We see a video of Antonio Cesaro in out Memphis from earlier in the day. He is in front of Sun Studio. He berates "country bumpkins" like Elvis.
Antonio Cesaro vs. Ted Dibiase
USA chants as we start things off. Dibiase hits a nice dropkick but Cesaro tosses him over the top. Josh talks about the Dibiase Posse. He still does those? Cesaro sends Ted into the steel post and gets 2 in the ring. Dibiase gets an opening and hits a flurry for 2. Ted gets his boot up in corner and comes off the 2nd rope but Cesaro catches him with an uppercut in mid-air. Cesaro hits the Gotch-Style Neutralizer for the win.
Winner by pin: Antonio Cesaro
We go to commercial.
3MB enter the ring as we see some of their recent highlights. They cut a promo. Brodus Clay comes to the ring.

Matt Striker interviews Wade Barrett in the locker room about his match with Sheamus tonight. Barrett says there is a misconception in WWE that Sheamus is tough but he is really very stupid. He basically says Sheamus wants no parts of him. Barrett warns Big Show also and says that when he beats Sheamus at Hell in a Cell, Barrett will want a repay of the favor. We go to commercial.
Eve has joined commentary as Natalya makes her entrance followed by Layla.
Natalya vs. Layla
Natalya hits a kick to the gut to start things off. They counter each other and Layla kicks her off the apron in front of Eve. Layla makes the mistake of focusing on Eve and Natalya takes over and sends her back in the ring. Natalya gets 2. Layla lands a big kick to the face as Eve speaks and director Kevin Dunn's camera cut barely catches it. Layla gets the pin.
Winner by pin: Layla
Layla and Eve trade looks.
Kaitlyn stares at her phone as Teddy approaches her with Eve's iPad. He says Kaitlyn can do whatever she wants to do with this information. She takes pictures with her iPhone.
The lumberjacks come to the ring as we go to break.
We're back as Wade Barrett makes is entrance and enters the ring through the lumberjacks. Sheamus comes out to stone-faced applause from Big Show at ringside in a hoodie.
Lumber Jack Match: Sheamus vs. Wade Barrett
Sheamus and Wade trade shots and counters to begin things. Sheamus focuses on the lumberjacks and Wade takes over. Barrett is thrown out and the lumberjacks throw him back in. JBL comically rips Josh for wondering what the lumberjacks would do. "What do you mean see what happens? They're going to throw him back in, that's what lumberjacks do." Funny. Sheamus hits clubbing blows to Barrett. Barrett turns things around and sends Sheamus hard into the corner and gets 2 as we go to commercial.
