When we return, Kash hits a backbreaker and a powerslam then goes up to the top turnbuckle. He hits a corkscrew moonsault but only gets two, and argues with the ref that it was three. Kash botches (I think) a powerbomb into a pin, and Jesse rolls through and holds on to make the cover himself. Kash is pissed and while Aries causes commotion outside, he drops Jesse with a cradle piledriver. Aries makes the cover but Jesse kicks out and Aries can't believe it.
He knocks Jesse back down and makes a cover, but once again Jesse kicks out and Aries tells the ref to count faster. Aries is ready to end the match, and hits the Brain Buster to make the cover and wins the gauntlet match. Christy Hemme interviews him afterwards and he plays it up like he beat all of the competitors. He is the #1 contender and calls Kendrick the 'Wizard of Odd', and tells him he is coming down the yellow brick road and taking away Kendrick's title. Kendrick comes out to congratulate him and gets in his face, but Aries blows him off and walks towards the back. Kendrick gets pissed off and knocks him to the ground and they go at it and and swinging at each other until it gets broken up by referees.
Winnner – Austin Aries
Tracy Brooks says hello to Eric Bischoff in his office and she tells him that she has a few ideas to help the Knockouts. She says she was Knockout Law and was in charge of them and even reffed some matches. She would like her job back and he says he is hard of hearing and asks her to come closer to say it. She leans in and speaks while he gets a peak of her cleavage right up close, then he leans back and says he thinks that sounds like a good idea and they will have to talk more.
