Titus grabs the mic and comments on the replay: "That's good work right there." He says, "Percy, what we have here is a failure to communicate." He gets in the ring where Watson is still down selling the move. Titus says Watson has been going around telling people he deserves a rematch against him. He says he'll get his match next week. He says that he better be more aggressive than ever or else he is going to be just like the fans in attendance: a loser. Regal asks if Titus is making matches now. Titus says, "This is my show," as he walks up the ramp.
Next up is Derrick Bateman vs. Heath Slater.

Alicia Fox, Kaitlyn, and Justin Gabriel are sitting in chairs in the ring. Derrick Bateman comes out. Matthews says he seems confused, Regal says he always seems confused when he looks at Bateman. Kaitlyn tells Bateman he in a safe place: "The Trust Tree." Bateman says it's actually a ring and he's scheduled for a match. Gabriel says that he doesn't. Kaitlyn says it is an intervention. Bateman asks, what for? He says he has a clean bill of health. Alicia says, "5' 5" of pure evil." Bateman says she must be talking about Trent Barreta because she can't be talking about Maxine; "She's a sweetheart, she's a peach." Gabriel says she is a piranha and that he needs to lose her. Gabriel tells him to think back to how happy he was when he was single. Alicia says court appointed therapist is crazy. Kaitlyn tells him to watch the Titantron. They show a montage of Bateman and Maxine's history; he is 'narrating' through past interviews, praising her, as they show the different crazy things she's done to him. Kaitlyn asks him if that's a healthy relationship and that admitting is the first step. Bateman says Maxine is OK at home and he doesn't want to die alone. He says, "I guess we're in love." Kaitlyn says he's being used. She says getting kissed doesn't mean love. Bateman sarcastically calls her 'love guru,' and asks her what is love then. Kaitlyn grabs him, swings him into her arms and plants one on him, then pushes him to the mat; Maxine runs to the ring and attacks her. They pull them apart, Maxine tries to throw a chair, she then starts hitting Bateman. Gabriel restrains her. Maxine leaves; Matthews reminds us that Maxine vs. Kaitlyn is the main-event.
