Kane doesn’t appear to be happy with Miz and he starts off
the match with an old fashioned beating. Miz tries to come back, but Kane stops
Miz in his tracks. As Miz comes off the ropes, Kane helps him across the ring

Mixed Tag Team Match
Colin Delaney & Kelly Kelly
Mike Knox & Layla
Holy crap! Is WWE ever going to let Colin Delaney actually
wrestle in the ring? I am not looking forward to seeing Delaney get beat all
over the ring by Knox again. The women begin the match with Layla going for some
pounding. Both women end up out on the floor, Kelly rolls Layla back in and then
goes off the second rope with a cross body block. Knox enters the ring to break
up the pin, Delaney charges in to help Kelly and Knox enters the ring, sending
Delaney to the floor. Kelly drops Layla, goes for the cover and gets the three
count before Knox can get back into the ring. Time: 2 minutes
Winners: Kelly Kelly & Colin Delaney
After the match, Knox enters the ring to deliver a corkscrew
neck breaker to Delaney as Estrada comes charging down the ramp headed to the
ring. Estrada enters the ring with his cigar, tells Kelly to get out of the
ring, tells the ref to ring the bell and we have
Estrada picks up Delaney, delivers a neck breaker and gets
the three count. Time: Under 1 minute.
Winner: Armando Estrada
RAW Rebound: William Regal, General Manager and King of the
Ring, Regal tells Mr. Kennedy that the next person who shows up in the ring will
be fired, no matter who that person is. The
next person to enter the ring is none other than Vincent Kennedy McMahon.
McMahon is there to tell Regal that there will be a match between Kenney and
Regal and the loser of the match will be fired. In case you hadn’t heard,
Regal lost the match and was fired. For
those of you who don’t know, William Regal was suspended from WWE for a second
violation of the Wellness Policy. Nice way to write him off the air for his
suspension time. WWE must think the
WWE fans all wear blinders.

him backward with a Russian leg sweep before tagging in Guerrero. Guerrero comes

After the match, the fans hear the entrance music and Show
appears. Morrison and Guerrero look a little worried but they stay in the ring
and charge at Show as he comes over the top rope. Show takes care of Guerrero,
takes out Punk, then Morrison. Show asks for a mic and announces that the GM of
ECW forgot that Show is a former ECW Champion and Show will be putting himself
in the Singapore Cane Match that is coming up at One Night Stand. As Dreamer
