Edge & Christian vs. Hurricane & Citizen Storm
Overview: E&C enter the ring and ask Storm and Hurricane to leave the ring for a moment as they want to give the fans a 5 Second pose. Hurricane and Storm decide to in favour of the fans. E&C then say tonightís pose is in homage to their opponents tonight. They take out a green wig and a mask. Christian puts on the props and Edge then stands in the ring with a very serious face. Christian does the Hurricane pose to perfection while Edge still stands in a serious manner, mimicking Storm. Hurricane and Storm have enough and attack E&C.
Hurricane starts off with Christian. They trade punches back and forth, with Hurricane surprisingly coming out on top. He pummels Christian in the corner and then stands on the middle rope and hitís the ten punch with the crowd counting with him.
