reverses to a wristlock but Aries picks his ankle and takes him down, spins around on Magnus' back, and prances around the ring celebrating. Aries tries for a test of strength but can't reach Magnus' hand, so he kicks at Magnus' legs, does a back and forth off the ropes, and cartwheels past a shot from Magnus. He runs around celebrating again and turns around right into a big clothesline from Magnus. Roode tags and and Storm begs for a tag on his side, so Magnus obliges and Roode bails out to the floor as we go to commercial.
We're back and Bubba is beating up James Storm in the corner. Storm wanders out into the middle of the ring and Bubba beats him up there too, but Storm suddenly starts firing back, takes Bubba to the mat with an armbar, and stomps on his hand before tagging in Joe. They slowly circle each other before just going toe to toe in the middle of the ring. Joe gets the best of that and comes off the ropes into a back elbow from Bubba, but another run to the ropes and he takes Bubba out with a leaping knee. Aries tags in and Joe launches him into the air with a backdrop, tags in Magnus to hit a big boot to Aries, then hits a back senton and Magnus covers for 2. Roode tags in but gets hiptossed by Magnus, who quickly tags in Storm and Roode immediately bails out to the floor. He slowly makes his way back into the ring while telling the referee to back Storm off, then tags in Aries. Storm slingshots Aries over the top and into the ring, then tags out to Samoa Joe, who just peppers Aries with right hands. Joe misses a charge into the corner and Aries tries to follow him in with the IED, but Joe casually walks out of the corner and Aries hits nothing. Joe goes for the Muscle Buster, but Bubba and Roode come in and go after Joe to break it up, and then Aries hits a crucifix bomb and tags out to Bubba, who hits a neckbreaker and bashes Joe with a double axhandle. Roode tags in and chokes Joe on the ropes (good thing he doesn't work for WWE), then takes him to the corner and a hard chop sends Joe to the mat. Roode with a snapmare and the Perfect necksnap and then he spits at Storm to draw him into the ring so Bubba can illegally come in and nail Joe and cover for 2. Aries back in and he puts the boots to Joe before coming off the second rope with an elbowdrop for 2. Bubba puts his boot on the top rope and Aries rams Joe into it, but Joefires up and destroys all three of them before Aries takes Joe down by the leg and tags out to Bubba. Joe lays in more right jabs, but Bubba lays him out with a clothesline and makes another tag out to Roode, who arrogantly stares down at Joe before nailing him and then cheapshotting Magnus off the apron. Roode charges Joe in the corner but, as you'd know if you've ever seen a Samoa Joe match, he runs right into the STJoe and Joe tags out to Storm. Storm cleans house on Aries, hitting a clothesline in the corner, then knocks Bubba off the ring apron before tearing into Roode with clotheslines and a BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACK BODYDROP. Bubba comes in and attacks Storm, beating him down in the corner, and Aries tries a missile dropkick to Bubba but Joe moves and Aries hits Bubba. Joe and Magnus hit their finish on Aries, Roode comes in and hits a spinebuster on Magnus, but Storm comes in and hits the Last Call on Roode and pins him for 3.
Winners: James Storm, Samoa Joe & Brutus Magnus
Great match, great finish, and fun postmatch antics as Bubba comes in and lays out all three babyfaces with a steel chair. He stands over Storm and says he ain't making it to Lockdown because he's going to be the #1 contender, he's taking Storm out, and he's going to take his good buddy Roode's World Title.
