1 - ZACK RYDER & SANTINO MARELLA vs. HEATH SLATER & JINDER MAHAL (w/Drew McIntyre) - Tag Team match
Pre-match, 3MB show off their goofy "3MB" hand signs, and Matt Striker claims that McIntyre has a "managerial license," so he can be ringside.
Slater starts off with his legendary armdrag and air guitar celebration. Ryder with arm drags of his own. Lots of back and forth and Marella comes in. Marella shows off some new offensive moves on Slater, and is much less humorous. Marella continues to show off grappling against Mahal. Striker claims that his sister is a big Slater fan. Mahal ducks a cross-body and Ryder goes flying over the ropes.
Ryder is taking a beating in the corner out of the break. Striker: "Jinder Mahal is the Mick Mars of 3MB, not the prettiest to look at but the anchor that holds them together." I can't remember the last time someone made a reference to Mick Mars other than myself. The crowd can't rally Ryder out of the corner. Ryder flips over a suplex, counters with a neckbreaker, and there's a double tag. Marella unloads on Slater with traditional offense. Mahal breaks up a tag but gets sent ringside. McIntyre and Mahal eat Cobras, but the distraction lets Slater land the Smash Hit for the win.
WINNERS: Heath Slater and Jinder Mahal in 8:00. This match was far more fun than it had any right to be, thanks to the antics of all involved. Stanford and Striker seemed to be competing to see who can come up with the most ridiculous commentary regarding 3MB, saying things so obviously implausible as if only four people watch Superstars.
2 - JUSTIN GABRIEL (w/Tyson Kidd) vs. DARREN YOUNG (w/Titus O'Neil)
Gabriel uses his technical skill and speed to control Young from the start. Young finally gets some traction with right hands, but Gabriel uses a head scissors to send Young to the outside. O'Neil produces a whistle to chastise the crowd with.
Young has Gabriel in jeopardy. Gabriel tries a few sudden covers but Young survives and returns to the attack. Gabriel with big kicks and Young is reeling. Young with offense on the apron. He calls for the end, but Gabriel slips through and they trade pin attempts for nearfalls. Big springboard moonsault gives Gabriel the win.
WINNER: Justin Gabriel in 8:05. Very good match. O'Neil threatened to take too much attention away from the action with his whistle, though.
