Drew McIntyre vs. Yoshi Tatsu.  It’s Raw vs. Smackdown for no apparent reason.  McIntyre is being a dick and not taking Yoshi seriously.  They lock up.  McIntyre pushes Yoshi to the corner and pulls his hair.  They lock up again.  McIntyre grabs a side headlock, then hits a shoulder block.  That happens in every match ever.  They lock up a third time.  Yoshi lands some chops.  McIntyre beats on Yoshi in the corner.  Yoshi responds in kind.  Yoshi lands a head kick for 2.  McIntyre ducks another head kick and bails.  Yoshi follows and they brawl outside.  McIntyre gives Yoshi a shoulder breaker onto the apron!  That’s kind of awesome.  Insta-commercials.  McIntyre works Yoshi’s injured shoulder.  Yoshi fights out and gets a flying crucifix hold for 2!  McIntyre drops Kofi with a boot, then gets a single leg jackknife hold for 2.  Punk name drops Chono, Misawa, and Jumbo.  Awesome.  McIntyre works the shoulder and heels it up.  McIntyre hits an arm breaker for 2.  Yoshi dropkicks McIntyre out of the ring.  McIntyre comes back in and accidentally spears the post when Yoshi side steps him.  Yoshi lands some chops and kicks.  Yoshi lands a spin kick.  Cover, but McIntyre gets the ropes.  McIntyre sends Yoshi to the apron.  Yoshi lands a head kick, then goes up top.  McIntyre avoids the diving spin kick and h its the Future Shock for the pin (9:38 shown).  Awesome little TV match.  I loved this.

Good show this week.  I loved the main event!  There’s a good chance that that will be the best WWE TV match this week.
