WWE.com: Christian def. Cody Rhodes (New Intercontinental Champion)

RALEIGH, N.C. – After his shocking return and impressive victory in the “People Power” Battle Royal earlier in the night, Christian seemingly had his sights set on Santino Marella’s United States Championship. However, after catching Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes doing some good, old-fashioned trash talking backstage to Eve where the second generation Superstar said he would “embarrass” Christian if the two went head-to-head, Captain Charisma decided to throw a bit of a curveball and challenge Rhodes for his beloved title instead.

Rhodes, who has held the title since his Extreme Rules victory over former WWE Superstar Big Show, was cocky right up to the moment the bell rang on his unexpected title defense. When his entrance music played, Rhodes made a final statement before taking on Christian, saying he is a better man than his opponent.

Christian was unfazed, however, and his sights were set squarely on Rhodes and his Intercontinental Title.

The younger Rhodes got off to a fast start against Christian, whose stamina was called into question after his long layoff and a hard-fought Battle Royal victory earlier in the night. Rhodes was relentless, slamming his opponent into the steel stairs at ringside and then hammering away at the former champion.

WWE.com: Christian Wins 20-Man Battle Royal

RALEIGH, N.C. – Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes and United States Champion Santino Marella kept a close eye on The Great Khali, The Miz and David Otunga as they battled in the 20-Man Over-the-Top Rope “People Power” Battle Royal that kicked off WWE Over the Limit – and with good reason.

The winner of the melee, which was announced by Executive Administrator Eve in an effort to end a running dispute between Rhodes and Santino about the prestige of their respective championships, would be granted a Title Match later in the night to challenge for his choice of either the Intercontinental or the U.S. Championship.

If the announcement of the Battle Royal itself and the promise of an unexpected title match weren’t exciting enough, the sound of Christian’s entrance music sent shockwaves through the WWE Universe members in attendance.

Christian had not appeared in WWE since the March 16 episode of SmackDown, where he delivered a special edition of “The Peep Show.” Before that, Christian was taken out by WWE Champion CM Punk on Raw SuperShow just days before Captain Charisma was to take part in the six-man tag match as a member of Team Johnny at WrestleMania XXVIII. That match against Punk ended in a no contest and Christian re-aggravated a prior neck injury thanks to an overlong Anaconda Vise by the champion.

Christian’s arrival sent the WWE Universe into a frenzy, and also left Rhodes and Santino clearly shaken as the two champions exchanged a worried glance at ringside when Captain Charisma made his entrance. When the bell rang, the ring was literally overflowing with Superstars as Drew McIntyre, Ezekiel Jackson, William Regal, The Usos and others all battled for a title opportunity.

We opened live with the Battle Royal. No opening, just live with the match. Santino Marella and Cody Rhodes are sitting ringside waiting to see which of them will be defending their title kater.

Order of elimination: Heath Slater, Michael McGuillicuty, JTG, Yoshi Tatsu (who took a suplex over the top to the floor and looked to have broken his ankle in the process), Ezekiel Jackson, Jey Uso, Drew McIntyre, Curt Hawkins, Tyder Reks, Jinder Mahal, Great Khali (tossed out by Miz, Titus O’Neal and Darren Young), Titus O’Neal, William Regal (LOTS of boos when he was tossed).

There was a nice exchange between The Miz and Alex Riley leading to Riley being tossed to the floor when he was caught climbing the ropes and then kicked off. Tyson Kidd unloaded with a lot of dropkicks and kicked David Otunga as he charged. Miz tossed Kidd but Kidd skinned the cat and tried to pull Miz over. Otunga kicked Kidd and sent him to the floor. The 90 seconds they put the spotlight on Kidd was great. No reason not to showcase him more.

The last three were Christian, Miz and David Otunga. Christian tried to fight them off but was overwhelmed. Otunga locked on a full nelson, leaving Christian open for Miz to nail him with running elbows.

They worked over Christian in the corner. Miz missed his running clothesline in the corner. Otunga went for a slam over the shoulder but Christian landed on his feet and tossed Otunga out.

We begin with the return of the Peep Show and the return of Christian. The fans appear to have forgotten that Christian hated the peeps because they cheer his return.

Christian brings out Teddy Long and he is joined by Aksana. Christian says that the stakes at Wrestlemania could not be higher because one of these men will have control of both shows. Christian says that he should try to do something unheard of, he is going to put his personal and business interests aside and he will give both men the opportunity to convince Christian to be a part of their team at Wrestlemania.

John Laurinaitis came out with David Otunga. Laurinaitis was speaking when Alberto Del Rio’s music hit and returned, driving a Rolls Royce into the Arena. Basically, they were trashing Teddy Long and saying he was corrupt. Del Rio said that Laurinaitis should be the permanent General Manager for both Raw and Smackdown.

Out came Mark Henry, who was suspended by Long. He said that Long was a bully and physically assaulted him. Henry said that just like the good guy that he is, he fell for it and was suspended for it. He told Laurinaitis that they’ve never seen eye to eye but Laurinaitis isn’t a bully and never threw his weight around or abused his power. He agreed Laurinaitis should be in power.

Christian then came out, making his return from his ankle injury, walking to the ring in street clothes. Christian said that he would have been competing for the World title tonight had it not been for Long. He sad that unlike Randy Orton faking a concussion, his injuries were legitimate and said that Long forcing him to work while hurt was an unsafe working environment. He asked the Board of Directors to make Laurinaitis the Smackdown GM.

