The fifth annual WWE Cyber Sunday came to you from the U.S. Airways Center in Phoenix, AZ. Eight matches and a Divas Halloween Costume Contest were scheduled for the event.

Best Mic Work: The Honky Tonk Man

And In Other News…

-The opening match of the pay-per-view saw Rey Mysterio defeat Kane in a No Holds Barred Match (voted in over a Falls Count Anywhere Match and a 2-out-of-3 Falls Match.

-In the World Heavyweight Title Match that was overseen by the Special Referee Stone Cold Steve Austin (who got voted in over Randy Orton & Shawn Michaels), the two losing candidates that lost the voting interfered and was both taken out of the equation, but when the dust cleared, it was Batista who came out on top over Chris Jericho to win his fourth World Heavyweight Title.

The 805’th edition of RAW saw the fallout of Cyber Sunday in Tucson, AZ at the Tucson Convention Center. Confirmed for the night was Rey Mysterio Vs.
