Cesaro controls Ryder early on, then Ryder turns it around. Ryder sends Cesaro to the outside, but Cesaro takes out Ryder's knee to go on the attack. Cesaro dumps Ryder ringside.
[ Commercial Break ]
Cesaro is still working the leg. Ryder with a surprise reverse DDT to gain momentum. Ryder flapjacks Cesaro and sets up a Broski Boot, but Cesaru catchs the leg, turns it into a single-leg airplane spin, then settles into a single-leg Boston Crab. Slick sequence. Ryder manages to get to the ropes. Ryder slips out of a suplex and lands a neckbreaker for two. Ryder calls for the Rough Ryder, but his hurt knee stops him.
Ryder wants a top-rope Rough Ryder, but Cesaro catches and looks for a powerbomb, but Ryder reverses with a huracarana followed by another Broski Boot. Cesaro barely catches a rope to survive. Cesaro drops Ryder across the ropes, slips out of the ring to land a big European Uppsecut, and then comes back into the ring for the Neutralizer and the win.
WINNER: Antonio Cesaro in 7:30. Slow start, but the final minute or two showed why Antonio Cesaro should have a great future and that Zack Ryder is more than an Internet gimmick. It's a shame that Ryder can't even main-event Superstars now, and it is telling that the U.S. champion is on Superstars a few weeks away from WrestleMania.
2 - BRODUS CLAY & TENSAI vs. MICHAEL MCGILLICUTTY & JTG - Tag Team match
For some reason, Tensai wore a coon skin cap to the ring and a replica of Brodus's track suit. To begin the match, JTG got in Tensai's face, which was a mistake. McGillicutty tags in, then Tensai manages a monkey flip. McGillicutty rolls under an elbow drop and Tensai is isolated in the corner. Tensai catches McGillicutty on a cross-body to draw a double tag.
Clay runs over JTG as Striker notes that Clay has dropped over 50 lbs. McGillicutty breaks up a tag, so the action breaks down. Tensai tells Clay to call his momma, so Clay does and JTG eats a double splash from the big men for the pin.
WINNERS: Clay & Tensai in 3:30. I hate to say it, but the team of Clay and Tensai manages to minimize their weaknesses and maximize their strengths well.
