The opening match of the night was from ECW it featured the third match between Zack Ryder & “The Gold Standard” Shelton Benjamin, with Rosa Mendes accompanying Zack Ryder to the ring. Even though Rosa had a hand in costing Zack Ryder his last two matches against Shelton Benjamin, Rosa actually helped Ryder get the win this time! In the middle of the contest, Rosa received a call on her cell phone and tried to get the attention of Zack Ryder. Rosa then accidentally dropped the phone in the ring and crawled in to get it! Ryder went to tend to Rosa and tried to get her to leave the ring so the match could continue. Seeing an opportunity to once again capitalize on Ryder’s obsession with Rosa, Benjamin went to blind-side Ryder, but a scream by Rosa alerted Ryder and Ryder dodged the attack! Benjamin stopped himself before making contact with Rosa and Ryder took advantage by pulling Benjamin off of the middle turnbuckle and pinning “The Gold Standard” for the win! How will Shelton Benjamin respond to this controversial loss to Zack Ryder?
