However, just when it looked like the number one contender to World Heavyweight Champion Kane was going to defeat Del Rio, The Nexus invaded SmackDown, with David Otunga, Justin Gabriel, Heath Slater, Michael McGillicutty and Husky Harris all attacking.
But after Otunga declared The Nexus was taking over SmackDown, Big Show, Rey Mysterio and Kane joined Edge in helping drive off Wade Barrett’s faction.
After The Nexus threatened to take over SmackDown at the start of the night, the blue brand’s Superstars defended their turf in the biggest 10-Man Tag Team Match in SmackDown history.
Despite Alberto Del Rio inexplicably walking away from the match, and obvious differences amongst themselves, the SmackDown superstars put their rivalries aside and were able to defeatThe Nexus.
In the closing moments of the main event, The Rated-R Superstar avoided a chokeslam from his own teammate – World Heavyweight Champion Kane – then speared both The Big Red Machine and David Otunga to get the win for his team.
Struggle
Former tag team champions, Cody Rhodes and Drew McIntyre tangled with each other and MVP for a chance to become the new Number one contender to the Intercontinental Championship.
After a hard-fought struggle, MVP claimed victory by pinning McIntyre. Next week, in Manchester, England, MVP will face Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler in a title match on Friday Night SmackDown.
