Khali brings Epico in over the top and takes over with chops to the chest. Khali tags Hornswoggle in for some chops too. Hornswoggle hits Stunners on both Primo and Epico but Primo hits him with a shoulderblock. They continue to dominate Hornswoggle. Hornswoggle comes back and slips under Epico to tag Khali. Primo jumps in and Khali takes care of him too. Khali hits a big chop the head of Primo for the win.
Winners by pin: The Great Khali, Natalya, & Hornswoggle
- Striker asks Kofi if his win on Wednesday over Barrett has given him any momentum going into tonight. Kofi says this is not about momentum. This might be his last shot and he's got his back against the wall but he's used to that. He says Wade will run into Trouble in Paradise.
