Smith went to the top and missed an Alabama Jam. Both men were down as the referee counted them. Steiner drove him to the mat with a DDT and scored the pin.
Your winner, Scott Steiner!
A lot better than I expected going in. Steiner worked really hard here and so did Smith. Steiner absolutely had the biggest "star aura" of anyone on the show as kids were running to him as he came out and he'd spook them by being his crazy self. Very good and entertaining.

They faced off and muscled each other into the corner. Matthews broke clean. Matthews then disrespected Homicide by patting him on the cheek. Homicide went after him but was cut off and stomped by Matthews. Homicide made a comeback and sent him to the floor.
