MIAMI – The WWE Universe was clearly in the mood to celebrate. Less than 24 hours after President Barack Obama announced the death of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, it was time to keep those spirits high by celebrating the biggest birthday party in TV history.

Rey Mysterio & U.S. Champion Kofi Kingston def. Drew McIntyre & Jack Swagger

The Raw roster has been put on notice. One week after being drafted to the red brand, Rey Mysterio showed why he’s still WWE’s littlest big man. The Master of the 619 teamed with new United States Champion Kofi Kingston to tackle Drew McIntyre & Jack Swagger. With the newly-christened U.S. Champion in his corner, Mysterio pitted altitude against attitude and emerged the winner by pinning his Scottish opponent.

Having observed from ringside, Alberto Del Rio decided it was time for him to make an impression. The Mexican Aristocrat attempted to ambush his masked countryman, but Rey fended off his attack.
