Sheamus and Neville kick things off for their respective teams. Neville establishes control over Sheamus and tags in Cesaro. Cesaro and Neville hit a wicked double team move. Stardust and The Ascension are shown in the crowd as “The Stardust Section,” to screw with Cesaro and his “Cesaro Section.”
Cesaro finally gets the hot tag after some back and forth action and completely stole the show. He debuted some new moves and dusted off some classics, setting Neville up for the Red Arrow and the 1-2-3.
Winners: Dolph Ziggler, Cesaro & Neville

U.S. Open Challenge
– John Cena (c) vs. Alberto Del Rio
From there, John Cena’s music hits and as promised, he comes out with his U.S. Open Challenge to kick off this year’s Hell In A Cell pay-per-view. The fans sing “John Cena-sucks!” to the tune of his theme as he makes his way out.
Cena asks who it’s gonna be and out comes Zeb Colter on a motor scooter. He grabs a mic and tells them to cut the music. Colter says it’s time for people of different backgrounds and countries to come together, and it’s time for Cena to lose his U.S. title. Colter introduces Cena to his opponent — Alberto Del Rio.
The crowd exploded for Del Rio and did “Welcome Back!” chants. After a solid back-and-forth match, Del Rio caught Cena with a super kick while Cena was on his knees. Del Rio then got the 1-2-3 to become the new U.S. champ.
Winner and NEW U.S. Champion: Alberto Del Rio
