Announcers: Jim Ross & Tazz
The Undertaker + Jeff Hardy: The show started in darkness with a spotlight focused on a casket in the middle of the ring. The Undertaker voice came over the speakers, cutting a promo from the darkside about his Casket match at Survivor Series – promising to busy the Big Show six feet under. When the promo was over, the casket opened and the Undertaker sat up from inside. Jeff Hardy came up on the big screen with some freaky face paint and talked about living his whole life on pure emotion. Hardy said it was his insanity is exactly what will beat the Undertaker tonight. The Undertaker predicted that Jeff Hardy would “Rest in Peace!”

IN THE RING (CONTRACT SIGNING)
Vickie Guerrero & Chavo Guerrero + Vladimir Kozlov + WWE champion Triple H + Jeff Hardy: Vickie Guerrero hyped the WWE championship match and then introduced the challenger (Vladimir Kozlov) and the champion (Triple H). Triple H made some jokes at Vickie’s expense, and she yelled at him to get back to business. Kozlov signed the contract first, and then yelled at HHH in Russian. HHH talked about Kozlov’s lack of experience in championship matches. Jeff Hardy showed up and jumped off the top rope, putting Kozlov through a table – before ripping the contract up before throwing it in Triple H’s face!
Kung Funaki defeated Montel Vontavious Porter: The Great Khali came down and distracted MVP, allowing Kung Funaki to clock him with a Karate Kid kick for the win! Funaki wins! Funaki wins! Funaki wins! Khali then chopped MVP down and went into his Khali Kiss-cam segment..
IN THE RING (KHALI KISS CAM)
The Great Khali & Ranjin Singh + Montel Vontavious Porter: Ranjin Singh pulled a “big” and “old” redhead out of the audience and asked the Great Khali to kiss her! Khali said he wanted to see her kiss MVP instead. MVP started to wake up just as the woman got down and gave him a sloppy kiss!
SMACKDOWN! DIVAS TITLE MATCH
Michelle McCool defeated Maria Kanellis by Submission to retain the SmackDown! Divas title: Michelle McCool made Maria tap out to the Heel-hook rather quickly to keep her championship. The bell rang and Festus (w/Jesse) jumped into the ring to console Maria and gave her a teddy bear.
EXTREME RULES MATCH
Jeff Hardy defeated The Undertaker: Late in the match, the Big Show ran down and attacked the Undertaker. Jeff Hardy jumped off the top rope, but the Big Show caught him!

Jeff Hardy + Vickie Guerrero & Chavo Guerrero: Vickie Guerrero told Jeff Hardy that if he can beat Triple H next week she will make the WWE championship match at Survivor Series a triple threat match. Hardy agreed, and said that if Vickie doesn’t make good on her promise he might go extreme on her!
