I always recommend watching the episode first on TV or online before reading the rest of the report.

After the match, Ali & Hayes say they are still champions although they would have really enjoyed winning the trophy and the $5000 that goes with winning the Nightmare Cup.
Marcus Anthony comes out and says that he & Rob Terry will take the titles from them once Rob gets his work visa cleared up. He said right now he wants Jay Bradley to remember that they have some unfinished business.
Marcus leaves and the Best Team Ever comes out. They say that they don't believe Ali & Hayes are worthy of being tag team champions and the only reason they are is because they have yet to face them.
The Marauders are out next and they say that their fate in the Nightmare Cup was due to Josh Ashcraft being a puppet of the Furions, who were aligned with the higher-ups in OVW. Ali & Hayes tell them they should have a match next week and the winning team can face them at the next Saturday Night Special for the titles.
The Marauders stay in the ring for Flash to defend the TV Title.
