Raw 1,000 results: John Cena failed to win the WWE Title; The Rock floored by CM Punk

World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus, Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara def. Alberto Del Rio, Dolph Ziggler & Chris Jericho
Before the match, Hall of Fame announcer Jim Ross joined Michael Cole and Jerry “The King” Lawler to call the action, adding to the historic feel of Raw’s 1,000th episode.
The Six-Man Tag Team Match presented an interesting mix of Superstars, with luchadores Mysterio and Sin Cara joining forces on one side, while Chris Jericho and Dolph Ziggler (at odds to say the least) were on the other trio. Alberto Del Rio did his best to take the wind out of the smaller Sin Cara, but the international sensation connected with a swinging DDT and made the hot tag to Sheamus, who quickly showed off his brute strength.
The action soon spilled to the outside, with Mysterio landing an awesome seated senton onto Del Rio. In the ring, The Great White powered out of both the Walls of Jericho and a Codebreaker attempt, and then drilled Jericho with a Brogue Kick to seize an emphatic victory for his team.
