Renee Young interviewed Goldust backstage asking about the Cody/Stardust situation. Goldust said he and Stardust used to be on fire, but the darkness crept in, just like it did to him years ago. He said Stardust is a cancer on Cody and that he’s going to take on the difficult task of winning his brother back at Fastlane. Stardust showed up on a monitor behind them to say that gold dulls over time, but Stardust does not. He said he’ll win at Fastlane and make everyone forget the name Goldust.

Seth Rollins defeated Dolph Ziggler via pinfall. J&J was banned from ringside after their interference on the match on Raw. During this match, Kane and Big Show came to ringside as did Ryback and Erick Rowan. Late in the match, Zigger hit a huge clothesline to take control then climbed up top for a high risk move. Kane made a distraction. Rollins took advantage to hit a Buckle Bomb and then the Curb Stomp for the win. Post-match, J&J Security showed up to help Show, Kane and Rollins go after Rowan and Ryback. The faces fought back a bit, but eventually the heels overpowered them. Eventually the heels were able to put both Rowan and Ryback down for separate Curb Stomps from Rollins to close SmackDown.
