D-Generation X gained serious momentum ahead of their submissions count anywhere match against Legacy at Breaking Point as they defeated a team of Chris Masters and WWE champion Randy Orton.
In an exciting main event contest, it was The Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels who eventually came up with the goods for DX, unleashing Sweet Chin Music on The Masterpiece and then locking in a decisive Figure Four Leg Lock.
With the match won, Triple H still endeavoured to make Orton submit to a Sharpshooter, but in the nick of time, Legacy came to ringside to rescue their mentor before he submitted, which culminated in a brawl with rivals DX.
The scrap continued outside the ring, and led backstage to the parking lot, where Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase made their escape.
Randy Orton, however, made his way back to the ring and was set upon by bitter rival John Cena. The Viper struggled at first to contain Cena's beat down but in the end it was the champion who made his mark, nailing Cena with a DDT and delivering a deadly RKO on a steel chair.
Earlier on Monday night RAW, Legacy member Rhodes had squared off against the number one contender for the WWE championship, Cena.
Before the match, Rhodes vowed that he would make Cena utter the words "I Quit", but in the end it was Rhodes who was left to eat his words as Cena took control of the match, wearing his opponent down, before eventually locking in his STF submission hold.
Just as Rhodes was about to submit to the STF, Orton intervened, though, causing a disqualification, which intensified his rivalry with Cena ahead of Breaking Point this Sunday.
Montel Vontavious Porter avenged his defeat from last week by securing victory over Chris Jericho, meanwhile, in what turned out to be a gripping encounter.
The Ballin' Superstar had several near pinfalls, but the all important one came when he countered Jericho's Codebreaker.
The other half of the unified tag team champions, The Big Show, also took part in not one but two body slam challenges, the first of which proved an easy task against fan favourite Santino Marella.
However the second was to end in defeat, as powerhouse Mark Henry bodyslammed the 485-pound giant to claim victory.
And finally, Hornswoggle left Chavo Guerrero reeling yet again as he distracted his rival whilst he was closing in on a much needed victory against high-flyer Evan Bourne.
