IN THE RING
Jack Swagger + General Manager Tiffany + ECW World champion Christian: The show started with former ECW World champion Jack Swagger sitting on a chair in the middle of the ring to protest the travesty that happened to him at Judgment Day. General Manager Tiffany walked to the ring to try to convince Swagger to get out of the ring so they can discuss it in her office. Swagger said Christian cheated at Backlash, and cheated again at Judgment Day – and it wasn’t fair! Swagger said he doesn’t have to listen to Tiffany cause he is going to be around longer than her. Swagger called Tiffany a “temp.” Tiffany said this “temp” has the power to see it that Swagger never gets another title shot. Tiffany ordered Swagger to her office RIGHT NOW. Swagger stood up and slowly walked away from the ring, while Tiffany apologized to the fans and introduced the ECW champion… CHRISTIAN! On his way to the ring, Christian bumped into Jack Swagger (who was taking his time leaving). Christian tried to step aside, but Swagger shoved him off the stage down to the concrete – busting his knee in the process!
