Now it's time for move over to the Raw brand.
Match #2 - Yoshi Tatsu (Tokyo, Japan) vs. Tyson Kidd (Calgary, Alberta)

He hits the ropes and comes forward but Tatsu hits him with a very tight spinning heel kick. Tatsu firing up now. Kicks landing all over the midsection of Kidd. Then he comes flying in with a knee to the face. Tatsu goes to the top but Kidd crotches him. He goes up with him and hits a Frankensteiner for two. Kidd goes to springboard for the elbow but Tatsu moves and Kidd turns right around into the high kick. Good night.

During the break, DiBiase slammed Santino on the floor and took over. He's working a headlock in the centre of the ring. DiBiase with a big clothesline for two. Santino goes for a sunset flip but DiBiase breaks it and hits a knee to the face. Another headlock for DiBiase but Santino gets out with a jawbreaker. He goes for a big boot but DiBiase catches it and starts pounding away.
Santino, though, gets going with punches, followed by the splits and the hip toss, but DiBiase puts a stop to that. He goes for the Dream Street but Santino slams him into the corner. He loads up the Cobra, hits it and that's the end of DiBiase.
