Bobby Roode comes out and says his appearance has changed (hair cut), but he is still the 'it' factor and he is the World Heavyweight Champion. He says it feels good to be there because he promised to defeat James Storm in front of his family and friends, and he came through on it. Roode says he needs to give Storm some credit for hitting him with the Last Call, but Storm ruined his own dreams and that is why he is still champion. He tells the fans he beat all of their heroes and there is no one left to beat, but Ken Anderson comes out and tells him to shut up. Anderson says he is going to kick his ass and take his title, and he doesn't need a bat or a beer bottle to do it.

Roode says Anderson was sitting at home for too long, and there's a group of guys in front of him waiting for a shot so he should take a number and get in line. Jeff Hardy comes out and says the only reason Roode is champion is because of Kurt Angle, and Kurt is out of his way now. Hardy says he needs to be selfish for a change, and Anderson says he was here first but they go back and forth about who is first while Roode eggs them on. Hulk Hogan appears on the big screen while referees run out and separate them, and he tells all the champions to be in the ring tonight, and Anderson will face Hardy for a title shot tonight.

Bully Ray & Crimson vs Austin Aries & Matt Morgan

Morgan and Crimson slug it out, then Morgan hits some knee lifts and a swinging sidewalk slam, but Crimson ducks a big boot and Bully snaps his leg on the ropes. Crimson jumps down on his leg and Bully takes a cheap shot while the ref is turned, then Crimson ducks a discus punch and hits an exploder suplex. Bully tags in and hits Morgan in the head, then they quick tag and work on Morgan's leg until Crimson gets hit with a surprise clothesline. Morgan dives and makes the tag, then Aries unloads on Bully in the corner until Crimson pulls him away and takes a swing at him. Aries takes him down with some strikes, then he avoids a spear and Crimson ends up hitting Bully, and he keeps it going by hitting a suicide dive on the floor. He rolls back in and goes after Bully again and tries to hit a Brainbuster, but Bully shifts his weight and holds Aries' trunks to steal the win.
