The Rhodes family joins Renee Young backstage, and she asks what tonight means to them, and Dusty says it's about family and holding their heads high. Goldust says The Shield has been running roughshod over WWE, but they are here to turn things around and they will never forget any of them. Cody says he would be lucky to be half the man his brother or father is, and they might not be the perfect family, but he fights for each of them tonight.
