We're live!

The show opens with a "In Memory of" for the Macho Man still that leads to the WWE intro.  We roll right into a slick "Over the Limit" intro.

R-Truth vs. Rey Mysterio:

The crowd sounds dead as R-Truth is announced and makes his way out.  R-Truth grabs a mic and starts tearing into the crowd.  Begin rant.  Parking lot, rain, hippies, "little Jimmy", conspiracies, and then finally Rey Mysterio.  End rant.  Crowd not digging it.  Rey makes his entrance, and we're on our way to the first match of the night.

After two near misses with finishers by both men after a back and forth affair, R-Truth pulled Rey from the outside of the ring, causing Rey to hit his head on the edge of the ring.  Truth went straight to a clothesline to the dazed Rey, he threw him back in the ring shortly after, and landed his unnamed finisher, scoring a clean finish right after.  After the win, he hits Rey with a water bottle.  Yep, R-Truth is a MADMAN!!!... R-Truth def. Rey Mysterio

We cut to Miz backstage, cutting a promo saying he's going to prove the doubters wrong again, saying he's never quit in his life. 

WWE Intercontinental Championship Match:  Wade Barret (c) vs. Ezekiel Jackson

After seeing some clips of Jackson's departure from The Corre, both men head to the ring, and the second match of the evening begins.  After a drawn out brawl between the former friends, a series of slams by Jackson led to The Corre running in and attacking him while he was going for the finish.  After the bell is rung, The Corre tears into Jackson, and leave him laid out in the ring.  Ezekiel Jackson def. Wade Barret by DQ, Barret retains the WWE Intercontinental Championship.

CM Punk  and Mason Ryan walk into their locker room to find Otunga and McGillicutty laid out, saying that Big Show and Kane got a hold of them.  Punk is indifferent, Ryan is angered, and wants to avenge his team mates.  Ryan accuses Punk of not caring about them, Punk says he cares more about he and Ryan.  The rift continues to grow, Punk ends the segment by telling the two to "walk it off".  Love it.  

Sin Cara vs. Chavo Guerrero:

This will surely be exciting.  As the match begins it looks like Sin Cara's lightning is staying on during the match?  Interesting.  The match is more contested than Sin Cara's matches I've seen thus far, he also has worked the crowd better than before.  No botches either...and there goes the finish.  He pulled it off, but during the last portion of his epic "round the world" hurricanrana he had some trouble.  Bummer.  Still fun.  Sin Cara def. Chavo Guerrero

Promo between Randy Orton and Christian.  Christian being confident, Orton says when he fights a "feel good story" there's no happily ever after.  Alberto Del Rio making his way to the ring now.  Love the Del Rio entrance as usually, he rolled up in a Bentley tonight.  I wish a "We want Cro Cop!" chant would start up.  I'd be able to die happy.

Del Rio starts talking about destiny, and talks about the immigration problem in this part of the USA (Seattle), he bashes Canadians.  Yeah, it's good night.  He then says it's their destiny to show up in Seattle and complain in coffee houses about the weather.  Hah!  Del Rio goes on to say he's not mad about not being in the main event, he knows he could make both Cena and The Miz say "no mas" with his cross armbreaker.  He assures us that it's his destiny to be the WWE Champion, one way or another.  Big Show and Kane crash the party, heading into the ring.

Kane says he's already angry since the rapture didn't happen yesterday (lmfao!), and he tells Del Rio that if he doesn't get out of the ring, he'll end up like Otunga and McGillicutty.  He makes a quick retreat, and CM Punk/Mason Ryan make their way out.

WWE Tag Team Championship Match:  Big Show and Kane vs. CM Punk and Mason Ryan

During the match, CM Punk attempted an elbow off the top rope Macho Man style.  I had a feeling he'd be the one to pay homage.  The match overall was fun, and helps build the case for the push for more tag teams.  Big Show and Kane land a team choke slam after Kane sent CM Punk out of the ring.  Big Show and Kane def. CM Punk and Mason Ryan, retaining the titles.

Capital Punishment PPV promo where the announcers ringside ask what it'd be like for the president to hold a press conference regarding the show.  Funny.  Divas championship bout up next.

WWE Divas Championship Match:  Brie Bella (c) vs. Kelly Kelly

Twins switch, Brie wins.  That wasn't predictable at all.  No Kharma appearance?  Brie Bella def. Kelly Kelly, retains WWE Divas Championship.

Very good Orton/Christian clip, stoked for this now.

WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match:  Randy Orton (c) vs. Christian

The match was easily the best of the night so far, with near finishes by both men, and a great deal of counters.  Christian landed a spear, but couldn't get the job done.  For the finish, both men countered each other's finishes, but Orton finally landed the RKO, and got the pin.  Christian might not be champion, but after that performance, I feel like he can be taken seriously as a threat.  After Orton celebrated, he helped Christian to his feet, but Christian pushed him away.  Christian was about to leave, but he stepped back in, and after a tense staredown, they shook hands, and an upset Christian headed backstage.

Kiss My Foot Match:  Jerry Lawler vs. Michael Cole

Cole comes to the ring after Lawler enters, he's wearing his regular announcing attire, and walking with a limp.  Cole grabs a mic, and says he's "medically prohibited" from competing tonight.  He's reading this doctor's note just as if it was a GM message.  Apparently, his athlete's foot has gotten infected.  The ref takes the note and rips it up!  The bell is rung and Lawler swarms him.  Lawler makes quick work of Cole, securing a three count after a swift beat down after avoiding the funk on Cole's foot.  Lawler calls in Eve, who climbs to the top rope lands a big splash to the downed Cole.  Jerry is milking this for all it's worth.  Now, he waves down Jim Ross.  I like where this is going, looks like retribution will be finalized, and this feud will be squashed.  Ross brought some BBQ sauce, he pops the top and makes Cole drink it, and gets it all over his face.  Lawler is now shoeless on one foot, and looking to make Cole kiss it.  Cole escapes, and says theres no way.  "Not like this."  He heads up the ramp and picks up a mic.  Cole says it may look like he lost, but he's not a loser.  He then says that those in the ring are the losers.  Cole says he'll never kiss King's foot.  Bret Hart shows up!  Cole backs up, heading towards the ring again.  Bret grabs him and throws him into the ring.  Cole is squirming around on the ground, BRET GOES FOR A SHARPSHOOTER!  Cole is writhing in pain, and Lawler sticks his foot in his mouth.  Epic.  Jerry Lawler def. Michael Cole

J.R. joins the crew at ringside, and we're treated to the lead in to Cena vs. Miz.

WWE Championship "I Quit" Match:  John Cena (c) vs. The Miz

Before the match begins, The Miz takes a Mic, and says that Cena picked a bad stipulation, because Alex Reily can join in without being DQ'ed.  We're now looking at a 2-on-1 "I Quit" match.  Interesting.  After taking well over 85% of the match getting beaten with various weapons by The Miz and Alex Reily, but never saying "I Quit", Reily played a recording of Cena saying "I quit" into the microphone, but the plot was quickly overturned by the referee, who caught them.  When the match was restarted, Cena sprang into action, chasing down The Miz with his belt, whipping him up the ramp, and forcing him to say "I quit" with the STFU.  John Cena def. The Miz, retaining the WWE Title.

A bit of an anticlimactic, predictable finish, but the show was solid, and highly enjoyable overall.  Join us tomorrow night for the Raw Liveblog, where we'll hopefully see a Randy Savage tribute, as well as the aftermath of all of tonights matches and events.
