Rene Young is then backstage with Summer Rae. Summer says no one should feel bad for her injury. She says Paige asked for the match, so it's her fault she got hurt.

Tyson Kidd then comes out to the ring on crutches to give an injury update. He talks about how he got hurt, and how his reconstructive knee surgery went. He promises he will be back.
He is then asked how he felt when CM Punk called him an underappreciated workhorse on Raw. Kidd says love him or hate him, you have to respect him. He says he felt flattered when Punk said that. Kidd says the term workhorse is a mentality and a way of life for him. He says it was instilled in him in the Hart Dungeon.
Leo Kruger then comes out and says Kidd is like a wounded animal, weak and vulnerable. He says Kidd should have stayed away. Kruger gets in the ring and kicks away one of Kidd's crutches. He picks it up as if he is about to hit Kidd, and Justin Gabriel runs out for the save.
