Winners by pin: AJ Styles & James Storm
AJ slips out of the ring immediately and looks dejected.
-We go back to Hogan's office. He wants someone to turn things up tonight in the ring. Ion tries to kiss up. Kid Kash says he is one of the toughest guys in the company. He says he's already beaten Hardy. Hogan wants to hear from Aries. Aries makes his case. We go to break.
-Samoa Joe responds to Devon's challenge in the back. He says Devon abandoned the TV Title because he couldn't handle it. It wasn't stolen. He accepts the challenge for next week.
-Douglas Williams comes to the ring. Joey Ryan stops on the ramp and tells Christy Hemme to go make him a sandwich. He proceeds to introduce his tag partner, Matt Morgan.
Matt Morgan vs. Douglas Williams
Morgan is wearing Hogan's old robe he wore against Andre the Giant at Shea Stadium. Morgan starts off strong against Williams. Morgan works Williams over in the corner and drops him in a side slam. Morgan stops and glares at the hard camera. Williams tries to fight back but gets caught in a chokeslam. Morgan is slow and methodical. Morgan measures Williams and connects with the Carbon Footprint for the win.
Winner by pin: Matt Morgan
-D-Lo and Bruce Prichard try to locate Al Snow in the back. D-Lo offers to fill in for Snow's Gut Check decision. We go to commercial.
-We return to the ring for the Gut Check results. Borash welcomes Wes Briscoe to the ring. Bruce Prichard asks for the mic and says Al Snow is conspicuous by his absence and nobody has heard from him. He says D-Lo is taking his place. Bruce says he has traveled the world with Wes' father and he has watched him grow into a man. Bruce says his performance wasn't the greatest, but he says yes. Taz also puts Wes over and says it means a great deal that Angle has vouched for him. He, however, respectfully says no. Borash lets Wes cut a promo to convince D-Lo. Wes thanks both Taz and Bruce. He says since he was a little kid, he wanted to be in this ring. He says he's doing this for his family and fans. He gets teary-eyed as he says he's doing it for his uncle Jack. He fights back tears as he asks D-Lo for a chance. D-Lo pauses as the crowd chants, "YES!" D-Lo thanks Taz and Bruce for the opportunity. He says Wes' match left him conflicted. He says if he is good enough for Bruce Prichard, then Wes is good enough for him. He says yes. Wes is beside himself with excitement as Garret Bischoff and Kurt Angle come down to congratulate him.
-We go to Hogan's office as he is confronted by Bully Ray. Bully asks if Aries offended him. He says if Hogan wanted Aries' head kicked in, why didn't he come to Bully and talk to him face to face. Bully says for the first time maybe Hogan is confusing business with personal. Hogan says maybe it's Bully who is doing that. We go to break.
-We see a promo with Jeff Hardy who will be on Ink Master on Tuesday.
-ODB talks about Eric Young in the back. She says he is in the hospital. She says she can't do this and leaves.
-We go to a rundown of the Final Resolution card.
-Aries tells Hogan behind the entrance curtain that he did all this so he could get back the X-Division Title and use it as the key to get back his World Title. Hogan thanks him for waking him up. He says it's time for some serious dental work courtesy of Rob Van Dam. Aries makes his way through the curtain and to the ring. RVD enters.
