RAW General Manager Bret “The Hitman” Hart & SmackDown! General Manager Theodore Long + Randy Orton: Bret said for the very first time ever you could go on WWE.com and vote for the matches and stipulations live. Teddy thanked Bret for inviting him to RAW and said the fans may even decide the fate of the WWE championship. Bret said that everyone in the WWE championship Fatal 4 Way will be in action tonight and the fans will decide who their opponents are. Randy Orton came out with his arm in a sling. Randy told Bret to forget about viewer’s choice for a second because he has a choice for him. Randy said he wants Edge tonight. Randy said either Bret will give him Edge or he’ll go backstage and take care of Edge himself. Randy said Edge thinks that he can just take him out, but he’s going to make sure that he takes Edge with him. Edge came out and said if Randy wants a match that bad to give him what he wants so he can finish what he started. Teddy whispered something into Bret’s ear. Bret said since it was viewer’s choice he’s going to let everyone in the arena decide. Teddy said Edge will face Randy Orton in a debate, a sit up contest, or a one arm tied behind Edge’s back match. Obviously debate was the best choice but these idiotic fans chose one arm tied behind Edge’s back match. Edge said you couldn’t do that. Edge said it wasn’t fair to him. Bret wished him good luck.
