King dances and celebrates his way up the ramp.
-Bully Ray enters Hogan's office and wants to know if Hogan has had a change of heart. Hogan gets in his face and says Bully's sneaky behavior has made him not change his mind. Bully says maybe Brooke is the one who likes him. Bully says Brooke was apologizing to him for her dad when they were caught sitting on a couch. Hogan says if that's the case then Bully has no business talking to Brooke again. Bully throws his bloody towel at Hogan and says he bled for him. They continue to have a very heated and impressive exchange. Bully says what Brooke does is her business and for Hogan to get over it. Nice segment. We go to break.
Jesse w/ Tara vs. Bully Ray
Bully comes down to the ring and chases Jesse and Tara around the ring. Bully catches Jesse in the ring and starts to steamroll him. Jesse hits chops that Bully no-sells.

-Austin Aries tells the camera to back off in the back. He is on his way to the ring as we go to commercial.
-We return to footage from Final Resolution involving Roode and Hardy.
-We go to the ring as Austin Aries makes his entrance. Aries says he was the man that trumped Roode's offer to Aces & 8's. He says Hogan tossed him aside after he did Hogan's dirty work and jumped on the Hardy bandwagon. Hardy's music hits and he walks halfway down the ramp. He says all Aries has to do is ask. Aries says apparently he has to climb ladders and jump though hoops. Hardy gets in the ring and says next week is Championship Thursday. He says Hardy-Aries 3 for the World Title, next week.
