WWE United States Championship Match
- Jack Swagger w/Vickie Guerrero (c) vs. Justin Gabriel w/Hornswoggle

The entrances:

Jack Swagger is the first man to make his way to the ring with Vickie Guerrero in tow, of course. Swagger doesn’t get a very favorable reaction, and again these two men have a hard act to follow here.

Justin Gabriel is out next with Hornswoggle, and he gets a pretty decent reaction from the crowd in the arena.

The start:

The bell rings, and Swagger wastes no time taking Gabriel down to the mat. Swagger beats on Gabriel in the corner, and continues the assault, putting Gabriel down in a powerbomb after a hurricanrana attempt. Swagger delivers a Swagger bomb from the second rope before executing a couple of push ups on the back of Gabriel.

Mid-match notes:

Swagger snap mares Justin over and ties his arms up behind his head. Gabriel is able to fight to his feet and drop Swagger with a reverse DDT drop. Gabriel hits Swagger with a big kick in the corner, then hits a nice springboard cross body from the apron for a two count.

Gabriel hits Swagger with a big kick that sends him to the outside. Gabriel follows with a spinning plancha over the top to take out Swagger. Gabriel kicks at Swagger on the outside, wearing away his chest. Swagger catches Gabriel’s leg and throws it against the ring post hard.

The finish:

Swagger sends things back into the ring and locks in the ankle lock, forcing Gabriel to tap out.

WINNER AND STILL US Champion: Jack Swagger

The announce team hype that tomorrow night, The Undertaker will be on Raw to continue his campaign for a match with Triple H at Wrestlemania. They then turn their attention to the next match, and note that one of the participants won't be at Raw tomorrow night, as they'll be leaving the arena tonight in an ambulance. This sends us into a video package that highlights the events over the past few weeks that have led up to Cena/Kane in an ambulance match tonight.
