Winners: MNM
Match Time: 5:10
Rating: **1/2
Commentary: Not a bad match, but for something that went a decent amount of time (in Velocity minutes, anyway), it felt like very little happened.

The Mexicools versus Vito and Nunzio

Psychosis locks up with Vito, and Vito gets a headlock. Psychosis shoots him off, but Vito comes back with a shoulder. Another shoulder, Psychosis leapfrogs and gets a dropkick. Japanese Armdrag by Psychosis, tag to Super Crazy. Crazy comes in with a double axe handle on Vito’s arm. He wrenches the arm, but Vito hits a knee and tags Nunzio.

Rating: ***
Commentary: Way better than the opener. These two teams have great chemistry together, and hopefully, we’ll see the Mexicools contend for the titles again soon.

Jamie Noble versus Caprice Coleman

Should be good. Noble gets a takedown, but Coleman gets out. Drop toe hold into a front facelock by Noble. Coleman tries to roll out, but Noble keeps the hold. He slams Coleman, and both men get up.

Winner: Jamie Noble
Match Time: 3:18
Rating: **1/2
Commentary: Disappointing, but it was only three minutes. I like Coleman, but he didn’t get to show a whole lot here.

The Mark Henry video package airs again, followed by footage of Henry’s success from Smackdown.

Sylvan versus Scotty 2 Hotty

Winner gets into the Rumble. Scotty dodges a grapple attempt, then gets the crowd clapping. He dodges another lockup, then dances. Lockup, and Sylvan gets a waistlock. Scotty gets a standing switch.
