IN THE RING
WWE Champion Triple H + Jeff Hardy: Triple H told everybody to go out and buy the Unforgiven DVD as soon as it comes out, party because he receives risiduals, and party because you have to see the three Championship Scramble matches! Triple H said only one man walked in as champion, and walked out as champion – pointing at himself. Jeff Hardy interrupted and congratulated Triple H, saying he truly is the King of Kings. Hardy started laying the praise on thick, calling Triple H a GOD. Triple H said he admires Hardy’s passion, and respects that Hardy puts his body on the line like nobody else and dances to the beat of his own drum. Triple H said he respects how Hardy always reaches for that brass ring, and he is always just one step away. Hardy said he didn’t have the right people to push him, he didn’t have the kliq, or DQ, or “the family.” Hardy said that if he did, he might just have what Triple H has. Triple H said Jeff’s biggest success came when he was teaming with his brother, Matt. Triple H said everybody said Jeff was the better Hardy brother, but Matt is the one who is a champion. Triple H said Matt kept Jeff straight, and now he hasn’t been able to focus on business to get what he wants most in life. Triple H said he doesn’t want to get into a bitter war of words, but the truth is he respects Jeff Hardy. Triple H said Hardy has one more shot at the brass ring tonight, and he hopes that Jeff proves him wrong. Triple H said no matter what happens tonight, when we get to No Mercy he will prove him right.

SIX DIVA TAG TEAM MATCH
Michelle McCool & Maria Kanellis & Brie Bella defeated Natalya Neidhart & Victoria & Maryse Ouellet: Brie Bella crawled under the ring again, but Victoria pulled her out by the leg. Brie suddenly got a burst of energy and rolled up Victoria for the 1-2-3! Keep your eye on Brie Bella cause this is going to get interesting sooner rather than later!

SINGLES MATCH
R-Truth defeated Chavo Guerrero by DQ after botched interference by Bam Neely: Chavo Guerrero yelled at Bam Neely and slapped him for interfering and causing him to get disqualified. Bam Neely shoved Chavo down and screamed at him! R-Truth took out Bam Neely, and then disposed of Chavo Guerrero too!

BACKSTAGE SEGMENT
Triple H & Shelton Benjamin: Triple H said Shelton Benjamin was the only one who didn’t get pinned during the Championship Scramble at Unforgiven. Triple H tried to stir the pot between Shelton and Jeff Hardy, leading towards the fourway number one contenders match later.

SINGLES MATCH
Festus w/Jesse vs. Kenny Dykstra ended in a No Contest: Jesse & Festus came down in jump-suits with “Moving Company” on their backs pushing a dolly and a cardboard box to the ring. What the heck? Kenny came down and cheap-shotted Festus before the bell. Jesse came in and punched Kenny, and then jumped out to ring the bell to start the match! Festus snapped when the bell rang and destroyed Kenny! Jesse slipped into the ring and joined Festus in the act of duct-taping Kenny to the dolly with bubble wrap and wheeled him backstage!

IN THE RING
General Manager Vickie Guerrero + The Big Show: Vickie Guerrero said the Undertaker threatened to take her soul at Unforgiven and send her to the firey depths of hell. Vickie said the Undertaker did not send her to hell, nor did he take her soul, and she is still the General Manager of SmackDown!. Vickie said she literally spit in the Undertaker’s face. Vickie said she didn’t do it alone, and introduced the man who helped her, the “World’s Largest Athlete” The Big Show! The Big Show said after Vickie’s family abandoned her, she came to him for help. The Big Show said everybody on the SmackDown! roster has to follow the wishes of the General Manager, including him. The Big Show said that the Undertaker thinks he is above that. The Big Show said he showed the Undertaker who is in charge on SmackDown! and called himself and Vickie a “power couple” – clarifying that there will be no wedding, and it was strictly business. Big Show said in order to get his title shot, he has to get Vickie what she wants – an apology from the Undertaker. Big Show said if Undertaker isn’t sorry now, he will personally make sure that he will be.

HANDICAP MATCH
Vladimir Kozlov defeated Sho Funaki & Scotty Goldman: What a strange pairing Funaki and Goldman are! Kozlov said that if he wasn’t going to be given any competition then he would go out and find some!

BACKSTAGE SEGMENT

BACKSTAGE SEGMENT
Triple H & Montel Vontavious Porter: Triple H questioned why MVP was even in the fourway tonight and hoped MVP didn’t choke like he did Sunday night!
