Anyone who questioned Marella's inclusion this match needs only look at the reaction he received from the Milwaukee crowd to see how it was justified. The match seemed to be dragging on, and the crowd was chanting "Boring" up until Marella entered the bout. "The Milan Miracle" managed to eliminate both Rhodes and Barrett from the match, albeit with assistance. Marella stood out as the real star of the group, as he came in with the lowest expectations and exceeded them by leaps and bounds. Khali's presence was treated as a joke, as he was eliminated in 45 seconds, negating the build he received. Rhodes and Barrett gave solid performances, and Bryan continued to shine in his role. After the match, Sheamus officially sent a message to the champ to prepare for WrestleMania. Weird, yet amazing, to think that last year's dark match will be repeated as a world title match this year.
