Douchebags go over – and following the match, they’re attacked and stomped out by Empire – Joey looks for Regal, as head trainer, to stop it – but Regal says this is part of the training, you do what you have to do in the wrestling ring, the match matters – but it’s not the only way to win.
2. Light Tube Match: John Cena d. David Otunga
Hooligans got the better of Defiance in that program – and Sheamus gets the better of Orton here. It’s maybe an upset, given that Orton’s both a former IC and tag champ, but it signals the emergence of Sheamus as a legitimate threat. Hooligans become number one contenders for the tag belts and will face the winners of the tag title match later on tonight at Survivor Series. Orton looks despondent – as was set up in the build, there’s no one to blame for this; no partner, no manager, no authority figure – Orton’s lost clean in the middle to Sheamus, and its fair to wonder whats next for Defiance.
