The show started off with WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio making his way to the ring to the cheers of the hometown crowd. Del Rio got into the ring and said that this Sunday he will be squaring off with John Cena with his WWE Championship on the line, and tonight he was supposed to face the Big Show but that isn’t happening because of last Monday night and showed the crowd the video of Cena attacking him. He then went on saying he wanted to wrestle in front of his hometown crowd, but Cena robbed him of it but it is okay because he is going to make him pay on Sunday. As Del Rio tried to leave Teddy Long’s music hit and out he came saying that WWE medical staff cleared him to compete earlier today and that Del Rio is probably just trying to weasel his way out of the match, or that he is just too afraid to face the Big Show. Del Rio said that he would put Big Show in the arm breaker and make him tap. Teddy Long said that is good because that match will happen tonight.
