Christian cuts a promo about last week. Mark Henry and Sheamus come out to stir s*** up. They end up beating down Christian until the new WWE World Champion Randy Orton comes out and makes the save. The crowd is going nuts!
Backstage, Christian and Orton hint that they'll face each other much sooner than later. Christian says he'll be more ready next time. I mean, he did come off a ladder match with Del Rio last week...
If I was a betting man, I'd say it's Orton/Christian at the Over The Limit 2011 pay-per-view in a World Title rematch. Then again, I bet on the Grizzlies...
UPDATE: It is official. Christian vs. Randy Orton in a World Heavyweight Title rematch at the PPV. Too bad it's less compelling now. Well, to me anyway.
Smackdown Main Event Tonight: SheaMark Henry vs. Randy Orton/Christian.
Sin Cara def. Daniel Bryan w/ Chavo Guerrero's unwanted help. Cara wasn't happy. Bryan's losing streak continues. Is this the curse of the APPLE?
Divas match. Layla comes out. Time for a Divas bathroom break. Don't get me wrong. She's fine, but she's also a former Heat cheerleader. Boo! Go Grizz! (Hey we don't have any other pro teams here!) Oh wait. Kharma comes out and destroys her in the middle of a promo. Awesome. She also chased Michael Cole who bashed Jerry Lawler and his dead mom again. C'MON SON!
Guess I'll just wait for the Hornswoggle segment.
Is he still employed?

Ezekiel Jackson is supposedly on his way to extract revenge after The Corre turn on him last week. What is up with WWE killing these great stables like Corre and Nexus? Stables make superstars relevant. Except APPLE.
WWE Tag Team Champion Kane def. Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett by disqualification in a non-title match, after The Corre (sans Ezekiel Jackson) interfered.
Big Zeke came out to destroy The Corre, but to no avail. Remember when Zeke you to wear those really awkward looking Rick Ross beach shirts when he "managed" Brian Kendrick?
Ah, the memories.
Wrestling Trivia: Zeke is the last ECW Champion--and probably the most irrelevant.
FCW prospect Jinder Mahal interrupts The Great Khali's "Kiss Cam." (Remember that?). He tells the Punjabi Playboy of Pimpalation that he can't be taken seriously anymore. But Steve Carrell in Get Smart took him seriously...
Update on injured WWE Superstar.
Dashing Cody Rhodes def. his old tag team partner/Legacy member Ted DiBiase Jr. R.I.P. Teddy's career. Who the hell did he p*** off? Teddy as a spoiled, rich kid that's a...babyface?

Took a bathroom break. The guy by me says it's going to be Ezekiel Jackson vs. Wade Barrett for the WWE Intercontinental Title at Over The Limit. For some (obvious) reason, this doesn't have as much heat as Faarooq vs. The Rock when the two were Nation of Domination members in 1998.
Ah, the memories.
Wrestling trivia: Mark Henry, who is in the main event tonight, was a member of The Nation of Domination. Yes, Mark Henry is like the Statue of David. He never ages. He just gets hairier.
Main event: World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton and Christian def. King Sheamus and Mark Henry when both superstars hit their finishers.
There's definitely a sign of mutual respect, but another loss to Orton and Christian could be a heel by next month.
