After the intro we go straight to Santino's entrance. The Miz is seated at commentary next to Josh Mathews. Heath Slater makes his entrance.
Santino vs. Heath Slater
Santino tries to attack early with a Cobra maneuver. Slater runs away. Slater pushes Santino but ducks out of the ring from the Cobra again. Slater plays air-guitar and Santino answers back with the trombone. Then they trade. Santino then plays air-flute, while Slater plays the drums. Santino starts to play air-piano, while Slater "pulls out" his air-harmonica. Santino goes from a violin to a cello and Slater just does a weird knee-dance. Slater charges out of the corner but Santino arm-drags him out of the ring. Slater goes and protests to the Miz as we go to commercial.
Miz does a PSA to not try this at home.
We're back and Santino misses with a dropkick in the ring. Slater drops a knee and applies a body scissors. Santino rolls on top for a 2. Slater sends Santino from corner to corner and charges in but we don't see the move. Slater gets 1. Santino favors his mid-section and complains that he can't breathe. Slater goes back to the body scissors. Santino tickles Slater under his arms to get free. That's a 25 year first for me. Slater plays his air-guitar and simultaneously slaps Santino in the back of the head and goes back to the body scissors. Santino breaks free and starts his Cobra routine. Slater ducks the Cobra several times but gets struck on his knee. Santino rolls him up from behind for the win.
Winner by pin: Santino

We go to the 3rd Degree: What was your favorite sport growing up? Cena says 'football.' Daniel Bryan says he doesn't have a favorite because he was a 'jack of all trades.' Kofi says he played defense because he has small hands and couldn't catch the ball. A very plain-looking, out-of-character Beth Phoenix says tennis. We keep going back to Bryan listing all the things he excelled at. Kaitlyn says soccer. Ziggler says wrestling.
