WWE Championship Match
Chris Jericho vs CM Punk (C)
This match had high expectations, and it certainly delieverd. The first 10 minutes wasn't anything major, mostly grappling and the occasional dropkick/clothesline. After this, the pace picked up, Punk hit the Shining Wizard/Bulldog combo, Jericho hit an Enzurigi, Punk hit the Macho Elbow, Jericho nailed the lionsault. Around the 18 minute mark, Jericho and Punk were by the announce table. Punk tried a roundhouse kick, but Jericho ducked, and hit a take down. He tried to lock in the walls, but couldn't turn Punk. He instead fell back, and slingshot Punk into the announcers. Jericho went into the ring, at the count of 5. Punk just managed to make it in, at the count of 9, but Jericho immediatly hit a codebreaker! He pins Punk for 3 to become the new WWE Champion

Kane vs Randy Orton
This match was good, but not great. Both men got a reasonable amount of offense in, Kane hitting a sidewalk slam, and a running powerslam. Orton hit his modified backbreaker, and his old-school top rope, frog splash crossbody. The ending came after Orton hit his Rope Assisted DDT, and prepared for a RKO. He pounded on the mat, and went for it when Kane got to his feet, but was pushed off. Kane then came back with his own cutter, and pinned the Viper for 3

Hell in a Cell "End of an Era", Streak on the line Match w/ Shawn Michaels as special guest referee
Triple H vs The Undertaker
Before the match, Undertaker removed his hood, to reveal him wearing a bandana, but with no hair noticeable. This match started with a fast pace, Taker using his height advantage, while Trip uses his (somewhat slow) speed advantage. Taker got the early advantage, laying into Trip with Punches, before hitting a sidewalk slam. Shawn Michaels "Surprisingly" remained Unbiased for the most part of the match. Mid way through the match, they went to the outside. Hunter used the steel steps to his advantage, and went for a spinebuster, against the cell. However, Taker countered, a prepare for the Last Ride, and hit it, with Triple H's back, breaking the Cell Wall. They both moved into the ring, with Undertaker hitting Triple H's back with a chair, like Trip did to Taker last year. Undertaker left the ring, to get a kendo stick, but when he came back, he was caught by a low blow. Trip hit a pedigree for 2. He then began using the Kendo stick against Taker, to the point of making Taker's back bleed. Michaels told Triple H to stop, but Triple H refused, and pushed HBK away. Those 2 exchanged words as Undertaker sat up. HBK pushed Hunter back, straight into Taker, who managed to hit a tombstone. Undertaker was preparing to cover, when he was attacked from behind, by masked man, who broke into the cell. The masked man got the better of Undertaker, before putting him in the fireman's carry, and hit a F5! The masked man removed his mask, to reveal himself as The Next Big Thing, Brock Lesnar. Triple H drooped an arm over, and HBK counted to 2, before stopping the count. Triple H looked in shock, and stood up, but got hit by Sweet Chin Music! Taker got up, and went to get a table. He hit a last ride through the table, and HBK counted to 3!
The lights flash wildly and fireworks go off, revealing the titantron say 20-0. Undertaker smiled, as he left the ring, but not before shaking hands with Shawn Michaels. Shawn left the ring, staring as Triple H was taken away by the same method, as Undertaker the year before.

World Heavyweight Championship Match
Daniel Bryan (C) w/AJ vs Sheamus
This match was a decent match, but you would've expected more. Whenever Sheamus went on the attack, AJ would get involved. The match almost finished after about 3 minutes, when Sheamus was stuck in the LeBell Lock. There were a lot of counters, much more than normal. Bryan turned the Celtic Cross into a hurricarna, and the High Cross into a sunset flip powerbomb, while Sheamus moved out of the way of a missle dropkick, and hit a northern lights suplex, when Bryan locked in the Gulliotine Choke. The ending came, after Bryan locked in a sleeper, Sheamus shoved Bryan off, into the referee. AJ grabbed a chair, and tried to hit Sheamus with it, but he ducked and she hit Bryan. Sheamus then got her with a brogue kick, before doing the same thing to Bryan, and pinning him for the 3 count and the championship

John Cena vs The Rock.
This match started of cautiously, with neither man willing to make a mistake. Early on, Rock hit a spinebuster and The People's Elbow, but Cena kicked out at 2. Cena hit the five knuckle shuffle and the AA, but it was Rocky's go to kick out. Most of the match was in the ring, but when they were on the outside, Rocky hit a Samoan Drop, and Cena a gutwrench suplex. Towards the end of the match, The Miz came down to the ring and joined the commentary desk. John Cena tried to clothesline Rock, but hit the referee. Miz came into the ring with a chair, and looked to hit one of the particpants, but instead left the steel chair in the middle of the two, and headed to the back. Both Rock and Cena looked at each other, and then the chair, before deciding to exchange blows. Cena got the advantage, and had the Rock on his shoulders, and prepared for an AA, but the ref got up, so Cena kicked him down. He hit the AA on the chair, as a new referee came down to the ring and counted 1...2...3!
Winner: John Cena
Cena celebrated in the ring, to the crowd's disgust, and looked at the steel chair. He just smiled, and took the chair to the back with him, smiling the whole way. Rock sat up and looked disappointed with himself, before the screen fades to black
