ST. LOUIS, Mo. – Although St. Louis lies some 900 miles from Seaside Heights, with Jersey Shore’s Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi acting as celebrity guest star, there was bound to be some explosive grenades, painful fist pumps and even a couple of cheap shots.

John Cena def. Alberto Del Rio by Disqualification

For the first time ever, John Cena, the No. 1 contender for the WWE Championship, faced off against Alberto Del Rio, the No. 1 contender for the World Heavyweight Championship. As the two men squared off, Del Rio’s former NXT Rookie, Brodus Clay watched from the Mexican elitist’s corner until the proceedings were interrupted by The Rock. Or at least what looked like The Rock. In actuality, it was WWE Champion The Miz dressed as The Brahma Bull.

The shenanigans distracted Cena, who quickly fell under the attack of Del Rio and Clay. With the Cenation Commander-in-Chief down, Miz joined in the beatdown, eventually leaving Cena a lifeless heap on the arena floor.

Raw GM arranged two matches

WWE Champion The Miz couldn’t help himself. The arrogant Superstar ranted and ranted about how much more “awesome” he is than John Cena, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and anyone else on the Raw roster. Fate would intervene when Raw’s anonymous General Manager arranged two first-time ever matches. The first will pit No. 1 contender for the WWE Title, John Cena, against the No. 1 contender for the World Heavyweight Title, Alberto Del Rio. The second contest forces “The Cleveland Screamer” himself to face The Great Khali.
