As the referee was distracted, Finlay bashed Henry in the head with his trusty shillelagh. After taking out Finlay, Swagger tried the gutwrench powerbomb on Christian but failed. It was the first time a Superstar ever got out of Swagger's gutwrench powerbomb, and it was enough for Christian to get the pinfall for the tag team victory.
