Miz TV starts the show, and Miz welcomes Randy Orton and Sheamus and asks them who their new partner will be. Orton says Big Show helped them and that's his choice, and Sheamus says he doesn't trust him but he agrees with him. Orton says he'd rather have the giant on his side instead of fighting him, then Big Show comes out to share his thoughts. Miz says he knows about not trusting Show, but Show says his opinion doesn't matter and he should just sit there and shut up. Show says they don't have to like each other, and if they work together, there's no one that can stop them, even The Shield. Sheamus says they have beat the hell out of each other several times, and he's a great opponent but he's also devious and he needs to know he can trust him. All four men start to argue about trusting each other, then Booker T comes out and says he too needs to know if they can get along. Booker says they will get an answer tonight, because the three of them will team up in a six man main event tag match. 

Mark Henry vs Zack Ryder

Henry throws Zack into the corner and punches him, then he whips him across the ring before sending him back into the opposite corner. Henry picks him up but Zack floats over, then he hits the ropes but Henry hits a World's Strongest Slam for the win. Henry hits a second World's Strongest Slam and follows it with a third, then he taunts Zack until Ryback heads down to the ring. Ryback stares him down while Henry yells at him, then Ryback sends him out of the ring with a Meathook and pumps up the crowd.

Winner – Mark Henry

Teddy Long approaches Booker T and tells him that he met with Vickie Guerrero and made the Ryback versus Henry match for Wrestlemania. Booker turns and says he likes the match, but he shouldn't have talked to Vickie because Teddy works for him, not Vickie. Teddy takes offense to the statement and says he thought he works with Booker, not for him, and Booker looks annoyed as we go to a break.
