-Big Show and Rey Mysterio defeated The Real Americans. Zeb in a wheelchair did a promo before the match attempting to give Show and Rey a team name. Rey got the pin after a splash off the Big Show’s shoulders. Afterward, Paul Heyman came out to cut a promo for Brock Lesnar, who did not appear.
-The Miz defeated Brodus Clay. Wade Barrett delivered live commentary of the match about how awful both men were. He got a bigger babyface reaction than Miz or Clay. Miz won in short order.
