He was interrupted by Kane who said that he would write the last chapter on Edge’s story by breaking him. Edge said that there was not point of wasting time, and they should have a fight right then and there.

Match 5: John Cena v. Dolph Ziggler & Vicki Guerrero
Cena took Ziggler down with a headlock, as Dolph quickly tried to fight back by rolling Cena back for a pin attempt. Cena kicked out, and with both men on their feet, Cena was able to take Ziggler down and lock in a headlock on him. When Dolph made it back to his feet, Cena backed him into the corner, but he was able to fire off a cheap shot knocking Cena back. This gave Ziggler the upper hand in the match and Ziggler focused his attack on Cena. He tagged in Vicki and she came in, and while propping herself on the ropes stood on Cena’s head. Dolph tagged himself back in and continued to assault Cena, planting him down with a spinning slam and dropping a series of elbows on him. He then backed Cena into a corner, hitting him with a series of punches, but as Ziggler whipped Cena into the opposite corner, Cena reversed, taking Ziggler down and attempting an unsuccessful pin fall. Cena picked up Ziggler on his shoulders for an Attitude Adjustment, but Ziggler reversed, hitting Cena with a DDT. Ziggler continued his attack on Cena, putting him in the ropes where Vicki kicked him in the head. Ziggler knocked Cena to the outside and followed him out. Cena was able to reverse Ziggler’s attack and threw him back in the ring, where a resilient Ziggler hit Cena with a drop kick as he reentered the ring. Ziggler tried a supplex on Cena, but Cena blocked it and suplexed Ziggler instead. Both men slowly made it to their feet as Ziggler started throwing punches again, with Cena retaliating. Cena attempted a shoulder block on Ziggler, but Ziggler moved out of the way, sending Cena flying to the outside of the ring. Cena surprised Ziggler with a side slam, but was distracted by Vicki, allowing Ziggler to take advantage again. Ziggler was setting up for a move on Cena when Vicki tagged herself in, and after taunting a fallen Cena, attempted a body splash which she missed. She tagged Ziggler back in, and he went after Cena soon to be propped on Cena’s shoulders for the Attitude Adjustment. Ziggler once again countered, hitting Cena with the rocker dropper, and attempting a pin, but Cena kicked out. As Ziggler tried to size up Cena again, Cena countered his charge by locking Ziggler down with an STF attempt, but was interrupted when Vicki came into the ring and got in Cena’s face. Cena listened to Vicki mouth off, and then planted a huge kiss on her. As a stunned Vicki was sent reeling, Ziggler charged Cena and got hoisted up on Cena’s shoulders, hit with the Attitude Adjustment, and pinned. Vicki got in Cena’s face again, and he picked her up on his shoulders to perform another Attitude Adjustment with the crowd loudly encouraging him to do so. Out of the blue, CM Punk, who attacked Cena the previous night on RAW, slid into the ring with a chair and assaulted Cena with it, and then walked out. A stunned Cena stayed in the ring, attempting to shake off the attack.
Winner: John Cena
