She thinks he is doing a great job with the show. She wants a match with Maxine. Maxine shows-up. She says Kaitlyn in prettier when her mouth is shut. Maxine asks to get off the show, she puts her hand in Kaitlyn's face, they argue. Striker says they will get a chance to settle this next week. He says, in the meantime if Maxine wants off the show, she should try showing some respect. Maxine says Reks and Hawkins were right that he is a joke. She tells Kaitlyn to keep her mouth shut and walks away. Kaitlyn says he is not a joke, high-fives him, thanks him, and leaves. Striker seems to want her to hang-out. They show a video package of the Cena-Eve-Ryder fiasco.
Tyson Kidd is in his locker room, on the phone with Trent Barreta. He wishes him a speedy recovery. Michael McGillicutty shows-up and is complaining that he drove through a blizzard, and he is not even booked on the show. Kidd tells him to relax. McGillicutty says they have been friends since they were kids; he didn't like him then, and he doesn't like him now. He says Kidd wants to be like him and Dibiase and the Usos; WWE is in their blood, he says. Kidd challenges him to a match next week; McGillicutty accepts. The main event is next.
Alex Riley vs. Titus O'Neil
Darren Young has joined the announce booth. Young says he and O'Neil haven't resolved their differences, but they see eye-to-eye; he like O'Neil's bark now. Young says he is "Mr. No Days Off." He is trying to perfect his craft. Young supports O'Neil's new attitude; he says he also gives to charity, but only as a tax write-off. Regal says O'Neil was part of The International Step Show in Florida with Doug E. Fresh; Regal says he doesn't know who that is. Regal rants negatively about charity-work, like Sting (singer) and Bono as Riley throws O'Neil to the outside. O'Neil jumps right up. Back in the ring, A-Ry hits a clothesline; O'Neil goes down. A-Ry attempts a back-flip, is countered and thrown over the top rope. Young gets up and pretends to look concerned for A-Ry. Percy Watson makes his way to ringside. Young and O'Neil slap hands. O'Neil drives A-Ry, face-first, into the announce table a couple of times.
O'Neil and A-Ry are back in the ring. Young asks what Watson is doing on his show. They bicker a bit. O'Neil has the upper-hand on A-Ry. He gets a near-fall, and tells the ref to count faster. Matthews says O'Neil has been successful since his attitude change. Watson says the momentum will shift soon; Regal disagrees. Regal asks Watson if he thinks Watson, himself is aggressive enough. He says he could be more. A-Ry hits some offense; O'Neil bumps around for him. Regal tries to get back to the action. A-Ry starts punching O'Neil in the head on the second turnbuckle; the crowd counts along. After number 7, O'Neil power-bombs him. He puts both feet on the middle rope for leverage, and pins A-Ry. Watson goes in the ring to protest; Young and O'Neil celebrate on the outside.
Winner: Titus O'Neil (5:45)
