Show makes it to his feet and gets on the apron, but Henry grabs him and slams his head into the turnbuckle as we go to a commercial break. When we return, Henry knocks Show to the floor and he follows him out and rams him into the ringpost, then Henry picks up the stairs and throws them at the ringpost. Show ducks the stairs and rolls inside but Henry hits him in the corner and hits a Vader Bomb from the second rope for a two count. Show avoids another strike by Henry and hits a spear, then he calls for a chokeslam but Henry breaks the hold and hits a World's Strongest Slam.
