John Cena is in his locker room.  R-Truth comes in.  They bicker.  Truth offers to interfere in the match and attack Randy Orton to help Barrett win, which would mean Cena could keep his job “guilt free.”  Cena couldn’t live with that, so he’s going to call it down the middle.  Truth says he’ll believe it when he sees it.

WrestleMania XXVII!

John Cena is still in his locker room.  Wade Barrett comes in and mentions that this was the site of the original Nexus attack on Cena.  They have a nice chat about old times and times to come.  Cena says he knows exactly what he’s doing.

Miami.

Orton/Barrett/Cena hype video.  Mostly about Cena.

WWE Championship Match: Randy Orton (c) vs. Wade Barrett.  John Cena is the referee.  If Barrett wins the title, Cena is free from Nexus.  If Barrett doesn’t win, Cena is fired.  They lock up like two bulls locking horns.  Orton backs Barrett into the corner and breaks.  Orton hits a shoulder block.  Orton takes Barrett down with a side headlock.  Usually that sequence goes in the opposite order.  They take turns beating each other up.  Cena calls it right down the middle and enforces the rules, alternately distracting both participants and allowing the opponent to get the advantage.  They brawl outside.  Barrett whips Orton into the steps.  Back inside, cover gets 2.  They go back and forth.  Barrett hits a knee lift and a basement kick for 2.  Barrett applies a rear chin lock.  Orton escapes.  They brawl.  Orton gets the better of it and clotheslines Barrett out of the ring.  Barrett sends Orton into the post.  Orton catches Barrett coming back in.  Barrett gouges Orton’s eyes.  Orton hits the 3.0 for 2.  Barrett lands a boot and a clothesline.  Barrett hits a diving elbow drop for 2.  Barrett argues with Cena.  Barrett hits a pumphandle slam for 2.  Barrett hits a sidewalk slam for 2.  Barrett is starting to get pissed.  He argues with Cena about the count again.  Orton hits the DDT OF MURDER and humps the mat.  Barrett bails.  Orton clotheslines Barrett on the outside.  Barrett cuts Orton off coming back inside and hits the Wasteland.  Orton grabs the bottom rope to break the count at 2.  Barrett is really pissed now.  Barrett shoves Cena.  Cena shoves Barrett into the RKO and counts the pin for Orton in 15:16.  Slow, boring match.  Striker immediately yells “CENA’S FREE!”  Cole corrects him and says that Cena is fired.  Cena is the dumbest babyface ever.  Nexus run in.  Cena and Orton clean house.  Cena presents Orton with the belt and they hug, despite never being friends.  Orton leaves.  Cena takes off his various armbands.  He hugs Michael Cole of all people, then the sign guy and some other guy, then goes out into the crowd, then leaves.

This show was really good for the first half, then fell off a cliff.  Cena proved himself to be the dumbest babyface this side of Sting, but I guess it doesn’t matter since nobody believes retirement stipulations.
