DX vs Legacy
We get a video package highlighting the feud between these two teams, which surprisingly includes some of DX's raunchier footage from the 90's. DX is out first with a slightly less impressive entrance than SummerSlam, but they still get a huge pop.
Hunter and Shawn did their usual prematch routine and the Montreal crowd loved it. However, when it came time for Hunter to deliver the dedication, they chanted, "You screwed Bret."
Hunter dedicated it to Montreal. He said he knows there was an incident a few years ago that some people can't let go of. Shawn was making a funny, uncomfortable facial expression. Hunter said it was all Shawn's fault. Funny. There were more boos when Hunter passed the mic to Shawn for his "If you're not down with that..." line, but the masses delivered the "suck it" line.
Things start out quickly with DX jumping Legacy and pounding on them in the corners. Rhodes is sent out to the floor and Dibiase falls victim to a face breaker and chop block. Rhodes is back in and he falls victim to a shin breaker and a chop block. The action spills outside and bear with me as this one will be mighty hard to cover.

Dibiase fights out and the cameras cut to Hunter and Rhodes who are fighting in front of a crowd going nuts.
HBK and HHH lock in dual figure fours, but Legacy is able to fight out. The crowd starts an Ole chant (something that makes me think of El Generico). The fight goes back into the arena proper and all four men start the fight down the staircase.
Both members of DX have submissions locked in again, but neither man submits. DX clotheslines Legacy over the ringside barricade and the action spills back into the ringside area. Hunter grabs a chair and thrusts it into Cody's throat, before pulling Cody through the chair and locking in a modified sharpshooter.

Michaels turns his attention to Rhodes, but Rhodes surprises him with an ankle lock. HBK gets to the ropes but it doesn't break the submission, Michaels gets to a single leg, still in the ankle lock, fights off Dibiase, sends Ted to the outside and hits Rhodes with a superkick.
Cameras show Hunter stirring in the back, as Rhodes and HBK make their way to their feet. Michaels locks in the figure four on Rhodes, but Dibiase is in to break up yet another submission attempt.

Josh Matthews tries to get a reaction from Orton about Legacy's victory over DX. Orton tells Matthews if he wants to talk to him to have a seat. Matthews asks if Orton has a reaction to Leagacy's victory. Orton says he has no reaction because he knew Legacy would win. Matthews tries to ask another question, but Orton cuts him off. Matthews tries to ask him a question again, but Orton interrupts, saying that John Cena says that can't say the words 'I quit'. Orton says Cena can't know that, he can't be sure. Orton says tonight he's going to make Cena feel like every bone in his body is about to shatter. Orton gets in Matthews face and tells him to watch his match tonight, because John Cena says one thing, but tonight he's going to make him say something else. Tonight he'll make him say 'I Quit'.

Eve is backstage with CM Punk. She asks him about his last minute thoughts before his match with the Undertaker. Punk says no one gives him a chance. He says it's funny because no one gave him a chance at SummerSlam, but he proved everyone wrong and then he got rid of Jeff for good. Punk says that three weeks later, Hardy did what he does. Punk says it's all in black in white. He says that you'll never see his mug shot on TV.

The lights go out and Punk freaks out, it turns out to be Jimmy Wang Yang who's playing a prank. Yang wishes Punk luck, and shakes his hand, but Punk takes out Yang, before saying that the Undertaker should be worried about him.
