OK match. You can see 3MB is getting over with the crowd as an undercard act.
They plugged the WWE '13 videogame. That is actually a hell of a fun game.
Video feature on the Vickie Guerrero allegtions.
Josh Mathews interviewed R-Truth. Mathews tried to talk to Little Jimmy and Truth asked him if he was trying to say that he trying to talk to imaginary people. Truth cut a decent promo about bringing the U.S. title back to America.

Kaitlyn was walking backstage when a hooded woman in a blonde wig attacked her. She fought off the attacker and ripped off the wig. It was Aksana who scampered away. Eve showed up and faked concern so Kaitlyn shoved her down and stormed off.

Eve choked Kaitlyn while in the corner. She dropped an elbow across Kaitlyn's back and locked her in a triangle style headscissors. Eve went to the top but was shoved off, nearly killing her. She was then shoved off the apron, which looked equally scary.

Kaitlyn grabbed at Eve's legs while Eve held onto the apron screaming. She kicked off Kaitlyn and left the ring, nailing the challenger when she followed. Kaitlyn was tossed back in the ring and nailed with a neckbreaker for a three count.
Your winner and still WWE Divas champion, Eve Torres!
