NL Payback Themesong
At mid-show, the feed was reportedly cut by JBL, who was to be a special guest referee. He was arrested on the scene and brought in for questioning. It was later revealed that the newWestofrica stable of "Cotton-Eye" Joe Hennig, Kofi Kingston, and an unidentified third man were the culprits.
The arena for Day 3 was hand built by the nL fans. The arena itself is said to be equal to, if not greater than the Tokyo Dome. After months of waiting (due to a dispute between Dino which caused him to walk out of the group), the third part of the show was to occur on the night of May 18.

Dean Ambrose's new name is "The Million Dollar Dean" Ambrose.
Hogan does not give a fuck about the rules.
Hogan beat up Robinson because he owed him drug money.
Old Legacy Inc is too drugged up to compete in a match as a unit, thus causing them to go ape shit and get DQ'd.

Yokozuna could just be smoke and mirrors though.

a #1 Contender Match for THE BIG Gold Title
This match resumed on Day 2 of Payback.
Triple H, JBL, & Austin were taken in for questioning. Kofi was allowed back because he's "too nice a Jamaican man to do such a thing."
The NWO may be a brain washing cult.
The New West Ofrica - Cotton Eye Joe Hennig & Kofi Kingston - was formed as Hennig attacked Jack Swagger and Damien Sandow.
This time, it was the nWo who allegedly cut the feed, but both Hennig and Kingston were in the ring at the time, leading to speculation of a mystery third member of the nWo.

Match Card Day 3: Tokyo Edit
One Night in Bollywood (Jinder Mahal & Syxx-Pac) (c) def. RoManChus (Roman Reigns & Yokozuna)
It took 3 months for Jinder to find his partner, hence the delay.
Cody got jumped before the show. Roman has a moustache and they're relatives, it's okay.
Syxx was wearing a suspicious newWestofrica shirt.... hmmm
Yokozuna may have been dead; he was thought to be Kane for wearing red and black.
Jinder threw up the Wolfpac sign at the end.
Scott Steiner (c) def. Brock Lesnar and Ricky "The Shitty Charizard" Steamboat w/ Special Referee Big E Langston (Pap E Shango)
Copious amounts of cocaine is coming from Big E. He's a young lion referee who must pay his dues. He could possibly count to 5.
Brock's return after losing to Sin Cara, coming back younger losing a tattoo, and growing a goatee.
Steiner was thought to be a member of the new West ofrica, but just turned out to be a fan of them rather than a member.
Just how many boats are in this match? We don't know, Blake.
This is a hoss match, and the Dreamboat's the biggest hoss of all.
Pap E Shango is doing some voodoo shit.
Axshiiboomba from Steiner!
Pap E Shango has been fired.
Steiner wins with the Steinerline; Lesnar screwed with the rope break.
CRASH AND BURN!!!
Jack Swagger def. "Intellectual Savior of Dem Asses" Damien Sandow, "The WildBlack" Kofi Kingston & "The BIG Guy" Ryback (c)
Due to the feed being cut, the three contenders advanced to the main-event. It is unknown who the third man of the nWo is along with Kofi Kingston and "Cotton-Eye" Joe Hennig.
Sandow is representing Sin Cara and the Carabinet. The GM has graciously allowed him to main-event.
Kofi is representing the newWestofrica, hoping the third man will be revealed.
Swagger represents the Crew after partner Jinder retains the tag titles. He's still stomping on the Mexican flag.
Kofi is being called the WildBlack by the nL Universe and is the architect of the nWo (Hennig is the fox).
Ryback is the lone wolf, nicknamed WildBack. Is he allied with the Band, Crew, or nWo?
Sandow is pissed that the newWestofrica is trying to take over Sin Cara's shows.
Damien is christened as the Brainmaker (maybe).
Kofi has gone insane since joining the evil stable. He survived being put through tables multiple times. He hits the Paige Turner, hurting his twat in the process.
Swagger steals the BIG GOLD, dropping an elbow onto Sandow through a table - as Ryback superplexed Kofi!
The BIG GOLD is renamed the BIG AMERICA by new champion Swagger.
Dave Meltzer gave the match 5 stars, as it actually happened in the Tokyo Dome.
