Falls Count Anywhere Match
Rey Mysterio vs. Cody Rhodes
We get a video package that highlights the events between these two men that have led to this match.
Rhodes is the first man out. He has a mic and he says in fitting with the name of this PPV, he's going to ask the crowd to take the paper bags that his assistant is handing out, and place them over their head's because they are extremely ugly. Mysterio is next.
The bell rings, and Rhodes strikes quickly, beating on Rey in the corner. When he charges Mysterio however, he's caught with a boot. Rhodes tries to come right back, but he eats a hurricarana to the outside. Mysterio follows with a baseball slide into a hurricarana. Mysterio follows Rhodes, but he's met with a big dropkick. Rhodes takes it to Mysterio with a couple of big right hands before he takes Mysterio up the ramp. Rhodes tries to slam Mysterio head first into the stage screens, but Mysterio reverses and sends Cody in head first. Cody falls to the floor, and Mysterio leaps off the stage with a big seated senton, connecting on Rhodes which is good for a two count. Mysterio and Rhodes fight to the outside where Rhodes crotches Mysterio on a barricade before clotheslining him off, which is good for a two count.
Mysterio is able to come back with a big kick to Rhodes head, and they begin to fight up the stairs in the middle of a sea of fans. Rhodes sends Mysterio through one of the hand rails, locking in a Boston crab while Mysterio is locked in the rail. Rhodes uses his mask to head butt Mysterio and the two continues to fight up the stairs, making their way to the top. Rhodes slams Mysterio's hand down on the rail, and the two trade blows. Rhodes and Mysterio fight out into a hallway and out twoard the concourse. Mysterio blocks a punch and rams Cody right into a couple of trash cans. Mysterio picks up a trash can lid (plastic) and smashes it across Rhodes' back, going for a pin a getting a two count.
Rhodes uses one of the concession stands to leap off of and connect with a kick to Mysterio's head. Rhodes launches Mysterio up and Mysterio lands on the concession counter before leaping back off onto Rhoes with a cross body that's good for another near fall. Rhodes and Mysterio fight back out to the stair case, and Rhodes seems to be doing everything he can to get away from Mysterio. Mysterio climbs up on one of the barricades, but Rhodes walks away and Mysterio abandons his plans. Mysterio charges Rhodes, but Rhodes ends up hip tossing him over the barricade and back to the ringside area. Cody catches a charging Rey, and slams him head first into the steel ring steps, but it's still only enough for two.
