We begin with Meg dancing on the stage in front of the golden shower curtain. Fandango joins her and they dance their way to the ring for the first match.

He asks if she has ever made moves on anyone before. He asks Lillian if she has ever Fandangoed before. He says that it feels good. It feels real good.

He tells Lillian that she is a beautiful woman but there is nothing beautiful about the way she dances. He says that Lillian is just like each and every one of these people who butcher his name and mock his dance.
Fandango asks Lillian if she can at least pronounce his name correctly. He shows her the way . . .
but Santino Marella’s music interrupts and he tells Mr. Fandingle that he has a very insulting way about him. He is a rude person the way he talks to the WWE Universe and what he just did to Lillian. He says that it pains him to admit that Fandango has some good moves. That dance just looks like so much fun and the way the cheerleaders did it on YouTube. Santino says that he hopes that the WWE Universe does not mind if they mind him doing his version of the Fandingle. First he wants to introduce his dance partner and it is green. Santino brings out his cobra and he says that they are going to do a two-step all over his face.
Fandango goes after Santino while Santino dances and Santino drops down and Fandango goes over the top rope to the floor. We go to commercial before the match begins.
