Gail Kim vs. Natalya

Both women made their way to the ring tonight, getting good reactions from the crowd – Natalya's ovation was a little louder, coming from her native fans. Kim looked poised to pull an upset over the former Women's Champion, but after confronting Sarita last week, Natalya came into this match very focused on not faltering on her promise. The match went back and forth – and even spilled out to the ringside area for a moment – before Natalya locked in the Sharpshooter. However, Kim had the resolve to fight her way to the ropes, and break the submission. Annoyed, and eager to end the match, Natalya quickly locked the Sharpshooter on again, forcing Kim to tap out.

Natalya made Gail Kim submit to the Sharpshooter in 0:15:28.
Rating: ¾

After the match, Natalya grabbed a microphone, and told Sarita that she wasn't being funny – or cute – when she said she was coming for Sarita's title. Natalya said that Sarita's days as Champion are numbered, because the title was taken away from Natalya too soon. This brought out Sarita – and a loud ovation from the crowd – who told Natalya that she can't win the title by running her mouth; and that the only way to see who was truly better was in the ring. Sarita said that all Natalya had to do was name a time and place, and she'd be happy to put the belt on the line. Sarita walked off-stage as Natalya glared at her from the middle of the ring.

Backstage, Velvet Sky confronts Angelina Love, and says that she took what Love said last week to heart. Velvet said that, over the past couple weeks, she's been the one who has gone out to the ring and shown what she can do, and that she has enjoyed every second of it. Velvet said she never had the chance to hold a title before, on her own, and that even being “this close” is great. Velvet said that she wants to be the best wrestler in the HWL, and it's thanks to Angelina that she's taking things more seriously. But, Velvet wondered when Angelina was going to take her own advice. Velvet turned and walked off as Angelina looked off into the distance…

X-Division Champion, D'Angelo Dinero, is seen entering the arena. The crowd gave him a nice response, and Josh Matthews and Scott Michaels hyped up the tag team main event for tonight.

Steve Corino vs. Tyson Kidd (w/Natalya)

The display of Canadian talent continued in this match, as both men were welcomed with a mixed reaction from the crowd. Corino, the newest member of the HWL roster, had to worry about Kidd – and Natalya outside of the ring. However, because of events that took place last week, Kidd appeared to be concerned about Natalya's actions as well. Natalya did get invovled in the match, distracting Corino as Kidd recovered on the outside, before sliding back into the ring. Kidd took advantage of the distraction and connected with a beautiful dropkick, but was unable to put Corino away. As the match continued, Kidd was seen getting more and more frustrated, and it eventually caught up to him as Corino hit the Sliding Lariat to pick up the 1-2-3!

Steve Corino pinned Tyson Kidd with the Sliding Lariat in 0:11:40.
Rating: *** ¾

After the match, Corino slid out of the ring and celebrated his victory as Natalya entered the ring. She tried to help Kidd to his feet, but was pushed away before Kidd rolled under the bottom rope. Holding his jaw, Kidd made his way back up the ramp, as Natalya stood in the center of the ring, holding her arms out in question.

Commercial Break

HWL Heavyweight Champion, Desmond Wolfe, came out to the ring as Anarchy returned from commercials. Wolfe carried the Heavyweight Title with him, but after entering the ring, he laid the title over a turnbuckle, and said that he wanted to address “The Big Red Monster” Kane. Wolfe said that there was no denying the path of destruction he had created on his way to their match on Sunday night, but that the one person Kane wants to be afraid of him, isn't. Wolfe said that he's been in this position before, and that he'll remind Kane, that Wolfe beat him for the Heavyweight Title back in April. Wolfe said that he's already beaten Kane, and that already puts him at an advantage heading into Hostile Takeover. Wolfe said that there was a reason the Heavyweight Title found it's way back into his hands; because he doesn't back down from adversity; that he faces everything straight – just like the countless street fights he had to go through growing up in England. Wolfe said that Kane is no different then the bigger kids he fought growing up: they all thought they would have their way with Wolfe, but every one of them was proven wrong.

