Ethan Carter heads to the ring and says Kurt Angle does not get to sucker punch a Carter, and he looked up to him before he sucker punched him. Ethan says they are excited for their steel cage match, and Kurt wants to use the cage as a weapon because he's afraid of his submission skills. He says Kurt has an ankle lock, but he has a leg lock and he is going to tear every ligament in Kurt's leg. Ethan says he beat Sting to become the new icon in wrestling, and he is going to beat Kurt to become the new face of American wrestling. He calls himself the new "American Icon" and says they are printing money, then Kurt comes out and says he's an American asshole. Kurt says he's three days away from ending Ethan's career, but he doesn't want to wait, and he charges the ring but Ethan runs away. Kurt goes to leave but Ethan sneaks back out and chopblocks his legs, then he dropkicks his knee and applies his leglock until they are pulled apart by some refs.
Gail Kim & Alpha Female & Lei'd Tapa (w/ Chris Sabin) vs Velvet Sky, ODB & Madison Rayne
Gail sends Madison into the corner and kicks her, then ODB tags in and splashes Gail before connecting with a Bronco Buster. Tapa gets in and clotheslines ODB, then ODB ducks another and Velvet tries to knock Alpha down with some kicks. She gets her down for a near fall, then the women end up brawling on the apron and floor, and Sabin tries to go after Velvet behind the ref's back. Sabin screams at her and calls her a stupid skank, then Velvet slaps him and pulls the ropes down when he runs at her. Alpha gets back in the ring and grabs her, but Velvet hits her low and connects with In Yo Face for the win.
Winners – Velvet Sky, ODB & Madison Rayne
We rejoin Samuel Shaw backstage, looking for Christy, but he walks in on Velvet Sky in the locker room and she screams at him to leave. He asks where Christy is and insists she tells him, then Velvet says she's in the makeup room and he goes off to look for her. Shaw finds someone backstage and asks if the makeup room is close, and the man points to a door and Shaw enters as we go to a break. We get back to see Shaw slowly push the door open, calling for Christy, but it's really Ken Anderson sitting in a red haired wig. He says hello to Shaw and starts pummeling him, smearing lipstick on his face before telling Shaw he had better leave Christy alone. Anderson leaves Shaw on the ground, but Shaw leans up and smirks as he says he will see them Sunday, both of them.
