World Heavyweight Champion Edge & Kelly Kelly def. Drew McIntyre & Vickie Guerrero (WATCH | PHOTOS)
Vickie Guerrero took part in the second SmackDown Mixed Tag Team Match in three weeks, knowing that if she and her partner Drew McIntyre lost, SmackDown General Manager Theodore Long would fire her as the show's Official Consultant.
When Vickie stood in Edge's way as he was about to Spear McIntyre in the climatic moments of the match, Kelly Kelly took her down with The Master Manipulator's signature maneuver. The Ultimate Opportunist then followed suit, Spearing the "Chosen One" to seal his ex-wife's fate.
After a jubilant Teddy Long fired his Official Consultant, an hysterical Vickie pledged with everyone she could to keep her job, including Edge himself. This prompted the 11-time World Champion to lead the WWE Universe in another rendition of "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye." However, as The Rated-R Superstar watched Vickie walk off in disgrace, his WrestleMania No. 1 contender Alberto Del Rio attacked him, locking him in his vicious cross armbreaker.

Though Barrett launched an impressive offense against The World's Largest Athlete, the giant roared back, leaving his war-torn opponent outside the ring to pick up the victory by count-out. When The Corre reemerged after the match, Big Show blasted WWE Tag Team Champion Justin Gabriel with a steel chair and sent the intimidating faction fleeing from the ring.

While Michelle McCool was seated at the announce table, Rosa Mendes knocked her out of her chair, raising the wrath of the flawless Diva.

Although Layla and Michelle walked out together, the circumstances surrounding the English-born Diva's defeat brought noticeable friction between Team Lay-Cool.
Rey Mysterio def. Kane (WATCH | PHOTOS)
After suffering the full force of Kane's sadistic brutality, Rey Mysterio charged back to dial-up the 619 on his frightening foe. The Devil's Favorite Demon hauled the masked Superstar's follow-up attack, catching his prey in mid-air. But, before he could capitalize, Mysterio used his incredible athletic prowess to drop The Big Red Monster to the canvas for the quick pin.
After the match, WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes made a surprise journey to the ring, apologizing to Mysterio for his son Cody Rhodes' poor attitude and for his statements blaming the masked Superstar for his injury. When he pushed Cody to apologize as well, the younger Rhodes shook his adversary's hand. However, seconds later, while the senior Rhodes was shaking The Ultimate Underdog's hand, his son attacked, making it clear that the Rhodes family had been scheming together for revenge. The once-"Dashing" Superstar proceeded to deliver a devastating assault on The Master of the 619 and ripped off his mask off. (WATCH)
