This week's show begins with William Regal making his way to the ring. Santino is on commentary with Josh Mathews. R-Truth is out next.
William Regal vs. R-Truth
Santino says Little Jimmy isn't imaginary, he's invisible. Truth gets the crowd riled up and opens the ropes for Little Jimmy to exit the ring. They lock up and trade armbars. Truth takes Regal down but he does a kip-up. Truth hits a drop toe-hold and does a split. Apparently Little Jimmy comes back in the ring as Truth high-fives and butt-bumps with him. Regal warns Little Jimmy and Truth has to hold his friend back. We cut to Santino and Josh for the next spot and back to the ring as Regal points to Jimmy at ringside as Santino hides/consoles the Little guy. Truth hits a slam in the ring and gets 1. Regal takes over on Truth with priceless facial expressions. Truth fights up from an armbar and monkey flips Regal and hits a dropkick. Truth hits a body scissors and rolls through for the win.

Zack Ryder vs. Kofi Kingston
Kofi and Ryder lock up and Kofi backs him into the corner and does the Boom Boom Boom. Ryder repays the favor and does the Whoo Whoo Whoo. They lock up a third time and Kofi goes behind and pulls Ryder's headband over his eyes and Ryder stumbles around the ring. Kofi sends him in and Ryder bounces off the ropes and takes a spill on the mat. Kofi rolls him up for 2. Ryder rolls out of the ring to regroup. Ryder looks at his headband and then at Kofi and asks him if he's "serious, bro." Ryder hands his headband to his CoBro tag team partner, Santino, and they fist-bump.
Kofi opens the ropes for Ryder to re-enter the ring. Kofi holds out his hand and Ryder grabs it and pulls him into a pin for 2. Kofi asks him if he's serious. They exchange go-behinds and Ryder drop toe-holds Kofi into the corner but they don't show it. Ryder goes for the Boot in the corner but Kofi ducks out of the ring. Ryder slingshots over the top and to the floor but Kofi has it scouted and jumps in the ring and dives out but Ryder moves and Kofi lands on his feet on the apron. We go to commercial.
We're back as Ryder has a body scissors wrapped around Kofi in the ring. Kofi gets out and slingshots Ryder onto the apron. Ryder sunset flips into the ring and makes a cover for 2 and they exchange pins back and forth. Kofi starts to get his 2nd wind and begins his match-ending routine. They counter each other's finishers but Kofi comes off the top with a crossbody for the win.
