The main event is Team Cena (John Cena & Charlie Haas & Rob Van Dam) vs. Team Booker (Booker T & Luther Reigns & Rene Dupree) in the “Summer Games Relay.”
The “Summer Games Relay” was a six man tag, sort of. The match started with a member of each team in the ring with a five minute time period. If a pinfall or submission didn’t occur, then the team that won a coin toss would get “the relay” and then switch to another team member. If there wasn’t a finish by the end of the relay, the other team got to send a member in, and so on.
The match started with Booker T vs. Rob Van Dam. At the end of the period, Reigns joined the match as Booker’s team won the coin toss. The third period hit and Hass entered, then Dupree, then Cena, then Booker again. Cena pinned Booker.
After they went off the air, Cena spoke to the crowd.