The lights then went out in the arena, as Kane made his way down the ramp, and entered the ring. He stared down at Wolfe, with a sadistic smile on his face, before grabbing the microphone away from the Heavyweight Champion. Kane said that he can't be compared to anyone that Wolfe grew up fighting, because all they wanted to do was hurt Wolfe, whereas Kane wants to end his career. Kane asked Wolfe if he believed his own words, saying that if Wolfe wasn't scared of Kane, he wouldn't have attacked him from behind last week. He said that's no way to get the advantage, because it proves that he has already gotten into Wolfe's head. Kane said that Wolfe has no idea what he's in for, and that later tonight is only going to be a small taste of what happens at Hostile Takeover; that is, if Wolfe has the guts to step into the ring with “The Big Red Monster” before Sunday night. Kane then left the ring as Wolfe looked on; the crowd sending a mixed reaction.

In the back, Alisha Hicks asked Rhino how he felt, a week after sustaining a concussion during his match with Cody Rhodes. Rhino said that his vision is still a little blurry, but it's nothing compared to what he'd gone through in the past. He said the trainers have told him that he should be ready to go by Sunday night – and that he won't miss out on taking the X-Division Title away from D'Angelo Dinero – but, he said that feels ready to go tonight, and he looks forward to getting his hands on Dinero before Hostile Takeover.

As Rhino walked away from Alisha, he is stopped by HWL Owner, Peter Bradshaw, who said that he had spoken directly to the trainers this morning, about Rhino's condition; and that they said that Sunday night would be the earliest he could step back into the ring. So, Bradshaw said that he would be looking out for the interest of the fans, and the interest of Rhino – who missed out on his last title shot due to injury – and replacing Rhino with Montel Vontavious Porter for tonight's main event. “The War Machine” glared at Bradshaw as the owner told Rhino that he'd thank him Sunday night.

The Usos (w/Tamina) vs. The British Invasion

Both of these teams got less then expected reactions from the crowd tonight, as they haven't had much ring time in the last few weeks. The Usos came into this match, having gone winless since debuting last month; and The British Invasion were trying to pick themselves back up after coming up short in their quest to take the Tag Team Titles from The Hart Dynasty, at Unbreakable.

The British Invasion came out, very aggressively, and looked like they were going to end the match quick; but, Jimmy and Jey used their speed to wear down their bigger opponents. Earlier in the match, Rob Terry had managed to bring a table into the ring, and that's where it sat for the entirety, as The British Invasion were unable to capitalize with the foreign object. Tamina got involved towards the end, holding Rob Terry's leg as Jimmy Uso connected with the Superfly Splash to pick up the surprise – and The Usos' first-ever – victory.

Rating: ** ¼

After the match, Rob Terry freed himself from Tamina's grasp, and entered the ring, attacking Jimmy Uso from behind! Jey entered the ring, to help his brother, was Terry easily tossed him over the top rope. “Big Rob” kept up the attack on Jimmy, giving himself enough time to set the table up in the corner. Magnus slowly made his way to his feet, as Big Rob pulled Jimmy Uso to his feet, and threw him into the table with a powerful irish whip. Big Rob and Magnus raised their arms in victory as the crowd booed. They left the ring, as Jey Uso and Tamina entered, checking on their injured partner.

Highlights are shown from last week's episode of “PCW Wrestling”, showing Ted DiBiase defeating Daniel Bryan for the PCW Heavyweight Title. It is announced, again, that there will be a tournament held tomorrow night, to determine the new PCW Heavyweight Champion.

