Survivors: Shawn Michaels, Rey Mysterio and Great Khali.
Khali put Mysterio on his shoulder in celebration. Then they did a bit where Khali raised Rey and Shawn's arms, but they were so short, he was yanking their arms. They stood on the ropes so Khali could hold them up.
Eve Torres interviewed Triple H. Triple H said he wouldn't comment much on Jeff Hardy, other than to say that Hardy "scratched and clawed" his way to the top before, and he would do it again. Triple H then said we'd see the match we should have seen all along, HHH vs. Kozlov, one-on-one. Triple H talked about Kozlov having butterflies over his first big PPV match, and that tonight the undefeated Kozlov would have his first loss.
