Kofi was eventually able to make the hot tag to Bourne, who cleaned house with his high flying. The advantage went back to the heels though, after Swagger got his knees up when Bourne went for Air-Bourne. The challengers used their size advantage to keep Bourne down.
Bourne eventually made the hot tag to Kofi. Kofi nailed a high crossbody from the top for a two count. He followed with a boom drop, but missed the TIP and hit the SOS, but only got a two when Swagger interfered. Bourne planted Swagger with knees to the chest from the top, sending Swagger out. Kofi hit Ziggler with TIP, and Bourne followed up with the Air-Bourne splash to get the win for his team.
Zack Ryder's music hit, and that match is up next. Ziggler is already in the ring, trying to recover.
United States Championship Match:
Dolph Ziggler (c) vs. Zack Ryder
Ryder starts off hot, getting a series of two counts. "Let's Go Ryder" chants break out. Ryder stays on offense, eventually sending Ziggler to the outside. Air Boom, who have stayed at ringside, threw Ziggler in the ring. The referee ordered Air Boom to the back.
Ziggler took control of the match, earning several two counts. Ziggler is looking a lot like Curt Hennig at SummerSlam '91 when he lost the IC title to Bret Hart. Ziggler hit the rocker dropper for another two count. Ryder got his knees up when Ziggler charged in the corner. Swagger tried to interfere from outside the ring, but Ryder kicked him off and blocked a Zig Zag from behind. Ryder was still distracted by Swagger and nailed him with a drop kick, but was met with a super kick when he turned his attention back to Ziggler, allowing Ziggler to get the win.

Eve punched away at Phoenix. Phoenix was able to get untied and rolled outside the ring. Eve went outside, but her feet were swept from under her on the apron. Phoenix proceeded to press Eve and drop her on the outside and put a beatdown on the challenger, before bringing her back into the ring.

Phoenix then went for the Glam Slam, but Eve countered and rolled her up fro a two count. Phoenix continue on offense, but was met with a kick that floored her.
