Match 1. Damien Sandow vs. Cody Rhodes   WWE Intercontinental Championship
Sandow was doing everything he could to make this a quick match. He was targeting the legs of Rhodes. He even had put his feet on the ropes for pins. Sandow landed his Russian leg sweep, but Cody kicked out and hit Cross Rhodes to regain the title.

Match 2. Fandango vs. Dolph Ziggler   WWE United States Championship
Ziggler pinned the champ last week on Raw, so he gets a title shot here. Ziggler hit Fandango with a corner splash and a snap slam. He then hit a falling neck breaker and a picture-perfect dropkick. Fandango tried making a comeback, but Ziggler landed a sit-out face buster, busting Fandango open in the process and won.

Match 3. AJ Lee vs. Brie Bella   WWE Divas Championship
Three title matches, three title changes. Brie landed a snapmare and kicked AJ right in the face. Brie then hit a jumping headlock takedown. AJ kicked out and caught Brie with a spinning heel kick. AJ was in control, after hitting a tornado head scissors. Brie came back with a sit-out face buster and won.

Match 4. Daniel Bryan vs. Randy Orton
Orton viciously tossed Bryan into the corner and hit him with a DDT. Orton then took Bryan down with a Lou Thesz Press. After getting a one count, Bryan connected with his kicks to the chest and head. He locked in the Yes Lock, but Orton grabbed the rope. Bryan landed a half nelson suplex and won.

Match 5. The United Kingdom vs. The Usos   WWE Tag Team Championship
With this being a tornado tag match, The Usos may have the upper hand. Jey hit Drew with a hurricanrana, but Drew came back with a powerslam. Barrett and Jey were going back and forth with steel step shots. Drew hit Jimmy with the Future Shock. Barrett busted Jey open. He then hit the Winds of Change a minute later to win. Barrett and McIntyre are the first to retain their titles tonight.

Match 6. Hell in a Cell - CM Punk vs. John Cena   WWE Championship
Cena and Punk went right at each other at the beginning of the match. Cena tossed Punk out of the ring and into the cell. He later landed a super back drop. After a snapmare, Cena busted Punk open with a falling fist drop. Punk landed a superplex and the GTS. Cena kicked out and got Punk in a roll up. Punk countered and got the win.

Main Event. Hell in a Cell - Jack Swagger vs. Antonio Cesaro   World Heavyweight Championship
This is it. Weeks of Cesaro trying to get his hands on Swaggers comes to this. Cesaro stomped on the legs on Swagger. He then hit a nice spine buster. He hit another spine buster a minute later. On the outside, Swagger tossed Cesaro into the steel steps and the cell. Cesaro then hit the Neutralizer. Swagger busted Cesaro open by slamming his head against the steel post. He then hit the gutwrench powerbomb to retain.

Recap: A very entertaining PPV. The mid-card matches were fast-paced while the two Cell matches were brutal. I never would have guessed Swagger and Cesaro would main event a PPV.
