IN THE RING
Matt Hardy + Jeff Hardy: Matt Hardy said the black cloud will loom over Jeff Hardy’s head until he sucks it up and decides to fight him. Matt said he had some things to get off his chest – things he tried to tell Jeff but he wouldn’t listen. Matt said Jeff has been through a lot of highs and a lot of lows this past year including missing WrestleMania 24 due to a suspension. Matt said he missed WrestleMania 24 because of a legitimate injury. Matt said nobody gave a damn about his injury, but everybody wanted to know if Jeff was getting the help he needs and when he would return to the ring. Matt said Jeff locked himself in his studio and recorded songs and refused to be responsible for his actions. Matt said everybody expected him to come in and pick up the pieces. Matt talked about the series of accidents, and wondered who might have done it? Matt remembered a time right after Jeff was suspended, and he and his girlfriend decided to leave their house. Matt said he had to call Jeff and tell him his house was on fire and he couldn’t stand to watch Jeff lose everything. Matt talked about Jeff’s dog, Jack, who passed away in the fire (this story is legit by the way). Matt said sometimes accidents turn into tragedies. Matt pulled out a piece of Jack’s old leash and held it up in the air. Matt said he found it in a heap of ashes and has been holding it for a long time. Matt said he wanted to give it to Jeff as a token of his love for his brother. Jeff walked out to the ring and circled Matt before grabbing the microphone. Jeff said it was hard to believe that Matt was behind all the accidents. Jeff told Matt not to bring up his house, his dog, and everything he loves. Jeff said Matt doesn’t love him, he hates him. Jeff said that Matt hates himself more, because he is sick, twisted, demented…. Jeff turned around and said “and so I!” before tacking Matt and punching him! Matt retreated and begged for forgiveness saying “I love you, Jeff!” Matt walked away from the ring while Jeff sat in the ring getting emotional. Cameras caught Matt smiling as he was walking away from his distraught little brother.
DIVAS TAG TEAM MATCH
Maria Kanellis & Melina Perez defeated Michelle McCool & Maryse Ouellet: Melina Perez is the (RAW) WWE Women’s champion and Maryse Ouellet is the (SmackDown!) Diva’s champion. Maryse beat Melina in one-on-one action a few days ago on RAW. Melina pinned Maryse to get her win back from RAW. After the match, Michelle attacked Maryse and they had a brief catfight/brawl..
Edge & Chavo Guerrero: Edge complained about John Cena humiliating him on RAW. Edge complained about Vickie cheating on him. Chavo said noone knows Vickie more than him. Edge thought maybe Chavo was having an affair with Vickie too. Edge pinned Chavo against the wall and said nobody was going to take this championship away from him!
HIGHLIGHT REEL: WrestleMania 20…. of course, leaving out everything that had to do with Chris Benoit – the star of the show….
MONEY IN THE BANK QUALIFYING MATCH
Fit Finlay w/Hornswoggle defeated THE Brian Kendrick w/Ezekial Jackson: Big Zek decked Finlay before the match, and the referee did not send him backstage. Finlay was given a few moments to recover before he took the fight to Kendrick! Kendrick was running scared, and hid behind Ezekial, distracting Finlay long enough for Kendrick to gain the advantage. A few minutes later, Finlay planted Kendrick with the Celtic Cross to earn his spot in the Money in the Bank Ladder Match at WrestleMania 25..
MOVIE TRAILER: 12 Rounds, starring John Cena..
PPV PREVIEW: WrestleMania 25….
The Undertaker defeated Vladimir Kozlov: Two weeks ago, Vladimir Kozlov scored a shocking victory over the Undertaker on SmackDown!. A few days later, Shawn Michaels (Undertaker’s opponent at WrestleMania 25) defeated the “undefeated” Kozlov on RAW. So it is psychologically important for the Undertaker to prove that he can defeat the big Russian.
