Ambulance Match
- Kane vs. John Cena

The ambulance is shown backing up into the arena next to the entranceway. Justin Roberts runs down the rules quickly before the match begins.

The entrances:

Kane is the first man to enter the arena, and it sounds to me like he gets a pretty favorable reaction from the crowd.

Cena is the next man to make his way out to the ring, and it’s a mixed reaction from the crowd, but it’s easily the biggest of the night.

The start:

Kane tries to send Cena into the ambulance, but Cena fights it off and hits Kane with a backboard, using it to smash Kane while he’s lying on the floor. Cena beats Kane around the entryway, but Kane fights back with chops to the throat and face. Kane sends Cena into the barricade hard. Kane tries to whip Cena into the ring steps, but it’s reversed, and Kane eats stairs. Cena sends things back into the ring. Kane fights off Cena, eventually mounting him and hitting him with right hand after right hand. Kane beats on Cena in the corner, sending him across the ring and charging after with a big clothesline.

Cena is able to stand up to his feet and fight off Kane, slamming him into the barricade. Kane and Cena fight toward the ambulance, and Cena sends Kane into the side of the ambulance.

Cena grabs the mic and says something before hitting Kane and asking if he can be in Booker’s fave five. Cena grabs a monitor and blasts Kane in the face.

Cena grabs the ring steps and picks them up, ramming them into Kane’s face, laying out the big red monster. Cena drops the set of steps he’s carrying, and picks up the bigger set of ring steps, setting it up next to the announce table. He picks up the smaller steps and uses them to hit Kane again before placing them on top of the bigger stairs next to the announce table.

Cena waits for Kane to get to his feet, and he shoulders the big man. Cena walks over to the steps, and walks up to the top. Kane fights off of his shoulders, and takes Cena down with a chokeslam through the announce table.

Kane brings the stretcher back to the ringside area and picks Cena up from under the table debris. Kane lays Cena on the gurney, and beats on him while he drags him toward the ambulance.

Kane brings Cena all the way to the ambulance on the gurney. He throws Cena in the ambulance and closes one of the doors, but Cena doesn’t allow Kane to close the other door. He jumps out and begins fighting back, slamming Kane up against the ambulance and slamming him head first into the ambulance before slamming him into the door of the ambulance. Cena climbs on top of the cab of the ambulance and taunts Kane to follow. Kane obliges and Cena and Kane fight on top of the ambulance.

Cena fights off a chokeslam, and shoulders Kane, hitting an AA from the top of the ambulance, through part of the set, which obviously had to have been gimmicked.

The finish:

Cena opens up the back of the ambulance, and picks Cena up out of the set. Cena puts Kane in the back of the ambulance and shuts the doors.

Winner: John Cena

The ambulance is shown heading through the arena and out to the streets as Cena celebrates in the ring. Cena points at the WrestleMania sign, and says he’s ready. He poses, to the chagrin of the fans, and the PPV ends with Cena’s smiling face.
