After the match Omega cut a small promo getting in the face of a beaten Angels and instructed Nakazawa to get him a chair.

As the ref was still distracted with the two associates, Cody sets up for a dive through the middle ropes in which he is met with a shot to the head with the AAA World Tag titles by FTR.

However, he just can't connect with it and is met by a monstrous reversal which launches Orange in the air and crashes him hard onto the mat. Miro follows up with a savage Machka kick and finishes Cassidy's world title hopes with the Game Over.
