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.

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.
