Following the match, Swagger holds Ryder in the ropes while Zeb mouths off to the Broski and pops him in the mouth for talking smack to him earlier.
Mark Henry is WALKING to the ring, and he's got a rope. THAT'S WHAT HE DO!
According to WWEActive, Ryback has no words for Striker and he's apparently making for the exit. The announce team is stumped as to what this means for the main event tonight.
Mark Henry in the ring, and while he doesn't need our approval, he plans on proving why he's the World's Strongest Man, and has been given two opponents (for a Tug O' War, apparently). Out first is "Sweet T" Tensai. The two big men assume their positions and start. Tensai holds out for about 15-20 seconds, but Henry pulls him over with relative ease. Out next is Sweet T's partner Brodus Clay. He fairs little better against Henry, who pulls him over in roughly 20 seconds.
Sheamus out now. He knows Henry only asked for two, but he wants to take on the World's Storngest Man too. Henry obliges and they set up for a good ol' tug of war. Sheamus powers up at first, but Henry slowly gains ground. Sheamus...lets go of the rope! Henry falls on his ass, gets back up all ticked off, but right into a Brogue Kick from Sheamus! Whatcha gonna do, fella?

Del Rio soaks in the "Ole!" chants and announces that, thanks to Ricardo, he can choose the stipulation, and he decided the triple threat for the World Title will be...a LAAAAAAADER MATCH! I like, I like.
Fandango versus The Great Khali...in a dance-off. No, just no. In fact, just Khali alone...no, just no.
Let's go Fandango-ing, ladies and germs! Lawler tries to "interview" Khali on his dancing experience, watching "Dancing With The Stars", and how he felt Jericho was on the show. "I better than him." Ha ha! He and Natalya do a few twirls and Natalya just sort of dances around Khali. Lukewarm reaction. Fandango, who says Jericho was "clumsy" on DWTS, and Summer Rae up next, and the crowd joins in with the music as he and Summer kill it and end the dance with a nice dip. Lawler asks the crowd and it seems like a bit of a split between the two pairs, but Lawler gives it to Khali. Fandango's not pleased, and lays out Khali with a Roll of the Dice before going up for a big time leg drop.
We go back to The Shield laying out the Undertaker on Smackdown last Friday, putting the Dead Man through a table to cap it off.
