After the match, an irate Gresham grabbed a chair and went into the ring with it. Jay Lethal came out and tried to calm him down. Gresham eventually regained his composure and shook Shelley’s hand.

Video Package: Bully Ray and Mark Haskins sound off
Bully said the first word that comes to mind when he hears Haskins’ name is “nobody.” He said Haskins’ wife, Vicky, was in the wrong place at the wrong time at Death Before Dishonor, where Bully powerbombed Haskins through a table after Vicky, who was sitting ringside, slapped Bully for attacking her husband. Vicky hopped the rail to check on Haskins, but security escorted her out of the building.
Mark Haskins said he is fed up with Bully’s games and called him a coward. Bully questioned whether Vicky wears the pants in the family. He said he saw more fire in Vicky’s eyes than he’s ever seen in Haskins’ eyes. Haskins said Bully has no idea who he is but he’s about to find out. Bully said he’ll be the last guy Haskins sees and the last voice he hears.
