Prior to the WWE Title Match, J.R. revealed that Jeff Hardy would NOT be competing in the WWE Title Match and that the match would be one-on-one between Triple H and Vladimir Kozlov. After a while of back and forth action, Triple H hit the Pedigree on Kozlov, but both Triple H and Kozlov were down in the ring. Vickie Guerrero then emerged and announced that the match will still be a Triple Threat because "he" is here. The "he" turned out to not be Jeff Hardy, but a returning Edge (who had been out of action since being chokeslammed to "hell" by The Undertaker during Hell in a Cell at SummerSlam) made his way to the ring and speared Triple H. Before Edge could pin Triple H, Jeff Hardy ran down and assaulted Edge. Jeff grabbed a steel chair and swung for Edge, but Edge ducked and Jeff hit Triple H. Jeff then hit Kozlov, but was speared by Edge. Edge made the pinfall on Triple H to win the title. Thus confirming that the "Jeff being unconcious" thing was an angle.

Speaking of the WWE Title Match, while it was still Triple H Vs. Vladimir Kozlov, there were several chants of "Boring", "TNA", and "We Want Hardy".

Also, despite being in his "hometown", John Cena (who actually lives in nearby West Newbury, MA) got several boos before and during the match.
