Winner: Rey Mysterio
A big group of Diva's are shown talking to each other in the back, falling silent when Layla walks in. Layla says she knows they don't like her, but this might be her last night. She wants to apologize to everyone if she's ever done anything. Beth Phoenix says she's right about them not liking her, but Kelly Kelly says they like McCool a whole lot less. Layla walks away and the Diva's go right back to their conversations. Cole is shown setting up in his Cole Mine, and WWE did indeed show their hand on that one.
No Count-Out, No Disqualification, Loser Leaves WWE
Layla vs. Michelle McCool
McCool is the first woman out to the ring, and she makes her way out fairly quickly to very little reaction. The music continues to play, and Layla makes her way out next, taking off her gear on the way to the ring.
McCool attacks Layla before the bell with a big kick that sends her to the outside. McCool sends her back into the ring and hits Layla with a big kick to the face, but a pin attempt only results in a two count. McCool picks Layla up, but Layla takes her right back down and mounts her with a series of punches. Layla goes to the outside, and pulls McCool out, slamming her head first into the announcer's table. Layla charges McCool, but McCool moves and Layla flies into the announcer's table. McCool lays into Layla with a big kick before sending her back into the ring. McCool connects with a big European uppercut, but misses a clothesline and Layla connects with a big kick that's good for a near fall.
McCool begs off but Layla won't have any of it. McCool suplexes Layla, but Layla goes to the outside. McCool tries for a big boot, but ends up hung up on the barricade. Layla stands on the barricade and brings McCool to her feet, but McCool tosses her off the barricade and rolls Layla into the ring. McCool taunts Layla, but Layla slaps her before hitting an interesting floatover stunner from the top turnbuckle, but she still can't keep McCool down. Layla is screaming and looks close to tears. Layls walks right into a big boot from McCool, but she still kicks out at two. McCool goes for the faith breaker, but Layla fights it off and hits a beautiful neckbreaker, but McCool gets her foot on the ropes to avoid a pin.
McCool picks Layla up by her hair, but Layla turns it into a roll up. McCool counters that into an (almost) faith breaker, but when she goes for the cover, Layla counters into a crucifix pin, and she's able to score the three count.
