Fatal Fourway: Dolph Ziggler vs. Jack Swagger vs. John Morrison vs. Alex Riley

Only a few minutes into the match, Riley had Swagger pinned, but Vickie Guerrero put Swagger’s foot on the ropes to break the count. Ziggler then acuses Vickie of costing him the match, which doesn’t make much sense considering he would have lost the title if Riley pinned Swagger. Morrison suplexes Riley off the top. Swagger suplexes Ziggler off the top. Morrison sells a knee injury at ringside. Swagger has Riley in the ankle lock, while at the same time Ziggler has Morrison in a sleeper hold. Both guys escape.
