Winner: Magnus and Samoe Joe
This crowd goes nuts as the two men celebrate in the ring. We replay some of the highlights. I can't get over how great this crowd is, and to think I thought Raw's crowd Monday was great.
We see Eric Bischoff arriving backstage, and the announcers put over the possibility of finding out who Garrett Bischoff's trainer is tonight. But first, we go to our second commercial break.
We come back to Eric Bischoff's music. Saw a sign in the crowd that says "TV-PG Sucks." Bischoff gets some heat as he's on his way to the ring, but a lot of fans are bowing to him haha. Oh wow, some little kid is flipping him off in the crowd. Bischoff acts like he's going to flip the kid off, but thinks better of it. Bischoff gets some cheap heat, calling them uncivilized, then recaps the recent story between him and his son, Garrett. He says he's going to burst his son's bubble tonight with a burst of reality. He asks him to come to the ring, and Garrett complies. Eric tells him to enjoy this moment because it's likely to be his last. He says Garrett's goals became fantasy, and for him to think for a second that he's going to bring a trainer in like "him" then it's just a waste of time because "he's" a coward, and won't do anything for Garrett. He says it was a bad choice.
Garrett says he's so sorry that Eric is so upset about his trainer, but if he has such a problem with it, why doesn't he take it up with "him." Eric says he's delusional because everyone here knows he's not coming here tonight. Garrett gets a phone call in the middle of Eric's tirade. Garrett has a disappointed look on his face, and Eric starts to smile. Garrett hangs up and Eric gloats. Garrett says when Eric is right he's right, but when he's wrong, he's so wrong because his trainer is in the building and he'll see Eric later tonight. Garrett leaves the ring, and Eric has a worried look on his face. Up next, Mark Haskins faces X Division Champion, Austin Aries. They also plug Hulk Hogan returning, which leads me to believe he's not Garrett's trainer after all. We go to commercial.
We come back with a video package about Mark Haskins. Most of these clips are from house shows since he's only had like 3 TV matches, and one PPV match. Haskins is out first for his match against Aries. Aries gets a good reaction from the crowd.
Mark Haskins vs Austin Aries
Some good chain wrestling to start things off, with Aries having the obvious control. Aries cockily lays along the ring ropes before Haskins gets up. Haskins looks pretty nervous actually as there's some Austin Aries chants that break out. Aries and Haskins get in a shoving match, and Aries sneds Haskins out of the ring, but he skins the cat into a Headscissors, followed by a one-legged Dropkick. Now it's Aries's turn to skin the cat, but he's met with a Dropkick, sending him out of the ring. Haskins goes for a Springboard, but Aries pushes him, causing him to land awkwardly on the ropes. Aries goes up top and hits a Double Axe Handle onto Haskins outside the ring. Aries now hits a Springboard Somersault, followed by an elbow for a two count. Aries sets up Haskins for a Superplex, but Haskins pushes him off. As Haskins clibs up, Aries trips him. Haskins is able to take control again after a missed Dropkick and he Monkey Flips Aries. He goes for a second, but Aries reverses. Haskins is able to hit a double springboard crossbody for a two count. Haskins with an impressive Cutter for another two count. The crowd again chants for Aries as Haskins goes for a Shooting Star Press. Reminiscient of Lesnar at WrestleMania XIX, he botches it, though not that bad. Aries hits a Brainbuster, then locks on the Horns of Aries for the submission victory.
