Late in the match, Yoshi had a near fall after a Shining Wizard style move. Yoshi got ready for a roundhouse kick, but Kidd escaped it and hit a Dangerous Buster on Yoshi. Yoshi kicked out of the pinfall. The close saw Kidd go for the Superplex but Yoshi headbutted him off the corner, then hit his flying spin kick for the pinfall win.

Winner: Yoshi Tatsu wins via pinfall over Tyson Kidd.

Trent Barreta vs. Darren Young

Striker said something about Barreta just rubs him the wrong way, as if he's "too happy." Striker also talked about how Barreta needs to be more of a jerk and develop an edge. Barreta nearly got the win after a reverse flip/moonsault onto Young from the corner. Young managed to kick out though.

Late in the match, Darren Young crotched Trent on the corner, then went up to fight. Barreta got the upperhand for a bit, but Young managed to get Trent onto his shoulders, then jumped off the corner to hit the Gutcheck for the win.

Winner: Darren Young wins via pinfall over Trent Barreta.

Alex Riley vs. JTG

JTG was accompanied by Tamina to the ring, while Stanford made jokes about JTG having a degree in "Fly-onomics" with a minor in "Chillin' Like a Villain." Early on JTG, shoved A-Ry in the face, prompting Riley to tackle him down and start an attack. Moments later, Riley got booted thanks to a distraction from Tamina at ringside.

Late in the match, JTG worked a headlock on Riley, but A-Ry fought to his feet and escaped it. JTG managed to elbow A-Ry out through the ropes, but as JTG poked his head out, A-Ry kicked him in the head. Riley got back in the ring and the ref counted as both guys struggled to get to their feet. Riley got the control back with punches and a few takedowns. He landed the huge Spinebuster on JTG , then hit the Final Score for the pinfall win. Stanford said Riley's working on another win streak now on Superstars.

Winner: Alex Riley wins via pinfall over JTG.

They showed the Raw Rebound highlights which featured John Laurinaitis setting up a series of 3 Gauntlet matches for CM Punk. JL said if any of the opponents in the Gauntlet defeated Punk, they'd get a WWE title shot next week on Raw. Punk asked for a match against Laurinaitis if he won them all, to which JL accepted.

Punk's opponents were Jack Swagger, Dolph Ziggler, and then Mark Henry. Punk defeated Swagger in the first match, but lost the second to Ziggler.  Interference from Swagger and a distraction from Laurinaitis helped Ziggler to win. Ziggler gets a WWE title match against Punk next week on Raw.

Air Boom vs. Curt Hawkins & Tyler Reks

Stanford said he spoke to Air Boom earlier about the new crop of tag teams going at them and they said "bring on all comers." During the match, Reks and Hawkins worked on Bourne to wear him down, keeping him from tagging Kofi in.

The final moments of the match saw Hawkins miss on a flying chop at Bourne in the corner. Bourne crawled over and finally made the hot tag to Kofi, just as Reks tagged in. Kofi did a tomahawk chop to take down Reks, then knocked Hawkins off the apron. Kofi nearly had the pinfall win, but Hawkins rushed in to break it up. Bourne came in to knock down Hawkins, then delivered a big kick on Reks to knock him down. Moments later, Kofi connected on Trouble in Paradise. He tagged Bourne in, who went onto the top rope and hit Air Bourne for the win.

Air Boom celebrated in the ring, showing off their championship belts from the corners. Stanford and Matthews reviewed the match highlights on replay. The champs kept celebrating as Stanford signed off, and the show closed out.

Winners: Air Boom wins via pinfall over Curt Hawkins and Tyler Reks.
