The Revival are in the ring, ready for a match with Anderson and Gallows.

Before this tag match can begin, The Uso’s come onto the stage. They mock The Revival for calling themselves “top guys” and “the hottest tag team in WWE”. They say they have something to help them out, it’s like Icey Hot but it’s Ucey Hot. It’s some sort of powder that makes you itch and burn. Just about then, Dash and Dawson start losing their minds, using the turnbuckles to scratch themselves and rolling around the ring. The Uso’s put the cream in their ring gear. They give them water, which they pour down their trunks. The Uso’s tell them the water was for drinking, because pouring it on the affected area makes it worse. Dawson then flips over and rolls around like the red devil from Cow & Chicken. The Uso’s are left laughing on the stage. Yeah, no-one can understand why they want to leave.

Kofi Kingston is seen backstage. He says a lot of people thought his journey was impossible but he proved it was possible. He says Bryan thinks he can correct the course, but that’s actually what he’s doing. He says he’s sending Bryan’s yapping behind back to where it came from.

No Way Jose and his conga line make their entrance. Lars Sullivan’s music hits and he makes his way to the ring – worth pointing out that’s at least five SmackDown Superstars on Raw tonight, so much for Vince’s three at certain times. Lars attacks the conga line at ringside. No Way Jose attacks him at ringside but gets tossed into the crowd. He slams one of the party-goers into the barricade, military presses another into the ring post, then sends the other into the ring. Jose returns and attacks but Lars hits him with the running sit-out powerbomb.

*Commercial Break*

We see Vince backstage on the phone, explaining that the Wild Card rule is definitely just three Superstars, saying that Elias was just with Shane so he didn’t count. Lars Sullivan walks in and stares at Vince, who then lifts the phone to his ear again and says “let’s make it four”.
