WWE Tag Team Championship: (c) The Usos vs. The Real Americans vs. Los Matadores vs. Curtis Axel & Ryback

What went down: This was changed to an elimination match during the pre-show. Jack Swagger eliminated Los Matadores. Antonio Cesaro eliminated Ryback and Curtis Axel, leaving it down to the Usos and the Real Americans. The Usos and Real Americans had a real fun finish to the match, and it took a double team super kick and a double team splash for the Usos to retain the titles.

Result: The Usos d. Real Americans, Ryback & Curtis Axel and Los Matadores (Retain WWE Tag Team Championship)

Winner Goes to the Main Event: Triple H vs. Daniel Bryan

What went down: Bryan got off to a big start, but was crotched off the top rope by Triple H and then Triple H went to work on Bryan's injured shoulder, even coming close to a count out win on a few occasions. Triple H even utilized the dreaded cross-face chicken wing! Bryan fighting back, though. He plants Triple H off the top rope with a sunset flip power bomb and then starts to catch fire before being turned inside-out by a Triple H clothesline.

The two went back-and-forth some more before Triple H hit his signature Pedigree, but Bryan managed to kick out at two. He went for the Pedigree again, but Bryan held out, so Triple H leveled him with two vicious knees to the head. Triple H went for Pedigree again, but Bryan escapes. HHH went for a back suplex, but Bryan flipped out of it and hit the flying knee to win the match and move on to the main event. But after the match, HHH attacked Bryan, running his shoulder into the post and then hitting it viciously with a steel chair.

Result: Daniel Bryan d. Triple H (Pinfall/Flying knee)

Six-Man Tag Team Match: The Shield vs. New Age Outlaws and Kane

What went down: A dominant win for The Shield here. This lasted about three minutes. The Shield finished the Outlaws off at the same time with a double triple power bomb.

Result: The Shield d. Kane & New Age Outlaws (Pinfall/Power bomb)

30-Man Over the Top Rope Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal

What went down: No surprise entrants here, which is disappointing. Big Show eliminated Mark Henry. Kofi Kingston with the spot of the match, keeping the edge of his feet on the steps. It all came down to Big Show and Cesaro. Show was looking dominant, but Cesaro slipped out of a slam attempt and then lifted Big Show up and body slammed Show to the floor to win! WOW.

Result: Cesaro wins, last eliminating Big Show

Grudge Match: John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt

What went down: Back-and-forth match. Cena went for a move and Wyatt went into a crab walk, stopping Cena dead in his tracks. The mind games are strong with this one. Cena pulling out all the stops. Drop kicks, going to the top rope, etc. He hit an outside cross body on Harper and Rowan, and then later speared Harper through the barricade. Cena hit the Attitude Adjustment on Wyatt, but he kicked out. He also got him in the STF, but Wyatt got to the ropes. Wyatt goes to the outside, grabs a chair, gives it to Cena and repeatedly yells "finish me!" Cena hits Rowan with the chair and Wyatt goes for a roll-up and then Sister Abigail, but Cena counters into the AA for the win.

Result: John Cena d. Bray Wyatt (Pinfall/Attitude Adjustment)

Grudge Match: The Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar

What went down: A slow start to this one. The crowd seemingly needs a few moments to get back into the swing of things after such a hot start to the show. Undertaker took control early, but Lesnar went after Taker's leg to take over. Lesnar kicked out of the choke slam while Undertaker kicked out of an F5. Taker twice had the Hell's Gate (gogoplata) locked in, but Lesnar slammed his way out. Lesnar went for a kimura, but Taker turned it into one of his own, but Lesnar got the ropes.

Undertaker goes for Old School, but Lesnar pulls him down right into the F5, but Taker kicks out at two. Lesnar rag-dolling Undertaker right now. And then he hits him with a third F5 and the referee counts 1-2-3. Unbelievable. The crowd is absolutely stunned. I've never heard a wrestling crowd as quiet as this. Brock Lesnar has broken the streak.

Result: Brock Lesnar d. The Undertaker (Pinfall/F5)

Vickie Guerrero Divas Championship Invitational

What went down: This wasn't as bad as I would've thought it would be. The Bella Twins hit stereo dives and AJ retained it when she locked in the Black Widow on Naomi.

Result: AJ Lee retains title

WWE World Heavyweight Championship: (c) Randy Orton vs. Batista vs. Daniel Bryan

What went down: Triple H and Stephanie McMahon come out as Bryan has Orton in the Yes Lock and HHH pulls the referee out of the ring and then Batista hits the spine buster and the Batista Bomb, as referee Scott Armstrong, who is on the take, comes out, but Bryan kicks out and then kicks Armstrong before hitting a suicide dive on HHH, McMahon and Armstrong. Triple H is not pleased and grabs his sledgehammer, but Bryan gets control of it and hammers Triple H with it!

Now Orton and Batista team up and start beating the heck out of Bryan. They starting tearing apart two of the announce tables and combine on a Batista Bomb right into an RKO through the table. Wow. Now they are bringing a bunch of medics and a stretcher down for Bryan. Orton is bleeding from the back after landing on a monitor as Batista brings the fight to Orton. Bryan's being taken away on a stretcher as Orton rallies and hits the draping DDT onto the floor.

As Orton delivers the move, Bryan breaks free from the stretcher. Orton comes right over and throws him into the steel steps. Orton calls for the RKO, but Bryan locks in the Yes Lock, only to have Batista break it up. Bryan grabs Batista and applies the Yes Lock only for Orton to break it up. Orton goes for the RKO on Batista but he counters. Batista goes to spear Orton, but Orton leap frogs and Batista hits Bryan right in the head. Orton hits Batista with the RKO but Batista kicks out at the final moment.

Batista hits Orton with the Batista Bomb but Bryan comes flying in and hits the knee. He locks in the Yes Lock and Batista taps! New champion!

Result: Daniel Bryan d. Batista and Randy Orton (Submission/Yes Lock)

And a friendly reminder, fight fans, if you complain about WWE coverage being on an MMA blog, per Kid Nate, you will be warned and then banned.
