Lethal got the Lethal Injection on Cassidy, but Cassidy rolled out of the ring before Lethal could pin him. Taylor dumped his popcorn on Dutt. The referee came out to admonish Dutt. While that was happening, Jarrett tried to slip Lethal his guitar, but Danhausen took it from Jarrett. Lethal got back in the ring and Cassidy hit him with the Orange Punch and pinned him. All of them entered the ring. Jarrett attempted to hit Cassidy with the guitar, but Dutt stopped him as he didn't want to get fired for those actions.

He told Danielson that he may be a dragon, but a dragon is no match for a monster.

Saraya told Shida to stay back here.
