Team Hell No to the ring. They say they will defend their titles at the Rumble.....then Kane says he'll win the Rumble. Bryan disagrees. Big Show comes out. Tells them to leave. Rhodes Scholars come out and say Hell No is underestimating them. Call me psychic, but I think Del Rio is gonna come out and we will end up with a six man tag match tonight.
And out come ADR and Ricardo Rodriguez.
Where is Book.....ok...I didn't even finish typing that. Booker is out to make it official. Six man match tonight. It's an elimination match.
Sheamus vs. Wade Barrett. Good match.
Sheamus wins with the brogue kick.
Khali again? No. It's a Natalya match. Natalya vs. Rosa. Natalya wins.
CM Punk talks about the stipulation. Calls out the Shield. They come out. Says they need to stay out of his business....he never asked for their help....he never needed their help. Says if they want justice, their paths never need to cross again.
The Shield leave without doing or saying anything.
Punk says that's how he takes care of business. He gets cocky.
Rock comes out and delivers a 100% serious promo that had great intensity. And was a perfect promo to lead into the match at the Rumble.
Rock walked out.
I'm guessing the next part was for the live crowd. Punk ripped down Sacramento and said Rock walked away. Rock came back our. Punk said just bring it. Rock came down. They fight. Rock bottom.
Up next. Orton vs. Drew Mac. He ends up killing all if 3mb. I think Orton won by dq.
Antonio Cesaro comes out for commentary.
Prime Time Players come out. Darren Young vs. The Miz.
Miz wins with the Figure Four.
Main Event time.
Del Rio out first. Then Hell No.
Rhodes Scholars and the Big Show.
Del Rio is a lot of fun to watch as a baby face.
Sandow, first eliminated by Kane.
Kane counted out.
Daniel Bryan got eliminated.
Last two...Alberto and big show.
Del Rio won.

Birmingham’s “Rockstar Spud” is the newest global wrestling sensation after winning hit Challenge TV reality show TNA Wrestling: British Boot Camp.
Spud overcame rivals The Blossom Twins and Marty Scurll in the Challenge Late Zone contest, which was judged by TNA Wrestling President Dixie Carter and ‘The Immortal’ Hulk Hogan. The foursome were mentored by British wrestling legend Rollerball Rocco.
Spud’s prize is a full-time contract with TNA IMPACT WRESTLING and the chance to step into the ring alongside his boyhood hero Hulk Hogan, Olympic gold medallist Kurt Angle, ‘The Icon’ Sting and many more of the world’s most recognisable wrestlers.
TNA IMPACT WRESTLING is broadcast every Sunday night at 9pm on Challenge TV in the UK and Ireland, as well as more than 120 other countries.
Spud said: “This is a dream come true. For anyone out there who tells you that you can't, I just proved that you CAN!
“I now can't wait to hit the Impact Zone and mix it up with the best professional wrestlers in the world. I promise I'll make everyone at home in the UK proud. But I can't promise I'll keep my mouth shut while doing it.”
TNA Wrestling President Dixie Carter said: “This was a very difficult decision to make. All four Boot Camp contestants have great talent and potential and grew as both wrestlers and people throughout the series.
“They all wanted to win so badly and it took us a very long time to decide. In the end, Rockstar Spud's character and charisma tipped the balance. But all four are more than ready to be stars. It just goes to show what amazing talent there is to be discovered in the UK.”
TNA Wrestling: British Boot Camp’s Executive Producer Jeremy Borash added: “In the series, Rockstar Spud evolved before our very eyes and is a textbook example of not judging a book by it's cover. In the beginning of the series, most did not give him a chance. Yet, by the end he had won over Rollerball Rocco, Hulk Hogan, Dixie Carter and our viewers.”
Rockstar Spud, Marty Scurll and The Blossom Twins are all currently appearing on the TNA Road To Lockdown Tour of the UK and Ireland.
TNA Wrestling: British Boot Camp has been a ratings hit for Challenge TV and attracted media coverage from the BBC, ITV, Sky One, Sky News, The Sun, Daily Star, Daily Express, Daily Mirror, Guardian, Metro, TalkSPORT Radio and Cosmopolitan. Rockstar Spud is also a blogger for The Huffington Post.
