Santino Marella vs Dolph Ziggler (w/ Vickie Guerrero)

Dolph punches him in the head and drops him with a neckbreaker, then he hits an elbow drop for a near fall and stomps him in the chest. He takes Santino's Cobra and rubs it in his face, then he calls Santino a joke and throws it on the ground before picking him back up. Santino fights back with a few punches but Dolph knocks him back down, then he makes a nonchalant cover and punches Santino in the head. Santino comes back with a hiptoss and a diving headbutt, then he calls for Cobra but Vickie grabs it from the apron, then Santino yells at her and tells her to give it back. Dolph hits a Zig Zag but doesn't make the cover, then he picks Santino back up and hits a second Zig Zag before finally making the cover.

Wade Barrett vs Justin Gabriel

Wade rolls him in and connects with a few kidney shots, then he hits a backbreaker for a near fall and goes back to the kidney shots. He continues to weaken Gabriel with some punches and puts him in a seated abdominal stretch, then Gabriel elbows Wade and makes it to his feet.
