked to hit Wasteland, but Jackson countered it into the Torture Rack for the submission.
Cody Rhodes continues to look to humiliate Daniel Bryan on a weekly basis.
Bryan went after DiBiase after he tried to trip him with the referee not looking, but that allowed Rhodes to get Bryan with a flying knee off the ropes, getting Bryan’s knee tangled in the ropes. Once the referee got him untangled, Rhodes hit Bryan with another knee and finished him off with Cross Rhodes. Once again, Rhodes slipped a paper bag on Bryan’s head after the match.
Rhodes may be winning, but DiBiase continues to struggle even as he re-aligns himself with his old partner, and he lost to Sin Cara.
Cara looked to take control with a missile drop kick, a springboard head scissors and a backflip shoulder off the ropes. DiBiase did grab Cara off a springboard and turn it into a spinebuster, but Cara fought back with a spinning head scissors slam for the win.
Jindar Majal’s match against Yoshi Tatsu never officially got underway. Majal began assaulting Tatsu before the referee signaled for the opening bell while The Great Khali stood in the corner. After suplexing him, Majal whipped Tatsu into a chop to the head by Khali before hitting him with the Full Nelson slam. Majal then declared that more would happen “until my potential and superiority is recognized.” He also stated that Khali’s only purpose now is to serve him.
