-Donovan Dijak is out for his TV Title match with Jay Lethal. If Dijak doesn't get signed by the WWE within a year, I'd be stunned. Lethal, Truth Martini, and J Diesel come out and Martini tells Dijak if he faces Lethal now he'll lose. They offer Dijak a spot in the House of Truth....and he accepts!
Dalton Castle comes out and cuts a great promo on Jay Lethal and challenges him to a match. Lethal accepts by attacking Castle

Jay Lethal (c) (w/ Truth Martini, Donovan Dijak & J Diesel) vs. Dalton Castle
Castle is doing pretty well until J Diesel distracts him, allowing Truth to clock Castle. Lethal follows up with an absolutely insane sequence where he does three dives back to back to back, making the crowd go nuts.
Back in the ring, the two trade punches and smacks, and Castle comes out the better of it. Castle hits a nice German Suplex that almost wins him the TV title, but Dijak yanks him out of the ring. Dijak hits Feast Your Eyes and sends him back in to a waiting Lethal who finishes him off with Lethal Injection.

Jacobs exits the ring, and looks like he's leaving. He sees Briscoe's title and gets motivated and heads back to the ring. He hits a couple of DDTs, a sliced bread and throws on a guillotine choke that Briscoe fights out of. Briscoe hits the Jay Driller and gets the pinfall.
