Winners - Sheamus & Zack Ryder
Daniel Bryan is shown talking to AJ Lee about almost cashing in tonight, and he says it felt better than anything he could have imagined. He wishes it didn't get taken away but AJ reminds him he still has the briefcase and he also has a match for a title shot tonight. Wade Barrett comes in and makes fun of him for his cheap cash in attempt but AJ scoffs at him and Wade says Bryan needs little girls to fight his battles. Wade says he will have other chances at the title but it's not tonight, and Bryan reminds Wade that they both have the same amount of championship wins and he doesn't need anyone to fight his battles because he will do it himself.
Ted DiBiase vs Heath Slater
Jinder Mahal appears on the Titantron and yells at Ted for abandoning his family's wealth, and that allows Slater to attack him. Ted rebounds with a suplex and some punches on the apron, then ducks a clothesline but gets thrown into the ringpost. Slater works on the arm and drops down on it then hits a headlock takeover and applies a single-armed chicken wing. Ted fights through the pain and punches Slater in the stomach, then whips him in the corner and hits a back drop and an atomic drop. Slater kicks him in the knee but Ted rebounds with a clothesline, and turns him around and hits Dream Street then makes the cover.
Winner - Ted DiBiase
Cody Rhodes joins Matt Striker and says he didn't throw water at a six-time world champion, he threw it at a lowly commentator. He says it was his match and Booker just ran his mouth, so he did something about it because he is free to do it. Now that he doesn't have his mask he is free to get revenge on Randy Orton and he can defend his Intercontinental Championship, and he is free to win tonight's Fatal Four Way on his way to the world title. Cody says the world is his oyster and he says he has a clear mind, then calls Booker T a limited commentator and asks if he can dig that, sucka.
