Cesaro seems to be easily overpowered and Heyman distracts Henry. Cesaro blindsides Henry and throws the announce table at Henry.

FINAL THOUGHTS: Good show tonight. I generally do not like arm wrestling contests in wrestling, but the segment was entertaining. I actually have to say Aksana and Naomi had match of the night. Sandow and Truth was mostly boring until the end. The Cesaro and Henry segments were awesome. Good show but not an amazing show.
