Santino Marella & Vladimir Kozlov def. WWE Tag Team Champions Justin Gabriel & Heath Slater, The Usos and Mark Henry & Yoshi Tatsu in a Fatal 4-Way Elimination Tag Team Match
Italy and Russia banded together to take on the world – and they won. Santino Marella & Vladimir Kozlov outlasted WWE Tag Team Champions Justin Gabriel & Heath Slater, The Usos and Mark Henry & Yoshi Tatsu in a Fatal 4-Way Elimination Tag Team Match. The shocking win came after John Cena disrupted the bout, slipping out from under the ring to rattle his former Nexus cohorts, Slater & Gabriel. The distraction allowed the internationalmen of misery to capitalize and capture the WWE Tag Team Titles to much fanfare, namely Santino’s imaginary trombone.
Room service, anyone? After conducting a Raw interview via satellite from his hotel room, David Otunga was confronted and attacked by a stealthy John Cena, who had infiltrated the space. Anticipating a Cena strike, however, Husky Harris ambushed the former WWE employee from behind. Despite the trap, though, Cena managed to beat back his attackers, with Otunga bolting for the door, leaving his Nexus cohort behind to feel the pain.
John Cena confronted Wade Barrett
The sun appears to be setting on Wade Barrett’s empire. The cocky Englishman called out John Cena and told him once again that he would never hire him back onto WWE. In that case, Cena informed him, he will never stop ambushing The Nexus. Stalemate.
In a moment of frustration, Barrett ordered his Nexus minions to attack. In a moment of utter defiance, however, each member of the band of outlaws turned their backs on Barrett, walking instead to the locker room area. Their mutiny left the Englishman a sitting duck, and Cena knew it. He charged Barrett, who somehow managed to squirm away and dart for the lockers.
Once in the locker room area, the Nexus leader beelined for David Otunga, who gladly told Barrett he has two options: Either he hires Cena back next week, or the Englishman is no longer a part of The Nexus.
