Cole applies the Ankle-Cole lock, but Lawler gets out of it and starts to kick Cole in the corner. Swagger threw on the towel to end the match. Austin picked up the towel, and swiped his head with it. Swagger argued with the referee, and gets the Stone Cole Stunner. Cole argues with Austin. Lawler nailes Cole and goes to work on him. Drop kick by Lawler! Lawler delivers the punch from the middle rope, but pulls Cole up at two! Ankle lock by Lawler, and finally Austin accepts Cole tapping out. The King wins at 13:46.
After the match, Lawler and Austin celebrate with beers. Booker T comes in to celebrate as well, and does the spin a rooni! Booker T gets a beer, but Austin gives Booker T a stunner.
The anonymous general manager digs in. The GM says Austin over stepped his bounds referee, and disqualifies Lawler. Mathews read the decree. They are bleeping out alot of language Lawler tosses Mathews into the ring, and Austin stuns Mathews.
