Pre-Show Match: The Dudley Boyz vs. The Ascension vs. Jack Swagger and Mark Henry vs. Damien Sandow and Darren Young in a fatal four way tag team match.
Jack Swagger and Darren Young started things off. They exchange quick pinfalls. Sandow was tagged in and was over like a million bucks. Sandow hit a few clotheslines to Young before tagging in Swagger, who was caught with a suplex. Viktor was tagged in and got some heat on Swagger. Then all four teams got into the ring, and we cut to break.
We come back with Bubba in control of Viktor as he hit a big slam for 2. Swagger made the save, and things broke down in the ring. Bubba hit a slam to Young, which set up the What’s up! They then hit the 3-D to Viktor for 2. Konnor made the save. Henry hit a splash to Bubba then covered Viktor for the win.
Winners: Henry and Swagger. They advance to the Rumble match.
