James Storm & Jeff Hardy vs. Austin Aries & Bobby Roode
Roode starts off with Hardy. Roode hits a shoulderblock off the ropes as Mike Tenay plays up Hardy. The quick pace continues as Hardy hits his own shoulderblock and slows things down. Roode tags Aries in and they lock up. Aries takes Hardy down but Hardy backs him into the corner and takes him down with a head-scissors. Roode comes in illegally and Hardy tags Storm for some double teaming. They also double team the legal man, Aries. Roode scolds Aries at ringside and they have a shoving match.
Back to action as Roode and Aries have taken over on Hardy and are working together. Aries fakes the sound of a tag and comes in behind the ref's back. Roode comes back in as they keep the pressure on Hardy. Aries wants Roode to watch what he does as he drops a corkscrew in the corner for 2. Aries drags Hardy's body to Roode and tags him. They continue to make quick tags as they compete against each other at the expense of Hardy. Hardy finally makes the hot tag to Storm who turns it up against both opponents. Storm hits a neckbreaker to Roode; Aries goes to break the cover and Storm sees him and gets up causing Aries to drop the elbow on Roode instead. Daniels & Kazarian come to the ring and pull Storm out and they scuffle on the floor. Hardy hits the Twist of Fate in the ring on Roode but Aries clocks him from behind with the World Title as the bell rings.
Roode and Aries continue to decimate Hardy in the ring. Aries and Roode fight over the title belt and try to pose with it.

- Knox slowly enters the ring with his hammer and Sting unloads on him with his bat. Hebner takes the weapons and the bell sounds.