Laurinaitis said he was touched and wanted everyone to take a photo, as the fans chanted for Triple H. They posed, although Henry didn’t want to do it.

Sheamus’ music plays and he comes out to show his support of all things Canada. Christian goes to the back for the Canadian Army reception.

We are back and it is time for more Slammy Awards to be presented. The next award is Game Changer of the Year and the presenter is Christian who is helped by two crutches and the ones the doctors gave him. Christian has an award not on the ballot and he wants to give the Courageous Moment of the Year award to himself for showing up despite having numerous injuries.

This award is to remember the one moment that changed the landscape of the WWE. Christian wants to know how he is not nominated for this award or how he is not Superstar of the Year. He won two World Championships this year. Christian blames everyone and their stupid faces for not showing enough outrage that he did not get one more match.

Christian is on his way to the ring and he has a crutch and his neck brace. He says two weeks ago on Smackdown he was brutally choke slammed by the Big Show for no reason. That led to a serious neck injury. Instead of taking his claims seriously, Teddy Long books him in a match against Sheamus last week. Christian says that he could have run away, but he stayed and fought Sheamus like a man. Christian says that he fought Sheamus all over Europe and to compensate for his neck, he severely injured his ankle.

Christian shows us a photo of his ankle and he says that he might be out of action for a few months. Christian does not know if he will be the same again. The fact is that he is no longer on the Survivor Series and he is off Team Barrett. Christian says that he will continue to support Team Barrett on to victory. Christian says that he is special and he inspires everyone to be better.

Christian says that normally he would be asking for ‘One More Match’ for the World Title, but now he would like just one more match…any match. That dream has been taken away by Teddy Long and his incompetence. Christian talks about the lack of respect from the WWE Universe. He wonders if they even care that he is injured. Christian asks the simpletons one more time if they care that he is injured. Christian wants to know if they care that he is walking around in constant pain. Christian says that he is a human being and he has feelings.

Christian tells Teddy Long that there will be severe consequences for what he did. Christian says that he has never been more embarrassed for a collection of people than what he is looking at tonight. Christian tells them all good riddance as he hobbles to the back.

Randy Orton makes his way to the ring. We see footage from last week’s street fight while Orton gets into the ring.

Orton looks around and then he says that when Teddy Long told him that he would be captaining his own Survivor Series team, he told Teddy that he doesn’t play well with others. Every team or group he has been a part of in WWE has imploded, usually with him doing something horrible to what once were his friends. Orton says that he might not be a leader, but he is not a follower. He has no problem being the team captain.

Orton says that he has no problem giving Cody Rhodes the beating of his life, again. He has no problem shutting up Christian’s mouth once and for all. He says that he doesn’t really know Jack Swagger that well and he doesn’t know Hunico at all, but he will have no problem to do what he must because they got in his way. Orton says that he especially has no problem.

Orton is interrupted by the man who he was going to talk about, Wade Barrett. Wade makes his way into the ring and he asks Orton what he has no problem with. Barrett says that Orton was going to say that he has no problem with Wade Barrett. Barrett says that Orton has a huge problem with him. The problems he gave Orton in the past will pale in comparison to what he is going to do to Orton at Survivor Series.

We are back and Big Show makes his way to the ring. We see the footage of the ring collapsing again. Show says that he would rather come out to fight than talk tonight. This is why you don’t see Frankenstein go on those long winded speeches any more. He isn’t a monster any more. He is a man with a bolt in his neck who likes to blab.

Show tells Mark Henry that they have unfinished business from Vengeance. If Mark doesn’t understand, maybe Mark can ask Alberto Del Rio. Show says that every show that he doesn’t get the match, he is going to knock Mark out until he gets his match. Christian interrupts Big Show and he makes his way to the ring. Show asks Christian if he can help him and if Christian is lost.

Christian says that he heard Mark’s clever ‘mama said knock you out’ line so he figured that was it so he came out for his match against Sheamus. Christian asks Show a quick question, but he wants to know why Show deserves ‘One More Match’ for the World Title. Show asks if that is a trick question.

Christian says that he doesn’t come out to ask for one more match to annoy people. He does it because he deserves it. Show comes out and he is threatening violence on people. Christian wonders if he could knock people out, but he is not a violent person. He says that he isn’t from the South. He is from Canada. People do things a little differently.

Teddy Long is in the ring and he has something to say. Teddy says that after what happened at Vengeance, the status of Mark Henry, Big Show, and the World Championship are in a state of flux. Despite the injuries suffered by both men, they are both here. Teddy promises to everyone that the future of the World Title will be addressed tonight.

Speaking of people who want the World Title, Christian makes his way to the ring. He tells Teddy that the future of the World Championship will be discussed right now. There is no doubt that what Mark and Show did at Vengeance was historic. By that he means that it is history. As far as he is concerned, Big Show had his chance and he blew it. That makes a big hole in the World Title picture.

Christian says that the void will be filled by the man who dominated this brand over the last five months. Teddy reminds Christian that the last time he saw Christian, he was getting his head kicked off his shoulders by Sheamus.

Christian says that he is resilient and then he tells Teddy to try to find someone more deserving than him.
