Kelly Kelly & Eve Torres vs. Natalya & Beth Phoenix: DUD

Zack Ryder vs. Dolph Ziggler: 1/4*

John Cena & CM Punk vs. The Miz & R-Truth: **

Live in Cleveland! Punk starts the show, selling the beatdown from Night of Champions. Uh oh, Punk agrees with Truth and Miz...there is a conspiracy! HHH interrupts. Alberto deserves a rematch, and so does Punk. So at Hell in a Cell, it's a Triple Threat HIAC match! HHH doesn't mind going through Punk again. Punk agrees it's not HHH. John Lauranaitis comes out, hoarse voice and all. Punk blames Lauranaitis and is at the center of the conspiracy. Lauranaitis "future endeavors" Punk, but HHH vetoes that quickly. HHH says someone's getting fired tonight. Uh oh.

8-man tag starts the wrestling portion of the night. Average here. Good ending to further the deal between Sheamus and Christian.

Alberto wants Vince back. HHH wishes him luck in that HIAC match. Alberto comes out in his ride tonight. Ricardo announcing him, of course. ADR hit a stunner on Morrison, but got no reaction from the crowd. Submission win. That was a fast match, about a minute.

Hugh Jackman is the guest star tonight. Vickie interrupts...announcers calling her a wolverine tonight (the whole Ohio State/Michigan thing, even though they're not in Columbus). Vickie hits on Jackman. Ziggler is just not believing his ears. Ziggler says he doesn't like Jackman interrupting his celebration time. Cleveland is the city of underdogs, and Ziggler says they will lose to him. Jackman will take an underdog and get him to win against Ziggler. "We want Ryder!" chants start! Jackman agrees! Ziggler vs. Ryder tonight!

Sin Cara #1 (Mistico) is in action tonight. Cody then comes out. Then Sin Cara #2 (Hunico, the slightly bigger of the two) comes out. Announcers are confused. We get a lucha libre show between the two Sin Caras. No match here.

Awesome Truth both apologize to HHH. HHH accepts the apology, but they are both fined $250,000. Oh, and they face Punk and Cena in tag action tonight.

Jim Ross interviews Henry in the ring. Henry looks at JR and basically tells JR to apologize for not having faith in Henry and for wanting to fire Mark. JR apologizes. Mark hates asskissers and assaults JR. King intervenes.  King gets nuked. World's Strongest Slamin the ring, then through the announce table. Sucks to be him.

Divas time. KK and Eve are getting cheered tonight, unlike in Buffalo. As usual, a short match.A sloppy match as well. Not good.

Time for Ryder and Ziggler. Jackman sporting the Ryder headband. Huge following for Ryder here. Vickie slaps Zack, ref tosses Vickie out. Jackman punches Ziggler, Rough Ryder for three!

Cena and Punk talk backstage, and the crowd is nuts even for that. Time for the main event! Decent match here. Followed the usual tag match formula, but the crowd was into it. Punk got the hot tag tonight. Miz and Truth collide. GTS to Miz for three. Nice end to this one.

HHH is back out. Punk...good match. Miz and Truth...fired! Huh? The locker room is shocked too. Scott Stanford wants a word with HHH, which didn't last long. Miz and Truth attack HHH, and the locker room literally throws Awesome Truth out of the building. This will be interesting to see....
