The first of two Vengeance World Championship matches saw John Cena defend the WWE Championship against Christian and Chris Jericho in a Triple Threat Match.

Early in the match, Tyson Tomko earned himself an ejection from ringside due to his constant interference. Christian's "problem solver" didn't go quietly. He even interjected in the championship match later on -- with the referee's back turned, Tomko ran from the locker room and flattened Cena. Christian quickly covered the champ. Cena somehow managed to get his shoulder up before the count of three.

From there, Cena mustered enough energy to hoist Christian for the FU, knocking Jericho out of the ring in the process. The rest was academic, as the referee counted Christian's shoulders down for the three count. John Cena had successfully defended the WWE Championship in his first RAW pay-per-view.
