SEGMENT FIVE: Santino Marella vs. Alberto Del Rio
Match Result: Alberto Del Rio made Santino Marella tap out
Match Length: A minute and a half
Always nice to see the US Champion tap out in a minute and a half, isn’t it? After all, they have a feud with a ring announcer to keep alive… And after the rave reviews of last night’s tuxedo match, who can blame the WWE? Lightning in a bottle!
Rating: 3.0 out of 10

Match 3: Alberto Del Rio vs. Santino Marella
Del Rio starts with a kick, then sends Santino to the corner and stomps him down . Snapmare into a dropkick to the head. Pin for 1…2..NO! Del Rio with an arm bar and a jaw wrench. He is able to get out of it, Santino is, and gets some of his offense in, including a headbutt. he kicks Del RIo out of the corner, and goes for his Cobra. Del Rio with an enziguri, then he locks in the cross arm breaker for the quick tapout.
Winner: Alberto Del Rio (1/2*)
Meaningless, I suppose, also weird to see Del Rio come back ONE day after the PPV he had to miss.
After the match, Del RIo leaves but Ricardo stays. He grabs the arm of Santino and falls back hard, then leaves as well.
