WWE Champion John Cena vs. CM Punk Viewer's Choice Match ended in a No Contest
The WWE Universe chose CM Punk to face WWE Champion John Cena in the night's main event. Although Cena was gaining the upper hand against the masked leader of the Straight Edge Society, the match was cut short when last season’s NXT Rookies – led by season one winner Wade Barrett – charged the ring and laid waste to everything and everyone in sight. Following the mayhem, a battered Cena was carted out on a stretcher.
Kane def. Sheamus in a Viewer's Choice Match
Sheamus’ Irish eyes are locked on John Cena’s WWE Championship, and, no, they’re not smiling. But before The Celtic Warrior faces off against Cena, Randy Orton and Edge at Fatal 4-Way on June 20, the WWE Universe decided that he must first get through Kane unscathed. The Big Red Machine won the Viewer's Choice decision by a wide margin, capturing 88 percent of the vote.
Suspecting that his opponent might somehow be responsible for incapacitating his brother, The Undertaker, Kane unloaded on Sheamus with a series of vicious physical attacks. Although Sheamus twice escaped The Big Red Monster's chokeslam, the third time wasn't the charm for the Irish Superstar, who chose to fight another day and allowed himself to be counted out.
