Beth slingshots eve into the bottom rope then whips her off the ropes, but Eve holds on then slingshots Beth into the corner and hits a diving clothesline. Eve goes for a standing moonsault and Beth gets her knees up then attempts a Glam Slam, but Eve counters into a leg choke submission. She lets go when Natalya tries to interfere again, but she knocks Beth out with a kick to the head and goes up top for a moonsault. Beth is able to get up and shove her off the top, then they fight on the middle turnbuckle but Beth hooks her arms and hits a top rope Glam Slam to retain.

David Otunga approaches CM Punk in the locker room and says he has a message from John Laurinaitis after he attacked Michael Cole last week. He says Punk should be professional and apologize to Cole, and Punk says he doesn't want to get on John's bad side, so he will think about it right after he wins the WWE Championship.
The Rock is shown backstage and he tells the MSG crowd that he was there to see his grandfather fight for the WWE Championship, and a few years later he was hanging out with Andre the Giant. He saw his father defend the tag team titles, and the Rock made his debut in the same place and it is where the fans chanted his name for the first time. Rock says that night started an odyssey and rattles off a few of his catchphrases and accomplishments, but he says that night he became the People's Champion. He tells everyone that the People's Era will start because he has finally… come back to New York City. Rock tells Awesome Truth there is a simple answer for tonight, and he says 'boots to asses' then addresses his partner, John Cena. He says Cena got his wish but he didn't count on the Rock bringing the people with him, because they are going to shoot lightning up his lady parts later tonight. The fans start a 'lady parts' chant and the Rock smiles, then says everyone knows how special and historic this building is, and he says he is going to add to the list and gets the fans to sing 'New York, New York' with him. He ends by saying boots to asses, all night long, New York City, it's on… if you smell what the Rock is cookin'.
