JB is backstage with Bully Ray. Ray says he doesn't need any introduction because we all know who he is. He introduces himself anyway, letting us know he is indeed, Bully Ray. He says Anderson thinks he has Ray right where he wants him, but he's kidding himself. Ray has been exploiting the city of Philadelphia for years, milking the fans for every penny they're worth. He says he's been abusing and taking advantage of these fans for years. He says screw Anderson, and screw Philly, he's Bully Ray and he's from New York City.
Falls Count Anywhere
- Mr. Anderson vs. Bully Ray
The cameras follow Ray from the interview area all the way out to the ramp, and to the ring. Ray gets a healthy amount of heat on his way to the ring, due mostly to his pre-match promo, no doubt. Mr. Anderson is out next, and he gets a big pop from the Philly crowd. Anderson doesn't call for the mic, but instead runs right down to the ring and begins trading blows with Bully Ray. Ray gets the advantage, slamming Anderson's head into the turnbuckle, but he's taken out by a couple of big clotheslines, then a spinning neckbreaker from Anderson. Ray goes up the ropes, but Anderson catches him with a low blow. Anderson shoulders Ray, but Ray drops down and gets his foot right in Anderson's face to take him down to the mat.
Ray picks Anderson up and shoves him into the corner hard. Ray rips off Anderson's t-shirt and hits him with a huge chop before raking him eyes from behind. Ray hits Anderson with another huge chop that echoes throughout the building. Ray hits yet another chop, but Anderson ducks a clothesline and is able to come up with a big kick to Ray's head for a near fall.
Anderson goes to the outside and grabs a sign from a fan that says 'Welcome to Philly A**hole'. Anderson hits Ray with the sign, then opens the sign up to reveal a Dead End sign, before hitting Ray with it again. Ray goes to the outside, and Anderson is quick to follow, laying in with big right hands. Anderson grabs a beer from a fan in the front row and smashes it into Ray's head. Anderson continues punching away at Ray before slamming his head into the barricade. Anderson then slams Ray's head into a chair sitting at ringside, but when he goes to throw Anderson in the ring steps, Ray reverses and slams Anderson into the steps, which is good for a two count.
