Winners: Ricardo Rodriguez and Beth Phoenix
- After the match, Ricardo brags in the ring about the win. Santino comes in and rips off his shirt, revealing a tight Justin Bieber t-shirt underneath. Santino tends to Layla to end the segment.
- David Otunga is backstage with Vince McMahon. Otunga says if Laurinaitis does get fired, he should be the replacement. Vince doesn't like the way Otunga puckers up and doesn't like lawyers. Kofi Kingston runs in and is looking for Laurinaitis. Kofi wants Big Show because he took Truth out. Laurinaitis walks in and says Truth isn't doing good. Laurinaitis makes Kofi vs. Show inside a steel cage for tonight. Kofi walks off and Vince says that's not a bad idea. We see Daniel Bryan walking backstage as we go back to break.
- Back from the break and out comes Daniel Bryan. He says he is nothing like CM Punk or Kane. He says they both have a weakness in the form of AJ Lee. Bryan says Punk is jealous of him and trying to make him jealous by getting with his ex-girlfriend. Bryan says Kane thinks he's getting to second base with a woman when she looks him in the eye and doesn't vomit. Bryan says AJ is still in love with him. Bryan says he's only interested in the WWE Title and will get it this Sunday. Bryan starts chanting YES when CM Punk's music hits and out he comes to the stage.
Punk walks to the ring and says AJ is pretty cool. He says she is way out of Bryan's league and inside the ring, Bryan isn't even close to Punk's league. Punk says AJ is crazy but he digs crazy chicks. Punk says regardless of who he has to beat, he's walking out WWE Champion on Sunday. Bryan says he used to respect Punk but he has changed. Bryan says Punk is the biggest sellout in WWE. Punk says he spoke his mind last summer but he has not changed one bit. Punk says he achieved success on his own terms but can't say the same thing for Bryan. Punk runs down Bryan and calls him names. Punk goes on until Kane's music hits and out he comes.
Kane comes out and talks about some of the crazy things he's done over the years. Kane says his pipebombs are actual pipebombs and that's why he will leave No Way Out with the WWE Title. AJ comes down in a CM Punk t-shirt and wants them to stop arguing. AJ says she looked into Kane's eyes last week and she saw that he actually had a heart. AJ admits she hasn't gotten over Bryan, her first true love. She looks at Punk and smiles now. She says he is the coolest guy she's ever known in her entire life. AJ says she knows the best man will win on Sunday. Laurinaitis appears on the big screen and says we're going to have a first. He announces Bryan and Kane vs. Punk and AJ for tonight. AJ looks worried as she talks it over with Punk.
- We see footage from earlier tonight when Vince McMahon threatened to fire John Laurinaitis if he's not impressed with tonight's matches.
- Up next is the #1 contender's match. Back to commercial.
The winner of this one will face World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus at No Way Out. Out first comes the WWE Intercontinental Champion Christian. The Great Khali is out next. Vickie Guerrero hits the stage next to introduce Dolph Ziggler and Jack Swagger.
