Bully Ray and Brooke Hogan make their way out, and Taz immediately leaves the commentary table to "take a phone call". Bully says that last week should have been the greatest night of their lives, but it turned into a train wreck. He says that he expected what happened from Devon, but never from Taz. Bully calls Taz a scumbag, and says he's a freaking coward for not being man enough to come out and face him. He says the thigns he's going to do to Taz and Devon, he can't even say on national television, and that they all better sleep with one eye open.
Bully reminds us that he can't do anything to the Aces & Eights unless Hulk Hogan lifts his suspension. He says he knows Hogan is at home nursing his injuries, but he needs the suspension lifted so he can do what is right for all of them. Sting's music hits, and "the Icon" makes his way out to the ring. He says that Hulk Hogan never does anything halfway, and that he has to do everything to the very top, or it's just not good enough. Sting says he's only gone halfway, because he handed Brooke over to Bully Ray, but now it's time to go all the way and reinstate Bully Ray.
Backstage, Austin Aries and Bobby Roode put each other over trying to figure out which one of them should face Hernandez later tonight. Aries even says his win over Roode was a fluke, just to get out of the match. Pretty funny segment, with Roode being decided the challenger in tonight's match.
After a commercial break, Jeff Hardy is shown backstage, and tells Christopher Daniels to step up and try to take the World title from him tonight. He says he's going to show everybody who he is, and exactly who Daniels isn't.
(3) Bobby Roode vs. Hernandez
Surprisingly, Roode is able to outpower the Supermex early on, taking him to the corner and firing away with body shots and closed right hands. This doesn't last long though, as Hernandez takes him down with a huge running shoulder block, and a very long stalling vertical suplex. Following a poke to the eyes, Roode regains the control and takes the big man down with a neckbreaker. Hernandez off the ropes, but he gets knocked down by a shoulder block from Roode. Supermex is able to shake off Roode and throw him over the top rope to the outside. Hernandez looks to fly, but Aries runs down and moves his "friend" out of the way. Aries continues to distract Herhandez while Roode sneaks up from behind and nails him with a bulldog. 1..2..3.
Winner: Bobby Roode
