Samoa Joe and Magnus defeated Garrett Bischoff and D.O.C to even the series at 1-1 in the night. Magnus is used as the weak link in the match, so Joe could get the hot tag and get the crowd going. I actually liked how Magnus and Joe worked off of one another, with Joe hitting a beautiful kick to the back and hitting a corner splash. This allowed Magnus to pick up the victory with an elbow drop from the strong British superstar. It was not a long or clean match, but it did what was needed to happen. You needed Magnus to be taken more seriously as a strong competitor and he did. The pinfall victory helps him slowly creep up into the level of the guys like Joe and Sting.

Grade: B-

Ken Anderson defeated James Storm with the Mic Check. This was a quick match that had both teams distract the men in the ring. It really could have been much better planned out and logical, but it just was a filler type match. There is nothing more to really say besides, "Man, I wish this match was given more time." It wasn't.

Grade: C
