Teddy Long comes out and says there will be a 20 Man Battle Royal tonight and the winner will face Del Rio at Extreme Rules in a Ladder Match.
They apparently just re-shot part of that segment as Long then returned and said that no one is presenting Del Rio with anything tonight.
Ezekiel Jackson defeated Kofi Kingston. The remainder of the Corre were all on commentary. Ezekiel dumped Kofi over the top onto them during the match. He took the mic and declared he was going to win the Battle Royal tonight. So, the match is still on, which means Teddy Long missed a line and they sent him back out so they can edit it back in.
Lay-Cool couples therapy. They bicker and Michelle McCool walks out.
