Detailed Results

The opening match of the night was from RAW and it seen former Intercontinental Champion Santino Marella pick up a win over The Brian Kendrick.

From SmackDown, "The Guru of Greatness" John Morrison was in action, picking up a win over Charlie Haas.

From ECW, "The So-Cal Surfer" Tyler Reks made his in-ring debut, but in a losing effort to "The Long Island Loudmouth" Zack Ryder. How will Reks respond to losing his debut match?

Then it was time for the main event from SmackDown as World Heavyweight Champion CM Punk would square off with former World Champion and one-half of the new Unified Tag Team Champions, Edge, in a non-title bout. The end of the match came after Edge intentionally raked the already injured eye of CM Punk. Following this questionable tactic from "The Ultimate Opportunist", CM Punk signaled to the referee that he wanted the match to stop, telling the official that he was unable to see. The referee stopped the match and Edge picked up the win via forfeit. After the match had concluded, the World Heavyweight Champion stated that "if I can’t see, I can’t compete" and he would be more than happy to give Edge a rematch after he recovers from the injury. Regardless of what surrounded the win, Edge still defeated the World Heavyweight Champion by forfeit; will this earn Edge a future shot at CM Punk and the World Heavyweight Title? What will go down on Friday Night SmackDown when World Heavyweight Champion CM Punk is forced to team with his disgruntled former #1 Contender, Jeff Hardy, in a non-title match against the new Unified Tag Team Champions Edge & Chris Jericho? Will the team of CM Punk & Jeff Hardy be able to keep it together long enough to defeat the tag champions or will two of the WWE’s most opportunistic Superstars pick up the win over the dysfunctional team? What is the status of CM Punk’s eye injury and how will it affect his performance in the tag match?
