New music plays as two masked men enter the ring.
The masked men, dressed in all black, get ready for the match. Masked Man No. 1 puts DiBiase in a headlock as he controls the first quarter of the match.

After a minute, Masked Man No. 2 throws DiBiase out of the ring, and Masked Man No. 2 does a back flip to the outside. Then, Masked Man No. 1 kicks Rhodes in the midsection. He then puts his arm around his belly and flips Rhodes frontwards. One, two, three, and the masked team gets the victory.

The match gets started with CM Punk throwing some hay makers that do not affect Kane as Kane throws Punk outside the ring. Then he follows him outside as he works on the midsection of Punk, who cannot get any offense going until he takes something out of his tights. He hits Kane with it and knocks him out cold, the ref counts out Kane as Punk gets the victory.

Rey gets the best pop of the night as he gets ready to take on Regal. As the bell rings, Regal sucker punches the ref and gets disqualified, as Rey wins the match just like that. Again, Regal walks out and looks back with a sad look on his face, but as he keeps going up the ramp, the lights go out again. After about 25 seconds, the lights come back on with Regal laid out on the ramp. Rey looks around for the culprit for the second straight week.

Jericho: I have watched you JBL, and I have watched you good [sic]. I want you to join us as me and Batista are going to take over the wrestling world. We want you to be a part of it. What do you say?
JBL: Jericho and Batista, hell no. If you think that I would join your stupid little group, you are crazy or just out of you damn mind. How do you even know that you can trust one another. I mean you hate each other, and I couldn't trust neither of y'all, so "hell no!" to both of you.
