- Booker T is backstage walking as we go to commercial.
- Back from the break and out comes SmackDown General Manager Booker T for a World Championship Debate. The ring is set up with podiums. Booker introduces Big Show first and out he comes in a suit. World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus is out next.
Booker thanks them for joining him tonight. Booker lets Big Show do his opening statement first. The crowd boos. Show thanks Booker for the opportunity. He changes his mind and says this debate is completely ridiculous. Show says he's going to walk in at Hell In a Cell, knock Sheamus out and leave with the World Heavyweight Title. End of story, he says. Sheamus introduces himself and the crowd pops. Sheamus has a tweet from a fan and they ask what is the most challenging aspect of each opponent. Sheamus says he's most looking forward to the fight in this match. He talks about he's never faced a bigger and stronger opponent than Big Show. Sheamus says he has bad breath and body odor but his biggest concern is the match lasts over 45 seconds. Show gets upset now and says he smells fantastic. The next question is about who has the most devastating finisher. Show's podium just falls apart so he plays it off and knocks it down. Show asks if he can get another podium. This whole thing is starting to fall apart. Sheamus shows a Tout video of him wearing a Rey Mysterio mask. He says it's his cousin. Booker tells Sheamus this is a serious debate. Show says his patience only goes so far. Sheamus keeps rubbing in that Show had the World Title for 45 seconds. Finally they come face to face and drop the mics. They stare each other down ready to fight but Show leaves the ring as the crowd boos.
- We see Ryback walking backstage as we go to commercial.
Tensai vs. Ryback
Back from the break and Tensai is in the ring. Out comes Ryback for a rematch from Friday's SmackDown. Ryback gets a decent reaction from the crowd.
JR and Cole talk about how Jerry Lawler is doing better. The bell rings and here we go. They lock up and Ryback goes to a headlock. Ryback ducks a clothesline but Tensai drops him with a shoulder. Ryback pops up and they trade shots. Tensai comes out of the corner with a forearm shot. Tensai runs the ropes and Ryback catches him with a big powerslam. Tensai blocks with a headbutt but Ryback runs him over with a clothesline. Ryback can't hit his finisher the first time so he hits another big clothesline for the win.
