Detailed Results

The opening match of the night was from SmackDown and it saw Cryme Tyme defeat The Hart Dynasty in the "rubber match" of their rivalry. However, "The Bling Bling Brothers" would not have been able to get the win had it not been for the help of their good friend, Eve Torres. Eve prevented Natalya from interfering in the match, which gave Cryme Tyme the opportunity to win the match. Is this the end of the rivalry between these two teams or has it just begun?

Intercontinental Champion Rey Mysterio made a special appearance on WWE Superstars and "The Master of the 619" reminded everyone of his successful title defense against Chris Jericho on last week’s SmackDown. Rey stated that he "enjoyed" defeating Jericho, but his celebration was short-lived as he was attacked and laid out by Dolph Ziggler, who Rey referred to as a "coward". This motivated Dolph Ziggler to interrupt and told Rey that Rey will never forget the name Dolph Ziggler after his attack last week. Rey responds by calling Dolph a "peacock" and telling the egotistical Superstar that he has defeated "better" men than Dolph. Rey then "invites" Ziggler to come into the ring, but Ziggler refuses, saying that he will fight Rey on "his terms". Dolph then officially lays down the gauntlet and challenges Rey Mysterio to a match for the Intercontinental Championship at Night of Champions. Never one to back away from a fight, Rey accepted the challenge! Rey then vowed to prove that Ziggler is not on his "level" come Night of Champions. Rey then, once again, challenges Dolph to come into the ring. This time, "The Name Dropper" approaches the ring, but decides to back away. Rey exits the ring and pursues Ziggler! Dolph escapes Rey momentarily by rushing into the ring, however the quick Rey Mysterio caught Dolph and got some shots in before Ziggler made his hasty escape, running from the Intercontinental Champion. What will happen when these two square off at Night of Champions with the Intercontinental Championship on the line? Will Dolph Ziggler take a leap in his career and take the Intercontinental Title from the veteran champion, Rey Mysterio or will Rey prove that Dolph is not on his level by defeating "The Name Dropper" in Philadelphia?

After losing to a Bella last week on ECW, "The Sinister Sibling" Katie Lea Burchill squared off with Brie Bella in ECW’s contribution to Superstars. While it was supposed to be Brie Bella in the match, the Bella Twins once again used their "trick" to get the advantage and win the match. During the match, Brie Bella was thrown to the outside of the ring. With the referee’s attention on Katie Lea Burchill, Nikki laid down beside her twin sister so that the referee would not be able to determine which Bella was which. Then both Bellas entered the ring and the referee made the call and sent a Bella out of the ring; however, the Bella he sent out was Brie. In the ring, Nikki then rolled up Katie Lea Burchill to win the match for her twin sister!

Then it was time for the main event, from RAW, as United States Champion Kofi Kingston stepped up to the challenging task of combating "The World’s Largest Athlete" Big Show in a non-title match. Kofi put up a valiant effort, but Big Show was just too much for Kofi to handle as Big Show planted the United States Champion with a chokeslam and picked up the win. With Night of Champions approaching, has Big Show punched his ticket to be Kofi’s opposition for the United States Championship? What about Evan Bourne? The high-flyer also has a non-title victory over the champion. Who will Kofi face at Night of Champions and can he leave with the prestigious United States Championship?
