CM Punk defeated newly-anointed World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio via count-out in Grand Rapids, Michigan on his first Monday night appearance since April - but was soon seeing stars courtesy of The Beast Incarnate.
Brock Lesnar - who beat Triple H in a Steel Cage Match at Extreme Rules in May - strode to the ring with a smirk on his face, before levelling Punk with his patented F-5 finishing manoeuvre and leaving the Second City Saint writhing in pain.
Elsewhere, Christian, out of action since last summer, made a successful return to the ring by pinning ex-Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett - but a tearful departure proved to be nothing but a cunning ruse.
Mark Henry interrupted John Cena's WWE Championship address to announce that he was hanging up his boots and proceeded to bid a weepy goodbye to the WWE Universe.
However, when Cena embraced the World's Strongest Man, he was quickly desecrated by a World's Strongest Slam before Henry announced his intention to rip the Cenation Leader's title from him - something he will now get the chance to do at July's Money in the Bank pay-per-view.
Randy Orton defeated Daniel Bryan, meanwhile, when a WWE doctor declared the latter could not continue after he had mistimed a suicide dive and crashed into the barricade.
Plus, Kane's hopes of tearing the United States Championship from Dean Ambrose were dashed when he was struck by The Shield's triple powerbomb shortly after the match had got underway.
Elsewhere, Chris Jericho and new Intercontinental Champion Curtis Axel recorded victories over Heath Slater and Sin Cara respectively, Team Rhodes Scholars vanquished Sheamus in a handicap match, and Antonio Cesaro knocked off William Regal.
But it was a sour night for Divas Champion AJ Lee, who was given a dressing down from Stephanie McMahon and assaulted by Kaitlyn, the grappler she wrestled her title from at Payback on Sunday night.
