Brodus Clay interrupts to brawl with Big Show, then David Otunga also makes his way out. Show knocks out Brodus, then Otunga dances to “Somebody Call My Momma” to add insult to injury.

Match 2. Alberto Del Rio def. Christian in a non-title match by submission. Cody Rhodes attacked Christian afterwards.
