Santino holds them and Cody falls down, and Santino goes for the Cobra but counters with Cross Rhodes for the win. Cody goes to the announcer's table after getting his title and tells Booker T he can hear everything he is saying.

Winner – Cody Rhodes
Dolph Ziggler joins Josh Mathews backstage for an interview and Josh says he was the only guy in two matches, but Dolph corrects him and says he won two matches. Josh says he was pinned early on in the tag match, but Dolph says he was still on the winning team and he did something that neither Rock or Cena did last night. Dolph says he was even better than CM Punk and calls him a sorry excuse for a champion and Dolph calls himself the new face of the WWE.

They go to lock up again but Punk kicks him in the legs, then Dolph fights back with kicks of his own and they slug it out before Dolph knocks Punk to the mat and hits a jumping elbow drop for a two count.
