- Matt Striker is standing by with Barrett in the back.

He says when he defeats Kofi again tonight, it is his last chance.
- We go to the ring as The Great Khali comes out with Natalya and Hornswoggle. We see footage of Mae Young giving birth to Hornswoggle on RAW. I can't believe I just typed that. The trio dances in the ring as we go to break.
The Great Khali, Natalya & Hornswoggle vs. Primo, Epico & Rosa Mendes
Rosa pie-faces Natalya to begin things and Natalya repeatedly drives her face into the mat. Rosa tags Epico and Natalya tags Khali. Epico runs and tags Primo in fear. Khali brings Epico in over the top and takes over with chops to the chest. Khali tags Hornswoggle in for some chops too. Hornswoggle hits Stunners on both Primo and Epico but Primo hits him with a shoulderblock. They continue to dominate Hornswoggle. Hornswoggle comes back and slips under Epico to tag Khali. Primo jumps in and Khali takes care of him too. Khali hits a big chop the head of Primo for the win.
Winners by pin: The Great Khali, Natalya, & Hornswoggle
- Striker asks Kofi if his win on Wednesday over Barrett has given him any momentum going into tonight. Kofi says this is not about momentum. This might be his last shot and he's got his back against the wall but he's used to that. He says Wade will run into Trouble in Paradise.
