We go backstage and see that Rey Mysterio and Matt Hardy will be the two superstars to take on Edge & Chris Masters.Matt Hardy is first out followed by Rey Mysterio. And we are ready to kick this thing off. Right as we are about ready to kick things off, Lita grabs the microphone and says she has a little surprise for us tonight. “Her man is not going to be wrestling.” Edge gets on the microphone and says he doesn’t care about either Rey Jr. or Matt Hardy, because it does nothing to defeat them again, but he does care about himself. Then he announces that Gene Snitsky is his replacment in the match. Chris Masters attacks Rey Jr. from behind and goes for a quick cover.Snitsky finally gets some shots in after Matt Hardy almost hits the twist of fate on Masters. Masters now gets the tag and backs Hardy into a corner and works him under then followed up by a double underhook and then a two count.
