After the match, Zo is angry and Robbie tries to hit him with the belt. Zo ducks and slams him. He goes up for the Zo bomb again, but Ca$h Flo is out. Ca$h moves Robbie, and low blows Zo. He powerbombs him off the top rope as Josh Ashcraft rolls out to ringside in a wheelchair. Josh tells Ca$h to bust him in the mouth and says that Zo will not leave the Nightmare Rumble intact.
Big Jon gets in the ring with Gilbert Corsey and Gilbert says this is the first time he is interviewing him as Assistant General Manager. Jon says he likes the sound of that and tells Gilbert to say it one more time. Jon says as much as he misses performing each week for all the fans, he has enjoyed making Rocco Bellagio miserable for the last few weeks. He is out to name his opponent for the March 4 SNS, but Rocco is out to interrupt.
He asks why Jon should pick his opponent. As the longest-reigning champion in history, Rocco feels he should get a say in who he faces. Jon has an idea. He says if Rocco wins his match in tonight's main event, he will allow Rocco to pick his opponent and the stipulation. If he doesn't, then Jon will pick his opponent and the stipulation that if Rocco cheats, tries to get disqualified, or counted out, the belt will still change hands. Rocco agrees, but wants to know his opponent for tonight. Jon says it's Rev. Stu, and Rocco laughs. He says he has already taken Stu to Plungetown once before. Jon says not to take his match lightly, he heard that Stu will have some help from "the big man upstairs".
He tells Dean that his restraining order runs out on March 3rd, the night before SNS, and he wants a match with Matrix so he can beat him again. Dean talks about proper microphone etiquette and then says he will check into the restraining order, but he is nothing more than a TV personality. He can't just go around making demands, but asks the fans if they want to see it. The fans do, so Dean says the match is on if everything checks out. Shannon runs his mouth about how he will beat the "Young Pussycat" again as Matrix comes out.
Matrix grabs him as Dean tells him to put Shannon down. Matrix puts him down...by slamming him. He then says he needs to go on to the back. Matrix isn't hearing it. He goes up top and delivers a swanton bomb. Dean shakes his head and says his law goes for everyone across the board. Matrix is suspended for the next week.
Big Jon comes out holding Rocco's kneepad and says it must have fell off. He then says that at SNS, he will face this man...and out comes Justin Smooth!
This ended the TV taping.
Justin Smooth vs. Ca$h Flo ends in a no-contest. A good match up that sees Ca$h with the early advantage, before Smooth comes back. Smooth is able to connect with his running big boot finisher, but Ca$h rolls out of the ring. Zo is out and Ca$h starts brawling to the back with him, leaving Smooth in the ring to just watch.
As always, thanks for reading!
