WWE News: Fatal Four-Way PPV News & Notes - three new champions, bonus matches, Vince McMahon appearance

Jun 20, 2010 - 10:21:12 PM


By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

The following are key news and notes from tonight's WWE Fatal Four-Way PPV featuring three title changes, two champions retaining titles, and bonus matches and appearances added to the PPV.

-- Sheamus is the new WWE champion after capturing the WWE Title from incumbent champion John Cena. Also involved in the four-way PPV main event were Randy Orton and Edge.

The NXT Season One Rookies made a run-in to KO Cena, allowing Sheamus to score a quick pin for the title. The PPV then went off the air with the Rookies chasing off Sheamus while Cena, Orton, and Edge were shown KO'ed in and out of the ring.

-- Rey Mysterio is the new WWE World Hvt. champion after capturing the World Hvt. Title from incumbent champion Jack Swagger. Also involved in the four-way title match were C.M. Punk and Big Show. Kane made a run-in prior to the finish.

-- Alicia Fox is the new WWE Divas champion. Fox pinned Maryse while incumbent champion Eve Torres was on the outside during a four-way match also involving Gail Kim.

-- U.S. champion The Miz retained the United States Title over R-Truth in a singles match.

-- Intercontinental champion Kofi Kingston retained the IC Title over Drew McIntyre in the opening match after a run-in by Matt Hardy.

-- Chris Jericho vs. Evan Bourne was added to the PPV as a bonus match. Bourne won clean over Jericho in a very strong 12-minute match.

-- Also added to the PPV was Hart Dynasty vs. the Usos in a six-person tag match. Hart Dynasty went over, with Natalya scoring a pin on Tamina.

-- WWE CEO Vince McMahon started the PPV announcing that Raw GM Bret Hart would not be at the PPV. McMahon continued the NXT Invasion storyline from Monday's Raw by saying he would be meeting with Hart on his future as Raw GM.
