Knockouts Championship Match: Steel Cage
Taryn Terrell (c) vs. Gail Kim
Gail comes out of the gate aggressive and taking the fight to Terrell. Jade tries to help by reaching through the camera hole, which causes enough distraction for Terrell to take the advantage. Gail counters a cutter and starts to slowly regain some offense. Gail performs a crossbody for only a two count. After that, Gail goes to climb up the cage and escape, but the Dollhouse climbs up from the outside and pushes Gail back down to the ring. Once Gail is back up, Terrell hits her with the cutter and scores the victory to retain.
Winner and STILL Knockouts Champion, Taryn Terrell
After the match, Terrell clotheslines Earl Hebner and shuts the cage again with the Dollhouse and Gail inside. Out comes Awesome Kong and the Dollhouse frantically try to lock Kong out of the cage. Kong watches from outside the cage as Jade and Marti beat up Gail. Terrell then removes the wedding ring of Gail, and attempts to break Kim's hand by stomping on it.
AL Snow and Josh Matthews recap what has been going on between James Storm, Magnus and Mickie James. Mickie comes down to the ring and says yes she will wrestle one more match, and she can't wait for that match. But that's not why she is out here. James Storm comes out and joins Mickie in the ring, and Mickie says she wants to personally apologize for what Magnus did with the guitar. James Storm tries to say that Magnus could just be jealous of him, but Mickie says Magnus was just trying to protect them and their family. Storm begins to say that he has talked with some country music stars and even Billy Corgan in the back, and they want to help Mickie and her career; as Storm leaves, Mickie says she'll meet with them in Nashville.

The Wolves vs. The Dirty Heels
The dirty heels start the match with Aries diving on Aries, leading to Richards diving out onto Aries. Roode begins to get double teamed in the ring by both Wolves as Aries regroups on the outside. Things settle down and Aries and Richards begin the match in the ring. The dirty heels come out on fire, looking to make up for their loss in the first match; grounding Edwards for a while until he is able to score a couple counters and tags in Richards. The wolves return the favor and ground Roode with some double teams moves and then a reverse figure four by Richards. Richards hits a german suplex as Edwards rolls Roode up for the pin, but Aries jumps off the top rope to break up the near fall. Aries tags in and brings the fight to the wolves, even hitting a double neckbreaker on both wolves on the ropes. Aries gets Richards into the last chancery as Roode locks the crossface on Edwards. Richards blocks the brainbuster and the wolves hit a superkick and driver combo, but Aries kicks out at a long two count.

Roode gets thrown to the outside and the wolves hit their powerbomb back breaker combo to score the pin and the win. Amazing match, too many highlights to include them all.

Once the hold is broken, EY fights off Angle and heads to the top rope and dives off, but is countered into another Ankle Lock. EY taps out and Angle breaks the hold, only to realize that's not how he wins the match. Angle then walks into a lowblow, and gets hit with a piledriver from EY.
