Pre-Show Battle Royal to name No. 1 Contender to WWE United States Champion Antonio Cesaro on YouTube - Winner will face Cesaro later tonight.
16 man battle royal featuring Zack Ryder (big ovation), Brodus Clay, Titus O'Neil, Darren Young, Primo Colon, Epico Colon, Justin Gabriel, Lord Tensai (w/ Sakamoto), Michael McGillicutty, Jinder Mahal, JTG, Tyson Kidd (who got a nice pop), Drew McIntyre, Ted DiBiase Jr., Heath Slater, Santino Marella
Heath Slater bitched at everyone and got eliminated first. McGillicutty eliminated eather quickly too. As does for Teddy DiBiase. He comes from money and now goes to Midcard Hell. Clay eliminates Primo. Clay suplexes Mahal out of the ring Taz-style. Epico is gorilla-pressed out by Clay onto Primo and Mahal. Tensai flings Gabriel out onto the men on the floor. Tensai then powerbombs Kidd out onto the fallen men. Clay and Tensai duke it out.
Marella tries a double clothesline on the big men and epically fails. The Primetime Players eliminate Clay, who may have suffered a shoulder injury. Marella eliminates JTG via Cobra. YEP. Ryder dropkicks McIntyre out. Poor Drew. Marella pulls out the Cobra and takes out Tensai and Young. He tries to pin them, but duh, it's a battle royal, bro. Marella tries to throw one of them out. Primetime Players eliminate Marella. Final four at Young, O'Neil, Tensai, and Ryder. O'Neil suplexes Young onto Tensai. Ryder mounting a comeback and eliminates O'Neil.
Young tries to eliminate Ryder, but gets thrown out by Tensai. Tensai attempts a powerbomb on Ryder, but Long Island Iced Z frankensteiners him out of the ring. Woo Woo Woo!
Winner: Zack Ryder
Fun midcard battle royal that gets the crowd going. Ryder faces Antonio Cesaro for the United States Championship tonight.
