MAIN EVENT Matt Hardy & Mark Henry w/Tony Atlas defeated John Morrison & Mike “The Miz” Mizanin: Matt Hardy got the pin after hitting a Side Effect on John Morrison. The finish was screwed up, because the Miz was supposed to break up the pinfall and totally forgot. The rookie referee (Wes Adams) had no choice but to count the pinfall and try to hid the dazed and confused look on his face. After the match, Mark Henry attacked John Morrison and Mike “The Miz” Mizanin.