Commercial Break

Ted DiBiase was seen, walking around backstage, when he was confronted by Cody Rhodes. Rhodes wanted to know what DiBiase was thinking, claiming to be above the Tag Team Titles – and above the PCW Heavyweight Title – just weeks after getting onto Rhodes for not showing enough commitment. Rhodes said that, if nothing else, DiBiase was a hypocrite; and that there was no way they'd be teaming up from now on… because DiBiase proved that he couldn't be trusted. Rhodes turned to walk away, but was attacked from behind by DiBiase! DiBiase threw Rhodes into the cement wall, before landing repeated kicks into Rhodes's midsection. DiBiase then got into Rhodes's face, and told Cody that he was the weak link in Legacy. DiBiase said, that now, he doesn't have to worry about carrying Rhodes on his back. DiBiase got back to his feet and walked away as Rhodes held his chest in pain.

Yoshi Tatsu vs. Alex Shelley

Yoshi Tatsu was greeted by a mixed reaction from the crowd tonight, but it was clear who the crowd was behind when Alex Shelley made his way out to the ring. Just six days away from teaming up with Randy Orton – to take on the Hart Dynasty for the Tag Team Titles – Shelley found himself dealing with an opponent that has had his fair share of trouble impressing his tag team partner. Tonight, however, Shelley was the one making the good impression, as he picked up the victory, hitting the Sliced Bread #2.

Alex Shelley pinned Yoshi Tatsu with the Sliced Bread #2 in 0:13:38.
Rating: *** ¼

Backstage, The Hart Dynasty is shown walking out of the arena, when David Hart Smith abruptly stopped, and said that he had something on his chest that he needed to get off before they walked out of the building. He turned to Natalya, and said that he had been questioning her choices over the past two weeks – including tonight – when it come to interfering in Smith's and Kidd's matches. Smith said that, last week, Natalya cost them a match against Randy Orton and Alex Shelley. But then tonight, when Tyson was on the verge of losing, she stood at ringside and did absolutely nothing. Smith said that he knew Natalya was focusing on getting the Women's Title back around her waist, but he warned her to look at the big picture, and to make sure nothing happens Sunday night at Hostile Takeover. Smith and Kidd then walked outside, leaving Natalya dumbfounded.

A preview for Hostile Takeover is shown, announcing the matches that will take place during the event. The pay-per-view will take place in six days, live from the Rexall Place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada!

Montel Vontavious Porter/Kane vs. © D'Angelo Dinero/ © Desmond Wolfe

Earlier tonight, it was announced that Porter would be replacing the injured Rhino, but the crowd greeted him just the same as if it had been the number one contender for the X-Division Title. Kane came out to a tremendous roar of boos, and it was speculated as to how they would coexist as a team, after Kane defeated Porter to take away the number one contenders spot for the Heavyweight Title. They stood in the ring, saying nothing to each other as they awaited their opponents' arrival.

“The Pope” came out first, to a decent ovation from the crowd, carrying the X-Division Title over his shoulder. His made his way down the ramp, and stood at ringside – staring at Porter – as he waited for his partner.

The Heavyweight Champion was introduced next, and got a huge ovation from the crowd. But he didn't waste any time, as Wolfe and Dinero slid into the ring and the match began.

The match itself was very evenly fought, considering Kane's size and strength advantage, but neither team was willing to get their opponents an inch of room to put the match in their favor. MVP and Kane surprisingly worked well as a team tonight, and carried the advantage for a better part of the match. But, Dinero and Wolfe fought their way back, hoping to even things up, and send them into Hostile Takeover with some momentum. That momentum never came to the champions, as MVP connected with the Playmaker on “The Pope” to pick up the victory!

Montel Vontavious Porter & Kane defeated D'Angelo Dinero & Desmond Wolfe when MVP pinned Dinero with the Playmaker in 0:19:15.
Rating: *** ½

After the match, MVP stood victoriously over Dinero, as Kane kept Desmond Wolfe at bay. Kane joined MVP in the center of the ring as flames shot out from the ring posts. Anarchy went off the air as Wolfe stared at Kane from ringside…
