Bashir pushes Suicide out of the ring where Team No Limit beats the masked man down. Bashir hits a few moves which leads to a near fall. Bashir hits a back drop and heads to the top rope. Suicide catches him and takes control. Bashir hits a Jig n’ Tonic for a two count. Sheik Abdul Bashir gets the win after hitting the WMD on the X Division Title with some help from Kiyoshi.

Joe storms the ring and goes right after Booker T and not letting up. Booker T tries a few knees to stop Joe’s momentum, but only interference from Kurt Angle gave Booker T the advantage. Booker tries for an axe kick, but Joe hits a snap slam and gets the pin. This match was short and sweet. This was a nice preview of Lethal Lockdown. AJ Styles goes to talk to Joe, but Joe seems to tune him out. 3 out of 5 stars.
