IN THE RING (CONTRACT SIGNING)
Vickie Guerrero + Batista (challenger): General Manager Vickie Guerrero, who by the way is still in a wheel-chair, opened the show introducing Batista. Vickie Guerrero said Edge has already signed the contract, then she also signed the contract, but said that Batista had to defeat the Great Khali to finalize his World Heavyweight title shot. Batista said he would defeat Khali and signed the contract without reading it. Vickie said she added an amendment that if Batista loses against Khali then he will be banished from the WWE. Batista = Idiot – haha!

Eve Torres & World Heavyweight champion Edge + C.M. Punk: Edge said a loss for Batista tonight would be a loss for SmackDown!.

Punk showed up and reminded Edge that he could cash in his money in the bank any time, any place! Maybe even at your wedding!
