IN THE RING The Great Khali & Ranjin Singh: The Great Khali cut a promo on Johnny Knoxville, stemming from an interview on Jackassworld.com where Knoxville asked Khali about the size of his penis. Khali was disrespected and walked out of the interview. Ranjin Singh said the Great Khali wanted to show that he had a sense of humor so he was going to host a kiss cam segment. The camera showed various couples, and then showed Lilian Garcia standing in the corner of the ring. Khali walked over and took Lilian’s hand and gave her a giant kiss on the lips!
DIVAS MATCH Kelly Kelly defeated Jillian Hall: Jillian Hall came out and started singing “Smells Like Teen Spirit” by Seattle’s own Kurt Cobain (of Nivana fame). John Morrison & Mike Mizanin joined on commentary for the match, but then Cryme Tyme showed up and wanted to do commentary too – which totally distracted from the match going on in the ring.
#1 CONTENDERS REMATCH Batista defeated John Bradshaw Layfield: World Heavyweight champion Chris Jericho acted as the referee for the match. Before the match, Jericho told Lilian Garcia to announce William Regal as the guest time-keeper, and Randy Orton as the guest commentator. The deck was stacked against Batista! All of the heels conspired to sabotage Batista, but Batista basically ran through all of them! General Manager Mike Adamle showed up and sent a real referee to the ring to count the 1-2-3 to make Batista the undisputed number one contender!
ON STAGE General Manager Mike Adamle: Mike Adamle said at Cyber Sunday, Chris Jericho will defend the World title against Batista. Adamle said the fans will vote on who the special referee will be; Randy Orton, Shawn Michaels, or Stone Cold Steve Austin. Place your bets.
