WWE Smackdown! Opener:

We start off with a video package highlighting last week’s events between Eddie Guerrero and Rey Mysterio. The music of Rey Mysterio then hit in the arena to start Smackdown, and he did not look pleased. Rey got on the microphone and said he has to give it to Eddie, he’s a great lier. He had him believe that they were like family. He played him for a fool, but he ain’t Eddie’s fool anymore. Rey called Eddie out to the ring to face him like a man. Rey said Eddie doesn’t want to walk away like a coward like he did last week. Eddie then made his way out, to no entrance music. Eddie slowly got into the ring while staring at Rey. Rey asked for an explaination, and Eddie said he has nothing to say to him. Rey asked what happened to brotherhood, and told him to look at him while he was talking to him.

Rey said those were just words, and words don’t mean a damn thing to him anymore. Rey shoved Eddie and said if he doesn’t want to talk, then maybe he will fight. Eddie said he never laid a hand on him like he just did to him. Rey said he never did, but he let MNM do all of his dirty work. Rey said they are going to fight, and they are going to fight right now. Rey slapped Eddie in the head and looked ready to get it on but Eddie just stared at him and said he isn’t going to fight him tonight, tomorrow night, or ever. Eddie dropped the mic and went to leave but Rey got in his face again. Eddie left the ring and Rey said he has been waiting for this, but Eddie would have none of it. Rey said Eddie must be scared that he will beat him again, and Eddie stopped but then continued on his way to chants of “Eddie Sucks”.


Rey was backstage with Theodore Long asking for Eddie Guerrero in the ring tonight. Chavo then entered and asked Rey who he thought he was. Chavo said Eddie treated Rey like a brother, but Rey ain’t ever gonna be a Guerrero. Rey said that’s right, and then nailed Chavo and the two brawled all over Long’s office. The referee’s then came in to break it up.

Referee: Charles Robinson

In the arena:

The music of John Bradshaw Layfield hit in the arena as the Limousine made it’s way out to the stage. JBL made his way to the ring with the old WWE Title belt as always. JBL got on the mic and said that for a suburb of New York, these people need to show more respect. JBL said he knows they want to see the WWE Champion, but what they want and what they need are two different things. JBL said he carries that belt around for his fans, because he knows how bad they want to chant his name. JBL said the champ is here. JBL said what happened at WrestleMania would have broke a normal person. If it was a normal person, they would have quit. JBL said normal people quit at their dreams, and that is why they sit there, and he stands here. JBL said he has been through everyone in the tournament to get where he needs to be, and now there is only one left, and that is John Cena. JBL said that Cena is a one hit wonder. The fans heavily chanted for Cena as JBL said Cena’s fifteen minutes of fame are up. JBL said he will destroy Cena at Judgment Day and make him a footnote in the history of the WWE, and he will be forgotten. JBL said his legacy will not be tarnished by anyone. JBL is not only a survivor, JBL is a wrestling god.

With that, the music of the WWE Champion hit in the arena as John Cena made his way down to the ring. Cena grabbed a mic and said everyone knows that JBL stole that title from his bag, and that is so sad. Cena told the crowd to stand up because the champ is here! Cena said there is a bit of truth to JBL, he is not a quitter. He is a lot of things, a millionaire, an ex-champ, he rides around with oily men called the Cabinet, he and Michael Cole are just friends, he doesn’t legally have a penis, but he is not a quitter. JBL said he is right, but Cena said neither is he. Cena said at Judgment Day, they settle it in a match with no countout, no disqualification, no submissions and no pinfalls. The only way to win is to make your opponent say that he quits, and he is talking about an I Quit Match. Cena said he is going to beat the hell out of him, and at Judgment Day when he speaks the whole world will hear what he has to say, the last two words to come out of his pathetic mouth before he passes out, will be I QUIT. Cena threw down the mic and JBL looked shell shocked.


Chavo was backstage with MNM talking to them about what Rey Mysterio tried to do to them earlier in the night.

In the arena:

The music of Kurt Angle hit in the arena as he made his way out to the ring for his Hometown Invitational. He told the referee and ring announcer to leave. Angle then got on the mic and said he is in no mood for this, and told him to get the hell out of his ring. The guy went to leave but Kurt told him to hold on a second and he changed his mind, and nailed him with the mic and then kicked and punched away on the guy. Kurt choked him in the corner and then nailed him with a pair of uppercuts. Kurt choked him out with a front face lock and then dropped him to the mat, and then mauled the face, before hitting a cross face shot. Kurt then hit the Angle Slam and locked in the Ankle Lock as the guy tapped like a drunk man. Angle got on the mic and said he is still waiting for an answer to his challenge, he said that Booker cost him something that means more to him than family, the shot at the WWE Championship.

The music of Booker then hit as he made his way out with Sharmell. Booker got on the mic and said he has an answer for Kurt, and he accepts the challenge for a match at Judgment Day. Now can you dig that? Angle said that’s great but it’s too bad that he’s going to make him tap out, and break his ankle in two, and it’s too damn bad that afterwards, he will have to go home with that gutterslut! Booker charged to the ring and went to work on Angle and sent him outside the ring. Booker nailed him and continued his assault on Angle. Booker held Angle for Sharmell to slap him, and told her to do it again and she did so repeatedly. Booker sent Angle back inside the ring but Angle hit a low blow and nailed the Angle Slam. Angle then stared at Sharmell and she ran down the aisle, but tripped over. Sharmell looked to have twisted her ankle, and Kurt slowly walked up to her and went to lock in the Ankle Lock but officials and referee’s came down to stop it before it could happen. Booker then checked on Sharmell as Angle was taken to the back. Booker carried Sharmell to the back as we went to commercial.
