As D-Lo was distracted by Jarrett, Venis attacked him from behind, for an early advantage. Jarrett talked about taking the Intercontinental Title back and blaming Debra for losing it.

Snow said he wanted the Hardcore Title back, challenging The Big Bossman to a match for the Summerslam PPV. Bossman made his way down. As the crowd chanted, "Bossman sucks," Bossman said Snow knew he (Bossman) beat him before and it would happen again. Bossman said he had been wondering how many times it would take to beat Pepper to get him to talk. He talked about frying the dog on his nightstick and stepping on it.
