During the match, the entourage attempted to interfere in the match. At one point, Dreamer stopped Stephanie and O'Neal, setting them up for a triple before he gave Stephanie a piledriver. After the match, Martinez slapped Dreamer across the face. Dreamer teased kissing her, but was grossed out. Martinez mounted and kissed him instead, leading to him placing her over his knee and slapping her bottom.
Christian Von Eerie appeared during the BxB Hulk vs. Sami Callihan match. During the finish, she hopped on the apron and beckoned Callihan over.
