It was truly a night of champions in the first match on Raw in Montreal as WWE Tag Team Champions Kofi Kingston & R-Truth went head-to-head with Intercontinental Champion The Miz and United States Champion Antonio Cesaro, who brought his usual bilingual swagger to the proceedings as he recited "prestige" in five languages on his way to the ring.

However, it was Kofi & Truth who came out guns blazing in Montreal, sending both Miz and Cesaro over the ropes with their unique, daredevil-style offense and driving their mouthy opponents back before Miz and Cesaro were able to get rolling.

The challengers rallied, though, with Miz sending Truth off the apron and into the announce table before Cesaro tagged in and mauled the Tag Team Champion with a vicious sequence of technical attacks. (Aksana, it should be noted, posed on the apron for the entirety of Cesaro's attack on Truth.) Miz was next in, pounding Truth with an axe handle strike from the top rope before Truth rallied enough to deck Miz with a kick to the head.

With Miz dazed and Truth spent, Kofi and Cesaro were next to tag in, and Kingston wasted no time in attempting to put the contest away. The Boom Squad General felled Cesaro with the Boom Drop and, while Miz was able to cut him off before Trouble in Paradise, Kofi rallied and kicked out of a vicious roll-up from Cesaro. He then executed an acrobatic duck under the ex-rugby hooligan's outstretched arm before connecting with Trouble in Paradise to earn the incumbent champions their latest victory.
