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.
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.
