*William Regal came out towards the end of the match and replaced the current referee with special guest referee JBL. Cena immediately attacked JBL and knocked him out of the ring, but JBL would come back in and hit the big boot on John Cena while Cena had Randy Orton set up for the F-U. JBL then fast counted for Orton.

Jeff Hardy returned from his 60-Day Suspension for failing a WWE Drug Test. He stated that he made a mistake.

After Cade & Murdoch won their match against Cryme Tyme, Cade had Murdoch sing, but would then hit Murdoch with a right hand (followed by several more), thus officially ending the tag team.
