After the match, Gunner ran it and attacked Ray with a lead pipe.

Main Event. Robert Roode vs. Austin Aries vs. James Storm vs. Jeff Hardy
This is a non-title match. The title will be on the line on Sunday. It didn't take long for weapons to get involved. There was a ladder, chair, kendo stick and a table. Jeff lit the table on fire. Storm hit Jeff with the Last Call super kick. Aries then locked Storm in the Horns of Aries and forced him to tap out.
