3. Jinder Mahal def. Ezekiel Jackson-submission.
1. Kofi Kingston vs. Curt Hawkins (w/Tyler Reks).
Scott Stanford tells us that Kofi & Hawkins are actually good friends backstage, but we're not sure if that extends to Reks. I'd imagine it would. And so it is that the opener could've gone either way. Kofi teased Trouble in Paradise within the first minute, but Hawkins bailed. Reks didn't really do anything, save for a momentary distraction enabling Hawkins to hit a inverted hot shot that sent Kingston to the floor. Unfortunately for Hawkins, he couldn't cash it in. Kofi goes on offense. Frog crossbody gets 2. SOS gets 2 only because Hawkins got his hand on the rope in the nick of time. Kofi reverses a whip and nails Trouble in Paradise. End of story. Winner: Kofi Kingston.
2. Brie Bella (w/Nikki) vs. Kelly Kelly.
Last week, Kelly's distraction enabled Nikki to upset Divas champ Beth Phoenix on Smackdown. Six nights later, not showing any appreciation, Brie faces Kelly, and it seems the sisters are back on the same page. Nikki did nothing, and only because Kelly made sure she couldn't. The Kelly-Go-Round leaves Brie dizzy long enough for Kelly to hit the handspring elbow and the booty call (stinkface). Bulldog faceplant gets 2. Brie tries to come back, but the Bella Buster (X-Factor) is blocked, and Kelly jackknifes into the cover for the win. Winner: Kelly Kelly.
3. Jinder Mahal vs. Ezekiel Jackson.
It wasn't so long ago these two were matched on this very program, and the result is exactly the same. Mahal weathers the storm of Jackson's offense. A well placed knee to the back puts Zeke down, and before he can move, Mahal applies the Mahalian (Camel) Clutch. Zeke taps again. Winner: Jinder Mahal.
The show closes with the Brock Lesnar-John Cena battle royal from Raw.
