Jeremy Borash and Christy Hemme are in the ring with a giant check and drum of 24 balls with the names of the participants in the tournament.
The winners go into a gauntlet with the winner earning $100,000.
Match Number One: James Storm and Christian York versus Gunner and Crimson
Storm and York win after Storm hits Gunner with Last Call.
After the match, Christy interviewed York and Storm. York reminded Storm it is every man for themselves in the gauntlet. Storm pointed out how much beer he can buy with $100,000.
Match Number Two: Jessie Godderz and Mr. Anderson versus Douglas Williams and Kid Kash
Anderson and Godderz win after some tension between the partners. Anderson gave Godderz a Mic Check and then pinned Kash with an inside cradle.
A lot of comedy in this match.
Match Number Three: Christopher Daniels and Samoa Joe versus Chavo Guerrero and Rob Van Dam
Samoa Joe and Christopher Daniels win after Joe gives Van Dam a muscle buster when he stops Van Dam from hitting a Five Star Frog Splash.
Match Number Four: Robbie E and Zema Ion versus Bobby Roode and Joseph Park
Park says that he is honored to team with a former World Champ and he suggests they be called Law and Order.
Roode hates the name and he tells Tons of Fun to sit in the corner and watch. He doesn’t need Park’s help
Park and Roode win when Park freaks out and takes care of Robbie and Ion. He ‘goes back’ to Joseph and Roode tags in and covers Ion for the win.
After the match, Park wants a hug but Roode refuses.

Match Number Five: Hernandez and Alex Silva versus Devon and D.O.C.
D.O.C. and Devon win after D.O.C. gives Silva a chokeslam.
Match Number Six: Robbie T and Matt Morgan versus Joey Ryan and Al Snow
Morgan and Ryan made sure not to face each other until Al Snow and Robbie T conspired to get Morgan and Ryan in the ring. Ryan with feeble forearms and then Morgan with the Carbon Footprint for the three count.
The 12 men in the gauntlet are:
Match Number Seven: Joker’s Wild Gauntlet
The six winning teams were in a gauntlet for $100,000.
Order of entry:
The last four were Roode, Devon, Storm, and Morgan. Storm eliminated Morgan. Mike Knox came out to help Devon and he pulled Roode through the middle ropes. Storm eliminated Devon when interference backfired. Roode tries to eliminate Storm but Storm skinned the cat and he hit a Codebreaker on Roode that sent him to the apron. Storm eliminated Roode with the Last Call superkick.
Roode was presented the big check by Christy Hemme and So Cal Val. Storm then went into the crowd to celebrate with the fans.
