Your main event is new Heavyweight Champion Heath
Slater defending against the former titleholder Tyler
Reks...

Heath Slater vs. Tyler Reks for the Heavyweight Title: The commentators note that the champion coming out first is unusual so Reks' status is still up in the air. Reks is introduced, but he doesn't come out...finally, he emerges with the assistance of several officials and Joe Hennig.
He's all bandaged up and Heath has no problem facing
an injured man...however, Reks is in no condition to
compete and Heath calls out Hennig instead...sounds
like an impromptu match!

Heavyweight Champion Heath Slater vs. Joe Hennig:
Hennig gets several near-falls in a row and tries to bail
out of the ring...however, he nicely counters the
Perfectplex by dumping Hennig on the top rope. The commentators give the Reader's Digest version of the
history here...former champ Hennig, stripped of the title
due to injury...these guys held the tag titles together...
and Hennig was the first to congratulate Reks when HE
won the title. Slater returns fire, but Hennig low-bridges
him out of the ring and dives onto him from the ring apron!
Heath turns the tide and cuts off a rally with a catapult
into the turnbuckles. The two trade near-falls...but Slater
misses a kneedrop off the top rope! Finisher-no-finisher-no-FINISHER and the Perfectplex finally hits...for 2 1/2! A
cheapshot out of the corner allows Heath to hit
Sweetness...for 2 1/2! Hennig grabs him in a small package,
but rolls through it straight into a second Perfectplex...for
the three-count! Joe gets the belt and is announced as
the new champion...that brings out Abe and his ladies.
Yup, just as I thought...the impromptu challenge didn't
include anything about the title being on the line, so
Slater's still the champion. As Hennig is yelling at
Washington, Heath grabs the belt right out of Hennig's
hand and levels him with it! The show closes with the
champion celebrating over an unconscious Joe Hennig...
