– Matt Hardy defeated Deuce. The finish saw MVP trip up Deuce to help him get the win.
– Kenny Dykstra and Victoria came out. Chuck Palumbo’s music hit and he never came out. They then tried to cover by having Victoria get on the mic and build up Dykstra as the future of wrestling. Dykstra also gets on the mic and brags. He then tries to cover saying he is so good no one wants to come out and face him. Dykstra announces himself as the winner by forfeit. A production guy jumped over the barricade and ran to the back, so it appears a problem took place.
