WWE Champion Randy Orton defeated John Cena. First Orton was disqualified for shoving the referee, but Vince McMahon informed Lilian Garcia (perhaps telepathically, since Vince did not appear before the crowd) that the match was to continue. Orton then walked away from the ring and was counted out, but again the match was ordered to continue. Orton then pinned Cena with his feet on the ropes, but the match was restarted again. Cena placed Orton in the STF but a planted fan ran in and put the referee in a rear naked choke. After a new referee took over, Orton gave Cena an RKO for the pin

CM Punk defeated World Champion Jeff Hardy to win the title in a Tables, Ladders and Chairs match. After the match the Undertaker returned and chokeslammed the new champion.
