Gilbert Corsey brings out the NEW Anarchy Champion Dapper Dan. Dan says this isn't just Dapper Dan, it's Dapper and the People. Gilbert tells him that Al Snow has made the rule for the Anarchy division that the champion gets to pick the stipulation for their title matches. He says Dan will face the other 3 men that were in the final four of the tournament...Big Zo, Apollo, & Tony Gunn.
Gunn interrupts and says congratulations, but tries to talk Dan into an actual wrestling match and not using a gimmick for their Fatal 4 Way. Dan says it will be a street fight. Gunn says he isn't coming, and Dan says to man up and not be a chicken.

#1 CONTENDER for the WOMEN'S TITLE: Cali defeats Valerie Vermin. A slow start back and forth, but things pick up toward the end as Cali connects with an x-factor, then makes Val tap out to a cross armbreaker for the submission victory.

"The Real Deal" Randall Floyd defeats Shiloh Jonze. A good start from Randall. Randall gets distracted by Michael Hayes at the announce table and Shiloh takes advantage. Shiloh works Randall over and tries to use Hayes' mandible claw. Randall blocks it and hits the powerslam for 2. Shiloh regains control after catching Randall with a kick to the face. He goes to the top rope and jumps off into a cutter out of nowhere from Randall for the 3.
After the match, Hayes gets in the ring and admits he's impressed, but says Randall still has no idea what he is getting into. Randall says he is ready and plans to walk out as the new champion come May 12.
