WWE SmackDown kicks off with Edge walking down to the ring. He sits on a chair in the ring and says this entire thing with Seth started 7 years ago when Seth tried using him as a stepping stone. And 7 years later, all of those weeks after he beat him at Madison Square Garden, Seth kept calling him out even though he knew he was not medically cleared. Edge shows up to SmackDown and Seth goes to Edge’s home.
We cut backstage to see Seth watching. Edge says that was from his playbook because all of those years ago he slapped Cena’s dad. He says he underestimated him and he should not have done that because that would be like underestimating himself. And he never does that. Edge says they are very much alike and when they see their mistakes, they capitalize on it. At SummerSlam, Edge beat him. At Madison Square Garden, he underestimated him and Seth beat him.

The fans chant Seth you suck. Edge says he can go to Seth’s house and have an encounter with Becky but he won’t do that.
A few weeks ago Seth said he felt sorry for him and that was a mistake. You never feel sympathy for a devil and that’s what they are. Edge says he won’t hesitate to put Seth down and he will not have a second thought about it. And their story ends at Hell in a Cell. He tells Seth he knows he is watching and he wants him to listen closely. Edge tells him at Hell in a Cell, he is going to scar his soul and that is a scar that you never heal from. Edge drops the microphone and leaves the ring.
