Alex Riley was out next. Primo, Drew McIntyre, Santino, and Justin Gabriel were left in the ring. Santino pulled out The Cobra and then he was eliminated just like that after one cobra chop. Drew, Primo, and Justin were the final three. Justin eliminated McIntrye and Primo to win the battle royal and will face Wade Barrett tonight for the Intercontinental Championship later in the show.

Wade Barrett was interviewed backstage about his match tonight. He came out to a half decent pop mixed with a few boos here and there. Justin Gabriel was out next to a few cheers but it seemed like most fans were not interested.
2. Wade Barrett defeated Justin Gabriel to retain the Intercontinental Title. Scott Armstrong was the official for this match. A pretty decent match but the crowd was dead at times. The momentum picked up and the crowd got into it. Wade Barrett won by pinfall. It was a decent match for Main Event.
Michael Cole went going ape shit on the commentary from what George tell, but he couldn't make out what he was saying. A chant for JBL went through the arena and JBL acknowledged it from his broadcast chair.
