Rocco Bellagio comes out and says he wants Big Jon fired. He is ready to go to Dean Hill's office and see that it happens right now.
Big Jon comes out with Justin Smooth. Rocco says Jon is going to be gone, and he is going to break Smooth's leg. Smooth says he is taking the title and kicking Rocco's face in. Jon says he can feel the tension and lets Rocco know since he likes to be the main event, he will face Diamond tonight. He then says Smooth will be the special referee!
Dapper Dan is interviewed about his new attitude since dismantling the Circus. Dan talks about burning it to the ground and how he is going to the Nightmare Rumble to win. He is interrupted by LJ who says he will not be used as a stepping stone and wants another chance against Dan...
Dapper Dan defeats LJ. LJ gets in a little offense and looks like he might steal one, but Dan catches him with the Death Valley Driver for the 3.
He calls out a nurse who checks Shannon out and signs off that he can compete at the SNS.
Rocco is upset and hits Smooth in the leg from behind with the sledgehammer. Big Jon gets in the ring and big boots Rocco. Rocco looks like he wants to hit Jon with the sledgehammer and Jon is daring him. Dean Hill comes out to stop it. Rocco is furious and tells Dean he wants Jon reinstated. Dean says we are not messing up the SNS card this close to the show. Smooth worked hard to become #1 contender and will get his shot against Rocco then. As for Jon, he is Dean's assistant GM, but he tells Rocco to be careful what he wishes for!
This ended the TV taping.
