John Laurinaitis is talking to David Otunga about how excited people are about him, then Teddy Long walks in and John tells him to make himself at home. Teddy says this isn't his home, and John says he had no idea any of the Superstars would come out and support him, but Teddy agrees about one General Manager. He says they should ask the fans what they think, but John says he only cares about the Board of Directors and says he is taller than him. Teddy says John is a high-stacked pile of crap and John says he has a battle royal planned for a title shot that will top the match they just saw. Teddy says they will each pick five guys and Samckdown is the better show, so he will pick someone to beat Otunga then makes fun of his bowtie and walks away.
R-Truth & Kofi Kingston vs Primo & Epico (w/ Rosa Mendes)
Truth hits a shoulder block and a clothesline, then ducks Epico and punches him but he gets attacked by Primo, who made a blind tag. Truth tries to make a tag but Primo knocks him down and shoves Kofi off the apron, then Kofi jumps back up for the quick tag. He knocks Epico off the apron and goes for a Boom Drop, but Rosa gets on the apron and distracts him while Epico tries to get involved. Truth takes care of that then Kofi avoids a Backstabber and hits Primo with Trouble In Paradise for the win.
Winners – R-Truth & Kofi Kingston
Josh Mathews joins Chris Jericho for an interview, and Jericho says it was unfair to say he lost because he was not pinned or submitted last night. He says he took a cheap shot and woke up in the trainer's room, and he is going to prove that he really is the best in the world at what he does. Jericho says he will show CM Punk and everyone in the battle royal what he is capable of, then walks off as we go to a commercial break.
