* Layla, Alicia Fox & Aksana b. Natalya, Naomi & Brie Bella by disqualification after AJ Lee interfered. After the match, a brawl breaks out between all of the Divas.
* R-Truth & Fandango meet in the ring for a dance contest. The Miz interrupts, wearing a fake afro, and enters himself into the contest. The Great Khali comes out and enters as well. The Miz wins the contest, which causes Fandango to complain about the other competitors being a disgrace to the art of dance. Fandango then gets sent out of the ring.
