Alex is out first and he gets a solid reaction from the fans. R-Truth comes out next, also receiving a nice pop from the crowd. The two are just about ready to fight, but are interrupted by Shelton Benjamin.
Shelton: Listen A-Ry, you have been successful over the past few weeks, but I'm still not too impressed. I don't like you and I sure as hell don't respect you. If you really want me to give you respect, then stop fighting worthless punks like Truth and step in the ring with a real wrestler.
Truth laughs sarcastically before turning his attention back to Riley. The ref calls for the bell and the match begins. Alex quickly goes on the assault, hitting a spear followed up with repeated blows. Truth escapes and gets to his feet, but is sent out the ring by a dropkick from Alex. Riley then heads to the outside and continues his attack. Truth gets up near the announce table, but is thrown right over the top of it, nearly hitting JR in the process. Shelton and Riley have a momentary stare down, before Riley turns his attention towards Truth. However, R-Truth uses the distraction as an advantage, connecting with a leaping calf kick on Riley. Truth then lifts Riley up and tosses him back into the ring. Alex uses the ropes to get up, but is quickly hit with Truth Conviction. The rapping superstar goes for the pin. 1...2...Kick Out!
Shelton stares in anticipation as the match continues. Truth goes for Truth or Consequences, but Riley slips out. Alex then connects with a back suplex, causing Truth's neck to smack hard into the canvas. Riley then grabs Truth and locks in a knee lock (A.K.A. Brock Lock). Truth is hopeless as he hangs upside down in pain. However, R-Truth grabs Riley's leg and turns the tables. Alex smacks face first into the mat as Truth locks in the ankle lock. Truth is ruthless as Riley screams in pain. It seems as though he is seconds away from tapping, but grabs the ropes just in time. Truth can't believe it, but goes back to work.
Truth goes for Truth Axe, but Riley catches him and nails an electric chair drop. Alex then goes for the cover. 1...2...Kick Out!
Riley can't believe it isn't over yet, but has no choice other than to continue. He lifts Truth up and hits a Michinoku Driver. Truth seems just about finished as he struggles to stand. However, he is able to dodge a clothesline and hit "Little Jimmy" out of nowhere! He goes for the pin. 1...2...Kick Out!
Benjamin is completely shocked on the outside, showing obvious frustration. Truth shows the same expression as he gets back up. R-Truth then goes for a reverse STO, but Alex elbows his way out of it. Riley then follows it up with a huge spine buster. He makes the cover. 1...2...Kick Out!
Alex looks to go high risk as he heads to the top rope. When Truth gets to his feet, Riley goes for a missile dropkick. He connects and goes for another pin. 1...2...Kick Out!
Riley is in complete disbelief! He argues with the ref for a few moments, but eventually gives up and differs back to the match. He goes for a belly to belly suplex and hits it. When Truth gets back up, Riley is able to connect with a huge hip toss into a neckbreaker! He goes for the pin. 1...2...Kick Out!
Riley is beginning to show frustration as he angrily pounds the canvas with his fists. He then gets to his feet and waits for Truth to stand. When Truth gets to his feet, Riley connects with a lifting DDT, sending Truth's face into the mat. Riley then gets up as the crowd goes wild, anticipating that it is time for his finisher. Alex doesn't let them down, lifting Truth up and connecting with "You're Dismissed"! He makes the cover. 1...2...3!!!!
HERE IS YOUR WINNER....ALEX RILEY!!!!! (Time of Match: 9:46)
Shelton seems pretty impressed, but his expression changes as Alex looks towards him. Riley then helps Truth to his feet and they shake hands. Alex grabs a mic and turns back to Shelton.
Alex: Over the past few weeks, I've earned the respect of guys like John Morrison and RVD, but you still claim I haven't done enough. I'm winning over the entire locker room, except for you. So tell me, what is it I have to do?
Shelton grabs a mic and looks ready to speak, but instead drops it and heads up the entrance ramp. Meanwhile, Riley looks on in frustration.
