John Cena spent a long time in the ring after his match. They showed a lot of shots of shocked fans. Cena hugged some kids before leaving the ringside area.
Backstage, Josh Mathews was wandering through the darkness and found Paul Bearer. Mathews asked why he returned after a six year absence. He said that Kane may think he is the only one with a master plan, Bearer has his own plans and he's been biding his time for the last few years waiting. He said that Kane may be the "Devil's favorite demon" but he'll never be the "Father of Destruction's favorite son."
They ran the WWE promotional video on the company's work with the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
WWE Unified Divas champion Michelle McCool vs. Natalya
Natalya took McCool down immediately and controlled her but McCool went to the ropes. McCool went outside. Natalya followed, drilling Layla El in the process, but was caught with a clothesline on the floor. McCool dropped a number of knees to Natalya's back once when they returned to the ring. McCool snapmared her over and cinched in a body scissor to wear down Natalya. Natalya got to her feet with the scissor still locked on and ran McCool into the buckles. McCool held onto into and ran her back down to the mat. Natalya began firing her way out of the move. Natalya finally escaped and drilled McCool with a clothesline. Layla got on the apron and Natalya grabbed her. McCool threw a kick but got her partner instead. Natalya rolled her up for a two count.
McCool went for the Styles Clash but Natalya turned it into the Sharpshooter. McCool reversed it into a heel hook but Natalya turned it back into another Sharpshooter. Just as McCool was about to tap (and she started tapping), Layla tossed a shoe at Natalya. J.J. Dillon would approve.
Your winner by DQ, Natalya.
Obviously, no title change.

Back in the ring, Kane went right back to attacking Taker's bad leg. Kane, who had a trickle of blood running from the back of his head, went after Taker's leg and ankle. Taker made his way back to his feet and they battled back and forth, slugging it out. Taker ducked a clothesline and nailed the heat seeking missile.
