I understand Layla has relocated from Miami, FL to Los Angeles, CA in order to attend wrestling school. Shouldnít that be a prerequisite before getting in the ring? Jimmy Want Yang pins The Miz to win the match.

The Main event tonight will be CM Punk, ECW Champion, against Chavo Guerrero, non-title match. If Chavo wins, he gets a chance at the championship.

This was not a match. It isn't like we don't already know Colin doesn't have a chance to take out V. I donít even watch Vís matches especially when WWE insists on pitting someone so much smaller against him.

Shelton Benjamin is backstage heading toward the arena.
