After Sunday Night Heat, the pay-per-view event began with a tag team match for the World Tag Team Championship where the champions, La Résistance, defended their titles against The Dudley Boyz (Bubba Ray and D-Von). Throughout the match, both teams performed many offensive maneuvers, though The Dudley Boys were able to gain the upper hand when they executed a flapjack and cutter combination on Duprée. As D-Von covered Duprée, Rob Conway was disguised as a cameraman and hit D-Von with a camera while the referee was distracted. Duprée then covered D-Von for a successful pinfall, in the process retaining the World Tag Team Championship for his team.
