– The Wedding of Laurel and Braxton: Braxton Sutter comes out with his groomsmen: a drunk Mike Bennett, Aron Rex (in his new Liberace gimmick), and Spud. Sutter doesn’t look happy. Maria Kanellis Bennett comes out with Sienna and is in a great mood. Finally, the blushing bride, Laurel Van Ness is introduced, all decked out in white. Maria then calls for the ring bearer, Allie. Allie comes out reluctantly. It’s hard to hear much of the ceremony as the crowd is wildly against this marriage and is quite vocal about it.
Finally, the vows are exchanged. Laurel says “I Do”. Allie goes to bring the rings, but falls and is berated by Maria. Braxton is asked if he takes Laurel for his wife. After a minute or torturous thinking, he says he doesn’t. He says he only agreed to things to save Allie’s job. He says that someday Laurel will make some man miserable, but it won’t be him. Braxton proclaims his love for Allie as the crowd goes nuts. Maria gets angry and fires Allie. Allie won’t take it, she won’t be fired, she quits. She hits Maria. Sienna tries to grab Allie, but Brooke comes out to fight Sienna and Robbie E comes out to fight Mike Bennett. Aron Rex and Spud leave as things get out of hand. Laurel is slumped on the mat, distraught and clinging to a bottle of champagne. Finally, the big moment. Braxton Sutter and Allie come together in the middle of the ring and share a wonderful kiss to an ecstatic crowd. Laurel slinks away, defeated and heartbroken.
After all this, several wrestlers including Moose, DJ Z, Andrew Everett, Brandi Rhodes, Eddie Edwards and more, come out to the ring to drink champagne and dance in the ring to close out the long tapings. For good measure, Pope nails a big punch on Spud and rips his clothes off, sending Spud scurrying away.
