They were pushing that Rex used a mysterious illegal object last week, which are the large rings on his fingers covered up with tape. All three judges gave the first round to Godderz. The judges awarded the second round to Godderz as well.

Rex used a towel in between rounds on his hands, which apparently had some kind of chemical on it. He raked Godderz in the eyes and Godderz was blinded. Rex used the knockout punch with rings to win the match.

- A video package on Go For Broke aired next. DJ Z, Braxton Sutter, and Mark Andrews all said they’re very happy to be part of a team.

The Hardys and DCC fought all over in the back and the outside. Jeff needed to be revived and Matt threw water from the Lake of Reincarnation on Jeff. Jeff turned into the purple shirt-wearing, cigarette smoking Jeff. Matt and DCC member two fought on top of a forklift that was up very high. Matt got pushed off the top and landed hard on the ground. Jeff checked on him but Matt apparently lost his memory because he couldn’t recognize Jeff.

They brawled around ringside with Lashley in control. He gave Edwards a sick looking belly-to-belly overhead suplex on the ramp and then threw him into the crowd. Lashley used his wrist tape to choke out Edwards.

Edwards countered out of a delayed suplex into a blue thunder bomb. He then made his comeback with a flurry of offense, busting out a sick suicide dive. Edwards charged at Lashley but Lashley pulled referee Brian Hebner in front of him and Edwards collided with Hebner.

Lashley hit the spear and a second referee came out but Edwards kicked out at two. Lashley knocked out the second referee. Hebner attempted to disqualify Lashley but he stopped Hebner. This gave Edwards the chance to recover and hit the Boston Knee Party to win the match.
