Jey Uso got the pin with a Samoan drop on Marella. After the match Marella and Tamina knocked out both Usos with a double cobra.

CM Punk came to the ring to gloat about knocking John Cena out of action. This brought out Wade Barrett who took credit for injuring Cena at a house show, he also insisted that he was still leader of Nexus. Punk and Barrett began to argue when the anonymous General Manager dinged in to announce a Triple Threat Steel Cage Match involving Barrett, Randy Orton and Sheamus to determine the a new number one contender for the WWE Title. Punk and Barrett then agreed that if Barrett won the match he would gain control of Nexus but if he lost Punk would be the group’s leader.

Alberto Del Rio def. R-Truth
The returning R-Truth challenged the cockiest Smackdown superstar Del Rio to a match after Del Rio promised he would dominate the Raw and Smackdown superstars in the Royal Rumble match. Del Rio proved he spoke the truth when he pinned the rapping wrestler.
