John Cena vs. Heath Slater w/ 3MB
Slater ducks in the ropes a we get a huge “Cena” chant. They lock up and Slater hits an armdrag and gloats. Cena takes him down with an armbar and monkey-flips Slater. Cena continues to work the arm and mock 3MB. Slater reverses into a headlock but Cena gets out and hits an armdrag as Slater goes out to regroup with 3MB. They come up with a game plan in the huddle and Slater re-enters the ring. 3MB surround Cena in the ring and Slater slams him from behind as Cena tries to chase Mahal out. The ref sends the illegal members of 3MB to the back. Cena drop toe holds Slater from behind as he argues with the ref but Slater avoids the STF. We take a break.
