In the gauntlet match challenge, "The Golden Greek" Alex Arion faced the team of DNA: "Sensational" Scott Reed, Max Bauer, and "The Talent" TJ Richter. In the event that DNA beat Alex Arion, he would be forced to retire. If Alex won, his brother Frankie would be reinstated. Arion pinned Reed nearly seconds into the match. He then was holding his own against Bauer who finally began to use his size advantage to take over on Arion. After proving unable to pin Arion, Richter commanded Bauer to take the sacrifice role and threw him a chair. Bauer deliberately got himself disqualified by bashing the skull of "The Golden Greek". Richter quickly got in the ring trying to steal the win to no success. In the end, the crowd erupted as Alex Arion rolled up Richter for the pin fall win. As a result, Frankie Arion was reinstated. Frankie, waiting at the front door stormed the ring cleaning house and hugging his brother after regaining his standing in NECW after a 10 month absence.
