Kane opens the show with the promise of entertaining destruction. CM Punk walks out to congratulate him and remind him he can pull the trigger on a title shot at any time. Chavo protests that he should get a rematch and claims Kane sneaked up from behind at WM because he was afraid. Chavo wants a tag match and brings out Shelton who awkwardly uses the Dirty Harry "do you feel lucky, Punk" line.
Stevie Richards vs. Mike Knox The pose is stricken. So is Stevie. Stevie throws himself around to make Knox looks strong. Knox wins with the deep-dish Downward Spiral.
GM Estrada jokingly offers Colin Delany a WWE contract and then sends out Big Show to squash him. Show walks out, calmly applies the cobra clutch, gets the submission, and twirls Colin in his SUPERCOOL sleeper-slam toss. Show didn't say a word on the mic and quickly dispatched Colin in a casual manner. The crowd loved him, and let us not forget how awesome Show was as ECW champ. Colin, to his discredit, didn't even try to throw a punch.
Next year's WM is in Houston, y'all.
Chavo/Shelton vs. Kane/Punk Gotta say: Punk was the weak link here as he appeared sloppy, but this was his third match in as many days. Kane was flying around in his short ring time, even hitting a running dropkick to a seated opponent. Chavo worked some nice surfboard variants on Punk. Punk pins Shelton after the G2S as Kane chases off Chavo.

How the hell did BRIAN HEBNER learn to beatbox like that??? I would love to see Spanky get the role of "loveable opening act" that Godfather and Rikishi once held, but with the writers' short attention spans, I'm not holding my breath.
