Christy Hemme is backstage with Mr. Anderson. Anderson actually calls down the mic backstage. He calls Christy Kristin. He mocks Jeff Hardy, and asks if he could possibly be one of the creatures of the night. He tells Hemme to close her eyes. He says he's sitting in the front row with his face painted and a pair of panties on his head, and he's chanting 'Let's go Hardy' and 'This is awesome'. He says he doesn't need or want to do that because he's an asshole. He says while Hardy has his fans, he has a following, and he likes to call them Anderson's assholes, and tonight, they will loudly and proudly drown out the creatures of the night as they proclaim the winner of the match, once again, Mr. Anderson. He let's the crowd do it, and thanks the assholes, before walking off, and coming back in with another Anderson.
