WASHINGTON, D.C. -- When Saturday Night's Main Event rolled into the nation's capital, WWE's very best was on display. Though the Biggest Blockbuster of the Summer is only weeks away, SummerSlam competitors put it all on the line while Jenny McCarthy stepped into the ring to fight autism with Generation Rescue. More on McCarthy's appearance

The Biggest Brawl of the Summer

Though they'll be facing one another at SummerSlam, John Cena and Batista were forced to compete on the same tag team at Saturday Night's Main Event. The Chain Gang Commander and The Animal were joined by Cryme Tyme as they met the team of JBL, Kane & World Tag Team Champions Cody Rhodes & Ted DiBiase in a chaotic Eight-Man Tag Team Match. As World Heavyweight Champion CM Punk observed from ringside, the match devolved into an outright brawl that came to an end when JBL hit JTG with a Clothesline from Hell and pinned the Cryme Tyme member for the win.

Most Valuable Interference

When Edge squared off against Jeff Hardy, there was a lot on the Rated-R Superstar's mind, such as his rocky relationship with SmackDown General Manager Vickie Guerrero and his impending Hell in a Cell Match against a returning Undertaker at SummerSlam. And after his brutal attack on Mick Foley on SmackDown just 24 hours earlier, a reinvigorated Edge was ready to make a statement. Though there were several near falls throughout the match, neither Superstar could get a definitive upper-hand. But as Edge recuperated outside the ring from a missed spear, MVP emerged from the crowd and delivered a crushing kick to the head of Jeff Hardy. This was just the opening that the Ultimate Opportunist needed, as he rushed back into the ring and speared his opponent, gaining momentum for SummerSlam.

Behold the Destroyer

At 7 feet 3 inches and 420 pounds, it's no wonder that The Great Khali is one of the most destructive forces in WWE history. Though he will challenge WWE Champion Triple H for the title at SummerSlam, at Saturday Night's Main Event, it was Jimmy Yang Wang who attempted to stand up to the Punjabi Giant's assault. Yang's aerial maneuvers had proven effective against larger opponents in the past, but Khali was too much for him, swatting the high-flyer to the ground, and then delivering a thunderous Khali Bomb, followed by an authoritative pin.
