Christian asks if it is for the title and HHH says no, so Christian flips out and leaves the ring and calls HHH ridiculous. Dolph is addressed next, and HHH reminds him that he got beat last week, so he is going to face the person who beat him. He tells Dolph he can't believe he is going to say this, but he hopes they will have a new United States Champion in Zack Ryder, and says 'Woo Woo Woo' to an angered Dolph. He leaves with Vickie then tells Cody he can have the night off, but Cody says something under his breath and HHH puts him in a triple threat match for the Intercontinental Championship. They keep going back and forth, and it is upped to a ten man Battle Royal then HHH tells him to stay put because his match is up next.
Drew McIntyre is the first man eliminated, then the Sin Cara double comes out and eliminates the original, but Daniel Bryan grabs him and throws him over the top rope. They continue to fight at ringside and the first Cara tries to get back in, but the refs wont allow him and make him go to the back. Ted DiBiase works on Cody in the corner as Sheamus eliminates both Alex Riley and Justin Gabriel, then Zeke throws both Daniel Bryan and John Morrison by throwing them over his shoulder. It is down to four men as Ted kicks Cody in the corner and Zeke and Sheamus start slugging it out in the middle of the ring. Sheamus clubs him with forearms then avoids Dream Street by Ted, and Cody attacks him after eliminating Ted on the top turnbuckle.
Cody gets thrown out but holds on to the ropes, then pulls it down as Zeke charges at him to eliminate him, and he only has Sheamus left to deal with. Sheamus pounds on him and lifts him up for the Celtic Cross, but he can't connect as Christian comes out to make a distraction. He turns back to the match and continues to attack Cody, but Christian jumps on the apron again and it allows Cody to use his mask to hit Sheamus and eliminate him. Christian adds further damage by throwing him into the ringpost and screams at him and asks him how it feels to get a title stolen from him.
Winner - Cody Rhodes
