IN THE RING
Rey Mysterio + Drew McIntyre: Rey said last week when he was chokeslammed by Kane into the Gulf of Mexico he went about 15 feet under water with the wind knocked out of him. Rey said he couldn’t catch his breath and started to freak out. Rey said as he struggled to reach the surface he saw the face of his accuser; Kane. Rey said he’s been through a lot of things in his career but he has never been accused of something he didn’t do. Rey said he still can’t believe Kane accused him. Rey said he’s always been honest. Rey said he didn’t have anything to do with attacking The Undertaker. Rey said in his opinion Kane has always been very delusional. Rey said he doesn’t like caskets because they’re a symbol of loss and heartbreak. Rey said when he does die it’s not going to be Kane who judges him, the only person who can judge him is God. Rey said God knows who attacked Taker and so does he. Before Rey could tell who it was Drew McIntyre came out. Drew said they have names for people who wear masks where he’s from. Drew said Rey lurks in the shadows trying to gain trust from the masses. Drew said they call people like Rey criminals. Drew said Rey has been pulling the wool over people’s eyes for decades now. Drew said at the expense of The Undertaker, the truth has finally come out. Drew asked how Rey could do such a thing. Drew said Rey is supposed to be a hero to all those people. Drew asked if a hero would do nothing while Punk was falsely accused. Rey said it wasn’t his business. Drew asked if a hero would stand idly by while Jack was falsely accused and had to watch his father get hospitalized. Rey said that wasn’t his business either. Drew said it was okay because he admires what Rey did. Drew said he wish he had taken out Taker himself. Drew said there’s a difference between them. Drew said if he did it, he would have done it alone, but Rey needed help. Drew said someone like Rey isn’t capable of taking out someone like Taker but he is. Drew said he is capable of taking out anybody he chooses. Drew said he destroyed Christian’s arm so badly that doctors say he’ll never be the same again. Drew said after that match he had an idea to do the exact same thing to Rey tonight. Drew said he’s already spoken to Teddy and if Rey agrees Teddy will make it official. Drew asked Rey what kind of man he was and dared him to do the same thing to him that he did to the Taker. Rey asked Drew how he could dare to come out and disrespect him. Rey agreed to the match.

WWE SmackDown! General Manager Theodore Long & Rosa Mendes + WWE Women’s champions Lay-Cool (Michelle McCool & Layla El): Rosa was talking to Teddy when Lay-Cool came in and told Rosa to keep exercising.
