We open up with Cody holding the ring hostage, requesting Booker T. Michael Cole reminds Rhodes that Booker is not at the arena. Sheamus comes out and requests that his match go on. Cody does an impression of Sheamus that sounds more like Drew McIntyre. Sheamus answers with some impressions of his own, including a Vince McMahon “You’re Fired” impression that the crowd went ape for. Cody hits Sheamus with a cheap shot, however, Sheamus answers back and we go to commercial.
