– Sheamus & Drew McIntyre defeated Max McGuirk & Wes Brisco when Sheamus pinned McGuirk
– The Abraham Washington Show (hosted by Abraham Washington along with Rosa Mendes and Troy Jackman) featured Alberto Banderas (formerly Dos Caras Jr.). This was actually a very entertaining segment where Washington thought he had Antonio Banderas instead of Alberto Banderas. Washington making fun of Banderas’s gold led to an altercation between Banderas and Jackman which Banderas got the better of. The segment finished with Washington saying he was going to have karate lessons next week so Jackman can learn how to fight.
